Friends of the Rosary,

Many saints—St. Bernard, St. Bonaventure, and St. Louis de Montfort, among them—reminded us that there are three steps to go to God.

The first and most suited to our capacity is the Virgin Mary. The second is Jesus Christ, and the third is God the Father.

The Most Holy Mary is our mediatrix of intercession. She is the co-redeemer and most-perfect disciple of Jesus Christ. We meet Jesus through Mary, as the second Luminous Mystery teaches us.

And we go to God the Father through Jesus Christ, as Our Saviour told us. “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).

Why so many Christians miss these three steps for salvation?

The Holy Rosary is the answer not only for them for all mankind.

Ave Maria!

We celebrate today Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We honor his legacy as a leading voice against racism. Hope and transformative love were central to his message. We pray for the end of the sin of racism and hate. The love and light of Jesus Christ is always the answer.
