When in the state of grace, Our Lord gives us all the graces we need to become a saint in one single reception of Holy Communion. While our Lord will do all that is necessary to make us holy, we must cooperate with Him and humbly return the favor.
Oh how unworthy we as a fallen human race are to be in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in our parishes. Even though Christ is King, He humbly remains quiet in the appearances of simple earthly elements: bread and wine.
When the Blessed Sacrament was suspended in the air at Fatima, the Angel prostrated himself and repeated the prayer:
“O most Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—I adore thee profoundly. I offer thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ—present in all the tabernacles of the world—in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.”
How often do we hear horror stories that involve sacrilegious actions? For example: many receiving our Dear King unworthy by refusing to confess mortal sin, later going to the Communion Rail out of pride?
What about the grave abuse of receiving Him in the hands which later results in the infamous action of wiping off the Sacred Particles onto the pants, later falling onto the ground or into the washing machines of many?
Friends, the Sacred Host is so delicate that miniature particles break off from it easier than a Protestant breaks off from the Church.
For my dear brothers that serve the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we know this is especially the case when the Host comes into contact with the paten. Can those who receive in the hands really say they believe in the real presence?
I call the reception in the hands another form of the satanic black mass for the very reason that the Sacred Host is blasphemed against by selfish and impious actions. While it may seem harsh to many, this is sadly the reality.
If the angel at Fatima prostrated himself in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, who says we are anymore worthy by pridefully rejecting to show reverence and piety? Is the rejection of reverence and piety not something we see in so many parishes these days ever since the ambiguous & innovative council of 1962?
So what is the solution to these abuses one may ask? We must pray and make sacrifices. We must pray our daily rosaries and wear the brown scapular. We must offer up the Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord to the Father and be open to His Will. We must stay faithful to the first Friday and Saturday devotions in Honor of The Most Holy Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary. We must pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We must remain in the state of grace and remain close to the sacraments. If you aren’t already doing this, change that and start today!
Friends, these are the only ways we can decrease sin in the world. We must step up our prayer routine up a notch and increase holiness in this world for the conversion of sinners so that we may be with God forever in the next. Make peace with your enemies, do penance, sin no more, and pray for the conversion of sinners.
Oh God, grant us poor sinners the graces necessary to shine forth Thy light in these dark times. Amen. May God Bless you.
Remember to pray your rosaries daily and to wear the brown scapular. The daily morning consecration to the Brown Scapular is a pledge of obedience to Our Lady’s promises, which is to wear the brown scapular out of devotion for Sanctifying Grace and Her Immaculate Conception so that the soul shall not perish eternity in the eternal flames of Hell.
The full promise of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to Saint Simon Stock July 16, 1251
“Accept this Scapular. It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and a pledge of peace. Whosoever dies clothed in this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.”
Note: The promise must be taken in context. It would be heresy to confuse the Scapular with a good luck charm that automatically brings one to Heaven after death. It is true devotion to Our Lady that will keep us in Sanctifying Grace as long as we cooperate with the Graces Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, gives us.
While we continue to wear our Brown Scalulars that Our Lady has given us as an instrument of Grace through devotion to Her Immaculate Conception, let us remember to pray for the salvation of souls and for those in Purgatory.

7. Wear the brown scapular.
8. Stay close to the confessional and repent of your sins.
9.Be in sanctifying grace.
10. Study Catholic apologetics and the faith by reading the catechism of Trent, the encyclicals by pre Vatican 2 Popes, and the council’s previous to Vatican 2.
11. Pray for the Pope and the Bishops.
12. Pray for the Consecration of RUSSIA (emphasis added, Russia alone and not the whole world) to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In other words, be a saint.
Important Note: The image does not reflect reality. Animals do not possess immortal souls, therefore they do not pray nor repent of any sin since they cannot commit any. The image simply encourages prayer. However, the animals do praise God by their very existence.
It is because of the fall of Adam and Eve that Original Sin has come into the world as a consequence for disobedience to the commands of God. Being that we are human beings with a fallen nature, we are attached to sin. However, it is by God’s Grace that we can avoid sin and near occasions of sin. It is Catholic dogma that the only spotless Humans to be purely immaculate and free of sin are both Our Lord Jesus Christ – being that He is God and cannot contradict His own nature since He is Almighty and Good – and Our Immaculate Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary.
It is at the very moment of our death that the devil and his minions tempt the soul to fall into sin so that the soul may descend into Hell for all eternity; therefore loosing all hope for salvation and also loosing the possibility of attaining Eternal Life and the Beatific Vision. “Moreover we define that according to the general disposition of God, the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down into hell immediately after death and there suffer the pain of hell.” (Encyclical “On the Beatific Vision of God” Issued by Pope Benedict XII in 1336).
What a aweful tragedy it is to be tempted, especially at death since the time on earth to save ones soul is absolutely over. The Catholic Church teaches that it is a spiritual work of mercy to pray for souls and their conversion so that they may be saved, especially for the souls in purgatory in whom are already saved but thirst for Heaven since there are not any prayers being said for them. So what can we do to pray for souls at the hour of their death so that they may not be tempted? I invite you to join me in the following prayer. You won’t regret it. Let’s not forget that some day we will die and we will need prayers for us at the hour of our death as well, for we cry out to Our Dearest Lady: “Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
A Prayer for the Dying and a Special Soul
“O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,
I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,
and by the sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother,
wash clean in Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world
who are to die this day.
Remember most especially the soul I spiritually adopt
with the intention of entrusting him or her to Thy Shepherd’s care:
I beseech Thee for the grace to move this sinner, who is in
danger of going to Hell, to repent. I ask this because of my
trust in Thy great mercy.
If it should please Thy Majesty to send me a suffering this day
in exchange for the grace I ask for this soul, then, it, too,
shall please me very much, and I thank Thee, Most Sweet Jesus,
Shepherd and Lover of Souls; I thank Thee for this
opportunity to give mercy in thanksgiving for all the mercies
Thou hast shown me. Amen.
Heart of Jesus, once in agony, have mercy on the dying. Amen”
Let us all keep each other in prayer for salvation. The way is very narrow to Heaven, however, the way to Hell is very wide. Pray for me as well, dear friends, for the TAB is also a sinner. God Bless You!
Being that we live in dark times in which the errors of Russia have and continue to spread throughout the world and the Church as predicted by Our Lady of Fatima, causing apostasy and schism, it is important to recite the prayers of the most Holy Rosary daily in which was given by Our Immaculate Mother Mary, Theotokos; Mother of God Incarnate so that we do not become deceived and fall into Mortal Sin (God Forbid).
We as Roman Catholics have to remember that the 15 promises of Our Lady to Saint Dominic and to those who recite the Most Holy Rosary daily with devotion will always be in affect since the aid of those in Heaven will never deceive nor lie to the flock, that being the Church.
“The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.”
This promise that I am emphasizing, my dear friends, is a message of Hope. It is by prayer and God’s grace that we can convert the modernists within Holy Mother Church. Let us continue to do just that and even encourage heretics to do the same for their own salvation since it is dogma that there is no salvation outside the true faith. So remember, for the love of Jesus Christ and His Church: pray, pray, pray.
As we are all aware, today a tragic event has taken place in which a man has taken three lives today. Not only two news reporters, but his own life after shooting himself; later dying in the Hospital. I would like to wish the families of the victims and the shooter my condolences and my prayers. I ask all of you to please pray on the behalf of all the souls departed. Remember them in your rosaries. Remember them at Mass. Remember them in your litanies. I pray that each of them died in sanctifying grace. Kyrie Elison. May eternal light shine upon them and may they all rest in peace. Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy. Amen.
July 13, 1917, Our Lady revealed that she would come to ask for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart and for the Communion of Reparation of the Five First Saturdays. As a result, she asked for the devotion in 1925 and the consecration in 1929.
While staying at the House of the Dorothean Sister in Pontevedra, Portugal, Sister Lucia received a vision on December 10, 1925 where the Blessed Mother appeared alongside a Boy who stood over a luminous cloud. Our Lady rested one hand on the Boy’s shoulder while she held on the other hand a heart pierced with thorns around it.
Sister Lucia heard the Boy say, “Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother which is covered with thorns with which ingrate men pierce it at every moment with no one to make an act of reparation to pull them out.”
Our Lady expressed her request in the following words,
“See, my daughter, My Heart surrounded with thorns with which ingrates pierce me at every moment with blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at least, make sure to console me and announce that all those who for five months, on the first Saturdays, go to confession, receive Communion, say five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for 15 minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the purpose of making reparation to Me, I promise to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls.”
A few days afterward, Sister Lucia detailed this vision in a letter addressed to Monsignor Manuel Pereira Lopes, her confessor when she resided in the Asylum of Vilar in the city of Oporto, Portugal.
” . . . . suddenly the entire convent Chapel was illuminated in a supernatural light, and a Cross of light appeared over the altar and reached the ceiling. On the superior part the face of man was seen and his body down to the waist. A dove of light was over his chest and nailed to the Cross was another man. Suspended in air over his waist I was able to see a chalice with a large Host. Drops of Blood from the face of Jesus Crucified and His pierced side fell into the the chalice, dripping from the Host. Beneath the right arm on the Cross was Our Lady. It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without thorns or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames. Underneath the left arm on the Cross, big letters, similar to crystal water came down to the altar forming these words: Grace and Mercy.’ ”
Lucia said : “I understood it was the mystery of the Blessed Trinity that was revealed to me, and I perceived inner light about this mystery which I’m unable to reveal. The Blessed Virgin told me: The time has come in which God asks the Holy Father that in union with all the bishops of the world the consecration of Russia to my Heart be made, I promise salvation through this means.’ Preventing diffusion of error and advance its conversion.”
Note: the Consecration has not been done validly. See Link
The elements for the 1st Saturday devotion
1- Confession: Essential for the journey of repentance and conversion.
2- Eucharist: The first fruit of this devotion is the worship of the Holy Eucharist in three ways: sacrifice, communion, and adoration.
3-Holy Rosary prayer with two aspects: prayer, meditation. Five mysteries are to be prayed.
4- The promise of salvation
Meditation of the Holy Rosary:
The vocal prayer of the Rosary has always been fundamentally based on the interior act of meditation on the mysteries of the life, sufferings, and glory of our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The prayer that our Lady requested us to pray after each mystery is : “Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.” In this prayer, we are praying for the conversion and eternal salvation of the souls of sinners.
These sinners may be very obstinate in their sins, refusing to repent. Some are unknowingly in mortal sin and are at the precipice of death. Finally, there are those who because of circumstances of location or education, are far from the possibility of finding a priest and receiving the sacraments, even in their last moments.
The graces and merits from the reparation and prayers of Christians who are united in meditation with the Heart of Mary, Mother and refuge of sinners, are especially for these poor souls “most in need of God’s mercy.”
Promise of Salvation:
To those who practice this devotion of the First Five Saturdays of the Month, Our Lady promised: “I promise to assist them at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation.” She does not promise eternal salvation, but the graces necessary for salvation.
There are many testimonies from souls particularly devoted to the Heart of Mary who receive knowledge from heaven about the proximity of their hour of death. It is not necessarily an announcement of death, but a new awareness and need to receive the sacraments with more dignity, a purer intention in all their actions, and an intensification of charity and dedication to their apostolate. The Heart of Mary perfects the souls of her children until they reach their decisive encounter with their Divine Savior.
My sweet and most Holy Adorable Lord, Jesus Christ, have mercy on me; a sinner; who has offended Thee through my own fault, through my own fault, and through my own fault alone. I thank Thee for having spared me and loving me even though I have sinned against Thee countless times throughout my life. I ask that Thou giveth me and all my dear friends, benefactors, enemies, – and all of those that I have come in contact with – the Grace to do Thy Will and to overcome sin and near occasion of sin. Breath fourth The Holy Ghost within our souls, and we shalt have life. Pour fourth thy Precious Blood upon us, and we shalt be made white as snow. Praise Be Thy Holy Name forever and ever. Save souls, especially those approaching death with sin upon theirs. Be merciful oh Sovereign King. All thou Holy Saints in Heaven, pray for us. Amen.
