Our Lord and our Blessed Mother ask us numerous times in the True Life in God (TLIG) messages to pray the Holy Rosary every day, to feel the mysteries, to see them through our Holy Mother’s eyes.
How blessed we are to have been invited to partake in the plan of salvation by praying this simple prayer in obedience to Their will.
In the TLIG message of Nov. 16, 1988, our Lord says: pray often, pray daily the Holy Rosary, for this little chain shall be The Chain in which Satan will be chained and conquered! Vassula explains: I think that when Scripture says that Satan will be chained (Rv. 20:2), I think it will be when all humanity will recite the Holy Rosary, the whole globe. When this day comes, Satan will be conquered and crushed, by “the chain” of the Rosary.
If our earthly Mom asked us to join her in preparing the evening meal each day by peeling the potatoes or setting the table, we would do so joyfully. Think of how much greater the joy in our hearts will be when we answer the urgent call of our Lord and our Blessed Mother to pray the Rosary.
Our Lord says in the TLIG message of June 2, 1988: learn the Holy Rosary, embellish My Church. Vassula explains: The Lord means that the Orthodox and Protestants and other Churches who do not pray the Holy Rosary should learn it, thus enriching the Holy Church and banishing the devil, crushing him; heresy will diminish as well as apostasy in the Church which has infiltrated because of the unfaithfulness and disobedience.
Our Blessed Mother, the Mother of our Lord, is intercessor to Her Son for Her children. Jesus’ Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are so united in their perfect unity that they become One. Jesus cannot deny His Mother anything. When we pray, we can ask Mary, full of grace, to intercede to Jesus for us.
Jesus says: have you not noticed how My Heart melts and favours always Her Heart? how can this Heart, who bore your King, be denied anything She asks from Me? all the faithful bless Her Heart for in blessing Her Heart you will be blessing Me. (TLIG – March 20, 1996)
In a TLIG message given on Aug. 2, 1991, our Lady tells us that prayer is the answer to our problems: pray, My beloved ones, pray without cease; your answer to your problems can be found in a constant prayer; let this be your weapon, pray with your heart, dialogue with God in this way – Satan flees every time you invoke God with love, so today, tomorrow and always, I will say to you: pray, pray, pray; My Love for you is great.
May 13, 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the first Fatima apparition of our Blessed Mother. Our Lord mentions Fatima in the True Life in God messages many times. In the June 10, 1988 TLIG message, our Blessed Mother says that at Fatima, She appeared as the Lady of the Rosary. And, on Aug. 9, 1988, our Holy Mother says again in a TLIG message: I, Vassula, am the Lady of the Rosary. When Vassula asked our Holy Mother why She presented Herself in this way, if there was a special note in Her message, Our Lady responded: yes, all that I have said at Fatima will be accomplished before the end of this era.
During the third apparition on July 13, 1917, our Lady of Fatima requested that we say the following prayer at the end of each decade of the Rosary: “Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy.”
Jesus says: soon, the empire of the Evil one will be broken up and his sovereignty will be uprooted by the powerful Hand of Mary;6 …I suffice by Myself, as you know, but it is through Mary’s Virginal Heart that My Redemptive plan began, and it will be again through this Holy Heart that I will accomplish My Salvation plan. (TLIG – April 3, 1996)
6 Fatima’s message: “In the end My Heart will triumph.”
Let us pray our daily Rosary with love and joy. And, as Jesus reminds us in TLIG, do not save our Rosary until midnight.
