“When reciting the Rosary, the important and meaningful moments of salvation history are re-lived. The various steps of Christ's mission are traced. With Mary the heart is oriented toward the mystery of Jesus. Christ is put at the centre of our life, of our time, of our city, through the contemplation and meditation of his holy mysteries of joy, light, sorrow and glory. May Mary help us to welcome within ourselves the grace emanating from these mysteries...The Rosary...contains within itself the healing power of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, invoked with faith and love at the centre of each "Hail Mary".” ADDRESS OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI Basilica of Saint Mary Major Saturday, 3 May 2008
