Our Step-by-Step Rosary


Pray the Rosary Daily!

The Holy Rosary, by age-old tradition, has shown itself particularly effective

as a prayer which brings the family together.


On Nov. 12, 2022, the 40-days St. Martin fast commence.


The St. Martin Fast is an old traditional fast linked to St. Martin of Tours. It has sort of disappeared but it is a wonderful period leading up and through the Advent season into the Christmas season. It ends on Dec. 21.


On Dec 20, the four days abstinence commence so our fast and the abstinence goes hand in hand up to Christmas Eve, one at midnight, one at dawn, and one during the day and each Mass is distinct and highlights a different aspect of Christmas.


(Midnight Mass which ought to start at midnight, which is the Mass for the Angels,

the morning Mass is for the shepherds,

and finally, the Christmas Day Mass; the King's Mass).


On Nov 13, there is apparently an attempt to "promote" the "Ten Universal Principles for Climate Justice" which will take place by the mountain Sinai and it is linked to the COP-27 climate conference.


God gave the world the ten commandments, and here are a bunch of "inter-faith" religious leaders who is going to give the world ten climate commandments. How about NOT breaching the first Commandment... "Thou shall not have other gods before me", Exo 20:3.


Are we going to be punished by God for mocking his ten Commandments?


Our Step-by-Step Rosary community will hopefully offer their 40-day fast against the mocking of God's Ten Commandments.

... through the 9 Ways We Participate in Other People's Sins:


  1. By Counsel
  2. By Par-taking
  3. By Consent
  4. By Provocation (to instigate others)
  5. By Praise or Flattery
  6. By Silence to Conceal the sin
  7. By not Punish the Sinner
  8. By Command or appeal/request
  9. By Defence of the ill done


    The Devil celebrates your "victory" but leaves you alone with the consequences.

    And these consequences are not good.

    Evil wants to alinate you from others. The more alone you are, the more darkness is around you.



    The modern Catholic Catechesis states in Article 8, Number 5, Point 1868: "The Proliferation of Sin".


    "Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
    - by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
    - by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
    - by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
    - by protecting evil-doers."



    In the point 1869:


    "Thus sin makes men accomplices of one another and causes concupiscence, violence, and injustice to reign among them.

    Sins give rise to social situations and institutions that are contrary to the divine goodness.

    "Structures of sin" are the expression and effect of personal sins. They lead their victims to do evil in their turn.

    In an analogous sense, they constitute a "social sin."



    The points 1868 and 1869 are the nine ways of how we participate in others sin, regardless if we understand that we are used by others.

    That is also why the nine mentioned ways are of importance to put the foot down and say NO or STOP.



    The word consequence is interesting as Merriam-Webster defines it as "a condition or occurrence traceable to a cause".


    Is there a consequence of your actions?

    Sancte Michael Archángele,

    defénde nos in prœlio;

    contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

    Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

    tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

    qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

    divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

    Ámen

    On the Day of the Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary MMXIX
