For the Preservation of the Deposit of the Faith

For the Kingdom of God to come!


The particular goal of the Order of the Magnificat of the Mother of God is the preservation of the Deposit of the Faith by religious teaching in all its forms. God has established it as “a rampart against the almost general apostasy” that has invaded Christianity and in particular the Roman Church.

Our Lady of Purgatory

God does not let Himself be outdone in generosity

St. Gertrude had given every day of her life to the benefit of suffering souls. As she lay on her deathbed, she was assailed by the temptations of the devil, who tried to persuade her that she had delivered so many souls from purgatory precisely to go and take their place and suffer more than they did. While she was in the grip of these temptations, she saw Our Lord, her heavenly Spouse, appear before her and say to her: “What is the cause of your sorrow, O Gertrude?” She answers, “Lord, I grieve because I see myself about to die, without any capital of good works that can satisfy for so many offenses I have committed.” Then the Lord, smiling gently at her, consoles her. “My daughter Gertrude, He said to her, so that you may know how pleasing to Me your charity towards these souls and your devotion have been, I am handing over to you at this very moment, without exception, all the sorrows that would have been reserved for you. Moreover, I who promised a hundred for one to those who are animated by My love, I want to reward you again by increasing the degree of glory that awaits you up there. All the souls you have relieved will come by My command and introduce you into the celestial Jerusalem amidst their hymns.” The Saint expired a few moments later, full of confidence and joy.

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.

My Jesus, forgiveness and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
