The Secret of the Rosary - Thirty-fifth Rose

Thirty-fifth Rose - Cardinal Pierre

BLESSED ALAN says that a certain Cardinal Pierre, whose
titular Church was that of St. Mary-beyond-the-Tiber, was a
great friend of Saint Dominic's and had learned from him a
deep devotion to the Most Holy Rosary. This resulted in his
loving it so much that he never ceased singing its praises
and encouraging everyone he met to embrace it.
Eventually he was sent as Legate to the Holy Land to the
Christians who were fighting the Saracens. So successfully
did he convince the Christian army of the power of the
Rosary that they started saying it one and all to storm
Heaven for help in a battle in which they knew they would
be pitifully out-numbered. This resulted in victory for them,
and three thousand Christians triumphed over an enemy of
one hundred thousand.
As we have seen, the devils have an overwhelming fear of
the Rosary. Saint Bernard says that the Angelic Salutation
puts them to flight and makes all Hell tremble.
Blessed Alan says that he has seen several people delivered
from Satan's bondage after taking up the Holy Rosary, even
though they had previously sold themselves to him in body
and soul by renouncing their Baptismal Vows and their
allegiance to Our Lord Jesus Christ.
