The Fatima Prayers
My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
(repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!
O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
There are many devotions we can practice throughout the day, but one of the most efficacious of these, besides the holy Rosary, is the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. There are various versions - long ones and short ones - dedicated to Our Lady and it is Karl D. Keller's intention here to share the approved devotion with Nihil Obstat
from over a century ago with readers. After a brief introduction as to the Hours of Matins, Prime, Tierce, Sext, None, Vespers
that encompass the entire day, today is presented the First Nocturn of Matins, which is the longest and most complex of the daily cycle of prayers. They are enhanced with sources from which some of the comments are taken in an effort to encourage devout souls to intensify their spiritual exercises in this time of the Great Apostasy. Karl shares inspiration for the Little Office with part two. Matins - First Nocturn
During this Paschaltide we celebrate the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and Roman Pontiff Saint Leo the Great. This phenomenal saint was so vigilant and masterful in all he did from staving off the devastating Arian heresy, to reinstating solid doctrine when the Robbers Council sought to undermine the Faith (sound familiar to another Robber Council held from 1962 to 1965?) to miraculously stopping the "Scourge of God" Attila the Hun in his tracks at the gates of Rome through the grace of God and Leo's heroic virtue. This "Defender of Rome" was the great Codifier of Orthodoxy
In Book Four, Chapter Thirty-Eight of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, Jesus Christ's words to the bride about not putting trust in dreams but, rather, being wary of them, no matter how happy or sad they are, because the devil mixes falsehoods with truth in dreams, and intentionally misleads for he is the father of lies as Our Lord warns in listing many of the errors that occur in the world as Jesus alerts the bride and all of us on how we can Be the Devil's Nightmare and Resist
Too many seem to gage that the hierarchs, who signed the heretical Vatican II documents, such as Lumen Gentium
, automatically became heretics at that time, are missing the point. Griff Ruby is determined to point out their error and set them straight with the second part of a multi-part series Pinning down the "Perpe-traitors"
John Gregory presents his magnificent reflection on the First Joyful Mystery. He asks what greater joy can there be than to be told by a heavenly messenger of the highest order - St. Gabriel the Archangel - that the Almighty Father has created you for all time for this moment? John reflects in the mysteries of The Annunciation
Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in the Cincinnati area presents an 8 minute sermon to the children that was first delivered in 2007 in which he spoke on the Annunciation of Our Lady
Though the first Sunday following Easter is called Low Sunday, in truth St. John the Evangelists leaves us with a spiritual high in both his Epistle and Gospel, emphasizing how faith conquers all and is the answer to believing in Christ the Lord. The Haydock Commentary, available courtesty of John Gregory, is available for Low Sunday - Dominus meus, et Deus meus. My Lord and my God
Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph's Minor Seminary in Rathdrum, Idaho at the City of Mary presents a 13 minute sermon for Low Sunday - or as is known in some circles "Quasi modo Sunday" from the Introit of today's Mass - as Father urges us to Make Acts of Faith Everyday
His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson's Eleison Comments from Maundy Thursday and Holy Saturday are warnings. As a true shepherd, Bishop Williamson reaches out to those priests still within the confines of the Society of St. Pius X to warn them of the dire direction they are heading if they stubbornly cling to the path laid out by Bishop Bernard Fellay who seeks conciliation with the CONciLIAR church. Just as they evidently did not learn from Campos and and recent defections, so also they don't seem to realize what is contained in the Doctrinal Declaration that basically sells out Catholic Truth and ...See more of OPEN LETTER TO PRIESTS of the SOCIETY of ST. PIUS X
Karl D. Keller wants the faithful to know that, contrary to what you might have believed, there is a misnomer in the title of the apparition in Quito, Ecuador that prior to now has been known as "Our Lady of Good Success", but the title is misleading for the Blessed Virgin Mary herself has foretold what the title truly means, just as she imparted to Mother Mariana. See more as Karl explains in part one of a multi-series on Our Lady of the Great Event
There always seems to be a blogalogian these days who thinks he knows better than the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church and, whether willfully or stupidly out of pride, seems intent on undermining that which alone offers hope for bringing the true Church out of Her 55-year eclipse and for perpetuating the true Faith. But these so-called 'experts' on the blog don't really know their Faith and Griff Ruby is determined to set them straight with the first part of a multi-part series One Cannot Subsist On Error
