"In answer to Our Lady's request at Fatima, we are greatly devoted to the recitation of the Holy Rosary (cf. Can. 663.4). We sit at the School of Mary as she teaches us in the Rosary to contemplate the beauty of the face of Christ, to experience the depths of His love, and to draw down the specific graces of each mystery here and now upon Christ's living members, most especially our Holy Father." ~ MSSR Constitutions, XV
The Rosary forms the center of our Marian living of the Christo-centric vowed life. For the Sisters in immediate formation, the communal meditation upon the Gospel through the eyes of and in the company of Our Lady falls directly in the middle of their daily labors. It provides the Sisters with an opportunity to glance back with grateful hearts to their quiet moments of mediation and union with Christ in the Mass and to ask through Mary's hands for the graces necessary for fidelity in the duties that will occupy them until gathering again in His Presence for the evening prayer of the Church. For the Sisters in the apostolate, the Rosary may form the common thread that runs throughout the day, tying the formal Hours of the Church together, enlivening the demands of the apostolate with Our Lady's gentle presence, and keeping the communication between the Sister and her Spouse open.
