Today, the modern Christian needs to pray like the Apostles “Lord increase our faith” (Luke 17:5). Our faith is growing cold as many have observed and this is because of the shortfall in knowledge. Knowledge is key when we talk about faith. Therefore, St. Pope John-Paul II avers that “The Rosary is also a path of proclamation and increasing knowledge, in which the mystery of Christ is presented again and again at different levels of the Christian experience. Its form is that of a prayerful and contemplative presentation, capable of forming Christians according to the heart of Christ. When the recitation of the Rosary combines all the elements needed for an effective meditation, especially in its communal celebration in parishes and shrines, it can present a significant catechetical opportunity which pastors should use to advantage. In this way too Our Lady of the Rosary continues her work of proclaiming Christ. The history of the Rosary shows how this prayer was used in particular by the Dominicans at a difficult time for the Church due to the spread of heresy. Today we are facing new challenges. Why should we not once more have recourse to the Rosary, with the same faith as those who have gone before us? The Rosary retains all its power and continues to be a valuable pastoral resource for every good evangelizer.”

    The Rosary!!! Sheee!
    Whenever a MOTHER is involved, it’s always powerful; not to talk of Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    I pray that God should give us grace to be patient and mediate deeply while praying the Rosary. Amen! It is a very rich and wonderful prayer.

      “The Rosary!!! Sheee!
      Whenever a MOTHER is involved, it’s always powerful; not to talk of Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The foregoing assertion is full of insight and meaning. God bless you immensely. Amen
