The Rosary is one of the best prayers to Mary, the Mother of God.
It is also in October that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared for the last time to the young children in Fatima, Portugal, asking them to say the Rosary and to pray for peace in the world.
As Mother Nature fills our eyes with the splendor of autumn, I encourage you to walk and enjoy yourself by saying your Rosary. Listen to Mary as you meditate the mysteries of the rosary in thanksgiving for all the favors we have received through her intercession. Let us also thank God the Father for all that He has given us, especially His unconditional love.
Think of the needs or struggles that you may have in your life and bring them to Mary. She cares for you like a loving mother, and wants to take your needs to Jesus. During this Pandemic let us pray for the sick and for the caregivers.
Blessed Marie Rivier had a filial devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary; her rosary beads were always close at hand. She had a great trust in her intercession. She obtained everything from God. “ I did everything by means of the rosary,” she once said.
