Started a second blog to defend my dear country from the evils that threaten her true identity as “One nation under God”. Enjoy!

Spiritual Army for the Soul of America

God bless America!

For a while now, especially since the Supreme Court voted to approve “gay marriage”, people have been falling into two traps. Some people blindly follow the majority’s views and believe the lie that the liberal ideals now being circulated and corrupting our nation are part of America’s identity and that to not follow them makes you a “hater”, “bigot”, and “un-American”. Others despair of our country and begin to turn against her in their hearts (with some even going so far as to say they hate her, or burn the flag, or call her evil because of the evil things that have been happening in her lately), also thinking of the liberal ideals being spread as part of America’s identity and rightly believing those ideals to be wrong and destructive. If we go back past the last seventy years or so and consider America and her history as a whole…

Happy Assumption of Our Lady!

“Mary has the authority over the angels and the blessed in heaven. As a reward for her great humility, God gave her the power and mission of assigning to saints the thrones made vacant by the apostate angels who fell away through pride. Such is the will of the almighty God who exalts the humble, that the powers of heaven, earth and hell, willingly or unwillingly, must obey the commands of the humble Virgin Mary. For God has made her queen of heaven and earth, leader of his armies, keeper of his treasure, dispenser of his graces, mediatrix on behalf of men, destroyer of his enemies, and faithful associate in his great works and triumphs.” –Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, #28

CONSECRATION OF THE LAST TWO HOURS OF YOUR LIFE TO OUR LADY by Rev. Fr. Ildefonso M. Izaguirre, O. P.

Prostrated at thy feet, and humiliated by my sins, but full of confidence in thee, O Mary! I beg thee to accept the petition my heart is about to make. It is for my last moments. Dear Mother I wish to request thy protection and maternal love so that in the decisive instant that thou wilt do all thy love can suggest in my behalf. To thee, O Mother of my soul, I consecrate THE LAST TWO HOURS of my life. Come to my side to receive my last breath and when death has cut the thread of my days, tell Jesus, presenting to Him my soul, “I LOVE IT”. That word alone will be enough to procure for me the benediction of my God and the happiness of seeing thee for all eternity. I put my trust in thee, my Mother and hope it will not be in vain. O Mary! Pray for thy child and lead him to Jesus! Amen.

“Clare was a beautiful Italian noblewoman who became the Foundress of an order of nuns now called ‘Poor Clares.’ When she heard St. Francis of Assisi preach, her heart burned with a great desire to imitate Francis and to live a poor humble life for Jesus. So one evening, she ran away from home, and in a little chapel outside Assisi, gave herself to God. St. Francis cut off her hair and gave her a rough brown habit to wear, tied with a plain cord around her waist. Her parents tried in every way to make her return home, but Clare would not. Soon her sister, St. Agnes joined her, as well as other young women who wanted to be brides of Jesus, and live without any money. St. Clare and her sisters wore no shoes, ate no meat, lived in a poor house, and kept silent most of the time. Yet they were very happy, because Our Lord was close to them all the time. Once, He saved them from a great danger in answer to St. Clare’s prayer. An army of rough soldiers came to attack Assisi and they planned to raid the convent first. Although very sick, St. Clare had herself carried to the wall and right there, where the enemies could see it, she had the Blessed Sacrament placed. Then on her knees, she begged God to save the Sisters. ‘O Lord, protect these Sisters whom I cannot protect now,’ she prayed. A voice seemed to answer: ‘I will keep them always in My care.’ At the same time a sudden fright struck the attackers and they fled as fast as they could. St. Clare was sick and suffered great pains for many years, but she said that no pain could trouble her. So great was her joy in serving the Lord that she once exclaimed: ‘They say that we are too poor, but can a heart which possesses the infinite God be truly called poor?’ We should remember this miracle of the Blessed Sacrament when in Church. Then we will pray with great Faith to Jesus in the Holy Eucharist: ‘Save me, O Lord, from every evil – of soul and body.’ Her feast day is August 11.” (http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=215)
