The Rosary is an incredibly amazing prayer. Let’s listen to what several saints have said about this spiritual weapon:
“The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at heart a Christocentric prayer. In the sobriety of its elements, it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety, of which it can be said to be a compendium. It is an echo of the prayer of Mary, her perennial Magnificat for the work of the redemptive Incarnation which began in her virginal womb. With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love” (Pope St. John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae).
“Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother” (St. Padre Pio).
“The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description” (Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen).
“How beautiful is the family that recites the Rosary every evening!” (Pope St. John Paul II).
“The Rosary is a priceless treasure inspired by God” (St. Louis de Montfort).
