Introduction to the Rosary [For October 1 only]

The devotion of the Holy Rosary has been treasured in the Church for many centuries. It is a
facet of the Christian Faith in language and prayers inspired by the Bible. The Rosary is one
of the best prayers in common that Christian families are invited to recite both publicly and

Remember the desire of our Lady when she appeared to Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, the
three little children at Fatima? She said: “I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn
the faithful to amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. People must not continue to
offend our Lord, already so deeply offended. They must say the Rosary.”

Lastly, the Rosary could be a means of tying and keeping together all the members of the
family or community. The well-known, Irish-born Fr. Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., founder of the
Family Rosary Crusade said: “When Mary is invited into the home and beseeched repeatedly
with the words, ‘Pray for us now and at the hour of our death,’ she will defend its members
and protect them against the overwhelming evils of today at the two most important
moments in their lives – now and at the hour of our death.” The same Fr. Peyton also
declared: “The family or community that prays together, stays together.”

Today will we be praying the _______________Mystery, may this rosary prayer show our
deep love for our blessed Mother and bring us closer to her Son Jesus Christ.
