"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

The Holy Rosary; a Fortress

Our Blessed Lady and Her Immaculate Heart is a Fortress wherein we hide, grow and cultivate our own souls in grace. She left us another Fortress, the Rosary, by which we defend against the enemy of souls.

St. Dominic, who received the Rosary from our Blessed Mother, calls the Rosary a "spiritual weapon" when he says:
If the rosary is prayed with fervor, it can defeat armies, destroy heresies and convict hearts in their evil ways…The rosary is a fortress against evil. It is a sign to Satan that you belong to Our Lady; therefore, you should always carry it on your person. With the rosary you can overcome disease, conquer insurmountable trials and unseat dictators. All of these things have been accomplished with the rosary in the past in various parts of the world. Continue, then, to pray and have faith in the humble prayer of the rosary.
