The promises of Our Lady of the Rosary (2)

Miracles of the Rosary

Here are the rest of the promises given by Our Lady to the Dominican Alanus de Rupe (Blessed Alain de la Roche), to all those who pray the Rosary:
  1. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  2. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
  3. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
  4. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
  5. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
  6. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
  7. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ.
  8. Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

The Fifteen Promises Granted to those who Recite the Rosary
The month of October, a month when we especially like to pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary, is traditionally called the Month of the Rosary. The holy Rosary is composed of twenty decades. Each decade is recited in honor of a mystery in the life of Christ and that of Our Lady. It is customary to recite five decades at a time while meditating on one set of mysteries. We usually pray one specific set on each day the week in the following way:

On Monday and Saturday we pray the Joyful MysteriesThe Annunciation, The Visitation, The Nativity, The Presentation of Jesus, and The Finding of Jesus in the Temple.
On Tuesday and Friday we pray the Sorrowful MysteriesThe Agony of Jesus, The Scourging, The Crowning with Thorns, The Carrying of the Cross, and The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus.
 - On Wednesday and Sunday we pray the Glorious MysteriesThe Resurrection, The Ascension, The Descent of the Holy Spirit, The Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and The Coronation of the Virgin Mary.
On Thursday we pray the Mysteries of LightThe Baptism of Jesus, The Wedding at Cana, The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God, The Transfiguration, and The Institution of the Holy Eucharist.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7th. This feast was instituted by Pope Pius V in 1573, to thank the Virgin Mary for the victory of Lepanto (1571).
