Monthly Prayer Leaflet for the Rosary Teams
Our theme for the year:
“To hope against all hope” (Rom 4:18)
What does this great hope rely on? On the fact that God keeps his promises: He sent his Son not to condemn the world but to save it. Jesus is the Savior of the world who went up to the end of his mission by giving his life on the cross. But God raised him from the dead and made him enter his glory. He drew his mother Mary in his glory and wish to draw us too in his glory as he is the firstborn from the dead, the firstborn of many brethren. That is to say that we walk after him!
God keeps his promises and we know that at Christmas the Word was made flesh! God has visited his people; he did not abandon us into the darkness of sin! God is definitely with us through Jesus Christ born of Mary!
That is why Mary sings her Magnificat while John the Baptist dances in Elisabeth womb : Joy is back on earth because God is with us!
At Christmas, we sing the event of God who comes in the flesh!!
At the end of time, God will come in his glory because He is the conqueror of death!
Between the two advents, this is the time of the Church, our time!
And the Risen Jesus does not cease to be with us: He gives us His Holy Spirit, He tells us his word, he gives himself in the Eucharist and lets himself be met in our brothers, especially those who suffer in their bodies, their hearts and their minds.
That's why we sing "Magnificat" with Mary!
In December 2014, like Mary, I suggest that each member of the Rosary Teams writes or says his/her "Magnificat" by telling about the wonders of God who keeps his promises in their lives!
in thanksgiving for Jesus our Savior!
