OCTOBER DEVOTION – DAY – 19 – THE HOLY ROSARY – A TOOL FOR DISCERNMENT
I thank God for the gift of the Holy Rosary. I am particularly grateful for the gift of the Holy Rosary as I look back on my journey towards the priesthood. The ROSARY has helped me a lot. It has informed and improved my powers of concentration, meditation, contemplation, spiritual choices, intercession and spiritual insight about God and life. In the course of discerning the vocation to the priesthood, the ROSARY helped me in my prayer life and my ability to listen and see God through the discernment process. Today, the ROSARY is still supplying me with quantum graces. Thanks to our Lady of the HOLY ROSARY. My early faith life was associated with several spiritual battles and I remember many of my associates suggesting very syncretic means for me to escape the reality that bedeviled me and manipulate my way through life. But I refused and relied on the ROSARY. At the end things turned out well and I experienced a transformation and renewal in life. Nowadays, I am still confronted with numerous challenges but the ROSARY has remained a special tool for my discernment process. Please pray the ROSARY!
