Our Lady, Queen of the Rosary

Today's the feast day of Our Lady, Queen of the Rosary =) 

Words from Sr Lucy, one of the 3 children who saw our Lady at Fatima:

"The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which
we live has given new efficacy in the recitation of the Holy Rosary. There
is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve
by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves.
We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of
many souls."

The rosary is a very beautiful prayer, my favourite prayer, enriched with much food for thought, etc. Enshrined in the most "dominant" prayer of the rosary is the Ave Maria, which is most beautiful in all respects. Dearest Mother of God, my Mother, ora pro nobis. 

And on October 3rd, =) it was the feast day of St. Therese, my patron saint and of course the patron of many others. Great saint she is, dear Little Flower - a name that she liked to call herself, even though in many respects, she is much much more than just a little flower. 

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesus, Mary, I love You; Save Souls!

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)
