Preparing for Christmas with the Holy Rosary

Advent is a time of preparation; it’s a season to slow down and remove ourselves from the chaos and stress of December and find moments for prayerful silence and reflection.

What better way to slow down than to set aside time each evening to pray the Holy Rosary as a family? If you’re struggling to enter into the beauty of the Advent season and find yourself caught up in the whirlwind of Christmas shopping, baking, decorating, and crafts, perhaps now is the perfect time to set aside some of the less important tasks in order to be really intentional about your spiritual growth.

Advent is a journey to Christmas. Just as Mary and Joseph went on a long journey from their home of Nazareth to the city of Bethlehem, we too make a journey as we walk closer to the Lord and make more room in our lives to welcome him this Christmas.

The meditation and quiet reflection of the Rosary is a beautiful place to start. Even if your family has never prayed the Rosary together, we welcome you. As Father Rocky leads the Family Rosary Across America each evening at 7pm CT on Relevant Radio®, families of all shapes and sizes join together across the country to pray with one another. It’s a breath of fresh air, a sigh of relief after a busy day, and one of the most important things you will do with your family that day.

Christmas Novena

For the past six years, Relevant Radio has celebrated the final days of Advent by gathering together from across the nation to pray a very special Christmas Family Rosary Novena. This year, our seventh annual Christmas Family Rosary Novena will look a bit different than in years past, but we wouldn’t miss the opportunity to pray with your family in the nine days leading up to Christmas.

Beginning on Wednesday, December 16, Father Rocky will lead the Christmas Family Rosary Novena live at 7pm CT during the Family Rosary Across America. The Rosary is broadcast live over the air and via livestream video on the Relevant Radio website and app.

When we draw near to Mary as she carries our Lord within her womb, we also are drawing close to Jesus. Join us!
