Rosarians Welcomes You
Congregation of the Rosarians is the first indigenous contemplative and penitential congregation in Asia, which was inspired by the Holy Spirit and encouraged by the exhortation of Pope Pius XI in his Encyclical “Rerurn Ecclesia” (1926). Fr. B.A. Thomas OMI (1886-1964) founded this Congregation in 02.02.1928 at Tholagatty of Jaffna Diocese, Sri Lanka. It witnesses Christ with the charism “Marian Contemplative Life of Love and Reparation rooted in Humility.” Its special end is to make reparation in union with Lord Jesus for the sins of humanity against divine majesty and to work by the means of prayer and penance for the conversion of the sinners and for the extension of the kingdom of God everywhere with the motto “Who is like unto God.” Rosarians’ spirituality is based on the Marian contemplation of the mysteries of the Rosary centering life on the Holy Eucharist and praying the rosary kneeling before the Eucharistic lord round the clock to achieve this end.
