OCTOBER PRAYERS - Month of the Holy Rosary

America MaryPrayer of St. Louis de Montfort

O Jesus living in Mary, come and live in Your servants,
in the spirit of Your holiness, in the fullness of Your might,
in the perfection of Your ways, in the truth of Your virtues,
in the communion of Your mysteries.
Subdue every hostile power,
the devil, the world and the flesh,
in the strength of Your Spirit,
for the glory of Your Father. Amen.

According to an account by fifteenth-century Dominican, Alan de la Roch, Mary appeared to St. Dominic in 1206 after he had been praying and doing severe penances because of his lack of success in combating the Albigensian heresy. Mary praised him for his valiant fight against the heretics and then gave him the Rosary as a mighty weapon, explained its uses and efficacy, and told him to preach it to others.
How to Pray the Rosary

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
By the resurrection of your son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself never to be silent,
Never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes a nation
With liberty and justice not just for some but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen
