I believe that despite all of my sins, unworthiness of God’s love and wretchedness that God will have mercy and compassion on me, but I also believe that I’m a work in progress. I felt much better after I went to Eucharistic Adoration yesterday and found a book written by St. Louis De Montfort called “The Secret Of The Rosary”.
If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins “you shall receive a never fading crown of glory.” Even if you are on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil as sorcerers do who practice black magic, and even if you are a heretic as obstinate as a devil, sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and save your soul, if-and mark well what I say- if you say the Holy Rosary devoutly every day until death for the purpose of knowing the truth and obtaining contrition and pardon for your sins.
**St. Louis De Montfort
The Secret Of The Rosary **
“Those who say it fervently and frequently will gradually grow in grace and holiness and will enjoy the special protection of Our Lady and the abiding friendship of God. No one can live continually in sin and continue to say the Rosary. Either he will give up sin or he will give up the Rosary.”
Bishop Hugh Boyle
After reading all of that and many more excerpts from that book, all I could do is give God thanks and praise for such a powerful weapon, and for such a beautiful,loving and protective Mother.
