Rosary Victory

The Rosary: The Prayer of the Little Ones for the Victory

During the International Spiritual Exercises, at Collevalenza – Sanctuary of Merciful Love (Madre Speranza), June 29 – July 5, 2003, Don Stefano Gobbi offered to over 200 priests and to over 10 bishops of the Marian Movement of Priests the following meditation. This is the THIRD of four meditations given by Don Stefano Gobbi during this week of Spiritual Exercises.

Note: the dates indicate when a message was given to Don Stefano Gobbi which can be found in the Blue Book, “To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons” (

Many bishops have given their Imprimatur to this book. You will find in these messages of Our Lady revealed through Don Stefano Gobbi a resemblance to the writings of Saint Louis de Montfort, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and to the messages of Our Lady of Fatima, with the sweetness that only the Mother of God, and the Mother of each us, could communicate to those open to the caresses of Our Lady!

The Bishop of Como, Italy, Msgr. Diego Coletti, according to the Norm of Can. 322 sec. 1 and 2 CIC, approved the Statutes of the Association of the “Marian Movement of Priests” and conferred on this association the Juridical Personality, July 10, 2013.

Praise be Jesus Christ!

Brothers priests, we are at the end of this Cenacle. I tell you the truth, that the days of these exercises have never passed so quickly.

If you remember, in the first meditation I tried right away to introduce you to understand the secret of this Movement. It is a Movement which in the Church by its nature has no legal recognition, however, it is definitely the Work of Madonna. About this I have evidence of this one hundred percent.

She raises it up, according to the needs of the Church and of humanity, in these times of purification and of the great tribulation, because they are dominated by the ancient serpent, Satan, as a great dragon who deceives the whole world. He has led humanity away from God, he has built a pagan civilization, with the idols that everyone adores.


Above all Satan has formed a powerful army with the greatest and the strongest at all levels, to the point that yesterday these powerful ones in evil, Father Ivan in his meditation, called them giants to create fear in all of us who are children.

I remember in the Holy Scripture the episode of a little child. There was made a challenge to Saul, to have a duel with the giant Goliath and the young David offers himself to fight him. And King Saul puts his armor on David. Imagine, this youth with the armor: he could not move a step, he could not move his hands. Then he says: Away the armor, I will present myself just as I am. He takes his sling and the stones.

And the giant Goliath, when he sees him, he despise him: “But you son of a wicked woman, you worthless blond boy have the courage to come against me…” David answers: "You come in the name of all your troops, I come in the name of the Lord of Israel" (Sam 17:45). He takes his sling and hits him with a stone in the head, the giant falls, he goes and kills him.

We must not be afraid of the Giants.

In his meditations, Msgr. Cabrejos develops the themes that the Pope proposed in the public life of Jesus. Why offer them now? Because now we have to live this aspect of the public life, to live it and to make it lived. This is our testimony. To bring people to hear the word of Jesus, to announce it. "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him" (Mt 17,5).

Then at the wedding of Cana Our Lady, he said to the servants, "Do whatever he says." We must do what Jesus tells us, do you understand brother priests? And then convert ourselves, since the Kingdom of God is near. We could understand the Kingdom as interior, but also as the Kingdom that Jesus will bring, when He will return in glory. Our Lady prepares us to receive Him in glory.

And to believe in His divinity. To become true ministers of holiness, lending ourselves especially for the sacrament of reconciliation, as I have often pointed out in these exercises, because sacramental confession is disappearing everywhere.

But above all Our Lady, in front of the ranks of the giants, the little servant of the Lord forms the host of little ones, of children. She therefore forms the array of children in order to defeat the army of the giants.

Behold the strategic points of Her plan.

With pride the giants are deceived and they deceive everyone else.

With the humility of her small children She goes up against this pride.

The pride of the giants breaks down little by little the word of God. The humility of the small ones receives the word of God with faith and spreads the Gospel just as it is.

The pride of the giants leads us to live according to the world, far from God, on the way of sin and capital vices.

The strategy of Mary is to feed her children so that they can grow in grace, in the exercise of the virtues and to walk along the way of holiness.

She prepares the army of her little children to overcome the force of the giants. This is the fight that the Pope emphasized in his homily: ''Another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon" (Rev 12:3). These words from the first reading of the Mass make us think of the great struggle between good and evil, showing how, when man puts God aside, he cannot achieve happiness, but ends up destroying himself" (John Paul II, Homily at Fatima, May 13, 2000). These giants will eventually eat each other, they will destroy themselves by themselves.


"According to the divine plan, "a woman clothed with the sun" (Rev 12: 1) came down from heaven to this earth to visit the privileged children of the Father” (John Paul II, Homily at Fatima, May 13, 2000). Most Holy Mary comes from Heaven to earth at Fatima according to a divine plan: in search of the little ones to form her militia. But the little ones do not know how to fight. But God sometimes even wins without fighting.

There are two episodes in the Old Testament that explain how Our Lady carries forth today her victory. An episode is quoted from the book of Judges and the other episode is quoted from the book of Joshua.
Now Jericho was shut up from within and from without because of the people of Israel; none went out, and none came in. And the LORD said to Joshua, "See, I have given into your hand Jericho, with its king and mighty men of valor. You shall march around the city, all the men of war going around the city once. Thus shall you do for six days. And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark; and on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, the priests blowing the trumpets. And when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, as soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city will fall down flat".” (Josh 6:1-5).

St. Cyril of Alexandria says that the city of Jericho represents the city of evil: the Jericho of evil, which is destroyed by the priestly trumpets, that is by the priestly prayer, prayer will be the cause of the falling down today of the Jericho of evil.

But in this fight we see that there's all the people of Israel, the priests, the ark and the people.

There is also another episode in which the Lord wins, not with many, but with few, it is that recounted in the book of Judges:
Then Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) and all the people who were with him rose early and encamped beside the spring of Harod; and the camp of Midian was north of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.
The LORD said to Gideon, "The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, 'My own hand has delivered me.' 3 Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home.'" And Gideon tested them; twenty-two thousand returned” (Judg 7:1-3).

In the Movement in recent years, those who have been afraid, withdrew. Afraid, because they found it difficult; afraid, because they heard criticism, fear, because they meet with indifference or misunderstanding on the part of some bishops; afraid, because they were criticized by some theologian; fear, for many other reasons. Many have turned back.

But it is a plan of Our Lady to have let them go back. Here it must be clear that the victory is hers alone. Not even us as a movement, although called to be part of her cohort, we have to be honored in some way for the victory. The victory is hers alone! And She wants to show that it is hers.

“Twenty two thousand turned back”.

It could be even 40,000 in the Movement. It is not important, it is not important.

"Ten thousand remained. And the LORD said to Gideon, "The people are still too many” ” (Judg 7:3-4). Ten thousand are too many: they would say that it is them, that it is not God Who saved Israel. Then he put them to the test:
Take them down to the water and I will test them for you there… Every one that laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself; likewise every one that kneels down to drink." And the number of those that lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was three hundred men; but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will deliver you (Judg 7:4-7).

Do you know how the victory took place? Gideon divided the three hundred men into three groups of a hundred. He give to all of them trumpets, carafes and sticks. At my order you will beat with the sticks and the pitchers and you and I will begin to scream, yell, scream ... They did as they were told, the frightened Midianites leave, they turn against each other, and they kill everyone. And the three hundred won without any weapons, without fighting. The Midianites were killed for fear of their voice.


Look at how these episodes from the Old Testament clearly illuminate what Our Lady is doing now.

The Gospel says: “I thank Thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes" (Mt 11:25); and in the Psalm: "By the mouth of babes and infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes, to still the enemy and the avenger" (Ps 8,3).

Once in a meditation, I said that Our Lady puts us through the test, like Gideon, not the test of water, but the test of milk. Those children who want to take the baby’s bottle and drink the milk alone, Our Lady says: "Go to the side, they are already a bit too big, they have grown a bit too much. Those who take the milk from my bosom, these I keep, because they have that smallness that appeals to my heart and with which I will be able to act."

Then we begin to think: how are infants able to speak? They do not know how to speak. But She says, with the voice of infants. What is their voice? It is a voice of crying that expresses (the mothers know how to understand) the need for food or the need for sleep. When children are infants, they express themselves in this way. Their voice is the one that asks for food or for sleep.

With the voice of children and infants: this means with a voice of people, who can not speak, that basically know only how to cry, invoking God, their Dad, and invoking the Mom. And the Mom is waiting just for this crying voice that is of invocation and of supplication to the Heavenly Father and to Her, she waits only for this voice in order to begin implementing her victory.

Do you understand… we must be small in this way.

Because this our invocation to the Father and to the Mother is a voice that is deposited in them and that it makes ours their own prayer. That's why the ''Blue Book" it is written: "When I to hear them cry like little children… I will intervene in an amazing and terrible way” (February 23, 1974). It is the crying and the invocation of those children who do not know how to speak, but who place their voice in that of Jesus and that of the Mother.

This is why Our Lady invites us to pray with Her, together with Her. And the prayer done with Her is the Holy Rosary. "It is a prayer that you do with Me. I pray with you, I join in your prayer." It is a prayer done together, in which the voice of the children is united with the Mother's voice. And it is this power of the maternal voice of Mary, united with that of her children, that obtains the victory: so powerful to win and crush the power of the giants, which today have become really strong, especially the ones inserted in the diabolical but very strong ranks which is the Freemasonry.


Now you understand why, seeing that we are entering into the heart of the trial – with so many signs Our Lord helps us to understand – at the beginning of a millennium in which explodes in many parts of the world terrorism, which leads to new bloody situations and violence, in which the difficulties which the world horizon presents, lead us to think that if there is no intervention from on High, we will not be able to change what awaits us and to hope for a brighter future, in the days when the same Christianity threatens to succumb, the Pope establishes a Year of the Rosary and invites the whole Church to pray with Mary, so that we can be freed from the terrible dangers that loom over us in these times.

Gather the religious and the faithful around you in cenacles of unceasing and fervent prayer, offered with me.
At this time above all, I am asking you to pray with fervor and joy by means of the holy rosary. It is the weapon which is to be used by you today in fighting and winning this bloody battle” (May 1, 1983).

How is it possible in a battle, in which young children go up against the giants and do not use weapons? They are defeated from the start. David: "You come in the power of your armor, I come in the name of the Lord with a sling."

The giants come with all their power, led by Satan himself, with all the evil spirits ... Catherine Emmerich, a German mystic of the eighteenth century, saw that 50 years before 2000, hell would be emptied, because Satan and all the devils came into this world to build the kingdom of evil. So you see how the fight is above all at the level of spirits: angels and heavenly spirits against Satan and the demons. We are involved in a fight that is immensely beyond us. Faced with the power of all these, what can we do?

Our Lady gives us the weapon, because we too must have the weapon. And the weapon that She gives us is the Holy Rosary: the weapon to be used to overcome the power of evil, "The Rosary is the weapon that today you have to use to fight and to win this bloody battle." Behold the reason for the Year of the Rosary.

"The Rosary is the golden chain that binds you to my Heart" (May 1, 1993). And a chain that always endures.

There was a priest who had made the consecration to the Immaculate Heart. And then for years he had moved away from the priesthood, living a bad life. In a vision a soul saw that this priest was in the depths of an ocean, and was lost. But from where he was there was like a small thread that linked him to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This small thread was the consecration that he had made to her Immaculate Heart. Our Lady made it clear that with that little thread She had pulled him up, from where he was, and had lead him to salvation.

The Rosary it is the lightning rod that will keep far from you, and from those who are dear to you, the fire of the chastisement; it is the sure means of having me always close to you” (May 1, 1983).

Therefore, you understand the importance of this Year for us, of this Apostolic Letter on the Rosary, in the moment in which one enters into battle, which appears to be a sure victory for the big giants that dominate this earth. We go into this battle, Our Lady offers us this weapon, she wants to be with us. It is the lightning rod that protects you from the punishment of fire. This is the third secret of Fatima: the angel with the flaming sword is torching the world. Our Lady holds back this fire with her hands. The lightning rod, which will defend us, is the hand of our heavenly Mother.

But now entering the strongest moment of this battle, the Pope illuminated by the Holy Spirit, proclaims the Year of the Rosary and writes the apostolic letter on the Rosary.

Here I must tell you a few things.

Of course I can not share the opinion of our dear American Father, when he said that the Pope read the messages of blue Book and they inspired him to write the apostolic letter on the Rosary and on the Eucharist. We can not think this way, absolutely not.

It could be that the Pope read the book, as it may be that he has not read it. But there is one thing that is striking: in the letter and in the encyclical there are identical points, sometimes expressed in almost the same words, on what is written in the book and on what the Pope writes.

If he read it, it may be that he was inspired in something; if he had not read it, it means that the Heavenly Mother has expressed to the Pope, with whom she has a particular and special relationship, what is expressed here in the Book. There are other explanations.

For us this is a cause for joy. It is a fact that indicates that the Church tacitly approves us. We are so in the heart of the Church, that when we see that the Magisterium publishes some documents, these documents are already deeply inserted in the Book of the messages of our Movement.

I quote three points, but there are many others. For example, Our Lady says: With the Rosary you can affect the national and international events. The Pope in his Apostolic Letter says the same thing.

The Pope says that Our Lady asks for the Rosary.
The prayer of my predilection is the holy Rosary. d For this reason, in my many apparitions I always ask that it be recited. I unite myself with those who say it; I request it from all with solicitude and maternal preoccupation” (October 7, 1983).

These words are found in “Rosarium Viriginis Mariae”, 7:
Well-known are the occasions in the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries on which the Mother of Christ made her presence felt and her voice heard, in order to exhort the People of God to this form of contemplative prayer. I would mention in particular, on account of their great influence on the lives of Christians and the authoritative recognition they have received from the Church, the apparitions of Lourdes and of Fatima; these shrines continue to be visited by great numbers of pilgrims seeking comfort and hope”.

The second point of coincidence: the Rosary is a simple and profound prayer.

Simple yet profound, it still remains, at the dawn of this third millennium, a prayer of great significance, destined to bring forth a harvest of holiness… The Rosary is my favorite prayer. A marvelous prayer! Marvelous in its simplicity and its depth” (Rosarium Viriginis Mariae, 1-2).

Why is the holy rosary so efficacious? Because it is a simple prayer, a humble one, and it forms you spiritually in littleness, in meekness, in simplicity of heart.
Today Satan is successfully conquering everything with the spirit of pride and of rebellion against God, and he is terrified by those who follow your heavenly Mother along the road of littleness and humility. While this prayer is despised by the great and the proud, it is recited with so much love and so much joy by my little ones, by the poor, by children, by the humble, the suffering, by the many, many faithful souls who have welcomed my invitation
Satan's pride will again be conquered by the humility of little ones, and the Red Dragon will find himself decisively humiliated and defeated when I bind him not by a great chain but by a very frail cord: the holy Rosary” (October 7, 1983).

The Rosary is a Christological prayer.

The Pope says in “Rosarium Viriginis Mariae”, 3:
To recite the Rosary is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary the face of Christ.”

John Paul II, (Angelus, October 27, 2002): “The Virgin Mary is the unrivalled model of Christian contemplation. From Jesus' conception until his resurrection and ascension into heaven, the Mother kept the gaze of her immaculate heart on her divine Son: a wonderful, penetrating, sorrowful and radiant insight (cf. ibid.). It is this Marian look full of faith and love, that the individual Christian and the ecclesial community make their own when they recite the Rosary”.

By contemplating its mysteries, you are led to understand the plan of Jesus, as spelled out in all of his life, from the Incarnation to the consummation of his glorious Pasch, and thus you penetrate ever more profoundly into the mystery of the redemption. And you begin to understand this mystery of love through your heavenly Mother; moving through the passageway of her Heart, you gain possession of the immense treasure of the divine and burning charity of the Heart of Christ” (October 7, 1983).

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Heart of Jesus. The way to penetrate deeper into the mystery of Christ is the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Moving on from there, we come not only to see, but to possess the treasure of the divine and ardent charity of the Heart of Jesus.

Dear brothers, this is why Our Lady, the Woman clothed with the sun, goes in search of those who have had from the Father the privilege of being small.

The Holy Father says: "I thank Thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes" (Mt 11:25). Do not be surprised, if there are in the Church many clergymen, many theologians, many of the faithful who understand nothing of the Movement. You must not be discouraged. Jesus with the above-mentioned words praises the Father for his designs. "For such was thy gracious will”. What was His gracious will? His gracious will was to open the Kingdom to the little ones.

Here, with the Marian Movement of Priests Our Lady forms the army of her little ones and she tests them. She allows temptations of every kind, misunderstandings on all sides, sometimes she even permits the most humiliating and painful marginalization. She permits these, so that you become those little children, so small, so as to be of infants ... Because with the voice of the little ones and “infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes, to still the enemy and the avenger" (Ps 8:2).

Infants who can only cry, invoking Dad and Mom, infants who can only repeat the words of the Father and of the Madonna.

This prayer is the Rosary. Done with Her, this prayer surely becomes the weapon of victory, that will defeat Satan, and will defeat all the giants in evil. All those who now appear great in evil, yes, even the powerful array of Freemasonry, which today has entered in the interior of the Church, which in an invisibly way "dominates" and spreading apostasy in her interior, will be beaten by the voice of children and of infants, by the prayer done with Mary, it will be defeated by the holy Rosary. Behold the reason for the Year of the Rosary.


I want to finish with a message that tells how with the Rosary we must club Satan. Here I remember an incident that happened to me in the early years of the Movement, when I was going in fear along the streets of the world. I was beginning to enter in the European nations; I had not yet started going to other continents.

I went to Yugoslavia, when it was all communist. And there I was once walking on the road and I see before me the devil in the form of a dog, of a bear all black and terrible: I was paralyzed with fear, I could not go on. And so it came to me spontaneously to do this: I had in my pocket the Rosary, I take the beads and I began to beat him on the head. Then I saw a strange thing: these animals, the more you try to hit them, the more they attack you. Try going against a vicious dog also with the Rosary! This instead, beating him, he went back. Seeing that he was going back, I hit him harder. And I saw that in addition to going back, became smaller. I hit him with more delight and he had become as small as a ball. I hurt him so badly that he shed tears from his eyes... And so I gave him a kick and I went forward.

The chain, with which the great Dragon is to be bound, is made up of prayer made with me and by means of me.
This prayer is that of the HOLY ROSARY.
A chain has in fact the function of first of all limiting action, then of imprisoning, and finally of making ineffective every activity of the one who has been bound by it” (October 7, 1992).

If someone goes around stealing and you chain him, he can no longer go around stealing. If one is chained, he is no longer free in his movements. He is limited in his movements, it is made impossible for him to act and then he is put in prison, where he must remain. He can not escape. because he is chained.

The chain of the holy rosary has first of all the function of limiting the action of my Adversary. Every rosary which you recite with me has the effect of restricting the action of the Evil One, of drawing souls away from his pernicious influence, and of giving greater impetus to the expansion of goodness in the life of many of my children.
The chain of the holy rosary has also the effect of imprisoning Satan, that is, of making his action impotent, and of diminishing and weakening more and more the force of his diabolical power.
And so, each rosary which is recited well deals a mighty blow to the power of evil, and it represents one part of his reign which is destroyed.
The chain of the holy rosary brings about, in the end, the result of making Satan completely harmless.
His great power is destroyed” (7 October 1992).

What do the legions of giants do? Inactive giants! Paralyzed giants! Stupid giants! In this way Satan is rendered totally harmless!

All the evil spirits are cast into the pool of fire and sulfur; the door is shut by me with the key of the power of Christ, and thus they will no longer be able to go out into the world to do harm to souls.
You understand now, my beloved children, why, in these last times of the battle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the great Dragon, I am asking you to multiply everywhere the cenacles of prayer, with the recitation of the holy rosary, meditation on my word, and your consecration to my Immaculate Heart” (7 October 1992).

She will crush the head, while he will bruise your heel (cfr. Gen. 3:15).

The heel is us, because we are the little children of Mary, for whom he sets pitfalls; but precisely with this heel She will crush his head.

With these (with these Cenacles), you make it possible for your heavenly Mother to take action in binding Satan, so that I may thus carry out my mission of crushing his head, that is to say, of defeating him once and for all, shutting him up in his abyss of fire and sulfur.
The humble and fragile cord of the holy rosary forms the strong chain with which I will take as my prisoner the dark ruler of the world, the enemy of God and of his faithful servants.
Thus the pride of Satan will once again be defeated by the power of the little, the humble and the poor” (7 October 1992).

So I conclude with the last words of the Pope in his homily for the beatification of the shepherd children at Fatima on May 13, 2000:
Father, to you I offer praise, for what you have hidden from the learned and the clever you have revealed to the merest children. Father, to you I offer praise for all your children, from the Virgin Mary, your humble Servant, to the little shepherds, Francisco and Jacinta” (May 13, 2000).

I thank you, Father, for all of you if, with the help of this week of the Spiritual Exercises made in the form of Cenacle, you have succeeded in truly becoming little children of Mary.

And so we can sing, together with the angels and saints in heaven, along with the brothers and sisters who are purifying themselves in purgatory, along with the pilgrim Church, suffering and crucified, we can sing this hymn of our victory:

By the mouth of babes and infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes, to still the enemy and the avenger" (Ps 8:2).

Praise be Jesus Christ!
