Doree:
Having made the above comment, I'm being led to write also and testify about the Novena 'Our Lady Undoer of knots'.

Do you feel the pressures on you are too much? My dear, someone can help you undo it. Yes, I am talking about our Lady! She has done it for me and my family, so I am very certain of what I'm saying.

Whatelse? If you feel too tired to pray the Holy Rosary, you can still make the Novena which contains the Rosary in it. Atleast you won't get to miss a day without the Rosary since Novenas are usually an unbroken chain of nine days.

Is they Litany of Mary part of this novena?

THE SORROWFUL MYSTERIES


I. THE AGONY OF JESUS IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE



Prophesied Isaiah 53:8,10-12

Oppressed and condemned, he was taken away; … smitten for the sin of his people. … Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him in infirmity. If he gives his life as an offering for sin, … the will of the LORD shall be accomplished through him. … Through his suffering, my servant shall justify many, and their guilt he shall bear. … He surrendered himself to death.


Prefigured Genesis 37:8,27-28

“Are you really going to make yourself king over us?” his brothers asked him. … “Let us sell him to these Ishmaelites, instead of doing away with him ourselves. After all, he is our brother, our own flesh.” His brothers agreed. They sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver.


Mark 14:32-33
1) They came to a place named Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” He took with him Peter, James, and John, and began to be troubled and distressed.



Mark 14:34-35
2) Then he said to them, “My soul is sorrowful even to death. Remain here and keep watch.” He advanced a little and fell to the ground and prayed that if it were possible the hour might pass by him.



Mark 14:36-37
3) He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible to you. Take this cup away from me, but not what I will but what you will.” When he returned he found them asleep. He said, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for 1 hour?”



Mark 14:38-40 4) “Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” Withdrawing again, he prayed, saying the same thing. Then he returned once more and found them asleep. They could not keep their eyes open.



Luke 22:43
5) To strengthen him an angel from heaven appeared to him. He was in such agony and he prayed so fervently that his sweat became like drops of blood falling on the ground.



Mark 14:41-42
6) He returned a third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough. The hour has come. Behold, the Son of Man is to be handed over to sinners. Get up, let us go. See, my betrayer is at hand.”



Luke 22:47-48
7) While he was still speaking, a crowd approached and in front was one of the 12, a man named Judas. He went up to Jesus to kiss him. Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”



John 18:10-11
cool Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it, struck the high priest’s slave, and cut off his right ear. … Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its scabbard. Shall I not drink the cup that the Father gave me?”



Matt. 26:53,55
9) “Do you think that I cannot call upon my Father and he will not provide me at this moment with more than 12 legions of angels?” … Jesus said to the crowds, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to seize me?”



Matt. 26:55-57
10) “Day after day I sat teaching in the temple area, yet you did not arrest me. But all this has come to pass that the writings of the prophets may be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples left him and fled. Those who arrested Jesus led him away

THE SORROWFUL MYSTERIES

II. THE SCOURGING AND ABUSE OF JESUS


Prophesied Isaiah 53:5-7 He was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins; upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by his stripes we were healed. We had all gone astray like sheep; each following his own way; but the LORD has laid upon him the guilt of us all. Though he was harshly treated, he submitted and opened not his mouth, like a lamb led to the slaughter.


Prefigured Jeremiah 26:10-11; 37:15 When the princes of Judah were informed of these things, they came up from the king’s palace to the house of the LORD and held court. … The priests and prophets said to the princes and to all the people, “This man deserves death; he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your own ears.” … The princes were enraged, and had Jeremiah beaten and thrown into prison.



John 18:19-22
1) [Annas] questioned Jesus about his disciples and doctrine. … Jesus answered, … “Why ask me? Ask those who heard me what I said to them.” … When he said this, one of the temple guards standing there struck Jesus.



Mark 14:61-64
2) He was silent and answered nothing. The high priest asked, … “Are you the Messiah, the son of the Blessed One?” Then Jesus answered, “I am.” … At that the high priest tore his garments and said, … “You have heard the blasphemy.”


Mark 14:64-65
3) [Caiphas asked,] “What do you think?” They all condemned him as deserving to die. Some began to spit on him. They blindfolded him and struck him and said to him, “Prophesy!” And the guards greeted him with blows.


Mt. 27:2,12-14
4) They bound him, led him away, and handed him over to Pilate, the governor. … When he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he made no answer. … The governor was greatly amazed.



John 18:33,36-37
5) Pilate went back into the praetorium and summoned Jesus and said to him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” … Jesus answered, “My kingdom does not belong to this world.” … Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?”



John 18:37-38
6) Jesus answered, “You say I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”



Luke 23:6-9,11
7) Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean; … he sent him to Herod. … [Jesus] gave him no answer. … Herod and his soldiers treated him contemptuously and mocked him, and after clothing him in resplendent garb, sent him back to Pilate.



Luke 23:14-18
cool [Pilate] said to them, … “Herod … sent him back to us. So no capital crime has been committed by him. Therefore I shall have him flogged and then release him.” But all together they shouted out, “Away with this man!”



Luke 23:21-22
9) They continued their shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Pilate addressed them, … “I shall have him flogged and then release him.”



John 18:39-19:1
10) “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” They cried out again, “Not this one but Barabbas!” Now Barabbas was a revolutionary. Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged.

HOW TO RECITE THE ROSARY


1. PURITY OF INTENTION

It is not so much the length of a prayer, but the fervor with which it is said which pleases Almighty God and touches His Heart.

One single Hail Mary that is said properly is worth more than one hundred and fifty that are badly said.

Most Catholics say the Rosary, the whole fifteen mysteries or five of them anyway or, at least a few decades. So why is it then that so few of them give up their sins and go forward in the spiritual life? Surely it must be because they are not saying them as they should.

It is a good thing to think over how we should pray if we really want to please God and become more holy.

To say the Holy Rosary to advantage one must be in a state of grace or at the very least be fully determined to give up mortal sin.


This we know because all our theology teaches us that good works and prayers are only dead works if they are done in a state of mortal sin. Therefore they can neither be pleasing to God nor help us gain eternal life. This is why Ecclesiastes says: “Praise is not seemly in the mouth of a sinner.”35 Praise of God and the salutation of the Angel and the very Prayer of Jesus Christ are not pleasing to God when they are said by unrepentant sinners.

Our Lord said: “This people honoreth Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.”36 It is as though He was saying: “Those who join My Confraternity and say their Rosary every day (even perhaps the fifteen decades), but without being sorry for their sins offer Me lip service only and their hearts are far from Me.”

I have just said that to say the Rosary to advantage one must be in a state of grace “or at least be fully determined to give up mortal sin;” first of all, because, if it were true that God only heard the prayers of those in a state of grace it would follow that people in a state of mortal sin should not pray at all.


This is an erroneous teaching which has been condemned by Holy Mother Church, because of course sinners need to pray far more than good people do. Were this horrible doctrine true it would then be useless and futile to tell a sinner to say all, or even part of his Rosary, because it would never help him.

Secondly, because if they join one of Our Lady’s confraternities and recite the Rosary or some other prayer, but without having the slightest intention of giving up sin, they join the ranks of her false devotees.

These presumptuous and impenitent devotees, hiding under her mantle, wearing the scapular and with rosary in hand, cry out: “Blessed Virgin, good Mother—Hail, Mary! . . .” And yet at the same time, by their sins, they are crucifying Our Lord Jesus Christ and tearing His flesh anew. It is a great tragedy, but from the very ranks of Our Lady’s most holy Confraternities souls are faIling into the fires of Hell.

We earnestly beg everyone to say the Holy Rosary: the just that they may persevere and grow in God’s grace; the sinners that they may rise from their sins. But God forbid that we should ever encourage a sinner to think that Our Lady will protect him with Her mantle if he continues to love sin, for then it will only turn into a mantle of damnation which will hide his sins from the public eye. The Rosary, which is a cure for all our ills, would then be turned into deadly poison. “A corruption of what is best is worst.”

The learned Cardinal Hughes says: “One should really be as pure as an Angel to approach the Blessed Virgin and to say the Angelic Salutation.” One day Our Lady appeared to an immoral man who used to always say his Rosary every day. She showed him a bowl of beautiful fruit, but the bowl itself was covered with filth. The man was horrified to see this, and Our Lady said: “This is the way you are honoring me! You are giving me beautiful roses in a filthy bowl. Do you think I can accept presents of this kind?”

Mary: the Mother of God

“The greatest praise we can give to the Blessed virgin is to address her loudly and clearly by the name that expresses her very highest dignity: ‘Mother of God’.” – St. Jose Maria Escriva

Offering: Frequent aspirations of love, such as: “Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us.”

Day 2


MOTHER MOST PURE


(1) MARY, you are the Mother most pure because you were perfectly free from every stain of sin. The words of the Holy Spirit are to be applied to you: "Thou art all fair, O my love, and there is not a spot in thee" (Canticles 4,7). Even the greatest saints in the very instant of conception are tainted with original sin. You alone are an exception; you were conceived and born without original sin.

How could you, who were to crush the serpent's head, have been under the slavery of the devil even for a moment? As the chosen Daughter of the Father, the most holy Mother of the Son, and the immaculate Spouse of the Holy Spirit, you could never have been under the curse of sin. Your dignity as Mother of God demanded such a privilege. It was fitting that the God of all purity should spring from the greatest purity. God was able to grant such a privilege, and He did. And for this I praise you as Mother Most Pure.

(2) MARY, you were also preserved from all actual sin and imperfection, so that you never offended God even by the most trifling offense. On your deathbed you were as pure as when you were conceived and born. Because God had destined you to be the Mother of His Son, He gave you extraordinary graces with the help of which it was possible for you to preserve your soul from even the shadow of sin. You were ever obedient to the inspirations of grace, and you never had the least inclination to sin. You detested sin as the greatest of all evils.

Mother Most Pure, be always my model of purity. Strengthen me against mortal sin, and help me to use the graces God gives me to overcome it. Aid me in shunning even willful venial sin and everything that may lead to it.

(3) MARY, you had no inclination even to whatever was useless or dangerous to your virtue. Your heart, being filled with the love of God, had no room in it for anything that was not God or did not lead to God. You were so pure that not even a natural imperfection cast the least shadow upon your soul. Your nature, which had remained untouched by original sin, was completely under the control of the spirit, and the spirit was subject to the will of God in all things. You were the perfect model of sanctity because everything in your life was well regulated, everything in beautiful harmony.

Mother Most Pure, detach my heart from the perishable goods of this world, that I may not risk losing the eternal joys of heaven. May I hereafter have the happiness of beholding your glory in heaven, since God has promised His kingdom to those who are pure of heart: "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God" (Matt. 5,cool.

"And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words." - Matthew 6:7

"Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few." - Ecclesiastes 5:2

Also, we should pray to GOD only!

Day 3.

Praying the Rosary is not as difficult as people think.

Read the Bible verse for each Mystery or get Rosary handbook with scripture reading.

Do you always start but you don't ever finishing praying your Rosary? Change the time you pray especially if it is at night or when you are very tired.

Try to limit the distractions when praying the Rosary.

Get more people to join in this devotion.

Day 4


Song Title: I'll Sing a Hymn to Mary



I'll sing a hymn to Mary,
The Mother of my God,
The Virgin of all virgins,
Of David's royal blood.
O teach me, holy Mary,
A loving song to frame,
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
To love and bless thy name.

O Lily of the Valley,
O Mystic Rose, what tree,
Or flower, e'en the fairest,
Is half so fair as thee?
O let me, tho' so lowly
Recite my Mother's fame.
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I'll love and bless thy name.

O noble Tower of David,
Of gold and ivory.
The Ark of God's own promise,
The gate of Heav'n to me.
To live and not to love thee
Would fill my soul with shame;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I'll love and bless thy name.


The saints are high in glory,
With golden crowns so bright;
But brighter far is Mary,
Upon her throne of light.
Oh that which God did give thee,
Let mortal ne'er disclaim;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I'll love and bless thy name.


But in the crown of Mary,
There lies a wonderous gem,
As Queen of all the angels,
Which Mary shares with them;
No sin hath e'er defiled thee,
So doth our faith proclaim;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I'll love and bless thy name.

With The Heart’s Devotion True.
Lost In Wondering Contemplation,
Be Her Majesty Confessed!

Happy Mother, Virgin Blest!

She Is Mighty To Deliver;
Call Her, Trust Her Lovingly.
When The Tempest Rages Round You,
She Will Calm The Troubled Sea.
Gifts Of Heaven She Has Given,
Noble Lady, To Our Race;
She, The Queen, Who Clothes Her Subjects
With The Light Of God’s Own Grace.

All Our Joys Do Flow From Mary;
All Then Join Her Praise To Sing.
Trembling, Sing The Virgin Mother,
Mother Of Our Lord And King.
While We Sing Her Awesome Glory,
Far Above Our Fancy’s Reach,
Let Our Hearts Be Quick To Offer
Love The Heart Alone Can Reach.

Sing, My Tongue, The Virgin’s Honors,
Who For Us Her Maker Bore,
For The Curse Of Old Inflicted,
Peace And Blessings To Restore.
Sing In Songs Of Praise Unending,
Sing The World’s Majestic Queen;
Weary Not Nor Faint In Telling
All The Gifts That Earth Has Seen.

All My Senses, Heart, Affections,
Strive To Sound Her Glory Forth.
Spread Abroad The Sweet Memorials
Of The Virgin’s Priceless Worth.
Where The Voice Of Music Thrilling,
Where The Tongues Of Eloquence,
That Can Utter Hymns Befitting
All Her Matchless Excellence?

FIFTEENTH ROSE: THE HAIL MARY


THE ANGELIC SALUTATION is so heavenly and so beyond us in its depth of meaning that Blessed Alan de la Roche held that no mere creature could ever possibly understand it, and that only Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Who was born of the Blessed Virgin Mary can really explain it.



Its enormous value is due first of all to Our Lady to whom it was addressed, to the purpose of the Incarnation of the Word for which reason this prayer was brought from Heaven, and also to the Archangel Gabriel who was the first ever to say it.



The Angelic Salutation is a most concise summary of all that Catholic theology teaches about the Blessed Virgin. It is divided into two parts, that of praise and petition: the first shows all that goes to make up Mary’s greatness and the second all that we need to ask her for and all that we may expect to receive through her goodness.



The Most Blessed Trinity revealed the first part of it to us and the latter part was added by Saint Elizabeth who was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Holy Mother Church gave us the conclusion in the year 430 when she condemned the Nestorian heresy at the council of Ephesus and defined that the Blessed Virgin is truly the Mother of God. At this time she ordered us to pray to Our Lady under this glorious title by saying:



“Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death.”



The greatest event in the whole history of the world was the Incarnation of the Eternal Word by Whom the world was redeemed and peace was restored between God and men. Our Lady was chosen as His instrument for this tremendous event and it was put into effect when she was greeted with the Angelic Salutation. The Archangel Gabriel, one of the leading princes of the heavenly court, was chosen as ambassador to bear these glad tidings.



In the Angelic Salutation can be seen the faith and hope of the patriarchs, the prophets and the Apostles. Furthermore it gives to Martyrs their unswerving constancy and strength, it is the wisdom of the doctors of the Church, the perseverance of holy confessors and the life of all religious. (Blessed Alan de la Roche) It is also the new hymn of the law of grace, the joy of Angels and men, and the hymn which terrifies devils and puts them to shame.



By the Angelic Salutation God became man, a virgin became the Mother of God, the souls of the just were delivered from Limbo, the empty thrones in Heaven filled. In addition sin was forgiven, grace was given to us, sick people were made well, the dead were brought back to life, exiles were brought home, and the anger of the Most Blessed Trinity was appeased and men obtained eternal life.



Finally, the Angelic Salutation is a rainbow in the heavens, a sign of the mercy and grace which God has given to the world. (Blessed Alan da la Roche).
Re: ROSARY; How Often Do You Say Your Rosary by motherofperpetu: 10:17pm On May 07
The Lady of the Rosary will lead us to her Son, to Peace and Love!


Let us put more effort and pray the Rosary everyday.
