The Rosary--a gift from our mother

Tomorrow is Mother's Day in the U.S. and the 90th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady at Fatima. On May 13, 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary. Our Lady asked Jacinta and Franciso Marta and Lucia dos Santos to pray the Rosary daily for peace in the world, and to do penance for conversion of sinners.

I think Our Lady gave us a great gift when she asked us to pray the Rosary for peace. I think, in every age, we worry about what goes on in the world, especially those things beyond our control. There are times when we don't feel there is anything we can do ourselves, to further peace in our time. Praying the Rosary for Peace is one thing we can do.

Pray the Rosary for peace. Pray the rosary for mothers.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
