Rosary Helped To Conquer Racism

by Amy

Up until my ninth grade year, I had no major problems with black people. In my ninth grade year, however, I got in two fights with them, one of which I was picked up and slammed against the wall and the other, I was punched in the eye. To add insult to injury, I was also humiliated in front of the class by a black teacher and two of the black teachers I had didn't care about what they were teaching. I was like a speck of salt in a pepper shaker. That's how I felt anyway. These things happened to me long before I became Catholic.

When I was in the process of becoming a Catholic about 8 years later, my sponsor was a professor at a black university in town. She had no idea that I had had these problems before. She also invited me to help at the first annual African American Night at church, where they had African and African-American food and a Mass by an African priest.

I had learned how to say the rosary, about a year before when I started my research on Catholicism. Before the Mass at African-American Night, I decided to pray a rosary and all the ill feelings I had had toward blacks that had built up over the years suddenly vanished as if they had never been there before.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
