BLESSED POPE PAUL VI ON THE HOLY ROSARY.


BLESSED POPE PAUL VI ON THE HOLY ROSARY

Paul VI teaches that, through the rosary, “we try to pay our Lady the honour that is her due in accord with the excellence of her being and mission: a singular, surpassing honour, though we regret never being able to equal the honour God has shown her nor the honour deserved by the divine plan, which also depended on her. We render her an honour that she herself foretold when she prophesied that all generations would call her blessed. As Mary’s favourite prayer, the rosary unfailingly reaches her motherly heart, and wins for us abundant graces.Don’t fail to foster the praying of the rosary, said Paul VI. It is a prayer so pleasing to our Lady…. and enables the faithful to comply effectively and pleasingly with our divine Master’s command, “Ask, and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Mt 7:7).

Your rosary is like a ladder that you climb together, step by step, drawing closer to our Lady, which means finding Christ. For the most important and beautiful feature of the rosary is that, through Mary, it leads us to Christ. Christ is the goal of this long, repeated invocation to Mary. We speak to Mary in order to reach Christ. She is our Lord’s mother and brought him into the world. And she brings us to him if we are devoted to her.”

Blessed Pope Paul VI, Speech, May 10, 1964
