October, The Month of the Holy Rosary

Devotion for October,
The Month of the Most Holy Rosary

In 1885, Pope Leo XIII ordered the Rosary to be recited everyday during the month of October in every Parish Church and Cathedral, throughout the world.
Those of the faithful who could not be present at this recital he exhorted to say it with their families or in private.

How should we say the Rosary?

Properly,… and slowly, with a distinct pronunciation of the prayers and mysteries.
Devoutly, not only with the lips but also with the heart. More particularly, we ought to meditate upon the Mysteries that come before us, thus, at the Joyful Mysteries, we should think of the infinite love of God to men and on His humiliation for us, thanking Him and promising our love to Him in return.
At the Sorrowful Mysteries we should have compassion on the .
Saviour suffering for us, should, from the heart, detest the sins which were the cause of His sufferings and, make the most earnest resolutions for the future.
At the Glorious Mysteries, we should remember the glory which awaits us too, if we follow Jesus and Mary. (Fr Leonard Goffiné O.Praem (1648-1719)



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
