COMMANDER  CROSS ROSARY


a Step-by-Step Rosary


We Do NOT Abandon Our Mother Church  


- important call to All men  -

Pray the Rosary!


The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.



Our Step-by-Step Rosary Community continue to commit to the Nine-Month Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe, according to the request from Cardinal Leo Burke. His Eminence calls the faithful to join him in praying a nine-months novena seeking Mary’s intercession beginning on March 12 and culminating on the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Dec. 12. He asks for Our Lady of Guadalupe's maternal care and protection amid the forces of sin.

Our Lady's participation in the Paschal mystery and in Pentecost with which the Church begins.


“The darkness of sin seems so great. But Our Lord has not called us to fear! Evil cannot approach the power of God’s grace.
Sin cannot prevent Our Lord’s healing mercy from reaching those who repent and seek it. And nothing can diminish the care and protection of Our Lady for us, which remain as strong today as they were 500 years ago.”


Here are the messages and reflections of Cardinal Burke.


Keep on praying the Rosary:



The Commander Cross Rosary team will include his requested prayer into our Step-by-Step Rosaries as a way to make it easier for all users who participate.

If you are using our Rosary set up, and you have already prayed the novena, you can of course just continue.

Here are the messages and reflections of Cardinal Burke.



Let us all pray that every Catholic in your own country, return to Our Lady!



There will be false Christs and false prophets,

who will rise up and shew great signs and wonders,

so that if it were possible, even the elect would be deceived.

Matt 24:24

"But there is no way of casting out such spirits as this except by prayer and fasting"

Matt 17:20



Our aim is to do four fasts per year, which are the following:


  • 40-days St. Martin Fast.
  • 40-days Lent.
  • 20-days St. John the Baptist Fast.
  • 20-days Assumption Fast.



And, we believe that it will be a good complement to the nine-month-novena of Cardinal Burke.

Remember that if you fail once, just keep on going.





“For never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic or be led astray by the devil.

This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood.”

The family that prays together, stays together.


If a household do not have a "head of family", which is one man's obligation, who is actually the "head of family"?



It has been suggested that we at Commander Cross Rosary try to give the single mothers a focus, in particularly concerning the ones who have boys or young men at home. 


  • How can we assist single-mothers with young men in their home, and how can we try to reach these women to assist them - or more so, assist their young sons.
  • How important is the Rosary in this matter?


What happens when the husband/father no longer is around? 

It is "always" easy to tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to hear.


Now, we will need some time to put this into focus and it is a good opportunity while we continue to pray the requested Novena to our Lady of Guadalupe.


Our signature "Step-by-Step Rosary" encompasses the traditional 15 mysteries, accompanied by historical Christian artworks depicting each scriptural scene. Religious art, language, and music are powerful tools in the battle against evil as they forge a connection between ourselves and God and serve as a constant reminder of the goodness in the world.




Our current Step-by-Step Rosary community offers the Rosary in eleven languages; English, Czech, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Ukrainian.

Not all versions are online, as they may be under a final local touch to complete each Rosary.


Father Chad Ripperger had recently an interesting speech in the St. Patrick's Cathedral where he said that the top-exorcists in the USA estimate that about 25% of the adult population is diabolical obsessed. The diabolical oppression is also on the rise!

St. Patrick Cathedral was under a sacrilege attack (Feb 15, 2024) and the cathedral ought to be exorcised - just like many churches around the world.

All responsible bishop's need to wake up and to enter all their churches and slam their crosier's into the ground and chase demons away. 



We, men and head of families, we need to make sure our houses and family members are protected.  This is our duty as a man and as the the head of the household. Make sure you have proper blessed gear; such as :


  • Medals of your choice (St. Benedict and Miraculous medal is a good start ...). It may be a neclace, attached to your Rosary.
  • Rosaries,
  • Holy salt (pref. vigil of Epiphany) but salt can be exorcised and blessed all through the year. It is apparently stronger if it exorcised and blessed on the vigil of Epiphany due to January 5 being linked to the Baptism of Jesus. 
  • Holy water (pref. vigil of Epiphany). - see above.
  • Blessed incence (myrrh or francincense, pref. Epiphany). - just like above, it can be blessed all year around but the three Magis came with gold, myrrh, and frankincense.
  • Blessed candles. The candles should be blessed on Candlemas but can be blessed all year around. It should be beeswax but any candle works, as long as it is not electric or paraffin.



In 2020/2021, we started a project making sure that there was frankincense available to all who wanted. We try to make sure that as many as possible join on the Vigil of Epiphany (Jan 6) and Epiphany (Jan 7) and if they had no incense, they could purchase beforehand or were given (once it is blessed, no transaction can occur as the transaction breaks the blessing).  


If you attend a traditional Latin Mass, you are fully aware that there is a difference between a TLM-priest blessing your Rosary and a Novus Ordo blessing.
This goes also with the medals attached to your Rosary, not to mention icons. .

The St. Benedict medal is exorcised and blessed. Each medal on your Rosary is blessed according to which medal is included as well as the Rosary is blessed by itself.


(We sponsor our local priest with myrrh and frankincense).



  • Religious art helps us to visualize the stories of our faith and contemplate the mysteries of God.
  • Sacred language enables us to connect with the traditions of our faith and engage in profound and meaningful prayer.
  • Sacred music, as an integral part of the solemn liturgy, participates in its general purpose, which is the glory of God and the sanctification. It empowers our soul, and offer praise to God.


Gregorian chant, the only chant that the Catholic Church has inherited from the ancient fathers, is considered as the supreme model of sacred music. All are powerful weapons that can help you to overcome darkness.



We seek refuge and come to Jesus, Boetius A. Bolswert, 1620. ©The Art of Christianity Collection, inv. nr AP00251.


We are now in a diabolical dissorientation where everything now is an up-side-down structure. We have the advantage that we can seek refuge at the foot of the Cross of our Lord.

There is a thick smoke-screen in place, building a new distorted order, where the the seven deadly sins are in place instead of the seven virtues.  The new world order is rather a new world in dis-order


The attack on the Church, occurs from several angles and in particularly from the enemy of our enemy. Remember that God has a plan and can and most likely will chastice us. But, we have trained for several years now to be the soldier of Christ and to be in the service of our Lady.


The sound of silence or more so, the silence is deafening from the hierarchy and each cardinal, bishop and priest will have to face it when the days come meeting our creator, like all of us will. Bishops need to break the spells keeping them afraid.


Their job is to save souls ... but they risk their own eternity by keeping quiet.


 


PRAYER ACCORDING TO THE POPES INTENTION

The Raccolta, ed. 1910, #23.



There are people who, today, have difficulties of praying for the Popes intentions - but - few knows of what the intentions actually are:



"The Pope’s intention always includes the following objects:



i. The progress of the Faith and triumph of the Church.
ii. Peace and union among Christian Princes and Rulers.
iii. The conversion of sinners.
iv. The uprooting of heresy.



These intentions may be fittingly recalled and prayed for after Communion, or at the visit;
but a general intention of praying according to the mind of the Pope is sufficient ; and any prayers may be used which are not already of obligation, e.g., the Little Hours of a priests Office.  (July 12, 1847; May 29, 1841.)"



THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL PRAYER


English:

O MARY, conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse to thee.


Latin:

O Maria, sine labe concépta,

ora pro nobis qui ad Te confúgimus.


or


O Maria sine labe concépta,

ora pro nobis, qui confúgimus ad Te.



We have already been in the catacombs for quite some time...
