We are in the last day of October, the month of the Holy Rosary. It is fitting to share to the world especially to the Catholics the reflections of the Popes about the Rosary.

     The Rosary is well suited to the honor of God and the Blessed Virgin Mary and for warding off impending dangers.  
- Pope Sixtus IV, 212th Pope

     The Rosary is the scourge of the devil. 
- Pope Adrian VI,  218th Pope

     The Rosary was instituted to appease the anger of God and to implore the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
- Pope Gregory XIII, 226th Pope

     Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.
- Blessed Pope Pius IX, 255th Pope

     The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life.  It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings.  There is no more excellent way of praying.
- Pope Leo XIII, 256th Pope

     The Rosary is the most beautiful and richest of all prayers to the Mediatrix of all grace; it is the prayer that touches most the heart of the Mother of God.  Say it each day.
- Pope Saint Pius X, 257th Pope

     Among the various supplications with which successfully appeal to the Virgin Mother of God, the Holy Rosary no doubt occupies a special and distinct place.
- Pope Pius XI, 259th Pope

     There is no surer means of calling down God's blessing upon the family than the daily recitation of the Rosary.
- Venerable Pope Pius XII, 260th Pope

     There are various practices of piety which bring about a constant union with God; the Church has wisely named the more important: mediation, devotional visit to the tabernacle, recital of the Rosary of our Lady.
- Pope John XXIII, 261st Pope

     The Rosary has accompanied me in moments of joy and in moments of difficulty.  To it, I have entrusted any number of concerns; in it I have always found comfort.
-  Blessed John Paul II, 264th Pope

So what are you waiting for?  It takes at least two hours to watch a movie, more than an hour to watch your favorite TV show, at least two hours to watch a concert, but it only takes less than an hour to pray the Rosary.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
