Whoever calls to me – I am with him.  A call to me is never in vain.  I come always with an abundance of grace and the great love of my maternal Heart.  #15

My heart is overfilled with love and therefore, I bring the Rosary.  #15

I ask for the Rosary. I urge that it would be said well so that in each mystery faith would be strengthened and confirmed in us, until there is such a Rosary that will crumble rocks and will work miracles easily.   #15 

The Rosary is necessary to say that the more you know it - the more you love it and the more you love it - the more you know it.  Its power is immense.  #16

The Rosary, such a gift of the Mother of God is above all her devotions it is indispensable so truth will penetrate into life.  #16

I am the Queen of the Rosary.  The Rosary is my inheritance.  The Rosary is victorious because such is the
Holy Will of God.   #17

The Rosary is an incentive to the carrying of the victory. The Rosary is the barrier, the obstacle against the fires of hell.  #17

We have to draw near to God Who is, and Who endures.  In Him is peace and in Him is the fullness of all we need, so that these changing times do not carry us off. That means to preserve in peace amid change.  The acceptance of this peace is obedience.  We have the assistance of the Rosary.  #18

The Rosary gives everything; it arranges points and leads and therefore it is very necessary.  #18/p36

The Rosary is the weapon for the struggle, and the consolation in repose. #8 pg27

The Rosary is the spring, which does not dry up–the inexhaustible source of grace. #8

The Rosary is the condition of victory. #8

Rosary quotes from the book “SECRETS OF THE ROSARY” By a Polish Blessed Soul, from Our Lady.


The Rosary should be the joy of your hearts, the light of your minds, and the desire of your wills, the fire uniting you and welding you with Heaven.  From you there is only required: accept it pray it, in a humbled and pious disposition, effort in concentration and prayer. #1

The Rosary is the unfathomable mine of hidden treasures I am giving to you through my Immaculate Hands. #1

To profit from the Rosary it is necessary to have faith, which quickly turns into the joy of the experience. #1

He who finds me finds life and attains salvation from the Lord. #8

The Rosary is the search for my Son and me. #8

I am entirely in the Rosary; there seek me there find me.

A reminder and encouragement, is to impel a greater zeal in praying the Rosary.

Each mystery meditated upon has its own power and purpose. 

All fifteen together is an army called to battle array under my reign.

Rosaries have to be more and better, in order to spread open the floodgates of the graces of my Immaculate Heart of Gold, soon to be triumphant.

I am near to all who call on me in spirit and truth.                                                                           

Look for me on the ways of the Savior. It is precisely in the Rosary that you do this. The Rosary is an endeavor, with the ultimate purpose of saving soulsThe sanctification of life is by means of the Rosary.
The Rosary is truth and proclaims the truth and combats for truth. 

Whoever loves the Rosary loves truth and through me in saying it piously, finds truth. I am the shortest way to the Truth, to the Son, and to God. The Rosary gives this. I call and beg so much for the Rosary. For that reason it is so combated – just the Rosary.
Through saying the Rosary truth penetrated into the soul because the mind and heart acts keeping tis self near the Mother and Son as well as their friends who are in each mystery.
