Message of the day

“Blessed be that monotony of Hail Marys”

I have come to see that every Hail Mary, every greeting to Our Lady, is a new beat of a heart in love. (The Forge, 615)

``Immaculate Virgin, I know very well that I am only a miserable wretch, and all I do is increase each day the number of my sins ... '' You told me the other day that was how you spoke to Our Mother. And I was confident in advising you with assurance to pray the Holy Rosary. Blessed be that monotony of Hail Marys which purifies the monotony of your sins! (Furrow, 475)

The Rosary is said not with the lips alone, muttering Hail Marys one after the other. That is the way over-pious old men...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"I dream — and the dream has come true — of multitudes of God’s children, sanctifying themselves as ordinary citizens, sharing the ambitions and endeavours of their colleagues and friends.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
