The Rosary: ‘It’s not just idle babbling’ – Fr. Steven Voss

Fr. Steven Voss - Pastor - Saint Joseph Catholic Church - Fort Collins - Colorado - 80521While preparing for the celebration of the Ascension of the Lord, Fr. Steven Voss, our pastor, finds his first, lemon-drop-yellow rosary in a box from 2nd Grade, and meditates on everything the Rosary has done for him. We too, can find deep meaning in the act of reciting the Rosary, Fr. Steven reminds us in his June 1, 2014 homily. The Ascension of the Lord, the Second Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, comes alive “when we properly pray on these beads,” says Fr. Steven. “It’s not meant to be idle babbling. They are meant to be a vital tool for coming to know Christ more intimately with the prayer and intercession of the Blessed Mother.” Click here or on the video above to listen to the full soundtrack and learn the three vital lessons Fr. Steven learned from his Rosary meditation.
