Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary* (Join our Rosary Campaign!)
seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus,
“Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.”
Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
Behold, I have given you the power
‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions
and upon the full force of the enemy
and nothing will harm you.
Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
Today’s readings talk about the power of God upon this earth. In the old testament when people sinned they came under the power of Satan and Satan started controlling their life.God calls back all the Children for repentance and prayer in ten times .When we call upon God again and again..we become like small children humble and gentle. God wants to reveal his power and glory to humble and poor in spirit.Jesus gave authority to disciples and they were able to do miracles in the name of Jesus.Jesus wants poor and contrite and righteous heart and not the heart of pride and self knowledge and self righteousness. Humble heart means neutral or heart of self surrender , God’s spirit can not enter in to a heart which is already occupied with many things of this World. God can reign in and rule the human heart and through the human heart the whole World.
God’s main aim for man to get in to eternal life. If we believe Jesus and spread his kingdom in this World we automatically become the citizens of heaven.But we must be focusing more on Jesus Name than our own name.God wants to give us power to build his Kingdom and not to build our own Kingdoms and Gain. Mother Mary was the first real disciple of Jesus who kept all the power of God and used it to do his Will and not her Will. As we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Rosary, let us meditate upon those mysteries and revelations of the Rosary to Mother Mary.We remember these revelations and mysteries of the Rosary which were revealed to Mary .Mary had contrite and humble heart like children. She lived a simple life of poverty on this Earth.The Rosary is a combination of Divine revelations and lived life of Mary by doing God’s Will. Rosary becomes a Victorious prayer against the Evil because We remember the work of the Holy spirit in a person who defeated Evil by all means and sowed the Seed of Righteousness on this Earth. The second Eve defeated the Evil and his Schemes .When we recite the Rosary we reflect the virtues of the Gospel.The Rosary prayer is a prayer of deliverance and Satan and his demons bow before the first disciple of Jesus by word and deed and did his Will. Also Rosary is a prayer of protection, providence, healing and anointing because all the life of Mary contained the values of the Gospel.Rosary is the Gospel of Christ and every time we recite the Rosary the Holy trinity is present with Mother Mary.Why a particular Community focus more on Mary’s Contemplative life because it is more appealing and practical to humans like us as a model.Mary is the perfect model of Christ who was his Mother in Flesh and Mother by keeping the Word of God and mother of the entire Creation because of her faith in the Word in God. Reciting a Rosary is nothing but reading a Bible. Every Word in the Rosary of the Bible and as per the Tradition of the believers. Rosary has stopped Wars, Rosary has destroyed Communism and heresies, Rosary has bought peace among the nations so recite Rosary every day of our life.The mysteries and revelations of the Rosary Gospel revealed to the humble and simple people like Mary which can not be grasped by human Wisdom or Human Philosophy.The people who refuse to recite the Rosary refuse the Gospel of Christ and use the Gospel for the power of miracles and not to build the Church of love but of hatred and divisions.Simple and poor people who have humble heart and poor spirit read Gospel of Rosary everyday.This is their faith and belief and God will reveal the secret of the mysteries to them by granting them the Kingdom of God, love & Charity.
