In this month of the Rosary ....

October is the month of the Holy Rosary and here are a couple of my favorite quotes about this sublime prayer, from Through the Year with Mary:

Call [the Rosary] spiritual homeopathy if you like. Many a proud spirit has been brought down by it -- many a faddy spirit has been made patient by it. Many a queasy spirit has been made strong by it. Many a distracted spirit has become recollected by it. The weak things of this world hath God chosen to confound the strong.

~~ Archbishop William Bernard Ullathorne

Some people do not like to take the medicine that would heal them, and call it nonsense. The rosary is exactly that medicine which cures an amazing deal of nonsense.

~~  Archbishop Ullathorne
