In Latin

WHY the daily rosary?

Our Lady has 117 titles. She selected this title at Fatima:
“I am the Lady of the Rosary”.

St. Francis de Sales said the greatest method of praying
IS – Pray the Rosary.

St. Thomas Aquinas preached 40 straight days in Rome,
Italy on just the Hail Mary.

St. John Vianney, patron of priests, was seldom seen without a rosary in his hand.

“The rosary is the scourge of the devil” – Pope Adrian VI.

“The rosary is a treasure of graces” – Pope Paul V.

Padre Pio the stigmatic priest said: “The rosary is THE WEAPON”

Pope Leo XIII wrote 9 encyclicals on the rosary.

Pope John XXIII spoke 38 times about our Lady and the Rosary. He prayed 15 decades daily.

St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort wrote:
“The rosary is the most powerful weapon to touch the
Heart of Jesus, Our Redeemer, who so loves His Mother.”

If you wish to obtain a favor: –
Pray THE “54-day ROSARY NOVENA”…
Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas – 27 days of petition;
Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas – 27 days of thanksgiving.

Will you give 1% of 1440 minutes each day to God?
If so, pray the daily rosary in 15 minutes – 1% of 24 hours.

Later on, give 3% and pray entire 15 decade rosary.
Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries.

The History of the Rosary

1. The Combat Rosary

The Combat Rosary is based upon the original pull chain rosary that was commissioned and procured by, believe it or not, the U.S. government and issued by the military, upon request, to soldiers serving in World War I. Some of these rosaries were also seen in WWII. Veterans recognize them as “Service Rosaries.” This Combat Rosary’s use of the Pardon Crucifix, Miraculous Medal and St. Benedict Medal makes it a powerful spiritual assault weapon against evil forces attempting to separate us from the love of God and His will for our lives. While so many rosaries today break easily, the Combat Rosary was made tough to endure.

Combat Rosary® Description

  • This is the “authentic” Combat Rosary® originally designed by Father Richard Heilman, who was inspired to design this Combat Rosary® based on the 1916 WWI US Government military issue pull chain service rosary.
  • Others have, sadly, lifted Father Heilman’s intellectual property by exactly duplicating Father Heilman’s Combat Rosary®, including the name itself.
  • Father Heilman’s “authentic” Combat Rosary® has a greater feel, weight and sturdiness than imitations.
  • Father Heilman designed this Combat Rosary® to use the most powerful of sacramentals by adding the Miraculous Medal, Benedict Medal and Pardon Crucifix, which makes it a powerful spiritual assault weapon against evil forces.
  • The Pontifical Swiss Guard (who guard the Pope) now, daily, carries Father Heilman’s authentic Gun Metal Combat Rosary®, as their official rosary.
  • This authentic Combat Rosary® comes in four colors: Silver, Gold, Bronze and Gun Metal.
  • This authentic Combat Rosary® includes a “Combat Rosary Concealed Carry Card” that is a humorous way to remind us that, as Padre Pio says, this is a mighty weapon against the power of Satan.
  • This authentic Combat Rosary® includes a business card size (for your wallet to have handy to give to a priest) “Exorcism & Blessing of the Medal of St. Benedict” and the “Traditional Rosary Blessing.”
  • NOW INCLUDES the new pocket sized Genuine Lambskin Leather Combat Pouch! 
  • All packed in a really cool Spiritual Ammo Tin.
  • This authentic Combat Rosary® is among the strongest rosaries ever created, which includes double split ring connectors.
