Keys to the Kingdom

"...upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 16:18-9)

Pope John Paul II’s devotion to Holy Mary cannot be understood without reference to his beloved Poland, a country distinguished by its intensely fervent Marian fervor.

The Rosary: I’ve been doing it wrong!

It’s embarrassing to admit that I’ve been praying the Rosary incorrectly for four years. At first it was really bad: when I was researching Catholicism I constantly heard about the astounding power of the Rosary, so I decided to give it a shot.

Then, a few weeks ago, I was in Adoration and had one of those moments where something I should have known and did kind of subconsciously know finally got through to me and ended up being a major revelation. I suddenly realized:
