26th October 2014 - Reflection on the Rosary - 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

On this weeks programme Michael Keating makes a welcome return with a reflection on the Rosary as October is the month of the Rosary. We have our regular reflection on this weeks gospel and some other liturgical odds and ends.

You can listen to the full podcast of the programme HERE.

Reflection on the Rosary

Love it or hate it, the Rosary is a prayer very much associated with the Roman Catholic faith. On this weeks programme Michael Keating takes us through a reflection on this Marian prayer which has a long history and is a guide and meditation to the events of the life of Jesus.

You can listen to the reflection on the Rosary excerpted from the main programme HERE.

How to pray the Rosary

Holy Mary Mother of God! - Reflections on the Rosary - Busted Halo - "I’m not sure about you, but I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the rosary. It stems from long road trips with my very Catholic family, where the CD I had been playing through the car speakers was suddenly turned off, my parents’ rosaries pulled out from the glove compartment and for the next 15-20 minutes I was forced to endure an incessant babble of words repeated over and over. I understood the importance of prayer, I just didn’t see why we had to make an already long and tedious drive all the more so by becoming quiet and serious, with the same two or three prayers recited in a nearly mindless chant. I was at a loss so I sat quietly while my parents prayed, waiting until I could turn the music back on...."

Mary, the Rosary and the Word of the Lord

Gospel - Matthew 22:34-40 - The Great Commandment

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sad'ducees, they came together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him. "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets."
