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...

Our Lady of the Assumption

True courage.

Between the small port of Auray in Brittany, and the famous village of Sainte-Anne, renowned for its famous pilgrimage, lived in a small hut Marc-Thomas and his son Vincent.

Marc was only fifty-six years old, but he was broken, ill and sick, and when the conscription came to take away his support, he was very sad. However, he submitted without a murmur: he was a Christian, he respected the law.

When Vincent left, he said to him: “My child, never forget that I consecrated you to the Blessed Virgin; invoke Her always, be faithful to Her, and you will come back safe and sound. If you die, She will receive you in paradise and you will not regret the earth.”

Vincent was incorporated in a regiment which left almost immediately for the Crimea.

I won’t tell you, here, how many trials Vincent was exposed to, but he said to himself, “Can a person consecrated to the Blessed Virgin do this?” If it was no, it was no for him. His friends laughed at him, but their jokes didn’t scare him any more than enemy fire.

One day, one of his comrades, irritated that he could not succeed in dragging him into his debauchery parties, hurled insults at him and wanted to force him to fight. “I will not fight,” said Vincent, “because neither of us has the right to deprive the army of a soldier; but tomorrow perhaps an assault will be made on Sebastopol, and then there we will see if we fear fire.”

The next day an assault was given, and near Vincent, the soldier who had provoked him fell wounded. At once a sortie of the besieged made the besiegers retreat, and the soldier was going to be abandoned under the feet of the Russians’ horses. Vincent moves quickly, takes the wounded man, loads him on his shoulders and brings him back to the camp.

When the wounded man could speak: “Oh my God! he said to Vincent, how could you run fast enough to escape both of us from the Russians’ weapons? – Oh! answered Vincent, I invoked the good Virgin Mary and I felt wings: She sent me Her angels, because I had to save your life: yesterday you wanted to kill me.

– It is true, says the soldier, your virtue bothered me and today I owe her my life. But I am converted and I want to consecrate myself to Mary like you.”

Do we, like Vincent, want to attract souls to Mary, like him, let us make our virtue useful: let us do good, always good, nothing but good, and let us know how to make it lovable, for Mary is the most lovable Mother.

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.
