"The beads are there for the sake of the prayers, and the prayers are there for the sake of the Mysteries." (Maisie Ward, 1889-1975)
Some reasons to pray this way...
"It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that He must reign in the world." (St. Louis de Montfort, 1673-1716)
"Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world." (Our Lady of Fatima, 1917)
"The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we
live has given new efficacy in the recitation of the Holy
Rosary ... There is no problem I tell you, no matter how
difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the
Holy Rosary ... With the Holy Rosary, we will save
ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console
our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls." (Sister Lucia (1907-2005), one of the 3 child seers of Fatima, in a rare 1957 interview)
"A world at prayer is a world at peace." (Fr. Patrick Peyton, 1909-92)
"The Holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results." (Fr. St. Josemaria Escriva, 1902-75)
"There is no surer means of calling down God's blessings upon the family...than daily recitation of the Rosary." (Pius XII, Pope from 1939-58)
"How beautiful is the family that recites the Rosary every evening." (John Paul II, Pope from 1978-2005)
"The family that prays together, stays together." (Fr. Patrick Peyton, 1909-92)
"The Rosary, recited with meditation on the mysteries, brings about the following marvelous results: it gradually gives us a perfect knowledge of Jesus Christ; it purifies our souls, washing away sin; it gives us victory over all our enemies; it makes it easy for us to practise virtue; it sets us on fire with love of Our Blessed Lord; it enriches us with graces and merits; it supplies us with what is needed to pay all our debts to God and to our fellow men, and finally, it obtains all kinds of graces for us from Almighty God." (St. Louis de Montfort, 1673-1716)
"The Rosary is a treasure of graces." (Paul V, Pope from 1605-21)
"The Rosary is the scourge of the devil." (Adrian VI, Pope from 1522-23)
"The Rosary is THE WEAPON." (St. Padre Pio, 1887-1968)
