“Dear Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world?”

In the year 1214 Saint Dominic, seeing that the gravity of people’s sins was hindering the conversion of the Albigensians, withdrew into a forest near Toulouse where he prayed unceasingly for three days and three nights. During this time he did nothing but weep and do harsh penances in order to appease the anger of Almighty God. He used his discipline so much that his body was lacerated, and finally he fell into a coma.

At this point Our Lady appeared to him, accompanied by three angels, and she said:

“Dear Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world?”

“Oh, my Lady,” answered Saint Dominic, “you know far better than I do because next to your Son Jesus Christ you have always been the chief instrument of our salvation.”

Then Our Lady replied:

“I want you to know that, in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter.”

So he arose, comforted, and burning with zeal, for the conversion of the people in that district he made straight for the Cathedral. At once unseen angels rang the bells to gather the people together and Saint Dominic began to preach.

At the very beginning of his sermon an appalling storm broke, out, the earth shook, the sun was darkened, and there was so much thunder and lightning that all were very much afraid. Even greater was their fear when looking at a picture of Our Lady exposed in a prominent place they saw her raise her arms to heaven three times to call down God’s vengeance upon them if they failed to be converted, to amend their lives, and seek the protection of the Holy Mother of God.

God wished, by means of these supernatural phenomena, to spread the new devotion of the Holy Rosary and to make it more widely known.

The “Flying” Saint? ~ St. Joseph of Curpertino

Prayer to St. Jospeh St. Joseph of Cupertino, you who loved Mary, The Mother of God so much, that this love overflowed into your body, thus allowing you to “rise above the things of this earth” and levitate or float in the air just by thinking of Mary, or her son Jesus. This is how you became known as “The Flying Saint.” Truly as St. Augustine says “Our Love is our weight.” you then Oh St. Joseph of Cupertino, did not allow the love of the things of this world weigh you down, rather your heart and mind was fixed […]

Divine Mercy & The Dying

One of the best and most powerful things you can do for a loved one or a soul that you know is dying… is to PRAY THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY for them. Listen to the words of Jesus to Saint Faustina on the power of this prayer for the dying soul. Pray as much as you can for the dying. By your entreaties [that is, insistent prayers], obtain for them trust in My mercy, because they have most need of trust, and have it the least. Be assured that the grace of eternal salvation for certain souls in their […]

Need to BREAK ADDICTION? ~ Try this simple prayer each day.

The POWER of the Hail Mary There was a young man in Rome who was burdened with sins of impurity and who was a victim of vicious habits. He went to Fr. Nicholas Zucchi to confession. The confessor received him kindly and assured him that devotion to Our Lady could deliver him from the miserable habits to which he was addicted. He therefore imposed this penance on him: to say one Hail Mary to the Blessed Virgin every morning on rising and every evening on going to bed until his next confession. While doing that he was to offer Mary […]

Eucharistic Miracle: Lab confirms the impossible

Laboratory analyses confirm that the structure of the cardiac muscle fibers and the structure of the bread are intertwined in a way impossible to reproduce by human means. Every day, on the altars of Catholic churches around the world, the greatest miracle possible takes place: the transformation of bread and wine into the true Body and Blood of Christ.Nonetheless, when we receive Communion, we can only touch its true nature with our faith, because our senses only perceive bread and wine, physically unaltered by the consecration. What are the implications, then, of the Eucharistic event in Sokolka, Poland? It took […]
