Reflection on Art

In the words of Isaiah 49:15: “I will not forget you. I have held you in the palm of my hand.”
When we fold them to pray… when we touch the beads of the Rosary… when we reach out in caritas to our neighbor… let us continue or strive to use our hands for reaching out in prayer and charity.

Today’s Challenge

Today, let us pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, even though it’s not necessarily the day of the week for those mysteries. Why? Let us place our sorrows into the understanding hands of Jesus through Mary, and let us take their hands in compassion. Here’s a link to my video prayer companion of the Sorrowful Mysteries.

    The rosary has been validated since the middle ages and most likely earlier. To pray it with passion as much as possible is extremely important especially in present day.The more we pray it, the deeper the mystery is revealed. The power of the Blessed Mother Mary when saying the rosary, brings us directly to her Son whose hands of love and compassion draw us closer to His Heart. In saying the rosary we understand the life of Jesus and its historical significance.

    Whenever I leave the house, whether in the car or on foot, I have my Rosary in my hand. It is a great source of comfort to know that when I am praying the Rosary, My Mother Mary is interceding for me with Her Divine Son, Jesus! It also gives me a sense of pride to know that when someone sees me with the Rosary; I want them to know that I am not ashamed of my religion or to profess my love and devotion to Jesus, my Savior. Inwardly, I really hope that they may go home and look for their Rosary. I want to recruit more Prayer Warriors for our battle against the evil one.
