October is the Month dedicated to the praying of the Rosary. Whether it is a devotion you’ve been praying for a while or discovered recently, the Rosary is a beautiful devotion and a powerful weapon in our spiritual life. And many saints have said a lot about the power of the Rosary in our spiritual life so this is a great month to get more familiar with the practice of saying the Rosary. But where do you start?
We’ve got you covered! Keep reading to learn about three Scepter titles to help you grow in your devotion to the Holy Rosary this month.
This small but powerful book has been a favorite of Scepter readers for years. And rightly so! Each mystery of the Rosary has a small mediation featuring the writing of scripture and St. Josemaria. Newly updated to include the Luminous Mysteries, Holy Rosary is the perfect companion to help you go deeper into each mystery of the Rosary and really feel like you’re standing right next to Our Lady. Its small size is also perfect for bags, purses, and keeping for on the go!
Are you more of a history buff? Well then, you’ll enjoy this walk through the Litany of Loreto, which is customarily said after the Mysteries of the Rosary. InThe Litany of Loreto: How It Came to Be, Maureen Mullins takes the reader through every title of Our Lady in The Litany of Loreto (of which there are 53, presently) and where they come from.The explanations help deepen one’s Marian piety while also learning about the history of the Church and Mary’s constant and powerful help in protecting and advancing it.
If you're interested in reading extensive literature about Our Lady, written by a Saint, then we have good news! St. John Henry Newman'sMystical Rose explores the New Testament and the works of the Church Fathers to demonstrate the strong apostolic foundation of devotion to Our Lady. Additionally, Newman explains the doctrinal principles behind the epithets assigned to Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto, including the Mystical Rose, the House of Gold, the Mirror of Justice, the Queen of Angels, the Tower of Ivory, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, the Queen of Martyrs, and more. Newman's profound insights into Our Lady will deepen your affection for the Mother of God.
As St. Josemaria says, “The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results.” (The Way, no. 558). We hope you take advantage of this Month to grow your devotion to Our Lady in the Rosary!
