October is the month of the Holy Rosary, a prayer entirely devoted to asking for the intercession of Mary, the Blessed Virgin Mary of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
As Saint Josemaria said, the home is a projector of love: human love between husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters; but also divine love, like our devotion and our love for Mary, who will always lead us to her Son. We meditate on the mysteries during the Rosary because they give us insight into particular events in the life of Our Lord and His Mother.
“Certainly, the whole mystery of Christ is a mystery of light. He is the “light of the world” (jn 8:12). Yet this truth emerges in a particular way during the years of his public life, when he proclaims the Gospel of the Kingdom. (Rosarium Virginis Mariae, Para. 21)
Throughout this month, we are called to consecrate ourselves, our intentions and our prayers to Our Lady through the Holy Rosary. And here at Relevant Radio, we offer families and individuals the opportunity to participate in this consecration on a much more universal level: The Family Rosary Across America.
Something Relevant Radio has tried to impress on its listeners throughout its existence is the importance of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her intercession. We started Family Rosary Across America to bring you the joyful truth that we are not alone in our journey to draw closer to Christ. No one knows him better than his mother, so we reach out to her every night through the rosary. We have seen miraculous healings of illnesses and wounds, we have seen people return to the Church after long absences, and we have seen battles won, physical or otherwise, because of this prayer.
Every weeknight at 7 p.m. CT, Relevant Radio hosts the Rosary live for its listeners around the world. Praying these 5 decades with your Catholic brothers and sisters is a practical yet beautiful way to show your devotion to Our Lady, especially in October. .
Avoid letting the Holy Rosary become a chore, a daily commitment for you or your family. During Family Rosary across America, Relevant Radio makes the experience of praying to Our Mother Mary a fun, faithful, and fulfilling time of prayer with our Catholic community. Let the Family Rosary be your family time!
You and your family are invited to join Father Francis “Rocky” Hoffman, Margaret Kleinschmidt, the rest of the Relevant Radio team and our listeners in offering your intentions to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in October and beyond.
