February 22, 2024, Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, Holy Rosary (Luminous Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today we celebrate the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter. The feast commemorates the unity of the Church, founded upon the Apostle and continued in an unbroken line down to the present Pope. In today’s Gospel (Mt 16:13-19), we see how Peter is appointed to lead the Church of Christ on earth. Jesus said: “YOU ARE PETER, AND UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH, AND THE GATES OF THE NETHERWORLD SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT. I WILL GIVE YOU THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. WHATEVER YOU BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN; AND WHATEVER YOU LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.” Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary! Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will! + Mikel Amigot | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • February 22, 2024, Today’s Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET https://youtu.be/pADcKtJER2c

February 21, 2024, Wednesday of the First Week of Lent, Holy Rosary (Glorious Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Yesterday, the Catholic Church honored St. Jacinta Marto (1910-1920), the youngest visionary of Our Lady of Fatima. She and her brother Francisco — whose feast is April 4 — were officially declared saints on May 13, 2017, in Fatima, Portugal. St. Francisco's feast is on April 4. Both under 12 years old, they were the youngest non-martyrs to be beatified in the history of the Church. Along with her cousin Lucia, they witnessed the apparitions of Mary. Ave Maria!

February 20, 2024, Tuesday of the First Week of Lent, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Christ Jesus didn't promise us smooth discipleship, but one filled with suffering — even much suffering.  In His three falls beneath the weight of the Cross, Jesus was tested in His faith. Freely and willingly, He emptied Himself and became obedient unto death for our sake.  Christ's Via Crucis is a time of trial for us, too. A test of faith.  Our earthly journey is filled with setbacks and even personal tragedies.  The answer is to abandon ourselves to the will of the Father, in imitation of Our Lord.  Ave Maria!

February 19, 2024, Monday of the First Week of Lent, Holy Rosary (Joyful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: In today's reading in the Gospel (Mt 25:31-46), Christ Jesus explains what is needed to inherit eternal life. "FOR I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU GAVE ME FOOD, I WAS THIRSTY AND YOU GAVE ME DRINK, A STRANGER AND YOU WELCOMED ME, NAKED AND YOU CLOTHED ME, ILL AND YOU CARED FOR ME, IN PRISON AND YOU VISITED ME." "WHATEVER YOU DID FOR ONE OF THESE LEAST BROTHERS OF MINE, YOU DID FOR ME." The Kingdom of Heaven is about our absolute love for God and the radical commitment to love our fellow human beings.

February 18, 2024, First Sunday of Lent, Holy Rosary (Glorious Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today's Gospel (Mk 1:12-15) shows Christ Jesus being tempted by Satan in the desert for forty days and consoled by angels of God. After the temptations, Jesus went into Galilee and began to preach. "THE SPIRIT DROVE JESUS OUT INTO THE DESERT, AND HE REMAINED IN THE DESERT FOR FORTY DAYS, TEMPTED BY SATAN. HE WAS AMONG WILD BEASTS, AND THE ANGELS MINISTERED TO HIM. AFTER JOHN HAD BEEN ARRESTED, JESUS CAME TO GALILEE PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL OF GOD: "THIS IS THE TIME OF FULFILLMENT. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND. REPENT, AND BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL." Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

February 17, 2024, Saturday After Ash Wednesday, Holy Rosary (Joyful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today’s Gospel tells the episode (Lk 5:27-32) of the instant conversion of the tax collector Levi — St. Matthew. Jesus passed by, gazed at Matthew, and simply said, "FOLLOW ME." "AND LEAVING EVERYTHING BEHIND, HE GOT UP AND FOLLOWED HIM." Bishop Barron asks: Grace and conversion are creations of the Lord. And, mind you, no matter how hard and accomplished we are, we don't convert. Only the Lord Jesus converts. God graciously calls us. Through prayer, we will notice this calling during this Lent.

February 16, 2024, Friday After Ash Wednesday, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Every Friday during Lent we abstain from eating meat. It's a Christian practice that helps us to discipline ourselves and dominate our superficial hunger for food and drink. And like we did on Ash Wednesday on Good Friday we will eat one full meal, or two smaller meals. as Bishop Barrons explains today. Our deepest hunger is for God. And to discover this inner desire, we have to fast. We are meant to feel how hungry we are for God, the true Living Bread.  In addition, the Fridays of Lent are a good practice for Good Friday as an opportunity to reflect on the Lord's Passion.

February 15, 2024, Thursday After Ash Wednesday, Holy Rosary (Luminous Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: "Lent is a time to look inward and share our deepest desires, worries, and weaknesses with the Lord in prayer," Pope Francis said in his Ash Wednesday homily. "The Lord is inviting us to remove the masks we so often wear and see ourselves as we truly are in the sight of God." In his homily, Pope Francis encouraged everyone to make more space for prayer in silence in Eucharistic adoration during the 40 days of Lent. He quoted advice from St. Anselm of Canterbury, an 11th-century Benedictine monk and doctor of the Church who wrote in 1078: "Escape from your everyday business for a short while, hide for a moment from your restless thoughts. Break off from your cares and troubles and be less concerned about your tasks and labors. Make a little time for God and rest a while in him." Ave Maria!Jesus, I Trust In You!

February 14, 2024, Ash Wednesday, the Beginning of Lent, Holy Rosary (Glorious Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today is the feast day of St. Valentine and most importantly, Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the penitential season of Lent — forty days of prayer, abstinence, and fasting in imitation of Our Lord in the desert. During today's Mass, the ashes are blessed and then priests or deacons impart this sacramental on the faithful as a sign of conversion, penance, fragility, and mortality. The ash on our forehead means that we are witness to our faith. It also reminds us that our time on earth is short. The ashes are made from the palms used at the previous Passion Sunday ceremonies. During Lent, we observe the central act of history, the redemption of the human race by Our Savior Jesus Christ. All the baptized are called to do some penance: • Abstinence from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays during Lent. • Fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. It means that a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

February 13, 2024, Holy Rosary (Joyful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: In today's readings, we learn from the first letter of James the Apostle about the value of trials and temptation (Jas 1:12-18). "BLESSED IS HE WHO PERSEVERES IN TEMPTATION, FOR WHEN HE HAS BEEN PROVEN HE WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE THAT HE PROMISED TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM." "EACH PERSON IS TEMPTED WHEN LURED AND ENTICED BY HIS DESIRE. THEN DESIRE CONCEIVES AND BRINGS FORTH SIN, AND WHEN SIN REACHES MATURITY IT GIVES BIRTH TO DEATH." ALL GOOD GIVING AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT ARE FROM ABOVE, COMING DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS." Friends, we are encouraged to persevere through trials, even finding joy in our difficulties, for these challenges test our faith and develop perseverance. As the holy apostle teaches, we must avoid being double-minded and unstable in our faith, especially when seeking wisdom from God. Instead, we should ask for God's grace and wisdom with unwavering faith, for He gives generously to all who ask. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

Friends of the Rosary: Yesterday, February 11, was the 32nd World Day of the Sick, a commemoration instituted by Pope St. John Paul II. The World Day of the Sick takes place each year on the memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes. On this day in 1858 in Lourdes, France, the 14-year-old peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous saw the Virgin Mary, wearing a white dress and holding a rosary. It would be the first of 18 appearances of Holy Virgin in Lourdes. In one apparition, on the feast day of the Annunciation, Mary said, “I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.” Since then, Lourdes has been a popular travel destination. Thousands of people say their medical conditions have been cured through pilgrimage, prayer, and the water flowing from a spring to which Bernadette was directed by the Blessed Virgin. Experts have verified 69 cases of miraculous healing at Lourdes since 1862. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

Friends of the Rosary: Christ Jesus is the healer of the human race, afflicted by original sin. We all, repentant sinners, know our Shepherd. At that time, during His public ministry, Jesus miraculously cured thousands of people. One of those souls was a leper abandoned by society. We see today in Mark's gospel (Mk 1:40-45) both the divine power and the divine compassion of Jesus in an act of healing. A LEPER CAME TO JESUS AND KNEELING DOWN BEGGED HIM AND SAID, “IF YOU WISH, YOU CAN MAKE ME CLEAN.” MOVED WITH PITY, HE STRETCHED OUT HIS HAND,  TOUCHED HIM, AND SAID TO HIM,  “I DO WILL IT. BE MADE CLEAN.” THE LEPROSY LEFT HIM IMMEDIATELY, AND HE WAS MADE CLEAN. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

February 10, 2024, Memorial of St. Scholastica, Holy Rosary (Joyful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: On Feb. 10, the Catholic Church remembers St. Scholastica (480-547). She was the twin sister of St. Benedict, the "father of monasticism" in Western Europe. The twins' mother died at their birth.  Under Benedict's direction, Scholastica founded a community of nuns near the great Benedictine monastery Monte Cassino. Inspired by Benedict's teaching, Scholastica devoted her life to seeking and serving God. When she passed away, Benedict saw in a vision the soul of his sister departed from her body, and in the likeness of a dove, ascend into heaven. He rejoiced with hymns and praise, giving thanks to God.  Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. Scholastica, Pray for Us! To Jesus through Mary!

February 9, 2024, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: What is the will of God? It is love, as love is His essence—to show love to others and/or will the good of others. That is the way God's goodness manifests itself to us. God is the supreme lover of our soul. His goodness means that He provides what we need for our perfection, not merely what we desire for our pleasure, which very often leads to our destruction. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote: What father does not want to be proud of his son? So long as there is love, there is necessarily a desire for the perfecting of the beloved. What parent does not want to be proud of their child? So long as there is love, there is necessarily a desire for the perfecting of the beloved. Because God loves us, like any father, He wants us to be happy. He made us for eternal joy. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

Friends of the Rosary: Jesus teaches that evil comes from within, from our hearts. “BUT WHAT COMES OUT OF THE MAN, THAT IS WHAT DEFILES HIM. FROM WITHIN THE MAN, FROM HIS HEART, COME EVIL THOUGHTS, UNCHASTITY, THEFT, MURDER, ADULTERY, GREED, MALICE, DECEIT, LICENTIOUSNESS, ENVY, BLASPHEMY, ARROGANCE, FOLLY. ALL THESE EVILS COME FROM WITHIN AND THEY DEFILE.” Our Lord summoned the crowd: “HEAR ME, ALL OF YOU, AND UNDERSTAND. NOTHING THAT ENTERS ONE FROM OUTSIDE CAN DEFILE THAT PERSON; BUT THE THINGS THAT COME OUT FROM WITHIN ARE WHAT DEFILE.” Through prayer and sacrifices, we combat the evils and dysfunctions that stem from original sin, the effects of which are evident everywhere.

February 6, 2024, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today, on the memorial day of Saint Paul Miki and Companions Martyrs, we see Jesus calling the Pharisees hypocrites because they "disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition." (Mark 7:1–13) The Pharisees and scribes were questioning Jesus because His disciples were not following the tradition of the elders but instead were eating with unwashed, uncleaned hands. He responded,"Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites,as it is written:These people honor me with their lips,but their hearts are far from me;In vain do they worship me,teaching as doctrines human precepts." The hypocrisy of the Pharisees was 1) disregard of love — not willing the good of the other — and 2) a human creation of the Eternal Word. They were playing as little Gods, following an interpreted religion for their earthly purposes. Regarding what is real love, Bishop Barron writes, "It's a leaping outside of the narrow confines of my needs and desires, and an embrace of the other’s good for the other’s sake. It is an escape from the black hole of the ego, which tends to draw everything around it into itself." Ave Maria!Jesus, I Trust In You!

Friends of the Rosary: The Catholic Church celebrates today the Memorial of St. Agatha (d. 250), a virgin and martyr who died in defense of her purity, in Catania, Sicily. After Quintanus, the governor of Sicily, tried in vain to force her to consent to sin, imprisoned for a month, and then had her breasts cut off, but that night Agatha was miraculously healed by the apostle St. Peter. When asked why she lived the servile life of a Christian, St. Agatha answered: The governor threatened her with the most dreadful tortures if she did not renounce Christ. Agatha countered: "If you threaten me with wild beasts, know that in the Name of Christ, they grow tame; if you use fire, from heaven angels will drop healing dew on me." She was then rolled over sharp stones and burning coals and finally taken to prison where she died while praying. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. Agatha, Pray for Us! To Jesus through Mary!

Friends of the Rosary: Today, February 3rd, we celebrate the memorial of St. Blaise (or Blase), a fourth-century saint and martyr who enjoys widespread veneration in the Eastern and Western Churches due to many cures attributed to him. On this day the Church gives a "Blessing of the Throats" in honor of St. Blaise, who was a physician and Bishop of Sebaste, Armenia. From the eighth century, St. Blaise has been invoked on behalf of the sick, especially those afflicted with illnesses of the throat. St. Blaise is included in the list of Today, two candles are blessed with a prayer that God will free us from illness. St. Blaise lived in a cave on Mount Argeus and was a healer of men and animals. According to legend, sick animals would come to him on their own for help, but would never disturb him at prayer. While arrested, and in prison, Blaise ministered to and healed fellow prisoners, including saving a child who was choking on a fish bone; this led to the blessing of throats on Blaise's feast day.

February 2, 2024, Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Today, forty days after the birth of Jesus, we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also popularly known as Candlemas Day — since it takes place the Procession and Blessing of Candles at Mass. Christ Child is revealed as the Messiah through the canticle and words of Simeon and the testimony of Anna the prophetess. The Presentation of the Lord concludes the celebration of the Nativity. And with the offerings of the Virgin Mother and the prophecy of Simeon, the events now point toward Easter. Overall, Jesus’ presentation signifies God made man’s entrance to His temple, presenting Himself to those who were searching for Him. It also reminds us that prayer, penance, and contemplation result in a solid interior life that brings true Christian charity. During the episode of the Presentation, we see Simeon’s prophecy of Mary’s sufferings. Pope John Paul II taught that  (, n16) Only those who pray and offer penance, like Simeon and Anna, are open to the breath of the Spirit. They knew how to recognize the Lord in the circumstances in which He manifested Himself because they possessed an ample interior vision. In addition, today, and given that consecrated men and women are to be the light in the world — imitating Jesus, the Light of the World — we celebrate the WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR CONSECRATED LIFE. Pope St. John Paul II instituted this celebration in 1997. The Church demonstrates its gratitude to all those who dedicate themselves in a privileged way to prayer and have a particular religious vocation to the contemplative life. Ave Maria!

Friends of the Rosary: Jesus is astonished by our lack of faith. As we read this week (MK 6:1-6), He cured many sick, drove out demons, and performed mighty deeds. Despite these miracles, people refuse to trust in Him. Though we, the faithful, possess an understanding of the Eternal Word, our faith remains lacking. Christ Jesus dwells among us, yet we fail to recognize Him. In the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, He abundantly bestows His grace, but we persist in disbelief and ingratitude. One day, the whole truth will be revealed to each of us. Unfortunately, for many, it will be too late. The majority will realize that they've wasted their time on Earth. It's time to fully convert and place our trust in Him. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. John Bosco, Pray for Us! To Jesus through Mary!

January 31, 2024, Memorial of St. John Bosco, Holy Rosary (Glorious Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: Every January 31, the Catholic Church honors St. John Bosco (or “Don Bosco”), a 19th-century Italian priest who reached out to young people to remedy their lack of education, opportunities, and faith. He was an enlightened educator and innovator. St. John Bosco was the founder of the Salesian Society, named in honor of St. Francis de Sales, and of the Daughters of Mary, Help of Christians. His lifework was the welfare of young boys and girls, hence his title, "Apostle of Youth." He had no formal system of education, but rather his methods centered on persuasion, authentic religiosity, and love for young people. At age nine, he had a prophetic dream in which unruly young boys were uttering words of blasphemy. Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary appeared to John in the dream, saying he would bring such youths to God through the virtues of humility and charity. Later on, this dream would help John to discern his calling as a priest. He'd become a spiritual guide and provider along with his fellow Salesian priests and brothers, giving boys religious instruction, lodging, education, and work opportunities.  This success did not come easily, as the priest struggled to find reliable accommodations and support for his ambitious apostolate. Italy’s nationalist movement made life difficult for religious orders, and its anti-clerical attitudes even led to assassination attempts against Don Bosco. However, such hostility did not stop the Salesians from expanding in Europe and beyond. They were helping 130,000 children in 250 houses by the end of Don Bosco’s life. he stated, saying it was St. John Bosco died on January 31, 1888, after conveying a message: He was canonized on Easter Sunday of 1934 and is a patron saint of young people, apprentices, and Catholic publishers and editors.

Friends of the Rosary: This week we read in the Gospel how Jesus drives out demons and unclean spirits from possessed men. Reflecting upon it, there are powerful things we can do to win the battle against evil in our lives, according to Fr. David Rider, a Catholic priest in Monroe, New York https://www.youtube.com/live/jRfz2HFmH_g?si=4mW1HOrYhu6rLodh. • Never engage in the occult or abstain from habitual mortal sin. It invites them in. • Cleanse our homes from anything that can invite demons — new age crystals, good luck charms, books about the occult. • Never leave your house without wearing some blessed object on your person: crucifix, miraculous medal, scapular. • Never wear an Italian horn or an eye against the evil eye. • Play Christian praise and worship music at all times. The devil can’t stand to be anywhere where Jesus is being praised. • Pray the Holy Rosary — each Hail Mary is a hit to Satan's head. • Go to confession frequently. One confession is more powerful than a hundred exorcisms • Cling to the Holy Eucharist and spend time in adoration. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

Friends of the Rosary: Christ Jesus demonstrated His authority during His public ministry, notably exerting power over the spiritual realm. This included causing men with unclean spirits to convulse and expel their demons, as described in St. Mark 1:21-28 and St. Mark 5:1-20. Christ gave us the power to be like Him so that we are free from sin because sin makes us like the devil. Reflecting on this, Bishop Barron wrote, "and now we have to make a decision."

HAVE YOU COME TO DESTROY US? I KNOW WHO YOU ARE—THE HOLY ONE OF GOD!" JESUS REBUKED HIM AND SAID, "QUIET! COME OUT OF HIM!" THE UNCLEAN SPIRIT CONVULSED HIM AND WITH A LOUD CRY CAME OUT OF HIM. People possessed with demons were obeying him, to the amazement and astonishment of the people in Galilee. From the first days of His public ministry, Jesus’ messianic power began to be manifested to those who saw and heard Him. Still today, the mystery of the Incarnated Word is beyond human calculation and imagination. Why don’t we accept the infinite power and love of God, as it is described in the Scriptures? Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary! Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • ⁠JANUARY 28, 2024, TODAY’S ROSARY ON YOUTUBE | DAILY BROADCAST AT 7:30 PM ET https://youtu.be/cVSFW_tSh6s

January 27, 2024, Holy Rosary (Joyful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: In today's reading (Mark 4:35–41), Jesus calms the storm that confronts our lives and threatens our peace. A VIOLENT SQUALL CAME UP AND WAVES WERE BREAKING OVER THE BOAT, SO THAT IT WAS ALREADY FILLING UP. JESUS WAS IN THE STERN, ASLEEP ON A CUSHION. THEY WOKE HIM AND SAID TO HIM, "TEACHER, DO YOU NOT CARE THAT WE ARE PERISHING?" HE WOKE UP, REBUKED THE WIND, AND SAID TO THE SEA, "QUIET! BE STILL!" THE WIND CEASED AND THERE WAS GREAT CALM. THEN HE ASKED THEM, "WHY ARE YOU TERRIFIED? DO YOU NOT YET HAVE FAITH? In this episode, the disciples stand symbolically for all of us journeying through life. When the trials and anxieties of life confront us, our first reaction is fear. But then Jesus successfully calms the waves. If we are awake in the presence of Christ within us, then we can withstand the most frightening storms. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!

January 26, 2024, Holy Rosary (Sorrowful Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: St. Paul's soul-shaking conversion has a parallel in our life. Christ came to dwell in us during our baptism. It was our first conversion, although in most of us were unaware of the gift received as we were baptized as infants. If we are lukewarm or Christians merely from habit or tradition — unconscious Christians — we must be converted to a zealously faithful life. Our repentance must include gratitude to God and be exercised with a simple heart. Another "Damascus hour" is the Eucharist moment in holy Mass. Here, too, Christ meets us. Every Mass affects a conversion, a change in us. We bring our human wants and weaknesses to the altar, and in exchange receive grace and divine Bread in Holy Communion. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. Paul, Pray for Us! To Jesus through Mary! Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • ⁠JANUARY 26, 2024, TODAY’S ROSARY ON YOUTUBE | DAILY BROADCAST AT 7:30 PM ET https://youtu.be/r20bu3A5gbw

January 25, 2024, Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Holy Rosary (Luminous Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: On January 25, the faithful celebrate the Conversion of Saint Paul, one of the great events of the early Church. This feast celebrates St. Paul's turning away from persecution of Christians to promoting Christianity. Saul was a Jew of the tribe of Benjamin, born in Tarsus, the capital of Cilicia, and a Roman citizen. He was a student of the Pharisee rabbi Gamaliel and surpassed all his peers in zeal for the Jewish law and their traditions, which he thought to be the cause of God. Saul of Tarsus became one of the most fierce enemies and persecutors of Christians. He was one of the conspirators in the martyrdom of the holy deacon Stephan. He was suddenly converted on the road to Damascus when our Lord appeared to him in His resurrected glory (Acts 9:1-9). In other words, Saul, a blasphemer and a persecutor was made an apostle, and chosen to be one of the principal instruments of God in the conversion of the world. From a fierce persecutor, he became the great Apostle of the Gentiles. He made three missionary journeys which brought him to Asia Minor and southern Europe, and made many converts. Fourteen of his Epistles are found in the New Testament. He was beheaded in Rome around 66 A.D., and his relics are in the Basilica of St. Paul. Ave Maria!Jesus, I Trust In You!St. Paul, Pray for Us! To Jesus through Mary!Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • ⁠January 25, 2024, Today’s Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET

January 24, 2024, Holy Rosary (Glorious Mysteries)

Friends of the Rosary: In today’s Gospel (Mark 4:1–20), Christ Jesus tells the parable of the sower. A man goes out to sow and throws the seed on the path, on rocky soil, on thorny soil, and finally on good soil. There are different types of soil, which apply symbolically to ourselves. God is a farmer, sowing the seed of His word and His love on the path, the rocks, and the thorns, pouring out His love on those who are least likely to respond. As Bishop Barron writes, "God’s love is irrational, extravagant, embarrassing, unreasonable, completely over the top." Ave Maria!Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary!Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • ⁠January 24, 2024, Today’s Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET
