The Rosary Pope Speaks

The Rosary Pope Speaks

During his 25 year papacy, Pope Leo XIII encouraged all Christians to pray the rosary every day because it was a key to personal holiness and a powerful weapon in combating evil. Here are a few quotes from his numerous writings on the rosary.

“The rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life. It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings. There is no more excellent way of praying.”

“The spirit of prayer and the practice of Christian life are best attained through the devotion of the rosary of Mary.”

“The rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, combining in a convenient and practical form an unexcelled form of prayer, an instrument well adapted to preserve the faith and an illustrious example of perfect virtue, should be often in the hands of the true Christian and be devoutly recited and meditated upon.”

“In places, families, and nations in which the rosary of Mary retains its ancient honor, the loss of faith through ignorance and vicious error need not be feared.”

“May Mary, the Mother of God and of men, herself the authoress and teacher of the rosary, procure for us its happy fulfillment.”

“A rosary a day keeps the devil away.”

For the Greater Glory of God,
Fr. Matt
