The Rosary

The word rosary comes from Latin and means a garland – or crown – of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary. It is a Christocentric prayer (Christ is the focus), that invites us to contemplate various aspects of Jesus’ life, particularly those that point us to the salvific promises of our eternal home. Many Saints had a great devotion to the Rosary. Let us find encouragement in their words and imitate them in praying this powerful prayer:

“Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day be led astray.” – Saint Louis de Montfort

“Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.” – Pope Blessed Pius IX

“The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.” – Saint Padre Pio

“There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.” – Sister Lucia, of the seers of Fatima
