Find the 7 benefits below the picture of St. Louis.

St. Louis de Montfort (1673-1716), called the 'Apostle of Mary', cautions both the ignorant and learned who consider the Rosary to be of little importance: 'The Rosary is a priceless treasure which is inspired by God'.

In his book, The Secret of the Rosary (page 65), De Montfort testifies that "the Rosary, recited with meditation on the mysteries, brings about the following marvelous results:

1. it gradually gives us a perfect knowledge of Jesus Christ;

2. it purifies our souls, washing away sin;

3. it gives us victory over all our enemies;

4. it makes it easy for us to practise virtue;

5. it sets us on fire with love of Our Blessed Lord;

6. it enriches us with graces and merits;

7. 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.

Blessed is the Rosary which gives us this...knowledge of our Blessed Lord through our meditations on His life, death, passion and glory."
