My Friends,

Today’s Focus: Our Rosary of Giving
Yes, the Rosary is all about giving. I love how simple and how incredibly calming the Rosary makes me feel as I pray my way through those incredible beads. These wonderful blessed beads, have a truly special way to bring God’s Grace into my life. I can’t always explain it, but that is what I am trying to do this week in a reflection that focuses fully on the Rosary. I always have Rosary beads with me, no matter where I am, no matter what I am doing. They give me a certain peace that calms my world in a way that I love to embrace. Mary is with me, and because she is, so is Jesus.

What is Our Rosary of Giving? It’s rather simple to understand. When I pray my Rosary, I pray it for others. I used to pray it for myself, but as time has moved forward I realized that it is so much more a blessing to be praying for everyone else. I seek nothing in return. Some may think they know me and they say, “Sure you pray for the things you always talk about.” Truth be known, I only pray for this: “Lord whatever Your Will is for me is what I so desire, nothing more, nothing less.” Now, would I like those other things, sure. But in the depths of my soul I only desire that which our Lord so wants for me. I am simpler than anyone really knows.

Jesus came into my life 34 years ago and in that moment, He instilled in me many things; but that which stands out the most, were His Mother and The Rosary. I know till the day I die my mission in this life, is to share the Rosary, teach the Rosary, embrace the Rosary and bring as many others as possible to better understand the Rosary. The Rosary is my life and I love the Rosary beyond words 24/7/365. Give all of yourself when you pray, not of your possessions, but of your requests. Ask Jesus and our Lady to help and be there for all those you love as you pray your Rosary every single day.

Suggestion: Some of you might like this. Always carry extra rosaries with you and how to pray the Rosary pamphlets. That way when someone says, “Oh, I don’t have a Rosary and I don’t remember the prayers.” You just Give them a Rosary and a pamphlet to keep. Just a thought...
