Last week we entered into October  – a month dedicated to the Holy Rosary.  Its a reminder that we can look to Mary not only as an example, but also as a friend who prayes with us when we need her the most.

Think about who you want to pray for at the moment and maybe take some time this week to come to pray with Mary.

If you’re unsure of what the rosary is or why we use it for and during prayer, then never fear, you’ll be learning about it through this weeks collective worship!

We end by making the Sign of the Cross.

The word rosary comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolise the Virgin Mary. If you were to ask what object is most emblematic of Catholics, people would probably say, “The rosary, of course.”

Luke 1:38

So Mary said, “Yes, I am a servant of the Lord; let this happen to me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.

This piece of scripture highlights how Mary never said ‘no’ to God.

Are you guilty of saying ‘no’ to things. ‘No’ to knew opportunities, ‘no’ to new friends, ‘no’ to helping around the house, ‘no’ to God?

Take a minute to think about how you can be more like Mary and say ‘yes’ to all of the opportunities given to you.

Praying the Rosary can give us an opportunity to build upon and strengthen our community. Often, before we pray the rosary we can give our intentions, this is when we decide who we would like to pray for.

Is there anyone or a group of people who you would like us to remember in our prayers this week? This can be an individual, such a s sick relative or a group of people, such as those who are suffering across the world due to the refugee crisis.

Write the names of those people who you would like remembered in our prayers in the comment box below and your intentions will be offered up during the next school mass.
