Perpetual Supplica

THESE PRAYERS ARE SAID EACH MIDNIGHT
IN FRONT OF THE BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE AT ROME

This devotion is inspired by the request made by Our Lady Herself in
Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Vision of

August 25, 1822: “I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Around it I saw crowds of poor, pious souls, in great distress and anxiety on account of the Pope’s disappearance and the agitation and alarming reports throughout the city. Led by one common impulse, they had come to invoke the Mother of God. They did not expect to find the church open, they intended only to pray outside. But I was inside, I opened the door and they entered, astounded at the door’s opening of itself. I was standing aloof where they could not see me. There was no service, only the chancel-lamps were burning, and the people knelt in quiet prayer. Then the Mother of God appeared. She said that great tribulations were at hand; that the people must pray earnestly with extended arms, if only for the length of three Our Fathers, for it was thus that her Son had prayed for them upon the Cross; that they should rise at midnight to pray thus; that they should continue to come to Her church which they would always find open; and that they should, above all, pray for the extirpation of the Church of Darkness. … I know not whether the people saw the apparition or not, but they must have been impressed by something supernatural for, when the Blessed Virgin said they should pray to God with arms extended, all lifted up their arms … It seemed to be an association of prayer.” From this time Sister Emmerich assisted nightly at the pious exercises at Santa Maria Maggiore. (The Life and Revelations of Ann Catherine Emmerich, Book 2)

* Salus populi Romani, is Latin, for The Salvation of the Roman People. It is the ancient title of the Icon of Our Lady see at the top of this article.

The Faith must be our Security Policy, or it means nothing

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the great modern errors is to think that the Catholic Faith is a collection of ideas, doctrines, teachings, and not the adhesion of the mind to revealed truth, which comes from the God Who is Truth and Who cannot deceive.

This error leads us to think that the Faith is something you can find in a book, copy, and repeat, but which does not enter into the firm purpose of your mind AND heart.

The man who allows this error into his mind is very willing to dialogue with unbelievers, because he has already relegated the Faith to a curious anachronism, a body of knowledge, which does not hold him bound in everything and at all times.

But such a faith is not the first principle of thought or action.  It is rather a database to be referred to when it suits the one who knows it, even if he call himself a believer.

But the true notion of the Faith is something which is the first principle of our thoughts and actions, and the security policy of our very existence.

It is the first principle, because in every consideration the Faith is the first rule by which all is judged, measured, examined, questioned and doubted.  And as the first principle of our thoughts and actions, we never question it, doubt it, or put it under examination. Least of all do we put it on the same level as opinion, superstition, error or falsehood. Likewise, we never pretend or tolerate that it be considered a human invention or handiwork.

As the first principle of our thoughts and actions, it is the rule of our heart and the security of our souls. Because just as the very first response to any threat to head of state is the response of his security team, who without asking questions and presuming things benign, takes immediate action to prevent harm, placing itself in a defensive posture, so our Faith must be mobilized whenever there is any threat to our eternal salvation or that of anyone else, even if he is not yet a believer.

Understanding and employing faith in this correct way, we are saved from a multitude of sins, and from all mortal sin, because we turn aside from temptations and occasions of sins before the risk of mortal sin even appears. We choose rather an entirely different course of action and head out on the path to Heaven, in the fulfillment of our duties to God, in works of charity, and in the sanctification and mortification of our own persons.

Against this right notion of faith as a first principle and security policy, the Devil of our age screams, “Tolerance!” so that we lower our defenses and place our faith on the same level of perverse sentiments, ungodly error, and self-destructive superstitions, or politically induced mental diseases. He wants us to tolerate abomination, perversion, insanity, madness, capriciousness, whimsical-ness and fraud and liars of every kind.

The hallmark of the true Christian, however, is his intolerance of evil, sin and error. To the one who is in error or sin, but who does not defend his sin or error, we should always be ready with a word of hope and point them to true salvation, in Christ Jesus our Lord. But to the one who defends his sin and error, we must take a position of absolute intransigence and recognize that they are a threat not only to our souls and those of our loved ones, but to our nation and humanity itself. Such persons should never be allowed to form political parties, movements or hold office. To allow such a thing would be to allow the suicide of the nation, the enslavement of the weak and innocent, the abuse of the institutions of government and civilization.

Contrariwise, as sincere Christians, when we hold office we are obliged by Jesus Christ to enact laws and regulations which defend the whole of society from such insane persons. For the man who cannot govern himself is in no way fit to govern or guide a nation.

This is the true vision of the Catholic Faith. Anything less is a counterfeit product.
