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.

Holy Family

The genius of Napoleon.

In his exile of Saint Helena, Napoleon, returned to himself, liked to discuss subjects of philosophy and religion. General Bertrand, one of his intimates, was an unbeliever and said one day: “God? What is God? You have never seen Him. – You have not, replied Napoleon, seen my intelligence, and after my feats of arms and my victories, you spoke of my genius. And yet what are my works compared to the works of creation? What are my most brilliant maneuvers compared to the movement of the stars? If from the wonders of human activity you conclude to a high intelligence which you do not see, why do you not want to infer from the magnificent spectacle of the universe to an invisible Creator?”

How just is the word of the Psalmist, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament declares the work of His hands.” (Psalm 18:2)

The journey around the world.

Suppose a ship had set sail from Trieste, passed through the Straits of Gibraltar, rounded Cape Horn, crossed the Pacific Ocean, sailed past Australia and the Indies, and returned to Trieste through the Suez Canal, and someone claimed that this ship had made this crossing at the whim of the winds. Who would not consider this statement as nonsense? Everyone will admit that a well-tried pilot steered the ship. The same is true of the orbit of the stars, which execute their revolution with mathematical precision: it can never be explained apart from an infinite Wisdom.

From the order of creation we must conclude that there is a supreme Engineer.

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.
