10/21/2021 – Power of the Rosary for God’s Mercy
“King Alphonsus of Leon and Galicia (1118-1230) desired that all his servants honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, and so he hung a large rosary on his belt – despite having rarely prayed the rosary himself.
One day, the King fell ill and was given up for dead. He found himself standing before the judgment seat of Christ.
Moments before he was to be condemned, Our Lady swiftly interceded for him.
Our Lady weighed his sins on one scale. On another scale, she weighed his large rosary and the many rosaries that others had recited because of his example. The rosaries outweighed his sins.
And so, he was spared.Our Lady then said, “As a reward for the little service you did for me in wearing my rosary, I have obtained a great grace for you from my Son.“Your life will be spared for a few more years. See that you spend those years wisely, and do penance.” (Georgette Bechara)
In his remaining years, the King became devoted himself to Our Lady and the Rosary.
