In fact, the Blessed Mother herself gave fifteen promises to those who would pray the Rosary faithfully everyday:
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 people 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 plentitude 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 children, and brothers and sisters of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
15. Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination. And thanks to devout and holy saints such as St. Louis De Monfort, we know that if we faithfully
MEANING AND USES OF HOLY WATER
Traditionally, we have placed fonts of holy water
near the entrances of our churches.
This placement and usage corresponds actually to
Old Testament Jewish practices of purification:
The Book of Leviticus prescribed various
ritual purifications using water to remove the
"uncleanness" associated, for instance,
with coming into contact with a dead body,
menstruation, childbirth, or leprosy
(cf. Leviticus 12-15).
A person also purified himself with water before entering
the Temple precincts,
offering prayer and sacrifice, and eating.
For this reason,
in the Courtyard of the Priests
(the area before the actual Temple building)
was the Laver, an immense bronze basin filled with water.
Here the priests purified their hands and feet
before offering sacrifices at the nearby altar,
bathed before entering the Temple itself, and also drew water for
other purifications prescribed in Jewish rituals. Interestingly,
the Qumran community, located near the Dead Sea
and responsible for producing the Dead Sea scrolls,
also had purification pools for the cleansing not only
of external "uncleanness" but also of sin.
We too have fonts filled with holy water for blessings for three reasons:
as a sign of repentance of sin, for protection from evil,
and as a reminder of our Baptism.
The repentance of sin symbolized in
the washing with water is reflected in Psalm 50:
"Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt and of my sin cleanse me.
Cleanse me of sin with hyssop that I may be purified;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow" (3-4, 9).
(Hyssop is a small bush used for sprinkling water).
Remember too how St. John the Baptizer called all to conversion
using a ritual washing of water to signify the repentance of sin and purification.
These actions have been incorporated into our own Mass.
In the Penitential Rite,
one of the options is the Asperges,
which includes the Rite of Blessing and Sprinkling with Holy Water.
As the priest passes through the
congregation sprinkling them with the holy water,
they customarily chant the Asperges Me,
which is based on Psalm 50.
In all, each person again makes an act of repentance of sin.
Second, holy water protects us against evil.
In the prayer of blessing of water in the Sacramentary,
we read: "Lord, God Almighty, creator of all life, of body and soul,
we ask you to bless this water:
as we use it in faith forgive our sins
and save us from all illness and the power of evil.
Lord, in your mercy give us living water,
always springing up as a fountain of salvation;
free us, body and soul, from every danger,
and admit us to your presence in purity of heart."
Finally, holy water reminds us of our Baptism,
when by the invocation of the Holy Trinity
and the pouring of holy water,
we were set free from Original Sin and all sin,
infused with sanctifying grace,
incorporated into the Church,
and given the title son or daughter of God.
In making the sign of the cross with the holy water,
we are mindful that we are called to renew
those baptismal promises of rejecting Satan,
all his works, and all his empty promises,
and to profess our credal faith.
Once again, we repent of sin,
so that we can offer our prayers and worship to God
with pure and contrite hearts.
Just as water and blood flowed from the Sacred Heart
of our Lord as He hung upon the cross —
signifying the great sacraments of Baptism and Holy Eucharist,
the taking of holy water and making
the sign of the cross remind us of our Baptism
in preparation for the reception of the Holy Eucharist.
Never should we doubt the power of this great sacramental.
St. Teresa of Avila in her autobiography,
The Book of Her Life, wrote of the power of holy water:
AI was once in an oratory, and [the devil]
appeared to me in an abominable form at my left side.
Because he spoke to me,
I looked particularly at his mouth —
which was most frightening.
It seemed that a great flame, all bright without shadow,
came forth from his body.
He told me in a terrifying way that I had really freed myself from
his hands but that he would catch me with them again.
I was struck with great fear and blessed myself as best I could;
he disappeared, but returned right away. This happened to me twice.
I didn't know what to do. There was some holy water there,
and I threw it in that direction;
he never returned again. ... I often experience that there is
nothing the devils flee from more —
without returning — than holy water" (Chapter 31).
Upon the testimony of such a great saint,
we see the importance not only of pausing
to bless ourselves with holy water as we enter and leave Church
but also of having holy water available in our homes.
