THE POWER TO CUT OFF THE SEVEN DEADLY HEADS OF THE ANCIENT SERPENT.
With the advent of the Rosary, an entirely new way of praying was given to the world. It would turn every Christian home into a domestic church and catechetical school. The Rosary would give all people, clergy and laity, the ability to wield the sword and slay the dragon on a daily basis.
Praying the Rosary does not require literacy or prestige. The uneducated, the poor, and the young can all pray the Rosary with the same powerful effect as bishops, priests and nuns. The Rosary flows from the doctrine and Sacraments of the Church, and leads back to the doctrine and Sacraments of the Church. For this reason _and many more _the devil knew that when God gave the Rosary to the world, the Catholic Church would effectively launch a worldwide catechetical campaign.
Satan knows what the sword of sacred mysteries is capable of doing. The Rosary _sword has the power to cut off the seven deadly heads of the ancient serpent _the sins of pride, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath and envy. The devil has been striving to destroy the Catholic Church since it’s inception. Therefore, he went on the attack against the new form of prayer given to the world in the Rosary. It didn’t take long before the dragon set fire to the earth in an attempt to rid the world of the divine weapon.
