Topic - Annual Tricky Tray on Friday, Oct. 24th.
THE ROSARY – A PRAYER FOR ALL SEASONS
The Rosary has been one of the most popular
devotions among Catholics worldwide for many years.
A commonly held belief is that St. Dominic received
the rosary during an apparition in the 13th century. He
and his followers promulgated the prayer down
through the centuries.
When Mary appeared to the three children in
Fatima at the turn of the last century, she identified
herself as the Lady of the Rosary. She impressed on
the children how important it was to pray the rosary
daily for world peace. From that time on praying the
rosary has become a very important part of Catholic
Devotion.
In the introduction to his Apostolic Letter on the
Rosary written in 2002, Pope John Paul II emphasizes
that though we pray for Mary’s intercession, the rosary
is truly about Jesus. It is “at heart a Christo-centric
prayer” that can be seen as a short summary of the
Gospel. We pray to Jesus in the company of His
mother .
With Mary, we contemplate the mysteries of the
life He shared with her. Even in the words of the Hail
Mary itself – it is Christ who is the ultimate object of
both the angel’s announcement and the greeting of the
mother of John the Baptist: “Blessed is the fruit of your
womb.”
Mary lived with her eyes fixed on Christ. The
memories of Jesus impressed upon her heart were
always with her – leading her to reflect on the various
moments of life at her son’s side. In a way these
memories were to be the “rosary” which she recited
uninterruptedly throughout her earthly life.
In the recitation of the Rosary, we enter into
contact with the memories and reflections of Mary.
Contemplating the scenes of the rosary in union with
Mary is a means of learning from her - the message of
Jesus’ life. As we reflect on each mystery, Mary calls
us to be receptive to God’s Word, to ponder it in our
hearts and to act on it in our everyday lives.
During this month of October devoted to the
Holy Rosary, let us then renew our devotion to Christ
by praying the rosary with His loving Mother.
Sincerely in Christ,
Father Chris
