The Rosary floods the soul of those who recite it…

August 5 – Our Lady of the Snows – Pope Leo XIII wrote the liturgical text for the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary  

"The Rosary floods the soul of those who recite it…" 

Photogram of the 1896 film Sua Santitá papa Leone XIII,
the first time a Pope appeared on film.
Pope Leo XIII wrote many encyclicals on the Rosary: 
  • Encyclical Supremi apostolatus, September 1, 1883 
  • Encyclical Octobri mense, September 22, 1891 
  • Encyclical Laetitiae sanctae, September 8, 1893 
  • Encyclical Magnae dei Matris, September 7, 1892, in which we read:
"The Rosary floods the souls of those who devoutly recite it with a sweetness of piety that never grows weary, impresses and stirs them as though they were listening to the very voice of the Blessed Mother explaining the mysteries and conversing with them at length about their salvation."
