"It sets us on fire with love of Our Lord!"
"Souls that thirst are refreshed!"
These are just two of the benefits and blessings of the
Most Holy Rosary.
There are six more benefits and nine more blessings,
you will find them inside.
In addition, Our Blessed Mother has made 15 promises
to those that pray the Holy Rosary. You will find these
promises inside as well.
The Holy Mother Church received the Rosary in its
present form in 1214 in a miraculous way, when Our
Lady appeared to Saint Dominic and gave it to him as a
powerful means of converting the heretics and other
sinners. Since then the devotion spread around the
world with incredible and miraculous results.
One night, as Saint Dominic was deep in prayer, Our
Lady appeared to him, holding the Rosary in Her hand
and said: "Be of good cheer, Dominic, the remedy for the
evils which you lament will be meditation on the life,
death and glory of My Son, uniting all with the recitation
of the angelic salutation (Hail Mary) by which the
mystery of redemption was announced to the world.
This devotion, which you are to inculcate by your
preaching, is a practice most dear to My Son and Me.
The faithful will obtain by it innumerable advantages
and shall always find Me ready to aid them in their
wants. This is the precious gift which I leave to you and
to your spiritual children."
The Rosary Prayer is much more than the repetition of
Our Father's and Hail Mary's. It is contemplation on the
life of Jesus. It could be thought of as a walk with His
Mother as She shares the Life of Her Son with you.
