Through the Rosary, the soul bears witness to its love for Jesus, makes reparation to the Holy Humanity for the outrages of heresy, and gives burning thanks to the Most Holy Trinity for the benefits of the Incarnation and Redemption. This devotion has been sanctioned by the Church, by indulgences, by miracles, by conversions, and finally by the practice of the Saints. Consider again all that is contained in the mere method of reciting the Rosary. First of all, we must imagine the mystery we propose to honor, and always include the Blessed Virgin in the picture we draw for ourselves; for the Rosary is Her prerogative. To each mystery we must associate some duty or virtue, and ask the Virgin Mary for the grace to practice it well.
“Console yourselves, chosen souls, console yourselves and rejoice. When you would practice no other devotion than saying your Rosary day and night, you would be sanctified. To say your Rosary is to do what Jesus did the best part of His life. When I say my Rosary, I say: Hail Mary; and didn’t Jesus greet Her in the morning, in the evening, passing by Her, giving Her a good morning? When I say my Rosary, I call Mary full of grace; and Jesus filled Her with grace. I say to Her: The Lord is with Thee; and Jesus, who is the Lord, was always with Her. I said to Her, Thou art blessed among women, and Jesus filled Her with blessings among all creatures. So He was doing what we say when we pray the Hail Mary.”
(Father Le Jeune)
Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.
O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
My Jesus, forgiveness and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
