Mary's Psalter - The Rosary
"You ought therefore to have committed my money to the bankers: and at my coming I should have received my own with usury." (Matthew 25:27).
the original name
is "The Mary's Psalter"
; "The Rosary" came later from The Blessed Virgin Mary's statement that all who pray Her Psalter put on Her head a crown made of most beautiful heavenly roses
the origin of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) has become controversial: whether It was revealed by The Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Dominic or has been a joint Divine-human product developed over centuries
The Mother of God and thus of everyone and everything else (for nothing exists outside infinity i.e. God) proclaimed Her Immaculate (Sinless) Conception at Lourdes with The Rosary beads around Her hand.
All humans except Jesus Christ and Her are born with The Original sin (see why under "The Immaculate Heart of Mary").
If The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) had had anything to do with humans The Blessed Virgin Mary would have held an item connected with The Original sin at the very moment when She communicated Her extraordinary grace of freedom from the very same Original sin at Her conception;
Thus it is obvious that The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) cannot have anything to do with any human sinner as to its origin and form

The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) was revealed during unsuccessful struggles of St. Dominic with seducers and false prophets of his time (Albigenses): all Christian prayers, fastings, penances, alms and sermons were of no avail before Its revelation but soon after it, when prayer of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) began to spread, Albigenses were routed both militarily and spiritually
The Church's feast Our Lady of The Rosary was instituted in 1571 under the name Our Lady of Victory as thanksgiving to The Blessed Virgin Mary and to The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) for the victory of Catholic fleet over Mohammedan fleet at Lepanto; before and during the battle of Lepanto whole Rome and many others prayed The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) for the victory;
Not long afterwards the feast's name was changed into Our Lady of The Rosary (The Mary's Psalter);
In 1716 after victory of Catholic army over Mohammedan army at Petrovaradin (Peterwardein) the feast was extended to the whole Church as thanksgiving to The Blessed Virgin Mary and to The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) for that victory;
On October 7th, 1571 at Lepanto Catholic fleet defeated until-then-undefeated Mohammedan fleet. Had Catholic fleet lost at Lepanto there would have been no Catholic fleet any more and Mohammedans would have had open way to land at, besiege and take Rome; after the defeat Mohammedans never threatened Rome from the sea; Thus Lepanto of 1571 was as Poitiers of 732;
On August 5th, 1716 at Petrovaradin (Peterwardein) much bigger invading Mohammedan (Turkish) army was routed by much smaller Catholic (Austrian) army; after their crushing defeat Mohammedan Turks lost Christian land they had occupied and the war
In 1955, after over half a million Austrians prayed The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) to liberate Austria from the occupying Soviets, occupying Soviet army left Austria peacefully***
while remaining for decades in all the other Eastern European countries it occupied; to this day no historian has been able to explain this peaceful leave of the Soviets;
*** - some things on that site are, unfortunately, anti-Catholic: see below why; this testimony, however, about the Rosary, Austria and the Soviets is Catholic;
In 1956 and 1968, Hungarians and Czechs respectively didn't pray The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) but began insurgency against the occupying Soviets confiding in their human rights to freedom and peace and in their own strength; the result: both insurgencies were crushed by Soviet army in heavy bloodshed and the occupation was severer than before;

The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) has an extraordinary connection to The Bible: numbers of prayers prayed in one of The Gospel Mysteries of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary), prayed in one set of The Gospel Mysteries of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) (Joyous, Sorrowful and Glorious set of Gospel Mysteries) and prayed in The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) itself are directly connected with the Gospel Mysteries of Christian faith written in The Bible:
e.g. number 3 with the number of Divine Persons in the one and only God, 150 with the number of Psalms in The Bible
, 153 with the number of the caught big fishes in The Gospel of John, 50 with 50 days from Resurrection until Pentecost and with the 50th (Jubilee) year when all debts were forgiven to everyone in Israel, 5 with the 5 open wounds of Jesus Christ, 53 with The Man of Sorrows from 53rd chapter of The Book of Isaiah and 53 days from Good Friday until Pentecost, 15 decades of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) with the 15th hour (of day's 24 hours) on which Jesus Christ died on The Cross and forever crushed the power of sin and Satan over humans etc.
e.g. is prayed on the Rosary beads which form a noose from The Gospel: by that most special noose Satan and all his devils are helplessly bound (Matthew 12:29
e.g. The Rosary beads usually (with the cross) has the form of a snake: as the above facts prove The Rosary beads is the rod and the snake of God given to The Catholic Church and to Catholics to destroy all their enemies and all their snares as there was the rod and the snake of God given to Moses to destroy all magicians' snakes (Exodus 7:8-12
e.g. The Rosary beads with its five decades to be prayed is the sling with five smooth stones chosen from the brook with which powerless David, led only by his faith in the power of God, quickly and easily slew powerful Goliath (1 Samuel 17:40
Addition of the new set of Gospel Mysteries
("Luminous Mysteries") destroys The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary)
by destroying connection with Psalms (200 ??? instead of 150 Psalms), by destruction of paying honour to the 3 Divine Persons i.e. to God (4 ??? instead of 3 Divine Persons), to the hour of The Redemption (20 ??? instead of 15 hours) etc.;
If you want to know more about this attempt to destroy The Mary's Psalter you must read this
no other prayer prayed in the form of one set of The Mysteries of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) as e.g. "Rosary" of Divine Mercy etc. has the depth, the richness and the power of The Mary's Psalter over Satan and thus cannot replace The Mary's Psalter! It is a huge and very costly mistake, not without suggestion of Satan himself, to replace praying of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) with any other prayer or devotion;
has 15 magnificent promises ("15 promises of The Rosary (The Mary's Psalter)" which is obviously due to the 15 Gospel Mysteries of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary): another reason against praying of the newly introduced 4th set of Gospel Mysteries
Top of page
the 15 promises of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) regard both temporal and eternal welfare of all humans who pray The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary)
the 15 promises of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) are obviously for all humans who pray The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) and thus aren't only for Catholic believers
the 8th i.e. the central of the 15 promises states: "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.
** - the 15 promises of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) were given to Alan de la Roche who insisted on the name "The Mary's Psalter" and was objecting to the name "The Rosary"; thus it seems that the words "my Psalter" were changed into "The Rosary";
Plenitude of graces and paradise indicate forgiveness of all debts of sin (Matthew 6:12
) and entrance into Heaven without paying the debts by the Purgatorial fire (Matthew 12:32
; 1 Corinthians 3:15

The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) must be prayed with a short imagination of the Mystery during praying of Its text to have an effect
The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) doesn't have to be prayed in one piece and can be finished at any time
it is essential that one intends to finish praying of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) or Its third (one set of The five Mysteries): because no one can bind anyone with a broken lasso or with just a piece of it
it isn't necessary that The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) be prayed with The Rosary beads: in a city rush one can pray it by counting prayers in his mind or on his fingers, keeping them in his pocket for example
because of its connection to devotion to The Immaculate Heart of Mary (see above the promise for the devotion), which was proclaimed by The-Church-approved apparitions of Fatima, The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) is to be prayed with these two Fatima prayers:
- "O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
- "O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need.".
In Fatima The Blessed Virgin Mary requested: let each day everyone prays one third of Her Psalter i.e. one of the three sets of the Gospel Mysteries of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) for peace in the world: see above what happens if you pray anything except The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary);
Objection: "Fatima is private revelation and thus cannot be obligatory for salvation. Only public revelation (which is The Bible) is obligatory for salvation."
Reply to Objection: Devotion to The Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ is entirely from private revelation. Whoever dies in rejection of devotion to The Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ perishes. Does anyone still want to claim that none
of The Church-approved private revelations is obligatory for salvation?
In the same way whoever dies in rejection of devotion to The Immaculate Heart of Mary, proclaimed in the private revelation of Fatima, perishes.
And whoever rejects to obey The Mother of God, that is, to pray The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) daily sins at least venially and deprives himself of the mightiest protection from Satan and his legions (Mark 5:9; Luke 8:30); such a human is very likely to become devils' prey;
besides saying the general intention (the first Fatima prayer above) one ought to follow it by thinking of his own special intentions to offer Jesus and Mary: not having it is the mistake most often made so that one doesn't benefit from The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) as much as they could
the essence or form of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary), Its sets of Gospel Mysteries, Its prayers, number of its prayers etc. must not be changed for any reason whatsoever;
Otherwise, The Bible connection and connection with Divine Mysteries shall vanish, that shall not be The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) but shall be a worthless counterfeit of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary), that man-made prayer shall have no effect of The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) and the promises attached to The Mary's Psalter (The Rosary) shall not apply
