On this first Sunday of October, the month traditionally devoted to the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I would like to quote Pope Saint John Paul II
from his October 2002 Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariæ (“The Rosary of the Virgin Mary”):
Simple yet profound, it remains, at the dawn of this third millennium, a prayer of great significance, destined
to bring forth a harvest of holiness. It blends easily into the spiritual journey of the Christian life…. (§1).
It’s important to pray the Rosary. (By the way, the Rosary, as Pope Francis reminded us, is not a piece of
jewelry to wear or a decoration!) In meditating upon the various mysteries of the Rosary, each of us can be drawn into Christ’s life, death and resurrection. By doing so, we
can grow in Divine Love – God’s immeasurable, unconditional Love – asking that we might be in union with the Lord of our salvation so we can be more faithful, more
hopeful, more charitable.
Monday through Friday our parish prays the Rosary before the Most Blessed Sacrament at noon. Please consider coming by and uniting your voice with others in
prayer while meditating on the wondrous mystery of God’s Love among us.
Love, Father Tom
