54 Day Rosary for Marriage and the Family

by Rev. Francis Hoffman "Father Rocky"

Day 53 Reflection:

Our Lady of the Highways

There are 54 days in this “novena” but only 52 titles of the Blessed Mother in the Litany. So, I need to add two more titles. Should be easy to do, since it seems there’s no end of possibilities in this regard. “Our Lady of the Highways” has been with me since I was a child. When our family loaded up the wood-paneled station wagon each summer for the vacation, they stuck me between the back seat and the middle seat where the luggage goes. Being the smallest, that’s where I fit. With ten in the car, there wasn’t much choice. As we pulled out of the driveway my father would lead us in the Memorare, to pray for a safe trip. Then he’d add the invocation, “Our Lady of the Highways” and we’d respond “Pray for us.” Worked for us. Always got to where we were going safely. We were never in an accident as long as we prayed to her.

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!
