"It is October, the month of the Holy Rosary. And it is harvest time, when farms and gardens produce their abundant fruit. For those two reasons, among others, it seems especially appropriate that we focus once again on the beauty and power of the Holy Rosary. And there's no better place to turn for our reflection than St. John Paul's beautiful Apostolic Letter, 'The Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.'
"John Paul says that the Rosary is destined to bring forth a 'harvest of holiness' and I can think of three ways that happens."
In a recent commentary, Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, of the Diocese of Providence
(RI), reflected on ways that praying the Rosary can bring a harvest of holiness, including its leading us to Christ and its helping us to "integrate the experiences of life into a vision of faith."
