“The Rosary is my favourite prayer. A marvelous prayer! Marvelous in its simplicity and its depth… Thus, the simple prayer of the Rosary marks the rhythm of human life,” (St John Paul II and YouCat nos. 480 & 481).
We should not put curses on our enemies, but instead plead for God’s graces through prayer. The Rosary is both a form of prayer and a specific sacrament that aids in prayer. Praying the rosary involves recitation of common prayers while meditating on various events, called mysteries, associated with the life of Christ.
Our Lady has repeatedly asked , through the prayer of the Rosary and by meditative prayer over the mysteries of Scripture, that we learn our faith “by getting down on our knees” and call on the peace of God. Mary is always in an attitude of prayer before God in heaven. The regular recitation of the Rosary, is a joining with Mary in Her prayer and asking for Her assistance.
The Rosary can be a wonderful prayer of intercession. It can be prayed for a particular intention such as world peace or the needs of a family member and community. As we begin this month of the rosary in our homes and community, we ask Mary to continue to bring Jesus and His message into our lives.
We invite all to unite in prayer in your respective BECs, families or individually and have a special Rosary for Peace especially in response to the tensions in war torn countries for the whole month of October, the month of the Rosary. Ave Maria!
Mother Mary Prayer for us. St Joseph, Pray for us.
