Mary of the Month (October 2012)

Benjamin Mary of the Month

October is the month of the Rosary. I have no idea why this is so, but it might be because, in the United States, October comes before election day.

This is Our Lady from the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva in Rome. The Church was built on top of a pagan temple, a good reminder that Christianity triumphs over paganism.

In this statue, Mary is holding out the Rosary and asking you to pray a Rosary a day for the rest of October…although it does not have to be all 15 decades like she is holding.
