Our Lady of the Rosary

Friday is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. As John Paul II wrote regarding Jesus in his Apostolic Letter of 2002, "It is not just a question of learning what he taught but of 'learning him.' In this regard could we have any better teacher than Mary? From the divine standpoint, the Spirit is the interior teacher who leads us to the full truth of Christ. But among creatures no one knows Christ better than Mary; no one can introduce us to a profound knowledge of his mystery better than his Mother."

Anybody interested in learning more about the rosary has lots of options. A friend of this site, Moneybags, maintains a rosary page. The world headquarters of the Rosary Confraternity has a site that describes how to pray the rosary. You can enroll in the confraternity here. And if you don't have a rosary of your own, this site will show you where to get one.
