The Holy Rosary

T he word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the most important one. The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It's a simple prayer, humble so much like Mary. It's a prayer we can all say together with Her, the Mother of God. With the Hail Mary we invite Her to pray for us. Our Lady always grants our request. She joins Her prayer to ours. Therefore it becomes ever more useful, because what Mary asks She always receives, Jesus can never say no to whatever His Mother asks for. In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary as a powerful weapon against evil, to bring us to true peace. With your prayer made together with Your heavenly Mother, you can obtain the great gift of bringing about a change of hearts and conversion. Each day, through prayer you can drive away from yourselves and from your homeland many dangers and many evils.
It can seem a repetitive prayer but instead it is like two sweethearts who many times say one another the words: "I love you"... 

The 15 Promises of Our Lady to Christians who Pray the Rosary

The Glorious Mystery
The Joyful Mystery

The Luminous Mystery

The Sorrowful Mystery

On the Most Holy Rosary...

"Say the Rosary every day to obtain world peace and an end to war."
-Our Lady of Fatima, May 13, 1917

"Someday the world will be saved by the Rosary and scapular."
-Our Lady to Saint Simon Stock

"If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins 'you shall receive a never-fading crown of glory.' Even if you are on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil as sorcerers do who practice black magic, and even if you are a heretic as obstinate as a devil, sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and will save your soul, if-- and mark well what I say-- if you say the Holy Rosary devoutly every day until death for the purpose of knowing the truth and obtaining contrition and pardon for your sins."
-Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, The Secret of the Rosary

“There is another related in the Chronicles of St. Dominic. Near Carcassonne, where St. Dominic was preaching the Rosary, there was an unfortunate heretic who was possessed by a multitude of devils. These evil spirits to their confusion were compelled at the command of our Lady to confess many great and consoling truths concerning devotion to her. They did this so clearly and forcibly that, however weak our devotion to our Lady may be, we cannot read this authentic story containing such an unwilling tribute paid by the devils to devotion to our Lady without shedding tears of joy.”
-Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, The Secret of the Rosary

“They will have the two-edged sword of the word of God in their mouths and the blood-stained standard of the Cross on their shoulders. They will carry the crucifix in their right hand and the rosary in their left, and the holy names of Jesus and Mary on their heart. The simplicity and self-sacrifice of Jesus will be reflected in their whole behaviour.”
-Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, speaking of the great Saints of the end times

"The Rosary is the 'weapon' for these times."
-Saint Padre Pio

"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 Saint Pius X

"Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world."
-Blessed Pope Pius IX

"Just as by the recitation of the Divine Office, priests offer a public, constant, and most efficacious supplication; so the supplication offered by the members of this Sodality in the recitation of the Rosary, or 'Psalter of Our Lady'."
-Pope Leo XIII, Augustissimae Virginis Mariae

“To all those, therefore, who shall have assisted on the prescribed days at the public recital of the Rosary, and have prayed for Our intentions -- to all those also who from legitimate causes shall have been compelled to do so in private -- We grant for each occasion an Indulgence of seven years and seven times forty days.”
–Pope Leo XIII, Superiure Anno

“Among the various supplications with which we successfully appeal to the Virgin Mother of God, the Holy Rosary without doubt occupies a special and distinct place. This prayer, which some call the Psalter of the Virgin or Breviary of the Gospel and of Christian life, was described and recommended by Our Predecessor of happy memory, Leo XIII”
-Pope Pius XI

"The Holy Rosary is the storehouse of countless blessings."
-Blessed Alan de la Roche

"The entire Rosary has the beauty of reproducing the theological thoughts concerning Mary, they are reproduced in the entire dialectic of truth and deduction. Marian theology and the Rosary are two poems that are united into one, two hymns forming one hymn, two magnificent temples, two cathedrals of thought and piety, that come together as one... Here in the Rosary, piety speaks in the language of theologians. Here meditation rises to the heights attained by scholars. Here prayer dwells where the scholars are brought to a halt. Marian theology and the Rosary are therefore similar to two temples having at the same height their pinnacles and spires. The people of God in the Church have found the Rosary, its Book of Psalms. The clergy have the Divine Office, the people have the Rosary. Like The Divine Comedy, the Rosary is a trilogy: it recall the joys, sorrows, and triumphs of Jesus and in perfect symmetry, for each part it has five chants, and each chant in turn is an episode. The Rosary could very well be called the poem of human redemption. The Rosary is a poem that takes its lively but simplistic hues from the pure palette of the Gospel; while at the same time it draws its logical ties, its harmonious responses, its entire intimate dialectic from the highest theology."
-Blessed Bartolo Longo

"There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary."
-Sister Lucia, of the seers of Fatima
'If our age in its pride laughs at and rejects Our Lady's Rosary, a countless legion of the most saintly men of every age and of every condition have not only held it most dear and have most piously recited it but have also used it at all times as a most powerful weapon to overcome the devil, to preserve the purity of their lives, to acquire virtue more zealously, in a word, to promote peace among men.' -- Pope Pius XI

SEX For Sale...Right On Your Radios and TV (The Music Industry Exposed)

   Hundred of e-mails flooded my inbox when I last opened my Yahoomail Account. The reason why? Because I publicly hate Lady Gaga and Katy Perry! Let me clarify that I do not hate them for what they are, but for what they do. I am not a saint. God knows all the things I keep hidden from you guys. If I know that I am the worst sinner, God knows worse than that!
   St. John Bosco, if I'm not mistaken have once said, "Hate the sins, but love the sinner." Personally, I pray for the enlightenment of the two artists I have mentioned above. God wants every single soul to be saved, so do we. But for evil to continue, let the good remain silent. I am writing this for the many people who do not realize the evil of what their idols (with pun intended!) are promoting.
   I do not want to discuss the connections of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga with the Illuminati on this post. I do not want to tackle about their being Satan's worshipers. What I want to discuss is simple: these kinds of artists sell sex on their music. We have been deceived that impurity is just normal, that nothing's wrong with it. And more than Satanic initiation, this is the first message that most of our main stream music artists convey.
  Who would have thought this way, anyway? From billboards to tabloids, from radio to television and internet; we have become used to so much promiscuity that it has lost its sense of sin already. Sex nowadays is just plain ordinary, part of every day's life. We do not realize that these sins of impurity like masturbation, impure thoughts, obscene language, watching promiscuous (lustful) shows (which by the way music videos are one and the same thing) are deadly sins. These would bring our souls to Hell if we continue our lustful lifestyle.
   By watching Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, we pick up the subliminal message that impurity is normal and right. We bring these messages unconsciously to our mind, and when the day ends we do not understand why we are bothered by so much lust and begin doing the message we have received.
   Consider these following examples:
"If You Seek Amy by Britney Spears" - Britney actually tells us , "***K ME"!
"Poker Face by Lady Gaga" - The term "poker face" means the facial expression Gaga gives every time she and her boyfriend commit sodomy.
"I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It by Katy Perry" - Doesn't need an interpretation!
   These are just few of thousands of direct and subliminal sex messages across the world through the means of music. "Yeah right", this could be your answer but try to think, why do you not want to accept? Is it because we have been influenced by the message too that impurity and things to do with sex are just plain ordinary?
   No wonder why our world is in chaos. Unless people goes back to what is truth, beautiful and good; peace and order is impossible. Quoting St. John Bosco again, "Purity is holiness and holiness is purity", purity and holiness are both indispensable to build a truly peaceful world but how can we achieve this if we are programmed by the music we listen to everyday?

Marianizing the World!

   The political expeditions of the Old World has ended centuries ago. Along with the intentions of expanding the power and territories of a colonialist country was the goal to Christianize the world and every person living on it. Fierce wars were fought for religion and despite of the intentions to bring the kingdom of God on earth, innocent people have suffered.
   Today, we have to fight the same battle. We have to win the world for Our Savior, Jesus Christ but in a different way. We have been deceived that our enemy were the Moslems, the Protestants and the other non-Christian believers. We have forgotten and we are forgetting that if we have an enemy, it is no other than Satan and his cohorts.
   Since the time of our first parents, Adam and Eve, Satan had waged a perpetual battle against us humans. Against our souls. He wants as many souls as possible to hurt and mock God.
   We have to fight for God, to fight for our salvation. Like the brave Christian soldiers of long ago, we are in this crusade against the power of darkness. Our goal is to recapture the hearts of men especially the youth which Satan possess in order to snatch our souls away from the love of God.
   This battle is spiritual. This war is more dangerous than any of the wars of this world. This is an endless battle as long as we are breathing. As human as we are, we can not defeat our enemy. If this battle is in spiritual realms, we need to use our spiritual ammunitions: prayers, penance, the Sacraments and our sacramentals. But more than this, a special protection is needed, and who else can assure us of that except the anti-thesis of Satan, Our Blessed Mother!
   She is the Woman whom God has promised to crush the head of the Ancient Serpent. The Immaculate Virgin who has never been under Satan's sting. She alone can win this battle. Let us join Her as we wage this war against our enemy.
Our Lady under the title, "Help of Christians" is our patroness for this Crusade.
   In order to Christianize this world, we have to Marianize it first. Whoever finds Mary, finds life, finds the LIFE itself. Let us be one with Her in this battle, and this blog will serve as our communication to each other.
