OCTOBER - MONTH OF MARY
The Fifteen Promises of Mary
Granted to Those Who
Recite the Rosary
5. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
