Watch the Rosary and daily Mass on Catholic.net.
This October, 7th, feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Catholic.net invites you to start a Rosary novena for that situation that is most difficult in your life. We trust in the Lord that during the novena, the Holy Spirit will reveal God’s will for you so that you can remain in his peace through your trials, and ultimately, in his perfect timing, celebrate the victory Our Lord has reserved to all his faithful.
Respond to the grace that has been given to you. Do your part: Separate a daily moment through the next nine days to think about this problem in a very Christian way. Think of it through the eyes of Our Lady as you meditate with her on the life of Our Lord. “Consider it all joy, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (James 1: 3-4). Trust Our Lady’s intercession that the Lord will bring his victory into your life, but you are required to pray incessantly as Israel did around the walls of Jericho (Joshua 6), and God who is the same yesterday and today will deliver you too. The power available to Israel then is the same available to you now, and it is for the take, if you only belief enough to say “yes, Lord, let your will be done”, as Our Lady did (Luke 1: 38).

This will be a leap of faith for you and for us.
