The Rosary is apriceless treasureThe Rosary is a source and astore-house of countlessblessings.
Crown of roses. Precious stones. Gold coins to Heaven. Innumerable indulgences. Treasure of graces.--- by St. Louis de Montfort
The Rosary is a priceless treasure which is inspired by God. Almighty God has attached to it grace in this life and glory in the next. Our Lady not only blesses those who preach her Rosary but she highly rewards all those who, by their example, get others to say it.
(1). “CROWN of ROSES” for Mary Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose, and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. Every time people say the Rosary devoutly they place on the heads of Jesus and Mary 153 white roses and sixteen red roses.
Crowns for ourselves. "Let us crown ourselves with the roses of the holy Rosary.” So by all means we should eagerly crown ourselves with these roses from heaven, and recite the entire Rosary every day, that is to say, three rosaries each of five decades, which are like three little wreaths or crowns of flowers.” Our Lady once said to Blessed Alan, "I want those who are devoted to my Rosary to have my Sons grace and blessing during their lifetime, at death and after their death. I want them to be freed from all slavery so that they will be like kings, with crowns on their heads, sceptres in their hands and to reign in eternal glory. Amen
The Jesuit brother, Alphonsus Rodriguez, used to say his Rosary with such fervour that he often saw a red rose come out of his mouth at each Our Father, and a white rose at each Hail Mary, both equal in beauty and differing only in colour. The rose is the queen of flowers and the Rosary is the rose of devotions and the most important one. Being heavenly flowers, these roses will never fade or lose their beauty .
(2)Precious stones1 Hail Mary =15 precious stones!"He who honours his Mother (the BlessedVirgin) is as one who lays up a treasure."Present her every day with at least fifty HailMarys, for each one is worth fifteen preciousstones, which are more pleasing to her thanall the riches of this world put together .”-----St.Louis Montfort
3. Gold coins: One day Saint Gertrude had a vision of our Lord counting gold coins. She summoned the courage to ask him what he was doing, and he answered, "I am counting the Hail Mary’s that you have said. This is the money with which you purchase heaven."
(4) Treasure of indulgences An immense treasure of indulgences which are applicable to the souls in Purgatory. The Rosary is the "Queen of indulgenced devotions." The Confraternity is the most indulgenced pious association of the faithful. This is what led St. Alphonsus to say: "After Holy Mass the best means of relieving the souls in Purgatory is to join the Confraternity."
(5) Treasure of graces We please our Lord when we ask him for graces, and if we do not ask he makes a loving complaint, "Until now you have not asked anything.... Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you." He has bound himself by a promise: that his eternal Father would grant everything we ask in his name. It pleases our Lady to ask her for graces. “What joy my motherly heart feels when you ask me of something. Expect everything and ask everything of me.”
"And let this not seem incredible to you; it is easy for me because I am the Mother of the King of heaven, and he calls me full of grace. And being filled with grace, I am able to dispense it freely to my dear children." "There is no surer means of calling down Gods blessings upon the family than the daily recitation of the Rosary" (Pope Pius XII).
