Pray the Rosary

Rosary, was one of the requests of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in 1917, which she asked three children in Fatima. Two other requests were penance and devotion to her Immaculate Heart.
Our Lady of Fatima asked them: "Pray much and make sacrifaces for sinners. Pray the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world." She asks also us, to pray the rosary for the conversion of sinners and for the peace.

Mother Alphonse Marie [MAM], long before the revelation of the Virgin Mary, recommended the recitation of the Rosary as a salvation for sinners and as a protection against falling into sin. Therefore, we prove our love for Mary through prayer, and particularly through praying the rosary. MAM was amazed: “How many graces one receives through the rosary! At each Hail Mary, we greet her with a double greeting, and receive a jewel in our crown each time. Pray continually for peace and for the conversion of sinners and recommend them, in a particular way, to the beloved Mother of God. Your prayers will be heard.”

In order to honor the Blessed Virgin, Mary worthily, we pray with purity of heart and pay attention to the words with which we greet the Blessed Virgin. We turn to her in longer prayers like the rosary, as well as in shorter prayers like: Hail, Mary of Mercy… O Mary, do not leave us… Mary, help us in life and death… Hail, Queen of Mercy… Mary, accept us as your children and protect us… O Mary, with every beat of our heart we want to come closer to you.

According to MAM, the Blessed Virgin has a role as an intercessor. She intercedes for those who turn to her and obtains graces for them from her Divine Son or from the Father. She prays for those who are recommended to her by Christians who trust in her.“The hour of grace will come for the souls that you want to save; your prayers, your sighs of love, will obtain this grace from Jesus and Mary.”

“Place all your confidence in the divine mercy and only and exclusively in the merits of Jesus Christ, our Divine Redeemer. Despite our ingratitude toward Him, God pursues us with His grace and manifests His mercy to us ever more and more. When a soul turns to Mary with childlike confidence, she will never be repulsed. Mary is too good; she cannot act otherwise, she can refuse nothing; her love is too great.”

Let us pray with the Holy Father, Francis, for peace:

Lord Jesus, we adore your cross
which frees us from sin, the origin of every division and evil; we proclaim your resurrection, which ransoms man from the slavery of failure and death; we await your coming in glory, which will bring to fulfillment your kingdom of justice, joy and peace.

Lord Jesus, by your glorious passion,
conquer the hardness of our hearts, imprisoned by hatred and selfishness; by the power of your resurrection, save the victims of injustice and maltreatment from their suffering; by the fidelity of your coming,
confound the culture of death and make the triumph of life shine forth.

Lord Jesus,
unite to your cross the sufferings of the many innocent victims:
the children, the elderly, and the persecuted Christians;
envelop in paschal light those who are deeply wounded:
abused persons, deprived of freedom and dignity;
let those who live in uncertainty experience the enduring constancy of your kingdom: the exiles, refugees, and those who have lost the joy of living.

Lord Jesus,
cast forth the shadow of your cross over peoples at war;
may they learn the way of reconciliation, dialogue and forgiveness; let the peoples so wearied by bombing experience the joy of your resurrection:
raise up Iraq and Syria from devastation;
reunite your dispersed children under your gentle kingship: sustain Christians in the Diaspora and grant them the unity of faith and love.

O Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace,
you who stood at the foot of the cross,
obtain from your Son pardon for our sins;
you who never doubted the victory of his resurrection,
sustain our faith and our hope;
you who are enthroned as Queen in glory,
teach us the royal road of service and the glory of love. Amen.
