THE ROSARY is a spiritual sword. It enshrines the saving mysteries of the God-Man and has the power to defeat evil, conquer sin, and bring about peace. The rosary is the sword of Our Lady!
In his latest book, Fr. Donald Calloway offers a dynamic and easyto-read book on the rosary-sword of Mary. The book includes a complete history of the rosary, 26 of its greatest champions, detailed accounts of its victories, 24 color pages of the rosary in art, and more than 500 quotes on the rosary from saints and popes, many of which are appearing in English for the first time!
Champions of the Rosary has endorsements from 4 cardinals, the Master General of the Dominicans, 10 Dominican bishops, and more than 20 other bishops from around the world! In 2014, Bishop Oliver Doeme of Nigeria received a vision from Jesus. The Savior gave the bishop a sword that miraculously transformed into a rosary! Our Lord informed the bishop that the rosary-sword would be the weapon to defeat radical Islam. Bishop Doeme endorsed Father Calloway’s book, stating, “Champions of the Rosary is a rich treasure for the Church! It reveals that the rosary is a spiritual sword that continues to be one of the most valuable means available for converting souls. This is a must read book for everyone!”
