The Holy Rosary
The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the most important one. The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It's a simple prayer, humble so much like Mary.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno
What is now the Diocese of Fresno was once a very sparsely populated desert and forest land that was one portion of the vast Diocese of Guadalajara comprising some two-thirds of the total area of Mexico. In 1769, all of Upper and Lower California were added to it.
St. Francis began his ministry with an emphasis on loving all God’s creatures to the best of his ability. He modeled what has come to define the Franciscan Spirit – a personal faith, a servant’s heart, and willing hands to help those in need. At Franciscan Media, we strive to embody St. Francis’ teachings. We encourage Christians to grow in their faith and share it with others all in the spirit of St. Francis.
