Random Thoughts

FAITHForsake All I Trust Him

St. Jerome (331-420 A.D.) "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Jesus"  Very True.

Rosary - was developed in the Middle Ages.  It evolved out of an ancient practice in which people who could not read Scripture recited 150 Our Fathers for the 150 Psalms.  The strings of beads were used to keep track of the prayers.  Over time, this practice merged with the Scriptural greeting to Mary ("Hail Mary, full of grace...") and with the meditations on the lives of Christ and Mary. (Our Sunday Visitor)

The rosary is a biblical prayer which focuses on Scripture
*  This is not idolatry.
*  We do NOT worship the beads.
*  It is a tool to help us stay focused on the life of Christ.

Pray the rosary and meditate on the Gospel and you will know Jesus.

True Peace is knowing Christ.
