The Blessed Virgin Mary is at our home for Black Rosary

We are hosting the Blessed Virgin Mary statue at our home this week
and have religiously recited prayers every night since Sunday. Hosting
the statue at a family's home is commonly known as "Black Rosary" and
usually occurs in October but it's making the rounds in our
neighborhood early. I had always wanted to get my family to join in on
the prayers each night but everyone is busy and lives far away. I
remembered that my Mom had Skype recently setup with a webcam so I
thought I would web conference us together to say our 10 Hail Marys
and recite the five Holy Mysteries each evening. Last night was our
first web conference via Skype and we did run into some problems. My
Logitech webcam's microphone would switch off when I establish the
video conference via Skype so we instead used our land line in
addition to video on my big screen. That's more ideal because the
video and voice are on different channels, making the experience more
fluid which is improtant when a group of people are needing to
synchronize the prayer readings with each other.

More importantly, if you want to join in on our rosary web session, we
have the statue of Virgin Mary until Saturday October 1st at 1pm so
let me know before then. We can do Skype, Adobe Connect, Yahoo
Messenger, or Windows Messenger.
