He promised a retinue of nine angels every time he approached the Eucharistic table throughout his life as retribution for whoever performed this cult, as well as the liberation from the purgatory of that individual and his family after death.

The devotion transcended national borders, was endorsed by numerous bishops, and even received indulgences on August 8, 1851, from the hands of the holy Pope Pius IX. This rosary is an effective tool and you can be sure of the angelic presence at your side and for the person, you are praying for.
