Saint Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, Patron Saint of North Carolina (Feast Date: October 7)
Extract from To Our Lady of the Rosary: “O Virgin Mary, grant that the recitation of thy Rosary may be for me each day, in the midst of my manifold duties, a bond of unity in my actions, a tribute of filial piety, a sweet refreshment, an encouragement to walk joyfully along the path of duty. Grant, above all, O Virgin Mary, that the study of thy fifteen mysteries may form in my soul, little by little, a luminous atmosphere, pure, strengthening, and fragrant, which may penetrate my understanding, my will, my heart, my memory, my imagination, my whole being. So shall I acquire the habit of praying while I work, without the aid of formal prayers, by interior acts of admiration and of supplication, or by aspirations of love.” See PICTURE of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Saint Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, Patron Saint of Guatemala (Feast Date: October 7)
Extract from: Our Lady of the Rosary : “Pope St. Pius V established this feast in 1573. The purpose was to thank God for the victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto—a victory attributed to the praying of the rosary. Clement XI extended the feast to the universal Church in 1716. . . .’The rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at a heart a Christ-centered prayer.
