III. The rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
IV. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the heart of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
V. The soul which recommend itself to me by the recitation of the rosary, shall not perish.
VI. Whoever shall recite the rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune.

VII. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.

XV. Devotion of my rosary is a great sign of predestination.
