How has the rosary affected your life of faith?

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the appearances of the Blessed Mother to three children in Fatima—appearances in which she instructed the children to spread the word about the importance of praying the rosary for peace in the world, for peace in people’s hearts.

In honor of the Blessed Mother’s request, and since October is the month of the Holy Rosary, The Criterion is inviting readers to share their stories of how praying the rosary has made a difference in their lives and the lives of people they know.

Please send your responses and your stories to assistant editor John Shaughnessy by e-mail at or by mail in care of The Criterion. 1400 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202. Please include your parish and a daytime number where you can be reached. †
