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.

A story for every day...

The astronomer and the globe.

The learned astronomer and physicist, Athanasius Kircher (+ in Rome 1680), had a friend who denied the existence of God and claimed that the celestial bodies had spontaneously produced themselves. One day when this agnostic came back to the Jesuit’s study, he saw in a corner a magnificent globe. “Who,” he asked Father Kircher, ”made this globe? – No one; it is of himself. – You are making fun of me! – No, I’m not. If the immense globes of the firmament were not created, why does it take a craftsman for this little ball?” The libertine went away confused and obliged to confess that his principle was absurd.

The existence of God is deduced from the existence of creatures.

Schiller’s poems produced by chance.

A so-called free-thinker once claimed in the presence of a priest that the world is the effect of chance. “Ah!” said the priest, “do you also know how Schiller’s works were produced? I will tell you. Schiller had in his study a large pile of paper. Flies, which by chance had legs full of ink, wandered over this paper, and the lines that resulted from this, gave pieces of verse. Science has shown that Schiller had nothing in common with their composition.”

If it is absurd to believe that Schiller’s poems are the effect of chance, and not of the poet’s intelligence, it is still more absurd to believe in the fortuitous origin of the universe without the assistance of divine Intelligence.

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.
