Rosary club for Form 2 Students

Teachers: – Mr. Claudette Schembri
– Ms. Jeannine Sammut                                           

Days of meeting:  Friday

“The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, simple yet profound, still remains in the third millennium, a prayer of great significance.  The Rosary represents a most effective means of fostering among the faithful that commitment to the contemplation of the Christian mystery.  By its nature, the recitation of the Rosary calls for a quiet rhythm and a lingering pace, helping the individual to meditate on the mysteries of the Lord’s life as seen through the eyes of Mary, she who was closest to the Lord.  The Rosary is considered as a prayer for peace.”

Excerpt taken from the Apostolic Letter ‘Rosarium Virginis Mariae’ of the Supreme Pontiff, John Paul II, 2002

During the club time, children learn about the Rosary and how it is connected to the Scripture.

“Intom titolbu r-Rużarju kuljum? Hekku, it-talba ma’ Marija, b’mod speċjali r-Rużarju għandha wkoll din id-dimensjoni “ta’ taqbida”, jiġifieri ta’ ġlieda, hija talba li ssaħħaħna fil-gwerra kontra l-ħażin u l-kompliċi tiegħu. Ir-Rużarju wkoll isaħħaħna f’din il-ġlieda.” [Papa Franġisku 15 ta’ Awwissu 2013]

Students have the opportunity to share their own thoughts and experience.

“Tini armata li jgħidu r-Rużarju, u jien nirbaħ id-dinja.” [Papa Piju IX]

There is time when the students and the teachers pray together.
