Are You Praying the Daily Rosary Yet? It Builds Relationships!

I received an email yesterday that was a real encouragement. Sometimes I wonder whether blogging accomplishes anything, but this showed me I can be a "pencil" for the Lord sharing the authentic Catholic faith including devotion to the holy rosary and that the sharing makes a difference. Thanks be to God for this couple and the wife who was so sweet as to send me this message. It made my day! May God reward them for their kindness! 

Dear Mary Ann,

My husband Bob and I are cradle Catholics - in our early 80's - parents of six, grandparents of ten. We are fortunate to be retired in Warrenton and St. John the Evangelist parish, especially (tho' we do attend the Latin Mass at Holy Trinity about two or three times a month). Even after 16 years of Catholic education, in my case (Mercy nuns in Pittsburgh PA), I never developed a true devotion to the Rosary. We want you to know that your blog has been the inspiration for our saying a nightly Rosary for the past year or so. Needless to say, we have seen the tangible and spiritual results from this devotion, as well as from our weekly Adoration hour at the church. "Too soon old, too late smart"!

Am sure you feel humbled and gratified by this admission, but we all believe that the Holy Spirit was ultimately responsible, right? May we all continue fighting the good fight, praying for one another, and believing that Our Saviour will deliver us from the evil in this world. We so miss Pope Benedict XVI!!

Pax et bonum to you and yours,

Dee Breinig
