May 13, 1917

Consecrate Russia.  Say the Rosary.  Repent of your sins.  Spread devotion to My Immaculate Heart. 

How much clearer can Our Lady be?  We often complain that if only Our Lady would appear to the world, everyone would finally hit that "aha!" moment, and change their lives.  But She has come, and she has spoken so plainly, it can't be simplified any more than it already is! 

Consecrate Russia = Peace
Say the Rosary= Peace
Repent of your sins, avoid Hell= Peace
Devotion to My Immaculate Heart=Peace

So why are we STILL refusing to gratify Her pleas?  Why do we STILL remain in our ignorance, in our slothfulness, in our laziness?  Why do we STILL skip daily Rosaries, our greatest and most powerful weapon on this earth?

The soldier prepares for battle.  He's ready to fight, he's ready to lay down his life for his country.  When he's offered his sword, he laughs and say..."Oh! I don't need that...I'll be fine."  Unfortunate soul when he gets to the thick of battle and does not have his sword to fight with.

That's how we are.  How do we expect to survive in this battle against Satan, if we leave our most powerful and most necessary weapon behind us?  That Rosary should be in our car, in our pockets/purse, in our homes, near our bed...wherever we'll use it the most.  It should be on hand to grab at a moment's notice if temptation arises.  And not to be displayed as jewelry, or a "see how holy I am because i have a Rosary hanging from my car?"  It should be used.  It is our Spiritual Weapon handed directly from Our Lady, and MUST be an integral part of our day.

"I am the Lady of the Rosary" 

Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us!
