TRADITIONAL LATIN ROSARY
Let us Pray the Rosary for freedom against evil ...
During Advent- and Christmas season, we only pray the Joyful mysteries.
The actual Rosary prayers follow the great Catholic tradition and how Cardinal Leo Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider prays it in Latin. We have no intention of inventing the wheel, again ... and we try to piggy-back on the ones who are spiritual leaders, current and past, caring for our souls to come to Heaven, instead of Hell.
Founded in 2019, the Commander Cross is our answer to Bishop Athanasius Schneider's call for more knights
in the spiritual battle between the forces of good and evil.
Not all our work is seen in our website, even though we really want to. There has been a tremendous work behind the scenes sorting out many old questions.
The "new" format of the actual Rosary prayers follow both Cardinal Leo Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneiders way of praying it in Latin. We follow the Catholic tradition of learning. Now, anyone can do it, and even if we did it three years ago, it would not answer our first two questions. It would just be the mechanical prayer.
Pope Francis I called all Catholics in Sept 30, 2018 to finish your Rosary prayers with Sub Tuum and the Archangel St. Michael prayers.
We are now implementing it all through our Step-by-Step community partners.
Pope Benedict wrote in his Apostolic Letter, Summorum Pontificum:
"It is known, in fact, that the Latin liturgy of the Church in its various forms, in each century of the Christian era, has been a spur to the spiritual life of many saints, has reinforced many peoples in the virtue of religion and fecundated their piety. Many other Roman pontiffs, in the course of the centuries, showed particular solicitude in ensuring that the sacred liturgy accomplished this task more effectively. Outstanding among them is St. Pius V who, sustained by great pastoral zeal and following the exhortations of the Council of Trent, renewed the entire liturgy of the Church, oversaw the publication of liturgical books amended and “renewed in accordance with the norms of the fathers,” and provided them for the use of the Latin Church."
"The Roman Missal promulgated by Pope Paul VI is the ordinary expression of the lex orandi (rule of prayer) of the Catholic Church of the Latin rite. The Roman Missal promulgated by Saint Pius V and revised by Blessed John XXIII is nonetheless to be considered an extraordinary expression of the same lex orandi of the Church and duly honoured for its venerable and ancient usage. These two expressions of the Church’s lex orandi will in no way lead to a division in the Church’s lex credendi (rule of faith); for they are two usages of the one Roman rite."
If a living Pope writes this, and several Popes who now are Saints supported it,
why not want to be part of it too.
