“I am all thine my Queen and Mother and all that I have is Thine”.

Scripture says:

“Pray without ceasing.”

St. Paul of the Cross wrote: “We enter on the broad
road of perdition when we neglect prayer.” Dr. Alexis Carrel wrote:

“If you make a habit of prayer, your life will be profoundly altered.”

As a scientist he turned to prayer as man s highest

May this Pieta Prayer Booklet serve as a spiritual tool for souls who wish to increase their daily
prayer life. May the Dear Angels who carried the Holy House of Loreto carry this booklet to all
persons who wish to pray more after reciting the daily rosary.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

The Fifteen Prayers of Saint Bridget of Sweden
These prayers were revealed by Our Lord to Saint Bridget in the Church of St. Paul at Rome,
and are published under sanction of the Decree of November 18, 1966, published in the Acta of
Apostolicae Sedis, Vol. 58, No. 16 of December 29, 1966.
The prayers have been approved by Pope Pius IX, and Pope Benedict XV expressed himself as
follows on the Revelations of St. Bridget:

“The approbation of such revelations implies nothing more than, after mature examination, it is
permissible to publish them for the unit of the faithful.

Though they don’t merit the same
credence as the truths of religion, one can, however, believe them out of human faith,

conforming to the rules of prudence by which they are probable, and supported by sufficient
motives that one might believe in them piously.”
(Les Petits Bollandistes, tome XII)
The 14th of June 1303, at the moment Bridget was born, Benedict, the curate of Rasbo, prayed
for the happy deliverence of Ingeborde. Suddenly, he found himself enveloped by a luminous
cloud out of which Our Lady appeared:
“A child has been born at Birger; her voice will be heard by the entire world.”
Sagii, die XXIV Aprilis 1903

These Prayers and these Promises have been copied from a book printed in Toulouse in 1740
and published by the P. Adrien Parvilliers of the Company of Jesus, Apostolic Missionary of the
Holy Land, with approbation, permission and recommendation to distribute them.
Parents and teachers who will read them to young infants for at least one year will assure their
being preserved for life from any grave accident which would involve the loss of one of their five
Pope Pius IX took cognizance of these Prayers with the prologue; he approved them May 31,
1862, recognizing them as true and for the good of souls.
This sentence of Pope Pius IX has been confirmed by the realization of promises by all persons
who have recited the prayers and by numerous supernatural facts by which God wanted to make
known their exact truth. A collection of small books, these prayers among them, was approved
by the Great Congress of Malines on August 22, 1863.

Question — Must one recite the Prayers everyday without interruption to obtain the

Answer — One should miss saying them as few times as possible; but if for a serious
reason one is obliged to miss them, one doesn’t lose the privileges attached to them,
as long as one recites 5480 prayers during the year. One must say them with
devotion and concentrate on the words one pronounces.
These prayers can serve as the Way of the Cross.
Visitors to the Church of St. Paul at Rome can see the crucifix, above the Tabernacle in the
Blessed Sacrament Chapel, sculptured by Pierre Cavallini, before which St. Bridget knelt when
she received these 15 Prayers from Our Lord.

The following inscription is placed in the church to
commemorate the event: “Pendentis, Pendente Dei verba accepit aure accipit et verbum corde
Brigitta Deum.

Anno Jubilei MCCCL”, which recalls the prodigy with which the crucifix conversed
with Bridget.

As St. Bridget for a long time wanted to know the number of blows Our Lord received during
His Passion, He one day appeared to her and said: “I received5480 blows on My Body.

If you
wish to honor them in some way, recite fifteen times the Our Father and Hail Mary, together with
the following prayers, which I Myself will teach you for an entire year. When the year is finished,
you will have honored each of My Wounds.”

Our Lord made the following promises to anyone who recited the fifteen Saint Bridget
Prayers devoutly every day for a whole year:

  1. I will deliver 15 souls of his lineage from Purgatory.
  2. 15 souls of his lineage will be confirmed and preserved in grace.
  3. 15 sinners of his lineage will be converted.
  4. Whoever recites these Prayers will attain the first degree of perfection.
  5. 15 days before his death, I will give him My Precious Body in order that he may escape eternal starvation; I will
    give him my Precious Blood to drink lest he thirst eternally.
  6. 15 days before his death he will feel a deep contrition for all his sins and will have a perfect knowledge of them.
  7. I will place before him the sign of My Victorious Cross for his help and defense against the attacks of his
  8. Before his death I shall come with My Dearest Beloved Mother.
  9. I shall graciously receive his soul, and will lead it into eternal joys.
  10. And having led it there I shall give him a special draught from the fountain of My Deity, something I will not do
    for those who have not recited My Prayers.
  11. Let it be known that whoever may have been living in a state of mortal sin for 30 years, but who will recite
    devoutly, or have the intention to recite these Prayers, I the Lord will forgive him all his sins.
  12. I shall protect him from strong temptations.
  13. I shall preserve and guard his five senses.
  14. I shall preserve him from a sudden death.
  15. His soul will be delivered from eternal death.
  16. He will obtain all he asks for from God and the Blessed Virgin.
  17. If he has lived all his life doing his own will and he is to die the next day, his life will be prolonged.
  18. Every time one recites these Prayers he gains 100 days indulgence.
  19. He is assured of being joined to the supreme Choir of Angels.
  20. Whoever teaches these prayers to another will have continual joy and merit which will last throughout eternity.
  21. There where these Prayers are being said or will be said in the future, God is present with His grace.

First Prayer
Our Father –

Hail Mary.

O Jesus Christ! Eternal Sweetness to those who love Thee, joy surpassing all joy and all desire,
Salvation and Hope of all sinners, Who hast proved that Thou hast no greater desire than to be
among men, even assuming human nature at the fullness of time for the love of men, recall all
the sufferings Thou hast endured from the instant of Thy conception, and especially during Thy
Passion, as it was decreed and ordained from eternity in the Divine plan.
Remember, O Lord, that during the Last Supper with Thy disciples having washed their feet,
Thou gavest them Thy Most Precious Body and Blood, and while at the same time Thou didst
sweetly console them, Thou didst fortell them Thy coming Passion.

Remember the sadness and bitterness which Thou didst experience in Thy Soul as Thou Thyself
bore witness saying:

“My Soul is sorrowful even unto death.”

Remember all the fear, anguish and pain that Thou didst suffer in

Thy delicate Body before the torment of the Crucifixion, when, after having prayed three times, bathed in a sweat of blood,Thou wast betrayed by Judas, Thy disciple, arrested by the people of a nation Thou hadstchosen and elevated, accused by false witnesses, unjustly judged by three judges during theflower of Thy youth and during the solemn Paschal season.Remember that Thou wast despoiled of Thy garments and clothed in those of derision; that Thy Face and Eyes were veiled, that Thou wast buffeted, crowned with thorns, a reed placed in ThyHands, that Thou wast crushed with blows and overwhelmed with affronts and outrages.In memory of all these pains and sufferings which Thou didst endure before Thy Passion on the Cross, grant me before my death true contrition, a sincere and entire confession, worthy satisfaction and the remission all my sins. Amen.

Second Prayer

Our Father

— Hail Mary.
O Jesus! True liberty of angels, paradise of delights, remember the horror and sadness which
Thou didst endure when Thy enemies, like furious lions, surrounded Thee, and by thousands of
insults, spits, blows, lacerations and other unheard-of cruelties, tormented Thee at will. In
consideration of these torments and insulting words, I beseech Thee, O my Savior, to deliver me
from all my enemies, visible and invisible, and to bring me, under Thy protection, to the
perfection of eternal salvation. Amen.

Third Prayer
Our Father

— Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Creator of Heaven and earth Whom nothing can encompass or limit, Thou Who dost
enfold and hold all under Thy loving power, remember the very bitter pain Thou didst suffer when
the Jews nailed Thy Sacred Hands and Feet to the Cross by blow after blow with big blunt nails,
and not finding Thee in a pitiable enough state to satisfy their rage, they enlarged thy Wounds,
and added pain to pain, and with indescribable cruelty stretched Thy Body on the Cross, pulling
Thee from all sides, thus dislocating Thy limbs.
I beg of Thee, O Jesus, by the memory of this most Loving suffering of the Cross, to grant me
the grace to fear Thee and to Love Thee. Amen.

Fourth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Heavenly Physician, raised aloft on the Cross to heal our wounds with Thine,
remember the bruises which Thou didst suffer and the weakness of all Thy Members which were
distended to such a degree that never was there pain like unto Thine. From the crown of Thy
Head to the Soles of Thy Feet there was not one spot on Thy Body that was not in torment, and
yet, forgetting all Thy sufferings, Thou didst not cease to pray to Thy Heavenly Father for Thy
enemies, saying: “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Through this great Mercy, and in memory of this suffering, grant that the remembrance of Thy
Most Bitter Passion may effect in us a perfect contrition and the remission of all our sins. Amen.

Fifth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Mirror of eternal splendor, remember the sadness which Thou experienced, when
contemplating in the light of Thy Divinity the predestination of those who would be saved by the
merits of Thy Sacred Passion, Thou didst see at the same time, the great multitude of
reprobates who would be damned for their sins, and Thou didst complain bitterly of those
hopeless, lost, and unfortunate sinners.

Sixth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Beloved and most desirable King, remember the grief Thou didst suffer, when naked
and like a common criminal, Thou wast fastened and raised on the Cross, when all Thy relatives
and friends abandoned Thee, except Thy Beloved Mother, who remained close to Thee during
Thy agony and whom Thou didst entrust to Thy faithful disciple when Thou saidst to Mary:
“Woman, behold thy son!”, and to St. John: “Son, behold thy Mother!”.
I beg of Thee O my Savior, by the sword of sorrow which pierced the soul of Thy holy Mother, to
have compassion on me in all my afflictions and tribulations, both corporal and spiritual, and to
assist me in all my trials, and especially at the hour of my death. Amen.

Seventh Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Inexhaustable Fountain of compassion, Who by a profound gesture of Love, said from
the Cross: “I thirst,” suffered from the thirst for the salvation of the human race. I beg of Thee, O
my Savior, to inflame in our hearts the desire to tend toward perfection in all our acts, and to
extinguish in us the concupiscence of the flesh and the ardor of worldly desires. Amen.

Eighth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Sweetness of hearts, delight of the spirit, by the bitterness of the gall and vinegar
which Thou didst taste on the Cross for Love of us, grant us the grace to receive worthily Thy
Precious Body and Blood during our life and at the hour of our death, that they may serve as a
remedy and consolation for our souls. Amen.

Ninth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Royal virtue, joy of the mind, recall the pain Thou didst endure when plunged in an
ocean of bitterness at the approach of death, insulted, outraged by the Jews, Thou didst cry out
in a loud voice that Thou wast abandoned by Thy Father, saying: “My God, My God, why hast
Thou forsaken Me?”
Through this anguish, I beg of Thee, O my Savior, not to abandon me in the terrors and pains of
my death. Amen.

Tenth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Who art the beginning and the end of all things, life and virtue, remember that for our
sakes Thou wast plunged in an abyss of suffering from the soles of Thy Feet to the crown of Thy
Head. In consideration of the enormity of Thy Wounds, teach me to keep, through pure love,
Thy Commandments, whose way is wide and easy for those who love Thee. Amen.

Eleventh Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Deep abyss of mercy, I beg of Thee, in memory of Thy Wounds which penetrated to
the very marrow of Thy Bones and to the depth of Thy being, to draw me, a miserable sinner,
overwhelmed by my offenses, away from sin and to hide me from Thy Face justly irritated
against me; hide me in Thy Wounds, until Thy anger and just indignation shall have passed
away. Amen.

Twelfth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Mirror of truth, symbol of unity, link of charity, remember the multitude of wounds with
which Thou wast covered from head to foot, torn and reddened by the spilling of Thy adorable
Blood. O great and universal pain which Thou didst suffer in Thy virginal flesh for love of us!
Sweetest Jesus! What is there that Thou couldst have done for us which Thou hast not done?
May the fruit of Thy sufferings be renewed in my soul by the faithful remembrance of Thy
Passion, and may Thy love increase in my heart each day until I see Thee in eternity, Thou Who
art the treasury of every real good and every joy, which I beg Thee to grant me, O sweetest
Jesus, in Heaven. Amen.

Thirteenth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Strong lion, immortal and invincible King, remember the pain Thou didst endure when
all Thy strength, both moral and physical, was entirely exhausted; Thou didst bow Thy Head,
saying: “It is consummated.”
Through this anguish and grief, I beg of Thee Lord Jesus, to have mercy on me at the hour of
my death when my mind will be greatly troubled and my soul will be in anguish. Amen.

Fourteenth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! Only Son of the Father, splendor and figure of His Substance, remember the simple
and humble recommendation Thou didst make of Thy Soul to Thy Eternal Father, saying:
“Father, into Thy Hands I commend My Spirit!” And with Thy Body all torn, and Thy Heart
broken, and the bowels of Thy Mercy open to redeem us, Thou didst expire.
By this Precious Death, I beg of Thee O King of Saints, to comfort me and help me to resist the
devil, the flesh and the world, so that being dead to the world, I may live for Thee alone. I beg of
Thee at the hour of my death to receive me, a pilgrim and an exile returning to Thee. Amen.

Fifteenth Prayer
Our Father — Hail Mary.
O Jesus! True and fruitful Vine! Remember the abundant outpouring of blood which Thou didst
so generously shed from Thy Sacred Body as juice from grapes in a wine press.
From Thy Side, pierced with a lance by a soldier, blood and water issued forth until there was
not left in Thy Body a single drop, and finally, like a bundle of myrrh lifted to the top of the Cross,
Thy delicate Flesh was destroyed, the very substance of Thy Body withered, and the marrow of
Thy Bones dried up.
Through this bitter Passion, and through the outpouring of Thy Precious Blood, I beg of Thee, O
Sweet Jesus, to receive my soul when I am in my death agony. Amen.

O Sweet Jesus! Pierce my heart so that my tears of penitence and love will be my bread day
and night; may I be converted entirely to Thee, may my heart be Thy perpetual habitation, may
my conversation be pleasing to Thee, and may the end of my life be so praiseworthy that I may
merit Heaven and there with Thy saints, praise Thee forever. Amen.

  1. Promises to those who sing “Ave Maris Stella”
    During a riot at Rome, a mob came to the house where St. Bridget lived; a leader talked of
    burning Bridget alive.
  2. She prayed to Our Lord to know if she should flee to safety. Jesus advised her to stay: “It doesn’t matter if they plot thy death.
  3. My power will break the malice of thy enemies: If Mine crucified Me, it is because I permitted it.” Our Blessed Mother added: “Sing as a group the AVE MARIS STELLA and I’ll guard you from every danger.”

  1. To The Blessed Virgin
    My Queen, my Mother, I give myself entirely to Thee, and to show my devotion to Thee, I
    consecrate to Thee this day, my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without
    reserve. Wherefore good Mother as I am thine own, keep me, guard me, as thy property and
    possession. Amen.

  1. Glory Be To Jesus and Mary
    A letter written by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the City of Messina where St. Paul, the Apostle
    preached the gospel, which has been preserved in the Reliquary of the great altar.
    “I, Mary Virgin, servant of God, very humble Mother of Jesus Christ, Son of God, the
    Almighty and Eternity, to all who are in Messina, health and benediction in Our Lord.
    You have learned by the ambassadors who have been sent to you. You received the
    gospel and you acknowledged that the Son of God has become man, and has
    suffered the passion and death for the salvation of the world, and that He is Christ
    and also the true Messiah. I beseech you to persevere, promising to you, and all
    your posterity, to assist you in the presence of My Son.”

  2. A Prayer for Daily Neglects and
    Good Night To Our Blessed Mother
    A Prayer For Daily Neglects
    Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its love, all its sufferings and
    all its merits.

First – To expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life.
(Glory be to the Father and to the Son and the Holy Ghost as it was in the beginning, is
now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.)
Second – To purify the good I have done badly this day and during all my life.
(Glory Be to the Father…)
Third – To minister for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day
and during all my life.
(Glory Be to the Father…)
A poor Clare nun who had just died, appeared to her Abbess, who was praying for her, and
said to her, “I went straight to Heaven, for, by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I
paid all my debts.”
Good Night To Our Blessed Mother
Night is falling dear Mother, the long day is o’er!
And before thy loved image I am kneeling once more
To thank thee for keeping me safe through the day

To ask thee this night to keep evil away.
Many times have I fallen today, Mother Dear,
Many graces neglected, since last I knelt here;
Wilt thou not in pity, my own Mother mild,
Ask Jesus to pardon the sins of thy child?
I am going to rest, for the day’s work is done,
Its hours and its moments have passed one by one;
And the God who will judge me has noted them all,
He has numbered each grace, He has counted each fall.
In His book they are written against the last day,
O Mother, ask Jesus to wash them away;
For one drop of His blood which for sinners was spilt,
Is sufficient to cleanse the whole world of its guilt.
And if ere the dawn I should draw my last breath
And the sleep that I take be the long sleep of death,
Be near me, dear Mother, for dear Jesus’ sake
When my soul on Eternity’s shore shall awake.

  1. Three Very Beautiful Prayers
    Which are very useful to a dying person, and should be prayed often as an act of mercy.
    There once was a Pope in Rome who was surrounded by many sins. The Lord God struck
    him with a fatal illness. When he saw that he was dying, he summoned Cardinals, Bishops
    and learned persons and said to them: “My dear friends! What comfort can you give me
    now that I must die, and when I deserve eternal damnation for my sins?” No one
    answered him. One of them, a pious curate named John, said: “Father, why do you doubt
    the Mercy of God?” The Pope replied: “What comfort can you give me now that I must die
    and fear that I’ll be damned for my sins?” John replied: “I’ll read these prayers over you; I
    hope you’ll be comforted and that you will obtain Mercy from God.” The Pope was unable
    to say more. The curate and all those present knelt and said an Our Father, then the
    following Prayers:
  2. Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ! Thou Son of God and Son of the Virgin Mary, God and Man, Thou who
in fear sweated blood for us on the Mount of Olives in order to bring peace, and to offer
Thy Most Holy Death to God Thy Heavenly Father for the salvation of this dying person…
If it be, however, that by his sins, he merits eternal damnation, then may it be deflected
from him. This, O Eternal Father through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Dear Son, Who liveth
and reigneth in union with The Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen

  1. Prayer
    Lord Jesus Christ! Thou Who meekly died on the trunk of the Cross for us, submitting Thy
    Will completely to Thy Heavenly Father in order to bring peace and to offer Thy Most Holy
    Death to Thy Heavenly Father in order to free… (this person) …and to hide from him what
    he has earned with his sins; grant this O Eternal Father! Through Our Lord Jesus Thy Son,
    Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in union with the Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen.

  1. Prayer
    Lord Jesus Christ! Thou Who remained silent to speak through the mouths of the
    Prophets: I have drawn Thee to me through Eternal Love, which Love drew Thee from
    Heaven into the body of the Virgin, which Love drew Thee from the body of the Virgin into
    the valley of this needful world, which Love kept Thee 33 years in this world, and as a sign
    of Great Love, Thou hast given Thy Holy Body as True Food and Thy Holy Blood as True
    Drink, as a sign of Great Love, Thou hast consented to be condemned to death, and hast
    consented to die and to be buried and truly risen, and appeared to Thy Holy Mother and all
    Thy Apostles and the hearts of all who hope and believe in Thee. Through Thy Sign of
    Eternal Love, open Heaven today and take this dying person …and all his sins into the
    Realm of Thy Heavenly Father, that he may reign with Thee now and forever. Amen.
    Meanwhile, the pope died. The curate persevered to the third hour, then the Pope
    appeared to him in body and comforting him; his countenance as brilliant as the sun, his
    clothes as white as snow, and he said: “My dear brother! Whereas I was supposed to be
    a child of damnation I’ve become a child of happiness. As you recited the first Prayer,
    many of my sins fell from me as rain from Heaven, and as you recited the second Prayer, I
    was purified, as a goldsmith purifies gold in a hot fire. I was still purified as you recited the
    third Prayer. Then I saw Heaven open and the Lord Jesus standing on the Right Hand of
    God the Father, Who said to me: “Come, all thy sins are forgiven thee, you’ll be and
    remain in the Realm of My Father forever. Amen!”
    With these words, my soul separated from my body and the Angels of God led it to Eternal
    As the curate heard this he said: “O Holy Father! I can’t tell these things to anyone, for
    they won’t believe me.” Then the Pope said: “Truly I tell thee, the Angel of God stands
    with me and has written the prayers in letters of gold for the consolement of all sinners. If
    a person had committed all the sins in the world, but that the three Prayers shall have been
    read (over him) at his end (death), all his sins will be forgiven him, even though his soul
    was supposed to suffer until the Last Judgement, it will be redeemed (freed).”
    The person who hears them read, he won’t die an unhappy death, also in whose house
    they shall be read. Therefore, take these prayers and carry them into St. Peter’s Basilica
    and lay them in the Chapel named the Assumption of Mary, for certain consolation. The
    person who will be near death, who reads them or hears them read, gains 400 years

indulgence for the days he was supposed to suffer in Purgatory because of his guilt. Also,
who reads this Prayer or hears it read, the hour of his death shall be revealed to him.

  1. An Act Of Contrition
    O my God, I am heartily sorry for all my sins because of them I deserve the eternal pains
    of hell, but most of all because I have offended Thee my God who art all good and
    deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to confess my sins, to
    do penance, to avoid the proximate occasion of sin and never to sin anymore. Amen.

  1. Tips on Prayer
    Your prayers are strongest at the Consecration in Holy Mass (raising of Host and Chalice).
    Each time we look at The Most Blessed Sacrament our place in Heaven is raised forever
    (revealed by Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great).
  2. Prayer to Obtain the Grace of all the World’s Masses
    Eternal Father we humbly offer Thee our poor presence and that of the whole of humanity
    from the beginning to the end of the world at all the Masses that ever have or ever will be
    prayed. We offer Thee all the pains, suffering, prayers, sacrifices, joys and relaxations of
    our lives, in union with those of our dear Lord Jesus here on earth. May the Most Precious
    Blood of Christ, all His blood and wounds and agony save us, through the sorrowful and
    Immaculate Heart of Mary. Amen!
    (This prayer should be prayed daily, and made known.)

  • St. Bonaventure said: “that whoever neglected Our Lady would perish in his sins and
  • would be damned”.
  1. Holy Communion
    Each time we receive Holy Communion our venial sins are forgotten.
    Christ revealed to St. Gertrude the Great that each time one person receives Holy
    Communion, something good happens to every being in Heaven, on earth, and in
    The Cure of Ars said that a Communion well received is worth more than 20,000 NFF
    given to the poor.
    Each time we receive Communion our place in Heaven is raised forever, our stay in
    Purgatory shortened.
    We Should Never Let A Day Pass Without Going To Holy Communion!
    Spiritual Communion
    The value of a spiritual Communion well made is enormous. We can, and should, make
    one frequently. Simply think on Jesus and how much He loves us and how much we love
    Him, then ask Our Blessed Mother to ask Her Divine Son to come into our hearts. We can
    offer these Communions for the interest of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
    noting our special intention!
    After receiving Holy Communion, Our Lord said we should pray:
    “Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, may the whole world burn with love for You!”

  1. A True Letter Of Our Savior Jesus Christ
    Consecrating the Drops of Blood which Our Lord Jesus lost on His way to Calvary.
    Copy of a letter of the Oration found in the Holy Sepulchre of Our Lord Jesus Christ in
    Jerusalem, preserved in a silver box by His Holiness and by the Emporers and Empresses
    of the Christian Faith.
    St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary, with St. Matilda and St. Bridget, wishing to know
    something of the Passion of Jesus Christ, offered fervent and special prayers, upon which
    there appeared to them Our Lord Jesus Christ who spoke to them in the following manner:
    I descended from Heaven to the Earth in order to convert you.
    In olden times, people were religious, and their harvests were abundant; at present, on the
    contrary, they are scanty.
    If you want to reap an abundant harvest you must not work on Sunday, for Sunday you
    must go to Church and pray to God to forgive your sins. He gave you six days in which to
    work and one for rest and devotion and to tender your help to the poor and assist the
    Those people who brawl against My Religion and cast slurs on this Sacred Letter will be
    forsaken by Me.
    On the contrary, those people who shall carry a copy of this letter with them shall be free
    from death by drowning and from sudden death. They shall be free from all contagious
    diseases and lightning; they shall not die without confession, and shall be free from their
    enemies and from the hand of wrongful authority, and from all their slanderers and false
    Women in peril at child-birth will, by keeping this Oration about them, immediately
    overcome the difficulty. In the houses where this Oration is kept, no evil thing will ever
    happen: and forty days before the death of a person who has this Oration about him or
    her, the Blessed Virgin will appear to him or her. So said St. Gregorious.
    To all those faithful who shall recite for three years, each day, 2 Paters, Glorias, and Aves,

in honor of the drops of blood I lost, I will concede the following five graces:
1st The plenary indulgence and remission of your sins.
2nd You will be free from the pains of Purgatory.
3rd If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the
same as if you had completed them.
4th It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for
the Holy Faith.
5th I will descend from Heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives,
until the fourth generation.
Be it known that the number of armed soldiers were 150; those who trailed me while I was
bound were 23. The number of executioners of justice were 83; the blows received on my
head were 150; those on my stomach, 108; kicks on my shoulders, 80. I was led, bound
with cords by the hair, 24 times; spits in the face were 180; I was beaten on the body 6666
times; beaten on the head, 110 times. I was roughly pushed, and at 12 o’clock was lifted
up by the hair; pricked with thorns and pulled by the beard 23 times; received 20 wounds
on the head; thorns of marine junks, 72; pricks of thorns in the head, 110; mortal thorns in
the forhead, 3. I was afterwards flogged and dressed as a mocked king; wounds in the
body, 1000. The soldiers who led me to the Calvary were 608; those who watched me
were 3, and those who mocked me were 1008; the drops of blood which I lost were

The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you!
“Occupy yourself with My interests and I’ll occupy Myself with yours.
(Our Lord to St. Teresa of Avila)
History Of The Devotion To The Infant Of Prague
Devotion to the Infant Jesus is as old as Christianity itself. It ever tends to keep the great
mystery of Our Lord’s birth vividly before us.
A special devotion to the Divine Child originated with the Carmelites in the City of Prague,
Bohemia, in the beginning of the seventeenth century. Princes Polyxedia of Lobkowitz
had received, as a wedding gift from her mother, a statue of the Divine Child, previously
brought from Spain. After the death of her husband, the princes devoted herself to works
of charity and was particularly helpful to the Carmelites in Prague. When in 1628 the
Carmelite Monastery had been reduce to poverty, owing to the ravages of war, the princes
gave her precious statue to the Carmelites, saying:


Her gift was placed in the Carmelite oratory. The words of the princess proved prophetic
for as long as the Carmelites kept up their devotion to the Divine Infant of Prague
everything prospered with them. The Carmelites were later forced to flee form the city and
in the confusion of the war, they were unable to take with them their miraculous statue.
The invaders siezed it, and threw it into a pile of rubbish. In 1635, peace came to Prague
and the Carmelites returned. One of them, Father Cyril, who had previously received great
spiritual help through his devotion to the Infant of Prague, sought the statue, and found it
amidst the rubbish. Overjoyed, he placed the statue again in the oratory. As Father Cyril
was one day praying devoutedly before the statue, he heard a voice saying: “HAVE

Startled by these words, Father Cyril examined the statue and upon drawing aside the
mantle covering it, he found that both hands of the statue were broken off. The hands
were restored to the statue through the generosity of a client of the Divine Child. Once
more, peace and prosperity returned to the Carmelites.
Devotion to the Divine Child had always been practiced by the Carmelites, for through their
Mother, Mary, this Divine Child had come to the world. St. Theresa of Jesus practice
particular devotion to the Divine Child. St. Therese, the Little Flower, was also a most
fervent venerator.

    face I humbly kneel and with burning soul pray and beseech
    Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and
    charity, true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of
    amendment, while I contemplate with great love and tender pity
    Thy Five Wounds, pondering over them within me and calling to

    From the malignant enemy, defend me.
    In the hour of my death, call me.

These two invocations were taught by Our Lord to Sr. M. Martha Chambon, deceased, in
the Visitation of Chambery, France, March 21, 1907. The Sister received from Our Lord a
double “Misson”: constantly to invoke the HOLY WOUNDS herself, and to revive this
devotion in the world.

Blessed Virgin Mary to Saint Dominic, “One Day through the Rosary and Scapular I will
save the World”
“Whosoever dies clothed in this (scapular) shall not suffer eternal fire.

This is Mary’s Promise made July 16, 1261 to Saint Simon Stock.
The devils revealed to Francis of Yepes, the brother of St. John of the Cross, that three
things especially tormented them. The first is the Name of Jesus; the second, the Name of
Mary, and the third, the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. “Take off that habit,”
they cried to him, “which snatches so many souls from us. All those clothed in it die
piously and escape us.”
Your SCAPULAR, then should take on deep meaning for you. It is a rich present brought
down from Heaven by

“Wear it devoutly and perseveringly,” she says to each soul, “it is my garment. To be
clothed in it means you are continually thinking of me, and I in turn, am always thinking of
you and helping you to secure eternal life.”

Known as the F LOS CARMELI, the following prayer has for seven centuries been called a
prayer to the Blessed Mother which has never been known to fail in obtaining her powerful

  1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the rosary, shall receive signal
  2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite

    and defeat heresies.
  4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant

    sanctify themselves by this means.

  14. All who recite the rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ.

15.Devotion of my rosary is a great sign of predestination.

+PATRICK J. HAYES. D.D.. Archbishop of New York

WHY the daily rosary?
Our Lady has 117 titles. She selected this title at Fatima:
“I am the Lady of the Rosary”.
St. Francis de Sales said the greatest method of praying
IS – Pray the Rosary.
St. Thomas Aquinas preached 40 straight days in Rome,
Italy on just the Hail Mary.
St. John Vianney, patron of priests, was seldom seen without a rosary in his hand.
“The rosary is the scourge of the devil” – Pope Adrian VI.
“The rosary is a treasure of graces” – Pope Paul V.
Padre Pio the stigmatic priest said:

“The rosary is THE WEAPON”
Pope Leo XIII wrote 9 encyclicals on the rosary.

Pope John XXIII spoke 38 times about our Lady and the Rosary. He prayed 15
decades daily.
St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort wrote:
“The rosary is the most powerful weapon to touch the
Heart of Jesus, Our Redeemer, who so loves His Mother.”
If you wish to obtain a favor: –

Pray THE “54-day ROSARY NOVENA”…
Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas – 27 days of petition;
Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas – 27 days of thanksgiving.
Will you give 1% of 1440 minutes each day to God?
If so, pray the daily rosary in 15 minutes – 1% of 24 hours.
Later on, give 3% and pray entire 15 decade rosary.
Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries.

“Why Should I Go To Mass Every Day?”
“The Mass is the most perfect form of prayer!”
(Pope Paul VI)

For each Mass we hear with devotion, Our Lord sends a saint to comfort us at death
(revelation of Christ to St. Gertrude the great).
Padre Pio, the stigmatic priest, said, the world could exist more easily without the sun than
without the Mass.
The Cure’ d’ Ars, St. Jean Vianney said, if we knew the value of the Mass we would die of
A great doctor of the Church, St. Anselm, declares that a single Mass offered for oneself
during life may be worth more than a thousand celebrated for the same intention after
death. St. Leonard of Port Maurice supports this statement by saying that one Mass
before death may be more profitable than many after it.
“The Holy Mass would be of greater profit if people had it offered in their lifetime, rather
than having it celebrated for the relief of their souls after death.” (Pope Benedict XV).
Once, St. Teresa was overwhelmed with God’s Goodness and asked Our Lord, “How can I
thank you?” Our Lord replied, “ATTEND ONE MASS.”
The Blessed Virgin Mary once told Her faithful servant Alain: “My Son so loves those who
assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that, if it were necessary He would die for them as
many times as they’ve heard Masses.”
(Page 107, last paragraph of “Explication Du Saint Sacrifice De La Messe” parle R.P. Martin de Cochem Friere – Mineur Capucin.)

    Front Back
    Prayer to the Shoulder Wound of Jesus
    It is related in the annals of Clairvaux that St. Bernard asked Our Lord which was His
    greatest unrecorded suffering and Our Lord answered: “I had on My Shoulder, while I bore
    My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound, which was more painful than the
    others and which is not recorded by men. Honor this Wound with thy devotion and I will

grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through Its virtue and merit. And in regard to all those
who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins and will no longer
remember their mortal sins.”
This revelation and promise of Our Dear Savior is another proof of His unlimited mercy.
You are urged to say these prayers daily and to promulgate this prayer on a continuous
basis, so that others may share in this blessing.

The Prayer
O Loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most
Sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy Cross, which so tore
Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy Bones as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater than any other
Wound of Thy Most Blessed Body. I adore Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful; I praise and
glorify Thee and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and painful Wound, beseeching
Thee by that exceeding pain and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross to be merciful
to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and to lead me on towards
Heaven along the Way of Thy Cross. Amen.
Imprimatur: Thomas D. Beven, Bishop of Springfield, Ma.
Pope Eugenius III, at the earnest request of St. Bernard, has granted three thousand years
Indulgence to all who with a contrite heart, recite the Lord’s Prayer and Hail Mary 3 times,
in honor of the Wound on the Shoulder of Our Blessed Redeemer.

  1. Invocations In Honor Of
    The Holy Wounds Of Our Lord Jesus Christ
    Eternal Father I offer Thee the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ to heal the wounds of our
    souls. My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of Thy Sacred Wounds.
    Sister Mary Martha Chambon, a humble lay Sister of the Visitation Order of Chambery.
    France, who died in the odor of sanctity, March 21st, 1907, received these two invocations
    from Our Lord Himself, as she affirmed, and with them a double MISSION to adore and
    invoke the Sacred Wounds unceasingly and to revive this devotion in the hearts of
    Our Lord said:
    “The soul who during life has honored and studied the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
    and has offered them to the Eternal Father for the souls in Purgatory, will be accompanied
    at the moment of death by the Holy Virgin and the angels; and Our Lord on the Cross all
    brilliant in glory will receive her and crown her.”
    “Jesus, Mary, I love You, Save Souls.
  2. Pray For Souls In Purgatory There are more souls released from purgatory during the Consecration of the Mass than at any time. Christmas is the day of the year when most souls are delivered; then feast days of Our Lord, Our Lady and great saints. Souls receive much grace from prayers offered for them on their birthdays, day of baptism, anniversary of death. The more we work for Poor Souls on earth the more others will pray for us, the more merciful will Christ be with us when were in purgatory. Our Lady asked that we pray very much for the poor souls; that we pray: 5 I believe in God . . . 1 Hail Holy Queen . . . 1 Our Father . . . 1 Hail Mary . . . 1 Glory be to the Father . . . 1 Requiem (Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them and may they rest in peace. Amen!) Our Lady said that if we pray the prayers “we’ll deliver so many souls, so many souls!” “The Holy wounds are the treasure of treasures for the souls in Purgatory.” BIBLE – 2 Machabees, Chapter 12. Verse 46: “it is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.” An indulgence, applicable ONLY to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted when the faithful devoutly visit a cemetery and pray for the departed. 25. The Spiritual Communion By a rescript of November 24. 1922 the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences approved the following formula for a spiritual communion: “O Jesus I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come nevertheless and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen. Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed. An indulgence of 500 days, if thrice repeated. (129 The Raccolta 1944). It was the Cure of Ars who said, “A spiritual communion acts on the soul as blowing does on a cinder-covered fire which was about to go out. Whenever you feel your love of God growing cold, quickly make a spiritual communion.”
