There have been many Marian Apparitions per the Rosary & to spread It all the more. Pope Leo XIII advised adding St. Joseph to Rosary prayers [as I have especially in my Joyful Mysteries -- the only 5 that have St. Joseph so greatly in them]. St. Dominic beheld Our Lady of the Rosary in 1214, & in the 15th c. Blessed Alan de la Roche received the 15 Promises of the Rosary. These Promises range from protection from misfortune to a high degree of glory in Heaven. St. Louis Marie de Montfort stressed how the power of the Rosary is via prayer with attention, devotion, & contemplation via meditation. A Carthusian monk (Dominic of Prussia) added Bible quotes to the Rosary for the 'Scriptural Rosary.' The Dominican Pope Pius V officially established devotion to the Rosary in the Catholic Church. In the 20th c. 'the Fatima Prayer' was added to the end of each decade. Pope Leo 13th (1878-1903) had the most encyclicals ever on the Rosary (12) & 5 Apostolic Letters for it, too; especially, too, for it to be prayed DAILY in October; he also added 'Queen of the Most Holy Rosary' to the Marian Litany of Loreto: too, that the Rosary is as a road to God via the Mother & Son to Our Father; and that it's a vital means via Mary's life to find the way to Christ.
Some add to the Rosary the Miraculous Medal Prayer [as in my Emmanuel Chaplet]. The beads can be made also by dried up roses or even semi-precious stones -- of olive seeds from the Mt. of Olives. The Rosary is also recommended to be worn for Divine Favors. There's even a Rosary of the Holy Wounds per Ven. Marie Martha Chambon... Bl. Isidore Bakanja was martyred with the Rosary & the Brown Scapular. There also are many Churches named after the Holy Rosary in Poland, Hong Kong, Argentina, France, Canada, Brazil & with Basilicas of such in Lourdes, Fatima, etc. From St. Claude Colombiere, S.J. whom JESUS called "My faithful servant & perfect friend: "Why do so many prayers remain unanswered? Can it be that as most people are never satisfied, they make such excessive and impatient demands on GOD that they tire & annoy Him by their importunity? The case is just the opposite. The only reason why we obtain so little from GOD is because we ask for so little & we aren't insistent enough."
More from Ven. Mary of Agreda's Mystical City of God... "It was befitting that the Lord, after accomplishing the Redemption of man, should Ascend to the Father, and that Mary in the Church should remain to bring forth to light the fruit of the Passion & Death of Her Godman Son, Emmanuel: with His Passion & All-Scarletty Blood got for Her Son the field so to plant the vines of the Church: to be transplanted to the New & Eternal Jerusalem [my 4th Unitive Mystery] as the Church Triumphant forever [there are many saints with the syllable 'win' within their names, too]. There were frequent visits of Her Son to Her His Mom by being raised to His Heavenly Throne. Mary yearly celebrated His Ascension: a great yearly festival for Her & for all, which She yearly loved the 40 days after His so loved Resurrection. Jesus descended after His Ascension to Mary's oratory with innumerable angels, Patriarchs & Saints He had taken up with Him to Heaven. Jesus commanded the angels to raise Mary from the dust & place Her at His Right Hand. Mary expressed to Him there, "I desire both glory & exultation to Your All-Holy Name JESUS." A whole celestial procession, as on the day of the Ascension traversed in the air; and Mary ever with Her Son reached the empyrean heavens[....] Mary sang an admirable song of praise with mysteries honored of the Incarnation & Redemption & as Our Lady of Victories per Her Son JESUS up there with ABBA Father [....] At the command of the Most High, holy angels placed Her at Jesus's Right Hand & She beheld GOD in perfect glory. In this Beatific Vision [my 5th Unitive Mystery & 35th of my daily rosary mystery decades] Queen Mary received from Jesus what He predestined for Her [....] Our greatest Queen & Empress Mary piously glorified God's name for the Church & especially too for the conversion of the whole world.... Angels brought Mary to Her oratory in the Cenacle with celestial music & She so humbly prostrated Herself in thanks to God for such: the great Evangelist John beheld Mary so refulgent with celestial light; and She rejoiced so much over Her Son's Ascension to celebrate more the 3rd Glorious Mystery. The Holy Spirit descended yearly upon Mary & entirely inflamed & renewed Her with superabundant gifts & more that She ever had had; She humbly gave thanks for all the favors of the H.S. in that mystery upon Her & the Apostles for them to worthily build up & bless all the more our Church and per His gifts, especially of Holy Wisdom via Maria, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom [....] Mary had songs of glory & praise with the secrets & mysteries of the angels also in honor of the great miracles of the Lord. The angels sang to the Almighty for having created & chosen Mary as the all-worthy Mother of GOD & Restoratrix of the human race - as the New & Perfect Eve forever & ever with JESUS the New & Perfect Adam forever & ever: too, the angels & saints participated in the glory given to Our Lady & Queen: those who died after Jesus rose from the dead came from Heaven to celebrate with Mary Her Son's Eternal Glory. She composed new canticles of thanksgiving for His & the glory of the saints per His Resurrection; & She extolled Our Lord & Father of mercies with thanksgiving for all that God did & does for the holy ones: our Great Queen certainly shared of God's omnipotence; too, as She is seated at the Right Hand of Our only Godman above all the angels & saints of Heaven. [To my 1st Prophetic Rosary Mystery of Genesis 3:15 --] Mary shared, "Enkindle in thy heart the most ardent fervor possible to repel & crush the poisonous serpent [God's enemy]."
The Most Holy Trinity sent Archangel Gabriel & many other angels to announce to the Queen Mary when & how Her mortal life would end and pass into eternal life. Our Lady was prostrate on the ground in the form of a cross in Her oratory in Jerusalem per the Cenacle, asking mercy for sinners. Gabriel saluted Her with the Ave Maria and said, "Our Empress & Lady, GOD sends us from His Heavenly Court to announce to Thee the most happy end of Your Pilgrimage on earth. Thou shalt pass from death to eternal and immortal life, which awaits Thee in glory & at the Right Hand of JESUS, Your GODMan Son & our GOD. You shall be taken up [c. 70 years of age] into the everlasting joy of The Lord. Mary heard this message with ineffable jubilee & She answered, "Behold the handmaid of The Lord; be it done according to thy word." Remaining prostrate, Mary uttered amid tears of humble joy, "I may be raised to the Beatific Vision of My Maker [my 5th Unitive Rosary Mystery." Mary became so inflamed with the fires of Divine Love. Our Great Queen hastened on in Her heroic efforts by loving desires of the eternal light unto everlasting joys of The Lord. She wrote to the Apostles & disciples to encourage them in their labors for the conversion/reversion of the world [Divine Mercy JESUS related]. She regarded the Apostle John as Her son, who attended upon Her & helped Her, too; & She informed him of the message regarding Her death [....] Mary told him, "I belong body & soul to my God & Lord. In His condescending Mercy He has revealed to me that only 3 more years remain for Me here on earth until I pass on & up to eternal life. I beseech thee from the bottom of my Heart to pray for me." Altho the loving Queen encouraged & consoled St. John, his heart yet was as pierced as by a dart of pain & sorrow: it struck him down & caused him to wither like the flowers in their bloom [Mystically Rosey]. Per Her loving promises, Mary came to his relief, assuring him that She'd be his loving Mom & Advocatrix with JESUS. St. John informed St. James the Lesser, Bishop of Jerusalem, who assisted St. John in serving Mary as Empress of the world. Thereafter, mindful of what was coming, they were yet pleadful to Mary & during Her last 3 years, GOD permitted a way to have nature go into mourning & sorrow per Her upcoming death since She beautified & perfected all creation.
The Queen of Heaven went to visit the holy places of the Redemption & arrived on Mt. Calvary: the Apostles & disciples were present went She happily died: at Her death St. John sorrowfully shed many tears; then he shared with the many there on the [4th Glorious Mystery] Happy Transition of their/our Mother & Lady[....] It was a Great Mercy and Providence of the Lord, that many faithful of the primitive Church were thus forewarned of the death of Our Queen of queens [....] All the sick that presented themselves before Her She healed in body & soul; She converted many to the evangelical truth & wished to throw open all Her riches of liberal mercy before Her death [....] Our Great Queen was always a holy pilgrimress of the Church, and when departing for Heaven She was assured of Her Happy ending here on earth; the flame of Her All-Pure Love pressed upward to Our Triune God. Her Godlike Soul received everlasting Life per Divine Love. Mary said: "Life can't live without Love" -- Mystical Rose motto of 'Live Love' -- from O.T. Canticles 2:5 "Amid such aromatic flowers the swoonings of my impatient love shall find recovery." Angels shared, "Our Queen & Lady, as You know JESUS contains within Himself all the perfections, and amiably without defect, pleasing without the least flaw: His greatness is immeasurable, all His perfections are infinite, His counsels inscrutable, His justice all equitable, His works all holy & rich in mercies [...] those who love & extol Him are blessed, & He glorifies them by His eternal vision [my Beatific Vision decade]. Jesus often visited Mary with wonderful favors: that He'd bear Her up to His Right Hand, where She'd be placed on Her royal throne per Our Triune God, and thus the source of new joy to the saints desiring to behold Her forever. Our Loving Mother multiplied Her petitions & all-pious prayers for Mother Church, and for the preaching of Divine Word JESUS for the conversion/reversion of all in the world that need to. Among the wonders JESUS wrought: the BVM received Holy Communion & so holily shone, seemingly transfigured thereby per the Whole Christ Who also showed Himself to Her in His All-Glorious Being. Mary resolved to take leave of the holy places before Her Assumption; & with the consent of St. John She left the house with him & with thousands of angels [...] & She visited all the memorable places of our Redeemer & with tears recalling sorrowful memories of Her Son's Passion, fervently renewing them with great acts of love, clamors & petitions for all the faithful who should revere those Holy Lands when they can. JESUS said, "In Heaven, you Mary shall obtain all your intercessions as Mediatrix & Advocatrix to fill others with My Treasures & Infinite Mercies." Mary asked angels & St. John for blessings unto Her Dormition, & the Lord assured Her of Her petitions at the throne of His Divine Mercy. She turned to the mystical body of the Church and cried out, "Holy Catholic Church in thee have I lived as a pilgrim to the Fatherland. In you are the treasures & riches of JESUS'S infinite merits. My beloved Church in eternal life I will find you joyful & shall behold you with Motherly Love & will always pray for your holy gains." Thereafter, Mary parted from the mystical body of the holy Roman Catholic Church, mother of the faithful & our Mother of Wisdom gave Her most prudent will to Our Lord. Our Triune GOD went to Her oratory & then Queen Mary heard GOD say, 'We shall confirm your will & grant it entirely by our infinite power.' ABBA told Her, "My Daughter, you'll be pleasing & acceptable to Me, for you lack not the merits of good works in passing up to Me; thus I'll satisfy Your holy desires." Our other Triune Persons encouraged Her thus as well. Mary replied, "Highest Lord & Eternal GOD I adore Thee with all my inmost soul; & I thank the heavens and all creatures thereof also on earth. My garb do I leave to St. John for his disposal, since I hold him as a holy son. O My GOD, I'll love & magnify Thee via all eternity, as I desire the fulfillment of Thy Holy Will on earth as in Heaven so that all come to the knowledge & love of Thee our Triune GOD." When the Great Queen had made Her testament, She thanked Almighty GOD & asked, "All Clement Lord & Father of Divine Mercies, my soul desires at its departure to be present together with the Apostles & disciples." Of course, JESUS answered, "My most beloved Mother, it's My Will that all assist at thy glorious departure for the eternal mansions, so that You & they may be consoled." In order that from His Sacred Body after death, He'd spring up His Church, JESUS permitted His All-Starry Sacred Heart to be lanced [omniscient too, per His Divine Mercy, that St. Longinus would be healed/repent/& martyred in Constantinople]. Since Eternal ABBA Father was perfectly pleased with the Life, Passion, & Death of His only generated Son YESHUA, our only Redeemer instituted in His Church the Holy Sacrifice of His Body & Blood [5th Luminous Mystery of JESUS, Light of the World -- & of the New World to come].
JESUS sent the H.S. upon His Holy Church to fill it with His holy gifts & eternal wisdom and to enrich it thereby with all the merits of His Life, Passion, & Death: applying them via the Sacraments. In the Church militant He communicates familiarly with all the holy souls, works wonders & miracles for them & hears their prayers, thus maintaining the communion of saints [Creed comment]. Jesus placed the pope over the Church as head of His Mystical Body. Jesus left the BVM after His Ascension for the church to be helped by Her merits & presence as both Mother & Madonna. Mary said, "Look upon my freedom & detachment from all earthly things so that you may enter into Heaven per the open gates of JESUS's infinite Divine Mercy & Clemency [....] The Ark of the Covenant was to be placed in the temple of the Celestial Jerusalem [my 4th Unitive Mystery - the New & Eternal Jerusalem]. The Apostle Paul came to Queen Mary Who showed him the same reverence She gave to others like him; and he saluted Her as Mater Dei & Queen, and as Servantress of all creation. St. Peter said, "The Most High GOD wishes to raise You up now to Heaven, Mother Mary & Consolatrix, Protectress of us all: His Divine Decree is that we all be present at Your Assumption." He spoke no further due to great tears & sighs then & there. JESUS told them "Seek the presence of Our Mother & Lady. Pass Her last times with Her in Her company for Her blessings, too." They all went to the Oratory & saw Her full of the Light of our Heavenly Christ, surrounded by so many angels, too, and as Her guards. Mary was kneeling at great length then in prayer to Our Lord; & it was righteous for Her to be seated as their Queen & Seat of Wisdom. St. John the Evangelist said to Her, "Bless me so that I too may enter into the Beatific Vision with You & per GOD Who created me." Mary also shared, "I now go to the eternal mansions, & I'll behold you all as my Son's chosen friends, willing the Beatific Vision [BV like to BVM] for you all since as Mother of the Church I so love It, too." When finishing speaking, the Apostles wept there as She was too, & JESUS descended from Heaven on a throne of ineffable glory with all the saints & innumerable holy angels, with Mary adoring Him & He told Our Heavenly Queen, "My dearest Mother, the hour is come for You to enter into the glory of My Father to be on the throne prepared for You at my Right Hand & be ever in eternal joy thereby.
[Mystically Rosey --] A Divine Fragrance then also spread about & even penetrating the street with JESUS ordaining that multitudes of those in Jerusalem arrive over to there as witnesses to this new fragrant miracle. When dying full of love, Mary cited JESUS's Last Words on the Cross, "ABBA, into Thy Hands I commend My Spirit." Of course, the holy ones joined King JESUS & Queen MARY into Heaven while Mary was ever shining with bright light & breathing forth a perfectly holy fragrance. Thousands of holy angels stayed watching over Her all-precious Virginal Body. After She died right at 3PM on Friday - as JESUS did - yet at about 70 years of age on August 13; it's also known that She was 15 at the Birth of Her Son, thus being 48 years old when JESUS went through His Passion & Death. Thanks ever & always to Mary, also since when She died many sick ones were miraculously healed by Her & many souls released too from purgatory [....] Mary added, "The Lord offered to Me the Beatific Vision even if I'd not preferred to die Almighty God willed it for me to enter There as I'm Immaculate & thereby without death as consequence to sin [....] All those devoted to Me shall be of My Special Protection at the hour of their deaths as their Helpress & Proctectress & shall be presented by Me before the tribunal of Divine Mercy JESUS: also any or all who venerate the mystery of my precious death can invoke my aid: too as Omnipotent GOD granted such miracles for Me & for mortals" [....] The most amiable & loving sharings of our Great Queen Mary ravished their good hearts. The holy Apostles also met for the burial of our Perfectly Holy Queen & Lady MARY. As with JESUS's Body, precious ointments & spices were wrapped in Mary's sacred burial cloths. Apostles Peter & John sensed the sacred smell & angelic music in that oratory with those angels chanting, "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is [ever] with Thee." Many candles miraculously lit up at Mary's bier & the Lord Himself inspired all there in Jerusalem to be at Her Burial. Not only legions of angels yet also Patriarchs & Prophets were there together with these saints: Joachim & Anne, Elizabeth & John the Baptist, & many more sent by Our Savior JESUS to assist Mary at that time unto Her Burial too & as our Most Blessed Mother... many miracles happened then: mainly of conversions as the treasures of Divine Mercy were opened. [Mystically Rosey --] Many were astonished at the fragrance & sweet music then & some struck their breasts in sorrow, of course, too. So many angels guarded Her Body, & the exquisite fragrance of Her Sacred Body exhumed for many years, even too at the Cenacle with many miracles continuing in Jerusalem, with Apostles catechizing & baptizing new converts [....] Of the glory & felicity of the saints in the Beatific Vision -- St. Augustine knew how indescribably great are even the least joys up there in that Vision.
Among the saints, Mary is more like to Her Son than the others. Our Redeemer JESUS entered Heaven again taking MARY to His Right Side & to judge with Him our Perfect Judge all creatures. She was the brightest Aurora, effulgent with the rays of the Divinity beyond even the brightest of the hierarchy of angels -- Seraphim [there's even a Eucharist great monk St. Seraphim 1759-1853 - a visionary of Mary]. JESUS said of MARY that She is the one who was born as a ROSE among thorns, pure & beautiful, worthy of being embraced by our Triune GOD & enthroned; too "She was as like to Me as is possible for a creature to be & as like to Me in glory of My Divine Majesty." The all holy soul of Mary was placed next to Jesus with Our Triune GOD forever as the most exalted & supereminent Queen & Lady & Empress surpassing all the saints in glory with Her likeness to JESUS CHRIST so greatly! Her purest soul entered Her virginal body and with gifts of purity, impassibility, agility & subtlety. Endowed with these gifts She easily was assumed into Heaven & was given by JESUS a glory & majesty like to His own. When She entered Heaven the saints & angels beheld and blessed Her with new jubilee & praise: chanting that She's more beautiful than the moon & elect as the Sun of Justice [on the full moon, as the Full of Grace, She can be seen nourishing the Baby Jesus, too, & with Trinitarian 3 Stars on Her Crown upon Her Head].
ABBA GOD said to IMMA MARY, "Ascend higher, My Daughter & My Dove." The Other Triune Persons also accentuated upon Her eternal joys.

Have a Blessed & Holy June month of the Body of Christ!
