LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

October approaches . . .

. . . and with it one of my favourite months, not for the weather – which is frequently vile – but because it is the month which contains the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary.

There will be quite a lot about the Rosary on this blog during October, not least because as an avid member of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary I am always keen to encourage others to join, and to benefit from the innumerable advantages which it offers them . . . as well, of course, as contributing to the wonderful work which it does for the world.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already read it, do let me direct your attention to this splendid post of His Hermeneuticalness, Fr Tim, about The Family Rosary. Not so easy for those of us who live alone, of course – although there’s nothing to stop several single people who live close to one another for setting up some sort of ‘virtual family’ for the Rosary, especially if their Parochus will make the Church accessible to them – but it’s still a wonderful thing, and one which I believe we should not only encourage, but also be quite open with our non-Catholic friends about doing . . . another part of the ‘Witness to the World’ which the Holy Father was so keen for us to promote.
