MEMORARE - PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD


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



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

Prayer for Protection of the Rosary prayer and intentions:


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

Saint 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 Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.  

Amen

Act of Contrition

Padre Pio


A prayer to commence the Holy Rosary with a honest mind and heart:



+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen


Deus meus, ex toto corde pænitet me omnium meorum peccatorum,

eaque detestor, quia peccando, non solum pœnas a te iuste statutas promeritus sum,

sed præsertim quia offendi te, summum bonum,

ac dignum qui super omnia diligaris.

Ideo firmiter propono, adiuvante gratia tua,

de cetero me non peccaturum peccandique occasiones proximas fugiturum. 

Amen



O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,

and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell,

but most of all because they offend Thee, my God,

who art all good and deserving of all my love.

I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to confess my sins,

to do penance, and to amend my life 

Amen


.

make us close this beloved Heart

in life, in death, in time and eternity;

for the sick; the dying;

for the conversion of sinners and for the souls in Purgatory;

Act of Reparation for the Acts of Worship of Wooden Idols and Symbols

H.E. Bishop Anthanasius Schneider




“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

receive through the hands of the Immaculate Mother of God and Ever Virgin Mary from our contrite heart a sincere act of reparation for the acts of worship of wooden idols and symbols, which occurred in Rome, the Eternal City and the heart of the Catholic world, during the Synod for the Amazon.

Pour out in the heart of Our Holy Father Pope Francis, of the Cardinals, of the Bishops, of the priests and lay faithful,

your Spirit, who will expel the darkness of the minds, so that they might recognize the impiety of such acts,

which offended your Divine majesty and offer to you public and private acts of reparation.


Pour out in all members of the Church the light of the fulness and beauty of the Catholic Faith.

Enkindle in them the burning zeal of bringing the salvation of Jesus Christ, true God and true man, to all men,

especially to the people in the Amazon region, who still are enslaved in the service of feeble material and perishable things,

as they are the deaf and mute symbols and idols of “mother earth”, to all people and especially to the people of the Amazonian tribes, who do not have the liberty of the children of God, and who do not have the unspeakable happiness to know Jesus Christ and to have in Him part in the life of your Divine nature.  


Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

you the one true God, besides Whom there is no other god and no salvation, have mercy on your Church.  

Look especially upon the tears and the contrite and humble sighs of the little ones in the Church,

look upon the tears and prayers of the little children, of the adolescents,

of young men and young women, of the fathers and mothers of family

and also of the true Christian heroes, who in their zeal for your glory

and in their love for Mother Church threw in the water the symbols of abomination which defiled her.


Have mercy on us: spare us, O Lord, 

parce Domine, parce Domine!


Have mercy on us: 

Kyrie eleison!”


Amen

On Medallion

1st Sorrowful mystery - primum mysterium Dolorósa

The Agony of Jesus in the Garden - Horto Olivarum

Mark 14:32-42

They come to a place, named Gethsemane; and he says to his disciples:

Sit here till I pray.

 

He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be

distressed and in anguish, and said to them:

My soul is encompassed with sorrow even to death: remain here and keep watch.

 

And going forward a little he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him; and he said:

Abba, Father, all things are possible for thee; remove this cup from me:

yet not what I will, but what thou want.

 

And he comes back and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter:

Simon, sleepest thou? hadst thou not strength to watch one hour? Watch and pray,

pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.


And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words.


And, when he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what they should answer him. Returning the third time he says to them:

Sleep ye now and take your rest?

It is enough; the hour has come:

behold, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of sinners.

 

Rise, let us go: Behold, he that betray me is at hand.

2nd Sorrowful mystery - secundum mysterium Dolorósa

Jesus before Pilate - Iesus Flagellatus

Mark 15:1-15, Matt 27-17, 19, 21, 24-26

Immediately in the morning, the chief priests holding consultation, with the elders, the scribes and the whole Council. They bound Jesus and led him away, and delivered him to Pilate.


Pilate asked him:

Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him:

Thou sayest.

 

The chief priests accused him of many things and Pilate again asked him:

Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee.


Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.

 

At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose.

And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder.The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. Pilate said to them:

Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?

 

And while he sat on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying:

Have nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered much this day in a dream because of him.

 

The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd that they should ask for Barabbas, and to have Jesus destroyed. The governor said to them:

Which of the two will you that I release to you?


They said: Barabbas.


Pilate again answered and said to them:

What then will you that I shall do with him whom you call King of the Jews?


They again cried out: Crucify him.

Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done?

The crowed cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

And Pilate seeing that nothing avails, but rather that a tumult is rising, took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying:

I am innocent of the blood of this man: see you to it.

3rd Sorrowful mystery - tertium mysterium Dolorósa

Jesus is Crowned with Thorns - Iesus Spinis Coronatus

Matt 27:26-31

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the palace and brought together to him the whole band. Having stripped him they put on him a purple cloak, and having plaited a crown

of thorns they put it on his head,

and a reed in his right hand, and bowing the knee before him they mocked him, saying:

Hail, King of the Jews;

 

and having spit upon him they took the reed and struck upon his head.

And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the cloak and put his own garments on him and led him away to crucify him.

4th Sorrowful mystery - quartum mysterium Dolorósa

Jesus Carried the Cross - Iesus Crucem Portans

Joh 19:16-18, Luk 23:26-32

Then therefore Pilate delivered Jesus to the Chief Priests to be crucified.

 

As they led him away, they lay hold on Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country,

they laid the cross on him, that he might bear it after Jesus. …And bearing the cross, he went forth to Calvary, in Hebrew Golgotha.

 

There followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women that bewailed and lamented him.


Jesus turned to them and said:

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children;

for behold, there are coming days in which they shall say:

Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that did not give suck.

Then shall they begin to say to the mountains:

Fall on us,

and to the hills:

Cover us;

for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

 


And there were also two others, two evildoers, to be crucified with Jesus.


… they crucified Jesus,

and with him two others, one on each side,

and Jesus in the midst.

5th Sorrowful mystery - quintum mysterium Dolorósa

Crucificion of Jesus - Iesus Cruce Moritur

Luk 23:33-46, Mark 15:31-32

At Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers.

 Jesus said:

Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

The soldiers were dividing his clothing among them, they cast lots.

 

The people stood looking on; …In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said:

Others he saved, himself he cannot save.

Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.


here was also a superscription over him:

 THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS

 

And one of the evildoers that were hanged blasphemed him:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


But the other, answering, rebuked him and said:

Do not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art in the same condemnation? We indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of what we have done; but this man has done nothing evil.


Then he said to Jesus: 

Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.

 

Jesus said to him: I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise.
