Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds him.“~St. Padre Pio

1. All Catholics Should Pray the Rosary

Why pray the Most Holy Rosary? The answer is actually quite simple: It is the request of the all Power Virgin Queen and Mother, Mary. However, one cannot truly call themselves a Roman Catholic if one does not write an entire volume explaining why.

2. The Woman-Made Psalter

The Most Holy Rosary is simply the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary. When our most August Queen Mum appeared to St. Dominic in the 13th century she gave him specific instructions on how to pray Her Psalter. Today when one says they “pray the Rosary” they often mean just a third of Her Psalter, for the Most Holy Rosary consists of all 15 Mysteries. The Rosary isn’t a “man made” prayer as most Protestants and even heretical Catholics claim. In fact, it is woman made, the Holy Theotokos Herself revealed this glorious and most perfect prayer. read more

How Our Lady Granted Victory at Lepanto

How Our Lady Granted Victory at Lepanto

By Jeremias Wells
Battle of Lepanto
The Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571.

In times of acute danger and hardship, we must always fly into the arms of the most powerful Mother of God and turn to the recitation of the Rosary. The Battle of Lepanto is a great lesson of confidence for us today.

When Saint Pius V ascended to Saint Peter’s throne, Christendom faced perils perhaps unequaled in its history of continual conflict, not the least of which came from the agitated and violent followers of Mohammed.

All the information and intelligence that Pope Pius V had been gathering indicated that the Ottoman juggernaut was about to roll across the Mediterranean and adjacent lands, spearheaded by the Turkish fleet, with Italy and Rome as one of its targets. No nation could stand up to the marauding infidels and the candidates for an alliance were few. read more

Readings & Reflections: Wednesday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time & St. John Leonardi, October 8,2014

The intimacy with the Father that the disciples witnessed in the Lord’s eyes moved them to beg, “Teach us to pray.” They want to live a humanity that is as rich and deep as his. Christ entrusts them with the Gospel: the privilege of calling God “Father.” In hallowing his name, calling for his kingdom, and mirroring his forgiveness, they become resplendent sons.

During his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis explained on how to pray well. He said that when Christians pray, they should remember their own sins as well as their own personal history with Jesus.

POPE FRANCIS “When Jesus says to Martha: ‘You worry and are troubled by many things, but there is only one thing you need. Mary has chosen the better part’. What is it? To listen to the Lord and to remember. We can’t pray every day as if we do not have a history. Each one of us has their own”. The Pope concluded that many times our daily duties distract from what’s important and make it difficult to remember. SUMMARY OF THE POPE’S HOMILY Source: Vatican Radio “This habit of remembering our life is not very common practice. We forget things, we live in the moment and then forget the past. And each of us has a story: a story of grace, a story of sin, a story of journey, so many things … It is a good thing to pray with our history. [A prayer like] the one Paul does, where he tells a piece of his story, but in general says: ‘He has chosen me! He saved me! He was my companion on the journey … ‘. “ “When Jesus says to Martha: ‘You are worried and troubled about many things, but you only need one thing. Mary has chosen the better part. ‘What does he mean? [He means] Listening to the Lord and remembering. You cannot pray every day as if we did not have a story. Each of us has his or her own. And with this story in our heart we approach prayer, like Mary. Often we are distracted, like Martha, by work, by the day’s events, by those things that we have to do, and we forget this story”. “Remembering that we were chosen, chosen by God. Remembering our journey of covenant. Hve we respected this covenant, or not? No, we are sinners and we remember this, and we remember God’s promise to us which never disappoints, which is our hope. This is the true prayer”.

Readings & Reflections: Tuesday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time & Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7,2014

“It could be said that each mystery of the rosary, carefully meditated, sheds light on the mystery of man. ‘Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you’ (Ps 55:23). To pray the rosary is to hand over our burdens to the merciful hearts of Christ and his Mother. The rosary does indeed ‘mark the rhythm of human life,’ bringing it into harmony with the ‘rhythm’ of God’s own life, in the joyful communion of the Holy Trinity, our life’s destiny and deepest longing. Through the rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.” – Saint John Paul II read more

Following the Opening Mass for the Synod, Pope Francis prayed the Angelus along with thousands of pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square.

Pope Francis reminded them about the start of the Synod on the Family and recalledthe imagery of the vineyard to talk about God’s people, and specifically, the family. POPE FRANCIS “Taking care of the family is a way to work on the Lord’s vineyard so it can produce the fruit of the Kingdom of God”. In order for families to move forward, Pope Francis recommended that they read the Word of God. Pauline Publishing gave a Bible to every person at the square to commemorate their founding. Pope Francis called on families to use them. POPE FRANCIS “It is not for putting in a shelf, but rather for having it at hand. It is for reading it often, every day, either individually or in groups, husband and wife, parents and children; maybe at night, especially on Sundays. That way, the family can move forward with the light and the power of the Word of God!” Before leaving, Pope Francis asked the pilgrims not to forget to pray in the upcoming days for the Synod on the Family.
