Archangel Gabriel
Luke 1:26

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent form God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And Coming in, he said to her, "Hail favored one!

The Holy Rosary and the Hail Mary

The Holy Rosary is said as a reminder of the events that happened since the apparition of the Angel Gabriel. There are 40 Hail Mary's said in a full Rosary. The Catholic Church says that saying the Holy Rosary is like a blow to the head to the Devil.  The Larger beads of the Holy Rosary Necklace represent each Mystery or Miraculous Event during Jesus and Mary's Years

You, Bethlehem-Ephrathah,
too small to be among the clans of Judah,
From you shall come forth for me
one who is to be ruler in Israel;
Whose origin is from of old,
from ancient times.
(Therefore the Lord will give them up, until the time
when she who is to give birth has borne,
And the rest of his brethren shall return
to the children of Israel.)
He shall stand firm and shepherd his flock
by the strength of the LORD,
in the majestic name of the LORD, his God;
And they shall remain, for now his greatness
shall reach to the ends of the earth;
he shall be peace.
