On October 7, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the yearly feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. It is a very special feast, sacred to all those who have special devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
In the Constitutions of the Daughters of Charity, it says: “By daily meditation of the Rosary, the prayer of those who are poor and the contemplation of the miseries of Christ, they express their love and gratitude to Mary.”
Here are a few other quotes about the importance of saying the Rosary:
“Continue to pray the Rosary every day.” – Our Lady of Fatima to Sister Lucia
“You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.” – Our Lady to Blessed Alan de la Roche
“‘Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee!’ No creature has ever said anything that was more pleasing to me, nor will anyone ever be able to find or say to me anything that pleases me more.” – Our Lady to St. Mechtilde
Hopefully, during this month dedicated to our Blessed Mother, the Rosary will become more a part of your everyday prayer life.
