Feast Of St. Joaquina De Vedruna De Mas – May 22

Feast Of St. Joaquina De Vedruna De Mas – May 22

St. Joaquina De Vedruna De Mas

MAY 22 – ST. JOAQUINA DE VEDRUNA DE MAS (1783-1854).

Joaquina was born into a noble family on April 16, 1783 in Barcelona Spain. When she was 12, she expressed a desire to become a Carmelite nun. However, at the age of 16, she married, Theodore de Mas in 1799 and bore him eight or nine children. Both Joaquina and Theodore became devout secular Franciscans. Theodore died in 1816 at the age of forty-two years old. For seven years, Joaquina devoted her time to her children, prayer, and to waiting on the sick in the local hospital. During this time, she wore the Franciscan tertiary habit and lived a life of mortification and poverty.

Once most of her children were grown and taking care of the smallest ones, Joaquina spoke to Fr. Stephen of Olot about her desire for a religious life. He told her she was destined to belong to a new congregation devoted to teaching the young and nursing the sick. Six years later, she was clothed with the religious habit by the bishop of Vich, Mgr Paul Corcuera who put the new congregation under the invocation of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Fr. Stephen drew up the rule and the community started with six members. The new order spread throughout Catalonia.

Several times when at prayer in the chapel the sisters saw her lifted from the floor in ecstasy, her head ringed with light. Beginning in 1850 she began to suffer a slowly progressing paralysis which she suffered with for four years. For the last few months of her life she could not move or speak. She succumbed to an attack of cholera on August 28, 1854. Descendants of Joaquina and twenty-five Carmelites of Charity were among the victims of secularist terrorism in Spain in 1936. She was beatified on May 19, 1940 and was canonized on April 12, 1959 by Pope John XXIII. She is the patron saint of abuse victims, death of children, exiles, widows.

Prayer For Protection Against Demons By St. Bosco


PRAYER FOR PROTECTION AGAINST DEMONS.

(Saint John Bosco, C. 1880).
O Mary, powerful Virgin,

Thou art the mighty and glorious Protector of the Church.

Thou art the Marvelous Help of Christians.

Thou art Terrible as an Army set in Battle Array.

Thou alone has destroyed every heresy in the entire Church.

In the midst of my anguish, my struggles and my distress,

Defend me from the power of the enemy,

And at the hour of my death,

Receive my soul into Paradise.

Amen.

PLEADING THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

The Apocalypse Of Saint John (Revelation) Chapter 12:11 >And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death”.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my spouse and children.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my family, home and property.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my Church and on all Church property.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my mind.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on every thought in my mind.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my body.

I plead the Blood of Jesus on every evil spirit attacking my mind and body.

Saint Michael Prayer.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of 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 Hosts, by the power of God, thrust into Hell, Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

THE BRIEF OF ST ANTHONY.

A woman who was troubled by spiritual forces stopped at a chapel to pray before a statue of St. Anthony. She fell asleep, and saw him whether in a dream or vision. Upon waking, she found a letter (brief) with words to put evil forces to flight.

The letter (brief) reads: 

Latin:

Ecce crucem domini, fugite, partes adversae, vicit leo de tribu juda, radix david. Alleluia.

English:

Behold the cross of the Lord! Begone hostile enemies! The lion of Judah, the offspring of David has triumphed! Alleluia!

Saint Teresa of Avila on the Power of Holy Water.

I was once in an oratory, when Satan, in an abominable shape, appeared on my left hand. I looked at his mouth in particular, because he spoke, and it was horrible. A huge flame seemed to issue out of his body, perfectly bright, without any shadow. He spoke in a fearful way, and said to me that, though I had escaped out of his hands, he would yet lay hold of me again. I was in great terror, made the sign of the cross as well as I could, and then the form vanished–but it reappeared instantly. This occurred twice. I did not know what to do; there was some holy water at hand; I took some, and threw it in the direction of the figure, and then Satan never returned. I know by frequent experience that there is nothing which puts the devils to flight like holy water. They run away before the sign of the cross also, but they return immediately: great, then, must be the power of holy water.

The Apocalyptic Prophesy Of St. Nilus Who Lived Around 400 AD. 

The Apocalyptic Prophesy Of St. Nilus Who Lived Around 400 AD. 

The Apocalyptic Prophecy of St. Nilus, who lived around 400 AD:

Saint Nilus the Elder, of Sinai (also known as NeilosNilus of SinaiNilus of Ancyra; died November 12, 430), was one of the many disciples and stalwart defenders of St. John ChrysostomWe know him first as a layman, married, with two sons. 

The Prophecy of St. Nilus is an apocryphal work of uncertain origin (thus often referred to as the Prophecy of Pseudo-Nilus) predicting the apocalypse to occur in the 19th or 20th century (depending on the version of the text).

Below is a text of his apocalyptic prophecy:👇

“After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, people’s minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable.

People’s appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left. 

At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and of the Church will change. People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society.

“At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Spirit, which they received in Holy Baptism and equally of remorse.

“The Churches of God will be deprived of God-fearing and pious pastors, and woe to the Christians remaining in the world at that time; they will completely lose their faith because they will lack the opportunity of seeing the light of knowledge from anyone at all. Then they will separate themselves out of the world in holy refuges in search of lightening their spiritual sufferings, but everywhere they will meet obstacles and constraints. And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be Lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. 

He will also give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way by which one man can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the earth to the other. At that time, men will also fly through the air like birds and descend to the bottom of the sea like fish. And when they have achieved all this, these unhappy people will spend their lives in comfort without knowing, poor souls, that it is deceit of the Antichrist. And, the impious one! he will so complete science with vanity that it will go off the right path and lead people to lose faith in the existence of God in three hypostases.

“Then the All-good God will see the downfall of the human race and will shorten the days for the sake of those few who are being saved, because the enemy wants to lead even the chosen into temptation, if that is possible… then the sword of chastisement will suddenly appear and kill the perverter and his servants.”

Prophesy: The Chastisement Will Begin With France. 

Prophesy: The Chastisement Will Begin With France. 


​PROPHESY: “The chastisements will begin with Paris.”

“In Rome, the storm will be the blackest. The storm of Rome is even worse than the storm in France. All the wrath of the ungodly is in Rome. All the anger of the wicked is focused on the Holy See. (But), The chastisements will begin with Paris”

– (Marie Julie Jahenny Catholic Mystic Stigmatic).

“Tell them, Father, that many times the Most Holy Virgin told my cousins Francisco and Jacinta, as well as myself, that many nations will disappear from the face of the earth. She said that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation.

– (Sister Lucy of Fatima to Father Fuentes 1957).

The Madonna speaks: “The hour of the justice of God is close, and will be terrible!” “Tremendous scourges are impending over the world, and various nations are struck by epidemics, famines, great earthquakes, terrific hurricanes, with overflowing rivers and seas, which bring ruin and death.” “If the people do not recognize in these scourges (of nature) the warnings of Divine Mercy, and do not return to God with truly Christian living, ANOTHER TERRIBLE WAR WILL COME FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST. RUSSIA WITH HER SECRET ARMIES WILL BATTLE AMERICA; WILL OVERRUN EUROPE. The river Rhine will be overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy, also, will be harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer terribly.”

– (Prophecy of Blessed Elena Aiello Stigmatic).
