Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary marked in Amman

By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Bishop William Shomali, celebrated Holy Mass on Sunday, October 6, at the church of the Rosary Sisters College in Shmeisani, Amman, marking the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

The Holy Mass was concelebrated by Apostolic Nuncio in Amman Archbishop Alberto Ortega Martín, a number of priests, deacons, and nuns in addition to Counselor of the Rosary Sisters Sr. Micheline Malouf, Rosary Sisters School Director Sister Conchita Hassan, a group of Rosary Sisters, teachers, students, and a number of believers from various parts of Jordan.

In his homily, Bishop Shomali highlighted the importance of faith quoting Lord Jesus Christ as saying, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, 'be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you,” implying that if one has faith, one can attain whatever is impossible and whatever is impossible becomes possible.

He added, “Lord Jesus Christ identified faith with light, because Lord Jesus whom we believe in is the light of the world and whoever follows Him follows the path of truth and peace. Lord Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ This light can illuminate our daily lives all the time and guide us towards the Kingdom of God. Faith makes us take the right decision at the right time, and faith is the precious treasure hidden in a field we have discovered and for which we leave everything in order to own it."

He concluded his homily by mentioning examples from the Holy Bible on those whose faith changed their lives including Virgin Mary and Abraham.
At the end of the Holy Mass, Sister Lorette Zawaideh thanked Bishop Shomali on behalf of School Director Sister Conchita Hassan and Rosary Sisters pleading with the Lord to send His blessings.

Virgin Mary told St. Marie Alphonsine in one of her apparitions, “The Rosary is your treasure and it is intended to eliminate all the scourges from the world.”
