2008 Mar – April

Dear Rosary Makers,

The Incarnation (Christmas), the Passion and Death of Christ, the Resurrection (Easter) and some ordinary (time) life of Christ involved for good measure will seldom come closer together than they are poised to do so in this Church year. There is a set of circumstances whereby these events do come closer together and that is in the daily recitation of the Rosary.
Having said this, my thoughts of late once again were born of the daily Mass readings. The Gospel readings were parables related to the sowing of seed. These parables planted the seed in my mind that the Rosary, in particular your mission Rosaries, were just that; seed scattered and sown, both in the form of the beads and the prayers they generate.
