The Holy Rosary

What is the Holy  Rosary?
The rosary is a med­i­ta­tion on the life of Jesus Christ. The rosary is the great­est weapon against evil. Dur­ing the Appari­tion at Fatima in 1917, our Lady requested that we pray the Rosary daily. The rosary will change your life.

The word Rosary means “Crown of Roses.” Our Lady “has revealed to sev­eral peo­ple that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giv­ing her a beau­ti­ful rose and that each com­plete Rosary makes her a crown of roses.… The rose is the queen of flow­ers, and so  the Rosary is the rose of all devo­tions and it is there­fore the most impor­tant one.” (The Secret Of The Rosary, St. Louis De Mont­fort, Sev­enth Rose, p. 26). To learn more about the rosary, read the book: “The Secrets of the Rosary” by St. Louis de Mont­fort avail­able at Tan Books and many catholic stores.

There is no prob­lem, I tell you, no mat­ter how dif­fi­cult it is, that we can­not solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
Sis­ter Lucia (One of the Seers of Fatima, 1917).

The Holy Rosary is a gift come down from heaven;  a great present that God gives to His most faith­ful ser­vants. God is the Author of the prayers of which it is com­posed and
of the mys­ter­ies it con­tains.”
St. Louis de Montfort

There is no surer means of call­ing down God’s bless­ings upon the fam­ily … than the daily recita­tion of the rosary.”
Pope Pius XII

Among all the devo­tions approved by the Church, none  has been favored by so many mir­a­cles as the devo­tion of the Most Holy Rosary.”
Pope Pius IX

The Rosary is the weapon.”
Blessed Padre Pio

The prayers of the Rosary(15 decades)and “The Beads”(5 decades)are, after the Sacred Liturgy of the Eucharist what unites us the most to God through the rich­ness of the prayers which com­pose it, all com­ing from Heaven, dic­tated by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
~ Sis­ter Lucia (Vision­ary of Fatima) to Mother Maria Jose Martins

 “Pray the Rosary every­day, in order to obtain peace for the world ….”
Our Lady of Fatima (1917)

Even the Pope does not fail to recite the Rosary every­day before he goes to sleep. Through the Rosary the faith­ful receive abun­dant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”~ Pope John Paul II

Dear broth­ers and sis­ters, recite the rosary every day. I earnestly urge pas­tors to pray the rosary and to teach peo­ple in their Chris­t­ian com­mu­ni­ties how to pray it.”
Pope John Paul II

The Extra­or­di­nary Ben­e­fits of the Rosary:Seven Great Bless­ings
In The Secret of the Rosary (p.65), St. Louis De Mont­fort states: “The Rosary recited with med­i­ta­tion on the mys­ter­ies brings about the fol­low­ing mar­velous results:

1. It grad­u­ally gives us per­fect knowl­edge of Jesus Christ

2. it puri­fies our souls, wash­ing away sin;

3. it gives us vic­tory over all our enemies;

4. it makes it easy for us to prac­tice virtue;

5. it sets us on fire with love of Our Blessed Lord;

6. it enriches us with graces and merits;

7. it sup­plies us with what is needed to pay all our debts to God and to our fel­low men, and finally, it obtains all kinds of graces for us from Almighty God.”

When you say your Rosary the Angels rejoice, the Blessed Trin­ity delights in it, my Son finds joy in it too, and I myself am hap­pier than you can pos­si­bly imagine ….”

~Our Lady to Blessed Alan de la Roche

 

The Fif­teen Promises to Chris­tians who pray the Rosary
(Given to Blessed St. Dominic and Blessed Alan de la Roche)

1. Who­ever shall faith­fully serve me by the recita­tion of the Rosary, shall receive sig­nal graces.

2. I promise my spe­cial pro­tec­tion and the great­est graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.

3. The Rosary shall be a pow­er­ful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, decrease sin and defeat heresies.

4. It will cause virtue and good works to flour­ish; it will obtain for souls the abun­dant mercy of God; it will with­draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its van­i­ties, and will lift them to the desire of eter­nal things. O that souls would sanc­tify them­selves by this means.

5. The soul which rec­om­mends itself to me by the recita­tion of the Rosary, shall not perish.

6. Who­ever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, apply­ing him­self to the con­sid­er­a­tion of its sacred Mys­ter­ies, shall never be con­quered by mis­for­tune. God will not chas­tise him in His jus­tice, he shall not per­ish by an unpro­vided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God, and become wor­thy of eter­nal life.

7. Who­ever shall have a true devo­tion for the Rosary shall not die with­out the Sacra­ments of the Church.

8. Those who are faith­ful to the recita­tion of the Rosary shall have, dur­ing their life and at their death, the light of God and the plen­i­tude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall par­tic­i­pate in the mer­its of the Saints in Paradise.

9. I shall deliver from Pur­ga­tory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.

10. The faith­ful chil­dren of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.

13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advo­cates of the Rosary shall have for inter­ces­sors the entire celes­tial court dur­ing their life and at the hour of death.

14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and broth­ers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.

15. Devo­tion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
