This month is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. We are once again reminded about the importance of intercession. When Abraham pleaded for the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, God promised to spare the people of those cities from destruction if at least ten good people were found to be living there. When Moses pleaded with the Lord on Mount Sinai for the people, the Lord changed His mind about the disaster He was going to bring on the Israelites. He is a merciful Father who does not intend anything bad for His children. Through the intercession of Mary our Mother and the saints, God answers the prayers of His beloved children.
The Holy Father has asked Christians all over the world to pray that “the breath of the Holy Spirit engenders a new missionary ‘springtime’ in the Church. “The feasts of some of the most popular saints, such as St Therese the Little Flower, St Francis of Assisi, St Teresa of Avila are celebrated during this month. These saints are a source of encouragement to all Christians, and great models to be imitated. In
this issue, we have a beautiful vocation story and life changing testimonies which propels us towards the kindness of our loving God.
It’s a month to be holy. Perhaps each one of us can pick one virtue that each of these saints practiced well and try to implement it in our lives.
