Are Women Fed Up With the Pill?

An article appearing in Vogue UK says that side-effects of synthetic hormones are making more and more young women turn away from the pill and toward natural family methods that once used to be passed off as the old-fashioned “rhythm method.”

Making the Rosary a Daily Prayer

October 31

Our Lady’s Rosary

Dear Mother, I bring Thee roses Because they are so sweet, But lilies, my favorite flowers I am placing at Thy feet.

Accept with each Hail Mary A rose for Thy crown so bright, Please don't forget the lilies, The lilies so pure and white.

Let them be a bond of love And understanding rare, And send a blessing from above In answer to my prayer.

Loneliness would be unknown If more people came to Thee, With their trials and sorrows And said their Rosary.

With each Hail Mary, they would find Their load much lighter grow, And in humility, kiss the cross In peace, would onward go.

-Alice W. Sparks

Today’s Reflection:

How has my load been made lighter this past month as I have prayed the Rosary? Am I willing to make the Rosary a daily prayer? Why or why not?

Does All Saints Day Have Pagan Roots?

LEB writes: “Every year I agonize over Halloween and what to allow my children to get involved in. It’s gotten so dark and occultish! Worse, some people say that the only option we have – All Saints Day – is derived from a pagan holiday! Are these our only choices?”

Rosary Video Commentary by Christy Moore

Johnnette Benkovic and guest Thomas K. Sullivan talk about the rosary… From someone who grew up as a cradle Catholic, I found this video on the rosary simply enlightening. It taught me that the rosary is a lot more powerful than I have ever given it credit for and we should all take advantage of the prayer tool that God has given us. They shared a variety of stories that has proven the rosary to be victorious throughout time but what I found most fascinating was its origin. Apparently, the Romans mocked early Christians by forcing them to wear white robes and a crown of roses when they were put to death in the Coliseum. The Christians that had to clean up the remains, however, saw these crown of roses as something far greater- the relic of a martyr. They would use them to pray: One rose= a prayer. Knowing this story inspires me to pray the rosary more and dig deeper by reading their book, The Rosary: Your Weapon for Spiritual Warfare. Overall, you should watch this video and dig deeper as well because it is message of hope that can empower and bring us to action by sharing it and praying with it more during these trying times.

Ann “Goody” Glover: Witch or Catholic Martyr?

More than 300 years ago, a kindly Irish Catholic woman living in Boston was accused of witchcraft by a group of anti-Catholic authorities, but the facts of the story point more to a woman who was martyred for her faith, not her witchcraft!

I look to all of you, brothers and sisters, of every state of life, to you, Christian families, to you, the sick and elderly, and to you, young people: confidently take up the Rosary once again. Rediscover the Rosary in the light of Scripture, in harmony with the liturgy, and in the context of your daily lives. May this appeal of mine not go unheard!

The Whole of My Life

October 29

Into [the Rosary] one may take his whole life – joys and sorrows, men and things, everything – as he would take it to someone whose presence he finds restful, not to find out how he might act with more success, but to put everything into a proper light."

Are You Falling for the “Coat Hanger” Myth?

Commentary by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS

When I was in the process of reverting back to Catholicism 20 years ago and discovered that the abortion industry’s schtick about how “if abortion is illegal women will die from coat hanger abortions,” it was a moment of reckoning for me that I will never forget. It was the moment I realized that I was being manipulated by the very feminists in which I had placed all my trust.

Reproducing the Household of Nazareth

October 27

The family that recites the Rosary together reproduces something of the atmosphere of the household of Nazareth: its members place Jesus at the center; they share His joys and sorrows; they place their needs and their plans in His hands; they draw from Him the hope and strength to go on.

                                                            -St. Pope John Paul the Great
