54 Day Rosary for Marriage and the Family

by Rev. Francis Hoffman "Father Rocky"

Day 47 Reflection:

Queen of All Saints

There’s a parish in my neighborhood called Queen of All Saints and it’s famous for its lovely Gothic style basilica and vibrant parish community. But I must admit it’s shocking and amusing to read in the newspaper headlines like “Queen of All Saints demolishes Our Lady of the Woods.” How can that be? Well, usually those headlines are on the sports page and report on the adventures of the basketball or football team. But have you ever noticed how many places and parishes are named after the Blessed Mother? In my hometown alone you will find Santa Maria del Popolo, St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Marytown, St. Mary’s Road, St. Mary of the Annunciation, and in the towns next door, St. Mary of Vernon and St. Mary’s in Lake Forest. It’s not that Catholics lack imagination. On the contrary.

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!
