I've been thinking of Our Lady of the Rosary very much lately.



The only way I know of getting very close to Our Lady is to pray her rosary.  So from now on I will try to pray it more often throughout the day.
.
The Rosary will be a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin and dispel heresy.

.
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means. - Promises of Our Lady to Christians who pray the Rosary
.
If by chance your conscience is burdened with sin, take your Rosary and say at least a part of it in honor of some of the mysteries of the life, passion, and glory of Jesus Christ, and you can be sure that, while you are meditating on these mysteries and honoring them, he will show his sacred wounds to his father in heaven. He will plead for you and obtain for you contrition and the forgiveness of your sins. One day our Lord said to Blessed Alan, "If only these poor wretched sinners would say my Rosary often, they would share in the merits of my passion, and I would be their Advocate and would appease the justice of God." - Secret of the Rosary

  2. I used to beat myself up all the time because I didn't have time to do a full rosary, or even a decade, especially during a very hectic workday. And working in a federal government office one must be careful in making sure that your work cube does not look like a Marian shrine..

    But I find that when things get crazy I can sit back for a moment, focus on one mystery--usually the Carrying of the Cross is pretty appropriate, and say a Hail Mary....my "mini-Rosary" unites me at that moment with our Blessed Mother, and invited Her to be with me in my work craziness...She shares my burden and all of a sudden it isn't quite so overwhelming....

    so nice to know that She is just a short prayer away..

    Sometimes i wonder if the Blessed Mother ever had days like what we have...Baby Jesus is fussing because he is cutting a tooth, the bread isn't turning out right, the in-laws will be over any second for dinner, I really need to sweep the place and tidy up and set the table for dinner, and Joseph is working late (again)...
