THE DAILY ROSARY
The Rosary is the easiest form of prayer. At the same time the Rosary is a most excellent prayer because it is composed of the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory be to the Father. Besides these beautiful and sublime prayers, which compose the Rosary, a short meditation – which constitutes the soul of the Rosary – is added before or during each decade. The Rosary unites in itself mental and oral prayer because we pray and meditate at the same time. The Rosary is the most beautiful flower that, in the course of the centuries, sprang forth from the devotion to the great Mother of Our Savior. This prayer is now the most popular among the Children of Mary. In the past it has proved a powerful weapon against heresies, as instrument of social reform, and a form of petition most acceptable to God.
The doctrinal content of the mysteries contemplated in the recital of the Rosary is very important. Jesus and Mary dominate the chain of events. They are central persons in each mystery. They were united in the Incarnation and Redemption, and now are together in eternal life.
By contemplating the mysteries of our faith, we are incited to imitate Jesus and Mary, and the Rosary becomes an important school of Christian perfection because it focuses our lives on the two who are most worthy of true imitation – the Son of God and His Immaculate Mother.
The Rosary is essentially a prayer to Our Lady. It is not Mariolatry because Jesus is not forgotten in its recital. Mary speaks to her Children when they say the Rosary. She speaks a language all can understand, for the Rosary is, outside the official Liturgy and other church services, the most widely used public prayer. It is not reserved to any class of people. Illiterate as well as learned men equally recite it. The Pope, Bishops, priests, religious and nuns say it.
Our Blessed Lady encouraged the recital of the Rosary on several occasions, especially during her apparitions at Lourdes and Fatima. The Rosary is a powerful means of salvation, a source of consolation, a guarantee of forgiveness of our sins, a powerful defense against temptations, a sign of eternal predestination, a spiritual mine of innumerable blessings and supernatural benefits and the best means of honoring the Mother of Perpetual Help. The Saints say that we place a beautiful crown on the forehead of our heavenly Queen when we recite the Rosary. It is, therefore, no wonder, that the Blessed Virgin Mary is so generous to those who honor her with the daily Rosary.
The Church granted five-year indulgence for the recitation of the Rosary; if said with others, ten years. The Church enriched the Rosary with so many indulgences to encourage the faithful to recite it and to make it their daily prayer in honor of the Mother of God

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn this week October 13 – 20 by Helene Sirak in memory of her husband Michael Sirak.
