The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary and the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is Oct. 7th.

The Rosary brings us closer to Our Lord by allowing us to meditate on His life through the eyes of His Holy Mother. Each prayer and mystery is rooted in scripture.

You can find a how-to guide for praying the Rosary here.

According to sacred tradition, the Blessed Virgin Mary gave 15 promises to Blessed Alan de la Roche and Saint Dominic.

Below are the 15 Promises of the Virgin Mary to those who faithfully pray the Rosary:

1. To all those who shall pray my Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and great graces.

2. Those who shall persevere in the recitation of my Rosary will receive some special grace.

3. The Rosary will be a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin, and dispel heresy.

4. The Rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.

5. Those who trust themselves to me through the Rosary will not perish.
