Anniversary of Lourdes Apparition
The next February 11th we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes that in her apparitions invited us to pray the Holy Rosary.
We must learn to meditate on the Ave Maria which is worth much more ‘than that which usually believe that it is.
In reciting the Holy Rosary let’s pay attention to the intercessions, the human condition demands that motivates us to to ask the Mother Mary to intercedes to God.
With this Holy prayer we take remedy to the cursing, blasphemy and the teasing of the men to sacred things.
Others laugh of the Church and Jesus’Himself, then here is the importance of the Rosary.
Thus we see that praying the Hail Mary is a repeating offer of love for our Mother outraged by men, and that on the contrary She loves us with all her heart.
Try to think of this and the next time you pray the Rosary will be ‘a less mechanical prayer that opens the heart to the love of Mary.
