O Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary and Queen of the Angels, pray for us!
In the providence of the Church's tradition, October is dedicated to the honor both of Our Lady of the Rosary and to the Holy Angels. These powerful guardians are revealed to have been closely connected to the mystery of the Incarnation, upon which we meditate in the mysteries of the rosary. Gabriel announced to our Lady that she would be the Mother of the Redeemer. Hosts of angels proclaimed His birth on that first Christmas night. An angel warned St. Joseph in a dream to flee from Herod's murderous plan, and again indicated when the Holy Family could return from exile. Angels ministered to our Lord after His three-fold temptation in the desert, and again comforted Him after the painful Agony in the Garden. The angels announced His Resurrection and Ascension into Heaven.
