This prayer is said to have been found under the Sepulchre where Jesus was buried. It
is believed to have been sent by the Holy See to the Emperor Charles V who was
going to war against his enemies. According to legend, some claim some amazing promises such as he who prays this prayer, or hears it read or carries it about
with him shall not die a sudden death. He shall not be burned or drowned
or poisoned, nor fall into the hands of his enemies, nor be vanquished
in battle. A mother who reads this prayer or hears it read or carries it
about her, will be happily delivered, and when the baby is
born, if this prayer be put on it's right side it will be preserved
from a number of accidents. He who carries this prayer about him shall
be preserved from epilepsy. If this prayer be put on a person in an epileptic
fit, he or she will be relieved if not cured. Our Lord has promised to
bless him who recites or procures this prayer for himself or others, and
to punish him who scoffs at it. He who reads this prayer daily shall be
warned of the approach of his death, three days, by a divine sign. (source: Catholic Prayers)
In bringing you a feature first published three years ago, Editor Michael Cain presents another VerbumQUO for this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross with the VerbumQUO today being Crucis, which is the Latin for "of the Cross", the singular possessive of the genitive and taken from today's Introit, Collect, Epistle, Secret and Communion for today's Proper of the Mass for the Finding of the True Cross Nos autem. The Holy Cross is the focal point of our lives for which we venerate and carry with us daily. As Christ showed that there can be no Resurrection without the Cross, there can be no Victory without the Cross for us. We must be willing to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Only then can we be assured of sharing in the triumph. Cain explains in
By this Sign we will Conquer
As you can see, we are back up and running daily after a horrendous period when our system crashed during Lent, making our Lent most meaningful in realizing what penance really means, considering we lost most of our software programs when the mother board fried. Thanks to Griff Ruby, the files were recovered, but we are still at a disadvantage without the applicable software programs to run the files. We are slowly instituting the process of building up our software library once more. Please be patient. We also remind you that we need donations in order to do this. Could you please help us in this modest request? We have no compunction in informing you that we are running on fumes. This is our mayday alert that we desperately need your help. We have received no bailout from anyone nor do we expect such, but we do expect those who visit this site to ask themselves how they can help. We ask where are the "Good Samaritans" out there? Other than a few, and we do mean "few" loyal and regular benefactors, everyone else seems to think we can operate without donations. In the demonic despot Barack Hussein Obama's world that might work by printing up more money and taxing everyone for it, but in the real world the reality is that we dearly need everyone to pitch in and help. As Dr. Thomas Droleskey has written often on his own site, if everyone who logs on once a week sent one dollar there'd be no need to ask again. That amount - times the number of visitors per week for The DailyCatholic - would basically set us up for the year with over $25,000. just there. However, we know that won't happen considering the apathy and modernist philosophy that has seeped into society today where so many consider themselves entitled. They seem to think they can use things for free with little consideration toward those, who have not only spent many, many years in learning and intense study (not to mention costs), but also continue to labor long in time and research to provide Catholic truth and information that would, in a true republic or monarchy, be duly rewarded or reciprocated in trade in the manner that made the guilds so successful and so Catholic. Did Our Lord not say, "a laborer is worthy of his hire" in St. Luke 10: 7? What say you? Won't you help us rebound?
On this first Sunday, the third day of Mary's Month of May, the MYOSOTIS is presented to represent THANKSGIVING. This bluebell-like flower is most appropriate for some say it was the only thing that bloomed on Calvary after the Crucifixion of our Lord and Savior and therefore most appropriate for today's Feast of the Finding of the True Cross by Saint Helena. If we should offer thanksgiving for anything, it is for the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross in which we are saved and which is re-enacted daily in an unbloody manner the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The holy Sacrifice of the Mass enables us to pray every day as if everything depends on God and work with devotion, as St. Helena and all the saints did, for the Social Kingship of Christ as if it depends on us.

The beloved disciple Saint John the Evangelist
was granted the blessing of the vision of a woman crowned with twelve stars, clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet. According to expert commentators, most specifically the Haydock Commentary in the Douay-Rheims version, this woman is the Blessed Virgin Mary, with her virtues and her privileges, especially that of her divine maternity. Thus originated the Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary
, which Saint John Calasanctius, Saint John Berchmans
and many other saints made it a practice to recite frequently, especially during Mary's Month of May.
In order to make this prayer more attractive, Saint Louis Marie de Montfort added to each Hail Mary one of the praises of the Blessed Virgin, with the invocation: "Rejoice, O Virgin Mary; rejoice a thousand times."
It is this prayer which St. Louis gave to his religious families (The Montfort Fathers and the Daughters of Wisdom) as their morning prayer. He also recommends it to all those who embrace the devotion of the holy and loving slavery of Jesus through Mary. We combine with this beautiful prayer at the very beginning the designated flower and virtue for the day throughout Mary's month for she is the Queen of the May. You can print it out so that you have a copy to pray each day at Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary Devotion
This prayer replaces the Angelus during Paschaltide

Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee do we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen. Composed by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church. That would be Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day when The Great Apostasy has arrived. It is in looking to this holy Doctor that we can take great hope and courage to stay the course and fight for the Faith as he did sixteen centuries ago. It was this stauch defender of Catholic truth, this Alexandrian Bishop who persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes. He was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the persevereance of men like Saint Athanasius. Against all odds this Alexandrian Bishop persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes and was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the perseverance of men like Saint Athanasius to whom we call on for intercession today when the VaticantwoArians had usurped the True Church and eclipsed Her, driving true Catholics into hiding to practice their faith just as Athanasius was forced to do seventeen hundred years ago. The more things change, as we see in today's Gospel, the more they stay the same for God's infernal enemy is our enemy and we should not fear man, but he who can destroy the soul. St. Athanasius is an ideal example of staying the course for he remains the
