With Each Hail Mary

October 31
Our Lady’s Rosary
   Dear Mother, I bring Thee roses

Because they are so sweet,
But lilies, my favorite flowers
I am placing at Thy feet.
Accept with each Hail Mary
A rose for Thy crown so bright,
Please don’t forget the lilies,
The lilies so pure and white.
Let them be a bond of love
And understanding rare,
And send a blessing from above
In answer to my prayer.
Loneliness would be unknown
If more people came to Thee,
With their trials and sorrows
And said their Rosary.
With each Hail Mary, they would find
Their load much lighter grow,
And in humility, kiss the cross
In peace, would onward go.

May this appeal of mine not go unheard!”

The Holy Family

October 27
“The family that recites the Rosary together reproduces something of the atmosphere of the household of Nazareth: its members place Jesus at the center; they share His joys and sorrows; they place their needs and their plans in His hands; they draw from Him the hope and strength to go on.”
-St. John Paul II
