October - Month of the Holy Rosary
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary.
It was Pope Leo XIII who dedicated October as the Month of the Holy Rosary and who, in 1895, wrote an encyclical, Adiutricem, on the Rosary.
In 2002, Saint John Paul II, who called the Rosary his favorite prayer, added a new set of five reflections called the luminous mysteries.
Let us consider this beautiful prayers to draw closer to Jesus and Mary by meditating on the great mysteries of our salvation.
