October 26: Month of the Holy Rosary-Procession & Mass in honor of Mary, Queen and Mother of Mercy
“Just as two friends, frequently in each other’s company, tend to develop similar habits, so too, by holding familiar converse with Jesus and the Blessed Virgin, by meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary and by living the same life in Holy Communion, we can become, to the extent of our lowliness, similar to them and can learn from these supreme models a life of humility, poverty, hiddenness, patience and perfection.” Bl. Bartolo Longo
October is the Month of the Holy Rosary: a procession in honor of Mary, Queen and Mother of Mercy will be held 10 a.m.-12 pm Saturday, October 26.
