OCTOBER, MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY

OCTOBER, MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY

-Fr. Rolly Arjonillo, priest of Opus Dei. CATHOLICS STRIVING FOR HOLINESS, writes: 

Our Lady asked us to pray the Holy Rosary for the CONVERSION OF SINNERS and IN REPARATION  FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD on many occasions, and this we would gladly do; but, at the same time, I encourage you to ask her as well −aside from our PERSONAL INTENTIONS−,  for the CHURCH’S PROTECTION FROM THE DEVIL, for the FRUITS OF SYNOD FOR THE YOUTH which will begin this month; for PEACE in the world; for all those who are SUFFERING in this world due to war, terrorism, persecution,  illness, poverty, injustices, unemployment etc.; and, for the HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY. 

Let us not forget what St. Josemaria said: 

 “Today as in other times the Rosary must be a powerful weapon to enable us to win in our interior struggle and to help all souls. Exalt holy Mary with your tongue: God asks you for reparation, and for praise from your lips. May you always want to know how to spread peace and happiness throughout the world, through this beautiful devotion to our Lady, and through your watchful love.” (St. Josemaria, “Holy Rosary,” Preface and Note).” 

PRAYER

Mother Mary, Mother of the Church,

Queen of families, Queen of Peace:

through your loving maternal intercession,

may we get closer to God,

may we fall in love more with Jesus,

may we help a lot of souls,

during this month of October

by praying the Holy Rosary daily. 

Queen of the Holy Rosary,

pray for us!
