TOWER OF SALVATION AGAINST THE ASSAULTS OF HELL
We are in May, the month of Mary, and I am looking into the Marian prayers written by former satanist turned zealous promoter of the Rosary, Bartolo Longo. If you haven't already, you might like to read the story of Bartolo's conversion.
Bartolo Longo's prayer to Our Lady of the Rosary
O blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death; yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompeii, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven. Amen!
