When I attended Texas A&M University there was a derogatory term that you wanted to avoid at all costs. No matter what, you didn’t want anyone to call you a “two-percenter.”
The reference “two-percenter” was an analogy to “2% milk,” which is inferior to “whole milk.”
Aggies (i.e. students at Texas A&M) were labeled “two-percenters” if they didn’t have school spirit and didn’t partake in the university’s rich traditions. “Ah, you’re being a two-percenter!” was enough to jumpstart an Aggie and get them to volunteer for something.
So here’s a challenge for everyone on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary: Try to become at least a two-percenter when it comes to the Holy Rosary!
It takes about 15 minutes to pray the Holy Rosary. Given that there are 1440 minutes in each day, 15 minutes is just barely more than 1% of your day.
Will you give 1% of 1440 minutes each day to God?
