"To keep ourselves right in all things, we ought to hold fast to this principle: What seems to me to be white, I will believe to be black if the hierarchical Church thus determines it. For we believe that between Christ our Lord, the Bridegroom, and the Church, His Spouse, there is the one same Spirit who governs and guides us for the salvation of our souls..." - Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius [365]

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness & Protector of the Family and of the Unborn

Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness of the Archdiocese of Cebu. Let us pray then to Our Lady, that she may always protect each and every family and each and every unborn child. And so with the Universal Church we pray:

Our Lady of Guadalupe, who blessed Mexico and all the Americas by your appearance to Juan Diego, intercede for the holy Church, protect the pope, and help everyone who invokes you in their necessities.

O mystical rose, hear our prayers and our petitions, especially for the particular one we are praying for at this moment (mention your request).

Since you are the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from your most holy Son the grace of keeping our faith, sweet hope in the midst of the bitterness of life, burning charity, and the precious gift of final perseverance.

Amen.

*This prayer and many others can be found in: "Catholic Prayers & Devotions"

    So you're actually a Jesuit who prays for the Church, the Pope and everyone :)

    You'd be surprised at what some of the Society's American members (usually those that were active in the 1970s) are doing...whether they've discerned enough about the 'sentire cum ecclesia' part.

    I hope God makes it possible for you to get ordained...the Church and especially the Society need Christians like you who fight for justice while not neglecting your maintain dutiese as the bringer of the Eucharistic King.

    Ad Jesu per Mariam.
