The Catholic Doctrines about the Virgin Mary and the Reason Why

The Gospel of St. John expressly
reminds the reader that not every-
thing is in the Bible.    However,
Protestantism is based on a very
fatal and tunnel-visioned belief in
Sola Scriptura.  Thus, Protestants
demand a Biblical reference that
justifies Marian devotion.  The
source is the Gospel of Luke,
where Mary said:

My soul magnifies the Lord and 
my spirit rejoices in God my Sav-
ior, because he has looked upon 
his handmaid's lowliness.  Hence-
forth,  all generations shall call 
me blessed,  because he who is 
mighty has done great things
for me, and holy is his name.

In light of this, if you have a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, then you call
her blessed by means of said devotion.  In doing so, you are fulfilling a Biblical
prophecy of all generations (after hers and including hers) calling her blessed.

Those who do not call her blessed are NOT Christians, only pretenders lodged
in heretical sects that rejected many precepts and doctrines which trace back to
the original apostles.

All in all, devotion to Mary consists in being part of All Succeeding Generat-
ions calling Mary blessed as was prophesied in the Bible.  It's that simple.
Concerning simplicity, it is written,

                       "From  the mouths of babes come perfect praise."

Thus, a child praying the Rosary is fulfilling Sacred Scripture in sending forth
perfect praise.  People who have trouble accepting this are spiritual gluttons
never satisfied with anything but that which is vain and overbearingly gaudy.
The irony is that embracing a devotion as humble as the Rosary results in the
devotee having lights and a colorfulness equal to a multi-faceted gem which
is very clear, as opposed to muddy and muddled.

In addition, there is the account in the Gospel of John, where Christ, while dying
on the Cross, said to John, "Behold.  Your mother."  Devotion to the woman giv-
en to mankind as its mother honors Christ in the pain and death he endured.  Add
to the Biblical sources the words of God the Father, spoken through the Archangel
Gabriel"Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Rejoice oh highly favored 
daughter."  Devotion to God's highly favored daughter honors the God who creat-
ed her.  It also shows a common interest that you and God both hold.


1]  What is the essence of Marian Devotion?

Response:  To start, Mary is NOT a brain dead road sign who merely says, "Do
whatever he says."  Rather, she, unlike any creature of God, brings Jesus to you.
In as much, Marian Devotion consists in Mary taking Jesus and placing him in
your arms.  Then, when you die, Mary takes you and places you in Jesus' arms.
It's that simple.  But, it is the essence of sacredness.  Only the arrogant are in
complete incomprehensive to this reality.

2a]  Isn't looking at a painting or statue of the Virgin Mary idolatry?

Response:  Do you have photos of your loved ones at home?   When you look at
those photos, are you worshiping the people within the frames?   In fact, do you
have photos of sports heroes, war heroes, peace heroes, singing stars, or movie
stars?  Do you worship those people as if you actually believe that they created
all that is seen and unseen?   Religious images are reminders.   They are study
guides that help you recollect something pertinent about the event or person de-
picted in the image upon which you are meditating.

Such images are a view to a scene or a person.   They let you experience the per-
son or the event to some degree.   When you view and make conscious note of an
image of the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, or the Ascension, it places your con-
siderations and realizations at the event represented.

Religious images have symbolism attached to them.  The symbolism for martyrs
includes the article of execution used upon the martyr, as well as a palm branch to
remind the viewer that the saint represented in the image was a martyr.   Thus, in
images of Saint Jude, you will see clubs.  In images of Saint Andrew, you will see
an X-shaped  cross.  In as much, images of the saints are blessed picture books.  
The stained glass versions of such images helped the illiterate tremendously. 

3a]  Where in the Bible does it state that the
        Virgin Mary was conceived without sin?

Response:  It was mentioned at the Annunciation when the Archangel Gabriel said,
"Hail, full of grace. The Lord is with you."   To be full of one thing is to be free of
its opposite.  Therefore, to be full of grace is to be free of sin.  Furthermore, to be
full of grace is different than being filled with the Holy Spirit .  To be filled with
the Holy Spirit still requires the person to receive stipends of grace, so that sin will
not be out of control weeds in the soul.  To be full of grace is to be in a state where
all sin is always crowded out.

The church came before the New Testament.  If it were not for the apostles and the
faith of the early Christians, there would be no series of written texts called the New
Testament.  Therefore, the Bible was made for man --- not man for the Bible.   The
New Testament came forth from Tradition.  Tradition existed first.

The Bible has a limited number of pages, meaning that it's finite.  It was written in
the service of the Infinite God.  Thus, not everything is in the Bible, being that finite
pages cannot contain knowledge of the Infinite.  Therefore, it wasn't required for the
Bible to state that the Virgin Mary was conceived in an immaculate state of soul.  In
fact, John stated in his Gospel,  "There are also many other things that Jesus did,
but if they were to be described individually,  I don't think that the entite world 
would be able to contain the books that would be written."  Therefore, a writer of
the Bible stated that not everything is in the Bible.  Quite frankly, hardly anything is
in the Bible.

The Bible is merely the Beginner's Book.   It's training wheels compared to what the
angels know about the subject, as well as what you'll personally experience in your
interaction with God, the angels, the saints, and even people in this life.   Your edu-
cation will be the result of the Holy Spirit infusing knowledge into you and the oth-
ers who will share their knowledge with you.  This type of thing happens whether
the person given infused knowledge read the Bible or not.  Reading the Bible does
not guarantee holiness.  Satan  knows the Bible far more than anyone of us.  Know-
ing it didn't make him a saint.

3b]  The Bible said that, "In Adam, all have sinned."  
        Isn't the Virgin Mary a member of this "all?"

Response:  Mary wasn't in Adam.  She was in the Holy Spirit.  This is why God
the Father gave the impulse to the archangel Gabriel which resulted in him appear-
ing to Mary and defining her as "Full of Grace."  Never before and never after did
God the Father instruct any angel to appear to anyone on earth and recognize her as
being full of grace.

A handful of  people in scriptural passages were described as being full of the Holy
Spirit, but this is different than being full of grace.   To be full of grace is to possess
all of the graces existing in the treasury of the Holy Spirit, to the point where you can
wield them as if there were yours.  To be full of the Holy Spirit still places the per-
son in need of the Holy Spirit conveying specific needed graces to him/her.   To be
full of the Holy Spirit is to be in possession of sanctifying grace.   To be full of grace
is to be in possession of all actual internal graces without having in your soul a com-
ponent that acts against those graces.  Any component within the soul that acts against
grace is an element of original sin.  




3c]  But what empowered God to create Mary Immaculate?

Response:  The foreseen merits of Christ and Christ's rights as Savior of mankind
did so.  Jesus is the perfect savior.  He has the right to save souls in every spectrum
of life, from the beginning to the end of life.  He was empowered to save a person
who jumped off a bridge, in giving that person the unfailing grace to make a perfect
act of contrition or of love before that person hit the water.   He was empowered to
save from their sins those on their death beds, moments away from eternity.  Thus,
he had the right to save one person from even falling into sin.  

What he did to Mary the first moment she was created was equivalent to catching
someone before she falls into the mud.  The fact that he would one day perform the
priestly sacrifice that only he could do was all that was needed to empower him to
save Mary from falling into the state of original sin.  Christ is more dynamic than
what he is presently made out to be.

4]  The idea of Original Sin sounds too judgmental.  How could 
      a mere child who didn't do anything start out in original sin?

Response:  No child is guilty of committing the original sin, being that no child is
the original Adam.  Rather, being conceived in the state of original sin consists in
being conceived in the same state that Adam found himself, the moment after he
committed the original sin.

This state of original sin brings with it obscured reason, as well as senses that can
get out of control.  This is why we must apply ourselves to learning and why we al-
so need to do some type of good in life, such as occasional fasting, abstention, works
of mercy, prayer, and  those bodily workouts formerly known as mortifications.  Af-
ter all, we are not born with infused knowledge and we no longer possess the endow-
ment of integrity.   The first objective is to conquer your cravings.

The other effect of original sin that can lead to tragedy and abuse is interdependence.
Those who take advantage of the dependence of others rocket into Hell like lightning,
if they die before converting.  Forcing women to partake in prostitution is a sin worse
than the acts of prostitution themselves. 

5]  What gave Christ the power to assume 
      Mary into Heaven body and soul?

Response:  The Ten Commandments did.  It is written, "Honor your mother and 
father."   If Jesus didn't take his own mom into Heaven body and soul, he would
have sinned against his own commandment.  This was expressly mentioned in the
Infallible Statement, titled, Munificentissimus Deus, published in 1950.

6]  The Bible states that there is but one Mediator between God 
      and Man.   That would exclude everyone else, including Mary.

Response:  No one devoted to Mary ever said that she was the savior of mankind.
This is where one needs to have a minimal understanding of Latin.  Co-redemptrix
means, "With the Redeemer."  Mary called God her savior during the Visitation she
made to her cousin Elizabeth.   That same biblical passage stated that all generations
will call her blessed.   People devoted to the Virgin Mary, by their devotion, call her
blessed, thereby fulfilling the prophecy about her in the Bible.   If you do not call her
blessed, then you are the one who is anti-Biblical.  After all, it is written, "All gener-
ations will call me blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things 
for me and holy is his name."   "His name," incidentally, means "his person."

Christ is the Mediator for the forgiveness of sin.  Mary is the dispenser of graces,
because of Jesus' priestly sacrifice.  Such a job resulted in her being called, Mary,
the Mediatrix of All Graces.

There is a reason why Mary must be the Mediatrix of the graces which, incidental-
ly, come from her spouse, the Holy Spirit.  It pertains to the the Last Supper.   The
Last Supper was the first Mass, where Jesus gave to mankind the last commandment
that he will ever give.   This occurred when he said, "Love  one another as I have
loved you."  Mary is the master link in that chain of loving one another as Christ has
loved us.   After all, she was personally in direct view of Divine Love longer than
anyone in the history of mankind.   Therefore, she has more experience at interacting
with it.

In the mystery of love, Mary transformed into the Holy Spirit.  I can assure you, ev-
en if you are the most Bible-reading person on earth, Mary knows mysteries that you
do not.  So, why not go to the source of the mysteries that pertain to the salvation of
mankind?  The Virgin Mary knows what it means to be saved more than anyone in
existence.  More mercy was bestowed upon the Virgin Mary, in keeping her free
from sin, than was bestowed upon every converted prostitute combined.

It's written, "Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor has it entered the hu-
man heart as to what God has prepared for those who love him ..."  1 Cor., 2:9. 
Also written is, "Beloved,  we are God's children now.  What we shall be has 
not yet been  revealed.   We do  know that, when it is revealed, we shall be like
him, being that we shall see him as he is.This means that the mysteries of God
are far too deeply recessed and awe-striking for them to be reduced to the basal
mentality of those too cowardly to aspire the to depths and heights where one ex-
pects to find the angels stationed.   The express route to the angels is the Rosary,
of course.  The principle prayer of the Rosary are the words of God the Father
spoken by Gabriel.  It is known as the Angelic Salutation ... the Hail Mary.

People who hate the Virgin Mary do so, because they think that they have an aver-
sion to what they perceive to be gymnastics training and harsh disciplinary oppres-
sion.   Yet, those who have an affinity to her see her as a beautiful starlit night.  Her
devotees become attracted to her beauty and inviting friendliness, if they don't do
so, in the quest for solace in tragedy.  They are devoted to her because they want to
be near her.   She then takes over and starts the trimming, pruning, and overhauling
process.   After the chiseling, one ends up perceiving the Holy Spirit for what he ac-
tually is; Kindness itself.  Concerning Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,

The Faith of Peter & Paul (aka Catholic Doctrine.) Test it for cracks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Definitions of God, Love, Faith, Prayer,
Evil, Sin, Innocence, Worship, Meekness, 
Mysticism, Beauty, Prayer, and Messiah
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The sources herein include Thomas Aquinas,
Francis de Sales,  Catherine of Siena,  Louis
of Montfort,  Pius XII,  &  St. Bonaventure.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Those who appreciate beauty become the
beauty they appreciate.  In a similar fashion,
the mystery of love is that of transforming
into the object of your love.  This includes
transforming into evil, if this happens to be
the object of your love.


The Virgin Mary once appeared to Saint Dominic after he failed to convert the
Albigensians, despite his athletic effort to do so.  She told him that he was try-
ing to cultivate a harvest where no rain had fallen. She then told him that the
Angelic Psalter (today's Rosary) was the way to convert souls.

The modus operandi of the Virgin Mary is to first send rain, in gentle drops.
Her next mode of action is dependent upon the way the people involved re-
spond to her gentleness.  The following are elements of the Faith of Peter,
written like a penny catechism.  That's to say, they're rain drops of the Faith.
After all, kindness and truth are a package deal, as was first stated in the Book
of the Prophet Isaiah.  The Holy Spirit is Kindness in essence.  The Holy Spirit
revealed truth.  He always proceeds in gentleness.  The Virgin Mary brings the
gentleness.

One more point to make here:

   Theology = Faith seeking reason, as to why a doctrine was declared as it was.

1. Mysticism.   To start, what is mysticism?   ANS:  Mysticism is contact with God.
This is an official church definition and not a personal opinion.  My personal opinion
is that mysticism is the act of delving into the infinite and supernatural, while simul-
taneously abandoning the finite and animalistic.  This comprises detaching oneself
from utterly worthless vanities such as "self esteem."  My alternate definition of
mysticism is transformation.  Transformation was a theme of Saint Catherine of
Siena, incidentally.  She's a doctor of the church.

2.  God.   How is God correctly defined, aside of  the only being in all of existence
who never had a beginning?   ANS:  In status, God is the Unmoved Mover and the
Catalyst that never was catalyzed.  In essence, God is the infinite perfection of ev-
ery virtue in existence simultaneously occurring in the same one being. 

2b.  It is not merely that God loves, communicates in truth, grants mercy, and stays
faithful.   Rather, God is charity & mercy itself, as well as kindness & truth,  justice
& peace,  fairness & generosity,  patience & temperance, fortitude & heroism, grat-
itude & fidelity, prudence & innocence, etc.

2b.  God being the Unmoved Mover means that existence is no chance occurrence.
You realize this when you follow the trail of cause and effect.   At the end of every
trail is the discovery that everything traces itself to an Unmoved Mover, as well as
an Uncatalyzed Catalyst.   Either someone or a plurality of someones brought into
existence all that came to be.   Even if you are an unwavering adherent to the Big
Bang Theory, you have to admit that no one has ever been able to explain how the
unfathomably dense initial atom, with its billions of galaxies locked inside of it,
came into existence.

2c.  God is transcendent, being untouchable by all that is seen and unseen.  Yet, the
same God is immanent, in being fully involved in all that is.  In fact, God is more
real in any one of us than any one of us is real in ourselves.   God is so intimately
involved in any one person that there's a recessed area in each human soul reserved
solely for God.  Not even angels are capable of reaching it.

2d.   The spiritually fatal error in modern physicists' search for the God Genome or
the God Particle, in order for it to officially recognize the existence of God, consists
in the reality that God is Spirit and Truth.   Physicists are looking for an infinite spir-
it in the world of the finite physical.







3.   Humanity's Existence.   The aforementioned statements make one conclude
that God is the executive producer of man's existence, no matter how the same one
God arranged for that existence to come into being.   In light of this, what was God's
ultimate goal in creating humanity?   ANS:  God created mankind, in order to unite
with his creation, by becoming man.  In sequence, God's purpose for sharing in man's
humanity was so that man could share in God's divinity.  This is mentioned in the Li-
turgical prayer in the Canon of the Mass.

3b.  This is where the mystery of love is activated.  Firstly, the Mystery of Love that
of transforming into the object of your love.  In this mystery, God so loved mankind
that God became man.   Love is transformational.

3c.  The phenomenon of God uniting with God's creation translates into the concept
of Messiah.   Now, Messiah means Anointed One.  It is synonymous with the title,
Christ.    The phenomenon of the Anointed One consists in humanity being anointed
by the divinity of God in the same one person.   The Anointed One, therefore, has to
be God or else the union of divinity and humanity can't occur.   This is where recog-
nition of the existence of the Son of God comes to the fore.   The Son of God is the
only one in existence who can become man and then activate the anointing of divin-
ity upon humanity.   The union of the divine with the human is the Hypostatic Union.

3d.  Without the existence of the Son of God, the existence of an entire God is com-
pletely impossible.   Moreover, in order for God to exist as an eternal, all-powerful,
and life-giving being, such a God can only exist as a Trinity.   This means that God
is not a him or a her.   Rather, God is a "them" who is only properly described in the
third person plural of "they" when describing the actions of God.

3e. God is a spiration from one infinite person that is requited by a second infinite
person.  The spiration of all which is infinitely virtuous is the third infinite person. 
In fact, the second infinite person is the Raison d'Etre of the first infinite person,
and the spiration itself is the third infinite person of this united Divine Essence.

3e1. A person who has no beginning sends forth a spiration that says,  "Let there
be light."   A second person who also has no beginning responds by stating, "So
be it.   Let there be light."  A third person as infinite as the other two is the light
itself.  This means that God is a 1} spiration sending forth all that is virtue, 2} a
requitement of that spiration in consenting to all that is virtue, 3} a living light that
is the infinite virtue, itself.   God is a crossfire of love, with the third person being
the fire which is being eternally exchanged between the first and second person of
the endlessly united being.

3f.  Some people claim that there is no God, because there has never been any quan-
titative measurement of God found to exist.   The answer to this is that, if you could
measure God, then it wouldn't be God whom you're measuring.   This is because the
Eternal God is transcendent and incomparable.   Secondly, quantitative measurement
denotes physical structure.   God doesn't have a molecular structure to put under an
electron microscope.   God is in all things only in that God is involved in all things. 
In essence, God is Spirit and Truth

4.  There is a difference between being blessed and being anointed.   In light of this,
it is written, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God." 
What does it mean to be poor?    ANS:  To be poor means to be constantly de-
pendent upon God.

4b.  It is also written, "Blessed are the meek."    What does it mean to be meek? 
ANS:  To be meek means to be able to take a hit without hitting back.   Meek-
ness is an element of temperance.



5. Beauty.    What is beauty?    ANS:  Beauty is Harmony & Proportion.  The
source to this statement if Saint Francis de Sales.  In addition, beauty is not limited
to the face, the physique, a sunset, or a starlit night.  That is to say, it's not limited to
the physical world.

5b. For example, you can engage in beautiful speech, where the subject matter is in
harmonious context, with all subsets of the subject matter getting proportionate at-
tention.   You can also have a beautiful relationship, consisting in harmony between
each person involved, as well as proportionate interaction between the same.  In se-
quence, a beautiful relationship is one where the rapport between the people in the
relationship is not lopsided.

5b1.  Beauty exists as a reality, and not as a matter of personal preference.  Now,
what one person might find attractive is not always something beautiful.  There's
a difference between attraction and beauty.   Being that God exists in proportion-
ate harmony between three divine persons, God is Beauty itself. 

6.  Evil.   What is evil?  ANS:  Evil is the lack of a good which ought to be present
but is absent.  Evil is deprivation.

6b. Can there be a God when so much evil has been allowed to perpetuate through-
out the centuries?   ANS:  The answer is Yes.  God did not will the evil to transpire.
The Divine Essence did not give permission for it to happen.  That's why there is
something known as sin.  Plus, the existence of evil in the world cannot negate the
existence of God.  In fact, there is evil done in the name of a God whose image
was distorted by those doing the evil.

Evils on earth perpetuate, only because few people on earth seek to stop them from
happening.  It is NOT God letting the evil happen.  It's mankind.  The answer is that
evil is prevailing throughout the earth because either you, in your cowardice, let it
happen or others in their cowardice won't help you stop any evil you trying to stop.
In the alternate, those in power are so self-centered and inconsiderate that they let
evil perpetuate.  Yet, the self-centered mind set is the mindset of a coward.  The
gutless cowardice of men is what lets evil prevail on earth.  It's known as the sin
of cooperation.

Sin is the act of spiritual suicide.   It's the act of turning away from God.  It consists
in jumping off the bridge which is God.  More specifically, sin is the act of seeking
to negate your existence, even though you were created to exist for ever.   In fact, sin
is the act of  becoming nothingness itself.  Whereas God is Love, a obstinate sinner
in the state of mortal sin is Nothingness.  Mention of the nothingness of sin appears
in the Dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena.  The text includes private revelations con-
veyed to Catherine.

6b. Why does God stand by, letting evil occur, instead of stopping it by supernatural
intervention?  ANS:  It is allowed, in order to bring forth a greater state of good than
that which would have existed if the evil in question never occurred.  God stands by,
while evil completes its destruction, so that God can construct a greater good than
was previously there.

6c.  It's also a matter of the pruning effect.   The pruning of tree branches results in
the vibrant growth of the tree being pruned.   God allows evil, so that the pruning of
the soul can occur.

6d.  This principle is illustrated in the discipline of weight lifting.   Lifting weights
results in muscle actually being torn down.  A day of rest follows the workout, there-
by enabling the body to rebuild.   Thus, the weight lifting routine in itself does not
build the body, but rather the days of recuperation, after each workout, do.  In like
fashion, evils in themselves don't benefit anyone.   Rather, its the rebuilding that oc-
curs after the damage has been done which brings forth the greater state of good.

7.  Sinners.   What is a sinner?   ANS:  A sinner is a person who loves evil and
then becomes in essence the evil loved.  Evil, too, is part of the transformational
mystery of love.   After all, there is such a thing as the Mystery of Evil.  It's some-
thing that has been ongoing throughout the history of mankind  ....  throughout the
tragic history of mankind.  It was Saint Bernadette Soubirous said that a sinner is
a person who loves evil.   She was the Lourdes apparition girl of 1858.  She is
the patron saint of asthmatics.


8. Worship.   What actually is worship?   ANS:  Worship is the act of attributing
the beginning and end of your existence to someone or something.

9.  Innocence.   Does Innocence mean naivety?   Does it denote docility?   Does
it mean to be meek?   Does it mean to be uninvolved?   ANS:  The answer is no,
in all four instances.   Innocence is freedom from sin  ...  freedom from spiritual
death.

9b.  Spiritual death is the absence of the sanctifying grace which should be flow-
ing through the soul of the person in mortal sin.   However, everyone is being giv-
en actual graces, in order for that person to be able to do good and even be spared
from evil consequences.   Actual graces are given, in order to enable the person to
either return to the state of sanctifying grace or remain in that state.  The opposite
of actual graces is temptation.

9c.  The Grace of God is the only thing which enables a person to do good.  In fact,
prayer is an essential element in preventing the absence of needed graces.  In addi-
tion, Sister Lucia Martos of Fatima fame, stated that a person can learn more via
prayer than through reading volumes of books.   Saint Augustine stated that prayer
rules God.  Thus, instead of going to fortune tellers, to see what your future holds,
pray for your desired future to become a reality ... if what you desire isn't sinful.

Prayer is the opposite of Calvinism, Determinism, and even Fatalism.

Ukranian Rite Church: The same faith as Roman Catholicism.






10.  Prayer.   What is prayer?   ANS:  Prayer is the act of reaching out to God.  An
attraction to the celestial world results in the instinct to pray.  When in doubt on how
to pray, overlook your doubt and just start praying.  You'll catch on, as to the way
prayer becomes effective.

11. Faith.   It is written that faith without good works is dead faith.   Quite frankly,
faith without good works is a sick joke and the ultimate hypocrisy.   What is faith?    
ANS:  Faith is the understanding of an infinite God that we, in our finite minds, can
not understand in any other way.    Faith is spiritual radar.   Faith is the translation
machine.   Faith is a supernatural gift that involves deeply recessed instinct.  It isn't
a matter of prejudice or opinion.  It's a matter of identification.

12.  Doctrine.   Why is it a matter of life and death for you to adhere to the correct
doctrine?    ANS:  This is because a person only acts according to his beliefs.  If
you believe wrongly, then you will act wrongly.   The atrocities of Nazi Germany
were entirely based on false beliefs.   If you don't get the doctrine right, your entire
world will go wrong.   You will then become a destroying angel, and later on, you
will go about, getting others to be accomplices to your living lies ...  should you
adhere to the wrong doctrine.

Before the Beginning of Time: Envy is why a 1/3 of the angels rebelled and targeted humanity for eternal destruction.



Author's Preliminary Note:   The prime
reference of the following text is a teach-
ing of the early church martyr, St Ignatius
of Antioch.  A concurrence of this text
comes from 18th Century Dominican
priest, St. Louis of Montfort.  It was
St. Ignatius, in the Year 100, who
coined the title, Catholic Church.


The title commonly used to define the only church that Jesus Christ ever
founded is not a Medieval invention.  The title traces itself to the original
apostles, their immediate successors, and the early church fathers.  As far
as concerns Louis of Montfort, he accentuated the phenomenon where the
Archangel Gabriel was actually making reparation for the Sin of Satan, on
behalf of all the angels, by saluting Mary the way in which Gabriel saluted
her.

The First Creation

Before time began, it was resolved in the mind of God that there would be be-
ings created with intellect and free will.  There would be two general species
created, so that one species would compliment the other one.  It was simultan-
eously resolved that the created beings would possess everlasting existence.
Now, before the creation of time, space, and physical matter, there was the
creation of beings of pure spirit.  This was the first species created in the
image and likeness of God.

These were beautifully created people with extreme agility and talent.  None
the less, a problem was presented by these creatures' existence.  They were
made to exist forever, but each one had to show commitment to the creator,
in order for each one to exist in a state of everlasting of life.  Within the
commitment would be expressions of gratitude and charity.  This was im-
portant, because the alternative for any spirit not transacting in gratitude
and charity was everlasting death. 

The Test

God would reveal to the newly created spirits God's Will, in order to see if
they consented in it, in order to see if they marveled in it, and in order to see
if they looked forward to its completion with anticipation.  Within the divine
will was the intention of God to become a member of God's own creation.
However, it was not a member of the newly created spirit community that
God willed to become.  Rather, God willed to become a member of the next
species to be made.  It was to be a species comprising material existence and
spirit.  It was humanity.

God was already pure spirit and had no desire to be redundant in becoming a
member of a species which was also pure spirit.  God was going to become
man.   In God's will to become man, there was the matter of providing for a
mother.   Being that God would need a mother, one specific woman, yet to
come, was chosen to be the mother of God.  This woman was the central fo-
cal point of God's will.

This woman was the spirits' test, in order to enable them to show fidelity to
God.  All spirits who would be overcome with a sense of delight and/or won-
der and/or compassion over the idea that God would become a member of a
new and foreign creation will have proven their commitment to, and therefore
charity toward, God.  They would have also shown their assent to honoring the
woman destined to be the mother of God.  They would then become instantan-
eously glorified and endowed with eternal life.

The War

Among the newly created spirits were some exceptionally gifted ones.  In fact,
some were created to burn with a white incandescent charity.   These were the
Seraphim.  Now, being exceptionally gifted has a danger to it.   The danger con-
sists in the fact that, the more that is given to you, the more that is expected from
you.

Among the spirits was an exceptionally gifted one of great beauty.   His name
was Light Bearer.   This can be translated into the name, Lucifer.   Lucifer re-
garded his species of creation as the most magnificent thing that anyone could
image.   In fact, Lucifer considered his species to be so magnificent that it would
only be right for God to want to become a member of it  ....  so thought Lucifer.

All that Lucifer had to do was be compassionately moved over the idea of a for-
eign species coming into existence which would include the woman destined to
be the mother of God.  Lucifer did nothing other than become envious over God
wanting to be made human instead of being made spirit all over again.  He simul-
taneously became filled with a seething hatred over the woman destined to come.

Lucifer resolved to rise to glory on his own power.   In sequence, he began a
rebellion within the spirit world, in the attempt to overthrow the Will of God.
However, within the spirit world was another spirit who also was exceptionally
gifted.  His conclusion was a rhetorical question by which he stated, "Who is
like the Lord?"   Translated into Hebrew, "Who is like the Lord" is mi cha el.
The mi cha el spirit made a stance to defend the Heaven which God had cre-
ated.   Other spirits joined him.   This resulted in the first and only World War
of the spirit world. 

The result of that war was that the army of the mi-cha-el spirit won.   In fact, the
result of the spirit war is summarized in the words of Jesus of Nazareth when he
said, "I saw Satan fall from Heaven like a bolt of lightning."


Lucifer, the magnificent creation who comprises pure spirit, had now became the
impure spirit.   A third of the spirit world did also.  In sequence, his lightning style
expulsion from Heaven resulted in of all the lights going out in him who was once
called Light Bearer.   He then became the Prince of Darkness.   The spirit capable
of doing great good had now become the Evil One.  He had now become the Devil. 

The Original Sin


Equal to the former beauty of the Prince of Darkness was his hatred for mankind ...
... even before mankind was created.   No sooner was mankind created than was
the Devil scheming to destroy it.   He started by targeting the first generation
woman whom God created as a gift to the first generation man.

The Devil, symbolically referred to as the ancient serpent, set off to target the
first generation woman.   His quest was to trick her into committing spiritual
suicide.   He figured that,  if he could get mankind to sin,  then God would dis-
own humanity and destroy it.   The Devil would then prevail in his hatred of
mankind, he thought.   This meant that he would never have to see the lady
chosen to one day come into existence and be the mother of God Incarnate.



Now, whatever the exact act was, know that the original sin is something that
can never be done again.   The sin could only be committed while in the pre-
ternatural state;  in the state of man before the original sin rendered him in the
state of vulnerability and mortality.   The eating of the forbidden fruit was sym-
bolic of partaking in something already produced through the knowledge of
good and evil.   The woman was deceived into thinking that she was being
given the path to everlasting life.   She was told that God was an envious liar
who was deliberately keeping her away from glory.

The man for whom the woman was created partook in her sin solely out of a
sense of peer pressure.   He wanted to please his mate.   In addition, mention
that they saw themselves naked, after having committed the original sin, was
symbolic that they had realized that they were stripped of grace.

When God intervened, after mankind's fall from grace, guarantee was made
that there would be an enmity between the offspring of the woman and the
diabolical serpentthat the offspring would crush his head when he would
strike for the offspring's heal.   The very act that the Evil One orchestrated,
in the hope of having mankind destroyed, assured that mankind would have
a savior.   It would now be guaranteed that the woman destined to be the
mother of God would come into existence.    The Devil couldn't thwart the
Will of God.

Take note on how the symbolic image of serpent accentuates the reality of
crushing the Evil One's head.   Thus, the intercepting of the serpent, when the
serpent lunged to inject deadly venom, is the operative image upon which to
reflect.   Holding down the serpent's head is symbolic of keeping evil at bay;
of keeping evil constrained.

The Ensuing State of Affairs

In all the spiritual world there is only one enmity;  one battle line.   It is between
the woman chosen to be the mother of God and the Devil.   To say that the great
enmity is between God and the Devil is to make the Devil an equal of God.   God
is infinite and incomparable.   The Devil is finite and he fools himself.   The apo-
calyptic enmity is between the Mother of God Incarnate and the Devil.   In fact,
she is also the Queen of Angels, meaning that she influences the actions and re-
solutions of those spirits who were created before she was.

The pertinence to this is that the Devil is the first person to commit blasphemy
against the woman destined to blossom with immaculate love for God.   Such a
thing is defamation.   In refusing to honor this woman, the Devil committed a sin
against God which required reparation.   That reparation would be made one day
by a spirit named Gabriel when he would say before the destined woman, "Hail, 
full of grace.   The Lord is with You.   You are the most blessed among all 
women."   The Archangel Gabriel is the Angel of Reparation.   The act of re-
paration made by Gabriel became the foundation stone of the New Testament.

The Crossfire of Love


When you pray the Rosary for someone,
Mary places that person between you
and her.

As soon as you start, you radiate currents
of love to Mary.  She instantaneously re-
sponds, by sending currents of her love
to you.

Currents of love simultaneously radiate
from the both of you, and the person for
whom you are praying gets caught in the
crossfire of your love.  If that person is
like a wilted plant, the currents will prop
that person upward...

The Rosary can bring life out of  persons drained, chagrined, and disheveled.
Yet, it will not result in a manic state, or anything that resembles a temporary
coffee high.  It will certainly not result in a Kool-Aid drinker's religious fanatic
state which is nothing more than the sin of spiritual and emotional gluttony.  In
as much, all extremists are gluttons.  Moreover, extremists dehumanize others,
resulting in the fanatic dehumanizing himself in the abusive process.

For those unfamiliar, Kool-Aid refers to cult members, being that some commit-
ted mass suicide via Kool-Aid in decades past.

The Rosary, due to its meditative feature, will show you that, even when you're
standing in front of an ocean, there is more  expansive room on the inside than
on the outside.  Despite the size of an ocean outside, the interior life is far more
expansive.  You can soar through the interior life without the need of brakes.

The Virgin Mary was known to have relayed promises to Saint Dominic Guzma
and Blessed Alan of La Roche, concerning those who pray the Rosary.  They are
actually line items of a pact that Mary makes with the devotee, due to her protec-
tive personality.  The promises are insurance benefits ... an heir's inheritance.
They are the effect in the Cause & Effect of praying the Rosary.   Plus,
the Rosary is for all seasons of human emotion and all circumstances in
which one may find him/herself.
 
Keep in mind the wilted vs generated bandwidth of human existence.

__________________________________________________________________

The following is what you get for radiating currents of love to Mary:

1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary,  shall 
    receive powerful graces.   2. I promise my special protection and the great-
    est graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.

3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, de-
    stroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.      4. It will cause virtue and 
    good works to flourish, and obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God.  
    It will withdraw the hearts of people from the love of the world and its 
    vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things.  Oh, that souls 
    would sanctify themselves by this means. 

5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, 
    shall not perish.    6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying 
    himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be con-
    quered by misfortune.  God will not chastise him in his justice, and he 
    will not perish by an unprovided death.  If he be just, he shall remain in 
    the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.

7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without 
     the Sacraments of the Church.     8. Those who are faithful to recite the 
     Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God 
     and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall par-
     ticipate in the merits of the Saints in Paradise.    9. I shall deliver from 
     purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.  10. The faithful 
     children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.

  11. You shall obtain all you ask of me through the recitation of the Holy 
        Rosary.  12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided
        by me in their necessities. 

  13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary 
        shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and 
        at the hour of death.   14. All who recite the Rosary are my children, and 
        brothers and sisters of my only Son, Jesus Christ.      15. Devotion to my 
        Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

        For more on this devotion advocated by saints, Successors of Peter, and very
        nice people, as well as brazen sinners who didn't deny the beauty of  Mary,
        despite the delay in their eventual conversions, take a look at:

... so that the power of angels can bridge into the lives of men.

St. Louis of Montfort once
made the observation that
the Archangel Gabriel was
the first person to make re-
paration to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary.  He did this
when he said, "Hail, full of 
grace.  The Lord is with 
you.  ... Rejoice oh highly
favored 
daughter.."  The
Archangel Gabriel willing-
ly did what Lucifer refused
to ever do.

Before time began, the Trinity revealed to the angelic world that there would be
a second creation with its apex being mankind.  It was furthermore revealed that
the Holy Trinity would unite with all of his creation by becoming man, doing so
through the second person of the same Trinity.  This outraged instantly outraged
the narcissistic Lucifer who wanted God to become angel.  This instantly resulted
in Lucifer harboring seething envy for the woman destined to become the Mother
of God.  At the same time, this exact same revelation inspired and infatuated the
Archangel Michael.

According to St Ignatius of Antioch (2nd Century martyr), God's Will was revealed
to the angels at the beginning of their creation, as a test of each one's fidelity or ab-
sence thereof.  Upon the revelation, Lucifer became envious and full of rage, refus-
ing to say, "Hail" to the woman destined to become the Mother of God.  Centuries
later, Gabriel made an act of reparation for Lucifer's absence of respect for Mary,
doing so during the Annunciation.  When we make reparation to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, we have placed on us the power of Saint Gabriel & the Archangels.
The angels of lesser power then interact with us, doing by acting upon our senses.
This affects our perceptions.

The Heart of the Fatima Message

Fatima began with the interaction with a single, solitary angel who announced him-
self as the Angel of Peace in one instance and then the Guardian Angel of Portugal
in another one.

The Fatima Message highlights the necessity of making reparation to Mary's Im-
maculate Heart of Mary.  If you don't understand the reason for making this type
of reparation, then all conversations about Fatima are pointless.  Therefore, what's
the point in making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary?

In order to understand, see:  Before the Beginning of Time:  Why a Third of the

We live in the Reign of Satan ... an ongoing reign of terror.  We live in the era of
terrorism, burgeoning Orwellianism, severe income disparity, and cronyism, where
governmental members, such as Tennessee's Stephen Fincher, significantly cash-in
on their offices.

Today is the era of genetic manipulation and other sins against nature.  It's the era
of sexual anarchy and other sins against justice.  Abortion is seen as a civil right,
even though its the coward's form of murder.

Lobbyists own the U.S. Congress, while America hangs from a cross of depleted
uranium.  Maoist China, the capitol of labor exploitation, hold the same United
States in $1.4 trillion of debt.  Labor exploitation throughout the third world is the
norm, and Maoist China hosts eleven ghost towns and a 5 million sq ft ghost mall,
amidst a workforce underpaid so severely that it can't afford to live in any one of
the 64 million homes which have idle electric meters.

The signs of the times ignited in Tunisia, spread to Egypt, traveled to Yemen, and
remain in Syria.  The signs of the times camped-out near Wall Street and other ve-
nues throughout Planet Earth.

Whistle-blowers keep being pursued and/or are made into the objects of retaliation.
In the chronology of it all, a pope resigned, out of exhaustion.

Hatemongers continued their diatribes and market fear, in the name of right wing
conservatism.  If a person objects to the sin of price gouging, which is a form of
stealing, the right wing radio talk show host will call him a Communist and incite
hatred for him, in the spirit of the Scribes and Pharisees who sought Christ's death.
America just saw its most corrupt and murderous politician attempt to usurp her
way into power, with smug presumption.

Meanwhile, America and Russia once again have strained relations with each other.
Workers in Bangladesh met a destiny of flames.  Southerner in the United States
are onnce again ratcheting-up the secessionist war cry, even though the northern
states' tax dollars have been carrying the south for decades.  The prophecies of
Our Lady at Quito have come to fruition, except in one prophecy. Mary's prophet-
ic words of Akita have yet to occur.

Add to today's equation the eight estrogenated chemicals in water supplies, as well
as the existence of hermaphrodite aquatic life.   An entire generation is turning itself
into a tattooed freakshow, while they make their cars toxic waste dumps of synthetic
fragrance products, reeking in sickeningly sweet proportions.

Plus, you cannot forget about human trafficking, the drug and murder trade of Mex-
ico, violent gangs elsewhere, the rise of asthma, the rise of autism, the rise of certain
cancers, the frequency of obesity, the culture of bullying others, pharmaceutical price
gouging, futures speculation price manipulations, the remnants of the 2008 Economic
Crisis, the American law mandating employers of conscience to provide things against
their conscience to employees, under penalty of law.  Ladies and gentlemen, we simul-
taneously live in Babylon and Nazi Germany, as well as Robber Baron American, an
Orwellian garrison state, and New Sodom.  This equation results in the following as-
sessment:

We live under the influence of the invisible Prince of Darkness, in a world where
greed-obsessed misers and narcissistic egomaniacs take turns controlling the out-
comes of human interaction.  The power of demons has already bridged itself into
the lives of men in this era.  These demons are the kings of the hill, though they
come from the molten pits.  They're the kings of most people's minds and kings
of their senses.  They're the most influential beings on the face of the Earth.  Yet,
those influenced by them, more often than not, aren't even aware of their solely
spiritual existences.

These angels of eternal death hate humanity with a seething passion.  Yet, people
act as if their promptings were humanity's raison d'etre.  These spiritual beasts
would destroy all of humanity instantaneously, if they ever had the power to do
so.  This is the goal they have been working to achieve.  Yet, they only have the
power that humanity has thus far given them.  Thus, it's an element of insanity
for anyone to kowtow to these demons, all the while empowering them.
Live the Mystery.  If you demand a detailed scientific
explanation, then you are basically that someone put an
ocean into a sand bucket and deliver it to you on your terms.

Q:  How does a person make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? 

ANS:  1} By offering your suffering and sacrifices in the fashion in
                  which Our Lady instructed the three Children of Fatima,
           2} and by the First Saturday Communions of Reparation.

1} Our Lady said that, whenever you endure suffering or make a sacrifice, pray: 

            "It is for the love of you my Jesus, in reparation for the outrages 
                      committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
                               and for the conversion of poor sinners."

     You may replace the phrase, for the love of you, with in charity of you or even
      in agape (awe-gah-pay) of you.   Agape is the Greek word for Divine love.  If
      you make this offering of reparation while enduring a physical suffering, you
      might literally feel as if a vice grip is loosening.   There is something liberating
      about making this type of offering  ---  especially to the angels. 

2}  On December 10, 1925,  Our Lady and the Child Jesus appeared to Sister Lucia,
      at a convent in Pontevedra, Spain.  At the time, Lucia was the only living Fatima
      seer.  Francisco and Jacinta died very young, exactly as Our Lady prophesied.
      During the vision, the Child Jesus said:

      Have compassion on the heart of your most holy Mother, covered with 
      thorns by which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment.  Yet, there is
      no one to be found who made reparation.

      Our Lady then interjected the following:

   Look, my daughter, at my heart, surrounded with the thorns through which 
   ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingrati-
   tude.  You at least try to console me and announce for me that I promise to 
   be present at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, for
   all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall con-
   fess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep 
   me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on fifteen mysteries of
   the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me. 
  
The reason for five Saturdays is to make reparation for the five principle ways 
in which mankind commits Blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

The Five Types of Blasphemy against the Immaculate Heart of Mary

There are five principle ways in which a person can blaspheme the Immaculate
Heart of Mary and therefore the Will of God.   Firstly, the Immaculate Heart of
Mary is symbolic of Mary's love.   In as much, blasphemy against her love blocks
it out of the lives of men and women.   Thirdly, the angels which magnetize to her
presence are left out of our lives, in that we become too insensitive to sense their
promptings.   In light of this, know that the five types of blasphemy go as follows:

1 -  Denial of her Immaculate Conception.   The Immaculate Conception is
not to be confused with the Virginal Conception.   The Virginal Conception was
prophesied in the Book of Isaiah and deals with Christmas time.   The Immaculate
Conception is the reality that Mary was preserved from Original Sin at the first
moment of her conception, due to the foreseen merits of Christ.   To state that
God didn't redeem Mary at the first moment of her life and then preserved her
in sinlessness is blasphemy against God's power.

2 -  Denial of her perpetual virginity.   For the record, in the Law of Moses,
if a woman vowed her virginity, became betrothed, and then let her man know
that she vowed her virginity, the man was bound to honor that vow.   However,
if the woman kept knowledge of her vow a secret, she would then be free of her
vow.   Mary was titled, virgin, in the scriptures.   Therefore, the public nature of
her vow gave it the status of a vocation.  It was her office.  It was her rank.  She
showed that she affirmed her vow of virginity.  Therefore, Joseph was required to
honor her vow.   Mary was perpetually virgin.   So too were other people in life.
Therefore, Mary's perpetual virginity not something incomprehensible.  It was
done before Mary was born and it was done centuries after she was taken into
Heaven.

3 -  Denial of her Divine Maternity.   Mary is the mother of Jesus.   Jesus
is God.   Therefore, Mary is the Mother of God;  the mother of God made man.
This is a matter of simple logic.   Moreover, the Virgin Mary is the mother of
everything that Jesus is.   Jesus is Mercy.   So, Mary is the Mother of  Mercy.

4 -  Inciting in children indifference and contempt toward Mary.   How-
ever, the same people will instill in these children the belief in Santa Claus and
reindeer.   Without Mary there would be no Christ.   Without her there would
be no Christmas.   Her blood flowed in Jesus' vessels.   The blood of Christ
came from the blood of Mary.

5 -  Committing sacrilege upon Mary's images.    Satan's tempting of people
to sacrilege Mary's images is the closest he will get to raping and murdering her.
You have to realize his seething hatred for her.   You will then realize his seething
hatred for you.   Think about what incites certain people to display a decrepit and
ornery scorn for Mary, as well as what instills in some a sense of delight in com-
mitting sacrilege against her.   To say the least, it's a war cry against God. 

Explanations for those who are Incredulous   (For those who don't believe)

When the archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary, he greeted her in a way no angel ev-
er greeted any human in history.  When he did this, he made reparation for the sin
of Lucifer and all the angels who fell from grace.  Lucifer's deadliest sin, of course,
was envy.  It was so deadly that "through the envy of the Devil, death came into the 
world."  He was furious over the fact that God would become man instead of angel.
He was especially filled with hatred toward the woman destined to be the Mother of
the second person of the Holy Trinity and the mystic spouse of the third person of
that same Trinity.

     Secondly, who was the most devoted man to the Virgin Mary in world history?
     ANS: Saint Joseph.   He is the key in the Battle between Heaven and Hell oc-
     curring in a church that was being deformed into completely unrecognizable
     state.  Incidentally, for those of you who are obsessively anti-Catholic, Saint
     Joseph is on the side of Heaven, being that he is in Heaven. 

                    The History of Salvation in Instantaneous Review

Love is eternal.  In fact, the love you have within goes with you into eternity, be it the
love of good or the love of evil.  Now, the mystery of love is that of transforming into
the object of your love.  God's love for mankind was such that he willed to transform
into man.  In his will was the unchanging choice that Mary was destined to come into
existence and become the ark of this transformation.

Lucifer was filled with envy over the destiny of Mary.  This is why Lucifer and his rebel
angels refused to serve the Will of God.  Time began.  Mankind fell.  Centuries passed.
Then came Mary.  Next came the Archangel Garbriel, to Nazareth, informing Mary that
she would be the mother of the long-awaited Messiah.

In the modern world, everyday is Opposite Day.  We're a world of legalized murder,
where killing the defenseless is regarded as a constitutional right in some places and a
religious duty in other ones.  We live in a world of legalized adultery, sexual anarchy,
religious hypocrisy, the desecration of things consecrated, the desecration of persons
innocent, occult practices, slave labor profiteering, mass media defamation, price goug-
ing, weapons of indiscriminate destruction, movies that rape the mind, radio talk shows
that market fear, attacks against ecology, sleight of hand politics, college loan debt, for-
closures, financially costly wars, astronomical national debts, a rise in the rate of certain
diseases, economic bankruptcies, emotional bankruptcies, pain, grief, loss, vengeance
sworn, and power plays by the most air headed and inarticulate of politicians.

There are also the human activities which are designed to fly under the radar, such as
drug cartel operations, other facets of organized crime, and money laundering.  In as
much, humanity is one continuous disconnect.   Humanity is self-destructing.  Now,
there is only one way to make all this end.   It consists in doing the reverse of what
made this chaos emerge.  First came the chasm in Christianity, thanks to Henry VIII
and the politically-back Martin Luther.  Later came the damage to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary.   Then came mankind's blocking of itself from the power of angels.
This guaranteed that human consciences would become distorted in the most dead-
ly of ways.   This resulted in human senses becoming distorted in predatory ways.
Paranoiac political views ensued.

Without reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Reign of Satan will stay on
course.   If you reflect on the World War of the Angels that transpired before time be-
gan, you will realize how this is so.   As far as concerns mankind in all of the strife
between men, it's written that, "... our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but 
against the Principalities and the Powers;  against the world-rulers of this dark-
ness, against the spiritual forces of  wickedness on  high."

In the world of Catholic devotion, there is the understanding that, at Fatima, the Vir-
gin Mary prophesied that her Immaculate Heart would triumph on Earth, followed
by a period of world peace.  The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is recog-
nized as the catalyst which will end the Reign of Satan.  It will then usher-in a period
symbolically referred to as the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Now, the Sacred
Heart of Jesus is symbolic of Christ's love/charity for fallen man.  Without the need-
ed reparation and the needed Fatima consecration, Hell will continue to spill out its
toxicity throughout the Earth.  In sequence, multitudes of humanity will spill into
Hell and become hideously distorted forever.

The Rosary of the Virgin Mary

The major objection that the arrogant have of the Rosary is that they assume
it to be a devotion for illiterate women and children, but not for lofty minds.

Well, the sacred scripture reads:  "Out of the mouths of babes come perfect
praise."  The Rosary can very much be a bringer of Wisdom - - - of Wisdom
radiated to you from Heaven.

Mary says, "And I present to you my son ..."
The Virgin Mary brings her realm to you.
You don't go to it, as if it's an impersonal
force field that you can reach with the help
of a cosmic map. The experience of being
in her realm is very personal.  In fact, the
Realm of the Virgin Mary is like a sapphire
dome room, where:

1} Sapphire is the symbolic color of Heaven
that exists in the depth of Mary's soul as much
as it exists throughout the expanse of angels &
saints.  2} Dome is symbolic of Mary's Queen-
ship over the angelic world and all of humanity.
3} Room is symbolic of the intimate rapport that
she has with her devotees.

Mary's sapphire dome room is symbolic of the state of purification achieved through
devotion to the Rosary.  This is because, when the state is achieved, you intensely
feel the sense of Mary's presence which is Heavenly.  In Jewish tradition, Heaven
is associated with the color blue, as in blue sky.

In the black Protestant world, blue is associated with circulation cut-off and the lack
of oxygen, thusly giving us a 1,4,5 music progression called the Blues.  In the Catho-
lic world, blue is oxygen, flight, and freedom to soar.  Blue is life-giving water and
the color one associates with Mary.  It's a beautiful color, not to be presented as ugly
by a Protestantism which tossed out mysticism and majesty.  The Virgin Mary is
majestic.  To state otherwise is a lie.

The interesting thing about finding yourself in Mary's Sapphire Dome Room is that
you will feel at home, as if you were always destined to be there.  It's there where
you will feel a casual rapport with her, in the midst of a beauty that fits you like a
perfect set of garments.  It's there where you will be fluent in understanding and
articulate in communication.  The surest way to gain entrance into the Realm of
Heaven's mysticism is, of course, via praying the Rosary or any Rosary-like de-
votion.   

Let it be repeated:  

If you want graces that are confided to no other people on Planet Earth, pray the
Rosary.   The Rosary is what can enlighten scholars, the illiterate, and children
simultaneously.  Very simply, the Rosary consists in meditating on the various
events in the lives of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph while praying the Our Father and
Hail Mary.  Thus, the Rosary consists in vocal prayer and meditative prayer si-
multaneously

If you despise the Rosary, you are simply too lazy to mingle vocal & meditative
prayer simultaneously.  Everyone who began the Rosary had trouble juxtapostion-
ing the two types of prayer.  This is due to the effect of Original Sin in us.  It's just
that some people had the patience and humility to persevere in the Rosary and over-
come the lack of spiritual gymnastics which comes with the effect of Original Sin.  

Ironically, some individuals who begin a devotion to the Rosary experience the
most mystical lights instantly.  But, it had nothing to do with them, except for a
thing.  They made their bodies sensitive via modern mortifications.  Modern morti-
fications are known as Work-outs, as in Weight Lifting, Spurt Training, Basketball,
vigorous ice skating, gymnastics, Self-defense training, long distance jogging, and
similar types of athletic training, as well as regimented dieting and/or fasting of any
variety.  It was graces bestowed upon them which resulted in them being so moved
that they returned to the Rosary, for more of the same.  If you did experience mysti-
cal intensity when you first started a devotion to the Rosary, know that it was Mary,
paying you an advance.

At this point, it is absolutely essential to understand one universal truth:  You can do
nothing without the grace of God.  Now, Catholics believe that Jesus of Nazareth is
God-made-man.  Thus, Catholics believe that, without Christ, a person can do no-
thing good.  Thus, if you bear fruit in prayer, its the grace of God making it happen.

One danger in having gotten consoling lights at the start of a Rosary devotion is the
spiritual dryness stage .... the arid stage ... a stage to which Saint Teresa of Avila was
so familiar.  When that stage comes ... and it is only temporary ... Faith alone suffices.
This means that, when you meditate on each mystery of the Rosary, and you are no
longer being moved as you were at the beginning of your devotion, simply think to
yourself, "This mystery really happened."
Whereas Jesus was born in the poverty of Bethlehem,
he is born in the poverty of your heart.  He doesn't mind.
The Rosary's Beginning

The present Rosary traces itself back to St. Dominic, in the early 13th Century,
during the days of Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi, and Anthony of Padua.  In
fact, it's predecessor was the ancient prayer rope used by monks, in repetitively
reciting either the Jesus prayer or the Hail Mary.

Now, as far as goes today's Rosary of the Virgin Mary, this devotion started when
Dominic performed a three day Category 5 hurricane-style penance, done solely
for the conversion of the Albigensians.   He then allegedly went unconscious, in
the process.   According to Saint Louis of Montfort, when Mary appeared to Saint
Dominic, she said to the effect:  

"Dominic, you are trying to cultivate where no rain has been sent.   In this 
type of warfare, the effective weapon has always been my Angelic Psalter."  

The Angelic Psalter is the Hail Mary prayed a number of times in succession, and
an individual Hail Mary is known as the Angelic Salutation.  Mary once told Saint
Dominic that the Angelic Salutation is the cornerstone of the New Testament.   This
is logical, being that the New Testament's starting point was when the Archangel
Gabriel appeared to Mary and said, "Hail, full of grace.  The Lord is with you.  
You are blessed among women."   The New Testament then went to its next step
when, after a long journey, Mary entered the house of her cousin Elizabeth, only to
hear her cousin say, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of 
 your womb."

The Hail Mary commemorates the two initial events of the New Testament.  There-
fore, only an avowed liar filled with hatred toward Mary would have the audacity
to claim that the Rosary is a non-Biblical pagan devotion, as many have done in the
past several decades.  In fact, John Paul II called the Rosary "the Gospel in Mini-
ature."  Thus, the Rosary is very Biblical.   Moreover, a number of Successors of
Peter had only had good things to say about the Rosary, even to the point of advo-
cating it as a devotion.

The Rosary is the simultaneous mixture of verbal prayer and meditative prayer.  
The subjects of the Rosary meditation are the events surrounding the incarnation,
life, sufferings, death, resurrection, and glorification of Jesus, as well as the glor-
ification of his mother Mary. 

The Verbal Part of the Rosary

The Rosary is usually preceded by first praying the Apostle's Creed.  Now, this
prayer is actually a prayer of simple (non-ritual and non-possession-related) ex-
orcism, being that it's spoken during baptism.   Praying it deflates Satan's influence
on your senses, being that it renews the power of baptism over Satan and his seeth-
ing minions.

Next is the praying of one Our Father, followed by three Hail Mary's.   This occurs
before the meditative part of the Rosary.   Concerning the three Hail Mary's, it was
revealed to Saint Gertrude the Great, while she was mystically being shown a fleur
de lys, that:

1} Except for God the Father, no one has the power that Mary was given.
2} Except for God the Son, no one has as much wisdom as she does.
3} Except for the Holy Spirit, no one is as kind as Mary.

The guarantee Mary gave to Gertrude was that those who pray three Hail Mary's
daily, in honor of the privileges granted to her by the Trinity, would see Mary at
the hour of death in an extraordinary splendor that will fill the dying soul with
heavenly consolation.   Such a thing will prevent a soul from succumbing to de-
spair during its last hour on earth.

After the three Hail Mary's, one prays a Simple Doxology.  That's the Glory-be,
as in Glory be to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as it was in beginning, is 
now, and forever shall be, world without end.  Amen.

You can even pray the Trappist monk version as follows Glory be to the Fath-
er and to the Son and to the Spirit who dwells within.  The God who is, who
was, and who is to come.

You can even try this version:  Glory, praise, and thanksgiving be to the Fath-
er of Heaven, the Son of the Most High, and to the Spirit who dwells within. 
As it was before the beginning began, is now, and forever shall be; the Reign
of Endless Ages.  Amen. 

Next comes the original Rosary:

Traditionally, beads are used.  However, they are not essential.   When beads are
used, however, one Our Father and Ten Hail Marys are prayed while meditating
on each individual Rosary mystery brought into prayer.  There are five joyous mys-
teries, five illuminative ones, five sorrowful mysteries, and five glorious ones.  In
fact, Carmelites have six joyous, six sorrowful, and six glorious mysteries in their
Rosary.  These meditations are the essence of the Rosary.   Even if you forgo the
praying of the Angelic Psalter (the Hail Mary's), you will still be engaged in pray-
er.   However, the verbal part of the Rosary helps to sanctify and even cleanse your
outer senses.

If you only have time to pray one decade of the Rosary, then you did your best, and
will have grace radiated to you in one way or another.  That is to say, you don't have
to pray all five decades at once.   Moreover, the closer to God (in contemplation) a
person gets, the longer it will take the person to pray a decade of the Rosary.   It will
even get to the point where the contemplative person's praying of one decade of the
Rosary will take as long as a basic person praying three of them.   Whereas the aver-
age person takes 15 minutes to pray five decades, the contemplative person will take
45 to 60 minutes, in doing the same.  Sometimes 90 minutes, depending on the person.

Keep in mind that members of a certain religious persuasion claim that the Rosary is
a non-Biblical thing of Satan, even though the Our Father and the first half of the Hail
Mary are in the Bible.   Now, view the mysteries of the Rosary posted below.  The
vast majority of them are mentioned in the Bible.   The bottom line is that those who
claim that the Rosary is a non-biblical anti-Christ devotion of pagan idolatry are one
of the following things:

1} Filled with laziness,   2} Filled with envy toward Mary,  3} Carry an evil view
of women and don't believe that any woman could be holy,  4} Are in synchronicity
with Satan's feelings of despair and despondency, assuming that the Rosary causes
those feelings.  However, those who condemn the Rosary under the claim that it's a
non-biblical act of idolatry are easily provable liars.  The Hail Mary prayer is from
the Bible, as are 18 of the 20 mysteries of the Rosary.

People who want nothing to do with the Rosary are those who have trouble simul-
taneously being engaged in verbal and meditative prayer.  They usually say that their
minds wander.   Well, even in verbal prayer a human mind conceived in the state of
original sin wanders.   In  class, minds wander, too.   Does that mean no one should
ever be in class?   Does that mean that everyone should remain stupid?   Well, as you
continue the Rosary, if you continue it, praying it gets more streamlined. 

A detriment to devotion to the Rosary for some is mood.   If you pray the Rosary on-
ly when in the mood, you are missing out on seeing  a wide and then deep view with-
in you.  Our Lady or the angels will get you in the mood, shortly after you start the
Rosary.  What they do is open an ambiance, and you find yourself in a rhythm.
  
Those Events Really Happened

In the Rosary devotion, there is the dry stage.   It's at that point when you need to do
the following:  Whenever you have trouble meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary,
state in silence the following during each mystery "This really happened."   If that
is all you do for the meditative part of the Rosary, then you have prayed.  You were
there in attendance.  You recalled at least one mystery.  You believed that each event
really happened.  This includes the Annunciation, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection,
the Ascension, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, etc.   This is what St. Paul meant when
he said, "Faith alone suffices."   You need not have any colorful emotionality or ex-
quisite intellectuality when praying.   You only need the faith which believes that the
events remembered in the Rosary actually happened. 

The Events Combined is the Manifestation of the Love of God

The Secret of the Rosary is this:  If each event of the Rosary happened at the same
time, you would see the complete spectrum of the Love of God being unleashed in
all of its attributes.    In each mystery God is unveiling and actualizing Divine Love
in the world of time and space. 

At the end of each mystery, traditionally prayed is one Glory Be (one simple doxo-
logy.)   It is suspected that Louis of Montfort began that practice.   Well, at Fatima,
the Virgin Mary told us to pray the following after each decade of the Rosary:

          My Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fire of Hell.  
     Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of your mercy.


In review, either go the contemplative route of praying Angelic Salutations at will,
while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, or use blessed beads and pray one
Our Father, ten Hail Mary's, and the Fatima Decade Prayer posted above, while
meditating on a mystery of the Rosary, every ten Hail Mary's.

Below is the list of the Mysteries of the Rosary.   After that comes brief mention of
Rosary-like Devotions:

 Joyous Mysteries

1} The Annunciation.  This was when the Archangel Gabriel informed Mary that
     she was to bear a son who would be called Son of the Most High and Son of
     God.  This means that the Annunciation marked the first time in history when
     the existence of the Holy Trinity was revealed to humanity.  She was disturbed
     at his appearance, because she was too humble to think that an angel would ap-
     pear to her with a message from on high.  In addition, when Gabriel said, "Hail,
     Full of Grace," he was saying, "Hail, woman free of sin."  He was affirming
     Mary's Immaculate state of soul.

     This is the mystery where you are most likely to perceive the Eternality of God. 
      In this eternality, you will see yourself.   This mystery of the Rosary is the corn-
      er stone of the New Testament.  It's where the Will of God throughout the ancient
      centuries unfolds in a three dimensional feature.   This is where eternity and the
      fullness of time intersect.

2} The Visitation.  This was when Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth.   As soon as
     Mary greeted Elizabeth, John the Baptist leaped in Elizabeth's womb.   This was
     because John was before the presence of Christ, and in the process thereof, the
     future prophet was immediately rendered into the state of sanctifying grace.  This
     proves the validity of infant baptism, in Biblical reference.   John and Elizabeth
     recognized whom Mary was carrying.

     This was when Mary spoke the Magnificat, stating that "From henceforth, all 
     generations will call be blessed, because he who is mighty has done great 
     things for me, and holy is his name."   This means that Marian devotion is
     certainly Biblical, even though the Bible is not the only thing involved in God's
     revelation to humanity.   Every generation after the Ascension of Christ had in-
     dividuals who honored Mary, calling her blessed.   When you pray the Rosary,
     therefore, you're fulfilling for the umpteenth thousandth time the Biblical pro-
     phecy that all generations will call Mary blessed.

3} The Nativity of Christ.  Whereas Jesus was born in the poverty of Bethlehem,
     he is born in the poverty of your heart.

4} The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple.  This was the time when Anna the
      Prophetess recognized the Messiah ... and when Simeon got to see the Messiah,
      as he was promised.   This was very moving and caused Mary to ponder the ex-
      periences of that day in her heart.   This shows that she was a reflective woman
      involved in what was transpiring around her.   She was no airhead, as the adher-
      ents to White Trash Protestantism claim her to be, in their Satanic hatred of her.

5} The Finding of Jesus in the Temple of Jerusalem.  After Joseph and Mary
       spent three days searching for Jesus, they found that he was safe.  They simul-
       taneously found him amazing the doctors of the temple with his questions and
       answers and understanding.   This is generally understood to be a prophecy of
       Christ's Resurrection.   However, here's a mystery to ponder:  What did he do
       during those three days?   Someone answered by saying, Charity Work. 

In the Carmelite Tradition:

6} The Immaculate Conception.  This consists in Mary being created free of the
     State of Original Sin the first moment she was created, due to the foreseen mer-
     its of Christ.   At Lourdes, Mary called herself the Immaculate Conception.   She
     is this in essence, not just in name.

The Illuminative (or Luminous) Mysteries

The paradox of the Luminous Mysteries is that they transpired in earthy and ruddy
settings ... not in palatial, glittery, or lime-lighted ones.

1} The Baptism of Jesus.   It was the Visitation all over again.   John the Baptist re-
      cognized Jesus for who he was, as he approached John, in order to be baptized.
      In humility, John told Jesus that Jesus should have been the one baptizing John.
      Jesus simply told John to baptize him.   Upon Jesus' baptism, there occurred the
      vision of the Holy Spirit descending upon Christ in the form of a dove.

      Now, John's baptism was a ceremony that initiated penance.  It had a strength-
      ening effect, and it was the starting point for cleansing.   This is why, after Je-
      sus was baptized, he went immediately into the wilderness and fasted for forty
      days and nights.

2}  The Wedding Feast of Cana.  Recount it.  Put yourself there.   If you do, then
      you are praying.   This was the site of Christ's first known miracle.   It did in-
      volve wine.   Therefore, it's not a sin to drink wine, as a couple religions claim.  
      Rather, it's a mortal sin to overuse wine to the point of injuring your health.  It's
      interesting that Catholicism was presented by the world as a suffocating and op-
      pressive religion.  However, the God of Catholicism, for his first miracle, turned
      water into wine.   Why?

3}  The Proclamation of the Kingdom of Heaven.   This is the multiple event mys-
       tery, in that Jesus spent a number of occasions saying that the Kingdom of God
       is at hand.  It's here and now.   In fact, Saint John the Evangelist, one of the Sons
       of Thunder, once wrote,  "This is Eternal Life."   This meant that the spiritual
       lights and Divine Presence that the early Christians absorbed into their senses
       were the same ones they would encounter in the next life.   The Life of Devo-
       tion is the preview of the life to come.   Thus, the Kingdom of God actually is
       at hand, being that God is everywhere, involved in all things.

4}  The Transfiguration.   Jesus took three apostles with him into a private out-
       door mountain area and transfigured into crystalline luminosity.   Moses and
       Elijah then appeared next to the crystalline Christ and started conversing with
       him.  What did the three say to each other?

       It got to a point where Peter hid his face while in the midst of overwhelming
       presences and awe-provoking sights.  Jesus then leaned over, touched Peter
       and said, "Do not be afraid.  It's only me."   The great lesson is that, no mat-
       ter how hideous are your sins, do not be afraid of Jesus.  He will not hurt you.
       The problem is in him abandoning you, leaving you to the demons who WILL
       hurt you badly.  

       During Easter night, Jesus appeared in the Cenacle, and the first thing that he
       said was, "Do not be afraid.   It's only me."   This is a very important motto
       of the all-powerful King of Heaven who can crush humanity instantaneously
       and does not do so ... immediately after being offended, that is.  God is slow
       to anger.

5}  The Institution of the Eucharist.   Saint Anthony of Padua said that, at the
      Last Supper, when Jesus took bread in his hands and broke it, he was consent-
      ing to be broken in death.   This is eternal heroism.   This was the first Mass.

Note:  The Carmelite Tradition had no sixth Luminous mystery, being that this set
           of Rosary mysteries was instituted by John Paul II.   Thus, they are a new
           addition the Rosary.  None the less, this set is very effective for meditation. 

Sorrowful Mysteries

1} The Agony in the Garden.  This is when Jesus said that his soul was sorrow-
     ful to the point of death.   This is also when he said, "Watch with me for an
     hour."  As if he were a lighthouse in each tabernacle, he silently communicates
     to the person in front of the tabernacle, "Watch with me."  After having reached
     a critical stage of agony, Jesus was consoled by an angel; assumably the Arch-
     angel Gabriel.   Gabriel is known as the Teacher of the Nations and he doesn't
     reserve his consoling to Christ.   However, you first need to offer your suffering
     for the conversion of poor sinners, before expecting consolation.   Then, the suf-
     fering will have become worthwhile.

     Jesus told Faustina Kolwaska, secretary of the Divine Mercy revelations, that
     the greatest cause of his agony was the knowledge that there would be a multi-
     tude of lukewarm humanity who would be indifferent to his sufferings.   At that
     time, he was wondering why he was to suffer intensely, if mass sectors of hu-
     manity were to be indifferent to his sufferings.  Of course, his consolation was
     those people who would embrace a life of devotion.   None the less, while he
     was in his agony, torches, pharisees, and the temple guard were traveling in his
      direction.

2} The Scourging at the Pillar.  The Romans tried to beat the kingship out of
     Christ.   They only brought out the helpless child, instead ... the actual Child
     of God.  This was an athletic event, in enduring the scouring.   Thus, the lazy
     are inclined to refrain from meditating on it.  Meditating on this gives a per-
     son a sense of honor.

3} The Crowning of Thorns.    Mocking the fact that he was a king, showing sup-
      eriority over him in the mocking.   This kind of thing happens to Christ today.

4} The Carrying of the Cross.   The actual cross had to be constructed at the site.
     So, carrying all the pieces alone wasn't a probability.  Thus came the involve-
     ment of Simon, the visitor from Cyrene.   This is where Jesus tolerated the most
     gutless of cowards who boldly walked into the street, to kick him while he was
     down.  He was afflicted with burning wounds and cramping by the weight of the
     Cross, all the while loosing his grip.  The gutless cowardly chicken hawks types
     wound up and kicked a person already down on the street.

    Some people act so tough when beating on the defenseless.   Jesus tolerated their
    presences.   When he met his mom on the way to Calvary, incidentally, it was a
    heart shattering moment of a level of mystery to which the vain and frivolous are
    clueless.

5} The Crucifixion.   This one is as involved as the Nativity of Christ.  A lesson
     is that the beginning and end of a life are packed with the most involved things.

      Those dedicated to the Crucifixion see the honor in it.  They also extend com-
       passion toward Christ, in the grief he suffered.  The Crucifixion existed in the
       most intense zone in the spiritual world.  It consisted in sacrificing everything
       for others, while watching your own creation kill you.   It simultaneously con-
       sisted in knowing that the vain, frivolous, and greedy will not ever care about
       what you endured for them.  

       For the record, Jesus does like to be consoled in his suffering and death.  There-
       fore, if you are a pretend Christian who says that crucifixes are evil, then you are
       a person who never brought consolation to Christ. 

In the Carmelite tradition:

6} Christ's Descent from the Cross, into his Mother's Arms.   The Virgin Mary
     didn't care how much blood was on her dress.  This crucifixion was devastating
     to her.  She was the only mother God will ever elect to have, and she saw the cre-
     ator of humanity get killed by his own creation.  Christ was then laid on her lap. 
     She had time to reflect.   Joseph of Arimathea was present, serving the function
     of defender of Christ's honor.  He made sure that he would get a burial.  John the
     Evangelist,  one of the Sons of Thunder,  was there, mainly because his original
     teacher, John the Baptist, influenced him into standing his ground.  Mone the less,
     Jesus blood came from Mary.  She saw it everywhere. 

The Glorious Mysteries

1}   The Resurrection.   In this mystery, we are dealing with a re-beginning.  There-
        fore, like Christmas and the Crucifixion, its too involved to mention between
        the parenthesis of an article.

2}   The Ascension.  This is another instance where the Bible ends and mystical ex-
        perience begins.   Did you ever wonder what was it like for the long awaited
       Anointed One to take his throne in the Heaven, doing so for the first time as the
       God-man?  The God feature was there before.  Not the divine man feature.

       The interesting thing is that his last words before ascending into Heaven was
       not "I will be with you always.   Even till the End of the World."   Before he
        ascended into Heaven, Jesus told his apostles and disciples to not go out into
        the world until they were clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit.   Thus fol-
        lowed the nine days of prayer in the Cenacle.   That nine days of prayer is why
        the Catholic Church uses novenas.   Incidentally, 'disciple'  means student.

3}   The Descent of the Holy Spirit.  It started with a wind you couldn't ignore.
       Thus, the townspeople and pilgrims gathered.  Peter, being the first Vicar of
       Christ, spoke in the name of the entire church.  Conversions ensured.  Then
       came the jealousy of the Scribes and Pharisees.   Then came the killing of the
       early Christians.  Next came Saul of Taurus, to end this Christian sect.  Then
       came the light.

4}   The Assumption of the Virgin Mary.  Meditate on her beauty and on how
       the patriarchs and angels waited for her to arrive in Heaven.   Now, for those
       who deny that Mary was assumed into Heaven body and soul, know that Jesus
       Christ was bound to the commandment, "Honor your mother and your father."
       This means that, if Jesus did not take his own mother into Heaven, he would
        have been dishonoring her and sinning in the process.   Thus, the Virgin Mary
        was assumed into Heaven, body and soul.

       Jesus was NOT going to let the body from where he came turn into insignifi-
       cant insect bait and eventual dust.   He was NOT going to treat his immaculate
       masterpiece as a dime-a-dozen person.  In fact, did you ever wonder what the
       King of Heaven thinks of his own mom?  

5}    The Coronation of Mary.   This was the ceremony where she was made
         Mediatrix of all Graces ... NOT the mediatrix for the forgiveness of sin.  In
         fact, Mary explained her power as mediatrix to Catherine Laboure in 1830,
         at Rue de Bac, in a Parisian chapel.   It was necessary for a human to be the
         Mediatrix of all Graces, so that the Commandment of the New and Everlast-
         ing Covenant could be fulfilled.  It was spoken by Christ at the Last Supper,
         when he said, "Love one another as I have loved you."   Mary is the master
         link in this chain of love.  In as much, the entire beauty of Heaven also exists
         in Mary's soul.

        Everyone who enters Heaven gets a coronation, though not as Queen of Heav-
        en.   This means that the fifth glorious mystery is pertinent to everyone who is
        not going to spend eternity in Hell.   Mary was given her throne, as the Holy
        Trinity showered its attributes and power upon her.  The Eternal Father re-
        garded Mary as his "highly favored daughter."   The Son of God called her
        mom.  The Holy Spirit cast his shadow over her, making himself her mystic
        spouse, thereby making Mary his immaculate mirror image.  If you don't
        think that she is the Majestic Virgin Mary, think again.   In fact, take time
        to meditate on it, while praying the Angelic Psalter.  Your eternal destiny
        depends on it. 

In the Carmelite Tradition

6} The Protection of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.  Carmel means, Garden of the
Lord, and this spiritually refers to the flowering of holiness and even eternal glory.
Now, the Carmelites attribute the founding of their order to the ancient prophet
Elijah.  Thus, it is said to have gone from a devout Jewish order to a Catholic one
that professes the belief that the fulfillment of the promises given to Judea came
in the person of a humble and non-peacock-throne Messiah who was the Lion of
the Tribe of Judeavwhen it come to confronting demons and illness and even death.
Thus, it involves belief in a Messiah concerned with eternity rather than temporary
life on Earth.

A part of the Carmelite tradition is the wearing of the Carmelite scapular.  Such a
thing is an extention of the Cloak of Elijah ... of the miraculour cloak.  The protec-
tion of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel involves protection from demons and misfortunes
which have a permanent effect.  It's protection from whatever peril you may find
yourself, be it the malice of people who try to destroy through falsehoods to natur-
al disasters to invasion to instituted injustices such as a sweatshop/slave labor
economy, and other evils.  Her ability to protect equates her with a protective
wall, a quick-response emergency rescue department, a guard, etc.

Rosary-like Devotions

This would be 1} The Seven Sorrows of Mary,  and 2} The Seven Sorrows and
 Joys of Saint Joseph.  Simply mediate on the sorrows or joys, while praying the
Angelic Saluation, aka Hail Mary.

The Seven Sorrows of Mary:

1 - The Prophecy of Simeon, during the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple,
         when Simeon said that a sword of sorrow would pierce Mary's heart,
         and that Jesus would be a sign contradicted, and that Jesus would be the
         rise and fall of many in Israel.
2 - The Flight into Egypt, when Herod wanted the new king of the Jews dead.
3 - The Three Day Loss of a 12 Year Jesus in Jerusalem.
4 - Meeting Jesus on the Way to Calvary, while he was carrying his Cross.
5 - The Crucifixion.
6 - The Descent of Christ from the Cross, into Mary's Arms.
7 - The Burial of Jesus. 

Saint Joseph's Seven Sorrows and Joys:

1 - Finding Mary with child, thinking that another man was the father, and ...
         receiving in a dream news from Gabriel that Mary was carrying, by
         the power of the Holy Spirit, the one who will save his people from
         their sins.

2 - The Poverty in which Jesus was born, and ...
        the visit of the shepherds, along with the news of the angels singing
        Hosanna in the Highest in the fields of Bethlehem, after having told
        the shepherds that a king was born that night.

3 - The Circumcision, and ...
        hearing the name Jesus as the one officially given to the Christ Child.

4 - The prophecy of Simeon that a sword of sorrow would pierce Mary's
        soul, and ...
        the confirmation from the Prophetess Anna and Simeon in the Temple
        that this was the Messiah, proving that Joseph was not mistaken.

5 - The Flight into Egypt, and ...
        witnessing the idols there basically becoming extinct.

6 - The fear of Herod's successor, Archelaus, as Joseph returned to Israel
        with Jesus and Mary, as well as ...
      the joy of living in the company of Jesus and Mary, in Nazareth.

7 - The three day loss of Jesus in Jerusalem, and ...
        finding Jesus in the Temple on the third day of searching for him.

If you begin praying the Rosary, and you've never done so before, you will find
that Catholicism and the Faith of Peter are far more rich and involved than you
had previously assumed.   In fact, a devotion to the Rosary will lead to the exper-
ience of perceiving, without seeing anything, what can be symbolically referred
to as the Shimmer of Angels.   If you do proceed with a devotion to the Rosary,
the angels will regard you with more respect than would a restaurant's maître
d'hôtel toward the holder of a gold card.
