The Power of the Rosary : A Diabolical Possession




A Diabolical Possession
When St. Dominic was preaching the Rosary near Carcassone (1) an Albigensian was brought to him who was possessed by the devil. St. Dominic exorcised him in the presence of a great crowd of people; it appears that more than 12,000 had come to hear him preach. The devils who were in possession of this wretched man were forced to answer St. Dominic’s questions in spite of themselves.
They said that:
1. There were 15,000 of them in the body of this poor man, because he had attacked the 15 mysteries of the rosary;
2. They went on to testify that by preaching the Rosary he (Dominic) put fear and horror into the very depths of hell and that he was the man they hated most throughout the whole world, because of the souls which he snatched from them through devotion to the Holy Rosary;
3. They then revealed several other things.
St. Dominic put his rosary around the Albigensian’s neck and asked the devils to tell him who, of all the saints in heaven, was the one they feared the most, and who should therefore be the most loved and revered by men. At this they let out such unearthly screams that most of the people fell to the ground, faint from fear. Then, using all their cunning, so as not to answer, the devils wept and wailed in such a pitiful way that many of the people wept also, out of purely natural pity. The devils spoke through the mouth of the Albigensian, pleading in a heartrending voice:

Dominic, Dominic, have mercy on us—we promise you that we will never hurt you. You have always had compassion for sinners and those in distress; have pity on us, for we are in grievous straits. We are suffering so very much already, so why do you delight in heightening our pains? Can’t you be satisfied with our suffering without adding to it? Have pity on us! Have pity on us!

St. Dominic was not one whit moved by the pathos of these wretched spirits and told them that he would not let them alone until they had answered his question. Then they said they would whisper the answer in such a way that only St. Dominic would be able to hear. The latter firmly insisted upon their answering clearly and out loud. Then the devils kept quiet and refused to say another word, completely disregarding St. Dominic’s orders—so he knelt down and prayed thus to Our Lady: “Oh, all powerful and wonderful Virgin Mary, I implore you by the power of the Most Holy Rosary, order these enemies of the human race to answer me (9).
No sooner had he made this prayer than a glowing flame leaped out of the ears, nostrils and mouth of the Albigensian. Everyone shook with fear, but the fire did not hurt anyone. Then the devils cried:

Dominic, we beseech you, by the passion of Jesus Christ and by the merits of His Holy Mother and of all the saints, let us leave the body of this man without speaking further—for the angels will answer your question whenever you wish. After all, are we not liars? So why should you want to believe us? Please don’t torture us any more; have pity on us.

“Woe unto you wretched spirits, who do not deserve to be heard,” St. Dominic said, and kneeling down he prayed to Our Lady:

Oh most worthy Mother of Wisdom, I am praying for the people assembled here who have already learned how to say the Angelic Salutation properly. Please, I beg of you, force your enemies to proclaim the whole truth and nothing but the truth about this, here and now, before the multitude.

St. Dominic had hardly finished this prayer when he saw the Blessed Virgin near at hand, surrounded by a multitude of angels. She struck the possessed man with a golden rod that she held and said: “Answer my servant Dominic at once.” (Remember, the people neither saw nor heard Our Lady, but only St. Dominic.) Then the devils started screaming:
Oh you who are our enemy, our downfall and our destruction, why have you come from heaven just to torture us so grievously? O Advocate of sinners, you who snatch them from the very jaws of hell, you who are the very sure path to heaven, must we, in spite of ourselves, tell the whole truth and confess before everyone who it is who is the cause of our shame and our ruin? Oh woe unto us, princes of darkness:
Then listen well, you Christians: the Mother of Jesus Christ is all-powerful and she can save her servants from falling into hell. She is the Sun which destroys the darkness of our wiles and subtlety. It is she who uncovers our hidden plots, breaks our snares and makes our temptations useless and ineffectual.
We have to say, however reluctantly, that not a single soul who has really persevered in her service has ever been damned with us: one single sigh that she offers to the Blessed Trinity is worth far more than all the prayers, desires and aspirations of all the saints.
We fear her more than all the other saints in heaven together and we have no success with her faithful servants. Many Christians who call upon her when they are at the hour of death and who really ought to be damned according to our ordinary standards are saved by her intercession.
Oh if only that Mary (it is thus in their fury that they called her) had not pitted her strength against ours and had not upset our plans, we should have conquered the Church and should have destroyed it long before this; and we would have seen to it that all the Orders in the Church fell into error and disorder.
Now that we are forced to speak we must also tell you this: nobody who perseveres in saying the Rosary will be damned, because she obtains for her servants the grace of true contrition for their sins and by means of this they obtain God’s forgiveness and mercy.
Then St. Dominic had them all say the Rosary very slowly and with great devotion, and a wonderful thing happened: at each Hail Mary that he and the people said together a large group of devils issued forth from the wretched man’s body under the guise of red-hot coals.
When the devils had all been expelled and the heretic was at last entirely free of them, Our Lady (who was still invisible) gave her blessing to the assembled company, and they were filled with joy because of this.
A large number of heretics were converted because of this miracle and joined the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary.

Plotting Revolution

We call upon Bishop Semeraro to please do the same. Affirm Vatican Council II as we interpret it.

If only the SSPX could announce:
1.’We accept Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II which says all need faith abd baptism for salvation and so affirms the traditional interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. We call upon Bishop Marcello Semeraro, the Bishop of Albano to do the same. Affirm Vatican Council II.

2.’We accept Vatican Council II in which LG 8,LG 14, LG 16,NA 2,UR 3 are possibilities and do not refer to explicit exceptions to Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II. We call upon Bishop Semeraro to please do the same. Affirm Vatican Council II as we interpret it.‘Ad Gentes 7 says all need faith and baptism for salvation. Vatican Council II indicates all Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Mulsims and others need to convert into the Church, with faith and baptism, for salvation.
‘Bishop Fellay has said that the SSPX accepts Vatican Council II as a historical event and that he accepts 90% of the Council.

‘So an appeal is made to the bishop of Albano to also affirm Vatican Council II in agreement with the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus ( with no exceptions) as mentioned in the SSPX General Chapter Statement 2012.
We appeal to the Bishop of Albano to interpret and affirm Vatican Council II as we do and set an example for all....

Pope Benedict XVI and the Bishop of Albano made a doctrinal errror with reference to the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 , Catechism of the Catholic Church 1257-1260 and an irrational interpretation of Vatican Council II

Pellegrinaggio Internazionale a Lourdes

di Marco Bongi
Un gruppo di quasi cinquanta italiani ha partecipato, dal 24 al 27 ottobre, al Pellegrinaggio Internazionale a Lourdes organizzato dalla Fraternità Sacerdotale San Pio X. E' stata indubbiamente un'esperienza indimenticabile, piena di profonda spiritualità e ricca di momenti intensi di preghiera.
Erano presenti i tre Vescovi della FSSPX, una grande quantità di sacerdoti, seminaristi e religiosi, ma anche alcune centinaia di malati e, secondo le stime più attendibili, oltre dodicimila fedeli.
Tre sono stati i temi principali che hanno guidato la meditazione dei partecipanti: la Regalità Sociale di Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo, il patrocinio di San Pio X, di cui quest'anno ricorre il centenario della morte e ovviamente la devozione alla Madonna, così profondamente espressa dal grande Pontefice e strettamente connessa alla regalità di Cristo. Se Nostro Signore è Re infatti, Maria Santissima è Regina, dei nostri cuori, come degli Stati e delle società.
Questi temi forti sono stati al centro, sia delle omelie pronunciate durante le S. Messe, sia delle speciali consacrazioni lette da mons. Bernard Fellay, superiore generale della FSSPX, davanti alla S. Grotta di Massabielle. Nella serata di sabato 25 ottobre, al termine della processione "au flambeaux", è stata infatti rinnovata, ancora una volta, la consacrazione della Fraternità al Cuore Addolorato e Immacolato di Maria.
Il giorno successivo, dopo la solenne S. Messa Pontificale, sempre mons. Fellay ha pronunciato invece l'atto di consacrazione a Cristo Re.
Tali argomenti sono stati altresì sviluppati, a beneficio dei nostri connazionali, dal Superiore del Distretto Italiano don Pier Paolo Petrucci che ha tenuto una conferenza domenica 26 ottobre alle ore 18,30. Erano presenti anche il Rettore del Seminario argentino don Davide Pagliarani ed alcuni seminaristi.
I pellegrini italiani hanno seguito con attenzione, spesso in ordine sparso, tutte le principali funzioni. Ciò ha loro consentito, più che di fare gruppo fra di loro, di immergersi letteralmente nell'atmosfera che si respirava ovunque: grande solennità dei riti, silenzio durante le celebrazioni, nonostante il grandissimo numero di presenti, ordine nello svolgimento delle processioni. Ma è stato anche molto bello constatare come, specialmente in Francia, la Tradizione sia davvero viva e piena di energia: tante belle famiglie numerose, ragazze vestite con decenza e non per questo meno belle o meno serene, moltissimi giovani che smentiscono ampiamente il luogo comune dei tradizionalisti gente nostalgica, poveri e ricchi accomunati dalla consapevolezza che i veri beni da difendere non sono quelli materiali, sacerdoti in talare ma affabili e sorridenti, contrariamente a quanto vorrebbe farci credere la "vulgata" laicista.
Tutto l'insieme profumava di sincera e sana religiosità, di serena dignità non ostentata, di un Cristianesimo autenticamente vissuto e non solo proclamato a parole.
Come non ripensare, in tal senso, alle importanti parole pronunciate da mons. Bernard Fellay, nel corso della sua ultima intervista rilasciata dopo il recente incontro col card. Mueller:
"E con il realismo soprannaturale che lo contraddistingueva, Mons. Lefebvre aggiungeva che i risultati concreti della Tradizione – seminari, scuole, priorati, numero dei sacerdoti, dei religiosi e delle religiose, dei seminaristi e dei fedeli… – avevano anch’essi un grande valore di dimostrazione. Contro questi fatti tangibili, non c’è argomento specioso che tenga: contra factum non fit argumentum. Nel caso presente, si potrebbe tradurre quest’adagio latino con la frase di Gesù Cristo: «si giudica l’albero dai suoi frutti». E in questo senso noi dobbiamo, insieme alla professione della fede, rendere testimonianza in favore della vitalità della Tradizione".
Speriamo dunque che presto anche i cattolici italiani possano avviarsi, in numero maggiore, lungo questa strada, apparentemente difficile, ma in realtà possibile e piena di soddisfazioni spirituali. Molti pellegrini italiani sono certamente rientrati in Patria con questo desiderio deposto ai piedi dell'Immacolata nella Grotta di Lourdes.

SSPX can accept the documents of Vatican Council II when the premise is not used in the interpretation

The SSPX must never accept the documents of Vat 2 which are tainted with the spirit of modernism.
Ad Gentes 7 says all need faith and baptism for salvation. Is this modernism for you ?
So why does the SSPX say that Vatican Council II indicates all Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Mulsims and others need to convert into the Church, with faith and baptism, for salvation?
Why do they not say this?
It is because Vatican Council II can be interpreted with an irrational premise or without it. And they are choosing the interpretation with the premise.
So for them Lumen Gentium 16 is an exception to all needing to convert into the Church.
For me it is not an exception.
For them those who are saved with invincible ignorance are known and visible on earth to be exceptions. For me they are only posibilities known to God and I cannot see people who are in Heaven.
So for Bishop Fellay, Vatican Council II is a break with the traditional teaching on other religions and Christian communities.
So the SSPX can accept the documents of Vatican Council II when the premise is not used in the interpretation. So could you.
