Our Lady of the Assumption

A Protestant minister confused by a catechumen.

Heresy vainly pursues the cult of Mary with its hatred and insults: God is pleased to raise up powerful defenders for the Queen of Heaven among the least of His children.

A catechumen from Oceania, wearing the rosary around his neck according to custom, found himself in an assembly in the presence of an Anglican missionary. The opportunity to insult Mary, and to win an easy victory, was too good to pass up. The man of error looked at the neophyte with a smile, and questioned him in a mocking tone about the futility of this diabolical necklace. Immediately the servant of Mary goes and sits down in the middle of the circle, opposite the minister, and says to him:

“You want to know what our lozalio means, (that is the name they give to the rosary); I will tell you: The rosary serves only to regulate a certain number of prayers, and the order in which we are accustomed to say them. These are the prayers we say: I believe in God the Father Almighty, etc. First you see that there is nothing diabolical about this prayer: I believe in God.”

He was about to continue, when the minister got up and went home to hide his defeat. All the spectators, even the Protestants, applauded the catechumen’s wise reply, and this well-meditated answer would be enough to convince any detractor of the rosary of ignorance.
