A Holy Rosary from the biblical point of view

The Holy Rosary is one of the most important sacramentals and prayers in the Catholic Church.

Perhaps for this reason it is an object of the furious attacks or misinterpretations as well.

Some will even say that this prayer is not biblical at all...But in fact it can be seen as one of the best descriptions of Bible.

What makes the one so Bible-centered and even universal? Let's take a look...

It begins with „ The Creed” which is a common ground for the majority of Christians. Then „Our Father” goes (Matthew 6:9), and finally while praying this beautiful prayer we are reminded of Gabriel's words directed to Mary:

"And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women"(...).

If you need more arguments, please consider the Rosary's mysteries: All of them are either directly taken from our Bible or related to the biblical events.

Try to pray the Rosary as frequent as you can for it is good to read a Holy Scripture...Yet it is better to know The One through prayer.

Can you?

Life is just a meaningless distance
Between some future and the wasted past
There perhaps are love, pain and even hopes
But they're for nothing...Unless you trust.

Below you will find the three steps and one advice that can be extremely helpful in your struggle against the sin of impurity:

  • make a firm decision that you will not sin again,
  • choose a saint that can intercede in your case before God,
  • avoid the situations that may lead you to the sin and pray the Holy Rosary in the case of any temptation...

And – what is of the greatest importance - trust in Creator's mercy ( in the case of weakness remember that God is loving you always).

A bridge to happiness

The lifetime of each one of us can be spotted with many difficulties. In fact we ought to be grateful for each one of them because even a small suffering can unite us with Christ.

It seems to be very simple, yet all of us need some good instruction on this issue. The one that will show us how to transform bad moments in the most effective way – without give in to discouragement, depression and uncertainness .

Prayer of St. Brigitta of Sweden can be very helpful in case of any need – I believe that by praying it you will be able to build the safe bridge to happiness just out of your pain:

Hasten , O Lord , enlighten my darkness.
Speak to my soul .
Show me the way in which I should walk
and give me the grace to follow it.
In delay is danger, but in haste is likewise peril.
Therefore , Lord , give ear to my petition
and show me the path that is safe .
