The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom;
his tongue speaks what is right. Godís teaching
is in his heart; his steps do not falter.
Psalm 37: 30, 31
When I came to you, brothers, proclaiming the mystery of
God, I did not come with sublimity of words or of wisdom.
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except
Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling, and
my message and my proclamation were not with persuasive
(words of) wisdom, but with a demonstration of spirit and
power, so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom
but on the power of God.
Yet we do speak a wisdom to those who are mature, but not a
wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age who
are passing away.
Rather, we speak Godís wisdom, mysterious, hidden, which
God predetermined before the ages for our glory, and which
none of the rulers of this age knew; for if they had known it,
they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
But as it is written: "What eye has not seen, and ear has not
heard, and what has not entered the human heart, what God
has prepared for those who love him," this God has revealed
to us through the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:1-10a
In the midst of the Church he opened his
mouth, and the Lord filled him with the
spirit of wisdom and understanding and
clothed him in a robe of glory.
cf. Sirach 15:5
"The Rosary is a priceless
treasure inspired by God."
The Rosary is made up of two things: mental prayer and
vocal prayer....mental prayer is meditation of the chief
mysteries of the life, death and glory of Jesus Christ and His
The Holy Rosary is composed principally... of the Prayer of
Christ (Our Father) and the Angelic Salutation (Hail Mary).
"...if you want to reach these hardened souls and win
them over to God, preach my Angelic Psalter, which
is the foundation stone of the New Testament."
Inspired by the Holy Ghost, instructed by the Blessed
Virgin as well as by his own experience, Saint Dominic
preached the Holy Rosary for the rest of his life....by his
example as well as by his sermons, in cities and country
places, to people of high station and low, before scholars
and the uneducated, to Catholics and to heretics.
"... urge people to say
my Rosary, and in this
way your words will bear
much fruit for souls."
Excerpts from The Secret of the Rosary by St. Louis de Montfort
tr. by Mary Barbour,T.O.P.
If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.
He taught his missionaries the art of preaching to the heart by
animating them with charity. Being once asked after preaching
in what book he had studied his sermon,
"In no other," said he, "than in that of love."(1)
