October: Month of the Holy Rosary
Last edited 29th September 2011

The Catholic Church dedicates the month of October to the Holy Rosary. According to an account by fifteenth-century Dominican, Alan de la Roch, Mary appeared to St. Dominic in 1206 after he had been praying and doing severe penances because of his lack of success in combating the Albigensian heresy. Mary praised him for his valiant fight against the heretics and then gave him the Rosary as a mighty weapon, explained its uses and efficacy, and told him to preach it to others.

Advent. Take Time. Slow Down. Open Up.
Last edited 13th February 2013

Each year we have an opportunity, to dramatically change our life. But most of the time we miss it. We spend our time running around, trying to get everything done in time. When most of us forget, to get the most important thing ready...Our Heart. This is what Advent is all about. Slowing Down and Waiting. To get our Heart ready... To bring Jesus into our life... A bit more fully, than before.
