Rosary devotion before mass

"Say the Rosary every day... Pray, pray a lot and offer sacrifices for sinners... I'm Our Lady of the Rosary. Only I will be able to help you. ...In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph." Our Lady at Fatima
Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. T he word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lays the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It's a simple prayer, humble so much like Mary. It's a prayer we can all say together with Her, the Mother of God. With the Hail Mary we invite Her to pray for us. Our Lady always grants our request. She joins Her prayer to ours. Therefore it becomes ever more useful, because what Mary asks She always receives, Jesus can never say no to whatever His Mother asks for. In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary as a powerful weapon against evil, to bring us to true peace. Each day, through prayer we can drive away from ourselves and from our homeland many dangers and many evils.
In our initiation in this Order we pledged to pray the Rosary, and with good reason. Inspired by the confidence, and trusting in the truths of Holy Mother Church what better way is there for us to pray than by praying the Rosary. There are also a great number of indulgences that are available by praying in a group, especially before Mass and upon praying for the intentions of Holy Father. Our Council has stepped up to the plate and has taken charge in leading our parish and our own families in praying the Rosary; not only before Mass but in our homes, at our jobs.
We have organized a schedule, approved by Father where Knights lead the parish in praying the Rosary at all three Sunday Masses. We have been so successful in leading this Rosary devotion, and we are dedicated to its cause. We pray with such fervor, especially for the Unity of Holy Mother Church and her priests. We as Catholic Gentlemen show our allegiance to the true teachings of Holy Mother Church, and our solidarity to our parish priest and take the lead as an example of our manhood, and ultimately or Knighthood.
