Papa Benedict, you said to proclaim the Gospel –to “go forth and blog.” And so, now I will do my part; I will begin blogging.
I don’t know where you are exactly, or what is happening to you. But our beautiful holy Church is in crisis. You—and St. Pope John Paul II—have set down the rules to follow. Gratefully, there is a Catechism. And gratefully there are courageous priests, bishops and even lay people who are willing to be faithful to the Bride of Christ—to the true Catholic Church. It would be nice if you could come out as well and assist, but if you cannot, that is all right. Our Lady will help us.
Our greatest hope is in prayer, our greatest weapon against evil is the rosary. And we will pray. And we will fast. And we will ask for and hopefully have the courage to stand up for what is right, to remain true to the Catholic Church, the Church founded by our Lord Jesus Christ.
And Papa Benedict, we will also go forth and blog.
Papa Benedict, Papa St. John Paul II, please pray for us!
Psalm 69: “Oh God, come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek my soul. Let them be turned backward and blush for shame, that desire evils to me. Let them be presently turned away blushing for shame that say to me: ‘T is well, ‘t is well. Let all that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee. And let such as love Thy salvation say always: The Lord be magnified.
But I am needy and poor; Oh God, help me. Thou art my helper and my deliverer. Oh Lord make no delay.”
Glory be to the Father, and to the son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and very shall be, world without end. Amen.
Remember, O most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or south thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, my mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Aparecida, Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, help us now. Crush the serpent, confirm your Son as Christ the King, as the One True God, the Son of the Living God. Help us to be strong. Please pray for us and guide us all and our beautiful Church back Home and into the arms of your Divine Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
