    Friends of the Rosary: Today, we celebrate the feast day of the archangels Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, the holy archangels with important roles in the history of salvation. Michael — whose name means Who is like God? —, the Prince of the Heavenly Host, is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the Devil. St. Michael was the leader of all of the good angels, who fought against Lucifer and his followers when they rebelled against God, breaking a battle in Heaven. Pope Leo XIII, in 1899, having had a prophetic vision of the evil that would be inflicted upon the Church and the world in the 20th century, instituted a prayer asking for Saint Michael's protection to be said at the end of every Mass. Gabriel (Strength of God) announced the birth of John the Baptist to his father Zacharias, and the Incarnation of the Word in the womb of Mary. He greeted the Holy Virgin with the “Hail, full of grace.” St. Gabriel might be the angel who consoled Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Raphael is the archangel who healed Tobias' blindness. He is in charge of healing and acts of mercy. His name means “God has healed.” Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! Sts. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael Pray for Us! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • September 29, 2021, Today's Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET

    Friends of the Rosary: St. Augustine composed a poem titled "Death is Nothing". This is the text: "I have just moved to the neighboring room. I am who I am ... you are whom you are, That which we were to one another, We will always be. Call me by my name. Speak to me like you've always did. Don't use a different tone ... Don't take that look; solemn or sad. Continue to laugh at that which made us laugh together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be pronounced at home, As it always was, Without pomposity or gloom. Life is still the same, It is what it always was The string has not been cut. Why should I be away from your thoughts? Just because I am away from your sight? I am not far, just on the other side of the road. You see, everything is fine ... Wipe your tears and cry no more. If you love me ..." Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: The Divinity wants us to gain the perfect joy of Heaven. For that, His hand is leading us through challenges and joys. One day we are placed in spiritual darkness with doubts and confusion. But on the next day, God let us enjoy the light of His truth and joy. That means that one day we are consoled and on the next day, we may find life hard and sorrowful. Through all these changing conditions, we must follow the Divine Will. We are ready to experience suffering as to have joy. That's how we acquire the perfect wisdom. Remember who is in control. Everything that God wants and permits is good for our souls. Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: In yesterday's reading (Lk 16:19-31), Abraham said to the rich man who was desperate by claiming help for Heaven: ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.” Do we need to see heavenly miracles in our life to start a committed life of faith? Seeing miracles with our own eyes does not guarantee our conversion. It's a poor excuse to say that life is treating me badly when I'm doing nothing for my own salvation. The Father gave us free will so we can exercise it to either become faithful or fall into the slavery of sin. There is no middle ground. And by the way, lukewarm Christians fall into the category of sin. It's our own choice. We all know what's righteous and what's come from Satan. If we don't listen and follow the Holy Trinity — who spoke through the Scriptures and through the Communion of Saints —, our life will always be miserable. Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: The story that Jesus tells to the Pharisees (Lk 16:19-31) that we read today in the Gospel, is extremely revealing. There was a rich man who lived sumptuously, enjoying any pleasure of life and ignoring God and the poor, starving neighbors. He died and went to hell, suffering the eternal torment of fire. There, he asked Abraham for relief or at least to warn his five brothers still on earth of the pains of the netherworld. Abraham replied that those relatives should listen to Moses and the prophets. On the other side, we picture a beggar named Lazarus who due to his faith, humility, and patience is now in Heaven in a state of everlasting joy. The outcome is crystal clear: one day, we all will die and our earthly decisions will have endless consequences. Abusing our time on earth rejecting the Truth and behaving accordingly is the worst imaginable deal for everyone. We have to be faithful and fraternally charitable. The day of judgment might arrive at any time, as we learn in the second Glorious mystery today. Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: Today is the commemoration of Our Lady of Ransom. In 1218, in Spain, the Blessed Virgin appeared in separate visions to St. Peter Nolasco, St. Raymond of Penafort, and James, King of Aragon, asking them to found a religious order dedicated to freeing Christian captives from the barbarous Saracens or Moors. At the time, Saracens or Moors held a great part of Spain. The Mercedarian Order, comprised of knights, produced heroes of charity who collected alms for the ransom of Christians and often gave themselves up in exchange for Christian prisoners. Also, today is the Memorial of Our Lady of Walsingham. This feast day celebrates the shrine in Norfolk, England, which was a popular medieval pilgrimage site. On March 29, 2020, England was rededicated as the “Dowry of Mary” with Our Lady of Walsingham being the central Marian devotion. Ave Maria!

While praying before a cross, Padre Pio received the gift of the stigmata. He was the first priest ever to be blessed. He was a much sought-after spiritual advisor, confessor, and intercessor. Thousands flocked to his monastery of San Giovanni Rotundo, which became a point of pilgrimage worldwide. Padre Pio was reportedly able to bi-locate, levitate, heal by touch, and read souls. Yet despite such notoriety, he would often say, "I only want to be a poor friar who prays." He fervently prayed to the Rosary every day.

    Friends of the Rosary: Today, we celebrate the feast day of the apostle Saint Matthew, who chronicled the life and ministry of Christ in his Gospel, the first of the four Gospels. Matthew was a Jewish publican tax collector who turned into a disciple of Christ. Tax collectors on behalf of the Roman rulers of first-century Judea were hated among their own communities. Jesus first encountered Matthew near the house of Peter, in Capernaum near the Sea of Galilee. "As Jesus passed on, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, 'Follow me. And he got up and followed him," says the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus' response caused religious authorities of the Jewish community to wonder: "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" Jesus' explained to them: "I did not come to call the righteous but sinners." A witness to Christ's resurrection after death, as well as his ascension into heaven and the events of Pentecost, Matthew also described Jesus' instruction for the apostles to "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." Like 11 of the 12 apostles, St. Matthew is traditionally thought to have died as a martyr while preaching the Gospel in Egypt. Reflecting on St. Matthew's calling, Pope Benedict said in 2006 that “those who seem to be the farthest from holiness can even become a model of the acceptance of God's mercy and offer a glimpse of its marvelous effects in their own lives.” Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: “With a smile, John Paul I managed to communicate the goodness of the Lord,” said Pope Francis during the homily for the beatification of the often called “Smiling Pope.” On Sunday, September 3, in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis beatified John Paul I, born Albino Luciani, who reigned as pope for only 33 days. John Paul I gained a reputation for his humility and his dedication to teaching the faith in an understandable manner. “How beautiful is a Church with a happy, serene, and smiling face, that never closes doors, never hardens hearts, never complains or harbors resentment, does not grow angry or impatient, does not look dour or suffer nostalgia for the past. Let us pray to him, our father and our brother, and ask him to obtain for us ‘the smile of the soul,” said Pope Francis. As a cardinal, Luciani published a collection of “open letters” to historic figures, saints, famous writers, and fictional characters. The book, Illustrissimi, included letters to Jesus, King David, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Christopher Marlowe, as well as Pinocchio and Figaro, the barber of Seville. He made history in 1978 when he became the first pope to take a double name, after his two immediate predecessors, Popes John XXIII and Paul VI. His episcopal motto was simply: “Humilitas.” Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You!

    Friends of the Rosary: Can we serve Jesus Christ and the material world we are in at the same time? In today's Sunday's reading (Lk 16:1-13), Our Lord explained to his disciples through a parable, “No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon." In the silence of our hearts, we might have set our goals in life. When we haven't, we behave like the waves of the sea, that go everywhere. We act then erratically, becoming unhappy. Most people do not choose God. They decide to enjoy life, concentrating on money, power, honors, or pleasures. Only a minority rejects turning their back on God, pursuing a life of virtues. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them. Our free will poses the fundamental question: do we serve Jesus and Mary or do we serve everything else? Ave Maria!

And when we pronounce her name we affirm her power, implore her aid and place ourselves under her protection. Pope Benedict XVI's said that we are invited to become a trusting child of Mary as the Son of God did. Saint Bernard encouraged, "In danger, in distress, in doubt, think of Mary, call upon Mary. May her name never be far from your lips, or far from your heart … If you follow her, you will not stray; if you pray to her, you will not despair; if you turn your thoughts to her, you will not err.

    Friends of the Rosary: United Kingdom's Queen Elizabeth II was a global leader for whom faith was both personal and professional — and that's remarkable in a world dominated by faithless leaders or lukewarm Christians. We briefly reflect on Elizabeth II's religious legacy. As head of the royal family, she helped to lead the protestant Church of England and held the title of “Defender of the Faith”. The senior Bishop in the Church of England, the Rev. Justin Welby, noted that Elizabeth's trust in God was visible throughout her 70 years in power. “She lived out her faith every day of her life. Her trust in God and profound love for God was foundational in how she led her life — hour by hour, day by day,” the Rev. Welby said in a statement. During the pandemic, the Queen spoke of the light that no darkness can overcome. She reminded us that we are people of hope who care for one another. “In The Late Queen's life, we saw what it means to receive the gift of life we have been given by God and – through patient, humble, selfless service – share it as a gift to others.” “She allowed her life of service to be an instrument of God's peace among us.” May she rests in peace.

    Friends of the Rosary: Catholic leaders worldwide mourn today the death of the Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms, Elizabeth II at the age of 96 on Thursday, on the feast day of the birth of the Queen of the Universe, the Most Holy Virgin Mary. Elizabeth II was the longest-reigning monarch in British history and the head of the Anglican Church of England, which separated from the Roman Catholic Church in 1534. The hope of many was that she converted to Catholicism before her death. Maybe on the Final Judgement Day, she did it. Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the archbishop of Westminster and president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, said in a statement, that the Christian faith marked every day of the life and activity of Queen Elizabeth. Cardinal Nichols went on to cite her Christmas message from 2000. “To many of us, our beliefs are of fundamental importance. For me, the teachings of Christ and my own personal accountability before God provide a framework in which I try to lead my life. I, like so many of you, have drawn great comfort in difficult times from Christ's words and example.” Bishop Patrick McKinney of Nottingham also expressed admiration for the queen's faith. “We also want to pay our respects to the Queen as a woman of faith, as a Christian, whose faith always inspired and shaped the way she lived,” he said in a statement. Bishop Hugh Gilbert, president of the Catholic bishops' conference in Scotland, said, “Her determination to remain active to the end of her long life has been an example of Christian leadership.” As Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of San Francisco said, “May she rest in peace.” Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: Today, September 8, nine months after the December 8 celebration of the Immaculate Conception, is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Savior of the world's mother. St. Joachim was deeply grieved, along with his wife St. Anne, by their childlessness. They began to devote themselves to prayer and fasting, wondering whether their inability to conceive a child might signify God's displeasure with them. It turned out that the couple was to be blessed even more abundantly than Abraham and Sarah. An angel revealed to Anne that all generations would honor their future child: "The Lord has heard your prayer, and you shall conceive, and shall bring forth, and your seed shall be spoken of in all the world." Mary's parents, along with the temple priests, subsequently decided that she would be offered to God as a consecrated Virgin for the rest of her life, and enter a chaste marriage with the carpenter Joseph. Saint Augustine described the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary as an event of cosmic and historic significance, and an appropriate prelude to the birth of Jesus Christ. "She is the flower of the field from whom bloomed the precious lily of the valley," he wrote. The Blessed Virgin occupies a unique place in the history of salvation, and she has the highest mission ever commended to any creature. We rejoice that the Mother of God is our Mother, too. We call upon the Blessed Virgin as "Cause of our joy", one of the most beautiful titles in her litany. Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: At this time of new evangelization, the Enemy is taking advantage and confusing many prelates. A friend is sending us a horrific video of yoga practitioners inside a Catholic Church in Belgium. Every Wednesday in July and August, at St. James Church in Antwerp in Belgium, yoga classes were offered for its parishioners. The pews of the central nave near the altar were removed so the participants have an area for their "sacred space yoga". The parish priest and the local bishop were supporting the blasphemy. The infiltration of Hinduism and other anti-Christian ideas into Catholic spirituality is a fact. Maybe the prelates don't know of the dangers of Yoga (rooted in the Hindu religion, where positions are salutations to the many Hindu Gods) and that Catholics should not practice it at risk of offending the First Commandment.

We reflect upon it when we pray the Sorrowful Mysteries every Tuesday and Friday. Doctors of the Church taught us that suffering is not only a need for our purification and salvation but also a gift in the Christian life. Jesus Christ redeemed us through his Passion and Death on the Cross. In a mysterious way of suffering, He united us to Him. We discovered that suffering can be redemptive.

Mother Teresa set up homes for AIDS sufferers, prostitutes, battered women, and orphanages for poor children. She often said that the poorest of the poor were those who had no one to care for them and no one who knew them. She was a fierce defender of the unborn saying: "If you hear of some woman who does not want to keep her child and wants to have an abortion, try to persuade her to bring him to me. I will love that child, seeing in him the sign of God's love." Mother Teresa died on September 5, 1997. She was beatified only six years later, on October 19, 2003. Mother Teresa once said, "A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace." She also said, "Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness." Mother Teresa of Calcutta was entrusted with the mission of proclaiming God's thirsting love for humanity, especially for the poorest of the poor. "God still loves the world and He sends you and me to be His love and His compassion to the poor." She was a soul filled with the light of Christ, on fire with love for Him and burning with the desire of proclaiming the love for mankind. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You!

    Friends of the Rosary: In today's Sunday reading (Lk 14:25-33), Jesus Christ encourages us to put Him in the center of our life, radically trusting in Him, beyond anyone else, including our relatives and our own life. He formulates this in a shocking way. Does today's reading mean that we stop loving our father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters? On the contrary, it means that we need to love anyone — willing the good of the other — in the framework of the Divinity. At the Rosary Network, we say at the beginning of the prayer that "we live for God". My wife liked highlighting this sentence. Did she love me? Absolutely, and her love was more intense, more everlasting, that a simple humanly rooted love. By becoming disciples of Jesus Christ, we try to put into action the love of God in others. Ave Maria!

    Friends of the Rosary: Humility is the foundational virtue. The fruit of the first Joyful Mystery of the Incarnation is what defines the saints and the holy people of God. Jesus Christ, in Matthew 23:12, told us: "Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted." To be great, we need to serve, as the Son of God did. He came to serve not to be served... And He was God! There is a great passage in the Old Testament that we read last Sunday in the book of Sirach (Sir 3:17-18, 20, 28-29): "My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.

Jesus Christ said: "Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough." When asked about specifics, Jesus Christ answered this way. In other passages, the Son of God explained that the mercy of the Father is infinite. In John 14:2, He says: "In My Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into my presence, so that you also may be where I am." The message of Christ is clear: "Do not let your hearts be troubled.
