Our Lady of the Rosary

The Rosary is one of the most powerful prayers we Catholics can pray. A lot has been written and preached about the rosary and it is an integral part of our Church History.

This particular feast of Our Lady of the Rosary was instituted by St. Pius V because the Christian victory at the Battle of Lepanto was attributed to the praying of the rosary.

Sadly, there is a lot of misconceptions about the rosary and it isn’t always an easy prayer to pray. It can seem monotonous at times but the purpose of the rosary is to mediate on the life, death, and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus. When prayed properly, and in the right spirit, the rosary can lift our hearts and souls to God. In fact, the rosary is so important, there are 15 promises attached to the rosary (as Our Lady revealed to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan de la Roche).

By the way, are you familiar with the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary? It is also known as the Altar Rosary Society and is world-wide. Most churches have an Altar Rosary Society and if there is one in your area, you should consider checking them out. I recently found out about them and joined the group in my parish. They do a lot of wonderful things for the church, both physically and spiritually.

So, on this beautiful feast day, don’t forget to take time to pray this most efficacious prayer! For more information on this feast go here and here.

God bless!
