OCTOBER DEVOTION – DAY – 11 – THE HOLY ROSARY – OUR MENTAL HEALTH
Yesterday, 10th October 2018 was World Mental Health Day. Issues of mental health have become very pronounced, alarming and even oppressive. Awareness in this area is slightly slim and few who are informed, see mental health as mental disorder. We can also see it from the point of promotion and sustainability. Except, if there are already established issues that are inimical to our mental health, then we ought to quickly seek for help from professionals. Intrestingly, the Rosary stands out as a great mystical instrument that we can use to support our mental health. The question that readily comes to mind is how? The main threat against mental health is negative thoughts. Negative thoughts lead to meaninglessness, hopelessness and helplessness. It can also cause confusion, disappointment, failures, anxiety and depression. Praying the Rosary and its meditation promotes positive thinking. It also strengthens the brain and helps the mind to unite with God and remain connected. Rosary improves the power of concentration, intuitive faculty and fights depression. Please pray the Rosary. Promote it by speaking about it, buying and distributing it and send me at least one. Please pray for me.
