Black Saints, Mystics, Holy Folk (The Ancient African Liturgical Church, Vol. I (to year 599 A.D.) Smith, James Wesly (Author) August, 2007, Third Ed. 456 p. Paperback 19.95 digital editions,16.99, contact www.booklocker.com/3088.html. (ISBN: 9781609103590; ISBN 978-1-60145-088-3; ISBN digital:9781609103590, http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn9781609103590


For apple itunes/apple bookstore. Other digital versions available later this month ), E-book: ISBN 978-1-60910-359-0 First published, August, 2007., in this third edition, folks traditionally surmised that Christian spirituality was brought into the African continent. Author James Wesly Smith indicates in this 456 reference tome. Not so fast. Yeshua (Jesus) grew up in Africa until age 6 or 7 to escape ing Herods 10 assassins, Smith points out. He cites the Christian Bible references of Hosea 11:1, and Matthew 2:13-15, Out of Africa, I called my son.


Blending the lists of Coptic, Orthodox and Latin Rite friends of God called saints, Smith points out that more than 56,000 Black and African-heritaged folks labored in the faith. He says it was partly that because places such as Kemet (Egypt) was Romes bread baskets subject to higher taxes, this forced many holy folk into the deserts where the faith thrived.


In folksy style, Smith also goes onto to say that in ancient Macedonian, Greek, Roman, or even Ottoman Turkish maps, the term North Africa, is found nowhere. The attorney author concludes it as a colonialist construct to denigrate the achievements and contributions of holy Africans.

Additional information:


57,000+ Black Saints, Martyrs, and Holy Folk Discovered in the Ancient African Church before 599 A.D.


Out of Egypt I called My Son See Hosea 11:1, Matthew 2:13-15


Why do you follow a white god? Why do you worship in institutions that never accepted you? Stinging questions Black Catholics and others ethnic perennially parry from members in the historically Black Churches.


The questions traditionally have included queries from Al Islam (Muslims) believers in the urban areas.


But now evidence exists that Christianity (also) sprang out of the African, as opposed to the Saudi Arabia origination of the Prophet Muhammad and his original followers. Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folks (The Ancient African Liturgical Church, Vol. I). seeks to correct the oversight, especially as the Church grows by leaps in bounds in the Africa and the geologic and historical lands of Black Diaspora.


Such proofs can be gleaned from the 57,000 African Saints in the early 500 years from when Jesus (Yeshua) commissioned His apostles to go forth and teach all nations.


Horrors of enslavement and colonialism still haunt and direct the Black Church experience in the church.(The barbaric practice still exists in some parts of Africa and elsewhere). But now, Black Christians, Catholics and ethnics can show that Yeshua, Jesus the Christ, grew up in Africa, personally establishing an African root to His vine, and the branches.


Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk shows that the once powerful African Church had at least five apostles ministering there before their departures to other lands. Cephas (Simon Peter) in set up a church in Babylon, Egypt before going to Antioch and finally Rome. Phillip visited and assisted the Ethiopian Eunuch (See Acts 8:26-39). Nathaniel Bartholomew Levi ministered in Africa.


Tradition calls Matthew, Apostle to the Ethiopians (See http://www.traditioninaction.org/SOD/j092sdMatthew_9-21.htm


And Jude Thaddeus Lebbeus (Jesus cousin) healed there, according to Black Saints introductory chapters. The Coptic branch of the one, holy catholic (which means universal) Church still manifests proud traditions of the Holy Familys visits. (See Isaiah 19:1, Matthew 3: 13-15. http://touregypt.net/featurestories/journey.htm).


Important information, inasmuch United States Bishops (and those elsewhere) blew an opportunity to evangelize the formerly enslaved after the American Civil War.


As the Holy Catholic church struggles in the West, the Church African (originally part of the oriental Church), finds the leaves of growth regaining the light of day, bursting thought the concrete of neglect, persecution, and heresies of the Vandals, and Arians who nearly destroyed the African Church during the AD 400s.

Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk (The Ancient African Liturgical Church,Vol. I)
BOOK FOREWORD


Before there was Bishop TD Jakes, Noel Jones, Drs. Price & Creflo Dollar, there was Bishop Athanasius, Augustine, Macarius, Antony, --and there was Anub and Amoun. Yes! More than 56,000 Africa Black saints (in groups), from the early church (we mention a few; tell where to find the rest).


To answer our brethren from Al Islam, no longer will you have to shirk, when you hear "Why do you follow a religion from Europe.� You will be able to show that Christianity-- the faith of Our Lord Yeshua, Jesus the Christ-- came out of Africa, along with its precursor, the African Essenne and Therapeutae movements. Get yours today!


Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk (The Ancient African Liturgical Church,Vol. I)


Now Volume I, Second Edition,contains more than 450 +plus pages of lists 57,000(grouped) Black Saints, Mystics, Holy Folk, in 1000 lines of information about Black Saints of African Heritage to the year 599 A.D. (Later volumes will list those to the present date).


SO HERE NOW! Immediately accessible.


Most Blacks know about the African St. Augustine, and his mom, St. Monica. Some might be vaguely familiar with St. Martin de Porres, or St. Benedict the Moor. But few know the writer of the Gospel of Mark and secretary to both Apostles Peter and Paul--was African, Mark! We have not been taught about the Saints Clement and Denis of Alexandria, nor St. Catherine the Great. Thousands of Desert Fathers and Mothers who followed Christ in the first 599 years of the Church have been hidden from us.


How many of us know about St. Macarious the Elder, and St. Macarious the Younger, Apa Noub, Ammon the Great, St. Cyprian of Carthage, Pope St. Victor I-- all African friends of God (called (I>saints)


The African saints survived, either here, or in Christ because they had the faith of a mustard seed. Did you know there were more than 57,000 Black Saints and martyrs before the year 599 A.D.? Read about it!

The Divine Mercy Novena


Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday.


In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:


"On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls."


The different souls prayed for on each day of the novena are: [ prayers below ]


DAY 1 - All mankind, especially sinners


DAY 2 - The souls of priests and religious


DAY 3 - All devout and faithful souls


DAY 4 - Those who do not believe in Jesus and those who do not yet know Him


DAY 5 - The souls of separated brethren


DAY 6 - The meek and humble souls and the souls of children


DAY 7 - The souls who especially venerate and glorify Jesus' mercy


DAY 8 - The souls who are detained in purgatory; and


DAY 9 - The souls who have become lukewarm.


This is prayed along with the Divine Mercy Chaplet.


1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.


2. Then on the Our Father Beads say the following: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.


3. On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.


(Repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).


4. Conclude with (three times): Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.


First Day Today bring Me all mankind, especially all sinners.


Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins, but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It.


We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.


Second Day


Today Bring Me the Souls of Priests and Religious. Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in us, that we may perform worthy works of mercy, and that all who see us may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company [of chosen souls] in Your vineyard - upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing.


For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation, and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.


Third Day


Today Bring Me All Devout and Faithful Souls.


Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in the great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It.


We beg this of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.


Eternal Father, turn Your Merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection.


Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.


Fourth Day


Today Bring Me Those Who Do Not Believe In Me and Those Who Do Not Know Me Most Compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world.


Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who as yet do not believe in You or do not know You.


Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.


Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in Your Son, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.


Fifth Day


Today Bring to Me the Souls of the Separated Brethren Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of our separated brethren.


Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.


Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of our separated brethren, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces obstinately persisting in their errors.


Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your Own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.


Sixth Day


Today Bring Me The Meek and Humble Souls and the Souls of Little Children Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart."


Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children.


These souls send all heaven into ecstasy, and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance.


These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek and humble souls, and upon the souls of little children, who are enfolded in the abode of the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight you take in them: bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.


Seventh Day


Today Bring Me The Souls Who Especially Venerate and Glorify My Mercy Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your Mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself.


In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident in Your Mercy. These souls are united to Jesus and carry all mankind on their shoulders.


These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.


Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy and their spirit, overflowing with joy, sings a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High!


I beg You O God: Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them, "I Myself will defend as My own glory, during their lifetime, and especially at the hour of their death, those souls who will venerate My fathomless mercy."


Eighth Day


Today Bring Me The Souls Who Are In the Prison Of Purgatory Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet who must make retribution to Your justice.


May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of purifying fire, that in that place, too, the power of Your mercy may be praised. Eternal Father, turn Your most merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded, manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way than through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and Good Friday Devotions!


Holy Saturday Prayers compassion. Amen.


Ninth Day


Today Bring Me The Souls Who Have Become Lukewarm Most Compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart.


In this fire of Your pure love let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love; and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.


Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three- hour agony on the Cross: let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen


The Rosary of God The Father


The Rosary of the Father, in five stations, helps us to reflect on His mercy, which "is stronger than evil, stronger than sin or death" (Dives in Misericordia, V111,15.)


It reminds us that mankind can and must become an instrument for the triumph of the Love of the Father, giving its "yes" to Him in fullness and thus taking its place in the circle of Trinitarian Love that renders it "the living glory of God."


We ought not replace the Rosary of Mary by that of the Father. We ought rather, after reciting the entire Marian Rosary of 15 stations, ask "Our Mother in Heaven" to recite the Rosary of the Father with us.


She will do that and with us will invoke our Heavenly Father! ABBA, Pater will not be able to resist our call; He will come and will make "heavens and earth new."


First Mystery:


We contemplate the triumph of the Father in the Garden of Eden when after the sin of Adam and Eve, He promises the coming of the Lord.


"The Lord God said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you earth all the days of your life.


I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at His heel." - (Gen 3,14-35)


1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's,Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.


Second Mystery:


We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of the fiat of Mary during the annunciation.


"The Angel said to Mary: "Do not fear Mary. You have found favor with God. You shall conceive and bear a son and give Him the name Jesus. Great will be His dignity and He will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of David His Father. He will rule over the house of Jacob forever and His reign will be without end." (Luke: 1,30-33)


1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Fathers,Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.


Third Mystery:


We contemplate the triumph of the Father in the garden of Gethsemani when He gives all His power to the Son.


"Father, if it is Your will, take this cup from Me; yet not My will but Yours be done. An angel then appeared to Him from heaven to strengthen Him. In His anguish He prayed with all the greater intensity, and His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22, 42-44)


1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Fathers,Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.


Four Mystery:


We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of every particular judgement.


"While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him and was deeply moved. He rant out to meet him, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him. The son said to him, Father, I have sinned against God and against you: I no longer deserve to be called your son.


The father said to his servants: Quick! bring out the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and shoes on his feet. Take the fatted calf and kill it. Let us eat and celebrate because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life. He was lost and is found. (Luke 15, 20-24)


1 Hail Mary and 10 our Fathers,Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.


Fifth Mystery:


We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of final judgement.


"Then I saw a new heavens and a new earth. The former heavens and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer. I also saw a new Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out heaven from God, beautiful a a bride prepared to meet her husband.


I heard a loud voice from the throne cry out: "This is God's dwelling among men. He shall dwell with them and they shall be His people and He shall be their God who is always with them. He shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away." ( Rev: 21-24)


1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Fathers, Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.

CONSIDERATION.


CONSIDER THE SORROWFUL AND IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY NOW PIERCED WITH THE SWORD OF SORROW LONG AGO PREDICTED, RECEIVING INTO HER ARMS THE SACRED BODY OF JESUS, WITH INCOMPARABLE SORROW SHE TENDERLY PRESSED THE SACRED HEAD OF HER DIVINE SON TO HER IMMACULATE HEART;


THE MOST PRUDENT MOTHER AND GREAT CO-REDEMPTRIX, SEATED ON THE GROUND, WORSHIPPED HIM WITH GREAT AFFECTION AND DEVOTION.


PRAYER.


O SORROWFUL MOTHER, MARY MOST HOLY, HELP US TO REVERANCE THY DIVINE SON IN LOVING IMITATION OF THEE, PARTICULARLY WHEN WE RECEIVE HIS LIVING BODY, BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY IN HOLY COMMUNION. END.

PRAYER.


O LOVING WISDOM OF OUR GOD, HELP US TO CONQUER SIN, THAT THROUGH THE INFINITE MERITS OF THY BITTER PASSION AND DEATH AND BY THY DIVINE GRACE, WE MAY BE BURIED DEEP IN THY SACRED HEART AND FROM THAT BURNING FURNACE OF LOVE, WE MAY ASCEND TO THE TEMPLE OF THE ELECT, THY SACRED HEAD, OUR LIFE IN TIME AND IN ETERNITY, WITHOUT WHICH WE CAN DO NOTHING AND ARE NOTHING. END.

O JESUS, ETERNAL WISDOM, INFINITE LOVE, PERPETUAL LIGHT, WHOSE SACRED HEAD ILLUMINATES THE DARK WAY OF THE CROSS, AND EVERY AVENUE OF HUMAN SUFFERING, WHOSE LOVING HEART HAS FELT THE KEEN PAIN OF REJECTION AND INGRATITUDE, AND HAS EXPERIENCED THE AGONY OF KNOWING TO WHAT DEPTH OF SUFFERING WAS ENDURED BY THY MOST TENDER MOTHER. O LIGHT FAR BRIGHTER THAN TEN THOUSAND SUNS;


ONLY LIGHT OF THY VIRGIN MOTHER MARY, GREAT CO-REDEMPTRIX AS SHE STOOD BENEATH THE CROSS; LIGHT OF ALL THE SAINTS SHINE INTO THE INNER MOST DEPTH OF OUR SOULS WHICH WE CONSECRATE TO THEE, TO COMFORT THY OWN MOST HOLY SOUL SORROWFUL UNTO DEATH AND SUFFERING STILL IN THE SACRAMENT OF THY DIVINE LOVE. O GLORY OF THE ANGELS; O GLEAMING CRYSTAL IN WHICH IS REFLECTED ALL THE COLOURS OF GOD'S GRACE; WE UNITE THE POWERS OF OUR OWN POOR SOULS TO THINE FOREVER.


O TEMPLE OF THE ELECT, WHERE IN THE UNCREATED TRINITY IS ADORED WITHOUT END; SET THY SEAL UPON US AND SAVE US WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED WITH THY MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD, FOR THE DAY IS FAR SPENT AND THE NIGHT APPROACHES; BID US WORK WHILE THERE IS STILL TIME;


GRANT US ALL THAT VICTORY OVER SELF WHICH WILL MAKE US SO COMPLETELY THINE, THAT HERE AFTER WE MAY RECEIVE FROM THEE THE CROWN OF ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH IS TO SEE THEE, TO LOVE THEE, TO POSSES THEE, OUR ONLY GOOD!


AMEN.

A PRAYER FOR DIVINE MERCY
O Greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy - to Your compassion,O God;and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and through, and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You, we implore You, anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our life and at death's hour.
Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation's enemies, that we may with confidence, as Your children, await Your final coming - that day known to You alone. And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness, for Jesus is our Hope;
Through His merciful Heart as through an open gate we pass through to heaven. (From Diary of Sr. Faustina-Note Book V, p.143)
Jesus I Trust in Thee ! PRAYER FOR DIVINE MERCY
Optional Opening Prayer for Divine Mercy Chaplet:) You expired Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls,and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.

'Eternal Father,
I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those 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.'

(Optional Closing prayer for Divine Mercy:) Eternal God, in whom Mercy is endless, and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to your Holy Will, which is love and Mercy itself. AMEN!
The Little Chaplet of the Holy Face
The purpose of the Crown or Chaplet of the Holy Face is to honor the Five Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and to ask of God the triumph of His holy Church.
This chaplet is composed of a cross and thirty-nine beads; of these six are large beads and thirty-three small ones; to this chaplet is attached a medal of the Holy Face.
On the Cross, which reminds us of the mystery of our redemption, we begin the chaplet by saying the words: "Incline unto my aid, O God; O Lord make haste to help me. Glory be."
The thirty-three small beads represent the thirty-three years of the mortal life of our Divine Lord. The first thrity beads recall to us the thirty years of His hidden life, and are divided into five parts of six beads each, in honor of the senses of touch, hearing, sight, smell, and taste of Jesus, and, as they were situated princippaly in His holy face, to render reparative homage for all the sufferings which our Lord has endured in His Face through each of these senses.
Each six beads are preceded by a a large bead, followed by a Glory be to recall the sense we wish to honor. The three other beads mark the three years of the public life of Our Lord, and have for their intention to honor all the wounds of His adorable Face; there are also preceded by a large bead, to be followed by a Glory be for the same intention.
On each large bead is said: "My Jesus Mercy." On the small beads is said: "Arise, O Lord! and let Thy enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Thee fly before Thy Face."
The Glory be is recited seven times in honor of the seven last words of Jesus upon the cross, and the Seven Dolours of the Immaculate Virgin.
The chaplet is concluded by saying on the medal: "God, our Protector, look down upon us and cast Thine eyes upon the Face of Thy Christ."
This chaplet was composed by Sister Saint-Pierre, a Carmelite of Tours. Saint Athanasius relates that the devils, on being asked what verse in the whole Scripture they feared the most, replied: "That with which the sixty-seventh Psalm commences: 'Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered let them that hate Him flee from before His face.'" They added that this always compelled them to take flight.
The 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. (3x) Jesus, King of Mercy, we trust in You!
The hour is coming, and is here now, where true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!" (Rev. 5:12).
Seven Sorrows of Mary
1. The prophecy of Simeon.
2. The flight into Egypt.
3. The loss of the Child Jesus in the temple.
4. The meeting of Jesus and Mary on the Way of the Cross.
5. The Crucifixion.
6. The taking down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross.
7. The burial of Jesus

The Blessed Virgin Mary grants seven graces to the souls who honor her daily by saying seven Hail Mary's and meditating on her tears and dolors. The devotion was passed on by Saint Bridget.

2. They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.
3. I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.
4. I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.
5. I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect the

The Divine Mercy Novena
Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday.
In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:

First Day
Today bring Me all mankind, especially all sinners. Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins, but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.
Second Day
Today Bring Me the Souls of Priests and Religious. Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in us, that we may perform worthy works of mercy, and that all who see us may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company [of chosen souls] in Your vineyard - upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation, and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.
Third Day
Today Bring Me All Devout and Faithful Souls. Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in the great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely. Eternal Father, turn Your Merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
Fourth Day
Today Bring Me Those Who Do Not Believe In Me and Those Who Do Not Know Me Most Compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who as yet do not believe in You or do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in Your Son, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.
Fifth Day
Today Bring to Me the Souls of the Separated Brethren Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of our separated brethren. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of our separated brethren, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your Own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen. Sixth Day

Today Bring Me The Meek and Humble Souls and the Souls of Little Children Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy, and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet- smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek and humble souls, and upon the souls of little children, who are enfolded in the abode of the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight you take in them: bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen. Seventh Day

Today Bring Me The Souls Who Especially Venerate and Glorify My Mercy
Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your Mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident in Your Mercy. These souls are united to Jesus and carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy and their spirit, overflowing with joy, sings a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O God: Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them, "I Myself will defend as My own glory, during their lifetime, and especially at the hour of their death, those souls who will venerate My fathomless mercy." Eighth Day

Today Bring Me The Souls Who Are In the Prison Of Purgatory Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of purifying fire, that in that place, too, the power of Your mercy may be praised. Eternal Father, turn Your most merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded, manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way than through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.


Ninth Day

Today Bring Me The Souls Who Have Become Lukewarm


Most Compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart.


In this fire of Your pure love let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame.


O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love; and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus.


Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three- hour agony on the Cross: let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen


Meditating with Our Lady


On the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary by Terri Smith (Fair use for those of the African Diaspora 17 U.S.C.) On the occasion of the 21st Anniversary of Our Lady�s apparitions in Medjugorje, The MIR Group held a very special Mass for Peace at St. Clement of Rome Church. Terri Smith and her family graciously agreed to lead the Rosary before the Mass. The Meditations which follow were written by Terri and were so well received that everyone wanted a copy. So, I decided to run them in this issue of The Medjugorje Star. It is my great hope that, as we continue to meditate on Our Lady�s Message of Medjugorje, that we will more and more enthusiastically live her call to peace.


The First Sorrowful Mystery,


Our Lord�s Agony in the Garden


Agony � an intense suffering of mind or body, a violent striving or effort. Our Lord�s words then, as He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane, must have been similar to the words of Our Lady in her first messages at Medjugorje. �I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life and to enjoy this fullness and to attain peace, you must return to God. Be converted while there is still time.


The only words I wish to say are reconciliation, conversion, prayer and fasting. �I ask you not to allow my heart to cry with tears of blood because of the souls who are being lost in sin.�


The Second Sorrowful Mystery, The Scourging at the Pillar As Our Lord was beaten and flogged, hung naked in humiliation, we offer our own sufferings, big and small and we reflect on the message of Our Lady to us �My dear children, abandon yourselves to me, so that I can lead you totally.


When you are in difficulty, and need anything. Come to me! Consecrate yourselves to the Immaculate Heart. Abandon yourselves completely and I will protect you. In prayer you will come to know the greatest joy and the way out of every situation that has no way out.�


The Third Sorrowful Mystery,


The Crowning with Thorns As the divine wisdom of Our Lord was being mocked and ridiculed, we meditate on the times in our lives when we have been mocked, teased and treated as inferior because of our outward love of Jesus and Our Lady.


As Our Lady has said �Dear children, my dear children, do not allow Satan to reign in your hearts. Do not be an image of satan, but be my image. God gave everyone free will, and it is up to you to decide. Satan is working even more violently to take joy from each of you.


Through prayer you will totally disarm him and insure your happiness. I desire you to be reflections of Jesus, who enlightens in an unfaithful world, which is walking in darkness. Witness to the light! You are not called to darkness, my dear children, you are called to light! So, live the light in your lives.�


The Fourth Sorrowful Mystery, The Carrying of the Cross As Our Lord struggled under the weight of the cross, so do we as humans struggle with our crosses. We unite our struggles to that of Our Lord�s as we meditate upon Our Lady�s messages � �You have a great and heavy cross, but do not be afraid to carry it.


Through the cross, God is glorified in every man. Russia will come to glorify God. The West has advanced civilization, but they have lost God. Monthly confession would cure the Western Church. My dear children, the world has forgotten the value of prayer and fasting. With prayer and fasting wars could be stopped and natural laws suspended.�


The Fifth Sorrowful Mystery, Jesus Dies on the Cross As Jesus endures His final act of surrender to God on the cross, may we learn to surrender to His most Holy will by meditating on these words from Our Lady. �Promise my dear children, that you will not offend Jesus and that you will not insult Him or the cross.


My beloved Son, please forgive these numerous sins with which humanity offends you. Oh, my dear children on earth, tell the world not to wait any longer! It needs to convert! When God comes He will not be joking!


Convert before it is too late, while there is still time. Do not wait for the sign! The sign will come too late for those who do not believe. Pray the rosary every evening. Read the Bible everyday in your homes.


Meditate especially on the sixth chapter of St. Matthew, verses 24 � 34. They speak of total abandonment to God. I love you my dear, dear children with a special love and I want to bring you to heaven with God.


I want you to comprehend that this life is short in comparison with that in heaven. I am grateful to Our Lord for all He has given me especially for this gift of being with you.


These are the days in which the Father is giving special graces to all, who open their hearts. I am your loving mother and if you knew how much I love each one of you, you would weep for joy.�
