“The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Did you know that if you follow along with the Mass readings every day of the week, you’ll have read through almost the entire Catholic bible every three years? One of the best ways to follow along with the Mass readings is to use a Daily Roman Missal. Following along with the daily Mass readings (even when you don’t go to daily Mass) is an excellent way for Catholics to commit to a Bible reading plan and grow in the knowledge of Sacred Scripture. Who couldn’t use more of this in their life?
