OCTOBER DEVOTION – DAY – 23 – THE HOLY ROSARY – HEALING OUR FAMILY TREE

October 23, 2018frjohnma

A lot of “prayer contractors” have made so much money from our brothers and sisters who say they need healing for their family tree (Matt. 1:1-17). It is true that we can be affected by the effects of Original sin both in our human nature and our environment. But we cannot allow our family background especially failed relationships and immoral activities of our families to pull us down. Through Christ, through Mary, through our baptism, through the Eucharist and through the Holy Rosary, we can break all curses and negative effects of our family tree from befalling on us. St. Pope John-Paul II says: “A similar need for commitment and prayer arises in relation to another critical contemporary issue: the family, the primary cell of society, increasingly menaced by forces of disintegration on both the ideological and practical planes, so as to make us fear for the future of this fundamental and indispensable institution and, with it, for the future of society as a whole. The revival of the Rosary in Christian families, within the context of a broader pastoral ministry to the family, will be an effective aid to countering the devastating effects of this crisis typical of our age.”
