Our Lady of the Rosary Feast Day, October 7.
October: Dedicated to the Month of the Holy Rosary.
Via Catholic Online
The feast dedicated to “Our Lady of the Rosary” was instituted by Pope Pius V. It was to commemorate the anniversary of the defeat of the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto on the first Sunday in October 1571. This miraculous defeat broke the back of Muslim domination of the Mediterranean and was attributed to the prayers and processions of the Rosary confraternity in Rome. The Feast was later moved to the fixed date of October 7. In fact, the entire month of October is dedicated to encouraging the praying of the Rosary and reflecting on the mysteries of the Christian faith which it memorializes.
Pope John Paul II stated,
The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at the heart a Christocentric prayer. In the sobriety of its elements, it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety, of which it can be said to be a compendium. . . . Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”

Peace Gives The Lord: John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The Lord gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
Father I come before You today as I feel weighed down by the increasing numbers of burdens and battles, stresses and strains that seem to be building up in my life.
Enable me to rest beside Your still waters of refreshment and sleep in Your arms of comfort give me I pray that peace – that perfect peace that only flows from You to those that have their mind stayed on You. Keep my heart and mind focused on Jesus I pray and help me not to be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication making my requests known to You – with a thankful heart. In this I pray, Amen

The Archangel Michael, Our Protector: Jude 9, Revelation 12: 7-9.
St. Michael the Archangel
9 But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.”
Revelation 12: 7-9
7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, 8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Pope Francis consecrated the Vatican to St. Michael the Archangel’s protection, saying:
We are not alone on the journey or in the trials of life, we are accompanied and supported by the Angels of God, who offer, so to speak, their wings to help us overcome so many dangers, in order to fly high compared to those realities that can weigh down our lives or drag us down. In consecrating Vatican City State to St. Michael the Archangel, I ask him to defend us from the evil one and banish him.”

National Coffee Day, September 29.
This is my favorite drink , black with organic raw sugar. I am drawn to Latin and Central American beans. I like the oil it brews. I need this stimulate, caffeine, in the morning to get my body moving in the right direction. Also to get my mind focused for daily activities.
I purchase my own beans at Starbucks and make 2-4 cups at various times of the day.
In conclusion, coffee is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet.

Pope Francis, Mass On Parkway, Philadelphia, PA.
Pope Francis stated,
Holiness is always tied to little gestures. These little gestures are those we learn at home, in the family; they get lost amid all the other things we do, yet they do make each day different. They are the quiet things done by mothers and grandmothers, by fathers and grandfathers, by children. They are little signs of tenderness, affection and compassion. Faith grows when it is lived and shaped by love. Our families — our homes — are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life and life to become faith.”
I ask you to pray for me,”Don’t forget!”
I will not Holy Father.

Autumnal Equinox, first day of Fall, 2015.
Via Old Farmers Almanac
Fall begins on September 23, early in the morning at 4:21 A.M. The autumnal equinox is when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south. (The celestial equator is the circle in the celestial sphere halfway between the celestial poles. It can be thought of as the plane of Earth’s equator projected out onto the sphere.)
The word equinox means “equal night”; night and day are about the same length of time. This occurs two times each year: Vernal in late March and Autumnal in late September.
In addition to the (approximately) equal hours of daylight and darkness, the equinoxes are times when the Sun’s apparent motion undergoes the most rapid change. Around the time of the equinoxes, variations in the position on the horizon where the Sun rises and sets can be noticed from one day to the next by alert observers.
From here on out, the temperatures begin to drop and the days start to get shorter than the nights (i.e., hours of daylight decline).
