Pope Leo XIII

Pope Leo XIII was born Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci in Carpineto Romano, near Rome in 1810 and was ordained a catholic priest in 1837. He always lived in the real world, as a young priest he had the courage to confront the power of the local mafia in the city of Benevento; and he had the human sentiment to care for the poor and the ill in Perugia.

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil. Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. More »

His Vision

One day (October 13), after celebrating Mass, the aged Pope Leo XIII was in conference with the Cardinals when suddenly he sank to the floor in a deep swoon. Physicians who hastened to his side could find no trace of his pulse and feared that he had expired. However, after a short interval the Holy Father regained consciousness and exclaimed with great emotion:\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" More »

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

In today’s Sunday Mass first reading we hear St. Simon Peter preaching about the Lord Jesus. It was a wonderful sermon. A sermon for all seasons and all times. Recorded in the Book of the Acts of the Apostles (chapter 3), we shall highlight briefly parts of this inspiring sermon.

In it St Peter refers to our Lord Jesus Christ as:

The Holy One
The Just One
The Author of Life
The Prophet, spoken about by Moses

And concerning this Prophet it is said in the Sacred Scriptures:

“The Lord God will raise up for you a Prophet
from your brethren as he raised me up.
You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.
23 And it shall be that every soul
that does not listen to that Prophet
shall be destroyed from the people.”
(Acts 3 v 22-23; cf Deuteronomy 18 v 18-19)

Therefore, brothers and sisters, be in no doubt that whosoever rejects or denies Jesus of Nazareth as Messiah and Lord has already condemned himself; and will be completely cut-off  from God’s own people.

Consequently, we urge you to hold-on tightly to your Catholic Faith even in this time of contradictions. For there is no other name, nor any other religion, by which men can be saved.

Save yourselves from this wicked generation. (cf Acts 2 v 40)
.

Petition of the Week:

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

 

Psalm of the Week:

Psalm 63 – a psalm by David while in the desert of Judah.

“O God, you are my God,
and I long for you.
My whole being desires you;
like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land,
my soul is thirsty for you.
Let me see you in the sanctuary;
let me see how mighty and glorious you are.
Your constant love is better than life itself,
and so I will praise you.
I will give you thanks as long as I live;
I will lift my hands [to your name] in prayer.
My soul will feast and be satisfied,
and I will sing glad songs of praise to you.

As I lie in bed, I remember you;
all night long I think of you,
    because you have always been my help.
In the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
I cling to you,
and your hand keeps me safe.

Those who are trying to kill me
will go down into the world of the dead.
10 They will be killed in battle,
and their bodies eaten by wolves.
11 Because God gives him victory,
the king will rejoice.
Those who make promises in God’s name will praise him,
but the mouths of liars will be shut.”

Halleluyah!

The Spirit says come!

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

Brethren, our attention has been drawn to a popular quotation attributed to the former Archbishop of Chicago – Cardinal Francis George – who died yesterday (April 17th, 2015).

The Cardinal is well respected in many conservative circles in the USA for his defense of Catholic Church dogmas about the family.

The popular quotation, we want to consider, goes thus:

I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history.”

Let us break down this interesting quote:

1) “I expect to die in bed”

The Cardinal’s first prediction has come true. We commiserate with his family and friends and the entire Chicago Archdiocese.

May the souls of all the Faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in Peace. Amen.

2) “my successor will die in prison”

On this second prediction, there has to be a caveat. And that caveat is this: provided the successor in question is ready and willing to defend, with courage, the sacred dogmas of the Catholic Church.

With so many controversial prelates, bishops and cardinals out there, will the successor to Cardinal Francis George be willing to go to prison for Church dogmas?

With sadness we have to say the signs so far are not too good. But we shall continue to pray for the Lord to give all of us the spirit of Fidelity to Church Doctrine, and the spirit of Repentance.

3) “his successor will die a martyr in the public square”

Same thing applies in this instance.

Will a successor, to the place of the Catholic Archbishop of  Chicago, be willing to die for the 2000 year old dogmas of the Church?

Perhaps.

But the statistics are stacked against it. This prediction, sadly, we have to say may be improbable for many a prelate in the present day. Still hopefully and prayerfully we look unto the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the end the Church of Christ will win. The Catholic Church, the Bride of Christ, will come out victorious.

4) “His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history”

Certainly the Church has done such in the past. But in the crisis that we face now, this will not happen the way it happened in the past. For the simple reason that there is not enough time for such.

Simply put, the time is up.

The threat that western civilization faces – indeed the threat that the whole human race faces – is one from which there will be no full recovery has in times past.

We are in the last days as prophesied by Sacred Scriptures and by many Catholic Seers.

Therefore the last scenario envisaged by the late Cardinal Francis George, though full of historic insight, will just not happen.

Consequently, we urge you once again, brothers and sisters, let us gird our loins and prepare for the tougher time ahead.

We all need to pray, pray and pray so that we do not enter into temptations.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls into Heaven, especially those most in need of your mercy.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

T he Spirit says come!

COME LORD JESUS!

The Church has always had enemies both within and without. But in the period of the End-Time it is the enemies within (the wolves in sheep’s clothing) that are crucial.

And in this internal battle our indispensable and powerful allies are the Holy Angels. And in particular St. Michael the Archangel. Therefore, brethren, let us cultivate the holy habit of so many Saints in the history of the Church who had devotion to these heavenly friends.

In the battle for the destiny of the Catholic Church we cannot afford to underrate the enemy; neither can we afford to neglect our allies.

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us
St. Gabriel the Archangel, pray for us
St. Raphael the Archangel, pray for us

Mother Mary, Queen of the Angels, pray for us.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

The Spirit says come!

In today’s morning Mass, St. John the Evangelist tells us:

 The Father loves the Son,

36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life;
he who does not obey the Son shall not see life,
but the punishment of God rests upon him.”
(John 3 v 35-36)
