By Br. Francis Wagner, O.S.B. Just as Mary comforted and protected the child Jesus in her arms, she does so with us as the mother of all Christians. The rosary is a prayer for the children of God, uniting our lives with that of Jesus through the still, pondering heart of Mary. Praying the rosary can be a soothing fountain of peace in times of distress. This Catholic Perspectives CareNote helps us tap into the flow of God’s mercy and grace, and to mark the rhythm of human life with the rosary by meditating on the life of Christ. With Mary at our side through the rosary, the life of Christ takes on real meaning in our own lives and in that of the Church.
