54 Day Rosary for Marriage and the Family

by Rev. Francis Hoffman "Father Rocky"

Day 50 Reflection:

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary

So what’s the big deal about the rosary? Isn’t it a vain and repetitious prayer? Isn’t it rather simplistic? Couldn’t just anyone say it? It’s rather unoriginal, isn’t it? And yet…. Blessed John Paul the Great prayed it frequently, and he was a brilliant man. Louis Pasteur prayed it, and he too was a brilliant man. The shepherd children at Fatima also prayed it in their own, simple way. It’s a simple but profound prayer that unites the family and unites the Church. The Popes have constantly recommended it. Saints have lived by it. And growing up, our family prayed it together each evening. Those were happy days, and so full of life and grace. When folks ask how Relevant Radio is making it, I simply reply: by Our Lady’s help through the rosary.

54 Day Rosary Novena based on the titles of the Blessed Mother as found in the Litany of Loreto.


About these reflections

Pope Francis has asked us to pray for the family this year. 

Would you please join me in a 54 Day Rosary Novena praying for the upcoming Synod of the Family and the Supreme Court's deliberations on marriage so that God may be glorified and children protected?

We will start May 8.

You can pray the 54 Day Rosary Novena however you wish: alone, in a group, with your family. On a plane, in a train, in the car. You can do the regular, extra, or super-duper. The "super-duper" means praying all 20 mysteries of the rosary daily: Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful, and Luminous.

Don't worry! There's no such thing as a bad rosary, no matter how distracted you might be or how chaotic life is. If you can't pray the rosary one day, you can get back on track the next day. The point is 'the rosary is powerful.' Very powerful. My father prayed it every day and managed to survive four years in the army in the South Pacific during WWII.

Each day I will post a short reflection on the many titles of the Blessed Mother from the Litany of Our Lady (Loreto) on my Facebook page

Let's pray!
