The Remnant



“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” —Rev. 12:17

The Book of Revelation speaks of the end times and the people of God, a remnant which satan will make war against and he will do so with everything and everyone he can use.

The definition of remnant is that which remains of an original body or substance, or a small piece of something left over from its original. It is identical to the original but in a smaller portion.

The remnant are a people of integrity, who love truth and honesty: “The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies, neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down and none shall make them afraid.” —Zeph. 3:13

Although satan deceives the world, he does not succeed in deluding the remnant, for they are loyal to God. They keep the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus:

“The remnant of her seed keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus” —Rev. 12:17

The Remnant Rosary is praying the Life of Jesus in union with Mary who said yes to that Life. (Lk. 1:29, 38; 2:19, 51; Jn. 2:1,5; 19:25-27; Acts 1:14)

The Mysteries are the inner room of meeting (Mt. 6:6), a storeroom where new and old treasures are brought forth (Mt. 13:52)

The Rosary is a window through which I can look out and see God’s view of things.”

The Blessed Mother, Mary Messenger of Peace is loved in my life; the Remnant Rosary has given to this love that form and expression which is most beautiful and desirable.                                                                                                                                                              –Seraphim
