The Rosary in October

The Rosary in October
Next Sunday is Rosary Sunday and we celebrate the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary next week; a feast to remember many victories and advantages gained by the church in time of fierce persecutions in the 15th Century, through praying the rosary. In these times too we need to turn to our Lady and pray for help. Let us pray the rosary everyday this month asking our Heavenly Mother to embrace and protect us and lead us to her beloved Son, and in praying the rosary may it bring us closer to Jesus and Mary by meditating on the great mysteries of our salvation.

October is the month of the world mission

October is the month of the world mission.
Jesus said “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20.
Let us all redouble our efforts to make it a worthwhile and meaningful time as we work to try and help the missionaries and their projects throughout the world. Think of the people whose lives are so improved by the work, care, dedication and tirelessness of missionaries especially at this time of the global pandemic.

On Tuesday the Catholic Church celebrates the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary on its traditional fixed date of September 8th. Let us celebrate with joy the birth of the Virgin Mary, of whom was born our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Her birth constitutes the hope and the light of salvation for the whole world and her image is a light for the whole Christian people.
