Virgo Sacrata (an ancient sacred title of the Blessed Virgin Mary) is a Christian mission-driven online resource and shop inspired from the beauty of Catholic faith, tradition, and arts. We make in-house designer rosaries and other hand-crafted religious articles of faith, in order to support our mission and charitable initiatives.
By promoting the Holy Rosary we help others find peace and serenity in their lives and use this marvelous prayer as a Church’s combat against all her enemies.
Virgo Sacrata aims to promote the tradition of the Catholic Faith, and the Traditional Latin Mass, reclaiming the true meaning of Sacred, restoration of the Sacred Music, Liturgy, and Arts. We also labor in view of Christian unity, so desired by Jesus Christ: unity in the truth.
“We were terrified beyond all else by the disastrous state of human society today. For who can fail to see that society is at the present time, more than in any past age, suffering from a terrible and deeprooted malady which, developing every day and eating into its inmost being, is dragging it to destruction? You understand, Venerable Brethren, what this disease is – apostasy from God, than which in truth nothing is more allied with ruin, according to the word of the Prophet: “For behold they that go far from Thee shall perish” (Ps. 1xxii., 17).”
It was written by Pope St. Pius X, in E SUPREMI, who urged all Catholics to look to Our Blessed Mother, and to “Restore all things in Christ” for the betterment of personal lives and of the world—a world plunged into war during his papacy.
This calling of Christians to the battle for order was the motto of the pontificate of Pope St. Pius X. That motto was Instaurare Omnia in Christo, “to restore all things in Christ”, taken from Saint Paul’s letter to the Ephesians 1:10: “In the dispensation of the fulness of times, to re-establish all things in Christ, that are in heaven and on earth, in him.”
“Truly we are passing through disastrous times, when we may well make our own the lamentation of the Prophet: “There is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land” (Hosea 4:1). Yet in the midst of this tide of evil, the Virgin Most Merciful rises before our eyes like a rainbow, as the arbiter of peace between God and man.”
He preached frequent reception of Holy Eucharist, a restoration of church music— Gregorian Chant, encouraged daily Bible reading and renewal and reform of institutions to teach Biblical matters, reorganized the Roman ecclesiastical offices, and codified Canon Law—all in attempts to draw the faithful to Christ and renew the Church in His presence.
St Pius X had a gift of prophecy about the future Church crisis such as today’s:
“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.” (Pope Pius X “Our Apostolic Mandate” August 15, 1910)
Today, “the Church is being threatened by a real disintegration which is taking place within: a crisis of obedience, a crisis of faith, a crisis of holiness. All these are threatening the Church today, at a time when civilization needs her presence in order to find its values.” (Cardinal Valerian Gracias of Bombay, India.)
“Unbelievers laugh at what they see, and the weak are unsettled; faith is doubtful, ignorance is poured over their souls, because the adulterators of the word in wickedness imitate the truth. Religious people keep silence, but every blaspheming tongue is let loose. Sacred things are profaned; those of the laity who are sound in faith avoid the places of worship, as schools of impiety, and raise their hands in solitude with groans and tears to the Lord in heaven.” (Saint Basil’s the Great.)
From the Scripture, we know that Catholic Church will endure until the end of time: “I am with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world.” (Matthew, 28:20). Nevertheless, the misconception that the Church will always have a large number of faithful Catholics, is not claimed in Sacred Scripture nor anywhere else. Quite to the contrary, Scripture tells us: “… yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?” (Luke 18:8).
“Whoever wishes to be saved must, above all, keep the Catholic faith. For unless a person keeps this faith whole and entire, he will undoubtedly be lost forever.” (Creed of St Athanasius.)
Tradition is the Rock on which the Church must be restored and the Social Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ re-established
What is meant by Tradition?
Tradition is the non-written word of God, which has been transmitted by word of mouth by Jesus Christ and by the apostles, and which has come down to us through the centuries by the means of the Church, without being altered. (From The Catechism of St. Pius X)
Where are the teachings of Tradition kept?
The teachings of Tradition are kept chiefly in the Councils’ decrees, the writings of the Holy Fathers, the Acts of the Holy See and the words and practices of the sacred Liturgy. (From The Catechism of St. Pius X)
What importance must we attach to Tradition?
We must attach to Tradition the same importance as the revealed word of God which Holy Scripture contains. (From The Catechism of St. Pius X)
The Relationship Between Tradition And Sacred Scripture
“Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, then, are bound closely together, and communicate one with the other. For both of them, flowing out from the same divine well-spring, come together in some fashion to form one thing, and move towards the same goal.” Each of them makes present and fruitful in the Church the mystery of Christ, who promised to remain with his own “always, to the close of the age”. (From the Catechism of the Catholic Church).
“Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk.” ~ Jeremiah 6:16
“Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle.” ~Thessalonians 2:2
“The day the Church abandons her universal tongue (Latin) is the day before she returns to the catacombs.” ~Pope Pius XII
“When a foulness invades the whole Church . . . We must return to the Church of the past.” ~St. Vincent of Lérins
