Elvis Presley Sings the Most Beautiful Song, “Miracle of the Rosary”…

“Realize the power in your hand with the Rosary, for in your hands you hold the power of God.  If you do not recognize the Rosary, can you expect to be recognized by My Son?  How much can you expect?  Why do you hide My Rosary?  It was with a Mother’s loving heart that I chose to give you these pearls of Heaven that you reject.     “Woe to all dedicated who seek to remove these from the little ones’ hands, for their punishment will be metered in accordance to it!” – Our Lady of the Roses, 10-6-70

Miracle Of The Rosary….Lyrics: (Words & music by L. Deanson)

Oh Blessed Mother we pray to Thee Thanks for the Miracle of your Rosary Only you can hold back Your Holy Son’s hand Long enough for the whole world to understand

Hail, Mary full of grace The Lord is with thee Blessed are thou among women And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus

Oh Holy Mary dear Mother of God Please pray for us sinners Now and at the hour of our death

And give thanks once again For the Miracle of your Rosary

Editor’s Comment:  Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century.  Elvis died on August 16, 1977 within the Octave of the Assumption of Our Lady.  Anyone who dies within the Octave (8 days) of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven or the Ascension of Our Lord to Heaven, will not go to Hell.  They may send their time in Purgatory until the end of time and then go to Heaven.  I personally feel that God granted Elvis this grace because of the Miracle of the Rosary.

 The origin of the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary on October 7th …

Following the great Christian victory at Lepanto, Pope St. Pius V declared that henceforth a commemoration of the Rosary would be a part of the Vatican’s Mass on every October 7.  His successor, Pope Gregory XIII, went further. In 1573 he established the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary–to be celebrated at all Churches which had specific altars dedicated to the Rosary. 

In 1671 Pope Clement X extended observance of the feast to all of Spain.

Only 12 years later in 1683 the Muslims again swept into Europe. With 200,000 men, they laid siege to Vienna. After months of valiant resistance by a small garrison, the city was relieved by an army under John Sobieski, King of Poland. The Rosary, to which the King was dedicated, was again instrumental in a military victory. Pope Innocent XI consecrated September 12 of that year to the Holy Name of Mary. The Moslem hordes were hurled back yet again at Peterwardein in Hungary by Prince Eugene on the Feast of Out Lady of the Snows, August 5, 1716. As a result of this victory, Pope Clement XI extended the Feast of the Rosary to the Universal Church.

“The beads of prayer will be the major instrument for the lessening of the Chastisement upon your country.” Our Lady of the Roses, April 14, 1973

Our Lady of the Roses Awesome Bayside Prophecies… http://www.tldm.org/Bayside/  These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.

POWER OF THE ROSARY… “Realize the power in your hand with the Rosary, for in your hands you hold the power of God. If you do not recognize the Rosary, can you expect to be recognized by My Son? How much can you expect? Why do you hide My Rosary? It was with a Mother’s loving heart that I chose to give you these pearls of Heaven that you reject.     “Woe to all dedicated who seek to remove these from the little ones’ hands, for their punishment will be metered in accordance to it!     “Why has sophisticated man cast aside these tokens of My love? Those who remain true to My Rosary will not be touched by the fires. Gather these treasures, My children, for the time will come that you will not find them on the counters of your stores.” – Our Lady, October 6, 1970

GOLD “With the extension of the Rosary, many shall now receive the power through the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, to bring health of body and health of spirit to each soul.     “You will find that your Rosary beads shall turn color again. The stems will become pure gold. So do not cast aside your Rosary, thinking falsely, as satan would whisper into your ear that they’re not good anymore and must be thrown away. That you will understand, that every Rosary that has been blessed by the presence of the Mother of God, Jesus, and the Eternal Father in the Holy Ghost, know that these Rosaries are very powerful. So you will keep them with you always, for they will have the power for cure and for conversion – cure of the ailing body and conversion of the sickened soul.” – Our Lady, June 18, 1984

15 DECADES “My children, you will all pray your Rosary daily, even if it means to stop the work you are doing. You will excuse yourself and retire to a quiet place in your office threshold. The Rosary must be said at least once a day, the fifteen decades.” – Jesus, June 18, 1984

SAVED “All who pray the Rosary and wear My Scapular shall be saved.” – Jesus, June 18, 1984

MAKE ROSARIES “I ask that the world continues to make Rosaries, and send the prayers, link to link throughout the world. For I still promise that if you will listen to My directions, given through My Son, in the Father and the Holy Spirit – I promise to do all that I can, My children, to save your lives upon earth; and also, if you must come across the veil, to save you from eternal damnation through the Scapular and the Rosary.” – Our Lady, October 5, 1985

“And I come allowing My Mother first to precede Me, because it is Her day of birth upon earth, and I have great love for My Mother.” Jesus, Sept. 7,1985

“Better that a man has died in the womb of his mother than to disgrace and to bring discredit to My Mother.” (Jesus, 11-22-75)

“Man can defame Me very easily but I will not allow him to defame My Mother.” (Jesus, 6-18-93)

“All who have closed their hearts to My Mother’s message will be brought down to their knees in shock! ” (Jesus, 2-1-75)

“I shall not stand by and allow My Mother to be debauched and defamed. I will take action, great action, against the theater where this picture (the “Hail Mary” film) shall be shown.” (Jesus, 10-5-85)

“In the past many saints were sent to you to prepare you and warn you of these present days that you live in.  But who took heed of their counsel?  And now My Mother wanders upon earth, and who takes heed of Her counsel? How long do you think I shall stand by and allow you to defame Her?  I shall not much longer allow My Mother to be victimized by you.” (Jesus, 7-25-79)

“Harken to my words, O men of sin! You shall not defile or defame the Mother of God, the woman of virtue and purity whom you seek to dethrone in her place among you! Vengeance, the saints cry out for vengeance! How long will you survive the Ball of Redemption!”  (St. Michael, 9-7-74)

“It is to your advantage to listen and act upon My counsel, or you will cry bitter tears of regret when it is too late!” (Our Lady of the Roses, 9-13-77)

“All scoffers will learn too late that the Mission from Heaven was urgent and sorely needed, for the numbers of sin, those children in sin, are counted now not in the few but in the multitudes, falling fast into hell.” (Our Lady of the Roses,  7-1-85)

“Great elemental tragedies, disasters, manmade and God-sent upon mankind, shall increase in volume, shall increase in intensity and numbers.” (Jesus, 5-26-79)

“Your seasons shall turn. Upheavals of nature shall be more prevalent. They will increase in intensity until mankind is brought to his knees.” (Our Lady of the Roses, 2-1-78)

“O My child and My children, how many disasters must come upon your country and the countries of the world before the peoples will become awakened to the reality of a very angry God?”  (Jesus, May 21, 1983)

“You will not stop the words of My Mother. She is your Co-Redemptrix, and as such, it is She Who has been given the mission to bring you back onto the road to the Kingdom. Without Her you will be lost.” – Jesus, August 5, 1974

“I will put enmities between thee (Satan) and the woman (Virgin Mary), and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.” Gen 3:15 DRB

“Those who have heckled and doubted shall be put to shame and confusion. For nothing remains hidden in the darkness, but must come forward into the light to be exposed at a certain time.” (Our Lady of the Roses, 10-6-80)

“Awaken now from your slumber and seek your return from your course of destruction by getting down upon your knees and praying in heartfelt, sincere prayer to the Eternal Father, to guide you back from your present road of destruction.     “Your countrymen have sought to silence the voice of My Mother throughout your world. You will not continue to silence the voice-boxes throughout the world, for you are sowing the seeds of your own destruction!     “Amen, amen, I say to you: unless mankind returns God the Eternal Father to his life, he will not have the years of two hands to count upon!     “The present generation, My child, shall pass through this crucible of suffering.  Many great saints shall rise from this persecution.”  (Jesus, June 5, 1975)

The Rosary Holds the Power of God…     “I want a string of Rosaries across your land, from coast to coast, a solid chain to keep out the enemy, a solid chain of protection. Unite in prayer to keep out the enemy.      “Realize the power in your hand with the Rosary, for in your hands you hold the power of God. If you do not recognize the Rosary, can you expect to be recognized by My Son? How much can you expect? Why do you hide My Rosary? It was with a Mother’s loving heart that I chose to give you these pearls of Heaven that you reject.       “Why has sophisticated man cast aside these tokens of My love? Those who remain true to My Rosary will not be touched by the fires. Gather these treasures, My children, for the time will come that you will not find them on the counters of your stores.      “Pray your Rosary slowly, My children, not with your lips but with your heart.” – Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers, October 6, 1970

“My Son has planned many surprises, pleasurable surprises, for Our children on earth who are working with Us to outwit the enemy of God. Do not be surprised when you are visited by many personages from the Kingdom. This will be truly the age of revelation to many. I say this to you, My children, with great joy of heart, for the many tribulations ahead shall prove you and test you for your entrance into the Kingdom. – Our Lady, – December 31, 1972

PSALM 1*

True Happiness in God’s Law

I

1Blessed is the man who does not walk

in the counsel of the wicked,

Nor stand in the way* of sinners,

nor sit in company with scoffers.a

2Rather, the law of the LORD* is his joy;

and on his law he meditates day and night.b

3He is like a treec

planted near streams of water,

that yields its fruit in season;

Its leaves never wither;

whatever he does prospers.

II

4But not so are the wicked,* not so!

They are like chaff driven by the wind.d

5Therefore the wicked will not arise at the judgment,

nor will sinners in the assembly of the just.

6Because the LORD knows the way of the just,e

but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.

A psalter—not salter—is a book that contains the 150 Psalms. Before printing was invented, books were fabulously expensive. Most of the world was illiterate and poor, and poor men did not own books. Often only monastic communities and churches had books. The book of the Psalms was used for the daily recitation of prayers (something that continues today).

The common folk wanted to pray daily like the monks but had no books to read the psalms from. Not up to memorizing all 150 Psalms, they recited an Our Father or Hail Mary in the place of each psalm.

They strung 150 beads together, one for each psalm, so they could keep count. Other prayers and meditations were added to this beaded string of 15 decades, until we arrived at the rosary we have today.

                       The Rosary’s History

Our Lady of the Rosary

The rosary was originally called the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary because Our Lady is venerated by the angelic greeting (the Hail Mary) repeated one hundred fifty times, corresponding to the number of the Davidic Psalter, and by the Lord’s Prayer before each decade. Superimposed on these prayers are certain meditations showing forth the entire life of Our Lord Jesus Christ, thus completing the method of prayer devised by the Fathers of the Holy Roman Church. In this we see that the rosary actually has its origin partly in the Divine Office, the official prayer of the Church, in which all 150 Psalms are recited/chanted in the course of each week.

The 150 Davidic Psalms (the Psalter of David) have always been prayed by Old Testament Israel, by post-Temple Jews, and by Christians for personal prayer, communal prayer, lamentations, praise, thanksgiving, and, in the case of Christians, to demonstrate the fulfillment of prophecy. They came to form a large part of the Divine Office sung at the various canonical hours by religious. Lay people who did not have copies of Scripture or the Breviary and lay people and religious who were illiterate would substitute 150 Pater Noster’s (Our Father’s) or Ave’s (Hail Mary’s) for the 150 Psalms they could not read.

The Annunciation The prayers were originally counted by transferring pebbles from one bag to another, but soon enough Christians began to tie a rope with knots on which to count. This evolved further into using beads or pieces of wood in place of the knots, and this soon came to be called the “Psalter of the Laity”. Around the end of the first millennium, rosaries contained the present five decades (sets of ten beads), with the Ave beads shaped like white lilies for the purity of the Virgin and the Pater beads shaped like red roses for the wounds and Passion of Christ.

St. Dominic de Guzman popularized the Marian Psalter in the form we have it today (150 Aves with a Pater after each 10) when Our Lady encouraged him to pray it that way in response to the Albigensian heresy. So associated with the Rosary is St. Dominic that the Rosary is often called the “Dominican Rosary”.

The Rosary, thus, has always been a weapon against heresy and trouble. In fact, the October 7, 1571 victory of Christendom over Islamic warriors at the Battle of Lepanto – the first naval victory against the infidels – was attributed directly to the rosaries prayed by the faithful.

The Essence of the Rosary

The popes tell us its essence is “to recall the mysteries of salvation in succession, while the subject of meditation is mingled and interlaced with the Angelic Salutation and prayer to God the Father.” Meditation on the mysteries of salvation is a short and easy method to nourish faith and to preserve it from ignorance and error. These mysteries of salvation are the key events in the lives of Jesus and Mary and the lessons and truths learned from them: faith in God, the future life, the forgiveness of sins, the mysteries of the August Trinity, the Incarnation of the Word, the Divine Maternity and others.

 Spiritual Fruits

The rosary is presented both as a “school of faith” and a “school of charity.” Meditation on the mysteries of salvation is to lead to conversion of heart and change of conduct. Contemplation on the mysteries is essentially a loving act of gratitude through which the heart is “filled with love…hope enlarged, and the desire increased for those things which Christ has prepared for such as have united themselves to Him in imitation of His example and in participation in His sufferings.” Attentive consideration of the “precious memorials” of our Redeemer leads to “a heart on fire with gratitude to Him.”

The rosary, the popes teach, is also meant to influence society as a whole. Several papal encyclicals speak of the social consequences, or the effects on society, which meditation on the mysteries of the rosary could produce. The holy and powerful life of Jesus Christ is to be a real antidote and remedy for the errors afflicting society. Our Lord’s example and that of His Mother are brought before our mind’s eye to be our encouragement and the sure path through life’s joys and sorrows. We must recall the command of Our Lady at her apparitions, both at Lourdes and at Fatima, that we must pray the rosary for sinners.

All of the popes have earnestly desired that the Holy Rosary should be recited especially during the month of October with increased devotion and with the utmost possible zeal, both in the churches and in homes. They urge that the Christian people should be led by its recitation to understand the dignity, the power, and the excellence of the Holy Rosary.

For more information, read the excellent and comprehensive Holy Rosary article in the Catholic Encyclopedia, which offers a detailed history of this prayer in the Church. Upon request, we will include a leaflet on how to pray the rosary with any rosary order.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy!

 Fifteen Promises of Our Lady to Christians who Recite the Rosary

  1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the rosary shall receive signal graces.
  2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the rosary.
  3. The rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, decrease sin and defeat heresies.
  4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means!
  5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the rosary shall not perish.
  6. Whoever shall recite the rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
  7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
  8. Those who are faithful to recite the rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the rosary.
  10. The faithful children of the rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
  11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the rosary.
  12. All those who propagate the holy rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
  13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
  14. All who recite the rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ.
  15. Devotion to my rosary is a great sign of predestination.

(Given to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan)
