I was re-reading Mary's Beads of Transformation by Patricia M. McCormack, Ed.D this morning. I was reminded that the Rosary is transformative I have so much proof of it in my life.
Our Blessed Mother did not change Michael, she transformed him. She brought Michael back to her Son, Jesus Christ. She and her Rosary were his comfort and consolation. The Rosary brought me home to the Church and helped my Prayer Partner find her way to the Church.
Our Blessed Mother was not content with these, no she is transforming my sister and my niece and her husband. She uses the Rosary as a life-line. When all seems lost she places the Rosary in our hands and and gently pulls us into the arms of her Son.
I would be remiss if I didn't also thank St. Therese of Lisieux. She has been and continues to be a powerful intercessor.
For me the Rosary is not only the way home it is the way to transformation.
