A few years back, I was feeling dead and dry spiritually. I was trying to deepen and refresh my faith by different devotions, including regular recitation of the rosary. However, it felt more like a burden, and I was about to give it up. I prayed earnestly about it. The next Sunday at Church, I arrived early to recite it before mass. While reciting it, I was wrestling with the question of whether I should give up this devotion, and in fact all my devotions, feeling abandoned by God. As I turned the page to read about the next mystery, The priest began speaking, announcing it was Assumption Sunday (which I hadn't even known,) and then he went behind the altar as it wasn't time for Mass yet. I looked down on the page I had just turned, and it was the Assumption! The next morning, the TV was playing in the background, to the "Ellen Show." Jim Carrey was the guest, and he, of all people!, began talking about how at 10 years old he started praying the rosary and miracles happened in his life, and now he feels is life if divinely guided. OK, I got the message, continue praying the rosary! I stuck with it, and my faith has grown tremendously the last few years, and brought me such comfort and joy.

Our Rosary Miracle...It was a Friday night and I was praying the rosary. I prayed and asked Mary, Joseph, and Jesus to keep my daughter close to the faith and not allow her to go astray. I also prayed for a sign that I was on the right track as far as my life was going and the direction that I was headed in. While praying the rosary I fell asleep. As a result I dropped my rosary into the floor. In the morning my daughter found my rosary she picked it up and started to pray and as she was praying she heard a loud male voice! The voice said, "Mary is very proud of you for praying the rosary!" I was looking for my rosary and my husband told me that that our daughter found my rosary in the floor. I went back to her room to ask her where she placed my rosary. I asked where she put my rosary. My daughter said, " Mom can I ask you a question?" I replied, "Sure, what is it?" She told me about her experience earlier that morning and asked me who I thought was talking her. I replied, "It must be Jesus or God." She then asked me if Jesus or God had ever spoke to me. I replied, "No." She then further questioned me as to why not me but her? I replied, "Well, Jesus and God prefer to speak to the innocent who will listen." I then hugged and told her and told her how proud I was. Isn't this amazing? My daughters experience really inspired me. I find it so incredible how prayers are answered. This really renewed my faith in the power of prayer. The rosary is so powerful and comforting.

I was driving down my road and passed the home of a former friend with whom I had had a falling out. The Rosary CD was playing and I decided that Ishould get over our differences and try to make amends. Not that it had anything to do with our differences but some years ago I helped her to wash and dry several boxes of tea cups/saucers that had been willed to her. Knowing something about them I encouraged her to sell them to help pay off some bills. I was quite taken with one that was a fortune telling tea cup and I wished very much that she would offer it to me, but she never did. Having been very generous to both she and her family over the years I felt some resentment over that one thing. But nevertheless I thought I had best try to be friends again. Several hours later, I found the tea cup for $5 in a resale shop. I have never see one for sale before. It may seem a small thing, but it spoke volumes to me.

I was reading your section on signal graces and something that recently happened to me came to mind. I had this huge history test on Friday consisting of 15 essay questions. The professor gave us all 15 questions but he said he would pick only five of them to test us on. So we had to study all 15 because we didn't know what questions would be asked. So I studied hard but the day before the test I knew I wasn't ready. I only knew 6 or 7 questions out of the 15. I have been praying the rosary for a while but that night before the test I prayed it asking God to intervene by calming me down and to take away some of the anxiety I had. And if it was His will to have the professor give me the questions I knew. So the day for the big test came and the professor was on the verge of giving out the questions and then all of a sudden a calmness came over me and I felt relaxed. Then the professor gave me my questions and to my surprise the 5 questions he asked me were the 5 questions I knew the best. Needless to say, I was in shock. I mean what are the odds of that happening. The Lord truly does hear us when we pray; that I am convinced of.

Last Spring I suffered a major clinical depression. At the time it was at it's worse, the Holy Father, Pope John Paul was passing. I watched with him and I cried and prayed for him. Now that would not be unusual except that I am not a Catholic and barely knew of him or his works, except that he was goodness itself. I have , however been a Christian since birth. When I saw St. Peter's Square overflowing with the faithful praying the Rosary, I said to my husband, a rough fisherman(insert Picture of Peter here!)"I need one of those. Please go get me a Rosary. As we had no idea where to get one, I bought one online and taught myself to say the Rosary. Within 3 months I was vastley better, my medicine, daily Rosary recitation! I knew that I had an invitation from the late Holy Father and Our Blessed Mother to join The Catholic Church. I wrote to a priest and am now in RCIA and my son is in Sacrements Class and will make his first communion also. God has never left me alone when I was in need and I thank Jesus for sharing his own mother with me! God Bless You, Jill

Reading your stories just gave me the chills for this reason. I have been out of the Church for 15 years now. I was raised in a Catholic church but married out of the church with a man who is I could say anti-Catholic. We have attended various churches and I follow because of my husband but I'm beginning to see that I have to stand my ground and by beliefs. I yearn for the Eaucharist again but I know my husband will object the idea of taking our children to a catholic church. So I watch EWTN daily and just yesterday I prayed one decade of the Rosary and pleaded to God to show me if I was doing his will. Well, talking about signal graces: I have been missing a jar of spices for weeks now, and yesterday by husband asked me where I had found it. I said "found what?" "the jare of spices," he answered. He assures me and the kids that they did not find the jar and place it in its place. I surely did'nt. Who did? And now out of the blue I hit your site and read about signal graces! Glory be to God!!

I was having a very stressful week trying to resolve some financial issues. I realized that I have not been setting time aside to pray the Rosary. I am new to praying the Rosary, and in the past found it a little confusing to remember all of the Mysteries. Last night I found some quiet time and prayed the Rosary. For the first time I was not confused by the Mysteries. I prayed and quietly hoped that what I was worried about would be resolved. Today I was rushing through my kitchen on my way out to work and I stopped right in my tracks. I saw a small glass elephant on my counter. I know that I did not put the tiny elephant there, but smiled because I know that elephants are a symbol for good luck. I put the elephant in my pocket and left for work. Later in the afternoon I received the phone call I was waiting for, with good news about the issue that had me so worried. I know Signal Graces do exist, and I feel that this was a Signal to me to comfort me and to let me know that everything will be ok. I will continue to pray the Rosary every day.
