Do You Know That The Rosary Is a Key Weapon In The Fight Against Satan? The Story of Blessed Bartolo Longo

October is the month of the Rosary, one of the most potent weapons against the power of evil, as the life of Blessed Bartolo Longo — the Apostle of the Rosary, whose anniversary coincidentally falls this month — dramatically shows.

While much of contemporary Christianity has been reduced to moralistic, therapeutic Deism, Catholicism has retained its supernatural roots. The dangers of Devil worship, and the antidote to such poison, continues to be a Catholic preserve.

In other words, when someone needs an exorcist, they don’t call the Baptist pastor.

Have You Heard About The 7 – Decade Rosary Known As The “Franciscan Crown”?

Have You Heard About The 7 – Decade Rosary Known As The “Franciscan Crown”?

One unique devotions of the Franciscans is a seven-decade rosary known as the Franciscan Crown. While the traditional rosary known to most people consists of 5 decades which meditate on 15 mysteries (or 20 if you pray the Luminous mysteries) the 7-decade Franciscan Rosary, known as the The Franciscan Crown, is a Rosary consisting of seven decades with each decade describing a particular joy from the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

The story of the Rosary of the Seven Joys of the Blessed Virgin dates back to the early 15th century. A pious young man named James had been accustomed to adorning a beautiful statue of Mary with a crown of flowers, which he had picked and woven himself. He later entered the Franciscan Order, but either because of a lack of time or permission, he was no longer able to continue this devotion. Distraught because of this, he decided to abandon the religious life and return to the world.

Is Buying A Blessed Rosary Sinful?

Full Question

I have always liked old rosaries and have over the years bought many rosaries at various places. I have never re-sold any rosary I have bought, but the question of simony has come up in my conscience lately. Is it sinful for me to buy these, knowing that many of the old ones are most likely blessed?

Answer

The Catechism defines simony as the buying or selling of spiritual things (cf. CCC 2121). By your account, it is not your intention to buy a spiritual good (such as the graces using the rosary with the proper disposition can help us achieve) but only the rosary itself. This is not a sin. When you are ready to use them, you should have them blessed again.
