St. Robert Bellarmine - The Rosary And The Practical Catholic

St. Robert Bellarmine; "The Rosary, Are You A Friend Or Foe?"

our lady of the rosaryBrethren, do we appreciate the full value of the Rosary? Are we its friends or are we its enemies? We are, you say, its friends, But alas! as many a man will say: "I am a Catholic, but I cannot say I practice my religion," so many of us will have to say: "I approve of the Rosary, but I cannot say I practice it." To each I say equally: "Stuff and nonsense; there is no Catholic but a practical Catholic, and there is no friend of the Rosary but he who practices it often and well." "He that is not with me is against me," is not less true of Christ than it is of the Church and the Rosary.
