EVENT DETAILS AND SCHEDULE
RENEGADE ROSARY RUN FAQ – Bear Woznick
Q: Why is the Rosary called a weapon?
A: Padre Pio proclaimed that the rosary was his great weapon. For me, it is one of my two weapons of choice. When you walk into the entrance of my home you see my second degree Ninja Blackbelt hanging on the wall and right there with it hangs my rosary. I would say I never really tasted beer until I tasted my first IPA. It can be said in the same way, that I never entered into the depth of intercessory prayer that I do now as when I pick up my rosary to intercede. I pray one decade each day for my children and when there is a need I go right into battle with my rosary, usually walking for miles down the beach fully engaged in the battle. The rosary is a great contemplative prayer tool but for me it is my weapon.

Q: The whole Rosary and Mary thing confuses me. What’s the haps on this?
A: To our non-Catholic participants: Mary is, as the early church Fathers proclaimed, Theotokis. She is the God Bearer. She was and still is the Mother of God. It’s okay for you too to be thankful to Mary and ask her to pray for you. You do not have to be Catholic to do that.
Here is the prayer “Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee. Blessed art though amongst women and blessed is the fruit of they womb; Jesus. Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death amen.”
You can see there is nothing offensive in that prayer where we somehow elevate Mary to the level of God or where we worship her in any way. Rather we come to her as Jesus did as a child and ask her for help. Just as you may go to your own mother and ask her to prayer. Mary as Christ’s mother desires the graces that she witnessed him merit for us on the cross to be released to us. Like any mother in this situation, she desires her son’s death to mean something and so she prays earnestly for each of us to receive the fullness of that grace.
The first miracle Jesus performed was at her request at the Wedding of Cana. She is our great intercessory prayer partner. She herself proclaimed “All nations shall call me blessed.” and so in this simple prayer we fulfill that scripture. You hear the words of Gabriel say: Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with you. You hear the woman’s words who proclaimed blessed is the womb that bore you. You hear her called Mother of God for Jesus called her that as a child and proclaimed her to be our mother as he spoke to John, “Behold your mother.” You see her on her knees at her Son’s death when we ask her to pray for us at the hour of our own death too.
