“The Christian heart has always known Mary as the essence of compassion and love, to whom man can turn with particular and unreserved confidence.

Be Inspired by October’s Twin Intentions

October is both the month of the rosary and respect life month. Those two intentions are tied together intimately in my heart.  It’s not such a stretch, though, when I look at what the rosary is about: human life in its most divine and perfect form.

Daily Catholic Quote — from Saint John Paul II

“The rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at a heart a Christ-centered prayer. It has all the depth of the gospel message in its entirety.
