Personally, I think this is a great idea. Let your youth groups and religious education directors know! From Praying the Rosary with Catholic celebrities – Catholic Digest:
The power and relevance of the Rosary in today’s world is the message “Rosary Stars: Praying the Gospel” is trying to send young Catholics. The DVD, produced by Family Theater Productions, a Catholic television and radio production company in Hollywood, features 21 Catholic celebrities who pray the Rosary with viewers and offer reflections on the Mysteries and on how prayer has made a difference in their lives.
The project began taking shape in 2002, when Father Wilfred Raymond, CSC, national director of Family Theater Productions, began organizing informal focus groups around the country to determine how to best bring the Rosary to young Catholics.
“What would make the Rosary appeal to you?” they were asked. One, they said, if it were electronic. Two, if the Rosary’s instructions, history, and purpose were accessible online. Three, if professionals visible in the culture — like actors and sports figures — were involved.
I try to pray the Rosary with my own kids. We keep Rosaries in the car and we’ll rattle off a decade or two as time allows. And it’s amazing how much time is allowed between all the shuttling we do.
