SCY News: October 2021 Edition

October 2021 Edition




The Catholic Church dedicates the month of October to the Holy Rosary.

October includes the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7). The best way to celebrate the month is, of course, to pray the Rosary. Why bother praying the rosary, you may be asking?

  1. It allows you to meditate and reflect on key events of Jesus' ministry through Scripture.
  2. It helps us grow in holiness, asking for Mary's intercession in growing in virtue.
  3. It weakens the devil, with Mary protecting us from his evil works and temptations.
  4. This beautiful prayer helps slow down our busy lives, with Mary offering us the blessing of true peace.
  5. It is a great way to pray for others, especially those people who have asked you to pray for them and you may have forgotten...
  6. When you might not have the words to pray or don't know how to pray, the Rosary can be the words that we might not have at the time.
  7. Have you read the 15 Promises of the Rosary, given to St Dominic from the Blessed Virgin Mary?

So gather your friends, or your families, or just yourself, set aside some time and pray the Rosary. Even if you can only fit in a decade or two!

If you're needing some inspiration or struggling to stay focused, have a look at some of these Rosary resources:

"The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer. It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all blessings. There is no more excellent way of praying."  [Pope Leo XIII]
