A 54 Day Rosary Novena
will be prayed for Families
and their Parishes
Please tell your family members and others that a 54 day Rosary Novena
will be prayed for all families and their Parishes!
There are four petitions: that all family members imitate the Holy Family;
for all family members whom are sick or whom may die throughout the year, that
they may have a holy death; for families to receive the graces needed to recite
the Most Holy Rosary, daily; and for all parishes to recite the Most Holy Rosary
before and/or after the daily Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
It will begin on January 31st (Feast of Saint John Bosco) and will
end on March 25th (Annunciation of Our Lady).
We hope and pray you and others will unite with us in this 54 day Rosary Novena
for Families and their Parishes.
The greater the response of those committing themselves in the recitation of the
Most Holy Rosary for Families, the greater the blessings will be for everyone.
Mary Untier of Knots
by Johann Georg Schmidtner; c. 1700;
Church of St. Peter in Perlack, Augsburg, Germany
"Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it."
Saint Irenaeus (Bishop of Lyon and martyred in 202)
There are the problems and struggles we face for which we do not see any
solution ... knots of discord in your family, lack of understanding between
parents and children, disrespect, violence, the knots of deep hurts between
husband and wife, the absence of peace and joy at home. There are also the knots
of anguish and despair of separated couples, the dissolution of the family, the
knots of a drug addict son or daughter, sick or separated from home or God, knots
of alcoholism, the practice of abortion, depression, unemployment, fear,
solitude ... Ah, the knots of our life! How they suffocate the soul, beat us down and
betray the heart’s joy and separate us from God.
Day after day, more and more Christians kneel to pray to Her as soon as they meet
the Mother of the Fair Love. Many families have become reconciled! Many diseases
have been healed! Many spouses have returned to the Church! Many jobs have been given!
Many conversions have taken place! Many Catholics have been on their knees praying
and giving thanks for graces received from our sweet Mother. For that reason, Mary
Who undoes the knots, Who was chosen by God to crush the evil with Her feet, comes
to us to reveal Herself. She comes to provide jobs, good health, to reconcile
families, because She wants to undo the knots of our sins which dominate our
lives, so that – as sons of the King – we can receive the promises reserved for us
from eternity. She comes with promises of victory, peace, blessings and reconciliation.
Then, free from our knots – filled with happiness, we can be a testimony of the
Divine Power in this world, like pieces of God’s heart or small bottles of perfume
exhaling mercy and love to our neighbor. Like ambassador of Jesus Christ and the
Virgin of the fair love, we can rescue those who cry without any consolation, those
who are lonely, tied with knots, who have no God, no Father nor Mother.
Mother of the Rising Sun, Immaculate, our Advocate, Helper in moments of affliction,
Mother of God and made by Him our Mother, this is how Mary, Undoer of Knots is
presented. Above all, She comes as the Queen of Mercy, the one who knows all about us,
who has compassion for us and hurries to rescue us, praying for each one of us to
Her beloved Jesus.
THE MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY
"The Holy Rosary recited together with meditation on the sacred mysteries is a sacrifice of praise to God to
thank Him for the grace of our redemption."
Saint Louis De Monfort
"I look to all of you, brothers and sisters of every state of life, to you, Christian families, to you, sick
and the elderly, and to you, young people, confidently take up the Rosary once again .... May this appeal of mine
not go unheard!"
Pope Saint John Paul II
"Blessed Alan says that a certain Cardinal Pierre, whose titular Church was that of
St. Mary-beyond-the-Tiber, was a great friend of Saint Dominic’s and had learned from
him a deep devotion to the Most Holy Rosary. This resulted in his loving it so much
that he never ceased singing its praises and encouraging everyone he met to embrace it.
Eventually he was sent to Legate to the Holy Land to the Christians who were fighting
the Saracens. So successfully did he convince the Christian army of the power of the
Rosary that they started saying it one and all to storm heaven for help in a battle
in which they knew they would be pitifully outnumbered. This resulted in victory for
them, and three thousand Christians triumphed over an enemy of one hundred thousand."
From The Secret of the Rosary by Saint Louis De Montfort
Background of the 54 Day Novena
The "54-day Rosary Novena" is an uninterrupted series of
Rosaries in honor of Our Lady, revealed to the incurably sick
Fortuna Agrelli by Our Lady of Pompeii at Naples in 1884.
For thirteen months Fortuna Agrelli had endured dreadful sufferings
and torturous cramps; she had been given up by the most
celebrated physicians. On February 16, 1884, the afflicted girl
and her relatives commenced a novena of Rosaries.
The Queen of the Holy Rosary favoured her with an apparition on March
3rd. Mary, sitting upon a high throne, surrounded by luminous
figures, held the divine Child on her lap, and in her hand a
The Virgin Mother and the holy Infant were clad in
gold-embroidered garments. They were accompanied by St.
Dominic and St. Catherine of Siena. The throne was profusely
decorated with flowers; the beauty of Our Lady was marvelous.
Blessed Virgin said: "Child, thou has invoked me by various
titles and hast always obtained favours from me. Now, since
thou hast called me by that title so pleasing to me, 'Queen of
the Holy Rosary,' I can no longer refuse the favour thou dost
petition; for this name is most precious and dear to me. Make
three novenas, and thou shalt obtain all."
Once more the Queen of the Holy Rosary appeared to her and said,
"Whoever desires to obtain favours from me should make three novenas
of the prayers of the Rosary, and three novenas in thanksgiving."
