The Jesus Prayer - The
most holy name of Jesus - The name above all names
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God,
have mercy on me, a poor sinner.
This simple invocation of faith developed in
the tradition of prayer under many forms in East and West. the
most usual formulation, transmitted by the spiritual writers of
the Sinai, Syria, and Mt. Athos, is the invocation, "Lord Jesus
Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners." It combines the
Christological hymn of Philippians 2:6-11 with the cry of the
publican and the blind men begging for light.By it the heart is
opened to human wretchedness and the Savior's mercy. (Catechsim
of The Catholic Church, 2667)
The invocation of the holy namJesus is the
se of implest way of praying always. When the holy name is
repeated often by a humbly attentive heart, the prayer is not
lost by heaping up empty phrases,but holds fast to the word and
"brings forth fruit with patience.This prayer is possible at all
times because it is not one occupation among others but the only
occupation: that of loving God, which animates and transfigures
every action in Christ Jesus.
(Catechsim of The Catholic Church, 2668)
Kyrie Eleison: This phrase is the Greek
translation of "Lord have mercy." in English.
Kyrie Eleison; Lord, have mercy;
Christe Eleison; Christ, have mercy;
Kyrie Eleison. Lord, have mercy.
This hymn is a shortened version of the Jesus Prayer, "Lord
Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."
Prayer On The Precious Blood
The Virgin Mary appeared to an unbaptized,
young teenage man named Barnabus in Nigeria, Africa.
The Virgin Mary said to Barnabus "If you want
to know how to pray well and to please my son Jesus, say this
prayer 500 times a day."
"Most Precious Blood Of Jesus Christ, Save
Us And The Whole World"
*If you do this prayer going around your
rosary beads 10 times, you will have said this prayer 500 times.
Jesus, Mary, I love you
Our Lord Jesus Christ said to Sister Maria Consolata Betrone:
"I am going to teach you an Act Of Love, very
quite simple, that you must repeat it, constantly, frequently,
I promise you that every time you pray this
Act Of Love, you will save the soul of a sinner and will repair
one thousand blasphemies.
Consolata, my daughter, think of Me and the
This is the formula for saving souls, Jesus
wants this prayer to be prayed all day long, every day, hour by
hour, minute by minute, as many souls go to hell because
Christians do not pray or sacrifice for sinners.
The Guardian Angel Prayer
Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day(night),
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
“From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their (the
angels) watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer
stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life.
Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the
blessed company of angels and men united to God.”(The Catechism
of the Catholic Church, 336)

St. Joseph - Terror of
Saint Faustina would eventually learn to
whom she can turn in order to allay her fears and unite her to
Jesus. It was none other than Jesus' foster father, St. Joseph.
The famous Litany of St. Joseph identifies him under the title
Terror of Demons, and it's no wonder. Surely, this man entrusted
by God with the singular mission of caring for and protecting
the Holy Family was endowed with graces enough to strike fear in
the forces of darkness. The demons don't stand a chance against
Saint Faustina writes:
"Saint Joseph urged me to have a constant
devotion to him. He himself told me to recite three prayers [the
Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be] and the Memorare and gave
me to know how much he is supporting this work [of mercy]. He
has promised me this special help and protection. I recite the
requested prayers every day and feel his special protection."
Memorare to St. Joseph
Remember, O most chaste
spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it
known that anyone who implored your help and
sought your intercession were left unassisted.
Full of confidence in your power I fly unto you
and beg your protection.
Despise not O Guardian of the Redeemer my humble
supplication, but in your bounty, hear and
answer me. Amen.
Another version of this
Remember, O most pure
spouse of Mary, and my dearly beloved guardian,
St. Joseph, that never was it known that anyone
who invoked your care and requested your help
was left without consolation.
Inspired with this confidence, I come to you,
and with all the ardor of my spirit I commend
myself to you. Do not reject my prayer, O Foster
Father of the Savior, but graciously receive and
answer it. Amen.
Consecration to St. Joseph
O dearest St. Joseph, I
consecrate myself to your honor and give myself
to you, that you may always be my father, my
protector and my guide in the way of salvation.
Obtain for me a greater purity of heart and
fervent love of the interior life.
After your example may I do all my actions for
the greater glory of God, in union with the
Divine Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may
share in the peace and joy of your holy death.
Saint Joseph after the Rosary
This prayer to Saint Joseph—spouse of the
Virgin Mary, foster father of Jesus, and patron saint of the
universal Church—was composed by Pope Leo XIII in his 1889
encyclical, Quamquam Pluries ... He
asked that it be added to the end of the Rosary, especially
during the month of October, which is dedicated to the Rosary.
The prayer is enriched with a partial indulgence (Handbook
of Indulgences, conc. 19), and may be said after the
customary Salve Regina and concluding prayer. It may
also be used to conclude other Marian devotions.
To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in
our tribulation, and having implored the help of your most holy
Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.
Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin
Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you
graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has
purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid
us in our necessities.
O most watchful guardian of the Holy
Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most
loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and
corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind
to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power
As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now
protect God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from
all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant
protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we
may be able to live piously, to die in holiness, and to obtain
eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.
Prayer Of Saint Faustina Before The Eucharist (Eucharistic
I adore You, Lord and
Creator, hidden in the Most Blessed
Sacrament. I adore You for all the works of
Your hands, that reveal to me so much
wisdom, goodness and mercy, O Lord. You have
spread so much beauty over the earth and it
tells me about Your beauty, even though
these beautiful things are but a faint
reflection of You, incomprehensible Beauty.
And although You have hidden Yourself and
concealed Your beauty, my eye, enlightened
by faith, reaches You and my soul recognizes
its Creator, its Highest Good, and my heart
is completely immersed in prayer of
Lord and Creator, Your goodness encourages
me to converse with You. Your mercy
abolishes the chasm which separates the
Creator from the creature. To converse with
You, O Lord, is the delight of my heart. In
You I find everything that my heart could
desire. Here You light illumines my mind,
enabling it to know You more and more
deeply. Here streams of graces flow down
upon my heart. Here my soul draws eternal
life. O my Lord and Creator, You alone,
beyond all these gifts, give Your own self
to me and unite Yourself intimately with
Your miserable creature.
O Christ, let my
greatest delight be to see You loved and
Your praise and glory proclaimed, especially
the honor of Your mercy. O Christ, let me
glorify Your goodness and mercy to the last
moment of my life, with every drop of my
blood and every beat of my heart. Would that
I be transformed into a hymn of adoration of
You. When I find myself on my deathbed, may
the last beat of my heart be a loving hymn
glorifying Your unfathomable mercy. Amen.

Saint Benedict Medal & Associated
The Front Of the Jubilee Saint Benedict
The Saint Benedict Medal is filled with
images, letters and words.
Pedestals stand on either side of
Benedict. The pedestal on his right holds a cup for wine and the
other a raven about to take flight. Both represent thwarted
attempts to kill Benedict. This is our reminder that Christ will
always come to the aid of those who call on Him.
In the area above the cup and raven the
Latin words “Crux s patris Benedicti” are inscribed. They
translate to ”The Cross of our holy father Benedict” (CSPB).
Inscribed around the margin of the medal
we find the words, “Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur!”
which translates to “May we be strengthened by his presence in
the hour of our death!” Saint Benedict is considered the patron
saint of a happy death.
Below Saint Benedict are the letters SM
Casino MDCCLXXX, indicating the medal commemorates the 1400th
anniversary of Benedict’s death.
The Back Of the Jubilee Saint Benedict
The cross on the back of the medal carries
the initial letters of a Latin prayer. “Crux sacra sti mihi
lux! Nanquam draco sit mihi dux!” translates to “May the holy
cross be my light! May the dragon never be my guide!” This is a
constant prayer of exorcism, protecting us from the evil of
In the spaces around the cross the letters
CSPB stand for, “Crux Sancti Patris benedicti", meaning, “The
cross of our holy father Benedict”.
Above the cross, the centuries-old
Benedictine motto reads simply “Pax”, “Peace”.
The letters outlining the rim of the
medal are the initial letters of a Latin prayer of exorcism:
VRSNSMV - SMQLIVB, standing for “Vade retro Santana! Nanquam
suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena
bibas!”meaning, “Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your
vanities! Evil are the things thous profferest, Drink thou thine
own poison” With these emphatic words in constant presence,
Satan cannot even approach.
Warfare - A Binding Prayer for the Conversion of Our Adult
One of the most painful
trials parents face is when their children leave the faith,
which occurs more often than people are aware. What happens
is, our children venture into the darkness as a result
of demonic influence. Binding prayers can be used to
counteract this influence. The demons are wanting to claim
our children for their own, however, the Almighty Father
will not allow that to happen. The following is a general
binding prayer that can be used on yourself or anyone you
have authority over like your children. This prayer is
taken from world renowned exorcist, Fr. Chad Ripperger's
Deliverence Prayers For Use By The Laity.
English Binding Prayer
Spirit of N., I
bind you in the Name of Jesus, by the power of the Holy
Cross, by the power of the most Precious Blood of Our Lord
Jesus Christ and by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, St. Michael the Archangel, the blessed Apostles, Peter
and Paul and all of the saints, and I command you to leave
N. (Name of person or object) and go to the foot of
the Holy Cross to receive your sentence, in the Name of the
Father, and of the Son and of the the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Latin Binding Prayer
Spiritus N., ego te ligo in
nomine Jesu, potestate Crucis sancti, potestate
pretiosissimi Sanguinis Domini nostri Jesu Christi, et per
intercessione beatissime Mariae Virginis, sancti Michaelis
archangeli, beatorum Apostolorum Petri et Pauli, et omnium
Sanctorum et tibi impero recedere N. (nomen personae aut
objecti) et ire ad pedem Crucis sancti sententiam tuam
recipere, in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
can be any particular vice or issue that you are praying
against. For example, if your child is cohabitating, you
might want to pray against the spirit of fornication –
fornicationis in Latin. A full list of names of spirits
can be found in Fr Chad Ripperger’s book.
The Angel of Peace Appears
to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta - Fatima, Portugal 1916
"We looked up startled to see what was
happening, for the day was unusually calm. Then we saw coming
towards us, above the olive trees, the figure I have already
spoken about, Jacinta and Francisco had never seen it before,
nor had I ever mentioned it to them. As it drew closer, we were
able to distinguish its features. It was a young man, about 14
or 15 years old, whiter than snow, transparent as crystal when
the sun shines through it, and of great beauty. On reaching us
"Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of
Peace. Pray with me." Kneeling on the ground, he bowed down
until his forehead touched the ground, and made us repeat these
words three times:
"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I asked
pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not
hope and do not love You."
Then, rising, he said: "Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary
are attentive to the voice of your supplications." (Fatima, in
Lucia's own words, pg 62)
In this next excerpt, Lucia tells us about their second
encounter with the Angel. After reading this, I made an instant
connection to "The Divine Mercy Prayer" that Jesus gave to St.
Faustina (and the whole world). Both prayers were given to us
for the conversion of sinners and the salvation of souls. There
are also several references made to "The Divine Mercy"
throughout the book.
"As soon as we arrived there, we knelt down, with our foreheads
touching the ground, and began to repeat the prayer of the
"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you ..." I don't
know how many times we had repeated this prayer, when an
extraordinary light shone upon us. We sprang up to see what was
happening, and beheld the Angel.
He was holding a chalice in his left
hand, with the Host suspended above it, from which some drops of
blood fell into the chalice. Leaving the chalice suspended in
the air, the Angel knelt down beside us and made us repeat three
"Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I offer You
the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus
Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in
reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with
which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits
of His most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I
beg of You the conversion of poor sinners."(Fatima, in
Lucia's own words, pg 64)
Blessing Of All Domestic Animals
Lord God King of heaven and earth, Thou the
Word of the Father by whom all creatures were given us for our
support: look down, we beseech Thee, on our lowliness. As Thou
hast given us these animals to assist us in our labors and needs
so mayest Thou in Thy great goodness and mercy bless them from
above, guard and preserve them; and, while Thou givest Thy
servants temporal benefits, mayest Thou grant us thy continual
grace so that we may praise Thy holy name with thanksgiving.
