Can Christians Benefit from Partaking in the Catholic Rosary Prayers?

Episode 318 Show Notes 

From the Show

The danger of the Church has always been to take a Biblical core and then add to it. Here’s actually what Mary said herself, “My soul glorifies the Lord” not herself, “and my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” So she recognized she needed to be saved.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. I have been listening to the show for a while and I have heard you talk about sanctification a few times. Can you explain what you mean by that?

2. I started doing the rosary a lot later in life. But my wife is a Christian and she didn't like it. So, I stopped saying it but now I feel like I betrayed my faith. How can I fight this?

3. How does God use the Church to be a blessing in people’s lives?

4. What does it mean that Jesus is our mediator?
