Oct 7 - “Our Lady of the Rosary” © artwork by Brenda Nippert. Happy Feast Day Our Lady!

The Bible tells us that Mary treasured all the things that happened concerning her Holy Son in her heart. The Rosary, certainly one of the most popular devotions practiced by Catholics, gives us a way to do the same thing, bringing the lives of Jesus and Mary to life in our hearts.  Tradition tells us that Mary entrusted the rosary to Saint Dominic, who spread it far and wide.  By meditating on the four sets of five mysteries, while praying the repetitive prayers on the beads, we enter into a state of heart and mind that brings us closer to God and opens us up to receive His gifts of love and grace.
