There is no person closer to Jesus than His mother. Our Lady’s prayers are very powerful. As Saint Padre Pio says, “Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today.”
The Rosary is not a prayer of vain repetitions, but very scriptural, and a beautiful meditation on the mysteries of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the eyes of His mother. The Rosary is not Mary-centered but Christ-centered. Each bead you touch is like holding the gentle hand of His mother and walking through the gospels, as she leads you closer to her son.
Nobody loved Mary more than Jesus did. We honor Him more by loving his mother.
Mary’s soul always magnifies the Lord. If you want to grow closer to Christ, and develop a deep personal relationship with Him, pray the rosary.
