February, the month of LOVE, the Feast of St Valentine, and the beginning of Lent.

St John Paul II said, ‘From Mary we learn to surrender to God’s will in all things.  From Mary we learn to trust even when all hope seems gone.  From Mary we learn to LOVE Christ, her Son, and the Son of God.

Mary has given us the Rosary to use as a guide for living a life centered on Christ.  As we meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, we renew Our Lady’s example of how to LOVE and to serve the Lord.  Through her ten virtues, Angelic sweetness, Ardent charity, Blind obedience, Constant mental prayer, Divine wisdom, Heroic patience, Lively faith, Profound humility, Surpassing purity, and Universal mortification; Mary shows us by her example when we grow in faith, we grow in LOVE for the Father and His Son.

Let us increase this Lenten season, as Jesus tells us to ‘LOVE your neighbor as yourself’.  Our Parish Retreat Team invites you to join us the first Saturday in February, the 6th at 3PM in the Chapel to pray the Rosary of Love using the Rosary of Glory concluding with the Litany to St Joseph.

Throughout history, the recitation of the Rosary has obtained many miracles, especially in desperate times, whether during the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 or the Soviet invasion of Austria in 1955.

Our modern times are desperate indeed.  Our Faith and our families are under attack.  Yet now more than ever, we pray, and we hope!  We hope in God’s mercy, we hope in Our Lord and in Our Lady.  We hope in the power of the Holy Rosary.

Our Lady, Saints, and Popes have told us The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life.  It is the remedy for all our evils and the root of all our blessings.  It is a ‘weapon’ for these times.  The United States Grace Force led by Father Richard Heilman, Queen of Peace Media, an organization of Catholic volunteers including priests and lay people; along with Catholic Action for faith and family led by Cardinal Raymond Burke promote praying the Rosary together as a force against the temptations of Satan. 

Our Parish Retreat team invites you to pray the Rosary with us the first of each month immediately after the daily Mass in unity with Cardinal Burke in his ‘Operation Storm Heaven’ movement.  Become a Rosary Warrior!
