WHY PRAY THE ROSARY?
THE ROSARY supplies a healthy appreciation of Mary’s
role in Catholic identity: the
whole-souled human response
to God’s invitation that she
embodies so beautifully.
Mary is the realization of
our vocation to “be church.”
She is what we must become.
Mary shows us how discipleship
is done. But she’s not to be
confused with a celestial
celebrity. She’s better than that.
She’s the one who assures us
that saying yes to God, fully and
completely, is possible.
Her story and her destiny
shine a light on human potential
in relationship to God. We, too,
yearn to become “full of grace.”
Silence and vocal prayer
are the rosary’s alternating
energies. If we race through it,
we miss the graced encounter
that lurks between the beads.
Pope John Paul II declared that a
“rosary personality” is a witness
against violence, injustice,
arrogance, and intolerance in
any form. In which case we
might hope more folks will take
up the practice of the rosary.
Your will . . . not mine (JOHN 6: 38).
What is God’s
will for you?
Come and See how
we answered God’s call
to share his love as
Sisters of Bon Secours.
