May – the month of Mary

photo_2017-04-28_21-22-40Prayer

The recitation of the Rosary is not a matter of repeating formulas, but to enter into confidential conversation of Mary, to convey a feeling, to trust penalties, to open her heart and, finally, to accept the will of God.

Promises to the Blessed Alan de La Roche

  1. To all those who will say the Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and very great graces.
  2. Who perseveres to say the Rosary he will receive very precious graces.
  3. The Rosary is a powerful arm against hell; it will destroy vices, it will free from sin, it will dissipate heresies.
  4. The Rosary will make virtues and good works to flourish and it will grant the souls the most mercy of God; it will replace the vain love of the world with the love of God in the heart of the men, and will drive their desire up to the celestial and eternal goods.
  5. Who relies on me saying the Rosary, he will not be overwhelmed with adversities.
  6. Who says the Rosary devoutly and meditates the mysteries, he will not be punished by the justice of God, if he is sinner, he will be converted; the just will grow in the grace and he will become worthy of the eternal life.
  7. The truly devout people to my Rosary, in the time of their death, will not die without Sacraments.
  8. Those who say my Rosary will find the light of God and the fullness of His graces in their life and in the time of their death and will share the merits of the Blessed people in Heaven.
  9. Every day I will free from the Purgatory souls devout to my Rosary.
  10. The true sons of my Rosary will enjoy a great glory in heaven.
  11. You will obtain whatever you ask with my Rosary.
  12. I will help in their needs all those who spread my Rosary.
  13. I was grant by my Son that all people devout to the Rosary have the Saints of Heaven as brethren during their life and in the time of their death.
  14. Those who say my Rosary faithfully are all my beloved sons, brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ.

Triduum to St. Joseph to obtain a grace

“Whatever grace you demand to Saint Joseph it will certainly be granted, who wishes to believe be persuaded to do the test”.
St. Teresa of Avila

I.

O St. Joseph, my protector, I resort to you, so get me out of the Heart of Jesus this grace. For my sins I do not deserve to be heard. I beg you to my shortcomings and, as powerful as you are, that is obtained through your intercession the longed-for grace; I may come at your feet to thank you and make gifts of gratitude.
Our father, Ave Maria and Glory.

II.

Do not forget, dear St. Joseph that no person in the world resorted to you, being disappointed in the trust and the hope placed in you. Do not allow, or great saint, that I alone be deprived of the grace that I ask you. Shown powerful and generous even to me; and my tongue, thanking you, in you will enhance the goodness and mercy of God.
Our father, Ave Maria and Glory.

III.

O St. Joseph, head of the Holy Family, I will deeply revere and wholeheartedly invoke you. The afflicted, who prayed to you before me, you have given comfort and thanks,. Deign, therefore, to console also my grieved soul. Thou, Oh great Saint, see God in all my needs. You then, you know how much I needed the grace that I ask you. From Thee I hope to be comforted, and I promise to spread devotion to you and to help the works that, in your name, rise to the relief of so many unhappy and dying. O St. Joseph, comforter of the afflicted, have pity on me!
Our father, Ave Maria and Glory.

Supplication

Remember, Oh most pure spouse of Mary the Virgin, Oh sweet my patron St. Joseph, who never heard anyone have invoked your protection and asked for your help, without being consoled.
With this confidence, I come before thee, and I recommend it to you fervently.
Oh foster father of the Redeemer, despise not my petitions, but welcome it and pitifully her away. Amen
(Indulge. Partial)

Devotion and prayers to Saint Joseph.

 

The Miracolous Medal

https://i2.wp.com/digilander.libero.it/giardinoangeli/MedagliaMiracolosa/madonnamedagliamiracolosa.jpg

On 27th November 1830 in RUE DU BAC, in France, the Holy Virgin appears to one young novice of the Sisters of S. Vincent Dè Pauli, Sister Catherine Labourè.
Our Lady asks her to strike a medal, showing the vision that she is seeing and tells her:

“Have a medal struck according to this model; the persons who will wear it with confidence, will receive many graces!”

The medal of the Immaculate, struck in 1832, was called by the people Miraculous Medal for excellence, because of the great number of spiritual and material graces granted by intercession of Mary.

Many Saints have promoted its diffusion; of them Saint Maximian Kolbe has turned it into emblem of his Army of the Immaculate.

The devotion is very easy: you just need to wear it with faith and to invoke the Protection of the Virgin many times a day with the ejaculation:

“Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us applying to you”

This apparition has been approved by the Church and Sister Catherine Labuorè after a life spent in helping the poor of the hostel of Enghien, in Paris, was canonised by Pope Pius XII in 1947.

In order to obtain the Grace

  1. Immaculate Virgin of the Miraculous Medal, who, pity for our miseries, came down from Heaven to show us what attention you have for our pains and how much You endeavour to avoid us the punishments of God and to obtain His graces for us, help us in our present need and grant us the graces we are asking you.

    Hail Mary. Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us applying to You. (3 times)

  2. Immaculate Virgin, who gave us your Medal, as remedy to many spiritual and corporal evils afflicting us, as defence of the souls, medicine of the bodies and comfort of all the wretch, we clasp it on our heart grateful and by it we ask you to answer our prayer.

    Hail Mary. Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us applying to You. (3 times).

  3. Immaculate Virgin, who have promised great graces to all people devout to your Medal, if they invoked You with the ejaculation which You taught, we apply to You fully confidence in your word and we ask you, for your Immaculate Conception, for the grace we need.

    Ave Maria. O Maria concepita senza peccato, prega per noi che ricorriamo a Te.

    Hail Mary. Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us applying to You. (3 times)
