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 -





SPIRITUAL BATTLES

The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary!


WE DO NOT ABANDON OUR MOTHER CHURCH   



Our Lord died on the Cross on the Mount Calvary

and

Our Lord ascended from the Mount Olives.


Let us walk up the hill but come down a Mountain...



Keep praying your daily Rosary

A PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN,

"HELP OF CHRISTIANS."


Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God and our Mother, Mary,

thou seest how, from every quarter, the devil and the world are assailing the Catholic faith,

in which we purpose, by God's mercy, to live and to die, that we may gain eternal glory.


O Help of Christians,

renew thy former victories for the safety of thy children.

They intrust to thy care their firm purpose never to belong to any gathering of heretics or sectaries;

O thou who art all holy, offer up our resolutions to thy divine Son,

and obtain from him the graces necessary to keep us true to them unto the end.

Console the visible Head of the Church,

help the Catholic Episcopate,

protect the clergy and the faithful who hail thee as Queen,

hasten, by the power of thy intercession,

the day which shall see all nations gathered together about the Supreme Pastor.

Amen.


Maria, Auxilium Christianorum, ora pro nobis.

 


The Raccolta, ed. 1902. #75. p. 354.

His Holiness, Leo XIII., by a rescript of the S. Congr. of Indulgences, December 20, 1890.

Never let a good crisis go to Waste!

Pray with a sincere soul, with a pure heart, in the certainty of being heard and answered.

Ask her – she who is the Help of Christians, Auxilium Christianorum – to defeat the forces of the Enemy;

ask her – she who is terrible as an army set in battle array (Song 6:10) – to grant the victory to the forces of Good

and to inflict a humiliating defeat on the forces of Evil.


Towards the end of our Step-by-Step Rosary, we always pray for the Popes intentions, but what are his intentions?


Popes come and go, but the Church bestow.


Some people may have difficulties to pray for the Popes intentions, if we do not know the intentions of the Pope, in particularly in todays world with the Pope introducing the Amazon idols in 2019 and wanting to close down the Latin rite.

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.


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.

Ámen

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

Amen

THE STEP-BY-STEP ROSARY

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."


1. PRE-PRAYERS


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.

 


2. THE ROSARY


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. 

 


3. LEONINE PRAYERS


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


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


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.

 


KEEP MY LAWS AND MY JUDGEMENTS

Leviticus 20:22


BETRAYED BY A KISS

“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”.

Ps 55:12-14

.

BREAK DOWN RESISTANCE

“Those I love have turned against me”

Job 19:19

"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



RESURRECTION

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."

Ps.65:1-20
