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.

The Holy Family - Jesus, Mary, Joseph

A twelve-hour wait.

King Frederick VII of Denmark, who was very affable, saw one day, while still crown prince, a carriage that had been waiting for several hours in the vicinity of the castle of Odensée.

The prince started a small conversation with the coachman and learned that he had brought an officer and had to wait until the end of the visit. Going to the ball at ten o’clock in the evening, the prince saw the coachman at the same place, and coming back from the ball at about four o’clock in the morning, he saw his man still at the same place. The prince was indignant, gave the coachman a silver coin and told him to go back. At first the man turned a deaf ear. But the prince made himself known and promised to take full responsibility; whereupon the coachman left. Not finding the carriage, the officer spread invectives against the coachman. On returning he found an envoy of the prince who mandated him to the palace for 8 hours. But the officer had to wait. Ten o’clock rang, noon sounded, the officer thought that perhaps he would be invited to dinner. It was not the case. It was 8 o’clock in the evening and our man was feeling hungry and frustrated. Finally, after 12 hours of waiting, the prince sent for him, gave him the most gracious reception and said to him: “Sir, it is only a trifle, I wanted to tell you that it was I who ordered this poor devil, who had been waiting for you for 12 hours, to return. I think, it goes without saying, that you will not worry him for that.” The officer understood the purpose of this singular audience, and henceforth he showed more compassion for his neighbor.

God will deal with us in the same way. Those who have been merciless to others will languish in purgatory for a long time.

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.
