ROSARY

IT IS TIME FOR SPIRITUAL BATTLE

Prayer to protect our website and prayers:


Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prœlio;

contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

Ámen


Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.




Sacred Heart of Jesus, guide us and pray for us.


Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.


Most chaste Heart of St Joseph, pray for us.

Commander Cross Rosary prays the Jesus Prayer as well as Holy Joseph- and Holy Family prayers.


4. PRAYERS FOR PRIESTS


The origin of this form of prayer is divine rather than human.

"The Rosary is then ended with a prayer for the intentions of the Pope" (Pope JP II in Rosarium Virginis Mariae 2002).

Our Lady of Akita said in her third apparition on Oct 13, 1973:

"With the Rosary pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests."

5. LITANY OF LORETO


The Pentitent's Rosary offers an optional ending; Praying the Litany of Loreto. The litany was requested by Pope Leo XIII to add to the Rosary in his Supremi Apostolatus Officio of Sept 1883, in Superiore Anno in Aug 1884.


Commander Cross has decided to include the Litany as an optional ending. We love it!

The Step-by-Step Rosary follows our developed format;

the way the Pearls “converge upon the Crucifix,

which both opens and closes the unfolding sequence of prayer."



Our Lady of Fatima said to the children; pray the Rosary every day and

"Pray the rosary for peace and an end to the war."

.

Our Lady of Akita said in 1973; "Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary.


Ven. Fulton J. Sheen said:

"I am proposing to you, one daily continuous hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. ... no 15 minute visits adding up to an hour ... For the laity I am recommending to you 15 minutes a day and it need not be spent in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, you may make it at home reading the gospels. ... and if you have not great responsibilities, then do the hour, as many lay people are doing."



Our Lord asked for it (Matt 26:40-41):

“So you had not strength to watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”



At the Commander Cross Rosary, we then asked ourselves:


    • How can we honour Our Lord for one simple hour per day?
    • Can we pray the Rosary for one hour a day
      and use the Mysteries as our 15 minutes meditation?
    • Can our Rosary become a Holy Hour to honour Our Lady and Our Lord?


.............


SO - we developed and filled the Rosary with prayers before the Rosary, we pray the the actual Rosary with scriptures for us to meditate over (5 mysteries x 3 minutes = 15 minutes meditation) and we follow what Popes through history asks us to do.

We ask for forgiveness and we pray for others through our intentions.


Our Lady of Akita said to Sister Agnes in 1973:

"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres, churches and altars will be sacked."


We believe that we may be right at the final point of "churches and altars will be sacked". It has already happened in some places... . All the previous points are fulfilled!  


The first Commandment was breached at the beginning and through the Amazon Synod with the five wooden "statues" 



2) Our Lady of Fatima stated at her third apparition on July 13, 1917:

"When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery:

“O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need.”"

.................

Therefore, we place the "O my Jesus... " prayer right after the actual Mystery - and Not after Glory Be.../Gloria Patri. We have no problems if the user prays the O my Jesus after the Glory be which is still "after the mystery".

Pope Paul VI writes in his Marialis Cultus (about Our Father, Ave Maria and Glory be: "Glory be to the Father which, in conformity with an orientation common to Christian piety concludes the prayer with the glorifying of God"

.................



5) The Pentitent's Rosary offers an optional ending; praying the Litany of Loreto.


This follows the request from Pope Leo XIII, in his Supremi Apostolatus Officio of September 1883:

"From the first day of next October, therefore, until the second day of the November following, in every parish and, if the ecclesiastical authority deem it opportune and of use, in every chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin - let five decades of the Rosary be recited with the addition of the Litany of Loreto."


and Superiore Anno in August 1884 (five decades at least of the Rosary be recited, together with the Litany).



Times have been tough over centuries and the Rosary is a great tool which Pope Leo XIII writes:



"For as the disastrous condition of the Church and of Society proved to Us

the extreme necessity for signal aid from God,

it was manifest to Us that aid should be sought through the intercession of His Mother,

and by the express means of the Rosary,

which Christians have ever found to be of marvellous avail.

This indeed has been well proved since the very institution of the devotion,

both in the vindication of Holy Faith against the furious attacks of heresy,

and in restoring to honour the virtues, which by reason of the Age's corruption,

required to be rekindled and sustained. "

Iucunda Semper Expectatione in 1894.

Grant, O Lord, that we may begin with holy fasting
this campaign of Christian service,
so that, as we take up battle against spiritual evils,
we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint


This is our  Time.

This is for future generations.

Get up from the couch.

Stand up.


Our Lord died on the Cross on the Mount Calvary

and

Our Lord ascended from the Mount Olives.

Let us walk up the hill but come down a Mountain...

Our Mother Church is larger


The Church is supernatural. It is not an organisation.

The Holy Mother Church is greater than the Pope, than the Cardinals or Bishops. They are all members of the Church.

Keep the Faith


This is the victory that overcomes the world, our Faith.
