The Green Scapular

Posted by Site Webmaster on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, In : Our Lady's Promise 
Ten years after the manifestation of the Miraculous Medal to St. Catherine Laboure, the Blessed Virgin Mary, on September 8, 1840, the Feast of her Nativity, entrusted the Green Scapular of her Immaculate Heart to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu, a religious of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. Our Lady promised that this new Scapular would contribute to the conversion of souls, particularly those who have no faith, and would procure for them a happy death.

With a contrite and a pure and loving heart say:

MARY, Immaculate Mother of Jesus, offer, we beseech thee, to the Eternal Father, the Precious Blood of thy Divine Son, to prevent at least one mortal sin from being committed somewhere in the world this day (night). 

"If every night, before we went to sleep," says Father Faber, "we begged our dear Lady to offer up to God the Precious Blood of her Divine Son for grace to hinder one mortal sin somewhere in the world, during that night, an...

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, Thy Beloved Son and my Divine Redeemer, for the propagation and exaltation of my dear Mother the Holy Church, for the safety and prosperity of her visible Head, the Holy Roman Pontiff, for the cardinals, bishops and pastors of souls, and for all the ministers of the sanctuary.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without e...

The Campos Profession of Faith

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, March 22, 2013, In : Our Lady's Promise 

Until the end of 1981, when its Archbishop retired, the Diocese of Campos, Brazil was unique within the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. Its bishop, Msgr. Antonio de Castro Mayer, had refused to adopt the new rite of Mass promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1969. He insisted upon retaining the Traditional Latin Mass as the official liturgy of his diocese. The Bishop made this decision for two reasons: firstly, he claimed that the New Mass was not mandatory; secondly, he claimed that ...

Miracles Performed by St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland

Posted by Site Webmaster on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, In : Saint of the Day 

"He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life;
and I will raise him up in the last day."  
(John 6:55)

It has been said that St. Patrick (c. 389-c. 461) performed a thousand miracles. And why not? Many more (40,000) were prudently attributed to St. Vincent Ferrer, the Dominican missionary and "Angel of Judgment." 

Moreover, the author knows of no saint for whom there are claimed so many resurrection miracles during one apostolic lifetime as for St. P...

O, my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child, take care of my salvation, watch over me day and night, preserve me from the occasion of sin, obtain for me purity of soul and body!

Saint Padre Pio

Posted by Site Webmaster on Monday, March 18, 2013, In : Saint of the Day 

Padre Pio

Padre Pio (May, 1887 – September, 1968) was canonized on June 16, 2002, by the Roman Catholic Church. He is the only priest known to have received the full stigmata.

The final year of the dying, decaying 20th century has seen the beatification of Padre Pio, the holy monk whom God sent as a sign for our age. For, while everyone wants to make us believe in a new "charismatic" Church, strangely we do not find there any wonder-working saints like the ones ...

Traditional Latin Mass History

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, March 8, 2013, In : Our Lady's Promise 
 The first Mass was said by Christ at the Last Supper (Mt. 26:26-29, Mk. 14:22-24, Lk. 22:19-20, 1 Cor. 11:23-29). At that Mass, Christ told the Apostles - the predecessors of today's bishops - to repeat his actions in commemoration of his death. Since that time, the Church has faithfully followed the Lord's instructions, celebrating Mass even during the height of persecutions.
Under the direction of the Holy Spirit, the Roman Mass naturally developed, and the established customs became "ritu...

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, March 8, 2013, In : Our Lady's Promise
