September 24th - Feast of Our Lady of Mercy/Ransom The story of Our Lady of Mercy with St. Peter Nolasco, born in Languedoc c.1189. At the age of 25 he took a vow of chastity and made over his vast estates to the Church. After making a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Montserrat, he went to Barcelona where he began to practice various works of charity. He conceived the idea of establishing an Order for the redemption of captives seized by the Moors on the seas and in Spain itself; they were being cruelly tormented in their African prisons to make them deny their faith. He spoke of it to the king of Aragon, James I, who knew him well and already respected him as a saint; for the king had already asked for his prayers when he sent out his armies to combat the Moors, and he attributed his victories to those prayers. In effect all the Christians of Europe, and above all of Spain, were praying intensely to obtain from God the remedy for the great evil that had befallen them. The divine Will was soon manifested. On one night — August 1, 1218 — the Blessed Virgin appeared to St. Peter, to his confessor, Raymund of Penafort, and to the king, and through these three servants of God established a work of the most perfect charity, the redemption of captives. On that night, while the Church was celebrating the feast of St. Peter in Chains, the Virgin Mary appeared first to St. Peter, saying that she indeed desired the establishment of a religious Order, later known as the Mercedarians, bearing the name of her mercy. Its members would undertake to deliver Christian captives and offer themselves, if necessary, as a ransom pledge...

NOVENA TO ST PIO OF PIETRELCINA DAY 9: Preface: Oh most Holy God, we humbly prostrate ourselves before Thy Infinite Majesty, and we adore Thee and dedicate to Thy glory the devout prayers which we now present to Thee, as an act of devotion to your servant, St Padre Pio, whose intercession we are now imploring. Oh most loving Saint Padre Pio, you were very devout in the service of God, always encouraging others to obey God's laws and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Obtain for us, we beg you, not only the grace that we are asking, if it would be God’s will (mention request) but most importantly obtain for us the conversion and salvation of our souls, so that someday we may be united with Jesus, Mary and you for all eternity. Finally, help us to accept God's will in all things, even if it runs contrary to our own likes or desires. Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be... May God hear and answer our prayer according to His holy will and for His greater glory. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. -St Padre Pio, pray for us! ______________________________________________ #stpioofpietrelcina #stpadrepio #padrepio #padrepionovena #catholicsaints #Catholic #Catholicchurch #traditionalcatholic #popefrancis #Popebenedictxvi #popeemeritusbenedictxvi #holymass #sacredheart #pope #Christian #God #virginmary #ourlady #JesusChrist #ourlordandsaviour #holytrinity #stjohnpaulthegreat #stjohnpaulii #popestjohnpaulii #stpiusx #popepaulvi #stigmata #miracles #saintsmiracles

We must be always careful who we keep in our company. Sometimes we can allow ourselves to have bad company whom can lead us away from God. It's important that we surround ourselves with good Catholics when possible. Although it's not always bad to have people of different faiths or atheists as good friends we must be careful that we don't allow ourselves to start doubting the one true Catholic faith in the process. Often times it happens that through being friends with lost souls that we can can help influence them and they often times convert. But at the same time we must pick our friends wisely. Some non-believers are more open than others to conversion. If we know someone who is a staunch atheist or staunch anti-Catholic they should be avoided. We must pray for them because we can't endanger our souls either. At the end of the day someone will only convert if they have an open heart. So we must always pray for those who have closed hearts. We must always try convert non-Catholics but do it without endangering our own souls. _____________________________________________ #stthomasaquinas #summatheologica #Catholic #Catholicchurch #traditionalcatholic #popefrancis #Popebenedictxvi #popeemeritusbenedictxvi #stjohnpaulthegreat #stjohnpaulii #stpopejohnpaulii #Christian #God #virginmary #ourlady #JesusChrist #ourlordandsaviour #holytrinity #catholicsaints #deusvult #bible #holybible #romancatholic
