** THE 15 PROMISES OF OUR LADY TO CHRISTIANS WHO RECITE THE ROSARY
*]Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces. Why are we serving Mary? Do we not only serve God?
*]I promise My special protection and the greatest graces to all who shall recite the Rosary. How is it that Mary gives Graces? How does the church reconcile that all Graces come through Mary?
*]The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies. Why is the Rosary more special than a personal prayer to God?
*]It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
*]The soul which recommends itself to Me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish. Why would we give our souls to Mary? Or am I reading this wrong.
*]Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.
*]Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
*]Those who are faithful in reciting 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.
*]I shall deliver from purgatory, those who have been devoted to the Rosary. Mary shall deliver us? What gives her the Divine power to do so?
*]The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
*]You shall obtain all you ask of Me by the recitation of the Rosary. Again, how does reciting this Rosary over and over again differ from making your own prayers up?
*]All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by Me in their necessities.
*]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.
*]All who recite the Rosary are My sons, and brothers of My only son Jesus Christ.
*]Devotion to My Rosary is a great sign of pre-destination.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
