Today the Church celebrates the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary. This memorial can be traced back to the victory of the Christian fleet over the Turks in 1571, thus preserving Christianity in Europe. Pope Pius V attributed this victory to the recitation of the Holy Rosary. The rosary is the source of many graces and can be a powerful weapon in our battle against the forces of evil.
If prayed on a regular basis, the rosary will allow you to grow closer to Christ. Just as God gave us Jesus through Mary, the most effective way to become closer to Him is through His Mother. Despite what some people may claim, the rosary is not about “worshipping Mary”…it is about asking our Mother to take us by the hand and lead us to Jesus.
