[Comment: Servants and Messengers of God]  Friends of the Rosary, We celebrate today the feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael Archangels. They all three have important roles in the history of salvation. Their existence is a truth of faith. They are heavenly beings, servants, or messengers of God. They are pure, created spirits, non-corporeal; they have intellect and will, and are immortal. Saint Michael is the “Prince of the Heavenly Host,” the leader of all the good Ángels who fight against Satan and evil spirits. He is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the devil. St. Gabriel was the angel chosen by God to be the messenger of the Annunciation. St Gabriel announced to mankind the mystery of the Incarnation of the Word in the womb of Mary. His greeting to the Virgin, “Hail Mary, full of grace,” is the foundation of Hail Mary’s prayer and the Holy’s Rosary. Saint Raphael, whose name means “God has healed”, appeared to St. Joseph and to the shepherds, and strengthened Jesus during his agony in the garden of Gethsemane.

[Comment: St Michael the Archangel] Friends of the Rosary, Saint Michael the Archangel, captain of the Heavenly army, started to appear in the fifth century as the protector of Christian kingdoms. In the eight century, Saint Michael appeared in the Aralar mountains of the Kingdom of Navarre, in the north of Spain. The Archangel saved from an Evil Dragon a Christian Crusader who was doing penance tied by heavy chains. In this place, a sanctuary was then built and later six pieces of the Holy Cross were brought here by crusaders. Those pieces would be included as relics in a unique image of Saint Michael – the first one where Saint Michael holds the Cross of Jesus Christ. In the twelfth century, a Romanesque shrine was built in these mountains under the name of “Santuario de San Miguel de Aralar.” A local hero of Navarre, Francis Xavier, would expand the devotion to Saint Michael worldwide. We pray the Rosary today in this special place, while we talk to Fr. Mikel Garciandia, the chaplain in charge of San Miguel. He is sending the Rosary Network a special blessing.

[Comment: The Rosary Way] Friends of the Rosary, Today, Sunday the 27th we pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Holy Rosary in Garabandal, in northern Spain. In this sacred place where Our Lady of Mount Carmel appeared from 1961 to 1965, the faithful built “the Rosary way”, a trail that includes the 20 mysteries of the Rosary. It starts with the Joyful Mysteries and continues with the Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries. The path ends up with a Glorious Cross, installed at the same height as the Calvary in Jerusalem, at 738 meters. The Garabandal apparitions were recently featured in a documentary available on YouTube, Watch it; you will enjoy it. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Tour Podcast]
[Comment: Our Lady of Mount Carmel] Friends of the Rosary, We pray today's Holy Rosary by following the footsteps of the four visionaries of San Sebastián de Garabandal – Conchita, Mari Cruz, Mari Loli, and Jacinta – in northern Spain. The apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Michael the Archangel occurred between July 2, 1961, and November 13, 1965. The first apparition was St. Michael the Archangel, preparing the schoolgirls for the apparitions of Our Lady of Mount Carmel of Garabandal. Word of the apparitions spread quickly and many were viewed by thousands of villagers from the Cantabrian mountain region. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Tour Podcast]
[Comment: Garabandal] Friends of the Rosary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Michael the Archangel appeared from 1961 to 1965 to four young schoolgirls in a rural village of San Sebastian de Garabandal in northern Spain. The visitations numbered in the thousands drew huge crowds, and featured phenomena, much of it filmed or photographed, with thousands of witnesses. Garabandal apparitions are the continuation of Fátima. Our Lady of Mount Carmel – la Virgen del Carmen de Garabandal – asked to lead good lives, make many sacrifices, give much importance to the Eucharist, and visit frequently the Blessed Sacrament. We pray today’s Sorrowful Mysteries from Garabandal. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast of Today's Rosary] ___
[Comment: Holding Mary’s Hand] Friends of the Rosary, Padre Pio lived with the Rosary in his hands. He was always seen fingering his Rosary beads in his monastery in San Giovanni Rotondo, in Italy, where he lived and is now buried. We’ve collected seven of his key thoughts about the Rosary: • ”It was Our Lady who taught us this prayer, just as it was Jesus who taught us the Our Father.” • ”In times of darkness, holding the Rosary is like holding your Blessed Mother’s hand.” • “Pray the Rosary every day.” • ”Abandon yourself in the hands of Mary. She will take care of you.” • “She is present in all the mysteries and she participated in everything with love and pain.” • “Love our Lady and make her loved.“ • “Satan wants to destroy this prayer, but in this, he will never succeed.” [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast of Today's Rosary] ___ For following the holiness of Padre Pio based on prayer, charity, and patient suffering, always with his Rosary in hand. Padre Pio lived the Franciscan spirit of poverty with detachment from self, from possessions, and from comforts. For being open to the Holy Spirit, amend our lives and pursue holiness, following the fruits of the Luminous Mysteries that we pray today. ___
[Comment: Patient Suffering] Friends of the Rosary, Today, we commemorate the Memorial of the Italian Franciscan priest St. Pio of Petrelcina, better known as “Padre Pio”, a saint of the last century. Known for his patient suffering, fervent prayer, and miracles, he became a worldwide point of pilgrimage. During the first World War, he offered himself as a spiritual “victim” for the end to the conflict, accepting suffering as a form of prayer for peace. At that time, while praying before a cross, Padre Pio received the Stigmata – Christ's wounds – in his own flesh. These mystical but real wounds would remain with him for 50 years. He would hear confessions from dawn to dusk, was able to read souls, bi-locate, levitate, and heal by touch. About the Rosary, Padre Pio said: "Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother." Padre Pio died in 1968, at the age of 81, and was declared a saint in 2002. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast of Today's Rosary] ___ For learning on the virtue of patient suffering that Padre Pío so well exemplified. For being able to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven among our friends, relatives and anyone we can reach, for we are called to be apostles of Jesus Christ. For seeing a truly Catholic judge, naturally pro-life and pro-eternal life, seated at the Supreme Court of the United States. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York]   ___ • Video & Voice of St. Pio
[Comment: Second Wave] Friends of the Rosary, The United States marked today a somber milestone: 200,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. Moreover, doctors worry about an “apocalyptic fall” as the COVID virus spreads. Eight months later, the main question still is who conceived, financed, and released this virus? Why generate a global pandemic? Humanity has been hit badly but it hasn’t reacted as it should: by turning to Jesus Christ. A second wave is on, although we continue with our relativism, pride, and unbelief. How long until we react? Five centuries ago, the pandemic was fought with Rosaries. Why don’t we do the same now? The Immaculate Mary can easily stop this global crisis but we need to ask for Her intercession. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast of Today's Rosary] ___ For understanding the new efficacy that the Most Holy Virgin Mary gave to the Rosary in Fatima. As Sr. Lucia, the last visionary of Fatima said, "there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot be solved by the Rosary". For being able to console all of the victims of the COVID disease through the grace we receive while praying together in this community, and with the help of our salvific tool, the Most Holy Rosary. For properly reflecting on the mysteries of passion and death of Jesus Christ – that we pray today. And for receiving the infinite love of Jesus Christ and the grace of his Blessed Mother.
[Comment: Fatima The Movie]  Friends of the Rosary, The movie “Fatima” is on display on major online platforms, including YouTube. Let me share the link to free access. The movie, based on historical events, features the story of Lucía and the other two young shepherds, Francisco and Jacinta, recently declared saints. “Fatima” is an emotional, intense, faith-based drama, that we recommend. It narrates the negative reaction to the apparitions of the Virgin Mary and rightly conveys the message of Fatima. Pray the Rosary every day and do penance and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners and in reparation to the sins committed against the immaculate heart of Mary and the most sacred heart of Jesus. This message seems medieval, taken even from the Stone Age, right? Wrong, it cannot be more timely. The Holy Rosary and constant sacrifices for Jesus and Mary are exactly what the world needs today. Dismissing it is just going in the opposite direction. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] ___ For following the example of St Matthew, Apostle, and Evangelist, whose feast we celebrate today Monday, September 21st. We want to understand the call of Jesus, leaving everything and following Him, as Matthew did. For receiving the grace of the joyful mysteries, making our souls humble, charitable, poor in spirit, obedient and pious. For the health of David Calzada, who is fighting for his life.  
[Comment: Trust in the Sacred Heart of Jesus] Friends of the Rosary, I’m reaching you today from the Cerro de Los Angeles, Hill of the Angels, the geographic center of Spain, in the south of Madrid. The site hosts a fourteenth-century monastery named Our Lady of the Angels (Nuestra Señora de Los Ángeles), a shrine, and a magnificent monument dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Holy Trinity’s ways are not our earthly ways. The parable of the vineyard explained in today’s Gospel (MT 20:1-16A) shows that the landowner —meaning, the Lord — rewards and distributes His grace according to His will. That might upset us, prompting to say: “It’s just not fair.” Well, once again we’re wrong. What really works, even in our daily life, is God’s will and justice, because we poorly manage our affairs. It is better to surrender and follows Jesus Christ’s will and grace. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] ___ For always trusting in Jesus Christ and Immaculate Mary, knowing they want to give us peace on earth and save our souls for eternity. For consecrating ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, like Spain, the US and many other countries did so, despite the unbelievers’ anti-Christian agenda. Friends, if I may, I’d like to ask to join me in prayer for the health of David Calzada, a web engineer of the Rosary Network. He is fighting for his life in the ICU against the COVID. David needs to recover and to see the light of Jesus and Mary.
[Comment: Rosaries in Heaven] Friends of the Rosary, Father Dominic of Prussia was a Carthusian monk and ascetical writer, born in Poland in the fourteenth century. Deeply devoted to the Holy Rosary, he received numerous spiritual favors. According to St Louis de Montfort's narration, Dominic the Carthusian had this vision. He saw the whole heavenly court assembled and singing the Rosary in an enchanting melody. Each decade was in honor of a mystery of life, passion, or glory of Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother. The heavenly court bowed their heads at the name of Mary and genuflected at the name of Jesus, giving thanks to God. They were praying too for those on earth who practice this devotion. Beautiful crowns of flowers were held for those who say the Holy Rosary devoutly. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] ___ We pray today to continue practicing daily devotion of the Holy Rosary as Our Lady of Fatima requested. For hearing the Word of Jesus Christ, embracing it with generous heart, and bearing fruit through perseverance – as the Gospel (LK 8:4-15) teaches us today. For seeing an unequivocally pro-life and pro-eternal life judge seated on the Supreme Court. Killing unborn children is a modern holocaust and a criminal offense to the Holy Trinity. Let's pray for my friend and director of systems at IBL, David Calzada, who is at the ICU fighting against the COVID virus.
[Comment: Patience, Never Sadness] Friends of the Rosary, We cannot live as Christians without participating in the Sacrifice of the Cross. We absolutely need the Sorrowful Mysteries to meditate upon the passion and death of Jesus Christ. Immaculate Mary reminded it in her last apparitions, including the one at Garabandal in Spain, sixty years ago. The Lamb of God emptied himself and gave His life to save humanity, showing us the way to the truth on earth and the door to eternity. We need to walk embracing the virtue of patience to deal with tribulations and difficulties. We must be patient but never with a sad expression. Patient and always hopeful, inspiring non-believers. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] ___ For seeing the Holy Eucharist resumed soon because the Christian life cannot be sustained without the Sacrifice of the Mass, the community of the Church, and the Communion.  With masses only broadcasted online and no Eucharist, the enemies of the faith claim victory and advance their plan of darkness for humanity. Today we ask immaculate Mary for her grace so we can show perfect sorrow for our sins and the virtue of perfect obedience to the Divine Will.
[Comment: Meaning of Existence] Friends of the Rosary, What‘s the meaning of our existence? St Paul provided a great explanation (ROM 14:7-9): “None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.” Profound words: We live for Jesus Christ. We serve the Lord and take care of each other. Is this complicated to apply at our battleground here on earth? For sure, being Christian is not an easy job. Let’s be opened to the Holy Spirit, as the first Luminous Mystery teaches. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] 
[Comment: Why God Sacrificed His Son?] Friends of the Rosary, Why did God send his only Son to our dysfunctional world? God knew in advance that we wouldn’t recognize His Son, treating Him like a criminal. Despite so, Jesus Christ came from Heaven and went to the poor, the forgotten, and those crippled by sin. Jesus brought the light and love of God and set on earth the Catholic Church, His Mystical Body. And through the sacrament of Baptism, we became members of that Body. We've committed to imitate and serve Jesus. By modeling our lives around Jesus and His Mother, we've made our life's mission to carry the forgiving love of the Divinity to the darkest places. The Divinity just wants us to flourish and might be saved from our sins. The Holy Rosary is our instrument to save us and save others. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast]  __ For understanding that the Heavens come to us purely out of love, not to condemn us but we might be saved by imitating Jesus Christ. In speaking to Nicodemus, Jesus revealed him, “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” For receiving the grace and strength to fight hatred, violence, rejection, and death itself. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York]
[Comment: Seven Sorrows] Friends of the Rosary, Today we commemorate the Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows, and we are invited to reflect on Mary’s deep suffering in relation to Her Son. The Virgin Mary experienced seven great sorrows, from the flight into Egypt to the crucifixion and death of Jesus. The heart of the Blessed Mother was pierced by seven swords. Immaculate Mary stood at the foot of the Cross and held Jesus taken from the Cross, as dramatically reflected Michelangelo’s Pieta. In her suffering as co-redeemer, Our Lady reminds us of the tremendous evil of sin and shows us the way of true repentance. These are the seven sorrows, along with the readings: At the prophecy of Simeon: "You yourself shall be pierced with a sword - so that the thoughts of many hearts may be laid bare." (Luke 2:25-35). At the flight into Egypt: "Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt." (Mt 2:13). Having lost the Holy Child at Jerusalem for three days: "You see that your father and I have been searching for you in sorrow." (Luke 2:48). Meeting Jesus on his way to Calvary: (Luke 23:27-31; John 19:17). Standing at the foot of the Cross: "Near the cross of Jesus there stood His mother." (John 19:25). Jesus being taken from the Cross: (Psalm 130; Luke 23:50-54; John 19:31-37) At the burial of Christ: (Isaiah 53:8; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42; Mark 15:40-47) [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast] __ For the devotion to the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady while we pray today the Sorrowful Mysteries. May the tears of the Mother of God lead to our salvation. For learning from the Martyrs across history who shed their blood for Christ. This feast today—which dates back to the 12th century—is dedicated to the spiritual martyrdom of Mary, who is the Queen of Martyrs. September is traditionally dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows.
[Comment: Sign of Triumph] Friends of the Rosary, Today we celebrate the Exaltation, the Triumph of the Holy Cross — the instrument of our redemption. With this feast day, we commemorate the recovery of the True Cross, which was placed on Mt. Calvary by St. Helena, in the fourth century. When we make the Sign of the Cross, we give our entire self to Jesus Christ — mind, soul, heart, body, will, thoughts. Jesus Christ is our life, our salvation, and our resurrection. Through Him, we are saved and made free. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast]
[Comment: Serving Him] Friends of the Rosary, The Lord is merciful and forgives our sins. We just need to confess our sins, amend our lives, and do penance. After all, we are God’s children, created at His image. The Holy Trinity just wants to bring all souls to Heaven, and that’s why the Divinity gives us unlimited opportunities to repent and convert into the truth. We’ve been created to serve the Lord in this life and enjoy Him in the next one. In consequence, we must show mercy and charity and forgive others. We are far from being perfect, so better to abandon our ego and pride and be humble. This way we will dramatically improve our daily lives and take of our soul for eternity. Since all of this is easy to say but difficult to achieve, we ask the grace of Jesus and Mary through our daily Rosary. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York] [Video Podcast]
[Comment: Perseverance in Prayer] Friends of the Rosary, Through the Holy Rosary, we persevere in asking Jesus and Mary for all our needs, both spiritual and corporal. As long as we don’t stop asking and we don’t lose courage, our petition will be answered. Perseverance in prayer is critical. Only the one who keeps on asking, seeking, and knocking will receive. God is a spring of living water that flows unceasingly into the hearts who pray. The Lord is infinite goodness and generosity. We make Him happy when we ask. As John (16:24) and Matthew (7:7) wrote, ask and you will receive, seek, and you will find, knock and the door will be opened. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York]
[Comment: Heinous Attack] Friends of the Rosary, Nineteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, America suffered the worst terrorist attack in history, with almost 3,500 innocents dead. It was an attack not just on the United States, but on all of humanity. Today in the US we observe the date as the “Patriot Day”, while we turn to prayer and remember the families of those who died, those who were injured, and all the selfless first responders and brave persons who risked their lives to save others. Almost two decades later, we sadly see that evil-inspired ideologies, terrorism, and wars still persist. We seek the light and guidance of Jesus Christ, knowing that real comfort, strength and hope only comes from Heaven. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York]
[Comment: Where Is Jesus?]      Friends of the Rosary, We often say, think, and even complain that we don’t find Jesus in our daily life. Where is Jesus Christ? Jesus is in the cross, in the suffering. That’s where we find Jesus. That is where He awaits us. And where is Mary? At the foot of the Cross seeing Her Divine Son pierced and disfigured, and asking us to reflect on the Passion and the Death of the Savior. No one wants trouble and difficulty, but the reality is that we need our cross. We need challenges and struggle to redeem ourselves and enter eternity. We imitate the virtues of Jesus and Mary because deep down we know that salvation is based on modeling our existence around the Author of Life. The Holy Rosary is our instrument to achieve this goal. Always keep it with you. [Written by Mikel A | The Rosary Network, New York]
