From the first days Our Lady has warned mankind about Satan’s existence and that he is active like never before in his effort to frustrate God’s plan.
She says: “My dear children! Satan is so strong and with all his might wants to disturb my plans which I have begun with you. You pray, just pray and don’t stop for a minute!”
She understands that without prayer we will fall prey to the devil’s powerful seductions that are found in “Worldliness” and this is why she is constantly urging us to pray.
She knows that Satan is afraid of the power of prayer, especially the rosary.
She says: “ God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives.
Father Gabriel Armoth (R.I.P.) who battled demons for most of his life says that Satan himself told him during an exorcism that “ I AM AFRAID WHEN YOU USE THE MADONNA’S NAME. If Christians knew the power of the Rosary, it would be the end of me!’
In his book The Last Exorcist, Fr. Amorth reports an entire dialogue he had, in his role as exorcist, with the devil.
Father Amorth: “What are the virtues of the Madonna that make you the angriest?”
Demon: “She makes me angry because she is the humblest of all creatures, and because I am the proudest; because she is the purest of all creatures, and I am not; because, of all creatures, she is the most obedient to God, and I am a rebel!”
Father Amorth: “Tell me the fourth characteristic of the Madonna that makes you so afraid of her that you are more afraid when I say the Madonna’s name than when I say the name of Jesus Christ!”
Demon: “I am more afraid when you say the Madonna’s name, because I am more humiliated by being beaten by a simple creature, than by Him…”
Father Amorth: “Tell me the fourth characteristic of the Madonna that makes you most angry!”
Demon: “Because she always defeats me, because she was never compromised by any taint of sin!”
“During an exorcism,” Father Amorth remembers, “Satan told me, through the possessed person, ‘Every Hail Mary of the Rosary is a blow to the head for me;
Mary is a creature like us, but, having been elevated to be the Mother of God, she has extraordinary power.
Also for this reason I ask the persons who assist me to pray the Rosary.
I would add that the Rosary, being the prayer most appreciated by our Lady, is an extremely powerful arm against the devil, and I warmly recommend it to anyone suffering from spiritual evils.
This prayer has, in fact, a strong power of protection and liberation from evil. One day Sister Lucia, a seer of Fátima, revealed that God has conferred a power so great on the Rosary that there is no evil—personal, family, or social—that cannot be defeated by its recitation with faith.
Pray to the Holy Spirit for my Son to be impressed within you. Pray that you can be apostles of the divine light in this time of darkness and hopelessness. This is the time of your trial. With a rosary in hand and love in the heart set out with me.
