Byzantine Catholic Rosary

Posted by Site Webmaster on Saturday, March 3, 2012, In : Byzantine Catholics 
Note: This is not urging Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Christians to ‘latinize’ (adopt customs from another Church when they didn’t use them before). However, the Rosary remains a part of us who have come from a tradition where it is common: a veritable school of prayer. For those of us, then, here is a version of this practice nicely adapted to the Byzantine tradition, based on a version devised by Ukrainian Catholic priests of the Basilian Order in the 1950s.
 
In the best Eastern tradi...

The Rule of the Theotokos (Byzantine Rosary)

Posted by Site Webmaster on Saturday, March 3, 2012, In : Byzantine Catholics 

The Rule of the Theotokos is the Marian Rosary in a form which is indigenous to the Byzantine East, especially the Russian Church. Here is a brief account of its history and significance: 

It is well known that Saint Seraphim of Sarov (1759 – 1833) prayed a form of the Rosary. Saint Seraphim’s Rule of the Theotokos consisted in one hundred and fifty repetitions of the Angelic Salutation, divided into fifteen decades. He said the Our Father only once at the be...

The Divine Heart of God Rosary

Posted by Site Webmaster on Wednesday, March 30, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 

The Lord’s prayer is perhaps the most well known and oft-repeated prayer of the New Testament, and is given a central position in Christian life. Yet the importance of this prayer is often both under appreciated and misunderstood. While biblical scholars acknowledge the redactions to the Bible and the problems involved in source materials, there is great acceptance among scholars that these words were likely the actual ones spoken by Jesus and were saved by oral tradition, entering the la...

The Rosary of Beginnings

Posted by Site Webmaster on Wednesday, March 30, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 

People often pray for new beginnings, to be lightened of a burden, to be given another opportunity to learn or to grow.  Looking at the first of the two creation stories in Genesis (whose translation is “beginnings”) by itself reveals a tremendously simple and beautiful description of the creation of the earth and the beauty in it.  The words are unspeakably profound, for they are as well a description of the process of creation within each of us as we give birth to new ideas, new insigh...

Divine Healing

Posted by Site Webmaster on Wednesday, March 30, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 

Healing is a complex subject, and depending upon the meanings ascribed to the word "healing", can range from physical to spiritual refreshment and relief to the enlightenment of the entire planet. The word "healing" is related linguistically to the word "wholing", and carries with it the connotation of making something fragmented into something complete. Beginning perhaps with a physical impulse, healing (and "wholing") becomes a spiritual experience meant to reunite us with the inmost...

The Canticle of Brother Sun and Sister Moon

"Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society"

--Saint Francis

Text Box:  One of the most famous and enduring, if not endearing saints of the West was born the son of a wealthy silk merchant in the southern Italian town of Assisi.  Peter and Pica Bernadone became parents while Peter was away in France on business.  The newborn was baptized and christened with the name of John (Giovanni), but upon his father’s return from a successful business trip to France, he was renamed Francesco, or as w...

The Origin of the Rosary

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, March 25, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 


The most holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or, above all, spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations, that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, ...

Scriptural Stations of the Cross

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, March 25, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 
Most of God's people in America are starving spiritually. Although the spiritual nourishment of God's word and Holy Communion are more available than ever, we starve ourselves because we have become spiritually anorexic. We have indulged our carnal desires and lost our appetite for the things of God (see Prov 13:19; Gal 5:17). The Scriptural Stations of the Cross will feed us spiritually. Several Scripture passages are quoted for each station. We give little or no commentary but let ...

The Scriptural Rosary

Posted by Site Webmaster on Thursday, March 24, 2011, In : Our Lady's Promise 
Most of God's people in America are starving spiritually. Although the spiritual nourishment of God's word and Holy Communion are more available than ever, we starve ourselves because we have become anorexic. We have indulged our carnal desires and lost our appetite for the things of God (see Prv 13:19; Gal 5:17). The Scriptural rosary will feed us spiritually. Those who have benefited from other Scriptural rosaries and are looking for a new experience of God's word ...
