On this month of Mary

...pray the Rosary....in Latin! Pope Benedict showed us the way. Vatican Radio has the Mysteries in Latin sound files. Scroll down to "Rosary in Latin".

Pope Benedict said of the Rosary:
In reciting the Rosary, one relives the important and significant moments in the story of salvation - we retrace the various stages of the mission of Christ.

With Mary, our hearts are oriented towards the mystery of Jesus, Christ is placed at the center of our lives, of our time, of our cities, through meditating on the holy mysteries of joy and light and sorrow and glory in his life.

May Mary help us receive the grace that comes from these mysteries, so that through us, this grace may 'irrigate' society, starting with our daily relationships, and purify it of so many negative forces, opening it up to the news of God.

The Rosary, when it is prayed authentically, not mechanically or superficially, but profoundly, brings peace and reconciliation. It contains the healing power of the most holy name of Jesus, invoked with faith and love at the center of every Hail Mary.
