Prayer For The Persecuted Church

Blessed Lord, have mercy on all those persecuted and imprisoned for their faith in oppressive regimes;  Accept their sufferings in reparation for the sins of all the world;

Enlighten with Thy LOVE the souls of the persecutors that they may see the evil of their ways;

We pray also for the confused, the uncertain; those who compromise; for the false shepherds;

Free us, in the West, from the sins of indifference, selfishness and fear;

That Thy sacrifice on Calvary may become more real for us each day.

Amen.

Prayer Of Priests

To live in the midst of the world without craving its pleasures; to be a member of every family yet confined to none; to share all sufferings; to be trusted custodianth-1 of all secrets; to heal all wounds; to go from men to God and offer Him their prayers; to return from God to man and bring pardon and hope; to have a heart of fire for charity and a will of bronze for vows; to teach and pardon, to console and bless always!

What a Christlike life!- and it is yours O priest of God!

-Pere Lacordaire, O.P.

Grateful Easter

We are grateful that our numerous hacking attacks seem to be over.  We unite all of this suffering to the sacrifice of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered this day and every day until the end of time.

We pray for all the victims of torture around the world and join with the chorus of martyrs who this week and in these days give their lives in surety of HEAVEN by proclaiming their faith in the Risen Lord.  They have remained faithful till the end and are reigning now with Christ in glory everlasting.

Queen of Heaven, rejoice, Alleluia, For He Whom you did merit to bear, Alleluia, Has risen as He said, Alleluia!  Pray for us to God, Alleluia!

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia

For the Lord is truly risen, Alleluia!

O God, Who gave joy to the world through the Resurrection of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life.  Through the same Christ, Our Lord.  Amen.

Hacking and Breaching News

Dearly Beloved,

This site and that of Catholics Against Torture: catholicsagainsttorture.org have been hacked into in the last few days.  Mischief was done and files raided.  We believe this was a spiritual attack.  We offer this sacrifice to God through the sufferings of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Many thank yous go to our webmaster, who is amazing in his expertise and acumen.

In the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Jamie

Holy Week Hacking

Dear Beloved In Christ,

Our sites have been hacked into by only God knows who, therefore much of our images and messages have been lost.  Thank the good Lord for our webmaster who remedied the situation quickly.  We have reason to believe this could have been a form of persecution, especially coming during Holy Week.  Praise to Our Crucified Saviour!

In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ,

Fr. St. Anthony

Palm Sunday- The Donkey

When fishes flew and forests walked

And figs grew upon thorn,

Some moment when the moon was blood

Then surely I was born.

With monstrous head and sickening cry

And ears like errant wings,

The devil’s walking parody

Of all four-footed things.

The tatter’d outlaw of the earth

Of ancient crooked will

Starve, scourge, deride me, I am dumb

I keep my secret still.

Fools!  Far off wise and proud- I also had my hour;

One far fierce hour and sweet:

When there were shouts about my ears,

And palms beneath my feet!

-G.K. Chesterton

Great Saint Joseph

Oh, Glorious Saint Joseph, Faithful Guardian of Jesus Christ, to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy powerful intercession in obtaining for us from the HEART OF JESUS all the help and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death and the special favors we now implore...(Make your request known.)

Oh, Foster Father of the WORD INCARNATE and chaste Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we are animated with confidence that thy prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard before the THRONE OF GOD.

We ask this of the FATHER, in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, in the LOVE OF THE HOLY GHOST and with confidence in the Communion of Saints.

AMEN AND AMEN.

Good Saint Pat

Good Saint Pat in days of yore

Stood stalwart on the Irish shore

And drove all snakes from Eire’s green sod

And did so by the power of God!

How wonderful and grand ‘twould be

If God would raise a saint from we

Who from the Church and state would drive

All snake and vermin now alive

Into the sea- I’d voice a hymn

If I could see one bishop swim!

-Fr. Jamie St. Anthony

Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart

Dear Brethren in Christ,

Please be so kind as to pray for a 17 month old baby boy who is in hospital.  His name is MICHAEL FERCHAK and he needs a healing.  Remember that Our Blessed Saviour told us that the Guardian Angels of children behold the Face 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 we fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, Our Mother.  To thee do we come; before thee we kneel sinful and sorrowful.  O, Thou Mother of the WORD INCARNATE, despise not our petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer our prayer.  AMEN.
