Hello Church Militant...
I hope all are well. There is so much going on in the world, the Church, and locally around us that it can truly be disheartening! We need a strong faith and to remain strong in that faith that God is always in charge and that He allows all and can make good of all things.
I am going to post on the "Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary" link on this website weekly to help all of us through this Consecration Preparation which will be May 31 - The Queenship of Mary (Traditional date). Please consider this as we enter into some of the darkest days we have ever experienced.
I have helped people through this Consecration for a number of years and there is always the question....I have missed the prayers yesterday...should I stop and start again for another Consecration date. God's time is not like ours...please continue. Do the missed reading when you can and just keep going with a loving and giving heart. Perseverance is better than stopping - unless you are convinced this is not for you right now. I wish it was right for everyone because we need Our Lady's help now more than ever! Remember that Our Lady told St. Dominic that .."One day through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world." This seems like it fits our day today. Also, St. Louis de Montfort stated that only those devoted to Our Lady will persevere in the end times. This also seems to fit our day today.
NOW IS THE TIME TO CONSIDER THIS SERIOUSLY....
Please go to the "Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary" link on this site to begin tomorrow.
Also - I am reading "I Am a Daughter of the Church"...please look for a new post for this coming SOON. We have finished "I Want To See God" and never went into the next book written by Blessed Father Marie-Eugene. I hope to post the review of the first chapter.
Also, I am posting a link below on "We Now Live in a Communist Society" talk. It is very insightful and keeps us aware of the need to be true soldiers of Christ through the prayers and intercession of Mary.
Take care everyone and May Our Lady Help of Christians help all of us!
Hello Church Militant:
I am changing my greeting on my posts because we all need to realize right from the start that we are in battle! I tell my grown kids...as soon as you put your feet on the ground from your bed in the morning...know you are entering the battlefield. This is a war over souls...it always has been and will be until the end of time on this earth. Just the hard facts ...especially for Americans with so much "freedom" which is now being stripped away inch by inch but very quickly.
It is always wise to know history; both Church history and world history. We can see the same tactics being used for the destruction of God-given freedom to love Him. This is allowed by God Himself because we have squandered or abused our time and freedom for things outside of God. If we do not love Him above all things...we will be chastised....it is only just. God is Love! He will always come to our aid...but the condition is our humility to turn to Him. Do we have that humility?
My post today is regarding the battle against the Mass. The Mass is the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. Why wouldn't the devil attack it? It is the means of grace for all souls in the world. Padre Pio said that if we lose the Mass, it is like the earth losing the sun...we will not survive. Satan knows this and his cohorts have been working against the Mass for centuries. If you have time...I encourage the study of Church history. We have had this battle a long time! Saints have lost their lives defending the Holy Mass.
Below are some links referencing the damage being done by Pope Francis and his Jesuit brothers. One target is to attack monasteries and convents which celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass. There are a couple of links referencing this attack below.
May we pray to Our Lady to intercede for us in being able to find refuge in the Mass even if we have to go underground in the very near future.
ALSO...I am going to be posting weekly again the info to help with the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary for April 28th (Feast of St. Louis de Montfort) thru the Queenship of Mary which is May 31. Please locate your books if you would like to join us in this. You will need: Your Bible, True Devotion to Mary, Imitation of Christ, and 33 Day Preparation. I will give talks preceding each week to prepare for what each week will entail.
May Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament intercede for the Church! God bless!!
Remember the efficacy of the Rosary...please pray it daily and more than once.....
I pray you had a Blessed Easter Day and that you have a holy Easter season. We are still in the Easter season and I felt compelled to write this post. My title is to emphasize that still today, many place material goods over Jesus. Yes, He is Risen! Yet... we have misplaced Him in our lives and in our hearts...He has not been given first priority in our decisions and in our lives.
God is allowing so much to happen to us and to the world right now that is a form of a chastisement. We are not putting God first in our lives and we are trusting in man instead. Many are running to this "new science technology"....untested and unproven and never used on humans before. WOW- seriously ... for a virus that can be treated and recovery rates are high! Critical thinking skills are extinct!
I have some family members and friends that have been duped by the lockdowns and "want freedom back". One young man; a senior in high school, took it and is now suffering with a debilitating disease that may never go away.....why... because he wanted to travel...he is going nowhere now and will miss graduation ceremonies. Big Pharma and Government are betraying the people for 30 pieces of silver.
Our Pope Francis is said to get "millions" from China to remain quiet about their killing practices there. Radio Free Asia’s latest revelations follow weeks of reports of heightened attacks on Christians in China. Since February, the Chinese government has introduced militant bans on “house churches,” mass arrests of bible study groups, new demolitions of Catholic shrines, and a centralized surveillance system for clergy. Human rights organizations and hundreds of Chinese Christian leaders have called the ongoing persecution the worst affront to religious liberty in the country since the Cultural Revolution. (Make no mistake....the globalists will spread this to the world)
Beijing’s crackdown on religious groups also has extended to the largely Muslim ethnic Uighurs in the Xinjiang province of China. The Chinese government has interned up to three million Uighurs across hundreds of detention camps, killing some prisoners and forcing others to undergo abortions.....Silence by our Pope and the media for 30 pieces of silver.
We have seen so much betrayal in our own country. A stolen election with true evidence that will not be looked at by our Supreme Court or Congress (could it be bribes and threats....more silver coins to betray the American people) Now we are seeing before our eyes the complete destruction of America...piece by piece. The borders are wide open for anyone to come in ... could foreign soldiers be getting set up for a complete takeover? Again,,, for 30 pieces of silver.
I have put a couple of links with warnings for America's future if we do not pray and repent of the abortions, the sex trafficking, the pornography industry, the divorce, the child abuses, and the biggest sin of all..... abandoning God. Pray and get prepared physically and spiritually. There are signs all around us that the hour glass is almost empty.
I have also put links for Consecration prayers....critical for this hour. May the Hearts of Jesus and Mary be our refuge and our hope. God bless!
Bonus link below on the plan to bring about this plandemic and vaccine....
Today is one of my favorite Holy Days--- Holy Thursday. Jesus gives us the great gifts of the Holy Priesthood and Himself in the Holy Eucharist...these great gifts to help us through our journey to Himself in Heaven.
Please try to be present in the Churches tonight to be with Our Lord in His Agony in the Garden. If any Christian knew what it was to be a Christian...we would not be away from Our Lord this night. Let us not fall asleep nor run in fear...let us give Him our love, attention and reparation for the sins being committed today.
A means of reparation and a very powerful and great devotion during these days of great evil is the devotion to the Most Holy Face of Jesus. I have found some info I will share below of this great devotion. I have posted about this previously but it needs to be brought to our memory that to have a devotion to His Most Holy Face is very pleasing to the Eternal Father and it is very powerful to combat Satan and the communism we are seeing before our eyes engulf the world. As you read this info below...you will see how relevant this is today which means we need reparation. If we have not already, let us make reparation using the Golden Arrow Prayer and prayers honoring the Most Holy Face of Jesus, especially during this Holy Week and Easter season.
Here is some info... Have a Blessed Holy Week... I will not post on Good Friday.. This will suffice.. May we keep each other in prayer!!
DEVOTION TO THE MOST HOLY FACE OF JESUS
Almost one hundred and eighty years ago, Our Lord appeared to a humble cloistered sister of the Carmelite community of Tours, France, Sister Marie St. Peter. This convent was specifically chosen by God to spread devotion to the Holy Face since the Reverend Mother had made a special vow promising God that for a whole year two of the religious in her community would offer their Communions for the special intention that the designs of the Sacred Heart should be accomplished. Through Sr. Marie St. Peter, the world would one day come to know that the designs of the Sacred Heart were to be accomplished through “The Work of Reparation.”
What is meant by “The Work of Reparation”?
On August 26, 1843, a terrible storm raged outside of Sr. Marie St. Peter’s monastery. She could not help but think that God was showing His anger for the sins of the world. She asked God if she was imagining this feeling or that in fact, she was feeling His wrath. She began to pray asking for God’s mercy. In her prayer, she offered Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Heavenly Father in expiation for her sins and the needs of the Church -reminding Him of His sacrifice for us.
Heaven answered her question in this way. Our Lord spoke to her interiorly: “My Name is everywhere blasphemed! There are even children who blaspheme!” Our Lord said, as well, that only Reparation could disarm the Justice of God because the guilt of men had provoked His anger.
Sr. Marie St. Peter writes in her autobiography about the remedy for blasphemy, “The Golden Arrow”:
“Our Lord made me visualize the act of blasphemy as a poisoned arrow continually wounding His Divine Heart. After that He revealed to me that He wanted to give me a ‘Golden Arrow’ which would have the power of wounding Him delightfully, and which would also heal those other wounds inflicted by the malice of sinners. The following is the formula of the ‘Golden Arrow’ which is an Act of Praise that our Lord Himself dictated to me, notwithstanding my unworthiness, for the reparation of blasphemy against His Holy Name.”
The Golden Arrow Prayer
(Prayer to be recited before the Blessed Sacrament or an image of the Holy Face)
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and ineffable Name of God be forever praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on Earth, and under the Earth by all the creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.
Over the course of several years Our Lord would speak to Sr. Marie and educate her on the many ways He has been offended. Blasphemy was mentioned first, however, the profanation of Sundays and feast days was next on the list. This grieved Him very much! Reparation was therefore needed for all types of the attacks against the Catholic Faith and the Holy Church, since these also constitute a form of blasphemy.” It appears Heaven was asking through this “Work of Reparation” restitution for heretical attacks against the Church which are so numerous and vicious in these times.
On February 2, 1844, Our Lord asked that a militia be formed, of which He would be the commander-in-chief, to fight with the arms of His cross against the enemies of the Holy Name of God. This militia would be known as “The Defenders of God's Holy Name.” Our Lord lamented:
“…my friends and my faithful children! Behold if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow! My Divine Father and My cherished spouse, the Holy Church, are despised, outraged by my enemies. Will no one rise up to revenge me by defending them against those enemies? I can no longer remain in the midst of an ungrateful people: behold the torrents of tears that flow from my eyes! Can I find no one to dry them, by making reparation of honor to the glory of My Father, begging of Him the conversion of the guilty?”
In March 1844, Our Lord told Sister Marie, "Oh, if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once, 'Admirable is the name of God', in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy!"
On October 27th, 1845, Our Lord spoke to Sr. Marie:
“I seek Veronicas to wipe and venerate My Divine Face which has but few adorers…To you I give My Holy Face as a recompense for the services you have performed for Me… I offer you this gift of My Holy Countenance …By My Holy Face you will work wonders!” Jesus made her understand that all those who devoted themselves to this work of Reparation, would perform the same office as Veronica.
On October 4th, 1846, Sr. Marie was given to know that in the future, “God’s justice would use as the instrument of punishment, ‘the malice of revolutionary men-that is the Communists’.” This was the first revelation from Heaven concerning Communism. It is interesting to note that Communism was still at its beginning stages at this time, and that Karl Marx had not even published his “Communist Manifesto” until 1848, and these Revolutionaries were not even calling themselves “Communists” in 1846. Our Lord ordered Sr. Marie to wage war against the enemies of the Church, the Communists, through prayers and devotion to His Holy Face and the instruments of His Passion which would be her only weapons against them and the devil himself. Thus, Devotion to the Holy Face is a sister devotion to Fatima.
On Holy Thursday, April 1848, Our Lord told Sr. Marie: " … it is the Communists who have dragged me from my tabernacles, profaned and despoiled my sanctuaries, and have even dared to raise their hands against the anointed of the Lord, but their designs shall be frustrated. Have they not committed the crime of Judas! Have they not sold me for silver!”
Sr. Marie St. Peter was struck to the heart and all she could think of was making reparation for these sacrilegious outrages, which Christ had so forcibly reminded her. Some days after she wrote: " I have entered the arena to combat the enemies of God… Today after Holy Communion, He encouraged me to the combat and pledged himself to give me a cross of honor, which would open Heaven to me, if I were faithful. …May His Holy Name be blessed!
Our Lord demonstrated to Sr. Marie that one of the most effective prayer verses from the Bible and one which also St. Athanasius said the devils hate more than any other verse “Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His Face…” This verse always induces the devil to take flight. It is so effective that it is used in the official exorcism prayers of the Church. This verse can be prayed in chaplet form.
Christ explained to this lowly Carmelite sister that she was to be given a new “mission of the Work of Reparation for Blasphemy.”
In closing let us study how this mission is meant to be understood with the words of Sr. Marie St. Peter: “Our Lord here means the work in reparation for blasphemy, to be offered through the merits of His dolorous Face….in our time, the spirit of evil, armed with pride and sensuality, has inflicted on society two wounds of such magnitude as have hitherto been unknown; deep-rooted impiety and absolute disbelief are the two loathsome wounds of modern society, [generated by Atheistic Communism] which corrode all that is most sacred. To combat this strange and satanical scourge and to expiate the abominations …[He] offers us His Holy Face, this portion of His Sacred Humanity in which are reflected, both the thoughts of His mind and the affections of His Heart… He demands, therefore, a new work whose object is to repair these crimes of modern society. The Reparation is intimately allied to the great Work of the Redemption and is in reality the most noble and the most necessary work for our times.”
It seems as though Our Lord Himself requested that this devotion be the definitive weapon to combat Communism!
PROMISES OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
Revelations to Sr. Marie St. Peter, Discalced Carmelite Nun of Tours, France, in favor of those who honor His Holy Face. Details of these revelations are found in the book named The Golden Arrow (the autobiography of Sister Mary of St. Peter):
Bernadette Porter is a Traditional Catholic, a wife of 41 years with 6 adult home-schooled children and 5 grandchildren. A sincere devotion to Mary, the Mother of God leads me to want to share "The Church's best kept secret" - Mary!
