Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost

 O Lord Jesus Christ, Who before ascending into Heaven didst promise
to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thine Apos-
tles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Ghost to me, that He
may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love. Grant me 
the spirit of Wisdom, that I may despise the perishable things of this
world and aspire only after the things that are eternal; the spirit of
Undestanding, to enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth;

sing God and gaining heaven; the spirit of Fortitude, that I may bear
my cross with Thee and that I may overcome with courage all obstacles
that oppose my salvation; the spirit of Knowledge, that I may know God
and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints; the
spirit of Piety, that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable;
the spirit of Fear, that I may be filled with a loving reverence to-
wards God and may dread in any way to displease Him. Mark me, Dear
Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples, and animate me in all 
things with Thy Spirit. Amen. 

Holy Ghost, God of Love, I adore Thee really and truly in my soul. Oh,
 give me Thy holy love.

 blessed peace, which surpasses all understanding.

 Purgatory. Amem.

A Covenant with God

 O my God, all my desire is before Thee, but, inasmuch as the necess-
ities of life prevent the constant application of my mind to Thy pra-
ise, I make with Thee this covenant, desiring that it may remain in
force throughout my life.
 With every beating of my heart; at every temptation; every time that 
I shall pass before a Cross or a church; whenever I meet anyone; ever-
ytime I breathe, or move, or speak, or act, or work, or suffer, or
pray, or eat, or drink, or rest, or recreate, I desire and intend to
offer Thee, as many times as there are seconds in the day, grains of
sand on the earth, and particles in the air, all the merits of OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST, His fasting and penances, His Sacred Passion and
Most Precious Blood, His humiliations and death; all the Masses that
have been or ever will be celebrated; all the merits of the BLESSED
VIRGIN MARY and those of all the Saints; the labors of all Apostles,
the blood of martyrs, the purity of Virgins, the austerities of Peni-
tents, the prayers of our Holy Mother the Church; in a word, all the
meritorious works that have been, or ever will be performed until the
end of time.
 This offering I make to Thee, O my God, in order to obtain the pardon
of all my sins; those of my relatives, friends, and enemies; those of
all infidels, heretics, Jews, and all bad Christians; for the triumph
of Thy Holy Church, the accomplishment of Thy Holy Will upon earth as
in Heaven; the acquisition of all virtues, especially ___; the grace 
of a happy death; and the deliverance of all souls in Purgatory, for
whom I desire to gain all possible indulgences.
 By this offering, I desire to thank Thee for all the natural and
supernatural benefits, known and unknown graces that have been ,
or that shall be granted to myself, to my relations and friends, and to
all mankind, even until the end of time. In a word, I desire to make of
the remainder of my life one long act of love, hoping in this manner
to offer some reparation for the time I have lost in Thy service, and to 
render to ThyInfinite Majesty all the glory of which Thou hast been

Only Priests Have Power To Consecrate And Administer The Eucharist 
It must be taught, then, that to priests alone has been given power 
to consecrate and administer to the faithful, the Holy Eucharist.  
That this has been the unvarying practice of the Church, that the 
faithful should receive the Sacrament from the priests, and that the 
officiating priests should communicate themselves, has been explained 
by the holy Council of Trent, which has also shown that this 
practice, as having proceeded from Apostolic tradition, is to be 
religiously retained, particularly as Christ the Lord has left us an 
illustrious example thereof, having consecrated His own most sacred 
body, and given it to the Apostles with His own hands.

M: The Church has made no declaration one way or the other on it's validity or falsity. 
Hello Martin, and all. The bishop made his official statement. Read 
the following from Catholic World Report: 

World Watch - Bosnia (November 2001 issue) 

Medjugorje as a source of division 
Prelate complains of “disobedient” Franciscans 
Cardinal Vinko Puljic of Sarajevo, speaking at the Synod of Bishops in Rome, has complained that the reported Marian apparitions of Medjugorje are a source of division in the Church. 

Cardinal Puljic spoke on the general theme of how bishops should be involved in “overcoming the divisions existing in the Church and in today’s world.” He argued: “Europe can no longer be divided into Eastern and Western Europe. The world cannot remain divided between North and South.” Then, turning his attention to his own land of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the cardinal said that the unity of the Church is threatened by the disobedience of the Franciscan monks serving at Medjurgorje, who “impose their own points of view” with the aid of “pseudo-charisms.” 

Although the local bishop has never officially rendered a verdict on the authenticity of the reported Marian apparitions at Medjugorje, the hierarchy has generally shown signs of skepticism, and cautioned against excessive enthusiasm. This stance has frequently produced conflicts with the Franciscan pastors who have energetically promoted visits and devotion to the Medjugorje site. 

And now this from the January 2002 Letters section: 

Error on Medjugorje 

I was very disappointed to read in the last paragraph of the November, 2001, “World Watch” article on Bosnia-Herzegovina, the statement that “the local bishop has never officially rendered a verdict on the authenticity of the reported Marian apparitions in Medjugorje.” 

This statement is incorrect. Bishop Ratko Peric, the individual designated to rule on possible supernatural events in his diocese, is ordinary of the diocese that includes Medjugorje. He has repeatedly attempted to clarify the nature of the “apparitions” in Medjugorje. He has, however, little support even in the Vatican because of the hundreds of millions of dollars involved in the Medjugorje travel and hospitality industry and because of political intrigues. 

I would like to quote a statement from Bishop Peric’s Confirmation homily, which he gave at St. James Church in Medjugorje on July 1, 2000: 

The official statements of the Church, starting from the local bishop up to the bishop’s conference, have not in this case (regarding the apparitions) recognized a single “apparition” as authentic. The Church clearly declared that it is impossible to affirm that these events involve supernatural apparitions. For this reason I wrote decisively and clearly on February 14, 1998 to the local pastor: “Therefore, let no official church premises belonging to the parish be used for these so-called, presumed and imagined ‘apparitions,’ which have never been recognized nor accepted by the Catholic Church.” The parish priest willingly obeyed. Therefore I hereby declare with no doubt in my mind, as the local ordinary and bishop, that not a single so-called “apparition” nor so-called “message” convinces me that these events involve supernatural appearances. 

Surely Cardinal Vinko Puljic, who made a statement in the article that Medjugorje is a source of division in the Church, is in agreement with Bishop Peric. I can’t help but wonder how a statement that ignores the facts about the local ordinary’s judgment on Medugorje could have crept into this article. 

—Laurette Elsberry of Sacramento, California 

Your criticism is justified. Bishop Peric’s judgment was clear and decisive. The local ordinary has indeed rendered his verdict, and the sentence that you cite was inaccurate. We regret the error. 

—The Editor 

The local bishop has spoken. Rome has not contrasicted him. 

M: Several religious orders, like the Franciscans or the Jesuits, are not subject to local ecclesiastical authority. 

Unless the bishop has no authority at all, he can say who does or 
does not operate in his diocese. Period. By the logic you claim, 
anybody can set up shop in a diocese any where and the bishop has no 
say on anything. If what you say is right, then why does the Priestly 
Fraternity of St. Peter need permission to go into and operate in a 
diocese? By your logic, they should be able to go anywhere, set up 
shop, and no bishop can touch them. Oh, if that were only the case... 

M: While this one is more difficult to follow, the advocates argue that Our Lady continuously speaks about God's love for ALL of mankind, Muslims, Jews, Christians, and even the unbelievers. But, she also says that all men are equal, but all religions are not. 

I don't see what is so hard to follow. Even the Catechism of the Catholic Church declares indifferentism to be a sin. 

M: But, she also says that all men are equal, but all religions are not. 

Sorry, Martin. You have been badly misinformed. 

Svetozar Krljevic O.F.M., The Apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje, Franciscan Herald Press, 1984) 

Page 95:'God presides over all religions as a king controls his 
subjects, through his priests and ministers. Mary emphasized, how- 
ever, that Jesus Christ is the only mediator of salvation.' 
Is there an essential difference among, say, Catholics and Protest- 
ants-in belonging to and praying in a particular church or commun- 
ity? The Virgin answered: 
"It is not equally efficacious to belong to or pray in any church 
or community, because the Holy Spirit grants his power differently 
among the churches and ministers. All believers do NOT pray the 
same way. It is intentional that all apparitions are under the 
auspices of the Catholic Church." 

Now, granted at first what I quote is from the author, but I will 
address that a little later, but what about the quote, supposedly the 
Virgin said? At best that reply is confusing, at worst it is heresy, 
because she seems to be saying that it doesn't matter what church you 
pray in, whether it be Catholic or Protestant. Think about this, am 
I supposed to believe that a Protestant, who is objectively, at least, 
in mortal sin, praying in his barren church, is going to offer a more efficacious prayer than a Catholic in the state of grace praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament? Or any other scenario you could name? 
I don't deny that all people, regardless of religion, receive graces, 
no doubt about it they do, but to essentially say that the prayer of 
someone who, in fact, rejects Christ, can offer a more efficacious prayer than someone who is united to Him, is preposterous. 

This is the continuation of my last post. 
But maybe that isn't enough. So here is a quote from: 

Janice T. Connell, The Visions of the Children, The Apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Medjugorje, St. Martin's Press, August 1992) 

Page 119, the 2nd question: 

Q. Is the Blessed Mother calling all people on earth to be Catholic? 

SON. She says it is we who have made divisions. She says we are all 
children of God our Father. Jesus redeemed all. Not everyone accepts 
redemption. We have to choose God, choose heaven. 

What more needs to be said. One of the so-called "visionaries", out 
of her own mouth has given proof that Medjugorge is phony, is not of 
God, preaches indifferentism, and denies that the One, Holy, Catholic 
and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus is in fact just that. No, 
Medjugorje teaches that the Catholic Church is just another religion 
that is dear to "Her and Her Son." Medjugorje teaches that it doesn't 
matter what religion you belong to. It is an insult to God, to the 
Blessed Virgin Mary, the Apostles, and the thousands and thousands of 
martyrs who died for the Catholic Faith. God always calls all people 
to join His Church, and Mary who is Mother of the Church and of us 
all wants ONLY what God wants. "Our Lady of Medjugorje" is not the 
Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. It is none other than satan. 
Oh, I know, what about all the good fruits? Well, let's compare. 
Bayside, New York is condemned, but it had many good fruits, convers- 
ions, return to the Sacraments, apparent miracles, etc. And so did 
Necedah, Wisconsin, and others, but they are condemned. So, why is 
Medjugorje such a big deal? Easy. MONEY, EMOTION, CHARISMATICS. 

Here is one of the messages, taken from medjugorje.org: 

October 1, 1981 

Are all religions the same? "Members of all faiths are equal before 
God. God rules over each faith just like a sovereign over his 
kingdom. In the world, all religions are not the same because all 
people have not complied with the commandments of God. They reject 
and disparage them." 

Are all churches the same? "In some, the strength of prayer to God 
is greater, in others, smaller. That depends on the priests who 
motivate others to pray. It depends also on the power which they 

Why do You appear to us so often and to others who do not follow 
God's path?* "I appear to you often and in every place. To others, I 
appear from time to time briefly. They do not yet follow the way of 
God completely. They are not aware of the gift which He has made 
them. That, no one deserves. with time, they also will come to 
follow the right way." 

* This must be about other apparitions in Hercegovina. 

If this all doesn't prove that Medjugorje is phony, and hence condemned by its own words, then a million Papal statements condemning 
it will mean nothing to anyone at all. 

Granted, some good has come from Medjugorje, but plenty of eveil has 
come from it, divorces, disobedience, priests involved with the 
apparitions having children out of wedlock........... 

The case is closed. 

Something to Consider................. 


This is the ultimate reality, people.



God bless you all.

Hello, Father. Would you please forward this to the General questions forum, there bin is full. Thank you.

Hello. 1st, I realize that this will probably never be
posted on the forums, and that's ok. The truth is there
for those who want the truth, and for those who do not,
it is their loss.

Regarding the answer given to the question on Fatima,
(answered on 2-21-02) about the "Consecration of Russia", I refer you to the words of none other than
Pope John Paul II himself, and I quote:

"In a special way we entrust and consecrate to you those individuals and nations which particularly need to be thus entrusted and consecrated." 

"Enlighten especially the peoples whose consecration and entrustment by us you are awaiting." 

                                  - Pope John Paul II  
                                    March 25, 1984

Now unless "Sister Lucy" has become the Pope, and I
missed out on that bit of news, I respectfully ask
that this obvious lie be stopped. I seem to recall
that the 8th Commandment is "Thou shalt not bear false
witness against thy neighbor." I am tired of this tired
old lie being rehashed over and over. For 'theologians'
who claim to be 'loyal to the Pope', it seems strange
that an obvious contradiction of the Pope can be carried on for so long.

It also seems strange that people who claim that the 
Pope is the final judge on the authenticity of an 
apparition, are somehow unable to accept the very words
spoken by the Pope himself, and which have been public
for nearly 20 years; and instead, substitute the words
of letters from Sister Lucy that may, or may not be
authentic. I don't care if Fr. Fox says he got them
PROOF, that they came from her. It is all too easy to
draw up letters and claim they came from somebody. So,
with all due respect, have the guts to listen to the 
POPE. Oh, and I know that it is a common claim that the Pope said he consecrated Russia. If so, I want the 
name of the document, or video tape of the news coverage of said statement. I want to hear it form his
own mouth. Otherwise, please have the intgrety and 
honesty to say that you have been promoting a lie, and
ask forgiveness. 


I came across your blogspot, and frankly I think you have way
to much time on your hands, and way too little charity.
I find it interesting that you claim you have never read the 
Talmud. Well, Mr. Betts, then how do you know what it says? I
think you should at least have the decency to read the book and
THEN comment on what Robert Sungenis has said. All I see are 
wild accusations of "anti-semitism" and "plagarism" and the

As for Mario Derksen, I found it interesting that you jumped all
over him for the article he posted on Escriva. Did you even READ
that article? I dpoubt it, I think all you saw was that it was by Fr. Peter Scott, and decided that was all you needed to know.
I for one do not support the SSPX, but I also don't go ballistic
when I see anything having to do with them on somebody's website.
I think you need to spend more energy and webspace on your prayer life than in this "campaign" against Sungenis.

Naturally, I expect that you will start trashing me because I
tried to defend Sungenis. Call me a "radtrad" and whatever other names you like, I don't care. I have a life.
It's one thing to point out where someone has gone wrong on something, but when you devote an entire website to it, then it's a sign that you need to get out more.

Let's face it, the real problem with Sungenis isn't that he's
"anti-semitic", it's that he doesn't believe that Pope John Paul II is god, as so many "conservatives" seem to. At no time
in the history of the Church has there been such a "cult of
personality" as with this Pope, even Pope John XXIII wasn't 
treated like this one is. I'm still waiting to see the "conser-
vatives" show a Church teaching which proves that the Pope is
infallible in everything he says or does. 

BTW, by all means post this e-mail on your site, IN ITS ENTIRETY, if I see it on your site, and anything is missing,
rest assured I will be sending a copy of this e-mail to all the
organizations you listed to have them boycott Sungenis. 

After all, don't you think CHARITY is something we should exercise at all times?
