Amazing Results

My Rosary post today at Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering is a true story about how Mary’s intercession can often have amazing results.

“The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you’ll be amazed at the results.” St. Josemaria Escriva

Although I grew up in a Catholic family, I learned how to say the rosary at school. My father often said the rosary in private, but we never recited the rosary as a family and I rarely said the rosary on my own before the age of 11. One evening, however, my parents were involved in a violent argument. It was my first experience at being “amazed at the results” of the powerful weapon of the holy rosary. The following is an excerpt from my novel, Emily’s Hope (www.emilyshope.com). It’s based on actual events and is a true illustration of Our Lady’s powerful intercession.

I listen as my parents are fighting again, fighting over bills they can’t pay. Each time my mom yells, my dad yells louder. Dad starts to throw things, not at Mom, just throwing things. I’m scared. It makes me feel anxious to see the two people I love most in the world screaming at each other. Don’t they love each other, I ask myself. Why won’t they stop yelling?
