Quotes from the Holy Father about The Holy Rosary


"The Holy Rosary is not a pious practice banished to the past, like prayers of other times thought of with nostalgia. Instead, the Rosary is experiencing a new Springtime."


"In the current world, so dispersive, this prayer helps to put Christ at the center, as the Virgin did, who meditated within all that was said about her Son..."


"May Mary help us to welcome within ourselves the grace emanating from these mysteries, so that through us we can 'water' society, beginning with our daily relationships, and purifying them from so many negative forces, thus opening them to the newness of God. The Rosary, when it is prayed in an authentic way, not mechanical and superficial but profoundly, brings, in fact, peace and reconciliation."

--Pope Benedict XVI, May 3, 2008, a Saturday, at the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome; he prayed the Rosary in the Basilica on the first Saturday of May that year
