Today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, commemorating the victory won by King Jan Sobieski of Poland over the Mohammedans at the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683. The troops under the command of Jan Sobieski exclaimed "Jesus, Mary, Sobieski!" as they prayed their Rosaries and routed the Turkish forces.
Each of us does battle every day with the Turks, that is, with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. We must call upon the Holy Name of Mary, something we do at least one hundred fifty-three times every day if we pray all fifteen mysteries of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. This sweet name of the Mother of God must be on our lips at all times, and it must be exclaimed by public officials as she is honored as the Queen of Heaven and on earth, yes, of each and every nation on earth, including the United States of America. No one should be ashamed at any time to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary publicly. Indeed, we must do so with joy and confidence.
Saint Louis de Montfort taught us in True Devotion to Mary that those who are the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary should address others with a Marian salutation. How felicitous it is, therefore, to greet others with Ave Maria! or a Salve Regina! How glorious it is to make invocations such as "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!" or "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation" or "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death."
May Our Lady, she who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, help us to grow in this virtue, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.
Sweet Name of Mary, be our salvation.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Well, yesterday was supposed to be devoted to completing an article that ties in the upcoming renaming of a piazza in Rome in honor of the drunken, lecherous heretic Martin Luther with the fast-paced, head-spinning series of events that have spiraled out of control as the septuagenarian juvenile delinquent, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, invents nonexistent grounds for ratified and consummated marriages to be declared null. Luther did not intend the mess that is still unfolding in the world today. That mess occurred because of his own revolution's inevitable consequences that he did not foresee as his intellect was so darkened by his sins that he could refused to admit that was his own false, heretical beliefs that set Europe on the course of moral decay whose extent horrified him.
Similarly, the "conservative" within the conciliar hierarchywho have tried to "stabilize" the conciliar revolution have never understood that they have been trying to save that which is false of its very nature and is thus from the devil as they have done the adversary's bidding repeatedly by breaking the First and Second Commandments with their praise of false religions and active, full and conscious participation in "ecumenical prayer" gatherings in their own dioceses. Revolutions always eat their own, and that's what going on right now throughout the structures of the false church that arose with the blessing and direction of the first of six usurpers of the Throne of Saint Peter since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII.
My work on this article, however, was impeded by the slight little fact that our automobile's engine died yesterday, this time for good, in not the most optimal of weather conditions. It's a long story, which unfolded I was parked on the shoulder of a major highway in heavy traffic for several hours as I kept in touch with Sharon and Lucy back home, and it is far from clear to us how this all gets resolved. We are in need of prayers. We are also very much in need of readers making use of the PayPal donation buttons as this is a time when I must do that which I tried to avoid doing in the past few years, namely, to make a general appeal to the readership of this site for non-tax-exempt financial gifts. Thank you.
Without a vehicle and the prospect of not having one for quite a lengthy period of time, I will have plenty of time today to complete the next original article for this site.
This current cross, one of several we have been given at this time, is accepted with love ad gratitude as we know that it has been fashioned for us from all eternity by the loving hand of God for His greater honor and glory and for our own sanctification as the consecrated slaves of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Divine Son, Christ the King, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you! Save souls!
