Month of the Holy Rosary: Reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries

by Theresa Cavicchio

The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary follow the Luminous in exact sequence. As one group ends and the other begins, the events of Holy Thursday evening descend from the heights -- the solemnity of the upper room -- to the depths at Gethsemane. Following traditional practice, we pray the Sorrowful Mysteries on Friday.

Meet the Team: Thomas K Sullivan

It's time to meet the team that makes Women of Grace the impactful apostolate that it is!
Today we're featuring Thomas K Sullivan, our Director of Operations and Producer of the EWTN's Women of Grace Television Show. We hope you enjoy learning more about Tom from his answers to the questions below. Stay tuned for regular "Meet the Team" features!
 

1 How long have you been on the Women of Grace team and how did you begin?

"I have been with Living His Life Abundantly / Women of Grace for 20 years. I was recruited by Johnnette after we had worked in ministry together for 5 years prior."

 

2 What do you love best about Women of Grace's apostolate?

"You may ask, 'Why is a man working in an apostolate for women?' My answer is best summed up by the late Archbishop Fulton J Sheen when he  said, 'To a great extent, the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.'

I have experienced the truth of this statement in my own life, in my marriage, with the women I work with, and with the thousands of women, I have met through this apostolate. Each of them trying to respond to Christ's call to holiness, and to give their own 'Fiat' or 'yes' to God.  By doing so, these women seek to not only become virtuous and valiant women, but they seek to inspire the men in their lives to do the same, and for these men to become the best Knights, Warriors, and sons of God they can be on this battlefield we call life. That is why I have dedicated much of my life to serving the Lord through this mission."

 

3 What is your favorite devotion?

"The Rosary is my favorite devotion. Specifically, the Warrior's Rosary."

 

4 Who is your favorite saint?

"St. Jose Sanchez del Rio has become one of my favorite saints."

 

5 If you could have lunch with Jesus today, what would you want to talk about?

"I would like to know more about what Jesus was doing before He created."
