I hope you are doing well. The Pilgrim Queen of the Family's Catholic tradition consists of a traveling image of Our Lady visiting one home at a time, so that family receives many blessings when they get together to pray. As we all know, there are many ways to pray and bring our hearts closer to Jesus, and one of them is the Rosary. The image of Our Lady comes with a Rosary, and a booklet that explains how to pray the Rosary, that have all been blessed at the Basilica of Guadalupe.
How it Will Work
At the end of the mass offered for the students and families of a certain grade level, the image of Our Lady will visit and bless one of those families. At the following mass offered for that grade level, the Pilgrim Queen will visit and bless a different family, thus creating a community of faith and continuous prayer. There is one Pilgrim Queen of the Family per grade level.
How to Pray
Each family being visited by Our Lady will strive to get together to pray every day, just as the Sacred Family did! Praying is talking heart to heart with Jesus so we can learn to hear Jesus' voice in our hearts and fill them with his love and wisdom. This can be done by sharing with Jesus how our day was, saying prayers, thanking God, singing to God, reflecting on the Gospel, or praying for the intentions of our beloved ones and others, etc.
Families are encouraged to once a week take a few moments and pray the five mysteries of the Rosary. Here the Rosary booklet has great descriptions and illustrations of each one of the mysteries to guide you through, and it is a great opportunity to know Jesus' life and loving message more deeply through the eyes of our loving mother Mary. You can also contact your Connections Rep or Campus Ministry to join you praying or explain any questions you may have.
About the Rosary
The Rosary is a special prayer that helps us meditate on important events in the life of Jesus, primarily, with the help of Mary. These events are called mysteries of the Rosary, and they are divided into four groups of mysteries: Joyful Mysteries, Luminous Mysteries, Sorrowful Mysteries, and Glorious Mysteries, prayed on different days of the week. Every mystery consists of praying one Our Father, ten Hail Mary, and one Glory Be at the end. There are five mysteries in each Rosary.
Promises to those who pray the Rosary
When Our Lady appeared to the shepherds in Fatima, she promised to those who pray the Rosary, to sanctify them with graces, virtues, mercy, and love from Jesus - also, to cause virtue and good works to flourish, to destroy vices, to decrease sins, to give special protection, and the grace of final perseverance.
