We practiced the simple virtues of family life,
Jesus our Son being the center of all our love and activity.
The Holy Trinity dwelt with us
in a manner far surpassing anything that can ever be imagined.
For ours was the earthly paradise
where once again God walked among men."…
“The Divine Trinity will dwell in your midst

who look to you for help and guidance."

you asked that the youth of our nation
be the leaders of a movement of renewal
on the face of the earth.
You asked that they be prepared by instilling into them,
not only the knowledge of the Divine Indwelling,
but a serious study of it,

as it were an intimate and necessary part of their life and daily living.
From this will flow a great love,
a conflagration that will envelop the world
in the flames of Divine Charity."
Please intercede for us

will receive the grace of intense purity of heart
and the particular love of the Holy Virgin and her Divine Son."
You also said,
‘Sinners will receive the grace of repentance
and the spiritual strength to live as true children of Mary.
As in life, so in death,
this blessed medal will be as a shield to protect them
against the evil spirits,
and St. Michael himself will be at their side
to allay their fears at the final hour."
Please intercede for us
that we may be granted this grace
and morally good leaders who will act
according to the revealed will of God

Prayer of Sister Mildred to Our Lady of America
O Immaculate Mother, Queen of our Country,
open our hearts, our homes,
and our Land to the coming of Jesus, your Divine Son.
With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady,
so pure and so bright
with the radiance of God’s light shining in and about you.
Be our Leader against the powers of evil
set upon wresting the world of souls,
redeemed at such a great cost
by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself,
in union with Him, from that same Savior,
Who loves us with infinite charity.
We gather about you, O chaste and holy Mother,
Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land,
determined to fight under your banner of holy purity
against the wickedness that would make all the world an abyss of evil,
without God and without your loving maternal care.
We consecrate our hearts, our homes,
our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen,
that the kingdom of your Son,
our Redeemer and our God,
may be firmly established in us.
We ask no special sign of you, sweet Mother,
for we believe in your great love for us,
and we place in you our entire confidence.
We promise to honor you by faith, love,
and the purity of our lives according to your desire.
Reign over us, then, O Virgin Immaculate,
with your Son Jesus Christ.
May His Divine Heart and your most chaste Heart
be ever enthroned and glorified among us.
Use us, your children of America,
as your instruments in bringing peace among men and nations.
Work your miracles of grace in us,
so that we may be a glory to the Blessed Trinity,
Who created, redeemed, and sanctifies us.
May your valiant Spouse, St. Joseph,
with the holy Angels and Saints,
assist you and us in “renewing the face of the earth."
Then when our work is over,
come, Holy Immaculate Mother,
and as our Victorious Queen,
lead us to the eternal kingdom,
where your Son reigns forever as King.
Amen.
Our Father…
Hail Mary… and
Glory Be…
By thy holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary,
deliver us from evil!

St. Michael God's Knight Digital Holy Card: A PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS

Digital Holy Card: A PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS






Our Lady and Mother, see how evil is invading everything: hearts, families, society, our Country.

Children no longer walk on the path of innocence. The youth, caught up in worldly pastimes, no longer come before thy altar to ask thy maternal blessings; nor do they seek the light of thy gaze to dissipate the shadows of doubt the world instills unceasingly.

Mothers are forgetting that the home is the first school where good is taught, and they are the first teachers. Family life today has deteriorated, and the sound of the call to prayer is rarely heard.

In the schools there is no prayer, nor are thy grandeurs sung. In the home, few still believe in Holy Providence which has counted all the hairs on our heads and the sufferings of our hearts, and few have recourse to the merciful assistance of thy maternal heart.

In these hours, our Country is the poor traveler of the Gospel who fell into the hands of thieves, riddled with wounds that are almost mortal, without the relief of any human hope.

My sweet Mother, take care of these abandoned children who are lost because they have nothing in life. Protect the youth so that these tender plants are not swallowed up in the poisonous muck of vice.

Teach mothers the divine gift of being mothers and their duty to model the hearts of their children at the cost of any sacrifice, of saving them with the mysterious supplication of their tears.


If you do not come to the assistance of this agonizing Country, the remnants of Christendom will disappear. Your heart is an abyss of ineffable tenderness. Let a drop of balm fall upon its wound and it will live... Amen.

Digital Holy Card: Prayers to the Blessed Virgin for Every Wednesday



MOTHER of God, most holy Mary, how often by my sins have I merited hell! Long ago, perhaps, judgment would have gone forth against my first mortal sin, hadst thou not, in thy tender pity, delayed the justice of God, and afterward attracted me by thy sweetness to have confidence in thy prayers. And oh, how very often should I have fallen in the dangers which beset my steps hadst thou not, loving Mother that thou art, preserved me by the grace thou didst obtain for me by thy prayers. But, my Queen, what will thy pity and favors avail me, if after all I perish in the flames of hell?
If there was once a time when I loved thee not, now, next to God, I love thee before all. Wherefore, henceforth and forever, let me not turn my back upon thee and upon my God, who through thee hast granted me so many mercies.
O Lady, most worthy of all love, let it not be I thy child, should be doomed to hate and to curse thee forever in hell. Thou wilt surely never permit thy servant to be lost who loves thee. O Mary, say not that I ever can be lost! Yet lost I shall assuredly be if I abandon thee. But who could ever have the heart to leave thee? Who can ever forget thy love? No, it is impossible for that man to perish who faithfully recommends himself to thee and has recourse to thee. Only leave me not, my Mother, in my own hands, or I am lost! Let me but cling to thee! Save me, my hope! Save me from hell; or, rather, save me from sin, which alone can condemn me to hell. Amen.

St. Gabriel God's Muse: Digital Holy Card Prayer For the Intersession of St. Gabriel





O Blessed Archangel Gabriel,
we beseech thee,
do thou intercede for us
at the throne of Divine Mercy
in our present necessities,
that as thou didst announce to Mary
the mystery of the Incarnation,
so through thy prayers
and patronage in heaven
we may obtain the benefits of the same,
and sing the praise of God forever
in the land of the living.
