Having finished reading THE SECRET OF THE ROSARY, you are called upon by Our Lady to act and to apply these life-saving instructions in your daily life. The world is in grave peril from Communism, and the Church is equally in peril from the enemy within, who seeks to disarm her by suggesting that we should abandon the Holy Rosary. Pope Paul VI warned us of this when he said, "The smoke of Satan has entered the Church."

Have any of the Free World's great powers in this century been able to stem the advance of Communism----the direst foe of God in all history? But where man has failed, history records that the Rosary alone has succeeded. Austria, Brazil, Chile and Portugal all saved themselves from the peril of Communism----by the recitation of the Rosary. (Read Fatima the Great Sign for proof.) St. Louis De Montfort tells us that the Rosary was largely responsible for the crucial victory of Lepanto in October, 1571. Four centuries later, at the outset of Communism in 1917, Our Lady told us at Fatima: "If people attend to my requests, Russia will be converted and the world will have peace. If not, Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars . . . and various nations will be annihilated."

Can anyone deny that these calamitous events are coming to pass in our times? The threat of worse suffering to come can still be averted, and another signal victory like that at Lepanto over the TUrks can be won today, if enough people will respond here and now to Our Lady's requests to do penance in reparation for sin (the cause of all wars) and especially to "pray the Rosary every day." For all the vast paraphernalia of power politics are but a shadow compared with the infinite power of the Rosary before God, provided it is fervently used and propagated.
