The book of the blind

The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world
has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more
satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow
of this world, and open on the substance of the next.  The power of the rosary is beyond description.
- Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us.
