Holy Rosary: Scripture-Based, Gospel-Inspired – Sep 30 – Homily – Fr Alan

Views 259


On the memorial of St. Jerome (Priest and Doctor of the Church, Sep 30, 2019), Fr. Alan explains that the Rosary, contrary to detractors’ claims, is a fundamentally scriptural prayer, which Pope St. John Paul II described as “a compendium of the Gospel.” Even St. Jerome,  great lover of Scripture and translator of the Bible,  would have heartily endorsed the Rosary, had he lived at a later period of the Church.
