Miracles of the Rosary
edit_button


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

The Rosary goes back to the very first centuries when the early Christians recited the 150 consecutive Hail Mary's to the Blessed Virgin, though it was done without the beads that we use today. This devotion was known in the early Church as the 150 psalms to Jesus and Mary, prefigured by the 150 Psalms of the Old Testament.

In 1214 the Blessed Virgin actually appeared to St. Dominic in his chapel and handed him the beads of the Rosary with the commission that he spread this age-old devotion throughout the world. Through the power of the Rosary he went about preaching and converting thousands everywhere, as he cast out devils, cured the sick, and even raised the dead to life on three occasions. And to think that we have these pearls of grace at our disposal today. With the Rosary we hold the power of God in our hands.

No Catholic should be ignorant of the Rosary. While not required under penalty of sin, all Catholics should nevertheless make it a part of their routine to offer at least five decades of the Holy Rosary every single day, as our Blessed Mother requested in 1917. This request was accompanied by miracles as further proof of their supernatural origin.

Some of the many Rosary miracles include:

  1. The Miracle during the Battle of Lepanto
  2. The Rosary Miracle at Hiroshima
  3. The Miracle of the Sun
  4. The Expelling of the Soviets from Austria

Sorry moneybags but a 3-1 disadvantage was nothing back then because the christians had the best armies in the world at the time.

It still was a miracle none the less. The other examples were also miracles of God's saving power.

The greatest miracle of the Rosary is the miracle of hope--hope which can conquer all things.

And with the Lord all things are clearly possible. In my other post on the Rosary I stated the 15 promises of Mary to those who recite the Rosary, those are reasons enough to recite it.

Do we have to stick just with recognized miracles? or can we talk about how it's effect on our daily lives?

When I get seriously stressed or need to make a hard decision I "take a rosary break" and I always feel so much better and think clearly again.

God Bless

No, we don't have to stick only with recognized miracles. Those are just a starting point.

We pray for the Pope to consecrate Russia (with all the Bishops in the world) to Her Immaculate Heart as Our Lady of Fatima requested.
