Sacred hear of Jesus and Immaculate heart of Mary
“Serve the Lord in fear, and exult in him with trembling.” (Psalm 2:11)
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of holiness is prudence.” (Proverbs 9:10)
“His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.” (Luke 1:50)
“For I have learnt for a fact that nothing so effectively obtains, retains, and regains grace, as that we should always be found not high-minded before God, but filled with holy fear.” -St. Bernard
“We must fear God out of love, not love him out of fear.” -St. Francis de Sales
Gift of Fear: Infused gift of the Holy Spirit that confirms the virtue of hope and inspires a person with profound respect for the majesty of God. Its corresponding effects are protection from sin through dread of offending the Lord, and a strong confidence in the power of his help. The fear of the Lord is not servile but filial. It is based on the selfless love of God, whom it shrinks from offending. Whereas in servile fear the evil dreaded is punishment; in filial fear it is the fear of doing anything contrary to the will of God. The gift of fear comprises three principal elements: a vivid sense of God’s greatness, a lively sorrow for the least faults committed, and a vigilant care in avoiding occasions of sin. It is expressed in prayer of the Psalmist, “My whole being trembles before you, your ruling fills me with fear” (Ps 119:120). One of its salutary effects is to induce a spirit of deep humility in dealing with others, especially with inferiors, since it makes a person aware that he or she stands constantly before the judgment of God. (Fr. John Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary)

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich revealed in her Visions that saints are particularly powerful on their feast days and shou

Prayer for Protection to
O Great and glorious patriarch St Joachim, how I rejoice to think that Thou wast chosen from among all the Saints to co-operate in the divine mysteries, and enrich the world by bestowing on it the great Mother of God, most holy Mary! By this singular privilege Thou hast become so powerful with the Mother and the Son as to obtain whatever graces may be necessary for us. With great confidence, then, I have recourse to Thy most powerful protection, and I commend to Thee all the wants of my family, both spiritual and temporal, as well as my own; and especially I appeal to Thee for the particular grace which I desire and expect from thy Paternal intercession. And since Thou wast a perfect model of the interior life, obtain for me interior recollection and a distaste for the fleeting goods of this earth, with a lively and persevering love of Jesus and Mary. Obtain for me, too, devotion and sincere obedience to Holy Church, and to the True Supreme Pontiff who governs Her, so that I may live and die in Faith, Hope, and perfect Charity, invoking the most holy names of Jesus and Mary, and may save my soul. Amen. Pater, Ave, Gloria, thrice.
(Indulgence: 300 days-Pope Leo XIII)
Prayer of Petition to St. Joachim
O Great patriarch St Joachim, by that singular privilege by which Thou wast chosen by Divine Providence to present to the world that Immaculate Queen in whom all nations should be blessed, and who should bear in her virginal bosom the salvation of the human race; we Thy devout clients rejoice with Thee over this beautiful privilege, and we implore Thy special protection for ourselves and our families. Do not allow, O dear Saint, the devil or sin to have any place in our souls, nor the perverse maxims of the world to seduce us, nor permit us to live unmindful of that eternity for which we have been created. Obtain for us from God a firm faith, unshaken by the impieties and errors which are scattered abroad by sects hostile to the Church and to the Apostolic See, a sincere and constant affection for the Vicar of Jesus Christ, the True Valid Roman Pontiff, a generous and indomitable courage in refuting the calumnies uttered against everything that is most sacred and revered in our Holy Religion. Thou who art powerful through the love which Thy Holy Daughter, Mary, bears Thee, help on the cause of the Church, obtain for Her the long-desired triumph, scatter the powers of darkness, humble their pride, and cause the light of truth and of the Faith to outshine every falsehood. Grant us, above everything, a tender and filial devotion to most holy Mary, Thy dear daughter and our Mother, so that daily honouring Her with devout homage we may deserve to be counted by Her among the happy company of Her children, and after the miseries of this exile to be brought by Her to Paradise, there to praise the mercies of God for ever. Amen. Pater, Ave, Gloria, thrice.
(Indulgence: 300 Days-Pope Leo XIII)
A Father’s Prayer to St. Joachim
Holy patron of my children, St. Joachim, take an interest in me their father; pray for me that through Thy intercession I may receive the grace that I may by word and example exercise a salutary influence over my children, and that they, by imitating Thy virtues, may grow to be Holy members of the Church and be received one day into Thy Happy Heavenly Company in Heaven. Amen. Hail Mary
A Prayer of a Father to the Guardian Angels of his Children
O holy guardian angels, ye heavenly friends of my children, full of confidence I turn to Thee. Those whom the Lord has entrusted to me He has also entrusted to Thy love and care. Obtain for me by Thy intercession, that animated with the same sentiment which animates Thee towards my children, I may do all things to bring them up for God and Heaven. O may I be such a father to them that I may be not unworthy of Thy love and friendship. Obtain this for me by Thy powerful intercession. Amen.
A Prayer to Preserve the Children from Mortal Sin
O God, how many and how great are the temptations to sin for my children in this world! And it is not in my power to lead them safely through them. Thou must assist and protect, Thou must rescue and lead to victory. Come then to my aid, O Lord, in the power of Thy grace, that the monster of mortal sin may not approach my children. Thou knowest, O Lord, how much I love my children; but I would rather that Thou shouldst take them from me by death than that by sin they should suffer the death of their souls and become an object of abomination and wrath to Thee. Therefore I beseech Thee, Thou Father of my children, haste to take them out of this life rather than that they should suffer this misfortune, so that by losing them during this short life I may find them again in Thy house and possess them forever with Thee. Hear me, O Lord, hear me; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Hail Mary.
A Prayer for Purity in Children
O most holy God, who lovest purity and innocence, grant my children the precious gift of purity. Alas, if the vice of impurity should soil my children, how unhappy would they be for time and eternity. Lord, protect them; keep far from them this terrible misfortune! Without Thy special grace they cannot preserve holy purity. O Lord, grant them this grace! May their hearts be as a sanctuary undefiled by any impure thoughts and sentiments; may their eyes be modest, their ears and mouth closed to any impropriety in word or conversation; fill them with horror for everything contrary to purity, and let them, unblemished in body and soul, continue to be temples consecrated to the Holy Ghost.
O Lord, Thou lover of pure souls, let my children be numbered among Thy beloved ones; let that blessing which in time and eternity accompanies holy purity come to my children.
Immaculate Mother, thou model and intercessor of pure souls; St. Joseph, St. Aloysius, and all holy youths, virgins, and saintly children, help me by your intercession. Amen.
A Father’s Prayer for Blessings on his Work
O God, all that I may do for the proper education of my children will not bear fruit without the blessing of Thy grace. Although I may “plant and water,” the ” increase” will be wanting if Thou dost not “give” it. ” Except the Lord build the house,” says the Psalmist, ” they labor in vain who build it. Except the Lord keep the city he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.” Therefore I beseech Thee, O Lord, give “the increase” to all that I do for my children by teaching, admonition, warning, punishment, vigilance and direction; assist me to “keep” them from all evil of body and soul; assist me to ” build” that the “house” of virtue and perfection will have in them a firm foundation. Accompany my words and works with Thy grace that they may conduce to the welfare of my children, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

+J.M.J.+ This is a talk given by Fr. Michael Rodríguez on October 6, 2017, in observance of the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (Oct. 7th) and the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun (Oct. 13th). The talk covers three main themes: A Terrible Crisis in the Papacy, the Letter of Filial Correction, and the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions.
Fr. Rodríguez makes an urgent plea to all of the world’s Catholics, especially those who are not familiar with the Traditional Latin Mass, but do have a sincere desire to be good and faithful Catholics.
Fr. Rodríguez explains three great signs which God is giving us, thereby calling us to convert back to Him and to the true Catholic religion of 2000 years. These three signs from Heaven are: (1) the frightening crisis in the Papacy, (2) the historic “Letter of Filial Correction” and (3) the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun.
Fr. Rodríguez is one of the signatories of the Letter of Filial Correction of Pope Francis. Fr. Rodríguez explains both the Letter of Filial Correction, and how faithful Catholics must respond to the present, nearly unprecedented, crisis in the Papacy. He concludes with a brief teaching on the Message of Our Lady of Fatima.
This is a must see video for all Catholics who desire to be faithful to God and the Church in the midst of a terrible crisis in the papacy.
Here is a petition which all can sign in support of the filial correction, linked here:

Danny and Katrina

Help Dan Fight the Good Fight

14 years ago, Dan gave the kidney that saved his  brother’s life. A year and a half ago, Dan was struck down by MGN, a disease that attacked his remaining kidney. After many hospital stays, treatments and a near-miss with death, the doctors couldn’t save his remaining kidney and it recently had to be removed.
He continues to endure dialysis 3 times a week.
The organ transplant doctors say another surgery is required before they will consider a transplant. Dan and his loving wife, Katrina, have a long row to hoe.

Their loss of income has been devastating. They have burned through their savings, maxed out credit cards and were forced to drain their retirement accounts.
I recently learned about GFM and now, I’m honored to have this opportunity to help my friend. This campaign is the best way to help relieve Dan and Katrina’s heavy burden as they struggle through this terribly stressful time.

For the 37 years I’ve known Dan, he has been a rock in my life. He gives 110% to his wife and kids, his family and friends, his career and his musical endeavors. Yes, Dan happens to be one of the greatest drummers around and one of the very best I’ve ever had the honor of playing with. His musical abilities are extensive and his experience is vast. From touring Tribute bands to Symphony Orchestras, Dan has done it all.

Dan served in the Air Force and, over the years, continued to serve his church and the community in many ways. He has always given so much of himself for no other reason than it is simply his calling to lift others up. It’s our turn now to recognize his need and lift him up. I don’t know anyone more deserving.

When you meet Dan, you know you’ve met someone extraordinary, intelligent, and compassionate with an endless depth of character and integrity. One of the things I love most about Dan is his unyielding sense of humor. Even through these tough times, it remains in defiance of the odds. But above all, his faith in God’s will remains unbreakable.

I humbly ask you to consider helping Dan and his family get through the most difficult time of their lives. Your thoughts, prayers and donations will help Dan get through his next surgery and on to a new kidney and a new beginning. The world is a better place with Dan in it. + Read More

Prayer of the Novena of the Immaculate ConceptionHeart of Mary, Refuge of Sinners, pray for us Bouasse Lebel

Immaculate Virgin Mary, you were pleasing in the sight of God from the first moment of your conception in the womb of your mother, St. Anne. You were chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe the teaching of holy Mother the Church, that in the first instant of your conception, by the singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race and beloved Son, you were preserved from all stain of original sin. I thank God for this wonderful privilege and grace he bestowed upon you as I honor your…

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
