"All generations will call me blessed": "The Church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship." The Church rightly honors "the Blessed Virgin with special devotion. From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with the title of 'Mother of God,' to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and needs. . . . This very special devotion . . . differs essentially from the adoration which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration." The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an "epitome of the whole Gospel," express this devotion to the Virgin Mary (CCC 971).
"Among all the devotions approved by the Church none has been favored by so many miracles as the devotion of the most Holy Rosary." - Pope Pius IX
By praying the rosary, you meditate on the central mysteries of the faith, using the very words of Scripture. It only takes about 15 minutes to pray the Rosary. Begin by praying one decade every day and gradually increase to praying the whole thing. Lift up your prayers to God and conform yourself the words of these beautiful prayers.
The Rosary is prayed before 8AM Mass Monday-Thursday, on Tuesday nights in Holy Cross Chapel at 7:30PM, and before the 4PM Mass every Saturday.
