THE MOST HOLY NAME OF MARY, MOTHER OF GOD & BLESSED VIRGIN
[Monday, September 12, 2022 / segunda-feira 12 de setembro de 2022] Almost Midnight Edition for Subscribers to The Rosary Hour Podcast Newsletter [2nd Edition]
The very Rev. Father CHRIS ALAR, MIC, Provincial Superior, Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy Province "Father Joseph" & Director of the Association of Marian Helpers generously took time out of his busy schedule to assist with the launch of The Rosary Hour Podcast’s *new* YouTube Channel featuring Season 1 of our podcast Mini Series about “The Rosary, the Rosary Priest & the School of Mary.”
This Rosary Mini Series consists of many special guests who want to share their intimate relationship with God, Jesus and the Blessed Mother as witnessed by their lives, ministry, writing, careers, and devotion.
The Mother of God wants all of her children to gather together in “prayer of the heart” which she calls us to do with the prayer of the Holy Rosary.

At Pontevedra, Blessed Lúcia was charged with the task of advancing the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the world through inspiring others to attend First Saturday Devotion and also to pray the Holy Rosary every day.
This task is our challenge, one we are all called to undergo; so that, through prayer of the heart, peace might flourish in our world so in need of the transformative power of the Holy Spirit and the miracle of Divine Mercy.
Since its inception, Venerable Father Patrick Peyton, the Rosary Priest, has been the Patron of The Rosary Hour Podcast.
We look to Father Peyton and the saints who felt a great passion and zeal for teaching the Rosary of the Mother of God.
Whether the talk is about understanding prayer, the Holy Rosary, the Gospel, Divine Mercy, or other rich topics of conversation held at the Digital Café, we hope this Mini Series on the Holy Rosary will provide fruitful opportunities for learning and reflection.
Here to help us on this exciting journey with the Mother of God is Father Chris Alar, MIC to introduce Father Anthony and to invite all our listeners to grasp the power of understanding “the why” behind our prayers.
