A PRAYER AGAINST THE PERSECUTORS OF THE HOLY MOTHER CHURCH

Raccolta #718

MEMORARE - PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone

who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thine intercession

was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence,

I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;

to thee do 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


MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria,

non esse auditum a saeculo,

quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia,

tua implorantem auxilia,

tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum.

Ego tali animatus confidentia,

ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio,

coram te gemens peccator assisto.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere;

sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Amen

cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

NOW THE HOLY ROSARY COMMENCE



On the Crucifix of Rosary:

One begins by holding the Crucifix of the Holy Rosary,

kiss it,

do the sign of the Cross and pray:

SIGN OF THE CROSS

Signum Crucis

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen


+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen

Thereafter (still at the Cross) pray the Apostles' Creed.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord,

                                       Bow /kneel

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

                                    end of bow/kneel

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again

from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God

the Father almighty,

from there He shall come to judge

the living and the dead.

                                

I believe

in the Holy Spirit,

the Holy Catholic Church,

the Communion of Saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body

and life everlasting.    

Amen

"And when the sabbath had passed,

Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Very early on the first of the week they came to the sepulcher, the sun having risen.

And they said among themselves: Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?

And looking up they see that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very great.

They entered the sepulcher and saw a young man, sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe;

and they were amazed.

He says to them: “Be not amazed. You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified; he has risen,

he is not here: see the place where they laid him.”


And going out they fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment had seized them;

and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid."

9And when he had said these things, as they beheld, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.

"And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all together at the same time.

And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a rushing, violent blast,

and filled the whole house where they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues like fire distributing themselves, and it sat on each one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.  All were astonished, saying:


”And how hear we, each one in our own language?

How hear we them speaking in our own tongues, the mighty works of God?

"But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those that have fallen asleep, 

that you sorrow not as the rest also who have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also those that have fallen asleep, will God through Jesus bring with him.

For this we say to you in the word of the Lord, that we, the living, who remain over to the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those that have fallen asleep; "the Lord himself, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall arise first … to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we always be with the Lord."

And a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; And I heard a voice from heaven like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps. And they sung a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one was able to learn the song, … And in their mouth was found no guile; for they are blameless.


And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Let's pray (for our Shepherds):


In the Name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, 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, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil.

 

O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen


O Jesus, this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, for the Holy Father and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


O Holy Mother of Priests, protect all priests from the dangers of their holy profession and lead the stray cardinals, bishops and priests who have failed their sublime vocation, with your kind motherly hand, back to the good shepherd! Amen



Let us pray for our Holy Father – Pope Francis I - and his eternal soul and pray for the Popes Raccolta intentions:

May the Lord preserve him and give him life and make him to be blessed upon the earth and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.


May Thy hand be upon Thine holy servant and upon Thy son whom Thou hast anoited.


Lord Jesus, shelter our Holy Father the Pope under the protection of Thy Sacred Heart.

Be Thou his light, his strength and his consolation.

Prayer to St Michael the Archangel

Raccolta ed. 1903, p. 364-366, Pope Leo XIII (1888)

 

Most glorious prince of the heavenly hosts, Archangel St. Michael, defend us in the battle and in the tremendous struggle we carry on against the Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness and all evil spirits. Come to the help of man, whom God created immortal, fashioned to his own image and likeness, and rescued at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. With the great army of the holy angels fight to-day the battle of the Lord as thou didst of old fight against Lucifer, the leader of the proud, and his apostate angels, who were powerless against thee, and they had no longer a place in heaven ; and that monster/ the old serpent who is called the devil and Satan, that seduces the whole world, was cast into hell with his angels. But now that first enemy and homicide has regained his insolent boldness. Taking on the appearance of an angel of light, he has invaded the earth, and, with his whole train of evil spirits, he is prowling about among men, striving to blot out the name of God and of his Christ, to capture, to destroy, to drag to eternal perdition the souls destined to the crown of eternal glory. That malignant dragon is pouring abroad, like a foul stream, into the souls of men of ruined intellect and corrupt heart the poison of his wickedness, the spirit of lying, of impiety and blasphemy, the pestilent breath of impurity and of all vice and iniquity. Most cunning enemies have filled with bitterness and drenched with gall the Church, the Spouse of the Lamb without spot, and have lifted impious hands against all that is most sacred in it. Even in the holy place where the See of Blessed Peter and the chair of truth was set up to enlighten the world, they have raised the abominable throne of their impiety with the iniquitous hope that the Shepherd may be stricken and the flock scattered abroad.

Arise, then, unconquerable Prince, defend the people of God against the assaults of the reprobate spirits, and give them the victory. Holy Church reveres thee as its guardian and patron ; it glories in thee as its defender against the malignant powers of hell ; to thee God has committed the souls that are to be conveyed to the seats of the Blessed in eternal happiness. Pray, then, to the God of peace, that he may put Satan under our feet, so completely vanquished that he may no longer be able to hold men in bondage and work harm to the Church. Offer up our prayers before the Most High, so that the mercies of the Lord may prevent us, and lay hold of the dragon, the old serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and hurl him bound in chains into the abyss where he may no longer seduce the souls of men.

Amen.

 

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord, fly ye hostile ranks.

R. The Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has conquered.


V. May thy mercies, O Lord, be fulfilled in us.

R. As we have hoped in thee.


V. Lord, hear my prayer.

R. And let my cry come unto thee.

 

Let us pray.

O God, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon thy holy name and humbly beseech thy clemency, that, through the intercession of the ever immaculate Virgin and our Mother Mary, and of the glorious Archangel Saint Michael, thou wouldst vouchsafe to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits that are prowling about the world to the great peril of the human race and the loss of souls.

Amen.

 

His Holiness, Leo XIII., Motu Proprio, September 25, 1888,

granted to the faithful who recite the above prayer

An indulgence of three hundred days, once a day.

+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen

For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of soberness of mind...
