Life of Prayer, use of the Rosary, the power of the Image, and protection of the Scapular.
The Blessed Mother says: –
“Have no fear. You must concentrate only on the book I have given you. Delete nothing providence has revealed to you. St. Joseph will guard it in purity and I will guard it in maternity. It will be a star that will shine for all the world to see and a fresh breeze blowing through the church. Never before in the history of the church have I blessed such a book as I have the one I have given you”.
Truly my Image is the Mediatrix of all Graces. Pray! Pray! In prayer you will obtain everything”. This book is very precious. It is our tangible link with our Blessed Mother in Heaven. It is not meant to read the book from front to back. The way to use this book is as our Our Lady has said, “pray before reading my messages”. Say a prayer, any prayer of your choice, then open the book at random. Read the “Pearl” on the even numbered page. That is the main point of the message, which Our Lady wishes to impart. Find the particular text in the dated message on the opposite page and read the message through for that date. You may need to go to the previous page for the start of the message. There may also be additional paragraphs following the message without a “Pearl” (that is a paragraph without a phrase in bold or thickened typescript). They are also part of the initial message you have opened and received. These messages can also be highly relevant. It is also suggested, that you use the book when saying the Rosary, reading one message between each decade.
This book is also a great comfort when you are particularly worried or upset about events in your life, as Our Lady has said, “When you need Me, open the book.” Once you obtain the Book turn towards the last pages (page 412 of the most recent English version) and it will tell you how to pray the Rosary in the spirit of our Lady’s message to the world. The Image of the Divine Mother of Mercy brings peace and calm into your life. We strongly urge you to look and venerate at it at least once a day. This is what the Holy Mother has to say about Her image, “Pray where the image is exposed and venerated, My Immaculate Heart will bestow many graces of conversion. Do not let a day go by without at least turning once to the image praying.” Following is what the Merciful Madonna says about the Scapular, “My little one! To all who wear this Scapular faithfully, I promise to grant before they die , the last sacraments of the Church. This shall be the sign of your consecration to my Immaculate Heart.”
There are quite a few references to the Rosary devotion in our Lady’s Messages of Mercy and grace. Should you wish to know more, please consult the links below. Just remember, the Holy Mother wants first and foremost prayer from your heart. Dare to pray to Her like a trusting and loving child to the Most Compassionate Mother that She is.
