During the month of May, Catholics honor Our Blessed Mother in a special way. Check out this special feature to learn about the rosary, how to pray it, and how we are drawn closer to Jesus through Mary in the rosary. The Rosary The rosary is probably the best known private devotion in the Catholic Church. In 1569, Pope Pius V officially approved this devotion, but the rosary’s history can be traced to much earlier times, with its beginnings probably […]
Help support the retired priests of the Diocese of Wilmington.
