PODCAST | Mary: The Shortcut to Jesus

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio challenges us individually to answer the question, “Why must I pray the Rosary?”

October is the month dedicated to Our Lady through the Holy Rosary. Our Lady herself has asked us to pray the rosary in the battle against evil and to win sinners back, ourselves included. She wants our prayers because they connect us with her Son. As Fr. Peter explains, when Mary takes our prayer and brings it to her Son, it has more effectiveness. And Mary, what does she want more than anything else? She wants to bring everlasting life to every human being. And how does her Son want this done? Through his children–his saints and witnesses.

We must be inspired to pray the rosary, meditating on the life of Christ through the mysteries, so that Mary can facilitate our growth in holiness and charity and so that we can take on this war of love and peace, drowning out evil, with an abundance of good in the world.

Note: This podcast was recorded live during an Evening of Recollection in October 2016.
