t. Louis de Montfort, one of the greatest Marian saints of all times, answers that question for us. Have you read his answer? Read on and find out why his answer is actually the secret to sanctity.

e all need to know the reasons WHY we should pray the Rosary. For all the many powerful admonitions to pray the Rosary will have no effect on us if we do not understand WHY we should. And that is where St. Louis De Montfort's seemingly miraculous little book, "THE SECRET OF THE ROSARY," enters the picture. Lives have been changed, Faith given, miraculous things occurred with the reading of this Little book by this great Saint that is now readily available to all. At TAN Books "The Secret of the Rosary" has now sold over 5,200,000 copies in its present pocketbook English - all since 1965.

t. Louis de Montfort tells us: "The holy rosary is a gift come down from Heaven; a great present that God gives to His most faithful servants. God is the Author of the prayers of which it is composed and of the mysteries it contains. "

veryone who reads this book derives some good from it. And we can reread it many times during a lifetime and still obtain great inspiration from it.

e are fast approaching the Year 2000. One is forced to ask, "whar kind of an era will it be?" Will the new millennium be a time of continued sin and secularization, or will it be a millennium of the Faith? A Marian Millennium where the Mother of God triumphs over the enemies of the Church and the world, as She predicted She will? When we will see the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary?

ur Blessed Mother told St. Dominic, "One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world. " Venerable Jacinta Marto of Fatima said to Lucia: "Tell everyone that God grants us graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; that people are to ask for them. Tell them to ask graces from Her and that the Heart of Jesus wants the Immaculate Heart of Mary to be venerated at His side. Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her. ''

hat better way then, to beseech (Our Lady) for peace and for help than by praying the Rosary? Our Lady of Fatima said "Pray the Rosary every day for peace. " But how shall we know WHY we should pray the Rosary, unless we leam about its power and its secrets; plus, how shall we know HOW to recite it effectively and fervently without help?

Let's blanket the world with this book while there is still time. Why should we go on letting the devil win the day when we have at hand a tool to thwart his efforts.
