Br. Damien Novak is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal. He began to pray the Rosary thanks to the road trips he went on with his youth group. Later on, in seminary it went from a communal prayer to a personal prayer after having done the Total Consecration to Mary. He insists that the Rosary is what keeps the faith alive today. For him, praying it first thing every morning is like placing himself beneath Our Lady’s mantle and beneath her loving protection.
