Happy Feast of the Most Holy Rosary!

Happy Feast of the Most Holy Rosary!

Editor writes…

The above hymn is beautiful, but not the tune most of us in Scotland (if not across the UK) learned growing up.  I’ve tried to find that tune, but if there’s one online, it’s well hidden. Anyway, this lovely version is published to give honour to Our Lady on this important Feast, with its link to the famous Battle of Lepanto.

Our Lady revealed to the Fatima seer, Sr Lucia, that the rosary has been given a fresh power in our times, so that, Sr Lucia says: “There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls.”

As is usual with Feast Day threads, share your own stories about the Feast, your favourite hymns, poems and prayers – and even jokes of the good, clean fun variety.

But, above all, let’s make sure we remember to pray our rosary today – Happy Feast everyone!

    That really is a lovely tune, although not the usual one I have always known. It’s still lovely though, very gentle.

    Happy Feast to one and all at Catholic Truth Scotland!

      I do prefer the other tune, but that is nice, as well. It will please Our Lady and that’s the main thing!

    Happy Feast of the Rosary!

    I checked out the clean fun jokes channel and found this to share – I hope it’s not considered too irreverent, LOL!

      Great joke, LOL!

      Happy Feast of the Most Holy Rosary everyone!

      Today is also the First Friday – thought I’d remind everyone because it’s a week later than you’d think!

    My favourite is I’ll Sing a Hymn to Mary but the ones on YouTube sing two or three verses only and they sing them twice, weird! Anyway, I thought I’d post this one anyone.

      This version doesn’t double up the verses, but it adds one I’ve never heard of and misses out the most important verse IMHO – “But in the crown of Mary, there lies a wondrous gem” (the Immaculate Conception verse). So, that’s disappointing but they all miss out that one, it’s strange.

    The power of the Rosary was made very clear at the Battle of Lepanto – this video documentary is less than ten minutes, and only premiered 12 hours ago, so I think everyone will find it useful.

    Wishing everyone a very happy and holy Feast today.
