The Catholic Defender: The 15 Promises Our Lady gave for the Rosary. The Twelfth Promise

12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities. He said to [his] disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat, or about your body and what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Notice the ravens: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds! Can any of you by worrying add a moment to your life-span? If even the smallest things are beyond your control, why are you anxious about the rest? Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass in the field that grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? As for you, do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not worry anymore. All the nations of the world seek for these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these other things will be given you besides. Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom."

The Lord did give us His Kingdom, the Catholic Faith, Revelation 5:8-10 states, " When he took it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each of the elders held a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones. They sang a new hymn: “Worthy are you to receive the scroll and to break open its seals, for you were slain and with your blood you purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation. You made them a kingdom and priests for our God, and they will reign on earth.” This leads us right back to the Catholic Church because of the grace given by God through the Sacraments. This is what the "priests for our God" is impowered by the Lord to continue His mission in His Kingdom.

Isaiah 41:10 states, "Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Our Lady in her Twelfth Promise is not just talking about praying the Rosary here, but also promoting the Rosary. The Lord is backing Our Lady with His powerful "right hand" which is really referencing His Authority. The Lord can back is promises by the Word of His command.

One of the most famous passages coming from the Psalms is Psalm 23, "The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. You set a table before me in front of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the LORD for endless days."

What a fantastic promise Our Lady is tapping into here as over and over the Bible gives evidence of His great love for His creation for the Salvation of man. The Lord will take care of the needs of His people and from the cross, He gives us His Mother to aid us in these necessities. 1 Peter 5:6-7 states, "So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you."

Throughout my adult life I have found this to be true. No matter how tough things have been I seem to have always pulled through. It always seems that I am always getting hit everywhere to include the kitchen sink. Literally. My kitchen received water damage and we are having to fix our kitchen as everything has been stripped. Despite that, we are still being taken care of.

Despite the fact that I am targeted by Facebook and Twitter, and they have had an impact on our apostolate which I believe is their goal, I am still able to get our shows and articles out. Facebook continues to block our efforts to promote Deepertruth materials without a means to respond. I've posted on the Rosary Patrol which I founded and head and they are targeting me. When you compare what the Secularist and anti-Church groups do around the world, we are greatly blessed. We are to pray the Rosary and dedicate prayer for those who are suffering. If you are capable of helping others with your treasure, the Lord is asking that we do so to help others in their necessities.

We become the Lord's helpers, "What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone may say, “You have faith and I have works.” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works."

God, my Father, may I love You in all things and above all things. May I reach the joy which You have prepared for me in Heaven. Nothing is good that is against Your Will, and all that is good comes from Your Hand. Place in my heart a desire to please You and fill my mind with thoughts of Your Love, so that I may grow in Your Wisdom and enjoy Your Peace. Amen
