It’s a Wrap for the 2015 “Power of the Rosary” Film Contest and Rosary Drawing.

Ashly of the United Kingdom will receive the Rosary blessed by Pope Francis as part of the contest sponsored by Our Lady’s Rosary Makers (www.OLRM.org).

She had this to say about the Rosary: “I have noticed that it has helped me a lot with my studies. It also brings a special protection for the whole family and brings us closer to Jesus.”

From a door-to-door ministry to promote the Rosary to a playful, magical adventure and a film on the seemingly impossible task of gathering enough rosaries to equip a nation, the range of contest submissions in the film contest appealed to a varied age range and inspired others.

Diana Rizo of Texas took home the top prize of $1,000, which she donated to Holy Spirit Church whose drive to send 100,000 rosaries to Angola was the inspiration for her submission. “100,000 Rosaries for Angola”

Other top finishers were Beth Dunn with “The Bomb and the Blessed Mom;” Alan Habib with “My Mother and I” and James Sprott with “A Weapon for Our Times.” Each received $100 gift cards from B & H Photo.

“It’s been really inspiring and humbling to see how the video has spread,” commented Diana, who shared that she pulled four all-nighters as part of the production process. Praying the Rosary and knowing others were praying offered a “whole bunch of support.”

The prize money is going towards the $5,000 needed to arrange, ship and pay appropriate fees for 120 large boxes of rosaries to Angola, a journey that will take one month. With the contest prize added in, the parish had raised $3500. If you wish to make a contribution, please send it to:
