When Saint Dominic was preaching the Rosary near Carcassone, an Albigensian was brought to him who was possessed by the devil. Saint Dominic exorcised him in the presence of a great crowd of people; it appears that over twelve thousand had come to hear him preach.During the exorcism, the demon was forced to speak the following about devotion to the Mother of God: “Listen well, you Christians: the Mother of Jesus Christ is all-powerful, and She can save Her servants from falling into hell. She is the Sun which destroys the darkness of our wiles. It is She who uncovers our hidden plots, breaks our snares, and makes our temptations useless and ineffectual.“We have to say, however reluctantly, that not a single soul who has really persevered in Her service has ever been damned with us; one single sigh that She offers to the Blessed Trinity is worth far more than all the prayers, desires, and aspirations of all the saints.“We fear Her more than all the other saints in Heaven together, and we have no success with Her faithful servants. Many Christians who call upon Her when they are in the hour of death, and who really ought to be damned according to our ordinary standards, are saved by Her intercession.“Oh, if only that Mary (it is thus in their fury that they called Her) had not pitted Her strength against ours and had not upset our plans, we should have conquered the Church and should have destroyed it long before this, and we would have seen to it that all of the Orders in the Church fell into error and disorder.“Now that we are forced to speak, we must also tell you this: nobody who perseveres in saying the Rosary will be damned, because She obtains for Her servants the grace of true contrition for their sins, and by means of this they obtain God's forgiveness and mercy.”

Hello from Australia!
We also have been inspired by initially seeing images from Poland last year and then Ireland so a MEN’S ROSARY CRUSADE has started here in Sydney, Australia on the ‘First Saturday of the Month’ as per Our Lady of Fatima’s request.
Our first gathering had 30 men attend, second had 60 men and our third gathering last Saturday had more than 120 men and their sons in attendance.
We hope we can all join in prayer and inspire other men from other cities and countries to do the same.
Here are some photos from Sydney on Saturday, March 5 – https://www.facebook.com/maximusmensydney

"...Given the success of this initiative in Ireland and Poland, organizers of the Men’s Rosary are optimistic about a revival of traditional values and ethos and halting the criminalization of masculinity by modern ideologies. They are hopeful of making the Rosary service a monthly affair with wider participation. It will also be a bold reply to the modern-day trend to keep religion and piety a strictly personal affair..."
