The Rosary in secular terms

The Rosary in secular terms

It’s interesting to read how a reporter in a secular newspaper describes the Rosary to his readers. While he doesn’t get everything exactly perfect, he does a creditable job for the space he’s got to work with. He does capture basic Catholic teaching and the motivation of millions who pray the Rosary regularly. The newspaper even includes the form and prayers of the Rosary so that anyone reading the article could pick it up. It’s a form of unintentional evangelization.

  • Wow. Wonderful article on the Rosary.
    “To be devout to you, O holy Virgin,” says St. John Damascene, “is an arm of salvation which God gives to those whom He wishes to save.”
