FEAST OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY – OCTOBER 7TH
On the Feast of our Lady of the Rosary, October 7th, it is important for us to consider the immense treasure of spiritual good that is found in the recitation of the Holy Rosary – especially, the Rosary of the Unborn – and how closely it is associated with Our Lady of the Rosary, who we honor also on this feast day.
In 1571, the Turks of the
of Lepanto. Attributing this success to the intercession of
the Blessed Virgin Mary through the recitation of the Rosary, Pope St. Pius V
instituted the feast of Our Lady of Victory. The next Pope, Gregory XIII,
changed the name to The Most Holy Rosary.
In 1716, again, the army of the Emperor Charles VI under Prince Eugene defeated
the Turks of the Ottoman Empire near
Rosary, as it also became associated with Our Lady of Fatima.
These are all instances in which the power of prayer of the most Holy Rosary have been shown to be most effective in changing the course of events in the world through the conversion of men’s hearts and thus, the conversion of the heart of the world. Such is also the case as we may see in the following messages Blessed Mother and Jesus have given us with regard to the power of the Rosary of the Unborn when prayed from a heart full of Holy Love.
Venerable Pope John Paul II once said in a homily on this day: “It could be said that each mystery of the Holy Rosary, when carefully meditated, sheds light on the mystery of man: ‘cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you,’ as it says in Psalm 55:23. To pray the rosary is to hand over our burdens to the combined merciful hearts of Christ and His Mother. The rosary does indeed ‘mark the rhythm of human life’, bringing it into the joyful communion of the Holy Trinity, Who is our life’s destiny and deepest longing. Through the rosary, the faithful receive abundant graces as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”
Somewhat less than three months prior to 9/11/01, Jesus said the following in a message of May 27, 1999: “For while people did not realize prayer was the answer, and the rosary the weapon of choice, Satan stealthily gained control of countries unwilling to accept Christian standards. Every place you go, every where you speak, you must stress the power of prayer. Encourage my people to pray, even if only a little.”
And then, in a message to “All Peoples and Every Nation” (November 5, 2001), 2 months after 9/11/01, Jesus followed up with the following: “My brothers and sisters, you must not be afraid of Satan’s next move. I tell you that one rosary said from a loving heart is more powerful than any weapon of war. It is the rosary that changes opinions and unscrambles error in hearts. It is Holy Love in your heart, when you pray, that makes your prayers most powerful. These two – Holy Love and the rosary – will bring down Satan’s empire in the end.”
On May 10, 2003, a conference talk regarding the journey of holiness through the Chambers of the United Hearts was given by Maureen. In this talk, inspired by Blessed Mother, she gave examples of messages given her by Jesus regarding the power of prayer and the power of praying the Rosary of the Unborn for the end to abortion and for peace in the world through even just one heart full of Holy Love:

Everything that we do every present moment should come from a heart full of Holy Love. This is the effect of prayer in the present moment. Even one 'Hail Mary' from the heart, then, is priceless in the present moment. As Jesus said on September 18, 1999:
"I have come to speak to you about prayer, and in particular the prayer of the Rosary. I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. So many surrender to prayer without the sentiment of love in their hearts. This weakens the prayer, making it less worthy. Instead, bolster your prayers by recalling the love you have in your heart for Me and My Mother. This allows Me to pour the choicest graces upon you and into your life. Prayer has a cumulative effect. I know ahead of time how many prayers will be offered for each petition. Therefore, you never know what just one more 'Hail Mary' will bring. One 'Hail Mary' said with a loving heart has the power to stop wars, bring nature into harmony with God's plan, convert an unbeliever, save a vocation, deliver a soul from purgatory, and change the future forever. Think, then, of the power of a whole Rosary said with love. Satan knows that the Rosary is the weapon which will bring about his defeat. This is why he is desperate to discourage its use. Every time you recite a 'Hail Mary' from the heart, the
devil is weakened forever in some area and in some soul. You must never be discouraged, then, in praying the Rosary. When your heart is most filled with distraction, understand the adversary is frightened of your prayers. The Heart of My Mother is consoled by your efforts in prayer. She is most indebted to the ones who persevered in a regimen of prayer despite opposition and distraction. Make it known."
On October 7, 2004, Jesus said: “I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. I have come to help you understand the length and breadth of My Father's Divine Will for you. My Father is the author of every present moment. He is the Creator of man's free will. Think of the joy in all of Heaven when a breath is drawn and the tongue given over to prayer--the prayer of the Holy Rosary. All of Heaven sighs with joy when free will surrenders to the Divine in this way. When the 'Hail Mary' is being prayed from the heart, time stands suspended between Heaven and earth. Angels carry the light of grace back and forth between Heaven and earth, creating a bridge of light between the soul and his Creator. Such a soul is never alone, but has in his company all the Heavenly court.”
On October 7, 1996, Maureen had a vision after receiving communion of our Lady holding a Rosary. Her description of this vision was as follows: “After Communion I had the following vision. I saw a Rosary with a broken cord. The beads were slipping off the end of the cord and falling into space. Then the beads disappeared. I heard Our Lady say: "These are the Rosaries that you have time to say but never say. Next, I saw a rosary with only a few beads on it. Our Lady said: "These are the Rosaries you say amongst great distraction." Then I saw a full set of rosary beads. It was encircling the globe. Our Lady said: "These are the prayers you say from your heart. With them, I am able to convert sinners. I desire that you make your prayers global prayers. Pray for all sinners. This way I can bind all nations to My Immaculate Heart." By this I knew in my heart She wanted me say the Father Gobbi prayer at the beginning of the Rosary saying, "Celestial Queen, with this Rosary I bind all sinners and all nations to Your Immaculate Heart."
The following messages given on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th) in subsequent years often emphasized the power of the most Holy Rosary, and especially, the Rosary of the Unborn (ROU), to effect change in the culture and in world events through conversion of hearts and conversion of the heart of the world. This became especially evident when Blessed Mother gave the world the design and prayers for the ROU on October 7, 1997:
October 7, 1997 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary Our Lady comes in white. In front of Her and suspended in the air is an unusual rosary. The Our Fathers' are crosses of drops of blood. The Hail Marys' are tear drops with unborn babies inside of them. The cross is gleaming gold. Our Lady says: "I come in praise of Jesus, My Son. I come as Prophetess of these times." The Rosary you see is Heaven's way of describing to you the weapon that will overcome this evil of abortion. Heaven weeps for the cost of this great sin. The history and the future of all nations have been changed because of this atrocity against God's gift of life. Today, sadly, much responsibility must be placed on the laity who are consecrated to Me. I cannot depend on Church leadership to unite in an effort to vanquish the enemy through the Rosary. Even My apparitions have caused division by Satan's efforts to thwart My plans. So today, on My feast day, I am calling all My children to unite in My Heart. Do not allow pride to divide you according to which apparition you will follow. Become part of the Flame of My Heart. Be united in love and in the prayer weapon of My Rosary. The evil of abortion can be conquered by your efforts and through My grace. Propagate the image I have shown you today."
October 7, 1998 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary
Our Lady comes as Our Lady of Fatima. She spreads Her arms and says: "Praise be to Jesus.” “My angel, take down these words. I wish to speak to you about prayer in general, and the Rosary in particular. Prayer, at its best, is the language of love between God and the soul. The most effective prayer rises from a humble, loving heart. When the soul recognizes its own littleness before God, and at the same time recalls how much he loves God, you can be certain God listens. This is why the Rosary is so powerful, and carries with it so many graces. With the Rosary, whole nations can be reconciled to their Creator. With the golden chain of My Rosary, Satan will be bound and gagged. He will be totally defeated and cast into the depths of hell. Therefore, understand it is always Satan who tries to discourage your recitation of the Rosary. It is through the Rosary that Holy Love takes root in hearts and ignites personal holiness. When you pray the Rosary, meditating upon its mysteries, I am with you. The angels surround you, the heavenly court defends and assists you. My Rosary will defeat Satan and bring peace to hearts and so to the world. I hold special favor in My Heart for those devoted to the Rosary. I encourage the downtrodden, protect the vulnerable, convert the unbeliever -all through My Rosary. My little one, you will please make this known."
October 7, 1999 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary
Our Lady is here as Our Lady of Fatima. She says: "Praise be to Jesus." My dear Missionary Servants, your prayers are important to Me. When you pray you are balancing the scale between good and evil, and I am drawing you into My Heart. But please understand, My dear children, that as each prayer is important, the chain on the rosary that holds the beads together is the Holy Love in your hearts. My little children, come closer to Me through your prayers. Help Me to change the world and to bring an end to the abomination of abortion. Tonight, My dear children, I'm blessing you with My Blessing of Holy Love."
Blessed Mother said “yes” (fiat) to the angel Gabriel and to the Lord in the present moment that she was asked to be the Mother of God and to carry Jesus in her womb by her free choice. Her “yes” was a reflection of her love and her trust in the Lord in every present moment. In a message regarding the Rosary of the Unborn on August 3, 2001, Jesus touched upon this trust in Him based off of love of Him:
"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. Trust in Me. Please tell the world that each 'Our Father' (beads shown to Maureen by Jesus were teardrops of blood in the form of a cross) recited on the Rosary of the Unborn assuages My grieving Heart. Further, it withholds the Arm of Justice. The greatest promise I give you in regards to this rosary is this:
Every rosary prayed from the heart to its completion on these beads (teardrops) mitigates the punishment as yet withstanding for the sin of abortion. I attach this promise to the rosary given directly to you by My Mother, for it is particular to Her design and Her requests. Make it known."
that day: I told Jesus I had a question about the promise He gave concerning
the Rosary of the Unborn.
He finally returned, all aglow. He smiled and said: "I am your Jesus, born
Incarnate. I know your question. Do not bother to speak it. When I say the
punishment as yet withstanding for the sin of abortion, I mean the punishment
each soul deserves for taking part in this sin. Then too, I also refer to the greater
punishment that awaits the world for embracing this sin. Pray from your heart
knowing that your rosary appeases Me."
The power of the Rosary of the Unborn became especially evident early on, as Blessed Mother gave Maureen a message about it on July 2, 2001 –
Our Lady comes as the Sorrowful Mother. She says: “Praise be to Jesus. I see you are using the new Rosary of the Unborn. I affirm to you, my daughter, that each ‘Hail Mary’ prayed from a loving heart will rescue one of these innocent lives from death by abortion. When you use this rosary, call to mind My Sorrowful Immaculate Heart which continually sees the sin of abortion played out in every present moment. I give to you this special sacramental with which to heal My Motherly Heart.” Maureen asks: “Blessed Mother, do you mean any ‘Hail Mary’ or just one prayed on the Rosary of the Unborn?” Blessed Mother says: “This is a special grace attached to this particular rosary. It should always be used to pray against abortion. You will please make this known.” Then on July 2, 2001 in the evening: Blessed Mother is here as Mary Refuge of Holy Love. She is holding the Rosary of the Unborn and says: “Praise be to Jesus.” “You can be confident in using this Rosary and the attached attendant promise I have given you. Do not be abashed (shy) about propagating this message.
February 28, 2005
Jesus says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. What My Mother told you last night concerning the Rosary of the Unborn is this: if a group is gathered who are praying for the unborn from the heart and only one person has in their possession the Rosary of the Unborn, I will honor each 'Hail Mary' from each person in the group as if they were holding the Rosary of the Unborn themselves. In this way I lift the constraint of time which it takes to produce enough rosaries."
Maureen says: "Thank you, Jesus. "
May 13, 2007 – Second Sunday Service to Pray against Abortion; Feast of Our Lady of Fatima - Jesus and Blessed Mother are here. Blessed Mother is dressed as Our Lady of Fatima, and She is holding the Rosary of the Unborn. Both of Their Hearts are exposed. Blessed Mother says: "Praise be to Jesus." Jesus says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate." Jesus: "My brothers and sisters, the Rosary of the Unborn has been given to you as a most powerful weapon against the sin of abortion. Be bold in its propagation. My Arms of Mercy are outstretched towards the world through this Rosary. We're blessing you with Our Blessing of the United Hearts."
October 7 and 8, 2007 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary (and the following day)
St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.” When you pray the Rosary of the Unborn, pray that hearts are convicted in the truth. It is only when the spirit of the world reflects the light of truth that victory will come.”
Jesus says: “I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.” I tell you truly, My Heavenly Father has His Finger on the pulse of the world. The heart of the world will not beat in harmony with His Eternal Heart until all life is respected as His Creation from conception to natural death. Today people do not recognize when life begins and when it ends. Self-love and modern technology have clouded these issues. But Holy Love calls the world back to reality and righteousness. You cannot live outside of My Father’s Will and prosper.” “The Rosary of the Unborn is Heaven’s weapon of choice to break down the barriers of Satan’s lies, and reveal the truth to all people and all nations—one heart at a time. In order for a weapon to be effective, it must be used and knowledge of it must be spread. It is no different with this heavenly weapon Heaven has given you. Satan does not want you to realize the power of this Rosary when you pray from the heart. I am telling you, that the Rosary of the Unborn saves lives!”
October 7, 2008 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary
Blessed Mother says: "Praise be to Jesus." Jesus allows Me to return to you to speak on this--a most important feast day. Your country, and indeed the world, has embarked upon perilous times--perilous because truth is not recognized and My children seek to please themselves instead of God and neighbor. Peace will not come to you through military efforts, weapons of mass destruction or superficial negotiations. Security will not come through new economic programs or stabilization of Wall Street. All of these are contingent upon this:" [She is holding a large teardrop from the Rosary of the Unborn.] "Pray this rosary to bring an end to legalized abortion. The future of the world depends upon it."
May 13, 2009 – Feast of Our Lady of
"Blessed Mother as Our Lady of Fatima says: “I have given the world a very important weapon here in the Rosary of the Unborn; it stops abortions and saves lives. But a weapon is only strong against the enemy if it is put to use. Those who discredit this rosary are responsible for the millions of lives lost by prayers that are never prayed upon it. I remind you--you cannot sit on the fence in spiritual warfare. If you are not fighting the enemy--in this case the sin of abortion with the Rosary of the Unborn--then you are lending strength to evil.”
August 22, 2009 – Feast - Queenship of Mary
Blessed Mother says: "Praise
be to Jesus. I am Mary, Queen of Heaven and of Earth. I am the Guardian of
"The rosary is a universal prayer--a universal call to conversion. Many who are not Catholic pray the rosary with more devotion than those who say they are Catholic. Allow your hearts to be won over by this prayer of the rosary. The world teeters on the brink of disaster. The Hand of Justice resists its rightful position upon the heart of mankind because of the devoted few who pray the rosary often--and well. You will please make these, My words to you, known."
October 7, 2009 – The Feast of the Most Holy Rosary
Blessed Mother says: "Praise be to Jesus." Dear child, tonight, on my Feast of the Most Holy Rosary, I have come as my Son allows to address all peoples and all nations. While the world and its leaders waste valuable present moments attempting to unite under false pretenses, I have come to ask that all unite in an effort of prayer – the prayer of the Rosary. The Rosary, my dear children, leads to peace for it exposes truth and illuminates hearts to follow the path of righteousness which is Holy Love. The Rosary is both armor and a weapon against evil. The Rosary prayed from the heart can redirect free will so that true peace based on Holy Love becomes a goal – not false peace based on disordered self-love. I desire that those of my children truly consecrated to My Immaculate Heart spread the good news of this message far and wide. There is always hope, dear children, so long as there is one person praying the Rosary from the heart.”
October 4, 2010 - Monday Rosary Service: Peace in All Hearts through Holy Love
Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. My brothers and sisters, in order to establish peace in the world, you must first establish peace in the womb. Make it known."
October 7, 2010 - Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
Our Lady is holding the Rosary of the Unborn. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."
"I have come to point out to all mankind that all of My apparitions throughout history are linked with a common theme just as the beads on a rosary are linked. Each time I come, the same purpose is in My Heart - the reconciliation of mankind with God. Each time I appear, it is to draw mankind back to the simple path of prayer, sacrifice and penance. Understanding this should bring new light to the folly of believing in one apparition and not the others. I call all My children to be united in the Divine Will of God which is Divine and Holy Love. It is past time to stop looking for reasons not to believe. I call you to believe. I call you to act upon your belief. Do not say you believe but live as though you never heard My call. This rosary [the Rosary of the Unborn] is the way to end the crimes against the unborn, and to restore the dignity of life in the womb. You no longer have time to judge what I am telling you. Put this rosary to use often throughout the day. Be assured that even your weakest efforts matter. All of Heaven is listening."
October 7, 2010 - Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
"Do you not recognize me? I am your angel Alanus: “Praise be to Jesus. Write down this prayer:"
"O Divine Infant Jesus, present in the womb of Mary at conception
by the power of the Holy Spirit,
present in the crib at
obedience to the Will of God, open the heart of mankind to see that
true peace will only come when there is peace in the womb. Awaken
mankind and help each soul to surrender to the Will of his Divine
October 7, 2010 - Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
Our Lady comes with Her Heart exposed. The Rosary of the Unborn extends from Her Heart down to a globe of the earth. Our Lady says: "All praise be to Jesus.”“ Please understand, My messenger, that this is the prayer [Rosary of the Unborn] which most closely unites the world to My Immaculate Heart. Without this devotion, many evils would have won over hearts and even greater cultural and natural disasters would have pervaded the world. The hour of God's great Mercy would have ended, and the Justice long predicted would have begun. I tell you these things so that you will continue to pray and propagate this devotional with even greater fervor. Make this known."
