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

Schoolchildren under the tree.

On April 20, 1890, the schoolchildren of a village near Reichenberg in Bohemia took a trip to the forest and promised to have a good time. But a storm spoiled the party, and as soon as it started to rain, the 31 children took shelter under a thickly grown tree. They devoutly invoked their guardian angel, and suddenly one little girl instinctively felt compelled to leave the tree and took several children with her. The others followed spontaneously, and no sooner had they moved away from the tree than lightning split it and partially consumed it. The parents of the children, who attributed their salvation to their guardian angels, gratefully erected a cross in that memorable spot.

A priest providentially saved.

A village priest, who had a great devotion for his guardian angel and the souls in purgatory, was studying his sermon for the following Sunday. Suddenly he remembered that he had been saving hyacinth bulbs for his father’s grave for more than a week, many of which already had long shoots. “I must plant them this very afternoon,” he said to himself, “otherwise they will not grow next year.” The priest went out and went to the cemetery which was next to the church. While he was busy arranging the grave, he heard a cracking sound followed by a thud, and no sooner had he stood up to realize what had just happened, than the maid came running up shouting, “Father, the ceiling has collapsed.” The old massive ceiling with seven large beams running through it had collapsed.

It was undoubtedly the good angel who had suggested to the priest the idea of planting his hyacinths to honor his father, and had thus preserved him from a certain death.

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.
