For October, Promote the Family Rosary!

October is the month of the Rosary, with the feast of our Lady of the Rosary occurring on October 7th (which also happens to be the first Sunday of the month this year). This coming month is a precious time to grown in our devotion to Mary as the Queen of the Rosary and, through the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary, to come to know and love Christ our Savior.
During the month of May, a number of individuals joined together (through this blog, and that of Stacy Trasancos, Accepting Abundance [here]) in a campaign for the Family Rosary. To promote the Family Rosary, we began by dedicating May as a month of prayer. Every day during May, we offered prayers for the renewal of the Family Rosary and in preparation for an active Family Rosary Campaign in which we will now engage during the month of October.
Now that October is nearly upon us, I will offer a little reminder of some of the active works we may perform to promote the Family Rosary.

Back to blogging!

The sign in front of my new parish
I owe an apology for the past two months of absence from the New Theological Movement blog. I had mentioned earlier [here] that I would be taking on a new parish assignment – Corpus Christi Parish in Great Falls, Montana. The first couple of months have been a time of many blessings and great joy, but the period of adjustment caused me to neglect writing for NTM blog.

However, since I am now fairly well moved in and accustomed to the new parish, I will be taking up the blog once again. In fact, as a sign of good faith, I have prepared the next three weeks worth of blog posts in advance (and have already completed the first third) – this way, we can all be sure that the blog will be going as strong as before!
