The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary
Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary! In fact, the whole month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary!
We have been making a point to say the rosary together as a family each night (it had been hard to do when hubby was gone!). Later today we will also be meeting a couple other families at the park (unless the weather stays yucky… then they’ll come here), to Pray the Rosary, color Charlotte’s beautiful Our Lady of the Rosary Coloring Page, and eat our Cupcake Rosary!
Queen of the most holy Rosary, in these times of such brazen impiety, manifest thy power with the signs of thine ancient victories, and from thy throne, whence thou dost dispense pardon and graces, mercifully regard the Church of thy Son, His Vicar on earth, and every order of clergy and laity, who are sore oppressed in the mighty conflict. Do thou, who art the powerful vanquisher of all heresies, hasten the hour of mercy, even though the hour of God’s justice is every day provoked by the countless sins of men. For me who am the least of men, kneeling before thee in supplication, do thou obtain the grace I need to live righteously upon earth and to reign among the just in heaven, the while in company with all faithful Christians throughout the world, I salute thee and acclaim thee as
Queen of the most holy Rosary.

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
