THE STORY OF THE MIRACLES!
+ There was a woman who was living in the mountains and was leading an exemplary life. She, wishing to know how many were the wounds that Christ Our Lord, had received on His Most Sacred Body, requested the Lord, with devotion to reveal them to her.
The Lord appeared to her and said:
"You must know that I received on my body were five thousand four hundred fifty-five (5455) and therefore, I tell you that all those in memory of them would recite: FIFTEEN(15) OUR FATHERS AND FIFTEEN(15) HAIL MARY^s during one(1) year, shall take away from Purgatory fifteen souls and shall be relieved from the penance that should be done for so many mortal sins, and besides shall obtain the grace and the confirmation of good works." "Also, whoever recites during one whole year these prayers, I will give him fifteen days before hand, My body to eat, and he will not be thirsty, and I will place before him the sign of the cross that will serve him as his guardian and defense: and I, together with My Most Holy Mother, shall attend to him in the hour of his death, and I will receive benignly his soul and will take it to the eternal pleasure, and once there, I will give him the drink of Divinity; and whoever should have true sorrow and contrition or repentance for his sins, and should comply with prayers during one year. I will pardon all his sins from the day he was born until his death, and I will save him from the power of the demon and from his temptation; and if he is wicked; he will become good, and continually, I will save his soul fromt the fire of hell; and that whatever he would ask from My Mother I will grant and give him the life that will entitle him to live in my Kingdom and inhabit with me eternally."
+ "Whoever takes with him this prayer, and gives it to somebody to read, or will show it to any person, will obtain in this life pleasure and reward. Wherever he may be, this prayer will keep him in peace and intact, in the same manner that I kept the heavy waves of the sea. Any person, be it a man or a woman, who would have this prayer, shall not die suddenly, shall not be persecuted by his or her enemies, nor shall they be conquered in battle, or imprisoned or drowned in the sea, nor burned by fire or by lightning; nor shall be deposed against by any false witness. Any woman who is about to deliver and should hang this prayer on her neck, will deliver early without any danger."
This prayer was brought over by Don Juan Cardoso from Rome. It was found on the body of a man who was thrown into the sea with a big stone tied to his neck. This man remained floating in the sea without drowning. When he was rescued from the wave the prayer was found in his possession. Any one carrying it, must carry it with a sincere faith, because God does not know how to fail in his promises!
Everyday, say the following: P R A Y E R
My Lord, Jesus Christ, remember that I am a sinner. Most Holy Virgin, pray for me. You should always be praised and blessed. Pray for this sinner to Your Beloved Son, Precious beauty of the Angels, the Prophets and Patriachs, Crown of the Martyrs, Apostles, Confessors, Glory of the Seraphs, Crown of the Virgins save me from the most fearful figure of the demon when my soul departs from my body Oh, Most Holy Fount of Piety and Beauty of Jesus Christ, Joy of the Heavens, Consolation of the Clergy, Remedy in our works with You VIRGIN MOST PRUDENT, the Angels are happy, Recommend my soul and the soul of the devout, Christians, pray for us to Your Blessed Son, and take us to the Eternal Paradise where You reign and live forever, and there we will venerate you eternally, Amen.
Sovereign Virgin Mary, Mother of the Lving God, because you have delivered Him, pray for all of us sinners so that He may pardon us, save us from the wicked enemy that is fighting us, and grant us the eternal glory. Blessed be forever the Sacred Passion and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
+ ONE OUR FATHER, HAIL MARY AND GLORY BE TO THE FATHER, TO THE SON AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. 'VENERATION OF THE WOUNDS' (ON THE SHOULDER OF CHRIST)
Years ago in Clairvaux, France, we^re told that St. Bernard once asked of the Lord which among His sacrifices and sufferings was greatest, most painful and least known. Our Lord answered: I have a most painful wound on my shoulders as I carried the cross on the bitter way to Calvary, which pained me more than did my other wounds, but was never known because it was never seen. Do honor this wound in your prayers and I will give anything you ask through the merits of this same wound. And all who will venerate from Me the remission of this wound will obtain their sins, and I will no longer remember the mortal sins they have committed and already forgiven.
P R A Y E R
O dearest Jesus, Lamb of God most meek, I, a miserable sinner, render homage and worship to the wounds upon Thy shoulder made by the heavy cross. Thou didst carry. Its weight tore Thy flesh and bared Thy shoulder bones, which caused Thee sufferings more than did Thy other wound... I adore Thee, O grieving Jesus, I praise, thank Thee for thy adorable and most painful wound. Vouch-safe to grant me, through the excessive pain and unmeassured weight of the cross to have mercy on me a sinner. Forgive me my mortal and venial sins, and guide me on to heaven through the way of the cross. Amen.
+ THE FIFTEEN SECRET TORTURES AND SUFFERINGS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
(Revealed to the pious, God loving Sister Mary Magdalen of the Santa Clara Order, Franciscan, who lived, died and was beatified in Rome.) Jesus filled the wish of this Sister who desired ardently to know something about the secret sufferings which he endured the night before His death. (THIS DEVOTION IS APPROVED AND RECOMMENDED BY HIS HOLINESS CLEMENT II, 1730-1740).
"The Jews considered Me as the most wretched man living on earth so that is why:
1. They fastened My feet with a rope and dragged Me over the stepping stones of the staircase down into a filthy, nauseating cellar.
2. They took off My clothing and stung My body with iron joints.
3. They attached a rope around My body and pulled Me along on the ground, from end to end.
4. They hanged Me on a wooden piece with a slipknot until I slipped out and fell down. overwhelmed by this torture, I wept bloody tears.
5. They tied Me to a post and pierced My body with various arms.
6. They stuck Me with stones and burnt Me with blazing embers & torches.
7. They pierce Me with awls; sharp spears tore My skin, flesh and arteries out of my body.
8. They tied Me to a post and made Me barefoot, on an incandescent metal sheet.
9. They crowed me Me with an Iron crown and wrapped My eyes with the dirtiest
10. They made Me sit on a chair covered with sharp pointed nails, causing deep wounds in My body.
11. They poured on My wounds liquid lead and resin, after this torture, they pressed Me on the nailed chair, so that the nails went deeper and deeper into My flesh.
12. For shame and affliction, they drove needles in the holes of my uprooted beard. Then they tied My hands behind my back and led Me walking out of prison with strikes and blows.
13.They threw Me upon a cross and attached Me so tightly that I could hardly breathe anymore.
14.They threw at My head as I lay on the earth, and they stepped on Me, hurting My breast. Then taking a thorn from My crown they drove it into My tongue.
15.They poured into my mouth the most immodest excretions, as they uttered the most infamous expressions about Me.
Then Jesus added: "My daughter, I desire that you let everyone know these 'FIFTEEN SECRET TORTURES', in order that everyone of them be honored." Anyone who daily offers Me, with love, one of these sufferings and says with fervor the following prayer, will be rewarded with eternal glory on the day of judgment.
P R A Y E R
My Lord and My God, it is my unchangeable will to honor You in these FIFTEEN SECRET TORMENTS when you shed Your Precious Blood. As many times as there are grains of sand around the seas, as grains of wheat in the fields, as blades of grass in the meadows, as fruit in the orchards, as leaves on the trees, as flowers in the garden, as stars in the sky, as angels in Heaven, as creatures on earth. So many thousands of times may You be glorified, praised and honored, O most love-worthy Lord Jesus Christ - Your holiest Heart, Your Precious Blood, Your Divine Sacrifice for mankind, the Holiest Sacraments of the Altar, the Most Holy Virgin Mary, the nine glorious choirs of Angels and the Blessed Phalanx of the Saints, from myself and everyone, now and forever, and in the eternal ages.
"In like manner, I desire, My dear Jesus, to give you thanksgiving, to serve you, to repair and atone for all ignominies, and to offer You my soul and body as Your Possessions forever." Likewise, I regret all my sins and be Your pardon, O my Lord and my God. And I offer You all the merits of Jesus Christ to repair everything, to obtain a happy dying-hour and the deliverance of the souls from Purgatory. This prayer, I desire to renew at each hour until my death O lovable Jesus, Sweet Saviour, fortify my resolution and permit not that neither wretched men nor Satan destroy it. Amen!
