Recipes for October ~ Month Dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary

"The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7th. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful."

A great way to celebrate the month is to make a commitment to pray the rosary daily, but here are a few more ideas for celebrating the feast days in October, from the archives!

  2. That rosary of cupcakes is so pretty....but man, that is a lot of cupcakes! lol...I think I need to have a few more kids before I make that one! :)

  3. Mel, since rosary bracelets that only contain beads for one decade of the rosary are also popular, maybe smaller families could make one of those in cupcakes instead of the larger version. I certainly thought about doing the smaller version for my family.
