A culture is a way of life. Culture is an integral part of one’s identity. Our culture orients us within a world that isn’t entirely our own. It gives direction to a way forward and provides a path back to our origin. A culture is more than an ideal. It is at the core of who we are, the heart of our existence.
As Catholics, we can have many different ways of living out our Faith. And for all of us, at our core, the source of our life, worth, and existence is the Holy Eucharist. Knowing this, we tend to consider the Rosary to be just one of the countless possible devotions a person could take up.
We’d like to challenge the “take it or leave it” notion that the Rosary is just another form of prayer.
We believe that in the same way that the salvation of the world comes through the Catholic Church, even for those who are outside the Church, many of the graces experienced in our Church today are the fruits of the Rosary. Our Blessed Mother generously pours out graces far and wide from one Rosary devoutly prayed. The impact of many Rosaries being prayed has the potential to change the world unlike any other personal devotion.
Pope St. John Paul II told us, “To pray the Rosary is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary, the face of Christ.”. In the Rosary, we walk with Our Lady through the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ. As we pray, we enter into the Mysteries we celebrate in the Eucharist. And when we begin to take this on as our lifestyle--our way of living--we cultivate a Rosary Culture.Now, we’re asking you to take this one step further. Instead of just relegating the Rosary to an occasional task or at best a singular moment of your day, we’re challenging you to pray with us, this new “Little Way” of the Rosary.
The Little Way of the Rosary is the intentional use of the quiet moments of your day to pray the Rosary, one Hail Mary at a time. When you begin to use the quiet moments that are scattered throughout your day, not only does it make this seemingly long prayer a lot more doable, it will bring the love of Christ and Our Blessed Mother into every aspect of your day. You’ll bring the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ into each place you visit, every situation you encounter and all who you encounter. Can you imagine the impact, not only on how you handle each of those things, but just imagine the unseen graces covering it all!
The weaving of these powerful mysteries through your ordinary day will spread grace like wildfire! Your Rosary isn’t just another prayer; this is the weapon for our times. The tool Our Lady has chosen to bring Christ’s healing to our Church. Are you ready to join us in building a Rosary Culture?
