The month of October is dedicated to The Holy Rosary. We have been asked to pray the Holy Rosary which is a vocal prayer and a meditation. It can lead to time for contemplation in the midst of busy lives. During this month set some time aside for this wonderful prayer saying one or all of the decades daily as you go through your life. During October, the Holy Fathers Universal Intention is that human trafficking, the modern form of slavery, may be eradicated.
