Why the Rosary?

According to Father Lewis Mary of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, the Rosary is an invitation to three things:

1. The Rosary invites us to walk with Mary through the mysteries surrounding Jesus.

2. The Rosary is an invitation to see the life of Jesus anew with Mary's gaze.

3. Through the Rosary, we come to love anew with Mary's heart.

At Fatima, the Blessed Mother asked that the Rosary be prayed daily for peace. Peace begins in our own hearts, and praying the Rosary daily helps bring about that piece.
