The Month of the Rosary

Month of the Rosary

The dedication for this month is to the Most Holy Rosary. Many people do not understand the power of praying the rosary and asking Mama Mary's assistance in asking her son for help. Even as a craddle catholic, it was a strange concept to understand at first, but now these simple prayers linked together make one powerful prayer to heaven.

As some of you know my husband and I lived many years with the cross of infertility. Those years were especially difficult emotionally. I found great support online from a group of catholic women. In October 2003, the women banded together to start a 54 day novena rosary prayer. Both my husband and I prayed every evening for everyone's intentions on the list. The peace we both felt was a gift that only God could grant. As the novena concluded, many women became pregnant, adoptions went through, and many other countless prayers were answered. All in all, 15 babies were born from that miraculous novena...including Princess. Never forget the power of Our Mother. She is a powerful intercessor for all.

How we plan to celebrate

We are discussing one mystery in depth per day using Discovery the Rosary Mysteries.

Both Big Boy and Princess are using these cards.

And Princess is making her own rosary book using these coloring pages.

And lastly, each day we are praying the rosary. The kiddos seem to do much better with praying a decade a day.
