Delivered by Rev. Fr. Munyandamutsa Augustine from Kabale Regia
The Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary (Appendix 7)
The Rosary is a powerful weapon that many Popes that among others Pope Pius IX have talked about.
This is a special month that is dedicated to the Holy Rosary after the battle at Lepanto.
The Spiritual reading in a special way talks about being part of the family-the Rosary Confraternity in which we dedicate to say at least 20 mysteries of the rosary in a week.
In reciting the Rosary meditatively; allowing it to take root in our hearts, we are promised by Mother Mary to among others get special protection.
Those who can be able to enroll in the Rosary Confraternity, you benefit from the spiritual benefits of the dominican order and the Rosary Confraternity.
Upon death, you benefit from the suffrages and indulgences obtained from the family of the Rosary Confraternity.
There are indulgencies that are obtained through reciting of the rosary i.e. plenary indulgencies when the rosary is recited in Church, in a family group, in a consecrated place or in a religious community. To obtain these plenary indulgencies, one must have a sacrament of confession, have Eucharistic Communion and also pray for the Pope’s intentions.
Let’s always recite the Rosary as a group because we benefit greatly than individually but this should not stop us from praying the Rosary individually.
