Our Lady of the Rosary

Devotion to the Blessed Virgin frees us from worldly frivolities

St. Anscharius, Archbishop of Magdeburg, had just lost his mother when he was still a child. One night, he had a vision in which he saw a great and majestic Queen all radiant, and escorted by a multitude of ladies dressed in white and crowned with glory. In the midst of them, he recognized his mother, and ran towards her at once. But he could not reach her. “My child,” said Mary, the Queen of the procession, “you want to join your mother; but first, in imitation of My Son Jesus, flee from all vanity; leave frivolous amusements behind, and keep yourself in the gravity of a pure life. We hate all that is vain and futile; and he who puts his happiness in worldly frivolities, he cannot have part with Us.”

Anschaire profited so well from the lesson of the Blessed Virgin, that from that moment on his life was a model of piety, application, docility, self-denial; he became a living copy of the Child of Nazareth, and edified all who saw him.

Such is the conduct that devotion to Mary demands of us. Could we be careful to greet her frequently every day, and not take pains to please her by imitating her divine Son?

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
