Header-Fr Martin blasphemes the Holy Rosary

By Luiz Sérgio Solimeo


The rosary is a set of prayers addressed to Our Lady in order to, through her intercession, receive graces to be good and defend the Faith and Christian civilization.

 

The Rosary, a Devotion Highly Recommended by Saints and Popes

The rosary is one of the devotions most recommended by saints and popes. Thus, Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903), in his Encyclical Supremi Apostolatus Officio of 1883, extolled this devotion as the great weapon in defense of the Church:

“Now that the anniversary, therefore, of manifold and exceedingly great favors obtained by a Christian people through the devotion of the Rosary is at hand, We desire that that same devotion should be offered by the whole Catholic world with the greatest earnestness to the Blessed Virgin, that by her intercession her Divine Son may be appeased and softened in the evils which afflict us.…

“This devotion, so great and so confident, to the august Queen of Heaven, has never shone forth with such brilliancy as when the militant Church of God has seemed to be endangered by the violence of heresy spread abroad, or by an intolerable moral corruption, or by the attacks of powerful enemies. Ancient and modern history and the more sacred annals of the Church bear witness to public and private supplications addressed to the Mother of God, to the help she has granted in return, and to the peace and tranquility which she had obtained from God.” 1

The pontiff went on to recall some victories obtained through the rosary: against the Albigensian heresy in southern France; against the Muslim infidels in the naval battle of Lepanto in 1571; and again at Temeswar, in Pannonia, and at Corfu.

 

Our Lady at Fatima: “Pray the Rosary Every Day”

Nowadays when the Muslim danger is reborn, and in which heresy and “an intolerable moral corruption” assaults the Church, especially with homosexual scandals by members of the clergy and hierarchy, the rosary has become more necessary than ever.

That is why, at Fatima, the Blessed Mother recommended that the three seers “pray the rosary every day.”And she presented herself as the Lady of the Rosary.

 

A Blasphemous Mockery of the Holy Rosary

Accordingly, to mock the holy rosary by asking God to bless and favor the social acceptance of unnatural public sin—instead of beseeching Him for graces to help practice purity and the other virtues—is blasphemy against this heavenly devotion, and thus against the Blessed Mother, to whom it is addressed.

Fr. James Martin, S.J. is known for his ongoing efforts favoring the homosexual movement. On December 3, he posted this blasphemous parody of the rosary on his Facebook page:

“Dear friends: A few months ago, I received an unusual gift from out of the blue: a Rosary that invited one to pray for a variety of people who suffer--unborn children, victims of gun violence, refugees and migrants, victims of racism, LGBT people, and so on: one group for each "decade." I've seen many Rosaries like this, but this to me was the most beautiful. … (Needless to say, you can also use it as a traditional Rosary, which I do, with the traditional mysteries.) … It was a beautiful gift that I've kept--and used. And a few weeks ago, at the Ignatian Family Teach-In, in Washington, DC, I met the wonderful people who were behind this gift, "Contemplative Rebellion," and was able to thank them. … The Rosary of Modern Sorrows is available here (with a further description of the intentions related to each decade): https://contemplativerebellion.com/…/rosary-of-modern-sorrow” (emphasis added). 2

By recommending to others to pray a blasphemous “Rosary,” the “Rainbow Jesuit” participates in this blasphemy against the Virgin Mary.

 

Full Acceptance of LGBTQ Couples

Indeed, here is the prayer corresponding to the fifth “mystery” of this “Rosary” made with rainbow-colored beads:

“We Pray for a welcoming of LGBTQ people by all churches, temples, mosques and synagogues. We Pray for LGBTQ couples, their children, and extended families. We Pray that they may be supported and loved, with full acceptance as people truly created in the image of God, a creation that God saw as “good”, and who deserve to live every aspect of life to the fullest.” (emphasis added) 3

Please note how the prayer implies that “LGBTQ couples,” as such, were “truly created in the image of God” and that this was “a creation that God saw as ‘good.’”

However, two people of the same sex that live as a couple are engaged in the practice of the homosexual sin. To say that God created them like this and that their unnatural behavior is “good” and comes from God is nonsense.

To suppose that God could have created a different type of human being that was not obliged to fulfill the precepts of the Ten Commandments and the natural law would be to install contradiction in Him. However, a contradictory God is absurd since He is the Supreme Wisdom.

The bad tendencies afflicting man are consequences of Original Sin. They are not of God’s creation. But the grace of God always gives sufficient strength for man to resist these bad tendencies and, in so doing, to practice the virtues. 4

There is only one human nature, and it has two sexes, male and female, that complement each other: “And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them” (Gen. 1:27).

Let us heed the request of Our Lady of Fatima by praying the rosary daily. And let us also pray it in reparation for the blasphemy boosted by this unfaithful Jesuit.

July 11

Whosoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly,
applying himself to the consideration of its Sacred Mysteries
shall never be conquered by misfortune.
God will not chastise him in His justice,
he shall not perish by an unprovided death;
if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and
become worthy of Eternal Life.

Our Lady to St. Dominic


My Mother, I will stand with you on OCTOBER 10, 2020

St. Benedict of Nursia

Benedict was of a noble family in Nursia, near Rome, and had a twin sister, Scholastica, also a saint and co-founder with him.

Sent to Rome for his education, Benedict abhorred the licentiousness of his companions in the city and secretly left Rome. He found his way to the village of Enfide, where, far from the din, he realized that he was called to a life of solitude.

Climbing higher to a rugged, wild place called Subiaco, he met a hermit, Romanus, who giving him a habit of sheepskin, initiated him in the hermitical life in a cave high up in the mountain.

In this desolate place, Benedict spent three years in total solitude, once a day lowering a basket to Romanus who brought him bread and kept the secret of his whereabouts.

As the fame of the sanctity and the miraculous powers of the young recluse spread, disciples gathered. Benedict set up a system of twelve wooden monasteries, containing each twelve monks headed by a superior, himself directing all from his cave.

Once these communities where established, Benedict moved on to Monte Cassino. At the site of a big temple, he built two chapels, and around the sanctuary there gradually arose the greatest abbey the world has ever known.

Profiting from the experience at Subiaco, Benedict now no longer placed those who flocked to him in separate houses but gathered them in one establishment, ruled over by priors and deans under his general supervision. Here he also built guest rooms, for as Monte Cassino was nearer Rome, not only laymen but dignitaries came to consult with the holy founder.

It was most certainly at this period that Benedict composed his rule of monastic life, which was to influence all of Europe.

At Mount Cassino, famous for his sanctity and miracles, Benedict far from confining his care to his monks alone, extended it to the population in the surrounding country. He relieved the distressed, healed the sick, distributed alms, nourished the poor, and is said to have raised the dead on more than one occasion.

The great saint, who had foretold so many things, also foretold his own death. He notified his disciples, and bid them dig a grave six days before the end. As soon as his burial site was ready, he was struck with a fever and on the last day received Holy Communion. Then, lovingly supported by his spiritual sons, he expired, standing on his feet in his chapel, his hands uplifted to heaven.

A Young Man and His Lady Love

In twelfth century England, a group of young men had gathered and were bragging of their various feats, as young men have done since the beginning of time.

The lively conversation went from archery to sword fighting to horsemanship, each trying to outdo the accomplishments of the others.

Finally, the young men began to boast of some foolish love affairs. Not to be outdone by his peers, a noble youth named Thomas declared that he, too, loved a great lady, and was beloved by her.

Thomas of Canterbury meant the most holy Virgin as the object of his affection, but afterwards, he felt some remorse at having made this boast. He did not want to offend his beloved Lady in any way.

Seeing all from her throne in heaven, Mary appeared to him in his trouble, and with a gracious sweetness said to him: "Thomas, what do you fear? You had reason to say that you loved me, and that you are beloved by me. Assure your companions of this, and as a pledge of the love I bear you, show them this gift that I make you."

The gift was a small box, containing a chasuble, blood-red in color. Mary, for the love she bore him, had obtained for him the grace to be a priest and a martyr, which indeed happened, for he was first made priest and afterwards Bishop of Canterbury, in England.

Many years later, he would indeed be persecuted by the king, and Thomas fled to the Cistercian monastery at Pontignac, in France.

Far from kith and kin, but never far from his Lady Love, he was attempting to mend his hair-cloth shirt that he usually wore and had ripped. Not being able to do it well, his beloved queen appeared to him, and, with special kindness, took the haircloth from his hand, and repaired it as it should be done.

After this, at the age of 50, he returned to Canterbury and died a martyr, having been put to death on account of his zeal for the Church.
