Heavenly Protection from the Evils of the Day

A “Binding Prayer” Seeking Heavenly Protection from the Evils of the Day

Our times with many social, cultural and geophysical catastrophes are often described as “apocalyptic”. Perhaps so, but certainly they are diabolic. It would be well to pray for one another, our priests, our Chapel and school, often, daily, that the lot of us be protected from evil forces seeking our confusion and destruction. Follows is a short “binding prayer” seeking heavenly protection from the evils of the day: “Lord Jesus Christ, I pray that Thou wouldst cover us, our families, friends, communities, those who pray for us and their families and all our properties and possessions with Thy love and[…]

To Catholics Who Have Been Deprived of a Priest

To Catholics Who Have Been Deprived of a Priest

Editor’s Preface: During the French Revolution very many Bishops and priests were martyred for their faith as were many outstanding laymen also martyred. Church property was seized by the Masonic government. The revolutionary governing bodies were particularly determined to destroy every vestige of the Roman Catholic Church because France was hailed by Rome as the Church’s “eldest daughter” and the monarch had dedicated “our person, our state, our crown and our subjects” to the Blessed Virgin. That left the people without their priests and without a place to go to Mass and receive the sacraments. It was during that period[…]

Traditional Liturgical Calendar - Traditional Latin Mass

2022 Traditional Liturgical Calendar: Tridentine Latin Mass

Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament. ~St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina. The Traditional Latin Mass, “The Mass of All Ages” is making a great comeback among Catholics of all ages. Do not depart by one iota from traditional Catholic doctrine: Roman Catholicism is pure and unadulterated – as practiced from the time of Our Lord. In these turbulent times of sodomite and masonic invasion with the intent of destroying Christ’s Church from within, Catholics should[…]

Magnificat - The Canticle of Mary

Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum

The Magnificat, the canticle of the Incarnation, recalls to us each day that God has stripped Himself of His glory to clothe Himself in the livery of poor and suffering humanity. “He raised [Mary] above all others because she declared herself to be the lowest of all creatures. When He made for Himself a dwelling place on earth, it was not in the palaces of kings. He chose poor, humble parents and all that the world disdained in order to cast down its pomp. This was the proper character of divine power in the new alliance: to make its virtue[…]

Three Days Darkness

Three Days of Darkness

The most spectacular aspect of the Act of God will be the three days of darkness over the whole earth. The Three Days have been announced by Catholic prophets St. Caspar del Bufulo, Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora and Blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified.  The Church does not oblige us to believe in any particular prophecy as a matter of faith [de fide], but we are indeed obliged to believe that prophecies may be made even in our own times, for this is in the Gospel [Evangelium]: the Holy Ghost will speak to many in the Latter Days.[…]

Blessing of Candles - Beeswax Altar Candles

Blessing of Candles According to Traditional Roman Rite

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. Ask your local priest about blessing any candles you may have purchased from Virgo Sacrata, according to Traditional Roman Rite. The best time to bless your candles would be the 2nd of February when the Church celebrates the festival of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This day has been chosen by the Church for a very important ceremony,[…]

The Angelus Chant

The Angelus – Prayer for Peace and Tranquility

Like a heavenly messenger, the Angelus calls us to interrupt our daily, earthly routines, and turn to thoughts of God, of the Blessed Mother, and of eternity. The Angelus originated during the time of Crusades as a prayer for peace and tranquillity in the land of living and for their country. The devotion is traditionally sung in Roman Catholic churches, convents, and monasteries (and should be recited at home), three times daily at 6:00 a.m., Noon, and 6:00 p.m. Indulgenced by Pope Benedict XIII, Sept 14, 1724.

Persecution against Christ and His Church

The vain efforts of persecutors against Christ and His Church

Psalm 2: 1 Why have the gentiles raged, and the people devised vain things? 2 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, against the Lord, and against his Christ. 3 Let us break their bonds asunder: and let us cast away their yoke from us. 4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: and the Lord shall deride them. 5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his rage. 6 But I am appointed king by him over Sion his holy mountain, preaching his commandment. 7 The[…]

Feast of the Holy Family

Feast of the Holy Family in Traditional Liturgical Calendar (January 9, 2022)

The liturgical calendar for the Traditional Latin Mass observes the Feast of the Holy Family on the first Sunday after Epiphany (January 9, in 2022). When approving the feast of the Holy Family, Pope Leo XIII wrote: “When God in his mercy determined to accomplish the work of man’s renewal, which same had so many long ages awaited, he appointed and ordained this work on such wise that its very beginning might shew to the world the august spectacle of a Family which was known to be divinely constituted; that therein all men might behold a perfect model, as well[…]

Icon of the Laudation of the Mother of God

Akathist Hymn to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Ad maiorem Matris Gloriam – For the Greater Glory of the Mother The 6th century Marian devotion, attributed to St. Romanos the Melodist, is one of the greatest marvels of Greek religious poetry, with a richness of imagery that is the despair of any translator. The title “Akathistos” literally means “non-sitting,” because all remain standing while it is sung. When the enemies attacked Constantinople, the citizens would hold a cross procession on the city walls carrying the Christian sanctities and reading out the Akathist Hymn to the Mother of God. The Akathist hymn was complemented by a new introduction in[…]

IHS Holy Name of Jesus

Prayers and Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus in Latin & English

The name Jesus comes from the Greek Iesous which was derived from the Aramaic, Yeshu. It means “Yahweh is salvation.” Every Catholic should love and have great devotion to the Most Holy Name of JESUS, for this is the Name of our Divine Savior. More than that, this Name is our very Salvation: “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). The Holy Name of Jesus saves us from innumerable evils and delivers us especially from the power of the devil who[…]
