Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
I say this as someone who has been up, as I write this for about 36 hours, my own choice for a vigil I have been wanting to go to for a while. I see the direct hand of Our Lady in so many ways in my life- even years and decades before I came into the Holy Church. She leads me and always has led me closer to Her Divine Son and His Sacred Heart. I am starting to understand how the Holy Rosary is not just a powerful prayer but is also a very effective instrument of Catechisis when used properly and brings us into a constant status of conversion. That is what we all need- myself included. I learned and began to feebly pray the Rosary before I was even recieved into the Church- before I even thought seriously of converting. I used to, I admit, struggle through the Rosary- I saw it as a seemingly endless group of repetious prayers. Then I discovered the great wonder of the devotion. The repetions are surface tools to help us crack open the deeper prayer of contemplation that awaits. The ultimate devotion to Our Lady always ends with us within the Heart of Jesus. In a simple way explanation the Rosary begins and ends in the greatest sign of the Mercy of God the sign of the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!
