To submit a request, please visit the "contact" tab at the top of this page, or click on the link below. Please feel free to request a specific date for me to pray the Rosary with your intentions in mind. Each day, I will post the intentions prayed for on that day, indicating the requestor's name by first initial included parenthetically. Most requests remain on my intention list for at least one week. No request is too small... or too big! The power of prayer is awesome. In return, I simply ask that you pray for me-- that this project is an enriching and faith-deepening spiritual journey toward the Lord!
If you would like, please feel free to make a donation. All donated money will be used to purchase Rosary-construction supplies (to be sent to military personnel deployed overseas and missionaries working with those in need of prayer aids). If a financial donation is not possible at this time, prayers are always greatly appreciated!
Number of Rosaries Constructed to Date:1508
I am just an ordinary guy who had an extraordinary experience at the grotto at Lourdes, France in October 2009. Since that time, I have been repeatedly struck with the thought that I should devote a full year-- 365 days in a row-- to praying the Holy Rosary. In response to that call, I have started this blog to both chronicle my efforts and provide the opportunity for anyone who sees it to make a prayer request. Each day I pray the Holy Rosary, I will keep the intentions sent to me in mind, through the intercession of the Blessed Mother, in service of the Lord.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and God bless you.
Each time the Blessed Virgin has appeared-- whether it be to Saint Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes; to Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco at Fatima; or to Mariette Beco at Banneux-- she has asserted the importance, saving grace, and power of praying the Holy Rosary on a daily basis. Based upon her words, the Rosary is penance and conversion for sinners, a pathway to peace, an end to war, and a powerful act of faith in Jesus Christ. Pope Paul VI presented the Rosary as a powerful means to reach Christ "not merely with Mary but indeed, insofar as this is possible to us, in the same way as Mary, who is certainly the one who thought about Him more than anyone else has ever done." To show us how this is done, perhaps no one has been more eloquent than the great Cardinal Newman, who wrote: "The great power of the Rosary consists in the fact that it translates the Creed into Prayer. Of course, the Creed is already in a certain sense a prayer and a great act of homage towards God, but the Rosary brings us to meditate again on the great truth of His life and death, and brings this truth close to our hearts. Even Christians, although they know God, usually fear rather than love Him. The strength of the Rosary lies in the particular manner in which it considers these mysteries, since all our thinking about Christ is intertwined with the thought of His Mother, in the relations between Mother and Son; the Holy Family is presented to us, the home in which God lived His infinite love."
As Mary said at Fatima, "Jesus wants to use you to make Me known and loved. He wishes to establish the devotion to My Immaculate Heart throughout the world. I promise salvation to whoever embraces it; these souls will be dear to God, like flowers put by Me to adorn his throne."
