October is the month that the Catholic Church has dedicated to the Holy Rosary. And on 7th of this month, we celebrate the feast day of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In this post, I wanted to share a few saint quotes, favorite rosary devotions, and books that are helpful to me in celebrating this special month of Our Lady.

I hope that these resources will become a great aid to you as you put together liturgical plans in your domestic church!

The Rosary is the most powerful weapon to touch the Heart of Jesus, Our Redeemer, who loves his Mother so much.

Message of Fatima

The chief message of Our Lady of Fatima was that of amendment of life. She said, “I have come to ask men to amend their lives. Men must cease offending God, Who is already too much offended.”

She was concerned that God was being offended by sin and many souls were being lost to hell.

Devotion to the Blessed Mother through the rosary is one of the great ways to obtain the graces necessary to help strengthen us spiritually and lead men to amend our lives.

Look Father, the Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal, or above all, spiritual, in the personal lives of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of religious communities, or even in the lives of peoples and nations that cannot be resolved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayers of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves, and we will console our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls.

The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.

Padre Pio

Such a true statement! The rosary is the weapon we need in these difficult times. It is such a necessary and important part of a Catholic’s daily devotions.

But it is also really important that we are praying it with devotion and meditating on the mysteries rather than praying it out of habit or rushing through it.

There are so many really good meditation aids available, but I will link to a few of our favorites here.

“The Rosary is the most beautiful and the most rich in graces of all prayers; it is the prayer that touches most the Heart of the Mother of God…and if you wish peace to reign in your homes, recite the family Rosary.”

Pope Saint Pius X

The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life. It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings. There is no more excellent way of praying.

Pope Leo XIII
