Monthly Devotion: October
“Whenever one of the faithful who is in a state of grace says the Rosary
while meditating on the mysteries of the life and passion of Jesus Christ,
he obtains full and entire remission of all his sins.”
- Our Lady to Venerable Dominic (Carthusian Monk)
"Plant [this tree] with your own hands in the garden of your soul, making the resolution to say your Rosary every day. By saying it daily and by doing good works you will be tending your tree, watering it, hoeing the earth around it. Eventually you will see that this little see which I have given you, and which seems so very small now, will grow into a tree so great that the birds of heaven, i.e., predestinate and contemplative souls, will dwell in it and make their nests there. It shade will shelter them from the scorching heat of the sun and its great height will keep them safe from wild beasts on the ground. And best of all, they will feed upon the tree's fruit - which is none other than the adorable Jesus, to Whom be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. So be it."
- St. Louis Marie de Montfort: Secret of the Rosary
“Mary lived with her eyes fixed on Christ, treasuring his every word: “She kept all these things, pondering them in her heart” (Lk2:19; cf. 2:51). The memories of Jesus, impressed upon her heart, were always with her, leading her to reflect on the various moments of her life at her Son's side. In a way those memories were to be the ‘rosary’ which she recited uninterruptedly throughout her earthly life." - Pope St. John Paul II
