Next to the holy sacrifice of the Mass and Eucharistic Adoration,the Rosary is considered to be the most powerful prayer that exists on the earth. The church even grants a plenary indulgence to those who pray the Rosary in the presence of the Blessed Eucharist. Following are the 15 promises Our Lady pledged to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan de la Roche for all those who pray the Rosary.

The Fifteen Promises For All Those That Pray The Rosary
  • To all those who pray the Rosary devoutly, she promises her special protection and very great graces.
  • Those who persevere in the praying of the Rosary will receive some signal grace.
  • The Rosary will be very powerful armor against Hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin, and dispel heresy.
  • The Rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies; it will substitute in hearts love of God for love of the world, and elevate them to desire heavenly and eternal good. O, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means!
