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...

When Our Lady of the Rosary intervenes...

A thirty-six year old woman lived in a hamlet in the large municipality of Beveren, in the country of Waes. Her name was Marie-Louise Keppens. For sixteen years she had been suffering from terrible neuralgic pains, which made it impossible for her to move and to go to church. Three doctors had declared the disease incurable. The poor girl, abandoned by the men of art, thought of going on pilgrimage to Ghent to invoke Our Lady of the Rosary in the Dominican church. In vain they tried to dissuade her, and she had to be led before the statue venerated in that city. During the salute, Marie Keppens recited her rosary piously. Suddenly she felt a strange chill, and she said to her sister, “I think I am cured.” Her sister motioned for her to remain silent, and it was as she left the church that her healing was noted. She began to walk on her own, and made the journey on foot to the Waes station, half a mile away. This was at the beginning of October 1885. Several newspapers reported the fact. The inhabitants of Beveren, struck by the prodigy, made a pilgrimage of thanksgiving at the end of the month to the same shrine, where Marie Keppens went again, to thank her heavenly benefactress. Needless to say, the recitation of the rosary is the favorite exercise of these pilgrimages.

Pilgrims that we are here below, in this valley of tears, let us advance each day towards the Jerusalem of heaven, reciting on our way the most holy Rosary of Mary.

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.
