Living Rosary is not a new devotion, but a continuation of the
Rosary preached by St. Dominic and announced by Our Lady for centuries.
The Living Rosary Association was founded by Pauline Marie Jaricot,
who is also the foundress of the Society of the Propagation of
the Faith. The indulgences granted to this simple devotion include
all those of the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary and more!
these days of evil, confusion, division, and modernism, what a
mighty force for good the Living Rosary will be in every family,
diocese and country! We battle today not the evil of man but the
principalities and powers of all hell. A gift of the Queen of
Heaven, the Holy Rosary prayed faithfully, strengthened by the
unity of association, will render all the attacks of Satan impotent.
Let us unite with one purpose, spirit and prayer. The intentions
of the Universal Living Rosary Association are:
Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the honor of St. Philomena
our patroness and protectress.

your daily mystery faithfully for the remainder of your life.
These obligations do not bind under pain of sin, but your effort
and desire to remain faithful are necessary. Your decade may be
offered at any time of the day or night. A regular quarterly newsletter,
"Dedicated Decades," is posted to every member.
Living Rosary Association began its revival on December 8, 1986,
with 30 local members. Blessed 1000-fold by Our Lady and under
the powerful patronage of St. Philomena, the membership is now
at 1,000,000 and has been planted in every Continent of the world.
Over 3/4 of the membership lies in foreign and Third World countries.
Each member is asked to voluntarily give a small monthly donation.
We have no other financial support than yours. The funds received
are then placed right back into the work to spread the devotion,
mail sacramentals to the missions and maintain the Center. If
you cannot donate financially, then we ask you to pray fervently
that our material needs are met.

comfort and consolation. I am a Franciscan Friar and live in Jerusalem

at the very place where Our Lord Jesus Christ died and rose again.
This is the hope that I send unto you today - the hope, which
far surpasses all our earthly understanding and will allow you
to strive for peace and justice. Christ has conquered death as
surely as you will triumph over the evils, which confront you.

you will be remembered at the altar and brought before the throne
of God. May my poor prayers be heard on high for your safety and
protection! Each day as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered,

Believe me, from this holy place, you will soon begin to feel
grace and comfort that the Mass offers you.
