Concerning the Rosary, Our Lady herself said to Padre Pio: "With this weapon you will win." Convinced of the power of the Rosary, Padre Pio always held the Rosary in his hands. When his death was approaching, he recommended the Rosary to his spiritual children by saying: "Love Our Lady and make her loved. Always recite the Rosary."
Padre Pio always wore the Rosary around his arm at night. A few days before his death, as Padre Pio was getting into bed, he said to the friars who were in his room, "Give me my weapon!" And the friars, surprised and curious, asked him: "Where is the weapon? We cannot see anything!" Padre Pio replied, "It is in my habit, which you have just hung up!" After having gone through the pockets of his religious habit, the friars said to him: "Padre, there is no weapon in your habit! . . . we can only find your rosary beads there!" Padre Pio immediately said, "And is this not a weapon? . . . the true weapon?!"
Padre Pio instructed: "Recite the Rosary and recite it always and as much as you can."
To Padre Onorato Marcucci, grabbing the Rosary that he had put few seconds on the nightstand: "With this, one wins the battles."

Here are a few things to update you.
I went to the Christ Our Life Conference in Des Moines Iowa. It was wonderful to see Cardinal Dolan!
I also had a great time with my friends who are fellow Catholic artisans.
Here are a few things that I've done recently and I also can't forget to mention the Catholic Marketing Network show that I did in Chicago. That was a rewarding experience!
Now for the fall! I'm busy creating new pieces to post on my Etsy site. I will add more towards mid October to late October until Christmas. Wow, hard to believe that is only a short time away. I still want to enjoy fishing at my favorite lake before it gets too cold.
