The 15 Promises of the Rosary was published by TAN, with an Imprimatur by Patrick J. Hayes, Archbishop of New York on little blue cards.
I'm glad my mother kept one, the promises are so consoling. I copied the text below.
You can also find them in other little booklets.
May is the month of Mary and October is the month of the Holy Rosary, so these are great months to teach your children or increase your devotion.
My parents said the Rosary nearly every day of their married lives and in spite of giant hurdles in life they each died a peaceful death with all of their local children praying the Rosary at their death beds.
Both had lived the evidence of many of the other of these promises by the end of their lives and had then received the sacraments of the Church (Promise number seven) before they passed to eternity. Their dedication to the Mass and the Rosary have to have played a large part in this grace, especially when considering the 6th, 7th, and 8th Promise below.
These Promises were given by the Blessed Virgin Mary herself to St. Dominic and Bl. Alan. The Rosary is one of the most highly indulgenced devotions of the Catholic Church, so I heartily urge you to teach your children to treasure praying it when they are little.
It comes second only behind the Mass and the Office in importance in Catholic prayers, way ahead of the Stations of the Cross.
St. Anne's Helper's Rosary videos of the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary help you meditate on the individual Mysteries of the Rosary as Our Lady asked at Fatima. Use the Catholic Rosary Video with your daily Rosary whether you use it in your living room with the family or set it up on a phone or other mobile device for someone in the hospital.
The images in the video have the words to the prayers and a moving image of which bead to use. The beads turn from blue to magenta to indicate the right prayer, the text of the prayer shows the prayer that is being said, finished beads change to a golden color in honor of the Queen of Heaven, and there is no added music. The images of Jesus and Mary help you meditate on the Mysteries of the Rosary.
Remember that when you promote the Rosary or teach it to others you will receive the benefits mentioned in the Promises of the Rosary. It is my joy to have this opportunity with you and your friends!
It's very helpful when we can pray with others. I know that when our family prays the Rosary with Daddy leading, or one of the children for practice, it's easier for me to pray the Rosary well.
Of course, when the babies are busy there are distractions; but that is when the Promises of the Rosary seem so helpful and so hopeful. If we can continue saying the Rosary in spite of the distractions of daily life, there's got to be giant merit! :-)
When you use a Rosary booklet, it is easier to meditate on the Mysteries of the Rosary as Our Lady of Fatima asked us to do on the First Saturday of five consecutive first Saturdays. Besides, when else would we consider these Mysteries or ask for the virtues that go with them.
You can watch these Rosary videos and display them on your computer or a big screen for your daily Rosary. There is a list of the titles with the virtues to be gained. My husband uses them on his way home from work on his phone. You can also use a tablet for easy viewing.
