Dear Parents and Guardians,
The month of October is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. Praying the Rosary is a great way to honor Mary, our spiritual mother. My mom’s mom taught me how to pray the rosary. Every time I was at her house, we prayed it together. Now that I’m 46 years old and both my mom and grandma have passed, I realize how meaningful praying the rosary with my grandma was. My mom gave my daughter her rosary which was blessed by the Pope when she was a student studying in Rome in the 1960’s. The afternoon my mom passed away, my husband, my daughter and I prayed the rosary together as a family, using my mom’s blessed rosary. It was powerful. I’d encourage you to find some time to pray the rosary as a family. If you’ve never done it, there’s not a better time to start. Fr. Burke Masters once said something that has stuck with me for years, “The rosary moves hearts to Jesus. Our world needs peace and the conversion of hearts to Jesus.” So true.
