The power of the rosary: A homily for the 28th Sunday of Ordinary Time (C)

St Padre Pio said, “take up your weapon — the rosary!”

The rosary is the slingshot David used to kill Goliath

It is the weapon given to St Dominc to fight against heresies

It is the artillery used in the Battle of Lapanto

It was Mother Teresa’s weapon of love

It is the means by which dioceses have been known to produce mountains of vocations

It is the sword worn on the left side of monks’ and nuns’ habits

It is the tool Blessed Mother told us to use in prayer every day

IT is the bible on a string

Folks, the power of the rosary is beyond the telling of it

Especially during this month of Mary, let us pray the rosary faithfully and daily
