Catholic Word of the Day: FAMILY ROSARY, 05-15-13 ^ | 05-15-13 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 05/15/2013 7:53:27 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


International movement promoting recitation of the Rosary by the members of a family at home. Encouraged by the popes, the practice was singled out for special recommendation by Pope Paul VI in his Apostolic Exhortation in 1974 on devotion to the Blessed Virgin. "There is no doubt," he declared, "that after the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, the high point which family prayer can reach, the Rosary, should be considered as one of the best and most efficacious prayers in common that the Christian family is invited to recite" (Marialis Cultus, 54).
