Some of you may be asking yourselves, "Why another website about the Rosary?" Good question. If you Google "Rosary," you get 27,500,000 hits. There are no shortage of websites that will tell you the history of the rosary, how to say the rosary, give meditations to aid in saying the rosary, etc. The Rosary Diaries is different. We do have a page on the rosary, and a widget that will help you say the rosary. We will have posts talking about what the great Saints of the rosary have had to say, and other articles about the rosary. But we hope our blog will be a place to gather and share stories about the impact praying the Rosary has had on our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Our Lady gave us, through St. Dominic and Blessed Alan de Rupe, 15 Promise to everyone who recited the Rosary faithfully. These are:
These promises are at work every day in the lives of everyone devoted to the Rosary. Share will us how Our Lady's promises are at work in your life. Just click on the "Tell Your Story" link above and write away!
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 will 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. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means. 5. Those who recommend themselves 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 recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plentitude 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. 11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary. 12. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities. 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 to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
