SALESIAN MISSIONARY

DEVOTION OF THE TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS - ENGLISH/ ESPAÑOL

IT WAS IN 1933, I MONS. JUAN RIU FARRÁN, was fifteen and a half years of age: I was studying in the Salesian Seminary of San Vicente of the Horts, near the City of Barcelona.

Around the 25th of MARCH, 1933, one of my Seminary companions, DANIEL ARA, of the Province of Huesca, in Aragon, said to me: " RIU, I have something interesting to tell to you: THERE IS A PIOUS BELIEF, THAT WHOEVER PRAYS TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS ON THE 25TH OF MARCH, THE FEAST OF the INCARNATION Of the SON OF GOD, OBTAINS FROM THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY, AT LEAST THREE GRACES.

That information was imbedded deeply in my mind, and when the day of the 25th of MARCH arrived, I prayed, with much devotion the TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS, requesting of the Blessed Virgin Mary, THREE GRACES: TO BE SALESIAN, TO BE A PRIEST, AND TO BE A MISSIONARY…and I confidently awaited in the fulfillment of the promise of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

On the 16th of July, 1935, after serving in Holy Mass, my companion DANIEL ARA and I, went on a excursion or stroll by the forests and hills, not far from the city of Gerona, where we were doing the Novitiate, in preparation for the RELIGIOUS SALESIAN PROFESSION. Towards the middle of the day, when we reunited with our Superiors, who accompanied us in the excursion, communicated to us the sad news that my companion DANIEL ARA, when trying to jump a brook, lost his balance and fell into the water and drowned.

On the 17th, a memorable day, at ten o’clock in the morning we began the spiritual Exercises in preparation for the religious Profession, that took place the 27th of JULY. At that moment, I realized, that the FIRST GRACE requested on the 25 of MARCH, 1933: TO BE SALESIAN was fulfilled.

In July 18th, 1936, the Spanish revolution and persecution exploded, in which we had to leave the Seminary running the risk to be captured and assassinated, as it happened with hundreds of thousands. These were hard and difficult years. The Spanish civil war finally ended on the First of APRIL, 1939, with the defeat of Spanish Communists, by the troops of General Franco, we would be able to return to our Religious Houses to continue our studies in preparation for the priesthood.

ON THE 15TH OF JUNE, 1946, in the Seminary Chapel of Madrid, I was ordained a priest together with TWENTY SALESIAN COMPANIONS, by the Bishop of MADRID, Mons. Leopoldo Eijo and Garay. The SECOND GRACE, requested on the 25th of MARCH, 1933, had been fulfilled.

On the 30th of AUGUST, 1952, I arrived in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to begin my apostolic missionary work in the poorest district of San Juan. And the THIRD GRACE REQUESTED MARCH 25th, 1933, became reality: TO BE A MISSIONARY. After ELEVEN LONG YEARS of missionary work in Puerto Rico, I was invited by Bishop MONS. JOSE FELIX PINTADO, to go to help him in the EASTERN SALESIAN MISSIONS OF ECUADOR, considered like WATERING a DRY TREE, from December 4th, 1964 to the present day, the Blessed VIRGIN Mary had fulfilled her promises.

Today, the DEVOTION OF the TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS has spread to many countries, thanks to the Marian devotion and fervor of the PHILIPPINE PEOPLE.

Opening Prayers

Blessed be the Holy Trinity, One God, now and forever, Amen. Glory be to the Father Who created me; glory be to the Son, Who redeemed me; glory be to the Holy Spirit Who Sanctifies me.

We pray and implore the Holy Spirit to come down and bestow upon us His Holy Gifts, so that we will be inflamed with the power and fire of His love.

And, once again, we gather ourselves together before You, dearest Blessed Mother, to pray for ALL Your intentions. We know that You will bring our humble prayers, together with Yours, before the throne of God and Your Beloved Son, and that, in Your loving hands, You will disperse of them, for You know best to apply them where they are needed most.

 

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity the unerring keenness of Your justice and the might of Your love. You are the Strength and Light of my soul. In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace and, I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations. I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You by Your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart I implore You Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You. Give me grace O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere "Speak Lord for Your servant heareth." Amen.

 

CONSECRATION OF THE HUMAN RACE TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

Most Sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Your altar. We are Yours and Yours we wish to be; to be more surely united with You, behold we freely consecrate ourselves today to Your Most Sacred Heart.

Many indeed have never known You; many, too, despising Your precepts, have rejected You. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Your Sacred Heart.

Be King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You. Grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.

Grant, O Lord, to Your Church, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to Him be glory and honor forever. Amen.

 

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY (for Religious and Laity)

Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Refuge of sinners, we who belong to the Marian Movement consecrate ourselves in a very special way to your Immaculate Heart.

By this act of consecration we intend to live, with you and through you, all the obligations assumed by our baptismal consecration. We further pledge to bring about in ourselves that interior conversion so urgently demanded by the Gospel, a conversion that will free us of every attachment to ourselves and to easy compromises with the world so that, like you, we may be available only to do always the will of the Father.

And as we resolve to entrust to you, O Mother most sweet and merciful, our life and vocation as Christians, that you may dispose of it according to your designs of salvation in this hour of decision that weighs upon the world, we pledge to live it according to your desires, especially as it pertains to a renewed spirit of prayer and penance, the fervent participation in the celebration of the Eucharist and in the works of the apostolate, the daily recitation of the Holy Rosary, and an austere manner of life in keeping with the Gospel, that shall be to all a good example of the observance of the law of God and the practice of the Christian virtues, especially that of purity.

We further promise you to be united with the Holy Father, with the hierarchy and with our priests, in order thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that threatens the very foundation of the Church.

Under your protection, we want moreover to be apostles of this sorely needed unity of prayer and love for the Pope, on whom we invoke your special protection.

And lastly, insofar as is possible, we promise to lead those souls with whom we come in contact to a renewed devotion to you.

Mindful that atheism has caused shipwreck in the faith to a great number of the faithful, that desecration has entered into the holy temple of God, and that evil and sin are spreading more and more throughout the world, we make so bold as to lift our eyes trustingly to you, O Mother of Jesus and our merciful and powerful Mother, and we invoke again today and await from you the salvation of all your children, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

 

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO ST. JOSEPH

"O dearest St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor and give myself to you that you may always be my father, my protector, and my guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me a greater purity of heart and a fervent love of the interior life. After your example, may I do all my actions for the greater glory of God in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death. AMEN."

 

PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us on the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do you, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

 

3 O’ CLOCK PRAYER

"YOU DIED JESUS, BUT THE SOURCE OF LIFE FLOWED OUT FOR SOULS AND THE OCEAN OF MERCY OPENED UP FOR THE WHOLE WORLD. O FOUNTAIN OF LIFE, IMMEASURABLE DIVINE MERCY, COVER THE WHOLE WORLD AND EMPTY YOURSELF OUT UPON US". "O BLOOD AND WATER WHICH FLOWED OUT FROM THE HEART OF JESUS AS A FOUNTAIN OF MERCY FOR US, I TRUST IN YOU".

HOLY GOD, HOLY MIGHTY ONE, HOLY IMMORTAL ONE, HAVE MERCY ON US AND THE WHOLE WORLD. AMEN. 3X

JESUS, KING OF DIVINE MERCY WE TRUST IN YOU!

 

THE CHAPLET OF THE DIVINE MERCY

(FOR PRIVATE RECITATION ON ORDINARY ROSARY BEADS)

BEGIN WITH…OUR FATHER…HAIL MARY…AND "I BELIEVE"…

ETERNAL FATHER, I OFFER YOU THE BODY AND BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF YOUR DEARLY BELOVED SON, OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, IN ATONEMENT FOR OUR SINS AND THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD.

ON THE SMALLER BEADS YOU ARE TO SAY THE FOLLOWING WORDS:

"FOR THE SAKE OF HIS SORROWFUL PASSION, HAVE MERCY ON US AND ON THE WHOLE WORLD".

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:

"HOLY GOD, HOLY MIGHTY ONE, HOLY IMMORTAL ONE, HAVE MERCY ON US AND ON THE WHOLE WORLD". AMEN

JESUS, KING OF DIVINE MERCY WE TRUST IN YOU!

THE MEMORARE OF ST. BERNARD

REMEMBER, O MOST GRACIOUS VIRGIN MARY, THAT NEVER WAS IT KNOWN THAT ANYONE WHO FLED TO YOUR PROTECTION, IMPLORED YOUR HELP OR SOUGHT YOUR INTERCESSION, WAS LEFT UNAIDED. INSPIRED WITH THIS CONFIDENCE, I FLY UNTO YOU, O VIRGIN OF VIRGINS, MY MOTHER! TO YOU I COME, BEFORE YOU I STAND SINFUL AND SORROWFUL. O MOTHER OF THE WORD INCARNATE, DESPISE NOT MY PETITIONS, BUT IN YOUR MERCY, HEAR AND ANSWER THEM. AMEN


COMMENCEMENT OF THE PRAYER OF THE TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS

OUR FATHER…

EACH PETICION IS REQUESTED AFTER ONE HUNDRED HAILMARYS ARE PRAYED.

AFTER THE TWO THOUSAND HAILMARYS ARE PRAYED AND THE 20 REQUESTS ARE STATED, PRAY THE GLORY BE To the FATHER…

 

PETITION # 1. BLESS US WITH THE GRACE OF PRAYER. It is our dialogue and communion with God. Teach us how to cultivate and experience the power of prayer in ourselves. Give us the grace to pray in every opportunity we have and uplift every task that we do as a prayer which we offer to Jesus. Let us remember what our Mother Mary said, "that God has chosen to use us in His great plan of salvation of mankind". So, let us not pray only for ourselves but for all mankind, particularly for the conversion of those who are not now in God’s grace.

PETITION #2. WE pray for Peace. Let peace begin within us and from us, so that we, in turn, may spread peace in the world to all mankind. Heal us of our faults and weaknesses and let us realize that if we want to be cleansed and be healed, we must first have total forgiveness and love in our hearts. Let us not dwell in things that are not of God, like anger, pride, envy, and selfishness. But instead, pour in our hearts, through the Holy Spirit, the gift of love, humility, patience, forgiveness and understanding. It is only through dying to one’s "self" that we can truly have Peace. Amen.

PETITION # 3. We pray for the CONVERSION OF SINNERS, the unbelievers, and for all the spiritually poor, so that they will be filled with the love of God. Let men turn against sin and against the enemy. Give the grace of going back to Jesus by touching the hearts of sinners, and especially the hearts of those who have left the Catholic Church to join other sects and beliefs. We pray for the coversion of Atheists, the pagans, the Jews, and the Moslems. We invoke the Holy Spirit to enlighten the minds of the heretics and schismatics, and to revive in the hearts of lukewarm souls the fervor and love of God.

PETITION # 4. We pray for the prevention of ABORTION. Dear God, let this horrible crime stop. Let All who contemplate on abortion fully understand that the unborn child is a HUMAN BEING who has a SOUL, and killing the unborn is a grievous, mortal offense against God, the Creator of Life. Let your grace fall upon all people so that they will respect, defend, and uphold the SANCTITY OF LIFE, not only of the unborn, but of the aged, the dying, the handicapped, and the unwanted as well. Also, let the confused, who are on the verge of committing suicide very carefully weigh in their minds God’s 5th commandment, "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" and avoid this serious sin against God.

PETITION # 5. We pray for those who are in ANY FORM OF ADDICTION that disrupts family relationships, those addicted in alcohol and drugs, those addicted in the flesh, or addicted in any kind of vice. Touch them, O Mother Mary, and free them from the snares of Satan who now envelop them. Bring them back, reunite, and heal the families that have been broken and break instead these evil influences that destroy families.

PETITION # 6. We pray for the grace to know and appreciate the importance and value of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and pray for an increased frequency in the reception of the Sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist. May every prayer and spiritual work we do lead us to the Holy Mass, because the Holy Mass is the highest form of prayer and the greatest offering for the reparation of sins, and Jesus is there, his undying love for mankind manifested as He relives His sacrifice in Calvary to save us. May these sacraments renew us each day, and strengthen us spiritually in our crusade to serve Jesus and Mother Mary, in spreading their messages to whomever we talk and see.

PETITION #7. We pray for more vocations. Please put into the hearts of young people the awareness of service to God through the increase in vocations. Let parents encourage their children and give them an upbringing filled with an awareness of their blessed state in life. Bless all seminarians who are now studying and preparing themselves to the priesthood. Strengthen them and give them perseverance. Guide them and guard them for they belong to You, Lord Jesus.

PETITION # 8. Teach us the DAILY READING OF THE HOLY BIBLE and spiritual books because God Himself talks to us when we read the scripture of His life, His teachings and His holy words in the Bible. May the Holy Spirit enlighten our minds and give us the grace to live the gospel, and to put into practice all that we’ve read of the words and ways of Our Lord Jesus in our daily live, in essence, "To imitate Jesus and Live The Word".

PETITION # 9. We pray for Pope John Paul II, the visible representative of Christ in the Church and the 266th successor of Peter. Only in Peter has Christ built his church. So, with the faith of Peter in these times of greatest darkness and apostasy, let us pray for support and protection of the Vicar of Christ, the Pope. May Priests and Bishops remain loyal to the true faith through their obedience to the Pope, preach loudly in word and example what Jesus Himself has instructed Peter to be, the foundation of His church and the irreproachable presence of the Truth, and may they remain united with the Pope and help him carry his large Cross to Calvary.

PETITION # 10. We pray for the increase of PRAYER GROUPS and CENACLES. May we have the grace to live the messages of Our Mother Mary in our hearts, that we may give examples by living them in our daily live, so that we may in turn work and inspire the formation of more prayer groups. Bless and protect the prayer groups and cenacles from disunity and discord but rather bestow upon them your special graces – in love and unity. Amen.

PETITION # 11. We pray for the ACCEPTANCE OF OUR OWN CROSS – and abandon ourselves completely to JESUS CHRIST and His Divine Will. As He Himself said, "If you want to be WITH ME, pick up your cross and follow ME, for whoever picks up his cross and looks back, is not worthy to follow Me". So, whatever trials and sufferings we encounter, may we offer them to Jesus and not be afraid, because He is with us, when we put our faith, trust, and confidence in Him.

PETITION # 12. We pray for our DELIVERANCE FROM THE ENEMY, the devil. Mother Mary, please rescue us the moment Satan or any other evil spirit tries to tempt us to fall into sin and deliver us from all distractions that pull us away from the path that leads to You and Jesus. Grant us the wisdom to discern, so that we will be able to distinguish right from wrong, good from evil. You have obtained from Your Divine Son that all the advocates of the rosary shat have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death. So, in this great battle for souls, let us arm ourselves with the power of the rosary and the Holy Eucharist, wear the miraculous medal and the scapular with faith, to save us from the eternal fire of hell.

PETITION # 13. We pray for the grace of FASTING not only from food, but from worldly and material things and offer them to You in sacrifice. Let our fasting from food and the materialism of this world be our offering for the atonement of our sins and in reparation for the sins of mankind. Make us aware of our priorities in life, which is the salvation of souls, and the detachment from the materialism that this world falsely offers. All these hinder us from the love, knowledge and service of God.

PETITION # 14. We pray for the INFIRM, THE AGED, THE SICK and the DYING. Comfort and bless them in their last days. May they lift and offer their life’s sufferings to God, receive the last sacraments, obtain pardon for their sins, and thereby merit the fullness of God’s grace. In the end, may Our Lord and His Blessed Mother take them safely home to their eternal abode in Heaven.

PETITION # 15. WE pray for the POOR, the HUNGRY, the HOMELESS, and in particular, the widows and the orphans, for it is especially in them that we see the Lord. Bless them in their needs, O Lord, and give them their means of support. We also pray for those who are in prison. Touch their hearts for total conversion and grant them Your peace. We pray that these beloved children of God may be spared from oppression, and may we never refuse their cry for help.

PETITION # 16. We pray for the POOR SOULS IN PURGATORY, especially for those who have stayed there the longest and who have no one to pray or make sacrifices for them. We also pray in particular for the souls of (here mention their names silently). May they, who suffer such dreadful torments, by our constant prayers, be freed from their sufferings and finally released from their pains. May they enjoy the beatitude of Heaven, where, prostrate before the throne of God, they never cease to pray for those who helped them until they see their benefactors safely in Heaven.

PETITION # 17. We pray for our PRIESTS, the Religious and the Missionaries who have consecrated their lives to serve Your people spiritually in love and diligence. May they be renewed in spirit and faithful to their vows and commitment to God. Keep them from sickness, temptation and harm, so that they could give more of themselves unselfishly and become more zealous to their apostolate.

PETITION # 18. We pray for ALL FAMILIES and OUR OWN FAMILIES, too. May families always be together in love and in prayer. Let children honor and obey their parents and let parents love and protect their children the way God love and protects His children. We pray that wives and children be spared from abuse and molestations of all sorts. May all families grow spiritually in unity and faith with Jesus and Mary, and may God bestow on us His blessings and His Divine Mercy and protect us from the terrible chastisement that is to come.

PETITION # 19. We pray for those WHO ARE IN PILGRIMAGE TO SEEK YOU. May all who seek you, Jesus, through our Mother Mary, find happiness and fulfillment in their search for You. We also pray for all travelers that they may be protected from harm and safely reach their destinations in Your grace.

PETITION # 20. We pray for our own intentions. (here mention them silently…) We consecrate ourselves to You, O Lord, and we pray for Your grace and acceptance of all the intentions that with humility and in accordance to Your will, we have brought at the foot of Your altar today. We ask all these from the Father with the intercession of our Mother Mary, in Jesus’ Most Holy Name. Amen.
