Holy Hour Rosary


The joy over people visiting our website is "not" only because we are happy that we have visitors, but also that we know that praying by yourself may feel lonely. We have received letters from people who "wants more" which is exiting.




In each of our Step-by-Step Rosary, we always pray for the Popes intentions. It is seldom mentioned of what are the papal intentions? 

Popes come and go, but the Church bestow.


We decided to find out, in the Raccolta, what the intentions of the Pope are.

PRAYER ACCORDING TO THE POPES INTENTION

The Raccolta, ed. 1910


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.


The Commander Cross Step-by-Step Rosary developed its various Rosary versions to allow users to gradually grow and develop while praying the Rosary. You may be a beginner, or you are interested in the Latin texts or you know how to pray the Rosary but you just want to read the actual mysteries.


We structured it so you have

  • several pre-prayers,
  • the actual Rosary,
  • followed by several prayers to close the Rosary. 


It has been mentioned before but it vital to find a structure of when to take the time to pray during the day. Our standard Rosary prayer is about 25-30 minutes and in due time, you realise that you have spent some 45 minutes, with some pre-prayers, the Rosary, a few final-prayers and maybe finishing up with the "Lithany of the Day".

Maybe you only have 15 minutes while being in a subway train going to or from work - and you may want to start right away with the Rosary, pray 2-3 decades - which is better than nothing.


The Commander Cross "Straight to the Point Rosary" is a shorter version of our Step-by-Step format. It goes quite quick so it can be done at any time available. 



The Commander Cross "Holy Hour Rosary"  is based on a request, or a call, from Father Rick Heilman at the US Grace Force, about daily prayers for Members of Auxilium Christianorum. It is developed for the purpose of Catholics being locked out from our Church, and to be used as a Holy Hour prayer session. The idea was also to pray outside a church building in case the building was locked.



The Commander Cross "Knights in Obedience Crusade Rosary" have most prayers in Latin which is the Church language, and a language the Evil one hates.


Latin is also the language that unite all Catholics in prayers, worldwide.

Evil does not like us to be in unity, but disarrayed. 

If there is already one language that unites us in prayers, why then have 100 local languages praying what you hope to be a correct prayer. This became obvious on March 25, 2022, with the prayer to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

Suddenly, there was information about the English text not being in conformity with the Russian, Portoguese, Spanish, Arabic and Italian versions.



This is the main reason why include Latin in almost all of our Step-by-Step versions.


Our extensive research has shown cases where texts are missing in other languages. This may be due to poor translations skills, previous poor translations, poor langueage skills or trends in the society.



In 2019, Bishop Athanasius Schneider asked for more knights in the spirtual battle.

The Commander Cross Knights in Obedience Crusade Rosary is the Rosary for the soldiers of Christ,

the knights who know that they are in Obedience to God!


The spirtual battle is already here.

- in God we trust, Resist the Devil -


It is time to buckle up, if you have not done it yet.

Be strong in God's Grace.

THE STEP-BY-STEP ROSARY

1. PRE-PRAYERS


Warm-up prayers to prepare our mind and heart before the actual Rosary. Prayers to St. Michael, penitent prayers, Memorare, and prayers to St. Joseph and Our Lady.

 


2. THE ROSARY


The Actual Mystery texts are included. Not just the Headline or just the bible reference.

The mysteries, scriptures, are all a short daily reading of the Bible.

3. LEONINE PRAYERS


The Penitent's Rosary include the Leonine prayers right before Salve Regina, to include the Salve Regina prayer at the connecting medallion of the Rosary


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.”


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.

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.

It is a Divine Faith, it is not a human Faith.

We do not leave the Church because the Church is our Mother.
