Miracles of the Rosary

This is another Rosary post dedicated to talking about various miracles that have occurred due to the Rosary being said.

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

The Rosary has many miracles attached with its use.

Rosary Miracles:

I was researching Rosary miracles and found this site on a variety of Rosary miracles.

The first major Rosary miracle, and one of the most impressive, is the one that occurred at the Battle of Lepanto:

In 1571 the Christian army, after intense devotion with the Rosary, succeeded in one of the greatest naval victories in the Battle of Lepanto against the powerful Turks. The sixty-five thousand men prayed the Rosary for three hours. Finally, after these devotions, the men were given absolution (forgiveness of their sins). The Turks had nearly three times more troops. The winds were against the Christians and the conditions were poor, but after the devotions ended, the winds, at the very start of battle, aided the Christians to a colossal victory against the Turks. This was one of the greatest naval upsets in history, from this, the Turks never fully recovered and their threat in the Mediterranean Sea ended.

Following this victory, Pope Pius V established the Feast of Our Lady of Victories on October 7th. The name was later changed to its present form - the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort wrote: "The rosary is the most powerful weapon to touch the Heart of Jesus, Our Redeemer, who loves His Mother." There are many other miracles included one attributed to Hiroshima.

The reason why the Russians pulled out of Austria in 1948 is also attributed to the Rosary Campaign there where 1/10 of the population prayed the Rosary daily for the withdrawal; it came on May 13, 1955, the anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, when the Russians signed the accord to leave Austria, and no one was injured at all.

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.

Please ask your church to join the International Rosary March in October:

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.

I know miracles do happen by reciting the rosary but I find it hard to commit myself fully to saying the rosary. Please help pray 4 me as I urgently need the mother 4 life.
