Pope Pius XII

“We do not hesitate to affirm publicly that We put great confidence in the Holy Rosary for the healing of evils of our times.”1

“Through your efforts, Venerable Brethren, the Christian people should be led to understand the dignity, the power and the excellence of the Rosary.”2

"There is no surer means of calling down God’s blessing upon the family . . . than the daily recitation of the Rosary.”3

“The home of the Christian family, like that of Nazareth, will become an earthly abode of sanctity, and, so to speak, a sacred temple, where the Holy Rosary will not only be the particular prayer which every day rises to heaven in an odor of sweetness, but will also form the most efficacious school of Christian discipline and Christian virtue.”4
