Battlefield Step-by-Step Holy Hour Rosary
- when churches close its doors, we can pray the Holy Hour right outside as the Church becomes the Tabernacle -
The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary!
To protect our website and prayers:
Sancte Michael Archángele, defénde nos in prœlio;
contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.
Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;
tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis,
Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,
qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,
divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –
by the Divine Power of God –
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls
please use our Step-by-Step version keeping Our Lady company
while meditating the actual mysteries for a total of 15 minutes according to her wish Dec. 10, 1925.
"recite five decades of the rosary, and keep me company for 15 minutes
while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."
Instead of "just do the Rosary" we offer people some Warm-up prayers to prepare our mind and heart before the actual Rosary commence. It can vary and it is a optional beginning for the user. Prayers to St. Michael is always at the start - for protection. We may have some penitent prayers and/or prayers such Memorare, and prayers to St. Joseph and Our Lady.
The Actual Mystery texts are included. Not just the Headline or just the bible reference.
We include the texts as well as the reference to the scripcture to increase the medication.
There are a few Step-by-Step Rosaries within our group which include the Leonine prayers right before Salve Regina, to include the Salve Regina prayer at the connecting medallion of the Rosary.
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."
Some of our Step-by-Step Rosary's offers an optional ending by for example praying the Litany of Loreto.
This 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.
In other cases we offer a weekly variation of litanies.
“If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me, I could hide.
But it is you, a man like myself,
my companion, my close friend,
with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers”.
“Those I love have turned against me”
"and stout young men
standing upon the walls
made a vigorous resistance:
and in this place there were many engines of war, and a provision of darts."
2 Macc 12:27
Our natural destination is Hell.
The Damned never see God.
Unto the end,
a canticle of a psalm of the resurrection. Shout with joy to God, all the earth,
"Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me."
