Rosary Month October

“By tradition, the Catholic Church dedicates each month of the year to certain devotion. The month of October is dedicated to the holy rosary, one of the best known of all Catholic devotions.”

St. Louis de Montfort states in his classic book, The Secret of the Rosary:

 If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory. For even if you are now on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil…sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and save your soul. If you say the Rosary devoutly every day of your life.

Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary-September, 8th.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

"Your birth, O Virgin Mother of God, proclaims joy to the whole world, for from you arose the glorious Sun of Justice, Christ our God; He freed us from the age-old curse and filled us with holiness; he destroyed death and gave us eternal life."

Feast of the Assumption of Mother Mary - August 15th

                  The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary


The significant feast day recalls the spiritual and physical departure of the mother of Jesus Christ from the earth, when both her soul and body were taken into the presence of God.

Pope Pius XII confirmed this belief about the virgin Mary as the perennial teaching of the church when he defined it formally as a dogma of Catholic faith in 1950, invoking papal infallibility to proclaim, “ that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever-Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.”
