The meaning of the holy rosary


Mother of God:  The rosary is my joy, the rosary is My feast. Today I would like to express the most clearly possible what the rosary is for Me and what it is for the world. The rosary is a prayer in which one can attain the very heights of holiness; it is a path of mystical union all the way to Heaven itself. The mystery of this path is contained in humility and contemplation. Belief in the power of the rosary – is humility. Humility also encompasses obedience and patience, the smallness of the soul that carries out what it was commanded with no consolation and extra-ordinariness. Contemplation, which is the path to getting to know God, is contained in the desire to getting to know My life, perfectly united with the life of the Son of God. In contemplating the mysteries of the rosary, the soul of Man immerses herself in the greatest mysteries of God.

The rosary contains in itself all the mysteries and all the graces that the souls need to unite with God. It is a quite simple way to Heaven, which everyone can follow. There is no need here neither for special skills nor places, because the rosary is a prayer for the little ones, who do not possess anything. The contemplation of the mysteries of the rosary should be an attempt to unite with the life that glorified God and that pleased Him, with My life.

Each man receives a multitude of graces to the measure of his abilities according to the intention of God. I received the most, because I was the most able to accept these graces, but each man receives the same amount of grace, meaning as much as he is able to accept. This is the starting point in each mystery. To what extent man is able to reproduce in his life what he sees in the rosary. My life was nothing else than only a loving accompaniment of God in His intents. I by Myself did not desire anything and did not strive towards anything. I was just striving to always keep pace with the One, whom I loved.

The rosary is a transfer of merits and graces from each mystery into the soul and the life of man, who says it, so that he could take his place in the work of the Salvation of the world. The mystery of Salvation and Redemption is not a closed mystery, but a work that continually calls upon people to continue it. As a result of humble prayer, the life of man can be perfected in the rosary and through the rosary it can be united with the life of My Son and Mine: united in the hardships and sufferings, in the joy and happiness, but also in the graces and merits. The humble man recognizes that the Salvation of his soul is accomplished through the merits of My Son – the Savior of the world, and not through the efforts and the prayers of man. What the Christian does, by saying the rosary, is to connect himself to the work of Salvation, which has been accomplished by the Son of God. In this work God was glorified, and only by taking part in this work, the soul attains Salvation. There is no other source of Salvation and there will never be. Thus, man should search for Salvation and happiness solely and exclusively in the merits of the Son of God. This is what I have done, accompanying My Son everywhere from the moment of His birth until the moment of His death.

Praying the rosary is thus becoming engaged in the work that perfectly glorified God. Each soul, which will engage in this work on Earth, is like a new flower in the wreath of glory with which was glorified God the Father. Man should not desire to gift God with his own wreath, but, in humility, desire to be a part of the wreath that brought to Him from Earth His beloved Son.

Each rosary offered to Me with love brings Me great joy, because it glorifies God in the work, which He intended to save mankind. My every merit and every merit of My Son are as if re-actualized anew and offered to God the Father. And in this way, the stream of praise sent from Earth to Heaven never ends, even though My Son and I have already left the Earth, to receive the deserved glory. This endless work of praise lasts on Earth precisely thanks to your rosaries. This is why I continually ask for them, because the answer of God to this praise is always grace and mercy, which are like a returning stream that flows down upon the Earth.

In this month, your conversations will be dedicated to the mystery of the rosary. We will direct a call to the world, which once again will summon it to pray the rosary. Now I bless you, My child, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
