Letting Our Lady guide us

Pope promotes rediscovering Rosary during Year of Faith
Here is a Catholic News Agency story about Pope Benedict XVI suggesting in his Sunday Angelus comments Oct. 7 that families and parishes rediscover the prayer of the Rosary in the Year of Faith, which begins this week.

The Rosary (the word comes from the Latin for "garland of roses") is a traditional Marian prayer that involves meditating on the episodes of Christ's life, ranging from His incarnation and birth to His death and resurrection.

Speaking on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Pope Benedict recalled how his predecessor, Blessed John Paul II, promoted the Rosary in his 2002 apostolic letter "Rosarium Virginis Mariae."

Moments earlier during Sunday Mass, the Pope had opened the 2012 Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization. The gathering is meant to advance efforts to re-evangelize the modern world. He asked for prayer for its success and for the Year of Faith, which will begin around the world Oct. 11.
