The Rosary: The Prayer That Saved My Life
A book by Immaculée Ilibagiza
“The rosary is the most excellent form of prayer…It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings.”
—Pope Leo XIII
“The rosary is a tool that focuses our prayers and helps us develop our faith to the point that we can move mountains. It is a tool that will deepen and strengthen our relationship with God, and in doing so all the treasure heaven has to offer can be ours.”
What if you had a lifeline to heaven—a powerful string of ancient beads that, if prayed with faith and sincerity, would bend heaven toward earth? How would your life be different? What would you do, be, accomplish, pray for?
New York Times best-selling author Immaculée Ilibagiza shares in her moving and uplifting book The Rosary how this focused and profound prayer literally saved her life during the horrific 1994 Rwandan genocide, in which her family and more than a million other innocent men, women, and children were brutally murdered. Nearly twenty years later, she continues to pray the rosary every day, marveling at the blessings and miracles it brings to her life.
Immaculée reveals how this prayer’s abundant benefits can be reaped by each and every one of us, regardless of our religious affiliations. Discover through The Rosary the enormous power of the prayer with the same name: power that can change the world; that can defeat evil; and that, perhaps most important of all, can bring a permanent peace to our hearts.
