Month of Celebrations: October

October is a Rosary Month. It is National Statistics Month, World Teacher’s Month and Cooperative Month among others.

Rosary is a prayer rich in history. It started at a time when heresy was leading many people into errors. Our Lady gave prayer to St. Dominic as weapon effective against heresy and evil.

Rosary has four elements. These are 1. Contemplation – the series of mysteries of salvation, 2. The Lord’s Prayer, the basis of Christian prayer, 3. The Litany, like the succession of Hail Mary’s, and 4. The Doxology, Glory Be To The Father In Conformity with an orientation common to Christian piety.
