in the COnfraternity
The Rosary while always personal is not an individual devotion alone.
It's also a communal act. When we join together to pray the Rosary, to contemplate Christ with Mary, we grow not just as Christians but as the Church. Whenever two or three are gathered, there Christ is (MT 18:20). St. Augustine also said it well:
"The main reason for your coming together is to be of one mind and one heart on the way to God."
That is where the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary comes into the picture.
It is a coming together as brothers and sisters in order to share in the Mysteries and Life of Christ, Her Son and Our Lord.
As Dominicans everything we do is a communal and common act, bound together by our vows.
The Confraternity allows lay men and women to participate in a similar communal act and to participate in our Charism to contemplate and to share the fruits of that contemplation (Contemplare et contemplata aliis tradere).
