- Daily Rosary Through the Season of Advent -

Penance, preparation, and sacrifice



"The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ,

Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way:

The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make ready the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 

It was John who baptized in the wilderness and preached the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins."

(Mark 1:1-10).

THE ARMOR OF GOD

Eph. 6:10-18


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the might of his strength. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil;

for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against bands of wicked spirits in the heavenly regions.

Wherefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having wrought out all things, to stand.


Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having your feet shod with the readiness of the gospel of peace; over all taking up the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 

And receive the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; through every prayer and supplication, praying at every season in spirit, and in it being watchful in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints,


Prayer for Protection

SAINT PATRICK’S LORICA 


I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation.


I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.


I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In the predictions of prophets,
In the preaching of apostles,
In the faith of confessors,
In the innocence of holy virgins,
In the deeds of righteous men.


I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The firmness of rock.


I arise today, through
God’s strength to pilot me,
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near.


I summon today
All these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel and merciless power
that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul;
Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me an abundance of reward.


Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

MEMORARE - PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

Memorare, Coeleste Palmetum 1866

 

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come;

before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

despise not my petitions,

but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen

MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo,

quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia,

tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum.

ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Amen.

"with contrite heart and devotion"

The Raccolta, ed. 1910., #49

I give thee my heart.

Amen


Optional:

Prayer to the Eucharistic Heart.

For daily recitation and half- hour’s adoration once a week. I, II.

The Raccolta, ed. 1910. #170. Leo XIII, Br. June 2, 1902 .


O EUCHARISTIC Heart, O sovereign love of our LORD JESUS, who hast instituted the august Sacrament, in order to dwell here below with us and to give to our souls thy Flesh as food and thy Blood as drink, we confidently trust, O LORD JESUS, in the supreme love which instituted the most holy Eucharist; and here, in the presence of this Victim, it is just that we should adore, confess, and exalt this love, as the great store-house of the life of thy Church.

This love is an urgent invitation for us, as though Thou didst say to us: "See how I love you! giving you my Flesh as food, and my Blood as drink; I desire by this union to excite your charity, I desire to unite you to myself, I desire to effect the transformation of your souls into my crucified Self, I who am the Bread of eternal life.


Give me then your hearts, live in my life, and you shall live in GOD." We recognise, O LORD, that such is the appeal of thy Eucharistic Heart, and we thank Thee for it, and we desire earnestly to respond to it. Grant us the grace to be keenly alive to this supreme love, with which, before thy Passion, Thou didst invite us to receive and feed upon thy sacred Body. Print deeply on our souls the firm determination to respond faithfully to this invitation.


Give us devotion and reverence whereby we may honour and receive worthily the gift of thy supreme love, and of thy Eucharistic Heart. Grant that we may thus be able, with thy grace, to celebrate profitably the remembrance of thy Passion, to make reparation for our offences and our coldness, to nourish and increase our love for Thee, and to keep ever living within our hearts this seed of a blessed immortality.

Amen.

The Agony of Jesus in the Garden - Iesu in Horto Olivarum

Mark 14:32-42


(We do the Sign of the Cross in    Faith,   Hope   and   Love    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

They come to a place, which is named Gethsemane; and he says to his disciples:

Sit here till I pray.

 

He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be distressed and in anguish, and said to them:

My soul is encompassed with sorrow even to death: remain here and keep watch.


And going forward a little he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him; and he said:

Abba, Father, all things are possible for thee; remove this cup from me: yet not what I will, but what thou want.

 

He returned and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter:

Simon, sleepest thou? hadst thou not strength to watch one hour? Watch and pray, pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

 

And again, he went away and prayed, saying the same words.

And, when he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy;

and they knew not what to answer him. He comes back the third time and says to them:

Sleep the remaining time, and rest?

 

it is enough; the hour has come:

Behold, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of sinners.

Mark 15:1, Matt 27:17, 19, 21, 24-26


(We do the Sign of the Cross in    Faith,   Hope   and   Love    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

1And immediately in the morning, the chief priests holding consultation, with the elders and the scribes, and the whole Council. They bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate.


2And Pilate asked him: Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him: Thou sayest.

 

3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4Pilate again asked him:

Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee,

 

5But Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.


Detail: Ecce Homo,Jean-Pierre Norblin, 1774. The Art of Christianity Collection. Used with Permission.

6At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose. 7And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. 17Pilate said to them:

Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?

 

19And while he sat on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying: Have nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered much this day in a dream because of him.

 

20The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd that they should ask for Barabbas, that Pilate should rather release Barabbas to them. 11The chief priests instigated the crowd  to have Jesus destroyed.


21And the governor said to them: Which of the two will you that I release to you?

They said: Barabbas.

 

12And Pilate again answered and said to them:

What then will you that I shall do with him whom who is called Christ?

 

13They again cried out: Crucify him.

14But Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done?

But they cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

24And Pilate seeing that nothing avails, but rather that a tumult is rising, took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying:


I am innocent of the blood of this man: see you to it.

15And so Pilate,

willing to satisfy the multitude, released Barabbas,

and handed over Jesus, after he had scourged him, to be crucified.

26And as they led him away, they lay hold on Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country, they laid the cross on him, that he might bear it after Jesus.

 

17And bearing the cross, he went forth to that place called Calvary, or in Hebrew called Golgotha.

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children; 29for behold, there are coming days in which they shall say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that did not give suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall on us, and to the hills: Cover us; 31for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

The Crucifixion of Jeus - Iesu in Cruce Moritur

(We do the Sign of the Cross in    Faith,   Hope   and   Love    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

33at the place, called Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers, one on the right and the other on the left of Jesus.

 

34Jesus said: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

The soldiers mocked him and were dividing his clothing among them, they cast lots.


35The people stood looking on;


31In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said:

Others he saved, himself he cannot save. Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.


38there was also a superscription over him:

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 

39And one of the evildoers who were hanged blasphemed him, saying:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


40But the other, answering, rebuked him and said:

Do not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art in the same condemnation?

We indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of what we have done;

but this man has done nothing evil.


42Then he said: Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.


43Jesus said to him:

Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise. 


44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 

46 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said:

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.


And saying this, he gave up the ghost.


45 the sun was darkened,

and the veil of the temple was rent of two, from the top to the bottom,

in the midst as the earth quaked.

THE LEONINE PRAYERS


The Rosary is a perfect wreath. It gives us Hope!  You have now reached the connecting medallion where we through our Hymn, Salve Regina, unite the intentions and prayers.

The Leonine prayers are an add-on, as requested by Pope Leo XIII in trouble times for protection of the Church in 1884.

It starts starts with 3 x Ave Maria, followed by the hymn Salve Regina, and the prayer to the Archangel St. Michael (added in 1886).

Pope Pius XI decreed, in 1930, that these prayers continue to be prayed for the freedom of the Church.

Pope Francis I encouraged, on Sept. 27, 2020, the devotion to St. Michael the Archangel.
