Power of the Rosary

How will the rosary sanctify our children? Pope John Paul II describes how this sanctification can occur in the Rosarium Virginis Mariae when he quotes Blessed Bartolo Longo: “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.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church also recognizes the importance of the Holy Rosary as an “epitome of the whole Gospel.”(Catechism 971)
