Promoting Our Holy Mother's Rosary

I am grateful for Archbishop Diarmuid of Dublin's public statement about the messages of Maria Divine Mercy. If they contradict Catholic theology, then as the good Bishop says, they are false.  I feel that my work in helping our Holy Mother promote the holy rosary on this blog was put on hold for the sake of helping Catholics not lose their souls by falling for these messages filled with incorrect doctrine, and especially since a good part of the messages cruelly denigrated Pope Francis.  Now that a statement has been made by the proper authority, I can go back to the original purpose of this blog and don't see a further need to publish anything else, anywhere, about Maria Divine Mercy.

Here is a helpful article from CNA about how to pray a family rosary.  Our Holy Mother gave us the tremendous gift of the rosary for a reason. It is an important and powerful prayer. I like calling it "praying the Gospel."

  1. Yes, I like to use the rosary as an opportunity to teach the young children and open up the mysteries for them. They love to share what they know and it is a time to answer their questions but just as important, it is a time to probe them with questions to see where their misconceptions are and to correct them. For example, a six year old niece recently told me she did not know Jesus was God. Teach them to pray, by all means but don't forget to teach them to think and enter into the mysteries at the same time.
