The gospel for the Sunday within the Octave of the Sacred Heart of Jesus features the parable of the lost sheep. While we have been striving to reach Novus Ordo Catholics and convincing those in the traditional movement who stubbornly resist and recognize Jorge Bergoglio as a true pope, we need to expand our scope to include other lost sheep such as our Christian brethren in the Protestant sects. So many of the latter carry with them some of the truths of the Catholic Church because their non-divine founders (read heretics because to leave the Catholic Church one commits the sin of heresy or apostasy) originally broke away from the true Church and kept several traditions while varying on others as man is wont to do in establishing a man-made church. They are beginning to realize, thanks to the bizarre apostasy of the Marxist Modernist Bergoglio, and the fact that Jesus Christ founded only one Church on earth and that was the Church He endowed to St. Peter as the first Pope as the inerrant divine scriptures proclaim His words in St. Matthew 16: 18-19:
"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of Heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven."
The Haydock Commentary refutes Protestant interpretation that this does not refer to the Catholic Church for indeed it does. Note the words Thou art Peter:
"As St. Peter, by divine revelation, here made a solemn profession of his faith of the divinity of Christ; so in recompense of this faith and profession, our Lord here declares to him the dignity to which he is pleased to raise him: viz., that he to whom he had already given the name of Peter, signifying a Rock, St. John 1. 42, should be a rock indeed, of invincible strength, for the support of the building of the Church; in which building he should be, next to Christ himself, the chief foundation stone, in quality of chief pastor, ruler, and governor; and should have accordingly all fulness of ecclesiastical power, signified by the keys of the kingdom of Heaven."
For the words Upon this Rock
"The words of Christ to Peter, spoken in the vulgar language of the Jews which our Lord made use of, were the same as if he had said in English, Thou art a Rock, and upon this rock I will build My Church. So that, by the plain course of the words, Peter is here declared to be the rock, upon which the church was to be built: Christ himself being both the principal foundation and founder of the same. Where also note, that Christ, by building His House, that is, His Church, upon a rock, has thereby secured it against all storms and floods, like the wise builder, St. Matthew 7: 24, 25."
Finally, for the words The gates of hell
"That is, the powers of darkness, and whatever Satan can do, either by himself, or his agents. For as the Church is here likened to a house, or fortress, built on a rock; so the adverse powers are likened to a contrary house or fortress, the gates of which, that is, the whole strength, and all the efforts it can make, will never be able to prevail over the City or Church of Christ. By this promise we are fully assured, that neither idolatry, heresy, nor any pernicious error whatsoever shall at any time prevail over the church of Christ."
The very fact that today's Modernist church in Rome has apostasized from what Christ established and liberally spread heresies over the past 57 years is documented in links we provided last week with Proof of the heresies of the apostate Vatican 2 'popes'. Everyone of these heresies were condemned by previous true Popes and Councils who comprise the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church. The question therefore is: have the gates of hell prevailed? No! They cannot via Our Lord's assurance. Therefore, if we are to subscribe that the heretical 'popes' in the V2 CONciLIAR church are true, then it would mean the gates of hell have prevailed. Ergo, we know that is not possible for heretics are put outside the Church. Thus a heretic cannot be a pope, let alone Catholic as you shall see below.
What those true priests, who have remained faithful to all the Church stood for before Vatican 2 without one iota of compromise, stand for is in great contradiction to what is represented to the world today as the "Catholic Church" for we, as Traditional Catholics loyal to the perennial, infallible Magisterium of the Church realize it is not Catholic but rather a counterfeit church that, via the heresies of the Second Vatican Council, eclipsed the true Church. Jesus said clearly in the Gospel of St. Matthew 7: 15-20,
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits you shall know them...Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them."
So we ask you, where are the good fruits of the CONciLIAR church of Vatican 2? Right! There are none! Do you want to cling to an evil tree that is destined for the furnace? That is the destination of the Modernist church of Rome, described as the Harlot of Babylon in chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of the Apocalypse. We ask in all charity, please, please connect the dots.
The rot of Vatican 2 has grown so out of control and perverted that today several do not understand what defines a heretic as heresies abound. Yet, those in the "Recognize-and-Resist" camps continue the ridiculous spin, tripping all over themselves, that Jorge Bergoglio is a true 'pope' while all the evidence belies that statement, especially in light of all the heresies attributed to him. Thus, we again present a two and a half minute video by Epichea Productions and first posted by Fr. Anthony Cekada on his Quidlibet to wake up the faithful to connect the dots on what constitutes a heretic. We recommend going full screen to be able to better grasp its veracity. This shows clearly there is no room for doubt: The Vatican 2 'popes' have been heretics, ergo not true Roman Pontiffs. Flee the false church or forever rue it.
This is why we highly recommend the following sources to keep all abreast of events as fast as they are spinning out of control along with their causes and consequences, as well as inspiration from other trusted ports, we confidently point you to NovusOrdoWatch.org and Christorchaos.com for articles and links, as well as four blogs worth your while, Introibo Ad Altare Dei, Bishop Donald Sanborn's In Veritate, Fr. Cekada's Quidlibet, and the satirical, but on-point Call Me Jorge and the longstanding Traditio to name just a few of the reliable sites you can trust. There are others, but most of these update almost daily.
All we ask is that you pray for the grace to see the veracity of what is presented. It can be a tremendous task to leave the comfort zone of a religion that has relaxed so much, but isn't it worth it for your salvation? That was the decision we came to after realizing how much we were duped - yes, we're not alone - for as Jesus said in St. Matthew 24: 24-25: "insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand."
We've been warned, and yet so many refuse to connect the dots. It behooves you to do so and do so soon. We strongly urge you to forego some TV tonight and devote a few hours to listen to the facts that leave no doubt. Click on the Tradcast graphic to the right to hearing what's really happening to our beloved faith. Knowing Marxist Mr. Jorge Bergoglio's track record we shouldn't be surprised that the world is thrilled with him and Amoris Laetitia, while many Catholics are shocked. Traditional Catholics are not shocked because we saw it coming and predicted this very chaos. For all of this the best source for what is happening in separating the lambs on the right from the goats on the left is Novus Ordo Watch which provides links to several sources on reactions to "Joy of Love."
To affirm the above and assist you in this truth, we present a thorough talk by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn, Rector of Most Holy Trinity Seminary, first published last week on Novus Ordo Watch. We encourage you to set aside an hour and a half to truly help your soul and clarify what is really happening by listening to his magnificent and eye-opening complete overview of the Great Apostasy in: The Novus Ordo Church, Vatican II, and Sedevacantism. It's a good idea to listen to the Questions and Answers after his talk that provides rock-solid reasons why Sedevacantists have been right all along and we pray more will receive the grace to see why and flee the Novus Ordo.

For further proof of the heresies of the false 'popes' who have ruled the "church of Darkness" for 57 years, we refer you to NovusOrdoWatch's links on Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Francis), Fr. Joseph Ratzinger (aka Benedict XVI), Bishop Karol Wojtyla (aka John Paul II) and Angelo Cardinal Roncalli (aka John XXIII). For why the latter's successors was not a true pope, see Archbishop Giovanni Montini (aka Paul VI) and his successor Monsignor Albino Luciani (aka John Paul I). If you cannot connect the dots after seeing the evidence, then there is no hope you ever will. If you want to take your chances with testing the fires with the bad tree, then, by all means, ignore what we have provided. But if you truly value the state of your soul, you will take this very seriously. Remember, don't take our word for it, see what holy Mother Church has decreed and compare.
A lot has been said about the heretical 'Apostolic' declaration Amoris Laetitia, but the best summary is provided at TRADCAST from Novus Ordo Watch. So stay tuned to our DailyCatholic Twitter Feed for the latest as well as the editor's SANCTUS facebook page
How many lambs will be placed on the Lord's right? With the relaxation and total negligence of many Catholic disciplines today, that number might be smaller than you might think because
the vast majority of the sheep are so lost because the so-called shepherds of the modern church, while masquerading as priests and prelates, are truly wolves who have ravaged souls for the past fifty years or so. Other than traditional priests and bishops ordained in the true Sacrament of Holy Orders, all those "ordained" or "consecrated" since 1968 with the man-made rite of Giovanni Montini have no more authority or power than a protestant minister, who, as Pope Leo XIII perfectly put it, "are completely null and utterly void." The fact is not since His Holiness Pope Pius XII have we had a true shepherd sitting in the Chair of Peter. That has greatly contributed to the chaos the world faces today because since the early part of the Conclave of 1958, when the Holy Ghost withdrew His protection because a false church was determined to eclipse the true Church. How long that will last is anybody's guess, but the more we see, the further away the counterfeit CONciLIAR church is out-protestanting the Protestants, and even the heathens! You see, through the Vatican 2 secular humanism man has replaced God!
I know it's a shock to most to realize they're barking up the wrong tree, the one without the true barque of Peter. It was to us when we connected all the dots and finally came to the conclusion that the only syllogism possible to verify Christ's words was that the true Church remains in an interminable interregnum, chiefly because a heretic cannot be a pope, not to mention how those men occupying the Chair since the death of His Holiness of happy memory Pope Pius XII's death on October 9, 1958. The links we provide above to other ports verifies this fact.
Finally, it has to be said. As much as we hate to beg, we have no choice. We remind you of the advice of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Augustine on almsgiving:
If you have benefited in anyway from what we have published, we humbly ask your help to keep this publication on line. We know that so many of our readers are unable to assist at a true traditional Latin Mass because of where they live and use the daily liturgy we publish to gain the efficacious graces possible through their prayers at home. We remain the only publication in the world to provide such and are grateful to God that we can provide such nourishment for souls. We urgently ask if you can contribute anything in these tight times, we would be so appreciative for the coffers are truly bare. Think of all the untold millions being thrown into the election process this year.If you've contributed to a campaign, can't you spare a crumb for this apostolate to convert apostates? If you are still in the category of the lukewarm, then you will pass over this plea and move on to the next thing that tickles your fancy. But if you truly want to commit, we offer you the opportunity below to put that commitment into action for the good of saving souls. If you have not donated before, isn't it only right and proper to donate now? Whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated. Just click the button below or send a check/money order to the address below. We are a bonafide non-profit 501c(3) religious association and all donations are tax-deductible. Whatever you would have contributed toward a bloated political campaigns or thrown away in the CONciLIAR collection plates that only goes to covering up the sins of its presbyters and false primates while destroying all semblence of Catholicism, why not earmark it for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic? After all, shouldn't we all take St. Paul's strong counsel in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 to heart and "stand firm, and hold the traditions which you have learned"?
"Generosity will save a person from Eternal Death, it will even blot out any sin.....because Almsgiving is prayer...it brings graces, it cleanses the soul from guilt and punishment.....What good is faith without works, if we desert our fellow man in his need.?"

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a sixteen-minute sermon given a few years ago on the Sunday within the Octave of the Sacred Heart (Third Sunday after Pentecost) by Father Michael Oswalt, presently pastor of St. Benedict's Traditional Catholic church in Alabama. He reminds us of how powerful our enemy devil is and why we must be vigilant and sober, steadfast in the faith because we are vulnerable to him if think we can fight him by ourselves. We need God's grace and mercy, and thus cannot afford to be lax or the devil will penetrate our castles and our fortress will be demolished through mortal sin. God, in His mercy gives us so many chances and loves the sinner but hates the sin. So should we or we will be devoured as St. Peter warns in his epistle. Father shows how God extends His protection through the confessional and how all of Heaven rejoices over the return of a sinner. If we do not take advantage of this infirmary of Divine Mercy, we will not have enough ammo to fend off the roaring lion away and will be devoured. Finally, Father concludes that we need to submit to His will and honor Him and work on our salvation with fear and trembling since it is our urgent duty out of love for our Creator as Father explains in his sermon on Be Steadfast In The Faith
John Gregory provides the commentary for the Third Sunday after Pentecost which is always the Sunday within the Octave of the Sacred Heart. Father George Leo Haydock became famous for compiling the Fathers' and Doctors' discernment and incorporating it into the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. For this Sunday we encounter one of the most oft quoted passages of Sacred Scripture, the eighth verse of chapter five of the first epistle of St. Peter whereby Christ's chosen first Pope employs the imagery of the devil being like a roaring lion always on the prowl to devour souls. That is why it ties in so well with today's Gospel of the rejoicing of one sinner returning to the fold. With satan roaming it truly is a victory worth celebrating when a soul is saved from this savage unearthly beast.
Continuing sermons for this week, today is the feast of St. Boniface given by Bishop Daniel Dolan back in 2009 at St. Gertrude the Great as we shares the holiness of this bold saint, known as the Apostle of Germany. The bishop prefaces his sermon on the greatness of the Holy Ghost and on devotion to the Sacred Heart. Boniface reached out to those who were not Catholic and persevered receiving the name Boniface from the pope to replace his birth name of Winfred. To prove to the pagans they were barking up the wrong tree by worshipping a large oak, he took an axe to the tree. Perhaps we need to take an axe to the CONciLIAR church today to shock the clueless sheeple out of their lukewarm lethargy to realize it is not Catholic. Oh, if only we had a Boniface today. St. Boniface
In Book Four of Chapter Forty-Five of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden we see the bride's lamentation before the divine Majesty. She presents the four sisters, Humility, Abstinence, Contentment, and Charity, who are all daughters of Jesus Christ the pure, all-merciful and all-just King. She laments that they are rejected by the world as worthless but realizes these four wise sisters have chosen the narrow path through their virtue. While the world looks askance at them, they eagerly embrace and encourage the women of destitution who are the four sisters of the dark side known as Pride, Desire, Excess, and Simony. They are truly the daughters of the dark king who is the devil, and though they are now called noblewomen they will wither and die for they are whores of satan, while the four virtuous sisters of grace will live on brighter and more beautiful than ever. Such is the grace of God.
Beauty or the Beast
Over the last few steps we've been dealing with how the devil is so devious, and in step sixteen we treat the origins of these spirits who all started out as good angels, bestowed by their Creator with anything anyone would ever want. Yet, pride played a role in lucifer's revolt and the rest, as they say, is history. It is the oldest story in the world, yay, even before the world, and it makes one's decision in life very simple. It's either obey God and His Laws, which include adhering to the truths and traditions handed down by Christ and His Apostles through the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church He established on earth, or face the consequences of those who choose to go it their own way, a way that leads straight to the gates of hell. It is either enjoying the company of the angels in Heaven forever and ever - per omnia saecula saeculorum - or realizing one must abandon all hope, all ye who enter here (hell) - omnes relinquite spes, o vos intrantes. Hell is so very, very final and Christ shows us how to avoid the lasting agony of eternal damnation, but only if we are willing to obey His holy Will. It's our choice in choosing sides as we see in Step Sixteen, Good and Evil Spirits
Even though his feast is superseded this year, today is the feast of the holy Apostle of St. Paul, the Levite St. Barnabas - which means "son of consolation" - and Bishop Daniel Dolan shares a short sermon on this Apostle baptized on Pentecost. He detached himself from all worldly things and mapped out his salvation beginning by persuading St. Paul to preach to the Gentiles, hence Paul became the "Apostle of the Gentiles" thanks to St. Barnabas. Barnabas always considered himself as the precursor for St. Paul wherever he went, taking after St. John the Baptist. It was after the holy St. Barnabas that the Barnabites were founded at the height of the Protestant Revolution. As Bishop Dolan points out there is a wonderful oil of consolation left to all of us that we can do more for our Lord as explained in his sermon on St. Barnabas
The month of June is an ideal time to contact a true priest to have your home enthroned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, especially in this time within the Octave of the feast of the Sacred Heart for as the summer creeps in satan can enter so easily through technology, acquaintances, what not, especially if one does not stay attentive and busy, and focused on improving their spiritual life while working on self-discipline in the face of so many temptations. There are beautiful devotions in the Consecration in the home with prayers that you can repeat monthly, weekly, or more often and on major feasts. In this time when many, because of distance, cannot get to a true Mass, it is the next best thing to have your home as a haven for the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. See
Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the Home
Week Two Click on the date below for that day's traditional liturgy.
Unique this year is the fact we honor three holy Doctors of the Church this week beginning with Monday's feast of the holy friar St. Anthony of Padua, followed immediately on Tuesday by the saintly Bishop St. Basil the Great, and ending the week with St. Ephrem the Deacons. His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan provides inspiring sermons for Basil and Ephrem, while the late Fr. Martin Stepanich, OFM speaks of St. Anthony and the Blessed Mother Mary. The theme for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost is "Fishers of Souls" as John Gregory has graciously provided the Haydock Commentary on this Sunday when we officially begin the "Green" season in reference to the vestments throughout the Time after Pentecost, considering last three Sundays were white or gold vestments. On Saturday we begin the nine-day Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help that concludes on the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, the eve of the Our Lady's Feast on Monday.
John Gregory provides the commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost which offiially begins the "Green" season in reference to the vestments throughout the Time after Pentecost. Father George Leo Haydock became famous for compiling the Fathers' and Doctors' discernment and incorporating it into the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. For this Sunday the theme is that we will groan in and struggle in pain within ourselves while waiting for redemption as St. Paul relates in today's Epistle and in the Gospel those creatures swimming in the sea of fallen human nature in this world can only be rescued through the grace of God via those whom He has sent to reel in souls as fishers of men.
Fishers of Souls
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nearly 16-minute sermon given five years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father points out how Jesus, pressed by the crowds got into a boat - Peter's boat - the Barque of Peter. Father explains what true Roman Catholics must believe and follow in aligning with the true Popes down throught the ages. We must reject all new religions including the false CONciLIAR church posing as Catholic. All other religions/churches are man-made and falls into error because they have not the protection of God. Father notes that we have no right to listen or accept error. We must be on guard that we do not jeopardize our faith and morals by turning to the world for truth. It is not there. We must remain united to Peter and by doing so, we are united to Christ, Who proved to Peter and all others that you don't doubt the Son of God for with Him all things are possible; without him our pride shipwrecks us. We will stay afloat only by The Grace of God
The holy Doctor St. Anthony is often depicted holding the Christ Child in such a loving, gentle manner, yet he was not so gentle on those who sought to deceive the faithful through heresy. When he died at age 36, church bells rang throughout Italy, in many with no human person ringing the bells. People attributed the bellringers to the angels who had come to earth to ring them as children wailed in the streets crying aloud, "Our dear father, Anthony is dead." But his spirit and on-going miraculous wonders have lived on for nearly 8 centuries. He's the patron saint of the poor and oppressed, the one many pray to when something or someone is lost. He so wanted to convert the Moors and was willing to be martyred. Where are the St. Anthonys today when the infidels are overrunning Christianity? Take a cue from the Hammer of Heretics
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a thirty-five-minute sermon given by the late, great traditional Theologian Father Martin Stepanich, O.F.M. who passed away on November 18, 2012 at 97 years of age, 71 in service to Our Lord and Our Lady as a holy priest. He speaks of the wisdom and intelligence of the humble Franciscan St. Anthony of Padua who was so on fire with love for Christ and His Blessed Mother and wanted to share that love with so many souls, including even offering himself as ransom to the Moors. But God had other plans for this miracle worker and Father explains how and why this hammer of heretics is so well beloved. While at times it may be difficult to listen to Father Martin due to a monotone type voice, what he has to say is so beautiful and well worth overlooking any oratorial magnificence. We encourage you to listen to his sermon on St. Anthony and Our Lady
In back to back Doctors of the Church, today the Church celebrates another of the magnificent luminaries God rose up in the 4th century. The holy bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Basil the Great also faced the intense persecutions and calumnies of the Arian bishops and suffered greatly, never complaining and living a life of austerity while his fellow Arian bishops lived high on the hog. Like his good life-long friend and fellow Doctor of the Church St. Gregory Nazianzen, he,too, came from holy stock and had two brothers who became bishops; a father, mother and sister who became saints. This Bishop of Caesarea is one of the few, along with Popes St. Leo I and St. Gregory I and St. Albert to be given the august title "Magnus" - great. For a profile of this holy Bishop and Doctor, see the Orator of Orthdoxy
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a brief but informative six-minute sermon given in 2008 by Bishop Daniel Dolan for the feast of the holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church St. Basil the Great, who, as His Excellency responds felt he wasn't doing enough and yet he became one of the greatest to wear the purple robes ever for St. Basil the Great faced his fears with the courage of grace and realized no one could defeat him for his goal was Heaven and to threaten him would only encourage him further to love God and share the Faith while soundly refuting any heretics who sought to intimidate and threatene him. The results show the successful fruits of his efforts as Bishop Dolan illustrates that we don't have to worry if we're successful if, like Basil, we do the will of God in following the example of St. Basil the Great
Saint Ephrem the Deacon, the holy Doctor and saintly Syrian, who was the second chronologically to receive such a title following Saint Athanasius, was an early luminary of the Church. Today his homeland is in ruins because the people did not follow his example nor heed his holy advice. St. Ephrem was beloved by the faithful and one called the "Prophet of his people" and a deacon who combated heretical sects and Roman emperors, not by raising his voice in anger, but through Syriac poetry in winning the people to the Faith. His works are integral to the Syrian Church. In adherence to the Gospel, Ephrem reached out and cared for the least of his brethren leaving the 99 to go in search of the one who was lost. This dedication to the will of God and uncompromisingly living the Gospel to win souls to the Lord show why he was a clarion of clarity to those suffering from the confusion of the Arian heresy. He is affectionately known as the
Harp of the Holy Ghost
With today's feast of St. Ephrem the Deacon before tomorrow's feast of Corpus Christi we present, through the courtesy of TraditionalCatholicSermons.org an eleven-minute sermon by Bishop Daniel Dolan on this holy Doctor of the Church delivered on June 18, 2009. The bishop shares the life of St. Ephrem, also spelled Ephraem, who was one of the first to proclaim and promote the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, even though he was a hermit. He relied fully on the inspiration of the Holy Ghost to convert the common people through hymns and plays to explain the orthodoxy of the holy Faith in such logical simplicity. This totally confounded the heretics who either retreated or converted. Listen to the bishop's words on St. Ephrem the Deacon
Every one of us will face the inevitable: Judgment Day. In this time when technology has run amok and everybody has an opinion on everything under the sun few think to remember that in the end only one opinion counts: God's! And it's called Judgment Day. It will be gut-check time for no one can escape the Trinity's judgment. It is truly amazing in these times when everyone talks of everything but the Last Four Things which are Death, Judgment, Heaven and hell incorporated as De Novissimis. It it truly the Final Four and we're not talking the NCAA but rather the Day of Reckoning that ultimately charts our path; a path that we choose freely by how we lived. What our destination will be will be decided by the Supreme Court in Heaven. The evidence that will tip the scales in our favor will be determined by how we lived in accord with the divine Will as we see in Step Seventeen,
In Book Four of Chapter Forty-Six of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden we see the bride's exhortation toward a man who has not treated others fairly in his mission to acquire temporal things. St. Bridget does what every Catholic should do as Jesus invokes in the gospels and as St. Paul's epistles supplicate us to do and that is to in all charity to preprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. In this particular case, she identifies who received the message of conscience and why this man, whom she does not know but loves because he is made in the image and likeness of God, needs to amend his ways, make recompense to those wronged in every way, and treat others as he would want to be treated by the divine Judge. She warns that, if he continues in his ways, God will deal him a harsh sentence.
Make Amends Now
Today we begin the nine day devotion leading up to the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. It is a beautiful devotion that was approved, with the title and icon by His Holiness Pope Pius IX. If we ever needed Heaven's help, Catholics know who to ask for that help -- the very Virgin who is known as Our Mother of Perpetual Help. We'd be fools not to turn to her and this preparation period is the perfect time to do so with the

This is one of the latest Father's Day this year, falling on the 5th Sunday after Pentecost. With that in mind it is only proper to honor the patriarchs of the family - fathers. In this age of the wussification of the dad's role, it is time to return to the era of the chivalrous chauvinist, if you will, for the head of the family needs to take charge and be accountable first and foremost for the spiritual welfare of his family, and then the temporal welfare. Too often, dads are portrayed in today's society as weak and having no clue. That should be reserved for the Obama administration, not to mention the man totally intent on destroying Catholicity in the Vatican; all of which has led to the news and entertainment media today serving as the majority of civilization's education and failing miserably. Of course, that's due to the fact civilization has lost its compass thanks to Vatican II. Prior to that catastrophic council the Church and parents worked together to raise staunch Catholic citizens. Despite unFrancis' inclination to never look back and his efforts to destroy , we should and remember dads should never lie. They should be candid with their wives, love, cherish, respect and be loyal always to her as a mother and soul mate. They should be truthful to their sons and daughters, encouraging chastity, honesty and hard work. Also, as the famous Rosary priest Fr. Patrick Peyton said so often,"The family that prays together, stays together." Evidently we haven't been praying enough because the family unit has been split apart, demeaned and perverted.
As for fathers? Well, we wouldn't be here were it not for God the Father. Having St. Joseph as our heavenly mentor and good, true Traditional priests to impart wisdom, we encourage all fathers and sons to heed their counsel for the sake of procreating Heaven and perpetuating the holy Faith. If they haven't yet, then what better day than Father's Day to take the reins of responsibility and let the world know that dads will not flee from being accountable nor be embarassed to stand for virtue. As head of the family it's imperative that they continue to fish for souls, beginning with their own family and then, like ripples in a brook, expand to reach more souls for the sake of their own salvation as well. Only then can they right the ship and place mothers back on the pedestal they richly deserve as true role models for their daughters and daughter-in-laws to emulate, for they also have the example of the greatest mother of them all - the Blessed Virgin Mary
We continue through this week with the nine day devotion leading up to the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help next Monday. It is a beautiful devotion that was approved, with the title and icon by His Holiness Pope Pius IX. If we ever needed Heaven's help, Catholics know who to ask for that help -- the very Virgin who is known as Our Mother of Perpetual Help. We'd be fools not to turn to her and this preparation period is the perfect time to do so with the
Devotions to Our Mother of Perpetual Help
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twelve-minute sermon given five years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, where he points out the theme for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost is holiness beginning with St. Peter entreating us to turn away from evil and Jesus' stern intimidation that we cannot assume we will be saved if our hearts are not true. Father cites several other passages of the gospels where Our Lord points out that we cannot take our salvation for granted, but that we should strive to be like Christ for we are temples of the Holy Ghost and have the instinctive goal of striving for holiness. Father also provides what some of the saints advised on becoming holier. It is very simple, Father emphasizes, merely: avoid evil, and do good. He encourages those who may think they could never be a saint, but often times it is through misconception that they have to be exactly like them. Father maintains that sanctity consists of the virtues we maintain because we are called to be saints. After all, saints are sinners striving to do good. So also, Father urges us to Strive For Holiness
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel of the Fifth Sunday After Pentecost with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock that if one is reconcilied with his fellow man then he will always be reconciled with God for he will remain in the state of grace, which is necessary for participating in the sacramental fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If we do not comply with our Lord's commands, the consequences are catastrophic as we see with
Make amends with thy brother before partaking at the altar
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nearly nine-minute sermon given nine years ago by Bishop Daniel Dolan, who speaks of how St. Aloysius Gonzaga was known as the Angelic youth. He is one of the saints along with St. John Bosco, as a patron saint of youth, seminarians and students. He had an Eucharistic heart, so in love was he with the Blessed Sacrament. He received his first Holy Communion from St. Charles Borromeo, and he longed to be a priest where he could confect the Sacrament at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The bishop talks of the Eucharistic heart which is pure of heart, all for God with no compromise with the world, the flesh and the devil; to be free of distraction. If more believed as the young Gonzaga believed, there'd be no wars and our churches would be full. Vatican 2 would be history. Aloysius disciplined himself with penances and total obedience, which was the humility of his Eucharistic heart. He was blessed to have the holy Doctor of the Church St. Robert Bellarmine as his director in the seminary. St. Aloysius is the ideal role model for purity and chastity who always exemplified humility? That was St. Aloysius Gonzaga
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight and a half-minute sermon given five years ago by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. His excellency shares how much love St. Paulinus had for the Sacred Heart and he truly lived Christ's words, selling all he had to follow Our Lord as a religious. He gave all his money to the poor. As Bishop of Nola, he shared all he could with the poor and became known as the most holy, generous prelate in theland. He knew Our Lord's words that the poor would always be with us, but he also lived the Beatitudes. As the collect today speaks, we are to despise all the things of the world and, like this holy bishop, seek to love the Sacred Heart all the more. That was the essence of St. Paulinus of Nola
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twenty-three-minute sermon given four years ago on the feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist by Father Kevin Vaillancourt, former pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Traditional Catholic parish in Spokane, Washington. Father reminds us how important this feast is since only three nativities are celebrated, Our Lord's on Christmas, Mary's on September 8 and St. John the Baptist today for he, like us was conceived in sin, but was born without Original Sin as the Gospel of Luke tells us for he lept in his mother Elizabeth's womb and was the first to be baptized in the womb, if you will, for God had great plans for this holy man. The Baptist is mentioned several times throughout the Mass for he has "an integral part in everything regarding the mysteries of our redemption" because his mission from God was to Prepare A Perfect People
We bring you today a seven-minute sermon courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons by His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan delivered eight years ago on the feast of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, who, amongst those born of woman, there is no greater saint. The bishop notes that we can best imitate St. John the Baptist by letting the light of truth shine through. This is vital in these times when the truth is muffled by the CONciLIAR church that has deceived so many by the darkness wrought by the prince of darkness today. John embodies the truth and the sacrifice of every martyr for all time for he was, in essence, the first of the Baptized martyrs. The Nativity of St. John the Baptist
In Chapter Forty-Seven of Book Four on the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden we see Our Lord's words to the bride about how we ought to beware of temptations from the devil, and his description of the devil as an enemy of the state. Christ admonishes not to be like a goat who is hard-hearted, nor the ram who butts his way into trouble, but to stand still and be still, to hold one's tongue and to quietly take shelter beneath the protective wings of God in the metaphor of a mother hen for His power and wisdom are represented as wings, His mercy as feathers, and the people as chickens who need to be protected from the feral foxes and beasts who roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Knock the devil out with a feather
Why Protestants and so many others deny the existence of Purgatory is beyond explanation considering they honor the dead and ask for prayers. If the departed is in Heaven, no prayers are necessary and if the departed is in hell, no prayers are possible. Therefore, it only makes sense that after death it would be useless to pray for any of the dearly departed if there was not some way those prayers could help. That is why both faith and reason point to a place of purification for in order to be admimitted into the presence of the perfect Beatific Vision one must be pure. Just as gold is purified by fire, so also is it necessary for souls to be purified in Purgatory. Makes perfect sense and it is left to the Church Militant to assist the Church Suffering through our prayers, and indulgences gained solely for the souls through Masses, devotions, penances, sacrifices and the ultimate unselfish sacrifice of the Act of Heroic Charity
. Jesus says if one has not charity, all else is as tinkling cymbals. There is no greater love than to pray souls into Heaven as we see in Step Eighteen,
The Church Suffering
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a seven-minute sermon given eight years ago by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio.
His excellency's words on St. William of Vercelli, who, like St. John the Baptist, was a penitential loner during the 12th century who then went forth to preach the Faith to the masses while also founding a monastery and working miracles. Like the Baptist he was fearless for William knew no fear with God on his side. He converted kings and scaled mountains to establish the Benedictine Monastery of Monte Virgine in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary near where the Latin writer Virgil wrote the Illiad
and the Odyssey
. The Bishop reminds us that we never know how divine Providence will work if we are open to God's holy will just as did St. William the Abbot
One way we counter the apostasy is through the most powerful weapon we all have: Mary's holy Rosary, also known as Mary's holy psalter of 150 Ave's
which was imparted to St. Dominic
from Heaven in order to fight heresies. That weapon is still as powerful today and the saddest fact is that so few use it. This is a reminder to all in the Church Militant to forget Bergoglio
's bent that the Rosary is old hat or "pelagian". Yes, resist him with all your might and rifle through those beads. Christ said we would be persecuted. Stand strong, "stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned"
, as St. Paul
counsels us in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14. Therefore, storm Heaven with Ave's
during this Great Apostasy - the "operation of error"
that God is allowing to those who "receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved"
, (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10). It's the best way to be rid of the likes of unFrancis and his ilk who, with his predecessors since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII
, have so offended Our Lady and her divine Son, not to mention all in the great Communion of Saints. God will not be mocked. His time is coming. Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph! One way we can help effect that is through the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade
. First of Fifteen Saturdays: The Annunciation
We begin the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade on June 25, the last Saturday of June, and closest to the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. This prayer campaign was first offered by the late devoted traditional Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. several years ago. Since then we feature it every year that will incorporate all fifteen mysteries of Mary's holy Psalter through the first Saturday of October just prior to Rosary Sunday in anticipation of the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Friday, October 7. This year, let us offer each Saturday in reparation for the offenses against Mary's Immaculate Heart. In respect to the 15 Saturdays, we focus on the First Joyful Mystery with The Annunciation
Week Four Click on the date below for that day's traditional liturgy.
It looks like this year the Church has saved the best for last in the month of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as we seque into the month of the Most Precious Blood with the signature feast of the Double of the First Class Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. This completes the run of Double of the
First Class Feasts, with commemorations of the Octave Day of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist and within the Octave of Sts. Peter and Paul.
In fact, there will not be another First Class Feast until the Solemnity of the Assumption. With this solemnity we pass from the month of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus to the Month dedicated to His Most Precious Blood leading to August which is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Church in Her wisdom shows the link through the Precious Blood that beat within the Sacred Heart in the womb of the Immaculate Heart. It is the same Precious Blood she would blot and clean when He might have hit His thumb with a nail or a wood sliver during His learning curve in becoming a carpenter under His loving foster-father St. Joseph. It is the same Precious Blood of tears that the Son of God shed at Gethsemane; the same Precious Blood Our Lady wiped from the stone floor of the scourging area; the same Precious Blood she wiped from His disfigured face on the way to Calvary; the same Precious Blood that dripped down upon her as she stood beneath the cross; and the same Precious Blood she washed away from her dead divine Son before He was laid in the sepulchre. The wine used at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (the true Traditional Latin Mass) when confected by the alter Christus becomes the same Precious Blood when the words are pronounced exactly as you see to the right as the Council of Trent and Pope St. Pius V set in stone for all time. One practice you can do each day is to bless your loved ones and ask the Blessed Mother to take their souls and all their cares and worries and place them on the altar to be washed in His Most Precious Blood at Holy Mass each day.
Speaking of Our Lady, the Mother of God bookmarks this week, so to speak, with Monday's feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help as we complete the Novena to Mary, and then on Saturday we celebrate the feast of the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth, wherein Our Lady pronounced the beautiful Magnificat recorded in St. Luke 1: 46-55 and often referred to as an "Ode to Theotokos." Save for these two latter feasts and the Sunday liturgy, the rest of the week is colored red as far as liturgical vestments are concerned. We remember the holy martyrs in this last week with a commemoration for the feast of Sts. John and Paul on Sunday (note: nothing to do with the false JP 'popes'), then the holy Bishop St. Irenaeus, followed by the Double of the Second Class Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, with the feast of the Commemoration of St. Paul the next day.
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost we are reminded that through baptism we die to sin and are crucified with Christ, confident in knowing that if we are faithful to Him He will always be faithful to us, and, as St. Mark's Gospel illustrates in the loaves and the fishes, there is no end to His mercy and promises. We will always have nourishment for the soul. If we die to sin we will always be nourished
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a ten-minute sermon given five years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father points out the theme for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost on the second account of the loaves and the fishes is about the abundance of God's treasures and how He bestows so much on us both spiritually and temporally, always providing for our needs. We should not worry since the birds of the air are taken care of and Christ emphasizes how much more important the soul is than the body. The graces are available to us if we but take advantage of assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and observe devotions, as well as silent prayer. It is truly amazing how many souls are lost considering God asks so little of them. Only on Judgment Day will all be revealed. If one is truthful they will say either they wished to profit by grace or they did not. It's that simple. Father explains in The Abundance of Grace is there for the taking
Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a sermon from seven years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on St. Irenaeus, but he focuses first on why we have the Vigil of Sts. Peter and Paul in reparation for the offenses against the Apostolic See, today so besmirched by the false 'popes' who claim the throne in this time of the Great Apostasy. St. Irenaeus refused to compromise to get along. Not so today sadly. Irenaeus was a disciple of St. John the beloved Apostle. He became a great missionary and able to learn several languages to communicate the Faith against heresy when already satan was attacking the Church just as he does today. St. Irenaeus has been able to refute the blasphemies way back then that have risen their ugly heads again today. We can go to school on the teachings of this holy Bishop and Martyr as Bishop Dolan explains in shares this magnificent foe of heresy St. Irenaeus
Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a short sermon from six years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on Sts. Peter and Paul, focusing on how these two giant saints of the Church are known for their penitence, of course, St. Peter, Christ's first appointed Vicar on earth denied Him three times, and St. Paul was converted, turning from persecuting Christians to becoming the great Apostle to the Gentiles. The Bishop notes that because we are in this time of the Great Apostasy, the Holy Father Peter's true successor - is taken away from us for a while as God so allows heretics to occupy the throne setting up a false church, but with the ordination of every true priest we are presented with sons that will carry on the true Faith and, in God's time, the Church will be resurrected. We take this opportunity to ask everyone to pray for priests, for they are satan's number one target just as in the earliest times of the Church the devil assailed Sts. Peter and Paul
The ultimate goal for every soul is eternal happiness. Too many think true happiness can be attained on this earth and in so thinking, fall short of ever seeing the Beatific Vision. What many consider superstitious is very much a reality. Heaven is the final destination and anything short of that ends in eternal damnation. Considering the alternative, why would anyone not do all on this earth in order to gain eternal life? It's a question for the ages that many have brushed aside as a fait accompli. Everyone is going to Heaven, well almost everyone. Wrong on both counts. Only those in the state of Sanctifying Grace will be admitted through the celestial portals, many, as we learned in the last step, will spend time in the purification fires of Purgatory. It is impossible to perfectly describe Heaven for as the scriptures affirm, the "eye has not seen, or ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love Him." It is left to us to do all in our power to see and hear what the Almighty has in store and all He has asked us to do is love and obey Him. Is that so much to ask? We can see the end result of our good fruits in Step Eighteen,
The Church Triumphant
Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a short sermon from six years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on Saint Paul, and the traditions the Church has followed in honoring this Apostle of the Gentiles who had been the enemy of Christ. The Bishop speaks of how the catechumens are taught and the safeguards against satan. Too often we are blinded like Paul and cannot see the obvious - the truths of our Faith and, like Paul we need to be knocked off our high horses so that we can realize the true purpose of our life's existence. As Paul himself said in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10, we need to recognize the lie and be on our guard constantly against the devil for the venomous serpent of hell searches out souls. But if we open our eyes to the truth we'll be able to avoid the poisonous viper. Bishop Dolan explains in his seven and a half minute sermon on Saint Paul the Apostle
Because of the theme, we combine Chapters Forty-Eight and Forty-Nine of Book Four on the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden where we equate the monarchial person to the head of the Church and to veer from his duties to the Faith and the souls entrusted will have dire consequences as Our Lord relates a tale of a king and how he should work to increase God's honor and love for souls, and about his sentencing, if he fails to do so. Then, St. Bridget is given a symbolic vision of the Church, the explanation of the metaphor of doors, which concern the moderation and attitude that a true pope ought to maintain regarding his own person and regarding the authentic hierarchy of Holy Mother Church, and especially about the attitude of humility. You shall see that when following God's will, His Church has the protection of the Holy Ghost; when veering from the Faith as has happend over the last fifty-plus years, those shepherds in wolves clothing shall be dealt with harshly as is just and right by the divine Judge.
The dangers of a door (papacy) off its hinges
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute sermon given last year on this First Class Feast by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father points out that every single drop of the Blood He shed was of infinite value.
Blood was shed from His circumcision to the Agony in the Garden to His brutal scourging and crowning of thorns and then His crucifixion as well as being pierced with a lance where poured forth blood and water, re-enacted at each Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in an unbloody manner with the wine confected into His Most Precious Blood. He is the Lamb of God and the sacrifices of the Old Testament, such as the paschal lambs, would have had no value had not they foreshadowed the Victim on the Cross and continued today in the Traditional Latin Mass at the transubstantiation where the Passover continues but in a truly salvific manner for He offered Himself for our sins as we understand fully by the shedding of The Most Precious Blood of Jesus
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute sermon given six years ago for the feast of the Visitation by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio.
His Excellency points out that the Visitation is the triumph of the Most Precious Blood which is flowing through the womb of Christ's holy mother Mary. St. John the Baptist, whose Octave Day was just yesterday, recognized Its salvific flow as he leapt in Elizabeth's womb. The Bishop emphasizes why and when this feast was established as well as treating the holy martyrs commemorated this day Sts. Processus & Martinian who received the Baptism of Blood. The meeting of Mary and Elizabeth is a coming together of love and total peace as His Excellency explains the words in the Gospel of St. Luke for this feast of
John Gregory provides an insightful inspiration on the Visitation where Our Lady dismissed all concerns for herself to minister to others, most notably her cousin St. Elizabeth who was further along in her pregnancy than Mary. Elizabeth recognized in Mary God's design for her younger cousin as did the babe in her womb - Saint John the Baptist who, though not conceived free of Original Sin was sanctified at the presence of the Babe in Mary's womb - the fetus of the God-Man. In this time when man's uncharity towards his fellow man is legend, we need to refocus on the intention for the Second Joyful Mystery - charity towards our neighbor out of our love for God. This charity is not reserved only for a select few, but all we meet. This charity is not about doing only humane things for others, but going well beyond that in doing all we can to do all in our power to see that our neighbor will save his eternal soul. This means charitably rebuking, correcting and admonishing if our neighbor has veered from the path God intended, and that means knowing our Faith so others will know it and convert. That's the greatest charity we can do for others because we do not want to see them condemned. That's what can happen as Jesus so clearly told us in St. Matthew 28: 20 and St. Mark 16: 16. John shares the meditation of The Second Joyful Mystery: The Visitation
For this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Visitation, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides an inspirational piece for that says it all about the charity our Blessed Mother extends to all in his piece. Magnficat
How perfect is it that the Second Saturday of the Fifteen Saturdays coincides with the feast of the Visitation for it is the Second Joyful Mystery we focus on today. This year, let us offer each Saturday in reparation for the offenses against Mary's Immaculate Heart. In respect to the 15 Saturdays then, we focus on the Second Joyful Mystery with the Second of Fifteen Saturdays: The Visitation

To fortify why the CONciLIAR church is the false church, see key Papal Decrees that preceded it in pre-Vatican Two times by true Popes who solidly condemned the V2 false 'popes' who have spit in Heaven's Face.

We encourage you to learn more about the Traditional Latin Mass - the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in these videos at this link because each time you worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, you gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when you stand before Him at your Particular Judgment. The more you have filled this chalice, the better will it go for your spiritual welfare in eternity, enhanced by your cooperation with grace. Know the Mass

When One Cannot physically assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
we provide additional prayers that can be supplemented with the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and the PROPER OF THE DAY to enable you to better prepare yourself at home. Of course, this never replaces actually being there, but it is much better than attending the Novus Ordo services. Therefore we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia in addition to the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and PROPER OF THE DAY. PRAYERS IN ABSENTIA
Prayer Before the Crucifix
Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst fix deep within my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds; having before my eyes the words which David in prophesy spoke concerning Thee, O Good Jesus: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."

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.
