Thomas A. Droleskey
Today, this very day, Tuesday, May 24, 2011, the halfway point between my fifty-ninth and sixtieth birthdays, could be doomsday for me. It could be doomsday for you. It could be doomsday for one of our relatives or friends or associates. And it is the simple realization that this very day could be our last, that we could face Christ the King at the moment of the Particular Judgment today, that must be uppermost in our thoughts and prayers, especially when we meditate upon the Four Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell) each night after we make our Examen of Conscience before shutting our eyes for however much or little sleep that is within God's Providence to obtain given the circumstances of the day and the duties of our state-in-life.
We do not need to be concerned with predicting when Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will return in glory with all of the angels and the saints on the Last Day. It is enough for us to recognize that the end of our own individual "worlds" could end as suddenly as it did for those in Joplin, Missouri, who died so suddenly and unexpectedly on the Fourth Sunday after Easter, May 22, 2011, in the single most deadly tornadic episode to occur in the United States of America in the past fifty-eight years. It is enough for us to be detached from the people, the things and the places of this passing, moral vale of tears, which is not our permanent home, and to be attached solely to will of God, recognizing that He could take our all of our possessions and our nearest and dearest relatives in a flash, knowing full well that our own lives might be demanded of us this very day.
These words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as recorded in the Gospel according to Saint Matthew, should suffice to forewarn us of the fact that the world will end one day, but also to be wary of thinking that we can "figure" out when that day will be:
 And Jesus being come out of the temple, went away. And his disciples came to shew him the buildings of the temple.  And he answering, said to them: Do you see all these things? Amen I say
to you there shall not be left here a stone upon a stone that shall not
be destroyed.  And when he was sitting on mount Olivet, the disciples came to him
privately, saying: Tell us when shall these things be? and what shall be
the sign of thy coming, and of the consummation of the world?  And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you:  For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ: and they will seduce many.
 And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that ye be not
troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and
there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places:  Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows.  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to
death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name's sake.  And then shall many be scandalized: and shall betray one another: and shall hate one another.
 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall seduce many.  And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold.  But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world,
for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come.  When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that
readeth let him understand.
 Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains:  And he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house:  And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat.  And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days.  But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath.
 For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.  And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but
for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.  Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him.  For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew
great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the
elect.  Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.
 If therefore they shall say to you: Behold he is in the desert, go ye not out: Behold he is in the closets, believe it not.  For as lightning cometh out of the east, and appeareth even into the west: so shall the coming of the Son of man be.  Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together.  And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth
mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
with much power and majesty.
 And he shall send his angels with a trumpet, and a great voice: and
they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the
farthest parts of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them.  And from the fig tree learn a parable: When the branch thereof is now
tender, and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh.  So you also, when you shall see all these things, know ye that it is nigh, even at the doors.  Amen I say to you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.  Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words shall not pass.
 But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Father alone.  And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, even till that day in which Noe entered
into the ark,  And they knew not till the flood came, and took them all away; so also shall the coming of the Son of man be.  Then two shall be in the field: one shall be taken, and one shall be left.
 Two women shall be grinding at the mill: one shall be taken, and one shall be left.  Watch ye therefore, because ye know not what hour your Lord will come.  But know this ye, that if the goodman of the house knew at what hour
the thief would come, he would certainly watch, and would not suffer his
house to be broken open.  Wherefore be you also ready, because at what hour you know not the Son of man will come.  Who, thinkest thou, is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath appointed over his family, to give them meat in season.
 Blessed is that servant, whom when his lord shall come he shall find so doing.  Amen I say to you, he shall place him over all his goods.  But if that evil servant shall say in his heart: My lord is long a coming:  And shall begin to strike his fellow servants, and shall eat and drink with drunkards:  The lord of that servant shall come in a day that he hopeth not, and at an hour that he knoweth not:
 And shall separate him, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 24: 1-51.)
This is all we need to know about end times. We need to know that Our Lord will come in a flash. Unlike His First Coming in anonymity and humility in the cradle in the stable in the cave in Bethlehem when He was born amongst the stench of the barn animals and placed into a feeding trough, a manger, from which the took their food, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of God the Holy Ghost will come summa cum gloria, that is, in full glory. Everyone will know who He is. The just will rejoice at His Second Coming. The unjust will attempt to flee in fright at the recognition of their own eternal damnation.
Yes, sure, indeed. There are many signs that point to greater cataclysms ahead of us than those that we have seen thus far, especially in this year of 2011. We simply do not know the day or the hour, which is why we have no luxury at all to be immersed in the ways of naturalism, that is, the ways of the world, the flesh and the devil. We are to live in this passing world. We are not to be of this world.
So many people alive today, including so many Catholics, are living exactly the way in which the revelers who did not heed Noe's warnings about their impending doom prior to the Great Flood:
 But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Father alone.  And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, even till that day in which Noe entered
into the ark,  And they knew not till the flood came, and took them all away; so also shall the coming of the Son of man be.  Then two shall be in the field: one shall be taken, and one shall be left. (Matthew 24: 36-39.)
Why are we still partying as though the end may not come for us today? Why do we surrender to this or that temptation to "go with the crowd" in order to "get along"? Why do we think it has become all right with the passage of time for men and women to dress immodestly and to speak indecently? Why do we think that the demonic noise that goes by the name of "rock music" and all of its many variations has been "acceptable"? Why are we so afraid of standing out and being criticized or rejected or ridiculed for being "different" than the "mainstream"? Why? Why? Why? Do we think that we have made by God to have an endless succession of "good times"? Or have we been made by Him to know, to love and to serve Him in this life so that we can be happy with Him for all eternity in an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise?
(Oh, just an aside for any Modernist "Scripture scholars" might be reading this: Our Lord, the God-Man, spoke of of the flood that occurred in Noe's time, meaning, of course, that the flood really occurred. To deny that the flood occurred is to make a liar of Our Lord or to blaspheme God the Holy Ghost by putting into question the fact that Our Lord actually said what is recorded in the Gospel according to Saint Matthew. Just an aside, you understand. Just an aside.)
While we can certainly enjoy the good things of earth in moderation, we must do so in light of our eternal destiny without endangering the cause of the salvation of our immortal souls or the souls of others. Catholics have not been baptized and confirmed to be "liked" or "respected" or "successful" in the eyes of the world. We have been baptized and confirmed to bear witness to the truths of the true Faith no matter what it might cost us in earthly terms. We should prefer all things, including death itself, rather than to make a single compromise to the prevailing culture that is so filled with incentives to sin and impiety.
Catholics are not Manicheans or Jansenists. We are not Calvinists. Catholics attempt to find the "middle way" as one by can by excess or by defect, which is why it is important to have a good confessor who understands the dangers posed by the world while at the same time recognizing that we cannot live as hermits and must seek to sanctify and thus to save our immortal souls with the help of Our Lady's loving prayers from eternity in the situation of the world as it is right now, the situation that God has known from all eternity would face us in our own lives. It is nevertheless true that we must not be worldlings. We must do our duties in the world while being willing to give up all of its pleasures as we seek to make sacrifices that are unseen to other men--and might mean utterly nothing to them--in order to make reparation for our sins as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Our ancient adversary, the devil, who prowls about the world seeking souls to devour, wants us to tempt us in a variety of ways as we seek to keep on the rocky road that leads to the Narrow Gate of Life Himself, Christ the King. It is for this reason that he raises up false prophets in the midst of the world to seek to reaffirm us in our pursuit of one wanton pleasure after another. And it is for this reason that he raises up false theological prophets to dupe the gullible into following anyone other than Our Lord as He has revealed Himself exclusively to us through His true Church, the Catholic Church, that He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
The false prophet named Harold Camping is a prime example of how the devil seeks to mock Divine Revelation. Harold Camping knows nothing of the true Sacred Deposit of Faith, which consists of Sacred Scripture and Sacred (or Apostolic) Tradition that has been given by Our Lord solely to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication. Harold Camping's abysmal failure to "predict" that the world would end on May 21, 2011, thus ushering in the fiction called "the rapture" that some Protestants are led by the devil will occur in end times, was a clever ploy on the part of the adversary to use a man who thinks he is a "prophet of end times" to mock Saint John the Evangelist's Book of Apocalypse. The devil wants people to be eating and drinking and making merry now just as they were at the time of Noe prior to the Flood. And, yes, there will be people who will be running after Harold Camping's new and "improved" prediction," the world will end on October 21, 2011, after an "invisible" end on May 21, 2011 (Sad Sack Protestant Sect Leader Who Got Date of Rapture Wrong Tries Again).
Major earthquakes in Haiti and Chile and Japan and elsewhere in the past sixteen months? A tsunami and a nuclear disaster in Japan following the earthquake that occurred there on March 11, 2011, the Friday after Ash Wednesday? Monster tornadoes that have taken close to six hundred lives in the past two months here in the United States of America? Laugh loud. Party heart. Pass the chips. Chortle a few Buds. There's nothing to be concerned about. What? Be concerned about dying? Be concerned about judgment on my soul or the end of the world? Look at Harold Camping! It's all a farce.
Yes, that's how many worldlings think. And this is how the devil continues to use Protestantism, which is of its very evil nature a mockery of the Catholic Faith which is why any Catholic who, for the sake of public appearance or career success, refers to the "Christian churches" brings great opprobrium on his head as there is only one Christian church, the Catholic Church. None other. Even the Orthodox, who have true Sacraments, lack the Catholic Faith, which one must believe in its entirety without an iota of dissent. No one in any Protestant sect represents "Christianity," and their "insights" about "the Gospel," whether they come from "liberal" or "fundamentalist" Protestants, must be rejected as there is nothing lacking the Divine Constitution of Holy Mother Church that we must seek out from the lips or the writings of men who are not members of his true Church and who are thus at war with Our Lord and His Sacred Deposit of Faith.
Obviously, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and many of his conciliar "bishops" do find certain Protestant "theologians" and "Scripture scholars" worth citing. Most of these "theologians" and "scholars" are of the same Modernist mindset as the false "pontiff" himself, making it all the more easy for Catholics baptized into the conciliar structures who have some semblance of the Faith in their immortal souls to become easy prey for fundamentalist Protestant snake-oil salesmen such as Harold Camping. Many Catholics, upset with the leftist ideology they hear being bandied about in pulpits or coming from the false "pope" himself, have taken false refuge under the "guidance" of the false prophets of one shade or another of Protestantism that gives an appearance of true Christianity but is simply nothing other than a mockery of the true Faith.
One man with an Irish surname who must have been baptized as a Catholic, Robert Fitzpatrick, spend $140,000 of his own money to spread word that "Judgment Day" would be Saturday, May 21, 2011:
In New York, retired transportation agency
worker Robert Fitzpatrick was inspired by Camping's message to spend
over $140,000 of his savings on subway posters and outdoor
advertisements warning of the May 21 Judgment Day.
he stood in Times Square in New York surrounded by onlookers,
Fitzpatrick, 60, carried a Bible and handed out leaflets as he waited
for Judgment Day to begin.
own reading of Bible, which was slightly different than Camping's,
Fitzgerald expected the great worldwide event to begin at 6 p.m. Eastern
When the hour came and went, he said: "I do not understand why ...," as his speech broke off and he looked at his watch.
"I do not understand why nothing has happened."
who previously made a failed prediction Jesus Christ would return to
Earth in 1994, had said doomsday would begin at 6 p.m. in the various
time zones around the globe. (As hours tick by, Judgment Day looks a dud.)
One false religion, conciliarism, that is an ape of Protestantism and naturalism and of true Catholicism, has driven countless millions of Catholics into the waiting arms of the false prophets of Protestant sects. Robert Fitzpatrick is sixty years ago, meaning, depending upon whether he was born in the last six months of 1950 or in the year 1951, he is around my own age. A man of that name would have had exposure to the Baltimore Catechism. He would have made his First Penance and have received First Holy Communion and have been Confirmed in the true rite of the Catholic Church. Admitting that there could be a welter of factors that might have driven such a man out of the Catholic Faith, there are so many fully documented cases of Catholics abandoning the Faith in its entirety because they could not stand to hear the assaults against Faith and Morals that have become so commonplace in so many parishes in the latter part of the 1960s and thereafter.
Additionally, of course, the very existence of the "pluralism" that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is always praising as he seeks to find a way for "religions" to join together to fight "irreligion" is what gives the devil plenty of grand opportunities to use false prophets to proselytize in behalf of their false beliefs that "sound good," doing so under the cover of "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion. Behold the fruits of "religious liberty"! They are rotten to the core.
We have been warned. Thus, few in number though you may be, consider yet again these papal warning of what happens when every religious falsehood imaginable is placed on a level of equality with the one and only true Faith, Catholicism:
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to
that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of
conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred
and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the
greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But
the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was
wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on
the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to
evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from
which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which
locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation
of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws
-- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other.
Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for
wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil,
namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire
for novelty. (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
For you well know, venerable brethren, that at this
time men are found not a few who, applying to civil society the impious
and absurd principle of "naturalism," as they call it, dare to teach
that "the best constitution of public society and (also) civil progress
altogether require that human society be conducted and governed without
regard being had to religion any more than if it did not exist; or, at
least, without any distinction being made between the true religion and
false ones." And, against the doctrine of Scripture, of the Church, and
of the Holy Fathers, they do not hesitate to assert that "that is the
best condition of civil society, in which no duty is recognized, as
attached to the civil power, of restraining by enacted penalties,
offenders against the Catholic religion, except so far as public peace
may require." From which totally false idea of social government
they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its
effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our
Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an "insanity," viz., that "liberty of
conscience and worship is each man's personal right, which ought to be
legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society;
and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which
should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil,
whereby they may be able openly and publicly to manifest and declare any
of their ideas whatever, either by word of mouth, by the press, or in
any other way." But, while they rashly affirm this, they do not think
and consider that they are preaching "liberty of perdition;" and that
"if human arguments are always allowed free room for discussion, there
will never be wanting men who will dare to resist truth, and to trust in
the flowing speech of human wisdom; whereas we know, from the very
teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, how carefully Christian faith and
wisdom should avoid this most injurious babbling."
And, since where religion has been removed from
civil society, and the doctrine and authority of divine revelation
repudiated, the genuine notion itself of justice and human right is
darkened and lost, and the place of true justice and legitimate right is
supplied by material force, thence it appears why it is that some,
utterly neglecting and disregarding the surest principles of sound
reason, dare to proclaim that "the people's will, manifested by what is
called public opinion or in some other way, constitutes a supreme law,
free from all divine and human control; and that in the political order
accomplished facts, from the very circumstance that they are
accomplished, have the force of right." But who, does not see
and clearly perceive that human society, when set loose from the bonds
of religion and true justice, can have, in truth, no other end than the
purpose of obtaining and amassing wealth, and that (society under such
circumstances) follows no other law in its actions, except the
unchastened desire of ministering to its own pleasure and interests? (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)
If men do not believe in the true Faith, my good and quite invisible readers, they will believe in anything and everything, including that a man who denies the nature of dogmatic truth and personally esteems the symbols of false religions with his own hands and praises the very religious liberty that has been condemned by our true popes can be a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter. Move over, Harold Camping, you have company in Rome.
We must always view the world
through the eyes of the Faith, rejecting all of the deceits of
naturalism that have produced this temporary triumph of the
A book that was instrumental in convincing Therese Martin to seek entrance in the Carmel of Lisieux is The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life.
This book, which consists in a series of conferences given in France by
Father Charles Arminjon, has been translated in to English and
published by Sophia Press. Father Arminjon's foreword to this book is an
exhortation to flee the deceits of this world as we concentrate on
getting home to Heaven as members of the Catholic Church without making any concessions at all to an of the errors of naturalism in the world and without defecting from any point contained in true Christian doctrine that is founded only in the Catholic Church and absolutely nowhere else:
It has seemed to us that one of the saddest fruits
of rationalism, the fatal error and great plague of our century, the
pestilential source from which our revolutions and social disasters
arise, is the absence of the sense of the supernatural and the profound
neglect of the great truths of the future life. The earth is afflicted
with a dreadful desolation, because the majority of men, fascinated by
the lure of fleeting pleasures, and absorbed in their worldly interests
and the care of their material affairs, no longer fix their thoughts on
the principal considerations of the Faith, and stubbornly refuse to
recollect within themselves. It may be said of our present generation
what the prophet Daniel said, in this time, of the two old men of
Babylon: "They suppressed their consciences, they would not allow their
eyes to look to heaven, and did not keep in mind God's just judgments.
The two causes of this terrifying indifferences and
profound universal lethargy are, obviously, ignorance and the
unrestrained love of sensual pleasures that, by darkening the interior
eye of the human soul, bring all its aspirations down to the narrow
level of the present life, and cut it off from the vision of the
beauties and rewards to come. Now, since wise men have found at all
times that contradictions are overcome with their opposites, it seemed
to us that the most efficacious remedy with which to fight confidently
against the inveterate evil of naturalism was a lucid, clear, and exact
exposition, without diminution, of the essential truths dealing with the
future life and the inevitable termination of human destinies.
Perhaps we shall be accused of expressing this or
that assertion of ours too crudely and starkly, and of broaching the
most serious and formidable points of Christian doctrine, without, at
the same time, modifying and softening them so as to adapt them to the
prejudices or apathy of certain souls, unacquainted with such grave
considerations--like a physician who carefully allows only a limited
amount of light to a sick friend, in order not to hurt his painful eyes
by excessive glare. However, in the religious and supernatural order,
the phenomena and effects wrought upon the soul are often the reverse of
those that occur in the physical and material order. In the visible
world, an excessive amount of light dazzles: it leads to dimness of
vision and causes blindness.
On the other hand, as soon as the mind enters the
intellectual realm, and is transported into the vast sphere of invisible
and uncreated matter, excess is no longer to be feared. Jesus Christ is
the great luminary of our intellects, the food and life of our hearts.
He is never better understood, or more loved, than when He manifests
Himself liberally in the integrity of His doctrine and the most eminent
splendors of His divine personality. The example of the Apostles
announcing the gospel amidst the twilight of paganism, and boldly
preaching Jesus Christ crucified before the Roman Senate and amidst the
philosophers of the Areopagus, is enough to tell us that truth is
attractive to souls naturally Christian, and that it enlightens and
convinces them only insofar as it is presented to them in all its
strength and in all its clarity.
Our trial is limited to the duration to the period
of the present life. If, as the rationalists maintain, this life is only
a link in the chain of our destiny, and if the course of time wherein
man is subject to strife, temptation, and the blandishments of the
senses and of creatures should continue indefinitely, then Jesus Christ
will never be king, virtue brings no hope, and evil will remain
eternally triumphant. Thus, it is quite certain that the scene being
played here below will sooner or later, reach its climax and end.
Mankind will then enter upon a new phase of existence, and all that we
cherish, all that we search after in this present life, will be less
than a shadow, and vain smoke. This is a certain fact, which will all
our discoveries and the marvels of our genius will not be able to
participate. (Father Charles Arminjon,The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life, translated by Susan Conroy and Peter McEnerny. Manchester, New Hampshire: Sophia Institute Press, 2008, pp. xvii-xix.)
Today, this day, Tuesday, May 24, 2011, could be doomsday for me. It could be doomsday for you. Are you ready?
We need Our Lady's help to get home to Heaven. We are lost without her assistance as she is the Mediatrix of All Graces and our Advocate. Anyone who thinks he can battle the forces of the world, the flesh and the devil and thus of the false prophets in the world without Our Lady's assistance is worse than a fool. Such a person might very well be on the road to eternal damnation. It must not be that way with us.
Our hope must then be in Our Lady, to whom we commend the particular needs of those who have been rendered refugees at this time. We trust in Our Lady to help us to save our own souls, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. We must trust in Our Lady to save our souls from the destructive power of sin, even venial sin, in our own souls, which shone so brilliantly at the moment of our baptism but. We need to ask Our Lady every day to help us to be prepared for the moment of our own deaths, recognizing that we live at a time in salvation history when the forces unleashed by the social toleration and promotion of sin are exacting a heavy toll on us all and might take us from this mortal life when we least expect it.
We do indeed need Our Lady's help so that our souls will not be lost for all eternity, which is why, of course, we must pray our Rosaries every day without fail and to pray them so very well. We never know when our next Rosary will be our last Rosary. And one way to avoid being burned for all eternity in the flames of Hell that emit sulphur dioxide is to pray our Rosaries well as we meditate upon the mysteries contained therein, making sure also to be enrolled in and to wear and to fulfill the conditions of her Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel as we distribute blessed Green Scapulars to those who God's Holy Providence places in our paths.
May we keep Our Lady's Fatima requests so that the day will soon arrive when all hearts in this country and around the world, consecrated to Our Lord through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, will exclaim:
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, pray for us, especially on your feast day today!
Saint Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, pray for us.
