For the greater part of the twentieth century,…

For the greater part of the twentieth century, the faithful recited the prayer to St. Michael at the end of the Mass. Pope Leo XIII (d. 1903) had a prophetic vision of the coming century of sorrow and war. After celebrating Mass, the Holy Father was conferring with his cardinals. Suddenly, he fell to the floor. The cardinals immediately called for a doctor. No pulse was detected, and the Holy Father was feared dead. Just as suddenly, Pope Leo awoke and said, “What a horrible picture I was permitted to see!” In this vision, God gave Satan the choice of one century in which to do his worst work against the Church. The devil chose the twentieth century. So moved was the Holy Father from this vision that he composed the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “St. 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 power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls.” Pope Leo ordered this prayer said at the conclusion of Mass in 1886. (When Pope Paul VI issued the Novus Ordo of the Mass in 1968, the prayer to St. Michael and the reading of the “last gospel” at the end of the Mass were suppressed.)
In the Spring of 1994, our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, urged the faithful to offer the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. He also made the strong suggestion that the recitation of the prayer be instituted at Mass once again. (Note that the Holy Father did not mandate the recitation of the prayer at Mass.) Clearly, the Holy Father was responding to the grave evils we see present in our world– the sins of abortion, euthanasia, terrorism, genocide, and the like. Satan and the other fallen angels are doing their best to lead souls to Hell. We need the help of St. Michael! For this reason, many parishes have erected a shrine in St. Michael’s honor or offer the prayer in his honor at the conclusion of Mass.

Hi everyone! I’d like to introduce you to Edu, a nine year old boy who has been fighting childhood leukemia for almost half of his life.
Edu has had leukemia since he was five. He is unable to attend school due to his illness, but still enjoys many activities kids his age participate in, such as playing Fortnite and walking his dog, Oakley.
His parents have found an experimental treatment in Washington D.C., and could use any monetary support to help Edu keep fighting leukemia.
If you are unable to donate, we ask that you please keep Edu and his family in your prayers, as we are all praying to God that the experimental treatment will provide Edu with the strength to keep up his courageous battle. Thank you for for all of your support, both spiritual and monetary.

“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put in that action.”
This nearly mirrors the Little Flower’s famous saying, “We must do small things with great love.” When we put this into practice with our family members, it may well involve doing the petty, grievous things, such as getting a child a glass of water or bringing in the newspaper for our spouse. But these acts, when done with kindness and true charity, multiply so that the home is filled with harmony and love.

“At 19, @kaepernick7’s birth mother found herself pregnant, and wanted to give her son the best life he could possibly have. She wanted him to have adoptive parents who could provide him with love, a family, and instill in him her love for sports. Rick and Teresa Kaepernick adopted Colin at five weeks old. And yet despite the fact that Kaepernick’s birth mother chose life for him, Kaepernick has just donated $25,000 to a pro-abortion group.
.
He took to Instagram to announce his latest charitable beneficiaries, which included the Center for Reproductive Rights, a legal advocacy group dedicated to advancing abortion. They responded by saying the donation “made their day.
.
”The Center for Reproductive Rights is responsible for what may be the creepiest ad of all time. The video, which has since been removed from Youtube, featured actor Mehcad Brooks holding a rose sitting in front of a fireplace, wishing a happy anniversary for Roe v. Wade. Brooks repeatedly calls the viewer “baby,” behaves in an overtly sexual manner, and uses phrases like “tear us apart,” a cringeworthy choice for an ad celebrating abortion.
.
The Center for Reproductive Rights also joined in a coalition dedicated to increasing “supply and demand” for abortion, and have fought against common-sense laws that protect women, like requiring admitting privileges for abortionists, which prevents them from patient-dumping at hospital emergency rooms. It is unfortunate that @kaepernick7, whose mother gave him the gift of life, is working to help rob other children of that very same gift.”.
.
PLEASE KEEP HIM IN YOUR PRAYERS🙏
Use this powerful gift of prayer to win blessings for the world that does not pray, forgiveness for sinners who do not ask for forgiveness, and faith for those who have never heard the name of Christ or who have heard it only to turn away toward worldly pursuits. Our Heavenly Father is a loving Father who is ready to assist us, let’s seek His assistance to guide all to the Truth.

“No one, however weak, is denied a share in the victory of the cross. No one is beyond the help of the prayer of Christ. His prayer brought benefit to the multitude that raged against him. How much more does it bring to those who turn to him in repentance.” -St. Leo the Great

Ltd. since 1991 and is a highly accomplished businessman with years spent as a top executive, steering various companies into seasons of vast profits. But it is not money that motivates Phillip to succeed in the business world as he told this young man.

“All of us our broken,” Philip explained. “We all have a missing piece. For me, I discovered that the missing piece was God in Jesus Christ.”

“When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light.” -St. Josemaria Escriva

In fine, “thy name, O Mother of God, is filled with divine graces and blessings,” as St. Methodius says. So much so, that St. Bonaventure declares, “that thy name, O Mary, cannot be pronounced without bringing some grace to him who does so devoutly.”. . grant, O Lady, that we may often remember to name thee with love and confidence; for this practice either shows the possession of divine grace, or else is a pledge that we shall soon recover it.

On the other hand, Thomas a Kempis affirms “that the devils fear the Queen of heaven to such a degree, that only on hearing her great name pronounced, they fly from him who does so as from a burning fire.” The Blessed Virgin herself revealed to St. Bridget “that there is not on earth a sinner, however devoid he may be of the love of God, from whom the devil is not obliged immediately to fly, if he invokes her holy name with a determination to repent.” On another occasion she repeated the same thing to the saint, saying, “that all the devils venerate and fear her name to such a degree, that on hearing it they immediately loosen the claws with which they hold the soul captive.” Our Blessed Lady also told St. Bridget, “that in the same way as the rebel angels fly from sinners who invoke the name of Mary, so also do the good angels approach nearer to just souls who pronounce her name with devotion.”

Fr. @tomasravaioli is asking for our help!! He is serving in Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 and wants to help buy treatment for the kids:
FUNDRAISER DESCRIPTION:
In our mission in Papua New Guinea, we are helping a lot of kids with a skin disease called “Grille”.
Transmission is usually by direct personal contact between family members sharing household items or from parent to child soon after birth. High humidity and warmth are likely environmental factors in the incidence of infection.
In order to get rid of this disease, each kid has to take a tablet of a medicine called “Griseofulvin” once a day, and each tablet costs USD 1. And since they should take medicines during 300 days, the full treatment to help a kid costs USD 300.
Please Consider Donating & Sharing the #GoFundMe Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/helpingkidsinpapuanewguinea
