Do you wish you could make a habit of the Rosary?

If you're halfway through this Month of the Rosary and still holding back, we might have the solution.

You’ve heard that Sr. Lucia, who saw Our Lady at Fatima, says there is a “new efficacy” granted to the Rosary for our times.

The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given new efficacy in the recitation of the Holy Rosary. She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families … that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.

And you know that the popes have said over and over — and over — that the Rosary is a key to everything from family harmony to world peace.
