To Jesus through Mary

4/11/2021
The month of October is dedicated to Mother Mary. This beautiful prayer of the Rosary is a means that we too can use in order to draw closer to Jesus and Mary by meditating on the great mysteries of our salvation.
The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in thankfulness for the fortification that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful. The feast was introduced by Pope St. Pius V (1504-1572) in the year 1571 to memorialize the miraculous victory of the Christian forces in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571. The pope accredited more to the "arms" of the Rosary than the power of cannons and the valor of the defense force who fought there.
Under the guidance of the Vedruna sisters the youth and children of John Bosco Parish, Maram, (Manipur) India, organized the Family Rosary during the holy month of October. Since the parish is quite big to cover all the families during these 31 days they divided themselves into 4 groups and divided the families accordingly. The rosary was offered for the intentions of the family and the various needs of the faithful. As we were part of this devotion we could feel the faith, love and hope our people have in the power of the Virgin Mary. We end the rosary with a common prayer especially for that particular family. Each family would decorate the altar with beautiful flowers and candles. The families would offer rice, sweets, eggs and money to the group. During the common rosary, the presence of sisters was a booster to the families, children and youth in their spiritual growth. With much affection, devotion and commitment everyone was involved. The faith and trust of our people in the Mary, Queen of the Family, was very much visible in the way they put forward their joys and sorrows, success and failures, solutions and struggles. On 30th October 2021, all the youth had a pilgrimage to Marian Hill. Vedruna sisters accompanied them and shared with them their faith experience at the end of the Holy Rosary. On the last day of the month, the parish arranged the candle procession with the float of our blessed mother from the Village Local ground to the church in the evening. All the faithful participated with great devotion and prayer. During the prayerful procession, people continued imploring the help of Mary through reciting the Rosary and hymns to our Lady.
