The Power of the Rosary
Prayer and Fasting are the Spiritual Weapons to Defeat Evil
You and I must pray and fast if there is to be hope for the future. Our Blessed Mother has said, ” PRAYER possesses a potent force and starts a chain reaction for good that is far more powerful than any ATOMIC REACTION.”
We have seen amazing signs of the fulfillment of our Blessed Mother’s promises about the power of prayer – especially the Rosary. There have been many battles won in history through the Power of The Rosary.
The Rosary is the weapon for these times. ~ St. Padre Pio
Our Blessed Mother has said:
“…the Rosary is my Power…It is the weapon which you must make use of in these times of the Great Battle….” It is the chain with which she promises to bind Satan. “Every Rosary which you recite with me has the effect of restricting the action of the Evil One, of drawing souls away from his pernicious influence,” …” and of expanding goodness in my children.”
Our Lady has shown us that the Rosary can stop wars. In fact, Our Blessed Mother has said that, “we can do more in one day of intense prayer, than years of discussion.” Are we listening? Can we, her children, help Our Lady, mount a massive worldwide prayer and fasting campaign and include Masses of Reparation? Of course we can!
If we don’t deal with the arrogance and moral sins of mankind, especially sins of the flesh, many believe our days are numbered. Civilizations that have not repented from such moral decline have been destroyed by plagues, catastrophes, or wars – ie. the Roman Empire, the time of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah…. In the Old Testament, Ninevah was spared because they prayed, fasted and repented.
Our Blessed Mother has told us that prayer and fasting stops wars and natural catastrophes.
The Rosary as the Weapon for Peace
“Say the Rosary every day to obtain world peace and an end to war.” ~ Our Lady of Fatima, 5-13-1917
“Would you like me to tell you a ‘secret’? It is simple, and after all, is no secret: Pray, pray much. Say the Rosary every day.” ~ St. Pope John Paul the Great
“A world at prayer is a world at peace.” ~ Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C.
“The Rosary is the most beautiful and richest of all prayers to the Mediatrix of all grace; it is the prayer that touches most the heart of the Mother of God. Say it each day.” ~ Pope St. Pius X
“To turn the evil in America, a tithe of Rosaries should be offered to God. If 10% of Catholics in the United States would pledge to join the Rosary Crusade, satanic evil would be crushed in our nation.” ~ Father Albert Shamon
“Pray and let the Rosary always be in your hands as a sign to Satan that you belong to me.” ~ Our Lady to St. Simon Stock
