Fifteen Promises of the Rosary~The Eleventh Promise

     The Eleventh Promise to those who faithfully pray the Rosary is that what they shall ask through the Rosary, they shall obtain. In their greatest suffering, the holy saints and martyrs were miraculously strengthened by Our Blessed Mother's unwavering fidelity to our Almighty Father. Their steadfast fidelity was continually renewed by Jesus, as they grew more and more like Him through each trial and triumph. This divine transformation was the greatest desire of their hearts. Praying the Holy Rosary is certain to make this the greatest desire of our hearts as well.
 And seeing the multitudes 
He went up into a mountain 
and when He was set down 
His disciples came unto Him. 
And opening His mouth 
He taught them saying, 
"Blessed are the poor in spirit 
for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
 Blessed are the meek 
for they shall posess the land. 
Blessed are they that mourn 
for they shall be comforted. 
Blessed are they that hunger 
and thirst for justice 
for they shall have their fill. 
Blessed are the merciful 
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart 
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers 
for they shall be called children of God. 
Blessed are they that suffer persecution 
for justice sake 
for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. 
Blessed are ye when they shall revile you 
and persecute you and speak all that is evil 
against you untruly for my sake. 
Be glad and rejoice 
for your reward is very great in Heaven. 
For so they persecuted 
the prophets that were before you."

From the Gospel of Matthew 
Chapter 5 Verses 1 through 12
