The Rosary: The Prayer That Saved My Life

The Rosary: The Prayer That Saved My Life 

A book by Immaculée Ilibagiza

“The rosary is the most excellent form of prayer…It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings.”
Pope Leo XIII 

“The rosary is a tool that focuses our prayers and helps us develop our faith to the point that we can move mountains. It is a tool that will deepen and strengthen our relationship with God, and in doing so all the treasure heaven has to offer can be ours.”
Immaculée Ilibagiza

What if you had a lifeline to heaven—a powerful string of ancient beads that, if prayed with faith and sincerity, would bend heaven toward earth? How would your life be different? What would you do, be, accomplish, pray for?

New York Times best-selling author Immaculée Ilibagiza shares in her moving and uplifting book The Rosary how this focused and profound prayer literally saved her life during the horrific 1994 Rwandan genocide, in which her family and more than a million other innocent men, women, and children were brutally murdered. Nearly twenty years later, she continues to pray the rosary every day, marveling at the blessings and miracles it brings to her life.

Immaculée reveals how this prayer’s abundant benefits can be reaped by each and every one of us, regardless of our religious affiliations. Discover through The Rosary the enormous power of the prayer with the same name: power that can change the world; that can defeat evil; and that, perhaps most important of all, can bring a permanent peace to our hearts.

Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
