A Message from Pope John Paul II
"Many problems darken the horizon of our time. We need but think of the urgent need to work for peace, to base relationships between peoples on solid premises of justice and solidarity, and to defend human life from conception to its natural end.
And what should we say of the thousand inconsistencies of a ‘globalized’ world where the weakest, the most powerless and the poorest appear to have so little hope!
It is in this world that Christian hope must shine forth! For this reason too, the Lord wished to remain with us in the Eucharist, making his presence in meal and sacrifice, the promise of a humanity renewed by his love." ++
Our Lady of the Rosary Novena
O, dear disciple, Mary. Each bead tells a story; each decade reveals a mystery to contemplate. Nourished by your close encounter with your Son, Jesus, growing alike mind and heart. Teach us from the fruits of your encounter as we ponder the mysteries, learning how to be disciples. O, Mary exemplar disciple. Help us encounter your Son! Amen
