Capsule for the Day
The Rosary is a powerful prayer. First, it helps us to recollect and be present to the Grace of the moment. There are millions of things competing for our attention. We are easily distracted or absent. Thus, we lose sight of God and of His work. The Rosary helps us to stay focused on God.
Second, the Rosary helps us to enter into the life of Christ, of His Mother and on the mysteries of our redemption. What a foretaste of the heaven we experience by meditating on the mystery. In the joyful mysteries, we enter into the Yes that changed the course of history and liberates us.
Third, the Rosary forms and empowers us. By repeating the prayers and meditating on the mysteries, we reflect the mysteries in our lives. We draw from the mysteries a new way of life. We are transformed by the mysteries to transform our situation. Our Lady of the Rosary, Pray for us.
