Header-Fr Martin blasphemes the Holy Rosary

By Luiz Sérgio Solimeo


The rosary is a set of prayers addressed to Our Lady in order to, through her intercession, receive graces to be good and defend the Faith and Christian civilization.

 

The Rosary, a Devotion Highly Recommended by Saints and Popes

The rosary is one of the devotions most recommended by saints and popes. Thus, Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903), in his Encyclical Supremi Apostolatus Officio of 1883, extolled this devotion as the great weapon in defense of the Church:

“Now that the anniversary, therefore, of manifold and exceedingly great favors obtained by a Christian people through the devotion of the Rosary is at hand, We desire that that same devotion should be offered by the whole Catholic world with the greatest earnestness to the Blessed Virgin, that by her intercession her Divine Son may be appeased and softened in the evils which afflict us.…

“This devotion, so great and so confident, to the august Queen of Heaven, has never shone forth with such brilliancy as when the militant Church of God has seemed to be endangered by the violence of heresy spread abroad, or by an intolerable moral corruption, or by the attacks of powerful enemies. Ancient and modern history and the more sacred annals of the Church bear witness to public and private supplications addressed to the Mother of God, to the help she has granted in return, and to the peace and tranquility which she had obtained from God.” 1

The pontiff went on to recall some victories obtained through the rosary: against the Albigensian heresy in southern France; against the Muslim infidels in the naval battle of Lepanto in 1571; and again at Temeswar, in Pannonia, and at Corfu.

 

Our Lady at Fatima: “Pray the Rosary Every Day”

Nowadays when the Muslim danger is reborn, and in which heresy and “an intolerable moral corruption” assaults the Church, especially with homosexual scandals by members of the clergy and hierarchy, the rosary has become more necessary than ever.

That is why, at Fatima, the Blessed Mother recommended that the three seers “pray the rosary every day.”And she presented herself as the Lady of the Rosary.

 

A Blasphemous Mockery of the Holy Rosary

Accordingly, to mock the holy rosary by asking God to bless and favor the social acceptance of unnatural public sin—instead of beseeching Him for graces to help practice purity and the other virtues—is blasphemy against this heavenly devotion, and thus against the Blessed Mother, to whom it is addressed.

Fr. James Martin, S.J. is known for his ongoing efforts favoring the homosexual movement. On December 3, he posted this blasphemous parody of the rosary on his Facebook page:

“Dear friends: A few months ago, I received an unusual gift from out of the blue: a Rosary that invited one to pray for a variety of people who suffer--unborn children, victims of gun violence, refugees and migrants, victims of racism, LGBT people, and so on: one group for each "decade." I've seen many Rosaries like this, but this to me was the most beautiful. … (Needless to say, you can also use it as a traditional Rosary, which I do, with the traditional mysteries.) … It was a beautiful gift that I've kept--and used. And a few weeks ago, at the Ignatian Family Teach-In, in Washington, DC, I met the wonderful people who were behind this gift, "Contemplative Rebellion," and was able to thank them. … The Rosary of Modern Sorrows is available here (with a further description of the intentions related to each decade): https://contemplativerebellion.com/…/rosary-of-modern-sorrow” (emphasis added). 2

By recommending to others to pray a blasphemous “Rosary,” the “Rainbow Jesuit” participates in this blasphemy against the Virgin Mary.

 

Full Acceptance of LGBTQ Couples

Indeed, here is the prayer corresponding to the fifth “mystery” of this “Rosary” made with rainbow-colored beads:

“We Pray for a welcoming of LGBTQ people by all churches, temples, mosques and synagogues. We Pray for LGBTQ couples, their children, and extended families. We Pray that they may be supported and loved, with full acceptance as people truly created in the image of God, a creation that God saw as “good”, and who deserve to live every aspect of life to the fullest.” (emphasis added) 3

Please note how the prayer implies that “LGBTQ couples,” as such, were “truly created in the image of God” and that this was “a creation that God saw as ‘good.’”

However, two people of the same sex that live as a couple are engaged in the practice of the homosexual sin. To say that God created them like this and that their unnatural behavior is “good” and comes from God is nonsense.

To suppose that God could have created a different type of human being that was not obliged to fulfill the precepts of the Ten Commandments and the natural law would be to install contradiction in Him. However, a contradictory God is absurd since He is the Supreme Wisdom.

The bad tendencies afflicting man are consequences of Original Sin. They are not of God’s creation. But the grace of God always gives sufficient strength for man to resist these bad tendencies and, in so doing, to practice the virtues. 4

There is only one human nature, and it has two sexes, male and female, that complement each other: “And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them” (Gen. 1:27).

Let us heed the request of Our Lady of Fatima by praying the rosary daily. And let us also pray it in reparation for the blasphemy boosted by this unfaithful Jesuit.

April 19

 

A dying man asked a dying man for eternal life. 
A man without possessions asked a poor man for a Kingdom. 
A thief at the door of death asked to die like a thief and steal Paradise. 
 
One would have thought a saint would have been the first soul 
purchased over the counter of Calvary by the red coins of Redemption. 
 

But in the Divine plan it was a thief 
who was the escort of the King of kings 
into Paradise.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

St. Alphege of Canterbury

As a youth, Alphege became a monk in the monastery of Deerhurst in Gloucestershire, England, afterwards an anchorite and later an abbot in a monastery in Bath. At thirty, at the insistence of St. Dunstan and to his great consternation, he was elected Bishop of Winchester. As bishop, he maintained the same austerity of life as when a monk. During his episcopate he was so generous toward the poor that there were no beggars left in the diocese of Winchester.

Alphege served twenty-two years as bishop of this see and was then translated to the see of Canterbury at the death of Archbishop Aelfric.

During this period, England suffered from the ravages of the Danes who joined forces with the rebel Earl Edric, marched on Kent and laid siege to Canterbury. When the city was betrayed, there was a terrible massacre, men and women, old and young, dying by the sword.

The Archbishop hastened to the defense of his people, and pressing through the crowd begged the Danes to cease the carnage. He was immediately seized, roughly handled, and imprisoned.

A mysterious and deadly plague broke out among the Danes, and, despite the fact that the holy prelate had healed many of their own with his prayers and by giving them blessed bread, the Danes demanded an exorbitant ransom for his release. As the Archbishop protested that the country was too poor to pay such a price, he was brutally assassinated.

St. Alphege was the first Archbishop of Canterbury to die a violent death. In 1023, the martyr's body was translated with great ceremony to Canterbury accompanied by the Danish King Canute. Although he did not die directly in defense of the Faith, St. Alphege is considered a martyr of justice.

The Robber Who Stole Heaven

In the mountainous region of Trent in Germany, there lived a notorious robber who made his living by bringing misfortune on others. His occupation being what it was, he would only increase his property by decreasing that of his victims.

One day, he was admonished by a local religious to change his course of life and thereby insure his eternal salvation. The only answer the robber gave was that for him there was no remedy.

"Do not say so," said the religious, "do what I tell you. Fast on each Saturday in honor of the Virgin Mary, and on that day of the week do no harm to anyone. She will obtain for you the grace of not dying in God’s displeasure.”

The robber thought to himself, “This is a small price to pay to insure my salvation; I will do as this holy man has prescribed.” He then obediently followed the religious’ advice, and made a vow to continue to do so. That he might not break it, from that time on he traveled unarmed on Saturdays.

Many years later, our robber was apprehended on a given Saturday by the officers of justice, and that he might not break his oath, he allowed himself to be taken without resistance. The judge, seeing that he was now a gray-haired old man, wished to pardon him.

Then the truly miraculous occurred. Rather than jump for joy thanking the judge for his leniency, the old robber, said that he wished to die in punishment of his sins. He then made a public confession of all the sins of his life in that same judgment hall, weeping so bitterly that all present wept with him.

He was beheaded, a death reserved for the nobility, rather than hanged. Then his body was buried with little ceremony, in a grave dug nearby.
Very soon afterwards, the mother of God came down from Heaven with four holy virgins by her side. They took the robber’s dead body from that place, wrapped it in a rich cloth embroidered with gold, and bore it themselves to the gate of the city.

There the Blessed Virgin said to the guards: "Tell the bishop from me, to give an honorable burial, in such a church to this dead person, for he was my faithful servant." And thus it was done.

All the people in the village thronged to the spot where they found the corpse with the rich pall, and the bier on which it was placed. And from that moment on, says Caesarius of Heisterbach, all persons in that region began to fast on Saturdays in honor of she who was so kind to even a notorious robber.
