OCTOBER, the MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY

Soon it will be that time when we are reminded of the importance of uniting our prayers with the Mother of God and conforming ourselves to Christ as revealed in the mysteries of His life. We grow in our appreciation of Christ through meditating on these mysteries. We do, however, need to be careful that our prayer does not become wordy and mechanical.  Pope Paul VI said “Without contemplation, the Rosary is a body without a soul.”  therosary3.com is a scriptural Rosary.  Whether you are already in the habit of praying the Rosary and want to renew the spirit of your prayer or whether you are new to the Rosary and want to learn how to quieten your mind and heart, therosary3.com will help you enter more deeply into the Mysteries of Christ.   Come then, come to a quiet place within … visit therosary3.com

Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Gallegos

 
Earlier this summer, Bishop Soto sent a letter regarding the Cause of the Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Gallegos.  We are happy to announce that Cardinal Prefect Angelo and Cardinal Amato from the Congregation of the Cause of Saints anticipates the process of submitting the Cause for Bishops in the fall of 2016.
 
Per Cardinal Amato, "the recognition of a miracle through the intercession of the Servant of God is required for Beatification.  I encourage you and all the parishioners of your respective communities to promote awareness of Bishop Gallegos and invoke his intercession.  Please click here for additional information on the process and requirements for sainthood.
