Pontiff Urges Youth to Pray Daily Rosary

VATICAN CITY, OCT. 6, 2010 ( Benedict XVI is noting Thursday's feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, encouraging the faithful to appreciate this traditional prayer.
The Pope spoke of the rosary today at the conclusion of the general audience, when he offered his customary greeting to youth, the sick and newlyweds.
"October is the month of the holy rosary, which invites us to appreciate this prayer so dear to the tradition of the Christian people," he said.
The Holy Father went on to invite youth "to make the rosary your daily prayer." He encouraged those suffering from illness to use the rosary "to grow in confident abandonment in God's hands."
Finally, he exhorted newlyweds "to make of the rosary a constant contemplation of the mysteries of Christ."

This important feast was originally established by Pope St. Pius V.  It purpose was to thank God for the victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto in 1571.  The victory was attributed to the praying of the Rosary on the day of the battle in Rome.  The feast would later be celebrated throughout the entire Church.  In 1917 at Fatima, Our Blessed Mother, identified herself as the Lady of the Rosary.  When Pope John Paul II declared 2002 as the year of the Rosary, he said praying the Rosary brings abundant grace to the faithful and it is a vital part of Christian life as a devotion to Mary.  It is with this in mind, that we at and Lewis & Company offer you our Shrine to Mary site on the web.  We do this to honor the special place Our Blessed Mother has played in our lives, the Christian Community and the world at large.  Together, like the Rosary, we are all linked through prayer, being one in the Body of Christ.
