Month of the Rosary

If you couldn't guess from the title, October is the month of the Most Holy Rosary!  This is a month when the Church really encourages us to blow the dust off those old beads and put them to use.  October 7th marks the feast of the Most Holy Rosary, so consider praying a rosary to honor our mother on this particular day. 

If you have any questions on how to pray the Rosary, this history of the Rosary, or where to get one, check out for some good information.  The rosary is one of the most peaceful and meditative prayers we can pray.  It calls us to reflect on stages during Jesus' and Mary's lives while asking Mary to join us in prayer for the needs of our heart. 

This month I ask you to  give the rosary a try if you haven't for a while.  Don't have a rosary on hand?  It's no coincidence that you have ten fingers, I guess.  Particularly as we go through this 40 Days for Life Campaign I'd encourage everyone to to pick up a humble set of beads to unleash the intercessory power of Mary, our mother and Queen of Heaven.  Our mother, Mary, wants to be part of our lives...if you ask her to intercede for you, I can guarantee you that she will!

there it is queen of heaven(pagan origin) and I hear sister Angelica and Mary lifters want to ask the pope to have divine revelation and speak ex-cathedra and declare a new dogma of faith,that she is indeed queen of heaven or something like that ,a two fold description of her estate and being in the heavenlies. Of course, somewhere scripture can be grasped to allow this and for sure, tradition, going back to Peter.AFTER ALL ,DEVOUT CATHOLICS WOULD NOT SEEK AND ASK FOR SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT SO,WOULD THEY.....? AND YES ,SHE INTERCEDES,AS DO ALL THE SAINTS,JUST LIKE PAGANS.THE JEWS DID NOT PRAY TO THE SAINTS,NOR DID THE EARLIEST OF CHRISTIANS ,UNTIL AFTER CONSTSANTINE DECLARED CHRISTIANITY THE STATE RELIGION,AND YOU HAD A HUGE INFLUX OF PAGANS,WITH MINIMAL FILTERING OF PAGAN WAYS.i AM SORRY BUT TOO MANY CATHOLICS HAVE GUIDANCE,CONVERSATIONS ILLUMINATION FROM TOO MANY DEAD PEOPLE ,INSTEAD OF THE HOLY SPIRIT .THERE IS NO DIVISION AMONGST ALL CHRISTIANS THAT THIS IS BIBLICAL.WHY DO SOMETHING THAT SEPERATES YOU FROM HALF THE CHURCH ?

OK, I know this is an old post and the discussion won't be picked up or followed, but I have to say this:

Anonymous: Please, slow down, take a deep breath (ease off the CAPS LOCK) and try to say what you're thinking. I've read your comment a few times and can't figure out what you're trying to say.

Breathe into a bag for a few seconds, take a deep breath and have another go....
