From the indomitable Father Z’s blog on this feast day of Our Lady of Victory, the Feast of the Holy Rosary…
The article by Joseph Pronechen is rightly called prophetic. As it so often happens when we read these old encyclicals it is as if they were directed to our very days.
Today I read it for you.
As you listen, tune your ears for he description of their times, in the post war. He could be describing our situation.
One of the things he drives hard is the importance of the family. He also has a powerful description of the Rosary, when challenges loom, as if it were David’s sling against the huge enemy Goliath.d confusing for the Church and no little trouble for me as well.
So as we come to the Feast of Our Lady of Victory, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, here is a reflection to help strengthen your resolve and joy and to inspire new personal and family practices.
