MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR FOR LA NAVAL FIESTA 2015
Greetings of Peace to all devotees of Our Lady of the Rosary, La Naval!

"Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb." Luke 1:42 Mary is considered blessed because she belongs to the poor of Yahweh, commonly called Anawim in the Bible. As the Scripture also say, "Blessed are the poor in the spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs." The poor are blessed because they totally rely on God's providence, totally dependent on God. They have the ability to empty themselves in order for the grace of God to enter their lives.

As we celebrate the feast of the Our Lady of the Rosary, La Naval de Manila and meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, may we be reminded that true devotion to Mary lead us to Jesus, who is present among the poor ones in the society. May our devotion move us to social awareness and concrete action which the Church is asking from us- to reach out to the least, the last and the lost of the society.

This year also, the Church celebrates the year of consecrated life, Mary, as model of the consecrated life teaches us to totally rely on God's providence and dedicate our life to God. Thus we will able to truly experience the blessednes that come from the above.

May the Blessed Mother, Our Lady of the Rosary, La Naval de Manila be our inspiration in our pilgrimage of faith and lead us to serve others in life.

Happy feast day to one and all!!!
