Second, the daily Rosary harnesses enormous spiritual power in our battle with sin.
It’s a lesson we forget again and again. Our strength is not sufficient in the spiritual life. We may think we are virtuous or good, but it doesn’t take much for an unexpected temptation to defeat us.
As the Catechism (and Gaudium et Spes) shockingly puts it: “man has to struggle to do what is right, and it is at great cost to himself, and aided by God’s grace, that he succeeds in achieving his own inner integrity.”
Scripture’s answer to this problem is the repeated injunction to “watch and pray.” If we hope to stand a chance in our Christian life, we need regular, systematic, focused time to reconnect ourselves to the spiritual strength of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Brother, and Mary, our heavenly Mother.
We need the Rosary.
