Amaz­ing Res­ults With the Ros­ary
Octo­ber 11, 2016 by Ellen Gable Hrkach
Rosary“The holy Ros­ary is a power­ful weapon. Use it with con­fid­ence and you’ll be amazed at the res­ults.”
St. Jose­maria Escriva

Although I grew up in a Cath­olic fam­ily, I learned how to say the Ros­ary at Cath­olic school. My father often said the Ros­ary privately, but we nev­er recited it as a fam­ily and I rarely said it on my own before the age of 11. One even­ing, how­ever, my par­ents were involved in a viol­ent argu­ment. It was my first exper­i­ence at being amazed at the res­ults” of the power­ful weapon of the holy ros­ary. The fol­low­ing is another excerpt from my nov­el, Emily’s Hope. It’s based on actu­al events and is a true illus­tra­tion of Our Lady’s power­ful inter­ces­sion.

I listen as my par­ents are fight­ing again, fight­ing over bills they can’t pay. Each time my mom yells, my dad yells louder. Dad starts to throw things, not at Mom, just throw­ing things. I’m scared. It makes me feel anxious to see the two people I love most in the world scream­ing at each oth­er. Don’t they love each oth­er, I ask myself. Why won’t they stop yelling?

Dad just said some­thing about mov­ing out. Oh, God, please, I don’t want my dad to move out. Mom says good. Oh, please, Mom, don’t say that. I look at both of them but they don’t seem to see me or the pan­ic in my eyes. They only glare at each oth­er.

Dad goes upstairs. I run after him and watch as he gets a suit­case out and starts put­ting clothes in it.

God, why won’t you stop him? I pass by my bed­room and notice my ros­ary sit­ting on the bed­side table. I grab it, sit down on my bed, and begin say­ing the ros­ary. As I say each Hail Mary, I plead with Our Lady, Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sin­ners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” Please, Our Lady, don’t let my Dad walk out.

As I’m say­ing another Hail Mary, Dad walks by my room and doesn’t notice that I’m even there. He stomps down the steps. I can’t hear if he says bye, but I hear the door slam shut.

Oh, God, please, make him come back.” I con­tin­ue say­ing the ros­ary, each Hail Mary becom­ing more fer­vent than the last. I pray until my heart is burst­ing. Please, God, listen to my pray­er.

I begin say­ing the Hail Holy Queen pray­er and sud­denly, I hear the door open down­stairs. Without fin­ish­ing, I stand at the top of the stairs and I see that my dad is stand­ing at the door­way. Mom walks over to him. At first, they’re silent.

Then, my dad starts to cry. I can’t leave you. I can’t leave my fam­ily.” He and Mom embrace.

I begin to cry. Thank you, God, and thank you, Our Lady, for bring­ing my daddy back.

My par­ents remained mar­ried until my father’s death eight years later. He was bur­ied with his ros­ary in his hands.

Emily’s Hope is avail­able on Amazon in paper­back and on Kindle. The novel’s web­site includes reviews, an excerpt, a syn­op­sis and a radio inter­view.
