Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
Scripture: Gospel LK 11:1-4

Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples."
He said to them, "When you pray, say:

Feast of Our Lady of the RosaryFather, hallowed be your name,
your Kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us to the final test."

Reflection

This week we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.  We hear above Jesus give us the "Our Father" and earlier in the Gospel of Luke, the Angel Gabriel appears to Mary and we begin to hear the "Hail Mary". The rosary has been a means of learning the Life of Christ, of teaching the Life of Christ and  the mysteries of our salvation.  They are the events through which our salvation; the salvation Jesus Christ has won for us, are transmitted, teaching us salvation history, so that we may grow closer to God through our recitation of "the beads".  The Rosary has been promoted by the Order of Preachers (the Dominicans) through the centuries.  Even today there are Rosary Confraternities being erected across the country.  The devotion to Our Lady has not waned, and through her we are led to Jesus. Fr.
