Because of Don John of Austria's victory at Lepanto, October is dedicated as the Month of the Rosary. During this month all Catholics should focus on the Mysteries of the Rosary and the praying of it as ardently as Catholics did on that crucial day in 1571.
Praying all the mysteries daily is a very beneficial habit because one is meditating on all the mysteries: Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious. Although this may sound a little overwhelming, once you get the hang of praying all the Mysteries of the Rosary every day, they feel simply part of your routine.
After breakfast is cleaned up, you can pray the Joyful Mysteries. As soon as lunch is over, pray the Sorrowful Mysteries. And, of course, the Glorious Mysteries come after dinner! These are very great times to pray them because: who skips breakfast, lunch, or dinner!?
Praying the Rosary with increased devotion in this Month of the Rosary keeps it strong in our families throughout the rest of the year!
