The Rosary

Balloon Rosary

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.

You were chosen by the Father;
You were chosen for the Son.
You were chosen from all women
and for women, shining one.

Blessed are you among women,
blest in turn, all women, too.
Blessed they with peaceful spirits.
Blessed they with gentle hearts.

Gentle woman, quiet light

Prayer for a Family

Prayer for a Family

O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus, and our Mother, pray to Jesus for our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle of the newborn, the schools of the young, and their vocations.

Blessed Saint Joseph, holy guardian of Jesus and Mary, assist us by your prayers in all the necessities of life. Ask of Jesus that special grace which He granted to you, to watch over our home at the pillow of the sick and dying, so that with Mary and you, heaven may find our family unbroken in the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Amen.

Mary tucking Jesus in bed
