The Holy Rosary

The Daily Rosary

"Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day be led astray. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood." (St. Louis de Montfort)

   


 

"If you want peace in your heart, in your home, in your country, assemble together every night and say the Rosary." (Pope St. Pius X)

All Catholics without exception should pray the Rosary daily. This heaven-sent devotion is recommended by the popes, the saints, and even the Blessed Virgin herself. This highly indulgenced method of prayer has been called "the greatest method of praying", "the scourge of the devil", "a treasure of graces", and "the most powerful weapon". It brings immeasurable benefits to its devotees, to the Church, and to society at large.

Some top reasons why you should pray the Rosary daily:

  1. The Blessed Virgin has urged us all to pray the Rosary daily. Our heavenly Mother knows what is best for us and always has our best interests at heart. As we are warned in Revelation (12:17): "Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God's commandments and bear witness to Jesus." Don't neglect the weapon - the Rosary - that your loving Mother has recommended to you during this most difficult age!

  2. Saying the Rosary pleases Mary - "Of all the prayers, the Rosary is the most beautiful and the richest in graces; of all it is the one most pleasing to Mary, the Virgin Most Holy." (Pope St. Pius X)

  3. The Church has recommended that we all pray the Rosary daily - "[M]ay the beads of the Rosary be in the hands of all" (Pope Pius XII, "Ad Caeli Reginam", 1954)

  4. We have been instructed in Holy Scripture to "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thes. 5:17) and saints agree that prayer is necessary to save our souls! - "He who prays will be saved, he who does not pray will be damned!" (St. Alphonsus, Doctor of the Church)

  5. By praying the Rosary daily, you may acquire many indulgences for yourself and for others - "It remains to be added that great value and utility accrue to the Rosary from the abundance of privileges and favors which adorn it, and more particularly from the rich treasures of indulgences attached to it. It is evident how greatly to the advantage of all who are solicitous for their eternal salvation is the obtaining of these benefits." (Pope Leo XIII, "Diuturni Temporis", 1898 A.D.) 

  6. The Rosary focuses your mind on what is truly important.

  7. The Rosary is an excellent instructor in matters of faith.

  8. The Rosary brings peace to homes - "If you want peace in your heart, in your home, in your country, assemble together every night and say the Rosary." (Pope St. Pius X)

  9. The Rosary is associated with 15 tremendous promises (click here for more information)

  10. The Rosary benefits both yourself and society - "For We are convinced that the Rosary, if devoutly used, is bound to benefit not only the individual but society at large." (Pope Leo XIII, "Laetitiae Sanctae", 1893 A.D.)

  11. The Rosary brings many graces - "[E]xperience shows that no sooner do the people commence to practice this devotion that they open their hearts to the largest channel of grace, so as to be flooded with heavenly gifts." (Muller)

  12. Praying the Rosary keeps you from sin - "It is impossible to meditate with devotion upon the mysteries of the Rosary and live in a state of sin." (St. John Vianney)

  13. Praying the Rosary 'shows you are for God' - "I have no better way of knowing if a man is for God than if he likes to say the Hail Mary and the Rosary." (St. Louis de Montfort)

  14. Praying the Rosary assists the suffering souls in Purgatory - "Now, one of the easiest, yet one of the most powerful, means to procure relief for the souls in Purgatory is to say the beads for them with fervor... Next to Mass, no more efficacious offering can be made to God then this for the relief of the souls in Purgatory." (Muller)

  15. Praying the Rosary protects you from being led astray - "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day be led astray. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood." (St. Louis de Montfort)

  16. Praying the Rosary conquers enemies - "Whilst he stretched for the rod of the Rosary, the wicked enemies were drowned in the sea. And the victory was revealed to Pius (St. Pius V). Alleluia." (Responsory, Dominican Breviary)

  17. Miracles may result - "Number those, if you can, who, through the devotion of the Rosary, have recovered from sickness; how many captives have been set at liberty; how many have been delivered by Mary who were in danger of perishing by fire, in danger of shipwreck, in danger of war and pestilence. Go to the sanctuaries of Our Blessed Lady, and see there the many votive offerings, ornaments of gold and silver and precious stones, in commemoration of miraculous cures or other extraordinary favors obtained though the devotion of the Rosary; for in these sanctuaries of the Blessed Virgin the blind are restored to sight, the lame walk, the demons are expelled from the bodies of men. These are authentic facts, attested not only by persons of note who have heard them from others, but by thousands of eyewitnesses whose sincerity we cannot doubt; facts so numerous that, if they were all written, it would take years to read them. What favor and blessing is there that cannot be obtained by the devotion of the Rosary?" (Muller)

  18. Praying the Rosary strengthens and maintains one's faith - "It is a well-known fact that wherever the Devotion of the Rosary is practiced, there faith is warm and active." (Muller)

  19. Praying the Rosary appeases God - "Now, to appease the might of an outraged God and to bring that health of soul so needed by those who are sorely afflicted, there is nothing better than devout and persevering prayer, provided it be joined with a love for and practice of Christian life. And both of these, the spirit of prayer and the practice of Christian life, are best attained through the devotion of the Rosary of Mary." (Pope Leo XIII, "Magnae Dei Matris", 1892 A.D.)

  20. Praying the Rosary binds you with fellow Catholics throughout the world, as well as providing a link between yourself and your ancestors who have passed on.

  21. The Rosary is a scourge to the devil, your wicked enemy who wants to see you in hell and does all he can to accomplish your ruin - "Next to the holy sacrifice of the Mass, there is, indeed, nothing more terrifying to [the devil], nor does he bear a more implacable hatred to anything than to the devotion of the Rosary." (Muller)

  22. The Rosary is very powerful - "The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description." (Archbishop Fulton Sheen)

  23. The Rosary may bring you countless rewards. The long, proven history of the Rosary is full of good fruits. - "The well-known origin of the Rosary, illustrated in celebrated monuments of which we have made frequent mention, bears witness to its remarkable efficacy. For, in the days when the Albigensian sect, posing as the champion of pure faith and morals, but in reality introducing the worst kind of anarchy and corruption, brought many a nation to its utter ruin, the Church fought against it and the other infamous factions associated with it, not with troops and arms, but chiefly with the power of the most holy Rosary, the devotion which the Mother of God taught to our Father Dominic in order that he might propagate it. By this means the Church triumphed magnificently over every obstacle and provided for the salvation of her children not only in that trial but in others like it afterward, always with the same glorious success." (Pope Leo XIII, "Magnae Dei Matris", 1892 A.D.)

  24. If you don't say the Rosary you will be depriving yourself of a great aid to salvation. - "Impelled, therefore, by a constant desire that Christians should ever be convinced of the efficacy and dignity of the Rosary of Our Lady, We first of all pointed out that the origin of this form of prayer is divine rather than human, showing it to be an admirable garland woven from the Angelic Salutation, together with the Lord's Prayer, joined to meditation, and that this form of prayer was most powerful and particularly efficacious for attaining eternal life." (Pope Leo XIII, "Diuturni Temporis", 1898 A.D.)

  25. The Rosary may even cause your soul to be saved - "...for you ought to know that the salvation of my soul depends on saying the Rosary." (St. Alphonsus, Doctor of the Church)

And, finally, there is no valid excuse for not praying the Rosary daily: "Dear Christian, there is no valid excuse for not practicing the daily devotion of the Rosary, and for the most part, those who make these objections and excuses are influenced by a secret unwillingness to lead a Christian life in good earnest. They are unwilling to practice retirement, detachment from creatures, and self-denial. They omit saying the beads in order to avoid the rebuke of their conscience for their sensuality, price, vanity, uncharitableness, and sloth. Miserable are the consequences of such a course of conduct. Not being willing to seek true peace of heart in religion, such men try to find their consolation in exterior things; they multiply faults and imperfections in proportion as they withdraw from God." (Muller)

Do you protest that you don't have time to pray the Rosary each day? You really can't find 15 minutes a day to spend with the Blessed Mother and her Son Jesus? Do you expect things from God each moment of the day (air, nourishment, life, health, etc.), but you can't give back 15 minutes? Do you manage to find fifteen minutes for coffee or e-mail or the Internet or television or the telephone or the newspaper, but you can't find 15 minutes for something that will only bring you benefits? You really can't set aside 15 minutes to help save your own soul? If this is the case, should you not seriously rethink your priorities? "For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?" (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Mt. 16:26)

"I beg of you to beware of thinking of the Rosary as something of little importance - as do ignorant people and even several great but proud scholars. Far from being insignificant, the rosary is a priceless treasure which is inspired by God." (St. Louis de Montfort)
