“Take not your eyes from the light of this star if you would not be overwhelmed by the waves; if the storms of temptation arise, if you are thrown upon the rocks of affliction, look to the star, invoke Mary. Are you confounded at the enormity of your sins, are you ashamed at the defilement of your conscience, are you terrified on account of the dreadful judgment, so that you begin to be overpowered by sadness, or even to sink into the abyss of despair, then turn your thoughts to Mary. In dangers, in distress, in doubt, call on Mary. She will not be far from your mouth, or your heart; and that you may obtain her intercession, omit not to imitate her conduct. When you follow her, you will not go astray; when you invoke her, you will no longer be in doubt; when she supports you, you will not fall; when she leads you, you will surely come to eternal life, and will find by your own experience that she is justly called Maria – that is, Star of the Sea.” — St. Bernard.
Virgó Sacráta is a high-quality rosary maker of handmade rosaries and chaplets. Traditionally wire-wrapped by hand, we make our rosaries virtually unbreakable. The Rosary is a powerful form of meditation prayer on the life and virtues of Christ, and through the recitation of the Rosary, we ask to receive graces through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Jesus said: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). “Let people say the rosary every day. Our Lady stated that repeatedly in all her apparitions, as if to fortify us against these times of diabolical disorientation, so that we would not allow ourselves to be deceived by false doctrines…” (Sr. Lucia). Arm yourself, then, with the Rosary to Fight Heresy, Corruption, and Godlessness. When you receive a rosary, get it properly blessed according to traditional rite. A blessed rosary is a powerful channel of Grace, and has many indulgences attached to it. We hope that our rosaries will be used in your prayers often and bring forth much fruit.
Bring Light into your home: “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle” says Saint Francis of Assisi. Every Catholic household should be provided with one or more blessed candles. These candles should be of pure bees’ wax. Other kinds, such as paraffin wax and electric candles will not answer the purpose of candles prescribed by the Church. Beeswax Candles are unlike any other candles, burning beeswax puts a person in a special mood of prayer and reverence. The wax is offered as a sign of our repentance for our obstinacy and willfulness. The softness and malleability of the wax speak of our readiness to obey God. The flame of the candle shows the warmth of love to God. “Yet a little while, the light is among you. Walk whilst you have the light, that the darkness overtake you not. And he that walketh in darkness, knoweth not whither he goeth. Whilst you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light..” [From John 12:35-36]

Parallel Latin-English Psalter on-line with simultaneous streaming audio in Latin. It is a wonderful opportunity for the Catholic Clergy, Religious and Laity to learn the Divine Office in Latin! When you pray in Latin, you are connecting in a special way with the soul of Holy Mother Church, whose sacred language is Latin. Every Catholic, educated with truly Catholic education, should be able to understand Gospel in Latin. Moreover, “The use of the Latin language affords at once an imposing sign of unity and an effective safeguard against the corruption of true doctrine.” Pope Pius XII (Mediator Dei).
It is the music of the Roman Rite, performed in the Mass and the monastic Office. Roman Catholic Church officially considers it the music most suitable for worship. The sacred liturgy is fully supported to glorify God and sanctify the faithful through sacred music, which transcends time and space where our hearts and minds are lifted to encounter God and experience heaven on earth. We help Catholics to rediscover a profound sense of the Sacred through solemn liturgies, devotions, sacred music and art.
Today, “the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer.” – It was prophetically written by Pope St. Pius X for our times in “Our Apostolic Mandate” on August 15, 1910, who urged all Catholics to “Restore all things in Christ”.
