Mary… full of grace… the Lord is with thee… the Lord is with us...

Monthly Prayer Leaflet for the Rosary Teams

Our theme for the year:
“Remain in my love” (Jn 15:9)

O Mother of God and Queen of Peace, on this first day of January 2016, the Church invites us to place the year under your motherly protection. You're the first on the path of God’s humanity. You give us your Son Jesus ... "The most beautiful gift of Love" which our heart longs for, even though we are not fully aware of that. Indeed, our horizons are not limited to human decisions or changes in the world, but to the realization of the project of God in each of our lives. May his kingdom of kindness, gentleness and love come to our land! This is from the prayer of ‘Our Father’ in which we have a fellowship with each other that goes beyond our differences!

"Do not be afraid," said Saint John Paul II. This very good news was relayed by Pope Francis in November 2013 in his Apostolic Exhortation, "the Joy of the Gospel." God has a tender heart and lets himself be moved by our human "misery" and even our severe sin. That's how far his Mercy goes for each person: compassion, forgiveness, kindness, mercy ... Therefore we should not judge each other, but have indulgence for all and help each one to seek for dialogue with God. Let us give people the desire to know God.

God grants to each of us the grace of obtaining mercy and of accepting salvation through Jesus Christ who died and rose again… but God does not force us. He is infinitely respectful of our freedom ... Jesus longs to receive our response of love, and our acceptation to the salvation that he offers us.

The year 2016 will be beautiful to the extent that we welcome the opportunity suggested by Pope Francis: "The Jubilee of Mercy." We shall experience it first, and then we shall proclaim it outside the Church by leading a life full of love and all given to those who do not know God or who think that they can live down here without Him.

We wish you joy as you go on your trip of discovery of the Love of God and share it with those whose lives we share.

Throughout this extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, the Office of the International Coordination of the Rosary Teams pray with you so that «the testimony given by believers be stronger and more effective.» Pope Francis.
