Recommendations for those interested in our group! (part 1)



Dear Friends,

This entry (addressed to those interested in joining our group) will be the first in a short series making concrete recommendations to prepare for and to better understand the Lord's call to service.

In any endeavor, one must first focus on his spiritual life:

(What can you, as a reader, do to learn more about the Lord in your current state of life? Here are some suggestions:)

The Rosarian charism places great emphasis on time spent in adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Secondly, reading daily from the Holy Scriptures, and if possible, recitation of morning (lauds) & (vespers) evening prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours is also recommended.

Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is essential as Our Lady helps lead us to Christ. Therefore, enrollment in the Militia Immaculata (founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe) and frequent if not daily recitation of the Holy Rosary is highly recommended.

At the heart of one's spirituality must be an internal awareness of God's presence all around us. We all search for the gift of peace and can only find it when we rest in God.

More to come!

God love you!

Ora et Labora

A PRAYER FOR THE COUNTRY FAMILY

WE BELIEVE that:

Farming is a noble Christian occupation. The farm home is a most suitable place to rear a Christian family. The good earth is the greatest material gift of God to man.

WE KNOW that:
In this vocation we country people work closely with God in producingthe essential elements of life.

By making ourselves aware of the special graces and opportunities of thisway of life, and by cooperating with them, we and our families can mostreadily give glory to God and grow in holiness and happiness.

The earth returns greatest honor to God when through our care and labor,it brings forth an abundance for our family's needs and those of society, forthis generation and for those to come.

WE PROCLAIM that:

We will strive always to appreciate and hold fast to the spiritual values ofour vocation and to prevent the materialism of this age from blinding us tothem.

We will model our homes on that of Nazareth; by working, learning,playing, and especially praying together we will strengthen our faith inGod and our mutual love and unity; we will fulfill our obligation to be goodneighbors, faithful parishioners, loyal and active citizens.

We will regard our land as God's land; as stewards of His bounty we will conserve and improve it so that it will increasingly continue to give gloryto Him.

WE PRAY that:

Through God's grace we may have wisdom and strength to grow constantly in the virtues necessary for holy rural living: Faith, Hope firmly founded in knowledge of God's wisdom and providence, Love, Patience with the slow deliberate cycle of seasonsand years, Fortitude, Temperance, Compassion, Mercy, Zeal. Amen.

WE GIVE THANKS O GOD, source and giver of all things, who manifests Your infinite majesty, power and goodnessin the earth about us,we give You honor and glory.

For the sun and rain, for the manifold fruits of our fields,for the increase of our herds and flocks,we thank You.

For the enrichment of our souls with divine grace,we are grateful. Supreme Lord of the harvest, graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil, in union with Christ Your Son,as atonement for our sins, for the growth of Your Church, for peace and charity in our homes, for salvation to all. Amen.

PRAYER IN HONOR OF SAINT ISIDORE

O GOD, who taught Adam the simple art of tilling the soil,and who through Jesus Christ, the true vine, revealed yourself the husbandman of our souls, deign, we pray, through the merits of blessed Isidore, to instill into our hearts a horror of sin and a love of prayer, so that, working the soil in the sweat of our brow, we may enjoy eternal happiness in heaven, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
