"Pope St. Pius V established this feast in 1573. The purpose was to thank God for the victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto—a victory attributed to the praying of the rosary. Clement XI extended the feast to the universal Church in 1716. " Read More»
"There is no surer means of calling down God’s blessings upon the family . . . than the daily recitation of the Rosary" ~ Pope Pius XII (126).
"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 (127).
"... although the repeated Hail Mary is addressed directly to Mary, it is to Jesus that the act of love is ultimately directed, with her and through her. The repetition is nourished by the desire to be conformed ever more completely to Christ, the true programme of the Christian life. Saint Paul expressed this project with words of fire: “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Phil 1:21). And again: “It is no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me” (Gal 2:20). The Rosary helps us to be conformed ever more closely to Christ until we attain true holiness." ~ From Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, John Paull II
