SPIRITUAL BATTLE

Passion tide


It is time to step up our game in this Passion tide, 2021.


Our 40-days Rosary to Freedom from the Devil prayers finished on Palm Sunday.


From today and until Easter Sunday, we will only pray the Sorrowful mysteries.


- or -


why not pray the wonderful Stations of the Cross


Eucharistic Adoration


Holy Hour


Fast



The vision we share within our Step-by-Step Rosary community is positive. We are all realistic and believes that the year 2021 will a rough year for many people. 


The daily Holy Hour, may be an aim for us to be one with God.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, pray for us. 


It will take time for some, but our aim with the Step-by-Step Holy Hour Rosary is for the user to be able to have material for an hour of prayers in one space.

Our aim is, as the best we can, to give Hope, Love and Charity to as many people as possible and instead of seeing a Church door being locked - we see it as an opportunity for us to pray. 


Become aware of God's presence!


Our vision is that, if we are locked out, we ought to treat the entire Church as a Tabernacle. If not on the stairs, be on the ground in front of it, and pray. 

If you are allowed to enter your local Church, brilliant, but in worst case, the doors to the Church room is closed, well - Pray on your knees in the direction of the Tabernacle .


Be more than one person, build a community, keep a distance to each person to allow them to focus on Our Lord.


If you are allowed to enter the Church door to pray, in front of the Tabernacle. Stay for an hour. If you do not know what to pray, we offer our Rosary and all prayers to God.


This is to encourage your personal encounter with Christ.



  • Pray an hour in adoration of the Eucharist!
  • Pray the Rosary in front of the Eucharist!

  • Pray for an hour infront of the Tabernacle!
  • If you cannot come to your Church, and make an Holy Hour, pray the Holy Hour where you can.

  • Commence a 40-day Fast on Jan 7, 2021 until Ash Wednesday.
    Abstain all sugar related products and drinks until Easter Sunday.



This is a wonderful way to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.

It is especially powerful to adore Jesus in the Eucharist.


In the presence of the Eucharist, we pray to the power and sacrifice that it represents — the body of Jesus, who gave His life so that we may live.


The Eucharist adoration is in silence so even if you are in a group, you are non-verbal.


We need more Rosary prayers!


You can use the 40-days Holy Hour Fast as a "warm-up" as penitence.
And, if so, the Lent-Fast may become much stronger and focused.



WE DO NOT ABANDON OUR MOTHER CHURCH   



Our Lord died on the Cross on the Mount Calvary

and

Our Lord ascended from the Mount Olives.


Let us walk up the hill but come down a Mountain...



Keep praying your daily Rosary

Never let a good crisis go to Waste!

Pray with a sincere soul, with a pure heart, in the certainty of being heard and answered.

Ask her – she who is the Help of Christians, Auxilium Christianorum – to defeat the forces of the Enemy;

ask her – she who is terrible as an army set in battle array (Song 6:10) – to grant the victory to the forces of Good

and to inflict a humiliating defeat on the forces of Evil.


To protect our website and prayers:

Sancte Michael Archángele, defénde nos in prœlio;

contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis,

Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

Ámen

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –

by the Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls

Amen

THE STEP-BY-STEP ROSARY

please use our Step-by-Step version keeping Our Lady company

while meditating the actual mysteries for a total of 15 minutes according to her wish Dec. 10, 1925.


"recite five decades of the rosary, and keep me company for 15 minutes

while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."


1. PRE-PRAYERS


Instead of "just do the Rosary" we offer people some Warm-up prayers to prepare our mind and heart before the actual Rosary commence. It can vary and it is a optional beginning for the user. Prayers to St. Michael is always at the start - for protection. We may have some penitent prayers and/or prayers such Memorare, and prayers to St. Joseph and Our Lady.

 


2. THE ROSARY


The Actual Mystery texts are included. Not just the Headline or just the bible reference.

We include the texts as well as the reference to the scripcture to increase the medication. 

 


3. LEONINE PRAYERS


There are a few Step-by-Step Rosaries within our group which include the Leonine prayers right before Salve Regina, to include the Salve Regina prayer at the connecting medallion of the Rosary


4. PRAYERS FOR PRIESTS


The origin of this form of prayer is divine rather than human.

"The Rosary is then ended with a prayer for the intentions of the Pope" (Pope JP II in Rosarium Virginis Mariae 2002).

Our Lady of Akita said in her third apparition on Oct 13, 1973:

"With the Rosary pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests."

 


5. LITANY OF LORETO


Some of our Step-by-Step Rosary's offers an optional ending by for example praying the Litany of Loreto.

This litany was requested by Pope Leo XIII to add to the Rosary in his Supremi Apostolatus Officio of Sept 1883, in Superiore Anno in Aug 1884.

In other cases we offer a weekly variation of litanies.

 


KEEP MY LAWS AND MY JUDGEMENTS

Leviticus 20:22


BETRAYED BY A KISS

“If an enemy were insulting me,

I could endure it;

if a foe were rising against me, I could hide.

But it is you, a man like myself,

my companion, my close friend,

with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers”.

Ps 55:12-14

.

BREAK DOWN RESISTANCE

“Those I love have turned against me”

Job 19:19

"and stout young men

standing upon the walls

made a vigorous resistance:

and in this place there were many engines of war, and a provision of darts."

2 Macc 12:27



RESURRECTION

Our natural destination is Hell.

The Damned never see God.


Unto the end,

a canticle of a psalm of the resurrection. Shout with joy to God, all the earth,

...

"Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me."

Ps.65:1-20
