OCTOBER IS THE MONTH OF THE ROSARY

The Rosary will be prayed before all Masses during October. Please join in praying the rosary which begins one half hour before Mass. Pope John Paul II was quoted as saying, "In the past, the prayer of the rosary has helped to safeguard the integrity of the faith of the people of God. May the fervent practice of this prayer sustain the Church in the passage toward the third millennium, so that it will continue to be a prophetic 'sign and instrument of the intimate union with God and of the unity of all mankind' (Lumen Gentium, 1) For this intention and for all the needs of the Church and of the world, I ask you all, especially the children, families and the elderly, to raise a common invocation to Mary during the whole month of October. Let us ask the Blessed Virgin to help the Church to be, ever more and ever better, the bridge that unites man with God, and men with one another. Let us pray so that peaceful understanding and respectful dialogue between peoples, cultures, and religions will be promoted and favored. Mary, Virgin of the holy rosary, pray for us!"
