6. National Rosary Prayer 6. National Rosary Prayer Presentation Transcript

  • The National Rosary for the Evangelization of Nations “that all the nations come to theknowledge, love and veneration of Thee, the true God.”
  • The origins of the National Rosary: The Holy Spirit is the principal agent of Evangelization------ “no Holy spirit, no evangelization.” Any prayer for evangelization that omits the Holy Spirit is incomplete. Hence it is essential to invoke the Holy Spirit.
  •  The Holy Spirit is the prime agent of evangelization. Therefore the Church ceaselessly cries out, “Come, Holy Spirit! Fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love!” -----Catechism of the Catholic Church “My immaculate Heart is the golden doorway through which the Holy Spirit passes to reach you. And so I invite you to repeat often: ‘Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well- beloved Spouse.’ Let it become your habitual prayer.”---Our Lady’s words to Fr. Stefano Gobbi. Invocation of the Holy Spirit: Principal agent of evangelization. “Come, Holy Spirit! Fill the hearts of the (national) people and enkindle in them the fire of your love! Come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well-beloved Spouse.”
  •  Mary is the Star of the new evangelization. Hence it is necessary to pray to Our Lady. --------“To Jesus, through Mary.” In his encyclicle Redemptoris Mater, Pope John Paul II said: Thus there is a mediation: Mary places herself between her Son and mankind in the reality of their wants, needs and sufferings. She puts herself "in the middle", that is to say she acts as a mediatrix not as an outsider, but in her position as mother. She knows that as such she can present to her Son the needs of mankind, and in fact, she "has the right" to do so. Her mediation is thus in the nature of intercession: Mary "intercedes" for mankind.
  •  Pope John Paul II : “ I ask her to “visit” each and every diocese, parish, ecclesial community and family in America. Christians, like John, welcomes the Mother of Christ into his home. I ask You today to present them to Jesus, the fruit of thy womb. Look upon them continually with mercy, and through your intercession with the Divine Redeemer, heal them of their sufferings, deliver them from all evil and fill them with your love.” Angelus Address by Pope John Paul II, Feb. 11/1996, Caracas, Venezuela. from L’Osservatore Romano . Prayer to Our Lady of (Nation) Star of the new evangelization Hail Holy Queen, Mother of (nation), come and present the (national) people to Jesus, the fruit of thy womb. Look upon them continually with mercy and through your intercession with the divine Redeemer, heal them of their sufferings, deliver them from all evil, and fill them with your love. ----adapted from the Angelus Address.

  •  In any large multicultural gatherings of Catholics from different countries and ethnic origins, each one can replace the words “Nation” and “National” with the names of his own country and his own people (eg. Russia and Russian, India and Indian, China and Chinese, Asia and Asian, Africa and African). This National Rosary prayer can then become the Russian Rosary, the Indian Rosary, the Chinese Rosary, the Asian Rosary, the African Rosary, ie, the Rosary for the evangelization of every nation and every continent of the world. This multicultural Cenacle then brings together a chorus of prayer for the evangelization of nations of the world. “Let yours be a prayer which brings together the voices of all humanity.” (This Rosary in visual art is designed only for use among the Catholics, and not meant for ecumenical or interfaith dialogue.)

  • Prayer to the Holy Spirit. Feb 11, 1951 “Lord Jesus Christ, son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degenerations, disaster and war. May The Lady of All Nations be our advocate.” Amen.
  •  Fr. Bob Bedard, founder of the companions of the Cross remarked that when people began to pray for intentions, he was struck that some requests seemed “so small, so picayune, too small to bother God about”. One woman prayed about renting her spare room. Most prayed about sickness or petty personal problems. Let us all pray the national rosary for our own country and countrymen, BEFORE we pray for our personal intentions.
