Our own devotion to the Mother of God not only benefits us but also helps our loved ones. If only the world knows the power of the rosary and the intercession of our Blessed Mother!

Don’t forget to pray the rosary every day…

The devout author of the book in honor of the most holy Rosary, entitled, The Secret of every Grace,” relates that St. Vincent Ferrer once said to a man dying in despair: “Why will you ruin yourself when Jesus Christ wishes to save you?” And he answered, that in spite of Christ he would be damned. The Saint replied: “And you, in spite of yourself, shall be saved.” He began to recite the Rosary with the persons of the house, and behold, the sick man asked to make his confession, made it weeping, and then died.

The same author also relates that a poor woman, who was buried by an earthquake under the ruins of a house, was found alive and uninjured, with her children in her arms, by some persons who were employed by a priest to remove the stones. When she was asked what devotion she had practiced, she said she had never failed to say the Rosary and visit a chapel of our Blessed Lady.

He also relates that another woman who led a wicked life because she thought it the only means by which she could gain a livelihood was counseled to recommend herself to Mary by saying the Rosary; she did so, and behold one night the Divine Mother appeared and said to her: “Quit your sinful life: as for your support, trust in me, and I will think of that.” The next morning she went to confession, and Mary Most Holy provided for her wants.
