DECADE A DAY
The month of October is traditionally dedicated to the recitation of the Holy Rosary. It is particularly relevant in these present days due to the challenges posed by the Corona Virus. Subsequently, the Primate of All Ireland, Archbishop Eamon Martin has issued an invitation for us to pray the Rosary during October. If for any reason you are unable to pray the full Rosary, then you can still benefit from this powerful prayer initiative by praying one “Decade a Day”. Please join with us!

Why pray a “Decade a Day”?
Praying the Rosary can be a challenge if one is not used to this prayer. However, starting-off with just a “Decade a Day” helps us become more familiar with the scriptural nature & sacred origin of this “Hail Mary” prayer, and experience Jesus & Mary’s powerful protection in our lives, as well as help integrate the spiritual power of the Rosary with our lives. Remember one of the last commands of Jesus reads: “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” John 19:26
Note: As you pray your “Decade a Day”, it is highly recommended that you mediate on the biblical scenes from sacred scripture contained in the Mysteries of the Rosary
Promises to those who pray the Rosary
There are 15 Promises to Christians Who Faithfully Pray the Rosary (by Our Blessed Lady). Here are just a selection of them:
1. To all those who shall pray my Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and great graces.
2. Those who trust themselves to me through the Rosary will not perish.
3. Whoever recites my Rosary devoutly reflecting on the mysteries, shall never be overwhelmed by misfortune. He will not experience the anger of God nor will he perish by an unprovided death. The sinner will be converted; the just will persevere in grace and merit eternal life.
4. Those truly devoted to my Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
5. What you shall ask through my Rosary you shall obtain.
6. Those who shall persevere in the recitation of my Rosary will receive some special grace.
7. To those who propagate my Rosary I promise aid in all their necessities.
8. The Rosary will be a very powerful armour against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin and dispel heresy.
