The Assumption The Mass Union with Christ View description ▼ "By the grace of God I am what I am and His grace in me has not been void." This passage from today's epistle aptly summarizes the life of St. Paul. But it should also hold true for each one of us. And it is especially applicable to Our Lady, in whom we see the grandeur and effectiveness of God's grace when man cooperates with God. The mysteries of Our Lady, which show her always full of grace and increasing in grace throughout her life, also reflect what God desires for each of us. The goal of Our Lady's Assumption, and of Holy Mass, and of our existence is an ever deeper union with God. August 13, 2023 by Fr. Michael Rodríguez
To Undergo a Mystical Death View description ▼ One who "walks in the Spirit of God" is not guided by the world or governed by his natural likes and inclinations, The Holy Ghost is always opposed to our three-fold concupiscence: lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, of the pride of life. On a practical level, if I am not fighting constantly against these, then I am not being led by the Spirit of God. The Mass is meant to help us overcome this fallen tendency. Yet one must strive to have the same dispositions Christ had upon the cross. One must deny himself and freely do penance to satisfy for sin; this is a mystical death and it is active participation at Mass. September 25, 2022 by Fr. Michael Rodríguez
Resist the Cultural Genocide in Our Church View description ▼ Ireland, the land of saints and scholars, suffered under Britain terrible persecution meant to destroy their culture. The main aim of the French Revolution was to de-Christianize the nation. Cultural genocide is the effort to eradicate a people by destroying their culture. The modernists did not want another Church, they wanted a different Church. Catholic tradition was destroyed not by an invading army but from within. Now, we must rediscover and reestablish tradition. Abhor  innovation and have a holy stubbornness. Show you will not surrender Catholic Tradition (in liturgy, spirituality, morality, catechesis, etc.). We must be willing to fight for our inheritance - to keep the Faith. September 17, 2023 by Fr. Simplicius
Making a Spiritual Communion View description ▼ This is the first episode of a pilot series. It is an informal talk I had with my son as I prepared him for his First Holy Communion. We discussed how to make a Spiritual Communion. If this is of spiritual benefit to you, may God be praised! If you have feedback, or ideas for future episodes in this series on catechesis by a father for his children, please email us. September 10, 2023 by Mr. David Rodríguez

A Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

The prayer from the sermon 'Pierced with Thorns' given on 15 September 2018

O my afflicted mother, Queen of martyrs and of sorrows, thou didst bitterly weep over thy Son who died for my salvation. But what will thy tears avail me if I am lost? By the merits then of thy sorrows, obtain for me true contrition for my sins and a real amendment of life. 

Oh my Mother, the most Sorrowful of all mothers, I will not leave thee alone to weep. No, I will accompany thee with my tears. This grace I now ask of thee: obtain that I may always bear in mind and always have a tender devotion towards the passion of Jesus and thy sorrows, that the remainder of my days may thus be spent in weeping over thy sufferings, my own Sweet Mother, and those of my Redeemer. Amen.

A SPIRITUAL COMMUNION: My Jesus, I firmly believe that Thou art present – Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity – in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief. Lord, increase my faith. I love Thee above all things and desire Thee in my soul. Yet my love is weak and inconstant, strengthen my love for Thee evermore. Since I cannot now receive Thee under the sacramental veil, I beseech Thee, with a heart full of love and longing, to come spiritually into my soul. As though Thou were already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee; Thou in me and I in Thee, in time and in eternity, in Mary and Her Immaculate Heart. Amen.

Restoring the beauty, majesty, and truth of our traditional Catholic Faith all over the world.
