    IN HONOR OF OUR LADY'S ASSUMPTION
    AUGUST 15, 2005

    MY ROSARY

    There is no other article
    That means so much to me'
    Or gives me so much comfort as
    My precious Rosary

    Each bead is bright and lovely as
    A flower or a gem
    And sacred is the Crucifix
    That watches over them
    My fingers touch them lightly while
    My head I gently nod
    "Our Father" and "Hail Mary
    And
    The "Glory be to God"

    I say my Rosary in church
    At home and on retreat
    I say it in my pocket when
    I walk along the street

    And when I quench the little flames
    That light the candle-wicks
    I always kneel beside the bed
    And kiss the Crucifix.

    Beloved Friends,

    Proverbs 31:28 - "Her children arise up and call her blessed."

    Please be sure to log onto my archives and re-read the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary message for August 2004.

    Through Jesus, Our Blessed Mother has always been the chief instrument of salvation. We all need to amend our lives and seek her protection through the recital of the Rosary. The Rosary is our defense and a great weapon against sin.

    Thank you for your prayers and for helping to inspire others to prayer.

    Your companion in prayer,

    Mary
