5 Reasons The Rosary Is The Strongest Prayer According To St. Paul 

5 Reasons The Rosary Is The Strongest Prayer According To St. Paul 


5 Reasons The Rosary Is The Strongest Prayer According To St. Paul.

HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE THE LORD IS WITH YOU BLESSED ARE YOU AMONG WOMEN AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF YOUR WOUMB JESUS…

This are the direct words from God Himself that lead to the beginning of the salvation of mankind, this words was directed to the new arc (Blessed Virgin Mary) of the lords covenant (Jesus).

In his letter to the Hebrew, St. Paul said:

“The word of God is ALIVE AND ACTIVE shaper than any double edge sword; it PENETRATES through the BODY AND SOUL and unites the joint and marrow. It judges the intentions of the heart” (HEBREW 4:12).

With this fact from the bible, let us recall again that God’s direct words to Mary says: HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE THE LORD IS WITH YOU, BLESSED ARE YOU AMONG WOMEN AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF YOUR WOMB JESUS.

According to Hebrew 4:12, these words of God have the following Characteristics:

1. IT IS ALIVE AND ACTIVE: 

The Holy Rosary is not a vain prayer because it is the pronouncement of God’s words. The pronouncement of God’s word out of your tongue cannot be a vain pronouncement but rather it is the pronouncement of a living word.

2. SHARPER THAN ANY DOUBLE EDGE SWARD: 

Because it’s a living prayer it has the power to destroy even the greatest obstacle in our lives (If God wills it). This words of God (the Rosary) has the power to destroy even the strongest weapon of the Devil.

3. IT PENETRATES THROUGH THE BODY AND THE SOUL: 

This makes it clear that our body and soul is united to God’s words each time we say the Rosary. It is only by this divine connection between our body and soul to the living word of God that we can be united with God. Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me, we also know that Jesus is the living word of God Therefore, by our  pronouncement of the word of God in the Rosary, we are also calling on the living word who is Jesus to intercede for us to God.

4. IT PENETRATES THE JOINTS AND MARROW: 

This is a simple explanation to the healing power of the Rosary content. Jesus the living word being present in the Rosary heals our body (If God wills) of any sickness and disease.

5. IT JUDGES THE THOUGHTS OF THE HEART: 

Let us understand one thing from this, When we say the Rosary, the living word who we always pronounce from the Rosary is our judge. It’s not the Anti Catholic or the Protestant who judges you; it’s the living word in that Rosary that judges us. The bible says in Hebrew 4:12 that this living word judges the intentions of our heart; it does not judge you from the impression of an Anti Catholic or protestant. This truth can also be seen from 1 Samuel 16:7. The living word in the Rosary listens to the intentions of your heart and sends it to the father.

This leads us further to the second part of the Rosary.

MEDITATIONS OF THE ROSARY.

The Rosary is made up 15 mysteries, in these fifteen mysteries of the Rosary we are to meditate on the 33 years spent by the living word on Earth. While we pronounce the living word in the Rosary, we are as well meditating his whole 33 years on Earth. The pronouncement of the words of God in the Rosary and the meditation of the 33 years of the life of the living word makes up the Holy Rosary. To exclude any of this from the rosary is to pray the Rosary in a profane manner.

The Beginning Of Our Salvation History: All “In” Mary 

The Beginning Of Our Salvation History: All “In” Mary 

The beginning of our Salvation History: ALL IN MARY

🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 🌊

We must do our actions “in”: Mary. Thoroughly, to understand  this practice, we must know first that our Blessed Lady is the true terrestrial paradise of the NEW ADAM and that the ancient paradise was but a figure of her. There, then, in this earthly paradise, riches, beauties, rarities and inexplicable sweetness, which JESUS CHRIST, the NEW ADAM, has left there; it was in this paradise that HE took HIS complacence for nine months, worked HIS wonders and displayed HIS riches with the magnificence of a GOD. This most Holy Place is composed only of a Virginal and Immaculate earth, of which the NEW ADAM was formed and on which HE was nourished, without any spot or stain, by the operation of the HOLY GHOST, WHO dwelt there.

It is in this earthly paradise that there is the true tree of life, which has borne JESUS CHRIST, the FRUIT of LIFE and the tree of knowledge of good and Evil, which has given light unto the world. There are in this DIVINE place trees planted by the hand of GOD and watered by HIS DIVINE unction, which have borne and daily bear fruits of a DIVINE taste. There are flowerbeds adorned with beautiful and varied blossom of VIRTUES, diffusing odors which delight the very angels. There are meadows green with hope, impregnable tower of strength and the most charming houses of confidence.

It is only the HOLY GHOST WHO can make us know the hidden truth of these figures of material things. There is in this place an air of perfect purity; a fair sun, without shadow, of the DIVINITY, a fair day, without night, of the Scared Humanity; a continual burning furnace of love, where all  the iron that is cast into it is changed, by excessive heat, to gold.

There is a river of humility which springs from the earth and which, dividing itself into four branches, waters all that enchanted place; and these are the four cardinal virtues.

“True Devotion To Mary” By Saint Louis Marie De Montfort.

💐💧The Holy sanctuary of the DIVINITY, the repose of the MOST HOLY TRINITY, the throne of GOD, the city of GOD, the altar of GOD, the temple of GOD, the world of GOD — all these different epithets and encomiums are most substantially true with reference to the different marvels and graces which the MOST HIGH has wrought in Mary💧💐.

Mary Embellishes Our Prayers And Good Works, And Adorns Them With Her Own Merit, So As To Be Pleasing To God.

St. Louis Maria De Montfort said, “when we present everything to Jesus by ourselves, and replying on our own efforts and dispositions, Jesus examines the offering, and often rejects it because of the stains it has contracted through self love, just as He rejected the sacrifices of the Jews when they were full of their own will.” (Ish. 64).

Meanwhile, Jesus instructed us, “If you are going to offer your gift to God and remember that you have something against your brother, keep your gift, go and reconcile with your brother first, before you offer your gift to God.” Now, what does this mean?

It means that our offering must be pure and spotless (Rom. 12:1).

St. Montfort clears the air by saying; “we must remark that in as much as our good works pass through the hands of Mary, they receive an argumentation of Purity and consequently of merit and satisfactory value. On this account they become more capable of solacing the souls in Purgatory and of converting sinners than if they did not pass through the virginal and liberal hands of Mary.

It may be little (Just One Hail Mary) we give to our Lady, but if that little is given with charity, self will, and purity of intention, that little becomes very mighty to turn away God’s wrath and draw down His Mercy.”

The Efficacious Devotion Of The Three Hail Mary’s. 

The Efficacious Devotion Of The Three Hail Mary’s. 


The Efficacious Devotion of the Three Hail Marys.

One of the greatest means of salvation and one of the surest signs of predestination, is unquestionably, the devotion to the Most Blessed Virgin. All the holy doctors of the Church are unanimous in saying with St. Alphonsus of Liguori: “A devout servant of Mary shall never perish.” The chief thing is to persevere faithfully until death in this devotion.

Numerous examples show how agreeable the three Hail Marys Devotion is to the Divine Mother and what special graces it draws, during life and at the hour of death, on those who never omit it for a single day.

Many great saints have practiced and recommended the devotion of the “Three Hail Mary”. Here are the names of but a few of them: St. Leonard of Port Maurice, St. Bruno, St. Bonaventure, St. John Berchmans, St. John Baptist Mary Vianney (Cure of Ars), St. Anthony of Lisbon and of Padua, St. Stanislaus Kostka, St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort, St. John Joseph of the Cross, St. John Baptist de Rossi, St. Gerard Majella, St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, Blessed Marcellinus Champagnat, and, above all, the great Marian doctor St. Alphonsus Liguori who, in his writings recommended this devotion about twenty times.

This practice was revealed to St. Melchtilde while she was beseeching Our Blessed Mother to assist her in her hour of death. Our Lady appeared to her and said:

“I will, certainly. But I also want you to say three special Hail Marys to me every day: 

The first Hail Mary will be in honor of God the Father, Whose omnipotence raised my soul so high above every other creature that after God I have the greatest power in heaven and on earth. In the hour of your death I will use that power of God the Father to keep any hostile power far from you”.

“The second Hail Mary will be said in honor of the Son of God Who communicated His inscrutable wisdom to me. In the hour of your death I will fill your soul with the light of that wisdom so that all the darkness of ignorance and error will be dispelled.”

“The third Hail Mary will be in honor of God the Holy Ghost Who filled my soul with the sweetness of His love and tenderness and mercy. In your last hour I will then change the bitterness of death into divine sweetness and delight.”

Our Blessed Mother also revealed to St. Gertrude the Great: “To any soul who faithfully prays the Three Hail Marys, I will appear at the hour of death in a splendor so extraordinary that it will fill the soul with heavenly consolation.”

St. Leonard of Port Maurice, the celebrated missionary, had the Three Hail Marys recited morning and evening in honor of Mary Immaculate, to obtain the grace of avoiding all mortal sins during the day or night, moreover he promised in a special manner eternal salvation to all those who proved constantly faithful to this practice. He gave this devotion of Three Hail Marys as a penance in the confessional, especially for those who were struggling with sins of impurity.

“Astonishing conversions, increase in virtues, cure of the sick, temptations conquered, business difficulties solved, holy death, and salvation”.

The promise made by the Blessed Virgin to St. Mechtilde.

The “Three Hail Marys”, are in the words of StAlphonsus Maria Liquori: “the best safeguard for chastity”.

This statement was recorded and attributed to St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori by St. Pius X: that it is true, has been confirmed by our experiences as well as those of many missionaries” (according to Frassinetti). Even the number of graces and favors obtained through the practice of this devotion show us just how pleasing it is to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Here is the personal testimony of a sinner who used the devotion with good results: 

“For the last three years, I have been the slave of a bad habit against the virtue of purity. How could I get rid of this terrible passion? I tried every means available, but all proved useless. I used to give in to very serious sins and even to sacrileges. This was most disheartening. Then, one day, someone recommended to me the devotion of the “Three Hail Marys”. And now, it is not yet quite one month since I started to pray the “Three Hail Marys” every morning and every night without fail. I cannot explain what has happened within me, but I do know and can assure you that, since the very first moment, it has produced wonderful results within me. I have not succumbed to the impure temptations since then. When I have been weak and just about ready to succumb, something or another has happened which has stopped me from giving in, and indeed, I do know that it was something stronger than my desire of sinning.”

According to St. Gertrude (12561301), the Blessed Virgin Mary promised the following: 

“To any soul who faithfully prays the Three Hail Marys, I will appear at the hour of death in a splendor of beauty so extraordinary that it will fill the soul with Heavenly consolation.”

Later on, St. Leonard of Port Mauricehad the three Ave Marias recited morning and evening in honor of Mary Immaculate, to obtain the grace of avoiding all mortal sins during the day or and night, moreover, he promised in a special manner eternal salvation to all those who proved constantly faithful to this practice.

St. Alphonsus Liguori (16961787) adopted this pious practice and highly recommended it. He told parents to train their children to acquire the habit of saying three Hail Marys in the morning and evening. After each Hail Mary, he advice that the following prayer be said“By thy Immaculate Conception, O Mary, make my body pure and my soul holy.”

According to the St. Martha Catholic Church of the Pallottine Fathers, after Night Prayers: “Many Saints have had the practice of adding threeHail Marys” here in honor of Mary’s purity for the grace of a chaste and holy life.”  Thus, it has been recommended as a daily practice for people who have received confirmation that they pray the Three Hail Marys for purity of mind, heart and body” after examination of conscience.

PracticeRecite morning and evening, three Hail Marys in honor of the three great privileges bestowed upon Our Blessed Mother by the most Blessed Trinity with this invocation at the end: for the morning: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this day.” For the evening: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this night.”

(StPope Pius X gave his Apostolic Blessings to this practice and the devotion was raised to an Archconfraternity by Pope Benedict XV).
