“An ancient prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and in fact, the oldest known prayer to Our Lady for intercession. The oldest known version of which is found on an Egyptian papyrus from the 3rd century. This prayer is used in Litanies to the Blessed Mother and as a concluding prayer to Compline. A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite it.

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus,
Sancta Dei Genetrix.
Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus,
sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper,
Virgo gloriosa et benedicta.
Amen.

We fly to thy patronage,
O holy Mother of God;
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.”

Dail-EXORCISTS.jpg

Duccio di Buoninsegna, “The Temptation of Christ,” c. 1310

We are asking all of those who participate to do the following for this intention:

1.) say the Rosary;
2.) take on some form of penance, such as fasting, abstinence and other forms of mortification;
3.) to offer the prayers to the Sacred Heart, as seen below.
Other recommended acts which we encourage others to do for this intention is make a Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament and attend Mass that day, offering the merits of the Mass for this intention.
May the Divine Mercy rest upon all of us.

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thy altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but, to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.
Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof; call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.
Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism; refuse not to draw them all into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.
Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and Honor forever. Amen.

Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O sweet Jesus, Whose overflowing charity for men is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence and contempt, behold us prostrate before Thy altar eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries, to which Thy loving Heart is everywhere subject.
Mindful alas! that we ourselves have had a share in such great indignities, which we now deplore from the depths of our hearts, we humbly ask Thy pardon and declare our readiness to atone by voluntary expiation not only for our own personal offenses, but also for the sins of those, who, straying far from the path of salvation, refuse in their obstinate infidelity to follow Thee, their Shepherd and Leader, or, renouncing the vows of their baptism, have cast off the sweet yoke of Thy Law.
We are now resolved to expiate each and every deplorable outrage committed against Thee; we are determined to make amends for the manifold offenses against Christian modesty in unbecoming dress and behavior, for all the foul seductions laid to ensnare the feet of the innocent, for the frequent violations of Sundays and holidays, and the shocking blasphemies uttered against Thee and Thy Saints.
We wish also to make amends for the insults to which Thy Vicar on earth and Thy priests are subjected, for the profanation, by conscious neglect or terrible acts of sacrilege, of the very Sacrament of Thy Divine Love; and lastly for the public crimes of nations who resist the rights and teaching authority of the Church which Thou hast founded.
Would, O divine Jesus, we were able to wash away such abominations with our blood. We now offer, in reparation for these violations of Thy divine honor, the satisfaction Thou didst once make to Thy eternal Father on the cross and which Thou dost continue to renews daily on our altars; we offer it in union with the acts of atonement of Thy Virgin Mother and all the Saints and of the pious faithful on earth; and we sincerely promise to make recompense, as far as we can with the help of Thy grace, for all neglect of Thy great love and for the sins we and others have committed in the past. Henceforth we will live a life of unwavering faith, of purity of conduct, of perfect observance of the precepts of the gospel and especially that of charity. We promise to the best of our power to prevent other from offending Thee and to bring as many as possible to follow Thee.
O loving Jesus, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our model in reparation, deign to receive the voluntary offering we make of this act of expiation; and by the crowning gift of perseverance keep us faithful unto death in our duty and the allegiance we owe to Thee, so that we may one day come to that happy home, where Thou with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen.

WE’RE GOING IN!!
“When people say the Rosary together, it is far more formidable to the devil, than one said privately. Because in this public prayer, it is an army that is attacking him. He can often overcome the prayer of an individual, but if this prayer is joined to other Christians, the devil has much more trouble in getting the best of it.” -St Louis de Montfort.
On this Feast of St. Benedict, we are calling all “believing” Catholics to join in a powerful campaign of spiritual warfare, entitled, “Novena for Our Nation” (August 15 to October 7).The United States Grace Force has grown to nearly 50,000 special forces prayer warriors, and we want to get larger and stronger!!

Prayer for the Reconciliation of Protestants and other Self-proclaimed Bible experts…

Almighty Father, Creator of Heaven, Earth, and all that dwells within both realms, we, the faithful lament the loss of our brothers and sisters in Christ from full commuion in His Church. Thus we pray with open minds, outstretched arms, and sorrowful hearts that our fellow Christians may experience reconciliation with the Holy Church. We pray for the souls of Martin Luther, John Calvin, and all Protestant leaders who denied Your Church. We pray for not only the spirits of our Catholic brethren, but for all Christians who have passed from this world. Lord God, Most Understanding and Merciful, your only Son was condemned to agonizing death at the hands of evil men so that we may be delivered into eternal life. Let not schism and suspicion taint Your servants. Instead, allow us to celebrate Your appointed Mass as one joyful Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Amen.

Retreat House

The retreat house, originally built c.1709, was enlarged over many generations preserving within its walls pre-Revolutionary, Federal, neo-Classical and Victorian architectural elements.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the house was recently featured in the New York Times column, “Great Homes and Designations“.

FAQs

How long are the retreats?

Three to five days from Friday morning or evening through Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday morning or afternoon.  We will confirm the days of your retreat by telephone (815)793-7465.  Leave a voicemail for a reply.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email: FatherTomSays@gmail or call (815) 793-7465 ( Be sure to leave a message for a return call ).

What is the retreat schedule?

Our retreats begin with Morning Mass. Our group activities include the readings and our discussions of the Church’s ancient tradition of the Office of the Hours three times daily, morning, mid-day and mid-afternoon. At other times we maintain silence during the day except for ordinary conversation during meals. For those interested we will have daily classes on gardening, nutrition and making sourdough bread.  Much of our gardening provides the food for our meals. At other times during the day you may do as you please, take a hike or walk our wooded farmland area, read or whatever suits you.

My phone number (815) 793-7465 does not accept “unknown callers”. You would have to email me at FatherTomSays@gmail.com with your phone number so I may include you in my contact list. Cell phones are not permitted in the retreat house and may be left in your car or with the retreat director until the end of your retreat. The retreat house may be called with any emergency.

Nothing or a good-will donation as you choose.  “Freely you received and freely you should offer”, as Jesus instructed his Apostles ( Matthew 10:8 ). Your retreat will include a private guest bedroom, meals and other amenities associated with a hotel stay ( except, of course, room service–its a retreat, after all ).

Other questions or requests

Email or call.  You may have to leave a voicemail which I will return.

Final Note

Christian, Catholic Individual and Family Retreats

         The Associations of Families for Families is a work of continual assistance, personal, individual and family.

Our Christian principles are derived from Pope Saint John Paul II’s Exhortation, Familiaris Consortio,  ( the Community of Family ).  Our mission identifies its work with the ten principles or guidelines recommended by Pope John Paul II for the fulfillment of individual and families’ lives set out in the monastic-style retreats we offer families and individuals.

We identify ourselves in the community of a Church alive in Jesus Christ and in the assistance we provide individuals and families desiring a better understanding of themselves, their families and their relationships with God and each other. We are dedicated to the daily practice of the ancient tradition of the Church’s Liturgy of the Office of the Hours” and the retreats we offer.
