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 week of October 14- 21 is requested by The Dempsey Children in memory of their mother Anna Dempsey.

LOTTERY TICKETS: If you did not purchase your lottery tickets for November, they are available. Please try to help with this project.

BUILDING FUND: We wish to thank Frank & Marion Kulick for their donation to our Parish Building/Improvement Fund, in memory of Frank’s mother Eleanor Kulick.

RUMMAGE SALE: We thank all those who contributed to the Rummage Sale. Your items for the sale were greatly appreciated. And to those who donated the monetary gifts, baked goods, food, etc. that was a big help.

PYROHY SALE: A Pyrohy sale is in the planned for December 1, 2, 2014. Of course, we do need all the help we can get to make this a success. Come join the workers, all kinds of jobs are available to help out and the more help the less for others. We do have people who do not belong to the parish that comes to help but still more is needed. Try it!

PRAY FOR UKRAINE: Please participate in offering Prayers for Intercession for Ukraine to the Servant of God Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky at our Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 833 Franklin St., Phila., PA on Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 with a Moleben to Metropolitan Sheptytsky beginning a 4:00 PM. A candlelight procession will follow to the monumental statue to this Servant of God located on the Cathedral grounds.
Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky led the people of Ukraine through a time of invasion and occupation by both Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union. His faith persevered and inspired an oppressed people as they coped with those aggressors. Today, his saintly soul awaits our petitions for his intercession for our beloved Ukraine facing a new aggressor. Come and pray as one family, as one people for those who need our prayers and support.
