October Month of the Rosary

Posted : Oct-12-2021

In the 2002 apostolic letter, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, which announced the Luminous Mysteries, St. John Paul II reminded all the faithful of how powerful is the rosary prayer: "With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depts of His love. Through the Rosary, the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of The Mother of the Redeemer."

To commemorate the Month of the Holy Rosary, the musical prelude beginning 10 minutes before each of the Sunday Masses in October will be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. There will also be a hymn or motet in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary during offertory or the thanksgiving after communion.
