The Living Rosary

 “Give me an army saying the Rosary, and I will conquer the world.”
~ Pope Blessed Pius IX

Boys praying the rosary at the funeral of Fr. Flanagan, founder of Boys' Town

On the feast of Our Lady's Annunciation, it's only fitting that we mention the Rosary. Lily and I are both members of St. Philomena's Universal Living Rosary Association, and we wanted to share this wonderful apostolate with you. Founded by Venerable Pauline Marie Jaricot, the Association has taken the St. Philomena, the Wonder Worker as its patron. It is free to join, and details are as follows:

  1. Decade: Pray one decade of the Rosary daily, and mediate on the Mystery assigned to you. Four other people around the world have been assigned the rest of the Mysteries to complete one full Rosary. 
  2. Intention: Pray your decade for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and in honor of Saint Philomena
  3. The Hour: The decade can be prayed at any time and anywhere. 
  4. Duration: The decade is to be prayed daily for the rest of your life.     
  5. Donation: a voluntary donation is asked for by the ULRA ($1.00 a month to help them meet expenses.
  6. Spread the devotion: Try to bring in new members. 
  7. Pray for One Another: Pray for deceased members, & pray for the Apostolate.

 We encourage you to take a look at their website, and join if you can! Not only do you gain graces from an extra rosary a day, but think of the 15 promises Our Lady promised to those who recite her Rosary devoutly!
