Traditional Catholicism, Michelangelo And Classical Coke Will Endure

Driving the other day, I noticed a truck that delivers Coca Cola.  It had a beautiful paint job in a deep red with the original traditional Coke bottle in the old art form from around the 1900′s.  In 1985, they had tried to be “with it”, “be modern”, “Classic Coke” was out.  But it did not appeal to the customers like the traditional or classical representation of a Coke bottle.                 Tradition has mass appeal.

Yesterday I gave a retreat to the Guadalupana’s, (women who prepare for the yearly celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12).  This is a picture of the white board.

photoMost of them are older and wanted to know about Euthanasia for old people.  That led to talking about “old people’s medical care costs, (a lot of money for geriatric medicine).  Because they are no longer paying taxes and are receiving government money when they get their social security checks, they are seen as a drain on the government and it is better if they die young (65).   You can see it started with unwanted babies being murdered.  Now it has come to no medical care for the unwanted old people who are the same “Baby Boomers” who voted in favor for murdering unwanted babies by abortion.  What goes around comes around, sooner or later.

photoPart of the retreat was simply showing beautiful Catholic Art, the beauty of the Latin Mass and the beauty of the vestments worn for the Latin Mass.  They deeply loved it.  You can also see on the white board the Sacrifice of the Latin Mass, not being about us (Ego), but being all about God.

Eucharist 3 “Deep in the soul of man is a love for the beautiful, the sacred and the eternal beyond.  All we need to do is show people traditional Catholic art, liturgy, vestments, and the soul of the other, will automatically speak interiorly for us as to which is of value, the “new” catholicism since Vatican II, or the traditional Catholicism of all ages.

Tourist from all over the world pay a lot of money and wait hours and hours to be able to visit the Vatican Museum.  Most are not Catholic, yet they know that there is something worthwhile in Catholic art.

Last Judgment_MICHELANGELO BuonarrotiProbably if the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo had not been so famous, the post Vatican II modernist would have painted over it.  Their reason for having done this would be that they deem traditional art, with Judgement and Hell, as old fashion and incorrectly depicts God as being “judgmental”.   They “fantasize” that God is just love without His divine Justice.

Pope Benedict XVI Baptism of the LordAt some point, after Vatican II, someone moved the altar in the Sistine Chapel out from the wall to accommodate “modern liturgy”.  Pope Benedict XVI moved it back closer the the wall and offered the Sacrifice of the Mass Ad Orientam, (toward God).  Fads, religious and worldly, come and go.  But God is the same yesterday, tomorrow and forever.  “Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today; and the same for ever”.  Hebrews 13: 8.

Padre-Pio-MatrimonioMost Catholics, and other worldly people, like pop, rock, hip-hop, rap, jazz, metallic and satanic music.  Few Catholics, and others, like Gregorian Chant or Classical Music.  And the reason for this is that they were never blessed to be exposed or educated in the traditional fine arts.

IMG_3199_1The Hindu’s who believe that the “grass eating cow” is sacred.  They know no better.  That is their false concept of the divine.  And so it is with most Catholics who have not been exposed to the sacred, the divine and the sublime.

FI 8We traditional Catholics need to lovingly open their eyes to what is true, sacred and beyond.  Their God made souls will tell the rest for us.  We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and know what God likes and what our souls can enjoy and find the Divine in.

Prayer For Mary’s Intercession To God And The Memorare By St. Bernard Of Clairvaux

St. Bernard of Clairvaux composed this beautiful prayer to Our Blessed Mother Mary.

what-is-sweeter-than-putting-ones-whole-heart-into-the-hands-of-the-blessed-virgin-mary-copyRemember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.

When we pray this prayer, (with great faith), we gain the confidence we need in the power of Mary’s intercession for us.  This is especially true when we are desperate and need God’s help.  In this prayer, we are reminded that “NEVER” was it know that any one who fled to her, implored her help, or sought her intercession was “NOT HELPED“.   If we seek her help, she will help us.

holynamemarySometime our prayers are not answered.  Or sometime they take a long long time to be answered.  Here are some reasons that God does not answer or may take time to answer our prayers even with Mary’s powerful intercession to Him for our needs.

1) What we pray for may not be God’s will.

2) What we pray for may not be good for our or other’s eternal soul.

3) If we received what we prayed for instantly, we would not appreciate what God has done for us.

4) When we receive what we pray for instantaneously, we would tend to look at God as our Sugar Daddy who does what we tell Him to do.

5) Something better may be in God’s plan than what we are praying for.

6) To teach us patience as we learn to wait on God’s answer or blessing.

7) To help us grow in faith, since when we do not get what we wanted right, when we asked for it, we needed to keep on having faith that eventually we will be helped.

The Exorcism Rite Of Pope Leo XIII In Latin From Roman Ritual

By Pope Leo XIII, from the Roman Ritual, Rite of Exorcism

I016_StMichaelPrinceps gloriosissime caelestis militiae, sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio et colluctatione, quae nobis adversus principes et potestates, adversus mundi rectores tenebrarum harum, contra spiritualia nequitiae, in caelestibus. Veni in auxilium hominum, quos Deus creavit inexterminabiles, et ad imaginem similitudinis suae fecit, et a tyrannide diaboli emit pretio magno. Proeliare hodie cum beatorum Angelorum exercitu proelia Domini, sicut pugnasti contra ducem superbiae luciferum, et angelos eius apostaticos: et non valuerunt, neque locus inventus est eorum amplius in caelo. Sed proiectus est draco ille magnus, serpens antiquus, qui vocatur diabolus et satanas, qui seducit universum orbem; et proiectus est in terram, et angeli eius cum illo missi sunt.

En antiquus inimicus et homicida vehementer erectus est. Transfiguratus in angelum lucis, cum tota malignorum spirituum caterva late circuit et invadit terram, ut in ea deleat nomen Dei et Christi eius, animasque ad aeternae gloriae coronam destinatas furetur, mactet ac perdat in sempiternum interitum. Virus nequitiae suae, tamquam flumen immundissimum, draco maleficus transfundit in homines depravatos mente et corruptos corde; spiritum mendacii, impietatis et blasphemiae; halitumque mortiferum luxuriae, vitiorum omnium et iniquitatum.

Ecclesiam, Agni immaculati sponsam, vaferrimi hostes repleverunt amaritudinibus, inebriarunt absinthio; ad omnia desiderabilia eius impias miserunt manus. Ubi sedes beatissimi Petri et Cathedra veritatis ad lucem gentium constituta est, ibi thronum posuerunt abominationis et impietatis suae; ut percusso Pastore, et gregem disperdere valeant.

Adesto itaque, Dux invictissime, populo Dei contra irrumpentes spirituales nequitias, et fac victoriam. Te custodem et patronum sancta veneratur Ecclesia; te gloriatur defensore adversus terrestrium et infernorum nefarias potestates; tibi tradidit Dominus animas redemptorum in superna felicitate locandas. Deprecare Deum pacis, ut conterat satanam sub pedibus nostris, ne ultra valeat captivos tenere homines, et Ecclesiae nocere. Offer nostras preces in conspectu Altissimi, ut cito anticipent nos misericordiae Domini, et apprehendas draconem, serpentem antiquum, qui est diabolus et satanas, ac ligatum mittas in abyssum, ut non seducat amplius gentes. Hinc tuo confisi praesidio ac tutela, sacri ministerii nostri auctoritate [si fuerit laicus, vel clericus qui ordinem exorcistatus nondum suscepit, dicat: sacra sanctae Matris Ecclesiae auctoritate], ad infestationes diabolicae fraudis repellendas in nomine Iesu Christi Dei et Domini nostri fidentes et securi aggredimur.

V. Ecce Crucem Domini, fugite partes adversae.

R. Vicit Leo de tribu Iuda, radix David.

V. Fiat misericordia tua, Domine, super nos.

R. Quemadmodum speravimus in te.

V. Domine, exaudi orationem meam.

R. Et clamor meus ad te veniat.

Oremus
Deus, et Pater Domini nostri Iesu Christi, invocamus nomen sanctum tuum, et clementiam tuam supplices exposcimus ut, per intercessionem immaculatae semper Virginis Dei Genetricis Mariae, beati Michaelis Archangeli, beati Ioseph eiusdem beatae Virginis Sponsi, beatorum Apostolorum Petri et Pauli et omnium Sanctorum, adversus satanam, omnesque alios immundos spiritus, qui ad nocendum humano generi animasque perdendas pervagantur in mundo, nobis auxilium praestare digneris. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Why Traditional Catholics Pray The Leonine Prayers After Low Latin Mass

On Oct. 13, 1884, when Pope Leo XIII was doing his thanksgiving (at another Mass) after offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he heard two voices, one loving and benevolent, (God) and another, a horrible voice, (satan).  This is what happened.

1280282838_leo xiii“The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasting to Our Lord: “I can destroy your Church” 

The gentle voice of Our Lord: “You can? Then go ahead and do so.” 

Satan: “To do so, I need more time and more power.” 

Our Lord: “How much time? How much power? 

Satan: “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.” 

Our Lord: “You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will.”

devilFr. Domenico Pechenino describes it this way:

I do not remember the exact year. One morning the great Pope Leo XIII had celebrated a Mass and, as usual, was attending a Mass of thanksgiving. Suddenly, we saw him raise his head and stare at something above the celebrant’s head. He was staring motionlessly, without batting an eye. His expression was one of horror and awe; the colour and look on his face changing rapidly. Something unusual and grave was happening in him.

“Finally, as though coming to his senses, he lightly but firmly tapped his hand and rose to his feet. He headed for his private office. His retinue followed anxiously and solicitously, whispering: ‘Holy Father, are you not feeling well? Do you need anything?’ He answered: ‘Nothing, nothing.’ About half an hour later, he called for the Secretary of the Congregation of Rites and, handing him a sheet of paper, requested that it be printed and sent to all the ordinaries around the world. What was that paper? It was the prayer that we recite with the people at the end of every Mass. It is the plea to Mary and the passionate request to the Prince of the heavenly host, (St. Michael: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle) beseeching God to send Satan back to hell.”
(Fr. Domenico Pechenino, quoted in the 1955 Roman journal Ephemerides Liturgicae V. LXIX, pp 54–60) 

Michael_detail from the Last Judgment_WEYDEN, Rogier van derIn 1946, Cardinal Nasalli Rocca wrote this: “the sentence ‘The evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls’ has a historical explanation that was many times repeated by his private secretary, Monsignor Rinaldo Angeli. Leo XIII truly saw, in a vision, demonic spirits who were congregating on the Eternal City (Rome). The prayer that he asked all the Church to recite was the fruit of that experience. He would recite that prayer with strong, powerful voice: we heard it many a time in the Vatican Basilica. Leo XIII also personally wrote an exorcism that is included in the Roman Ritual. He recommended that bishops and priests read these exorcisms often in their dioceses and parishes. He himself would recite them often throughout the day.”

This divine and demonic vision, that Pope Leo XIII had, is similar to what happened to Job.

“Now on a certain day when the sons of God came to stand before the Lord, Satan also was present among them.  And the Lord said to him: Whence comest thou? And he answered and said: I have gone round about the earth, and walked through it.  And the Lord said to him: Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a simple and upright man, and fearing God, and avoiding evil?  And Satan answering, said: Doth Job fear God in vain? Hast not thou made a fence for him, and his house, and all his substance round about, blessed the works of his hands, and his possession hath increased on the earth?  But stretch forth thy hand a little, and touch all that he hath, and see if he blesseth thee not to thy face.  Then the Lord said to Satan: Behold, all that he hath is in thy hand: only put not forth thy hand upon his person. And Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.”  Job 1: 6-12.

Job_SEGHERS, GerardThe Douay Rheims Version has this comment on verse 6: “The sons of God: The angels.– Ibid. Satan also, etc. This passage represents to us in a figure, accommodated to the ways and understandings of men, 1. The restless endeavours of Satan against the servants of God; 2. That he can do nothing without God’s permission; 3. That God doth not permit him to tempt them above their strength: but assists them by his divine grace in such manner, that the vain efforts of the enemy only serve to illustrate their virtue and increase their merit.”

“And it came to pass, when on a certain day the sons of God came, and stood before the Lord, and Satan came among them, and stood in his sight,  That the Lord said to Satan: Whence comest thou? And he answered and said: I have gone round about the earth, and walked through it.  And the Lord said to Satan: Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a man simple, and upright, and fearing God, and avoiding evil, and still keeping his innocence? But thou hast moved me against him, that I should afflict him without cause.  And Satan answered, and said: Skin for skin, and all that a man hath he will give for his life:  But put forth thy hand, and touch his bone and his flesh, and then thou shalt see that he will bless thee to thy face.  And the Lord said to Satan: Behold be is in thy hand, but yet save his life. So Satan went forth from the presence Of the Lord, and struck Job with a very grievous ulcer, from the sole of the foot even to the top of his head:”  Job 2: 1-8

Pope Leo XIII saw what the devil was being allowed to do by God, so he composed the St. Michael prayer and asked bishops all over the world to pray it after all Holy Masses.  And it is for this reason that we pray the Leonine Prayers after all the Low Latin Masses.

fatima_our_ladyIt has been over 75 – 100 years.  Things seem to only have gotten worse in the Church and outside the Church.  But this vision, and what happened to Job, clearly shows that God allows this to triumph over satan.  What is needed are more Jobs.  People, inside the Catholic Church, who are willing to suffer and be persecuted by the Church’s authorities and  those outside the Church.   Those who are willing to resist the destruction of the 2000 year old Catholic traditions and the perversion of Biblical truth.

It was so difficult for Job.  It will be difficult for us.  But we have the knowledge, before hand, who always wins, God.  In the end, the devil and the other evil spirits will be forever consigned to hell forever.  They will not be to do any harm anymore.

Vocogno 1The modernist, progressive Catholics are getting old and will die.  They will be judged before Almighty God.  Here they have their “kingdoms” that ostracize, persecute and silence the good holy Catholics (especially traditional priests).  After death they will be surprised to see that there is only the One Kingdom of Jesus Christ which will eternally reign.

God allowed satan to try to destroy the Church. He is ultimately in charge.  This vision also converted Pope Leo XIII who before was a progressive.  God will continue to bring good out of evil.

Let us continue to pray the Leonine Prayers and suffer like Job.  God is with us, Mary is covering us with her mantle.  We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics.  We know that Jesus’ and Mary’s Hearts triumph in the end.

God Will Never Abandon The Traditional Catholic Church

In the Exorcism Prayer by Pope Leo XIII there is plenty about satan and all the evil spirits.  But, the reason he had this prayer put together was so that they would be crushed and the Holy Catholic Church would thrive.

leoneWe see this is the part where the prayer reminds the devil and us, about what Jesus said in Matthew 16:16. He who has built His Church on the form rock and declared that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her.”  Because He will dwell with Her all days, even to the end of the world.” Matthew 28:20.

In this prayer we are also reminded of Mary’s powerful role to command the devil and how she crushes his proud head from the first moment of her Immaculate Conception.

Besides praying for all mankind, this prayer especially prays that the devil will stop harming the church and hindering her liberty.   The devil is reminded that the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church was acquired by Christ at the price of HIs Blood.

H092_Devil-2The exorcism prayer ends with two prayers for the Church.  “That Thy Church may serve Thee in peace and liberty” and “that Thou may crush down all enemies of Thy Church.”

In the prayers at the end of the Latin Mass, again we pray for “the liberty and exaltation of our Holy Mother the Church.”

All of these prayers were promulgated by Pope Leo XIII because he saw the masons and other evil servants of the devil trying to destroy the Catholic Church, acquired by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Here is a picture of some of the masons from Irapuato Guanajuato who were behind the attempt to destroy the Catholic Church in Mexico 1926-33.  People still believe it is only a conspiracy theory.  This picture is no illusion, these are real masonic men.  MasonesThese prayers are now only rarely prayed by those who do not go to the Latin Mass.  And for this reason and because of the lack of saying the Latin Mass, we see the self destruction of the Holy Catholic Church.

Cyprian imposing Justina_14 century manuscriptOf course She will never be destroyed, but She sure is being bombarded by the devil and his friends, inside and outside the Church.

But the remnant, you and I, still pray and stay faithful.  And we have the joy of knowing that, no matter what ever is happening, God will never ever abandon us.  Jesus will be with us until the consummation of the world and time.  For this reason, we are so blessed to be traditional Catholics.

Traditional Catholics Have The Right Weapons To Fight “Rulers Of The World Of Darkness”

All of us traditional Catholics believe in the devil, evil spirits and hell.  They became rebellious against God and are still rebelling and getting other humans to rebel against God and His Catholic Church right now.  We traditional Catholics need to address this problem and help others rediscover the great weapons God has left to us as Catholics to deal with this supernatural battle.

Satan Before the Lord_GIAQUINTO, CorradoFor this reason, I pray the Exorcism Prayer everyday, published by Pope Leo XIII called; “Prayer Against Satan and The Rebellious Angels”.  In this exorcism prayer, the Catholic Church clearly shows us what we are up against every day of our lives.

St. Paul says it so well; For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” Ephesians 6:12.

The Exorcism prayer names and addresses the demons we are fighting against:

1) satanic powers,

2) unclean spirits,

3) infernal invaders,

4) wicked legions,

5) assemblies

6) sects.

This clearly shows us that we are dealing with more than just the devil.  He, and all these other evil demons, are whom are out to destroy us and Jesus’ Catholic Church.  And, along with them, are their servants, like the freemasons and other modernist, inside and outside the Holy Church.

Masoner_a_IlluminatiPope Leo XIII, in Humanum Genus, (Encyclical Letter On Freemasonry, April 20, 1884) stated:  “They are planning the destruction of Holy Church publicly and openly… There is no denying that in this foolish and criminal plan, it is easy to understand the implacable hatred and passion for revenge which animated satan toward Jesus Christ

But the good news is that God has already given us the right weapons to fight with.  First and foremost is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin.  (Remember the devil and his co-workers hate Latin.)  Then we have all the traditional sacraments, (from before 1969), that have many exorcisms as part of the rites.

st-michael3-destroy-freemasonry-linkThe traditional Holy Water, blessed and combined with exorcized salt, is another powerful weapon against the devil.  (The new holy water blessing is very very poor.)  We have the exorcised St. Benedict’s medal.  The scapular.

All the traditional blessing are way way longer and ancient.  They have the power to help consecrate and bless sacramentals to be used in this battle against satan and the other evil spirits.   The Novus Ordo blessings help, but are not nearly as powerful.

098_BaptismJust recently the Anglican Church of England has even gone so far as to remove satan and sin from their baptismal rite.

“In the current version, in use since 1998, vicars ask parents and godparents if they “reject the devil and all rebellion against God” and if they “repent of the sins that separate us from God and neighbour”.

However, the new text asks them instead to “reject evil, and all its many forms, and all its empty promises”, with no explicit mention of the devil or sin.” The Telegraph.

The process for these heretics of watering down “the waters of baptism” began in 1980.  We began in May 15, 1969 and used in the 1970 Missal.

warninglabel-vatican-iiAlmost every person sees that we are in trouble; wars, drugs, crime and the family break up.  And yet I have yet to hear the pope, bishops, religious or priests proclaiming that the devil and rebellion in and outside the Church is the cause of these problems.  They just say we need peace, we need justice.  That is what the Church has been saying ever since Vatican II and nothing has changed or gotten better.  In fact they have only become worse and are now extremely dangerous.

We traditional Catholics know what is needed;

1) A return to the power traditional sacraments and blessing.

2) A return to Biblical morals.

3) Prophets.

4) Repentance for all our sins.

5) Latin Exorcisms.

6) Holy popes, bishops, religious, priests and laity.

7) Great devotion to Mary, the angels and saints.

8) Daily recitation of the Holy Rosary.

9) Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

10) Quiet contemplative prayer.

11) More sincere love between all of us.

12) Holy families where dads are holy leaders, mothers stay home and have time for their children, and the children are kept from loosing their innocence and souls at public (and most catholic) schools.

mother-mary-3We have the weapons, we have the knowledge and we have the faith.  Let us go on serving Jesus and doing what each one of us is called to do to help save souls, the Church and the world from destruction.  We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics.

Pope Leo XIII Exorcism Prayer Against Satan And Rebellious Angels

Here is the very powerful Exorcism Prayer that we should pray and study to understand the complexity of satan and the other demons that we are up against everyday.  Michael_Rome, S. Maria della Consolazione_1635

Exorcism Against Satan and the Rebellious Angels

Published by Order of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII

The Holy Father exhorts priests to say this prayer as often as possible, as a simple exorcism to curb the power of the devil and prevent him from doing harm. The faithful also may say it in their own name, for the same purpose, as any approved prayer. Its use is recommended whenever action of the devil is suspected, causing malice in men, violent temptations and even storms and various calamities. It could be used as a solemn exorcism (an official and public ceremony, in Latin), to expel the devil. It would then be said by a priest, in the name of the Church and only with a Bishop’s permission.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

+ In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. 

Most glorious Prince of the Celestial Host, Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the conflict which we have to sustain against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places (Eph. 6.12). Come to the rescue of men whom God has created to His image and likeness, and whom He has redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. It is thou whom Holy Church venerates as her guardian and protector; thou whom the Lord has charged to conduct redeemed souls into Heaven. Pray, therefore, the God of Peace to subdue Satan beneath our feet, that he may no longer retain men captive nor do injury to the Church. Present our prayers to the most High, that without delay they may draw His mercy down upon us. Seize the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit, that he may no more seduce the nations (Apoc. 20.2-3). 

Exorcism

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, strengthened by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Blessed Michael the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints, [and powerful in the holy authority of our ministry]*, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil. 

*Lay people omit this text

Psalm 67 

Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.

As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish away: as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord! Flee, bands of enemies.
R. The Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Offspring of David has conquered.
V. May Thy mercy descend upon us.
R. As great as our hope in Thee. 

(The crosses (+) below indicate a blessing to be given if a priest recites the Exorcism; if a lay person recites it, they indicate the Sign of the Cross to be made by that person.)

We drive you from us, whoever you may be, unclean spirits, Satanic powers, infernal invaders, wicked legions, assemblies, and sects. In the name and by the virtue of Our Lord Jesus Christ +. May you be snatched away and driven from the Church of God and from the souls redeemed by the Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb +.

Cease by your audacity, cunning serpent, to deceive the human race, to persecute the Church, to torment God’s elect, and to sift them as wheat +. This is the command made to you by the Most High God +, with Whom in your haughty insolence you still pretend to be equal +. The God Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth (I Tim. 2.4). God the Father commands you +. God the Son commands you +. God the Holy Ghost commands you +. Christ, the Eternal Word of God made Flesh, commands you +. He Who to save our race, outdone through your malice, humbled Himself, becoming obedient unto death (Phil. 2.8). He Who has built His Church on the firm rock and declared that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her, because He dwells with Her all days, even to the consummation of the world (Matt. 28.20). The hidden virtue of the Cross requires it of you, as does the power of the mysteries of the Christian Faith +. The glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you +. She who by Her humility and from the first moment of Her Immaculate Conception crushed your proud head. The faith of the holy Apostles Peter and Paul and of the other Apostles commands you +. The blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints command you +

Thus, cursed dragon, and you, wicked legions, we adjure you by the living God +, by the true God +, by the holy God +, by the God Who so loved the world, as to give up His only-begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him may not perish but may have life everlasting (St. John 3.16). Cease deceiving human creatures and pouring out to them the poison of eternal perdition. Cease harming the Church and hindering her liberty. Retreat, Satan, inventor and master of all deceit, enemy of man’s salvation. Cede the place to Christ in Whom you have found none of your works. Cede the place to the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church acquired by Christ at the price of His Blood. Stoop beneath the all-powerful Hand of God. Tremble and flee at the evocation of the Holy and terrible name of Jesus; this Name which causes hell to tremble; this Name to which the Virtues, Powers and Dominations of Heaven are humbly submissive; this Name which the Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly, repeating: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of Hosts. 

V. O Lord hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
V. May the Lord be with thee.
R. And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

God of Heaven, God of earth, God of Angels, God of Archangels, God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets, God of Apostles, God of Martyrs, God of Confessors, God of Virgins, God who has power to give life after death and rest after work, because there is no other God than Thee and there can be no other, for Thou art the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, of Whose reign there shall be no end. We humbly prostrate ourselves before Thy glorious Majesty and we supplicate Thee to deliver us from all the tyranny of the infernal spirits, from their snares, their lies, and their furious wickedness. Deign, O Lord, to protect us by Thy power and to preserve us safe and sound. We beseech Thee through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

V.  From the snares of the devil,
R.  Deliver us, O Lord. 

V.  That Thy Church may serve Thee in peace and liberty,
R.  We beseech Thee to hear us. 

V.  That Thou would crush down all enemies of Thy Church,
R.  We beseech Thee to hear us. 

(Holy water is sprinkled in the place where we may be.) 

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Divine Power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

July 22, 1456, Another Miraculous Muslim Defeat At Belgrade Hungary

The christian Byzantine Capital of Constantinople fell to the muslims in 1453.  From there, Sultan Mehmed II pushed forward toward central Europe.  On July 4th, the muslim siege of Belgrade Hungary began.  A noble man, John Hunyadi began organizing resistance to the muslim invasion.

800px-Budapest_heroes_Hunyadi_Janos796px-Hunyadi_emléktábla_BelgrádSt. John Capistrano, a Franciscan Friar, at the age of 70, also preached a crusade to come to the defense of Catholic Europe.  Mostly peasants heeded his call and joined him in the defense of Belgrade.

754px-Battle_of_NandorfehervarAfter some days of battle, the peasant crusaders left the Belgrade bastion to fight hand to hand with the muslims.  St. John decided to follow them into battle.  He is famous for his saying; “The Lord who made the beginning, will take care of the finish”.  Chroniclers wrote that the muslims were “paralyzed by some inexplicable fear”

On July 22, 1456, the muslims retreated and Belgrade and Europe were saved.  St. John Capistrano is also called “The Soldier Saint”.

Battle-of-BelgradeTo celebrate the victory at Belgrade, Pope Collixtus III asked for Catholic churches all over Europe to ring their bells at 12 noon.  To this very day, this custom is still practiced in many parts of the world.

It was not until 75 years later did the muslims attacked again.  This time, at the Battle of Mohacs in 1526, the muslims conquered Hungary.  Three years later, 1529, they began their siege of Vienna.

It was not until 1683, at the Battle of Vienna, by the prayers of Catholics, by calling out the name of Mary and the courageous effort of King Jan III Sobieski, were the muslims finally defeated and Europe saved.

Atak_husariiBut the final defeat of the muslims in Europe did not take place until August 5th, 1716.  Prince Eugene Savoy of Austria began attacking the muslims near Belgrade Hungary.   On August 5th, he successfully won the muslim’s 150,000 men army.  When the muslim Grand Vizier, Damat Ali was defeated, the Sultan in Constantinople ordered his execution.

This battle is called the Battle of Peterwardin Vojvodina at Belgrade Serbia.  It took me a lot of research to finally find the details of this last, decisive defeat of the muslims in Europe.

BVM-Jn-Bap-XTIn memory of this victory, a church called “St. Mary of the Snows” was constructed in Belgrade.  In this church there are both Catholic and Orthodox altars.  The reason for its name, is that it was on August 5th in Rome that Our Lady allowed snow to fall on the hill where she wanted Pope Liberius (352 – 366) to build a church in her honor.  That Basilica is called, Our Lady of the Snow or best known as Mary Majors (Santa Maria Maggiore).  Prince Eugene of Savoy knew that Our Lady had come to their help against the muslims again.

Before, Catholics used to know all the feast days and how to pray for victory on these days.  Now most Catholics do not even know the feast days or how to ask special help from Jesus, or Mary or the saints on those special days.

page42_blog_entry93_1God is working in Hungary again.  After they were terribly massacred and oppressed under communism, they finally were given freedom again.  In just 2011, July 22 (the anniversary of the Victory of Belgrade) was made a national memorial day.

Their new constitution of 2012 (National Credo) protects humans from the moment of conception till natural death.  It also protects marriage between a man and a woman.  They reclaimed their christian heritage and history.  King St. Stephen was again proclaimed the patron of Hungary.

Stephen of Hungary_illum“We are proud, that our King St. Stephen established the Hungarian state on firm foundations a thousand years ago and our country a part of Christian Europe. . . .

We recognize the role of Christianity in preserving our nationhood.

We are proud of our forefathers who struggled for survival, freedom, and independence of our country. . . .

We are proud that our people have battled for centuries to protect Europe and have, with their talent and diligence, enriched her common values. . . .

We undertake to preserve and nurture our legacy, the Hungarian culture, our unique language, the man-made and natural treasures of the Carpathian-basin. . . .

We profess that the most important frameworks for our coexistence are the family and the nation. . . .

We respect the achievements of our historic constitution and the Holy Crown, which embodies the continuity of the Hungarian constitutional state and the unity of the nation.”

l_809a0e84f39e48f0bf203f6d4f32954cWe are not in this world alone.  God, Mary, the angels and saints are right here with us.  Let us often turn to them in our needs, especially our need for the restoration of the Holy Roman Catholic Faith and Her Sacred Sacraments.

Traditional Catholic’s Pure Hearts

Traditional Family and Property Student Action has listed these 24 quotes about purity.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
– Matthew 5:8

 Saint John Bosco

“Holy Purity, the queen of virtues, the angelic virtue, is a jewel so precious that those who possess it become like the angels of God in heaven, even though clothed in mortal flesh.”
– Saint John Bosco

“We must be pure. I do not speak merely of the purity of the senses. We must observe great purity in our will, in our intentions, in all our actions.”
– Saint Peter Julian Eymard

“Those whose hearts are pure are the temples of the Holy Spirit.”
– Saint Lucy

“We must practice modesty, not only in our looks, but also in our whole deportment, and particularly in our dress, our walk, our conversation, and all similar actions.”
– Saint Alphonsus Liguori

“In the realm of evil thoughts none induces to sin as much as do thoughts that concern the pleasure of the flesh.”
– Saint Thomas Aquinas

“In temptations against chastity, the spiritual masters advise us, not so much to contend with the bad thought, as to turn the mind to some spiritual, or, at least, indifferent object. It is useful to combat other bad thoughts face to face, but not thoughts of impurity.”
– Saint Alphonsus Liguori

“Lust indulged became habit, and habit unresisted became necessity.”
– Saint Augustine

“More souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
– Our Lady of Fatima

“Filthy talk makes us feel comfortable with filthy action. But the one who knows how to control the tongue is prepared to resist the attacks of lust.”
– Saint Clement of Alexandria

“The man of impure speech is a person whose lips are but an opening and a supply pipe which hell uses to vomit its impurities upon the earth.”
– Saint John Vianney

“Either we must speak as we dress, or dress as we speak. Why do we profess one thing and display another? The tongue talks of chastity, but the whole body reveals impurity.”
– Saint Jerome

“A pure soul is like a fine pearl. As long as it is hidden in the shell, at the bottom of the sea, no one thinks of admiring it. But if you bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes. Thus the pure soul, which is hidden from the eyes of the world, will one day shine before the Angels in the sunshine of eternity.”
– Saint John Vianney

“The pure soul is a beautiful rose, and the Three Divine Persons descend from Heaven to inhale its fragrance.”
– Saint John Vianney

“Chastity is the lily of virtues, and makes men almost equal to Angels. Everything is beautiful in accordance with its purity. Now the purity of man is chastity, which is called honesty, and the observance of it, honor and also integrity; and its contrary is called corruption; in short, it has this peculiar excellence above the other virtues, that it preserves both soul and body fair and unspotted.”

– Saint Francis de Sales

“Humility is the safeguard of chastity. In the matter of purity, there is no greater danger than not fearing the danger. For my part, when I find a man secure of himself and without fear, I give him up for lost.  I am less alarmed for one who is tempted and who resists by avoiding the occasions, than for one who is not tempted and is not careful to avoid occasions. When a person puts himself in an occasion, saying, I shall not fall, it is an almost infallible sign that he will fall, and with great injury to his soul.”
– Saint Philip Neri

“Your good resolutions must not make you proud, but humble and diffident; you carry a large sum of gold about you, take care not to meet any highwaymen. In this life there is nothing certain: we are in a continual warfare, and, therefore, ought to be on our guard day and night. We sail in a tempestuous sea that threatens us on every side, and in a poor leaky vessel: the devil, who aims at nothing less than our destruction, never ceases to increase the storm, to overwhelm us thereby, if he can; hence it was that the Apostle gave this precaution, even to the virtuous: ‘Let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall’ (1 Cor. x.12).”
– Saint Jerome, Epistle to Saint Eustochium

“The state of grace is nothing other than purity, and it gives heaven to those who clothe themselves in it. Holiness, therefore, is simply the state of grace purified, illuminated, beautified by the most perfect purity, exempt not only from mortal sin but also from the smallest faults; purity will make saints of you! Everything lies in this!”
– Saint Peter Julian Eymard

“Chastity, or cleanness of heart, holds a glorious and distinguished place among the virtues, because she, alone, enables man to see God; hence Truth itself said, ‘Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God.’”

– Saint Augustine

“There is no remedy so powerful against the heat of concupiscence as the remembrance of our Savior’s Passion. In all my difficulties I never found anything so efficacious as the wounds of Christ: In them I sleep secure; from them I derive new life.”
– Saint Augustine

“God bestows more consideration on the purity of the intention with which our actions are performed than on the actions themselves.”
– Saint Augustine

“He alone loves the Creator perfectly who manifests a pure love for his neighbor.”
– Saint Bede the Venerable

“You carry your snare everywhere and spread your nets in all places. You allege that you never invited others to sin. You did not indeed, by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment.”
– Saint John Chrysostom

“Let your modesty be a sufficient incitement, yea, an exhortation to everyone to be at peace on their merely looking at you.”
– Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Saint Lawrence Of Brindisi Led Crusade Against Muslims In Hungry 1601

In 1600, the sultan of Constantinople, Mohamed III (Mehmed), bragged that he would conquer Europe and use the altar of St. Peter’s Basilica as an animal trough for Turkish horses.  This sultan was already famous for having had his 19 brothers and half brothers executed to secure his power.  Over and over again, the Ottoman sultans kept attempting to conquer Catholic Europe.

14-lepanto-alvaro-de-bazan-300pxA few years before this, in 1571, Don Juan of Austria, with the help of God, Mary (The 15 decade Holy Rosary), the Catholic league and St. Pope Pius V, defeated the Ottomans at the Battle of Lepanto.217-Lepanto5

30 years later, Pope Clement VIII asked St. Lawrence of Brindisi, a Capuchin friar, to go to Germany to organize their princes into a crusade against the muslim attacks going on in Hungry.  He was very successful and organized the crucial resistance needed to save Europe.

hungary3.jpgAt this same time, Protestant Queen Elizabeth I, was courting the Ottoman turks to make an alliance with England.  She sent a jeweled musical organ to the sultan that had mechanical birds that sang as the organ was played.  It arrived on a large English gunship that the sultan studied and copied to use in his future battles to conquer more European Catholic territory.

246_LawrenceThe Battle of Stuhlweissenburg Hungry took place on October 11, 1601.  St. Lawrence led the battle on a horse carrying a large cross in front of the troops.  Again on October 14th of that same month, these Catholic forces, with St. Lawrence leading, had to fight the muslims in another battle and won.  

CrusaderChurchSt. Lawrence, when leading the troops in front into battle, was miraculously saved from all injury and claimed that all the success came from God and Mary.  The Catholic troops, numbering 18,000 men, way out numbered by 80,000 muslims.  The Turks, after suffering the loss of 30,000 men,  withdrew their army behind the Danube.

Many of the great saints, like St. Bernard of Clairvaux and St. King Louis the IX of France, organized and participated in the crusades.  St. Louis died on a crusade at Tunis North Africa on the 25th of August, 1270.

Whenever the crusades were led by holy people and all those envolved prayed and fasted, they had success.  Whenever they were unjust or doing evil sins, they lost.

life_louis_hiLet us pray to St. Lawrence of Brindisi, and all the other saints, to help all the Catholics (and others), who are at this very moment, suffering terribly under muslims all over the world.
