The Power of the Most Holy Rosary

the rosaryPlease join us on Tuesday’s show as we talk about the power of the Rosary.  I (Debbie) will be referring to a Talk I attended on Saturday evening by Fr. Donald Calloway.  It was one of the BEST presentations on the Rosary I have ever heard.  If you would like to hear the talk…the link is provided.  I encourage you to watch the presentation with your family and if you have not already done so, please pray the Rosary daily as part of your spiritual regime…

  1. Please Debbie –do not discourage individuals from praying the rosary for a plenary indulgence.
    We single people receive a plenary indulgence when we say the rosary in a church in front of the blessed sacrament…as well as in a pious group or family rosary. We must also receive Holy Communion on the same day, reject all sin in our lives and go to confession within 9 days, before or after. Single people can pray alone before the Blessed Sacrament and receive the indulgence.

    • Jane, I would never discourage plenary indulgences for single people, please know that I was simply reiterating the statements from Fr. Callaway’s presentation I attended in a way that could be easily conveyed to our listeners. I am a firm believer and love the partial and plenary indulgences. http://www.themostholyrosary.com/indulgences.htm
      I am sorry for any confusion on this and I hope you now know we agree on this…:-) Have a beautiful and blessed weekend!
      And please pray for the show, that it continues to touch many souls…

      • Hi Debbie, I asked this question yesterday of the priest serving at 10:30 Mass in Stockbridge, MA at Eden Hill, National Shrine of Divine Mercy. He told me if there are other people in the church when we are praying our individual Rosary for an indulgence, one cannot recite out loud for fear of bothering someone else’s prayer. If it makes us feel better (and hopefully not to be scrupulous about it), we can form the words in our mouth without being vocal, to make it more public, but either way, he reminded me that ½ hour praying to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is also a Plenary Indulgence. There are so many ways we can receive a Plenary Indulgences we can do it daily, especially for the Holy Souls who count on us! WHAT an Awesome Church we have!

        Thanks, Debbie for mentioning indulgences. It is a sore topic for some of our separated brothers and sisters and because of it our teachers dropped the subject. How blessed we are to purchase with our time and effort from the OVER abundant merits of Jesus and His Mother, all the saints in heaven and united with our own sufferings. The Church helps us use ALL of it to benefit the Holy Souls and ourselves. We are all in this together.

        Regarding the merits of the saints and poor sinners, Jesus said, `I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.

        Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent.’ Revelation 3:15-19

  2. Thank you, Father Calloway! I am completely blown over. I am on my 16th day of Fr. Michael Gaitley’s “33 Days to Morning Glory” and was needing a boost to continue this retreat, which will complete on August 15, The Assumption of Our Lady. My daughter’s name is Anne Marie and the feast of the Assumption is her birthday. I have returned to the church in my soul just recently and have never known much about the rosary or Our Lady until now. I am sure our Blessed Mother led me to this through EWTN to encourage me. The rosary will be my sword. God Bless you.

  3. Thanks for having the link to Father Calloway’s talk, it was awesome. The Holy Spirit definitely led me here – I saw tomorrows topic on spouses helping each other get to heaven which was brought up in our couples prayer/ sharing group last Sunday evening and this months study is on prayer. Bless you.
