October is the month of the Holy Rosary. Who’s ready to commit to a daily Rosary this month? Mary herself, along with popes and saints and Doctors of the Church have recommended the practice of a daily Rosary, especially in a family, with friends, or in a church. In this box you’ll find some of our favorite ways to make praying the Rosary in the home and/or with a group a little easier to manage. You’ll also find a prayerful way to honor Saint Jude, patron of impossible causes, an artistic way to honor Saint Luke, patron of artists, and some pencils that bring the two saints together!

To Jesus, through Mary!

“The month of October is dedicated to the Rosary. If you’re already doing a regular family Rosary, awesome! Keep it up. If you’re not, or if you were before but you’re not now, this is the month to do it.

It’s impossible to overstate the beauty and power of a daily family Rosary. Pope Saint John Paul II tells us, ‘The Holy Rosary, by age-old tradition, has shown itself particularly effective as a prayer which brings the family together. . . The family that recites the Rosary together reproduces something of the atmosphere of the household of Nazareth: its members place Jesus at the center, they share his joys and sorrows, they place their needs and their plans in his hands, they draw from him the hope and the strength to go on.’”
(Excerpt from the CAY Compendium)


Your family rosaries will stay tangle-free and inspiringly visible on this wooden rosary hanger. Slight assembly required.


Praying the Rosary in a family or group of friends just got a little easier! Store the ring with your rosaries on the wall hanger. When it’s time to pray, distribute the number charms 0-5 to designate the person leading the opening and closing prayers (0) and each decade (1-5). Use the lobster clasp to attach the charm(s) to the appropriate spot(s) on individual rosaries.


Use these mini and regular M&Ms with the printable edible rosary page in the CAY Membership Library here. To make more rosaries, supplement with other candies, cereal pieces, or snacks.

SAINT LUKE - 10/18

“Saint Luke the evangelist is believed to have been a gentile Greek. He was an early convert to Christianity after the death of Jesus, a disciple of Saint Paul, and the author of the Gospel of Saint Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. He is the only gentile author of the Bible. His symbol as an evangelist is a winged ox.

He was a physician and an artist, and tradition says he was the first painter of icons, and, specifically, that he was the painter of the very first icon, one of Our Lady.

It's also a good day to read the Gospel of Saint Luke, or pray one of the three beautiful canticles he preserved for us: the Magnificat (Our Lady to Saint Elizabeth), the Benedictus (Saint Zechariah in thanksgiving for Saint John the Baptist), and the Nunc Dimittis (Saint Simeon at the presentation at the temple).”

Saint Luke’s symbol as an evangelist is a winged ox or cow, which is the inspiration for this fun feast day dinner!

Become an icon painter just like Saint Luke! Create painted wooden plaques featuring Our Lady of Czestochowa and Our Lady of Perpetual Help and display them on their own little easels.

To accommodate extra painters, additional outline copies of the icons can be printed at home. Cardstock is recommended. Find the PDF in the CAY Membership Library here.


Saint Jude and Saint Luke come together with this Luke 1:37 pencil.

    SAINT JUDE - 10/28

    In the Bible, he’s also as Jude or Judas (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot) and Thaddeus and the brother of James, and was one of the original twelve apostles of Jesus. Tradition tells us that he traveled with Simon the Zealot as a missionary to Egypt, Armenia, and Persia, where he was martyred by the ax. Jude is often shown in artwork with a flame above his head, representing his presence at Pentecost. (Simon was there too, but doesn’t usually get a flame.) Jude is also shown wearing a large medallion. This is known as the Image of Edessa, and is said to have been a miraculous image of the face of Jesus on a piece of cloth, created by Jesus at the request of an ailing king and sent to the king by Jude after Jesus’ death.


    Attach your sticker to this nine-day novena candle, and write down your most impossible intention. From October 19 - 27, pray this novena by to ask Saint Jude to help. Leave the candle burning whenever you can supervise it.


    Add it to a keychain, backpack, purse, or necklace to remember Saint Jude’s intercession.


    This old school classic flaming dessert is excellent for the feast of Saint Jude, as he is traditionally depicted with a tongue of flame over his head!
