The Rosary is one of the most treasured prayers of Catholic Christians throughout the world and throughout the centuries. It is a wonderful & profound spiritual exercise of the soul, mind, and heart, as we contemplate and reflect upon the mysteries of our salvation in Jesus Christ. The focus of this contemplative prayer is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of the God. Each mystery (scene/event) of the Rosary comes from the Holy Scriptures, and is rooted in our Christian Faith.
As we recall the central biblical scenes surrounding the life of Christ, we are drawn more deeply into the meaning of our own salvation and a greater love and appreciation for our relationship with Christ. We ask Mary, the mother of our Lord, and a model of discipleship, to pray for us and with us, as we unite ourselves to her Son. The praying of the Rosary can help us find inner peace, spiritual direction, purpose and meaning in our identities as followers of Christ, and the answer to our prayers according to the trusted will and ways of God.
The rosary is prayed on Thursday at 5:30 pm in the church prior to the 6:00 pm Mass. For a guide on how to pray the Rosary and the scriptural meditations and prayers attached to the Rosary, please click on this link.
