In your moment of great need, pray the Rosary!
Discover what happened to a needy family who
prayed the Rosary on a freezing winter night in Ohio...
It happened on a freezing night in Ohio.
See, the family only had enough coal to last them until dawn.
Little Mary, huddled with her parents and eight siblings, wondered if the coal truck would come in the morning. But there was no guarantee.
So the family decided to say a Rosary and ask for heavenly help.
As they finished, they heard the rumble of the coal truck outside and Mary’s Dad ran out to help unload. When he came back in, he commented to his wife and said, “funny, I never saw that delivery man before.”
But the family was now safe and warm. So nobody really stopped to think about the delivery man.
But things changed the next morning when another coal delivery truck arrived.
This time it was Mary’s Mom who went out to tell the driver that they had a delivery the night before.
The driver, her cousin, chuckled, and said, “I’m the only coal man in the area…If you got a load last night, St. Joseph must have brought it!”
Mary’s family never did discover who the delivery man was, nor did they ever get a bill. But they did learn one thing:
The Rosary is powerful! And today more than ever.
Sister Lucia, the eldest seer of Fatima, said that in these times the Blessed Mother has granted even greater power to the Rosary.
She said, “there is no problem, however difficult, whether temporal or spiritual; no problem in the life of families, Religious Communities, or the life of nations, that cannot be solved by the Rosary.”
Dear friend, for the feast of the Holy Rosary, October 7, you can get a precious booklet on how to pray the Rosary. For each Mystery, there’s a matching set of images and meditations that will keep you from getting distracted while you pray.
Yes, October 7 is a great feast day.
On October 7, 1571, a Catholic League formed by Pope Saint Pius V broke the power of Islam in the Mediterranean, in the naval battle of Lepanto, off the coast of Greece.
In preparation for the mighty and decisive clash, in Rome, the Pope organized Rosary processions among the faithful.
In a vision, St. Pius was shown the moment of the Catholic victory, and in thanksgiving, he instituted October 7 as the feast of the Holy Rosary.
Sister Lucia was right.
There is no problem whether in the life of families or nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary.
Do you need the power of the Rosary in your life?
