October – Month of the Holy Rosary

Pope Leo XIII released the encyclical Octobri Mense on September 22, 1891.  In it, he urges the faithful to “redouble their piety towards the august Mother of God, the mighty helper of Christians, and [to] pray to her throughout the month, invoking her by that most holy rite of the Rosary which the Church, especially in the passage of difficult times, has ever used for the accomplishment of all desires.”

Pray the rosary often.  If there is a 40 Days for Life campaign near you, that is a great place to go and pray the rosary.
