The Power of the Rosary

When Our Lady of the Rosary appeared to three little children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917, Lucia, the oldest of the children was only 10 years old. Her two little cousins, Francisco and Jacinta, were told by Our Lady that they would go to heaven soon, but Lucia would have to wait a while longer. She became a religious sister and lived a life of prayer and sacrifice, as requested by Our lady, until her death in 2005. Regarding the praying of the Rosary, Sr. Lucia said:

"Let people say the Rosary every day. Our Lady stated that repeatedly in all her apparitions, as if to fortify us against these times of diabolical disorientation so that we would not allow ourselves to be deceived by false doctrines."

"The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Holy Rosary. She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal, or above all, spiritual in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary."


40 DAYS FOR LIFE DAY 15: Overcoming the darkness

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
