Icons of Mary
The Icons of Mary are images from the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth (Israel). Many countries have donated an iconic image that represents their native devotion to Our Lady. These images are on display in the courtyard of the Basilica and inside the church. With the permission of Holy Land photographers, we are able to reproduce these images into banners for this event. If you do not see your country represented, email info@oneworldonemother.com and we will work together to get a banner on display for the Mass and procession on May 5, 2012.
The Rosary
The Rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. The word Rosary comes from the Latin word rosarium meaning garden of roses. The Rosary consists of five repeated sequences called decades and they consist of one Our Father, followed by 10 Hail Mary's and concluding with one Glory Be. In between the decades, one can say the "Oh My Jesus" prayer and conclude the rosary with the "Hail Holy Queen". The decades correspond to the five Joyful, Sorrowful, Luminous, or Glorious Mysteries, which focus on important principal events of the life of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother. We pray the Rosary to reflect and meditate on these events as well as to honor the Virgin Mary and give praise to Our Lord.
