Meaningful. Complex. Opportunity. Collaborative spirit. Challenged. Prayerful.

Those were just some of the words used as those involved in the diocesan Implementation Commission working retreat prayerfully reflected on their part in the Faith in Our Future process during their two-day gathering held June 20-21 in the Chancery, Lawrenceville.

Twenty-one commissioners came together to review, evaluate and respond to the implementation plans offered by each of the Diocese’s 25 Cohorts. They were joined by six individuals who have been assisting the Cohorts in this process as project managers, as well as diocesan officials and outside consultants.

Author says rosary 'can help us achieve peace in the world'

The history of the rosary traces to the 13th century. It is believed that Mary gave St. Dominic the rosary to rescue the church from the Albigensian heresy.

Initially, 150 Hail Marys were prayed as a part of the rosary.

"The prayer of the rosary, originally composed of 150 Hail Marys, is based on the 150 psalms of the Psalter prayed in monasteries since antiquity," said Gretchen Crowe, editor-in-chief of OSV Newsweekly in Huntington, Indiana, and author of the new book "Why the Rosary, Why Now?"
