As strange as it might sound, many Catholics are relying upon ‘reciting’ the rosary to the place that their salvation is hinging upon it to some degree. In fact, even modern day Vatican Council II Catholicism has made the official statement that the Rosary is the epitome of the gospel:
The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an ‘epitome of the whole Gospel,’ express this devotion to the Virgin Mary (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Liguori Publications, 1994, paragraph 971, p.253.)
So, according to Catholicism, the rosary is the epitome of the whole gospel, including the 150 hail Mary prayers. Furthermore, their rosary gospel is connected with devotion to Mary! That alone shows how far Catholicism’s false gospel is, from the real life-giving gospel cited in the Bible (1 Cor. 15:1-4; Acts 20:21; 26:20; etc.). The real gospel does NOT even mention Mary, but their false gospel has an exalted role for her! Their powerless plan of salvation revolves around the sacraments, being a Catholic and the mythical Mary fabricated by Catholicism, which evolved over the centuries.
The truth is, not only is the rosary a violation of Jesus’ commands about praying, it also began around 1090AD! NOTE: If the rosary was really the epitome of the whole gospel, then such never existed until that date! Could that be possible? Never! Again, the rosary is a clear violation of God’s truth, according to the Lord Jesus:
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. (Mat 6:6-8)
The Catholic rosary gospel, which declares Mary as “our life, sweetness and hope,” is both a false hope and a deadly snare to sincere Catholics, who implicitly trust their spiritual leaders and want eternal life. The message of the New Testament (God’s truth) is much different and it alone can result in freedom from sin addictions and produce a new creation in Christ. God bless you.
