In a village in Walloon Brabant, a man who indulged almost daily in the greatest excesses of drunkenness and never ceased to blaspheme, fell ill after remaining some years without approaching the sacraments. Attempts were made to convert this unfortunate man, but in vain. When all efforts failed, the Rosary was recited for him. A person who was interested in the fate of this sinner, went to him, pressed him in every way and could obtain nothing.
Finally, after having urged him for a long time, she said to him: “I only ask you one thing, and I will leave you alone. Recite a Hail Mary with me.” She dared not ask for more.
The sick man consented, recited the Hail Mary, and immediately he was all changed. He asked for a confessor, confessed his faults to him, received the sacraments with the most edifying piety, and died with the best of feelings. Oh, the power of the Angelic Salutation! After having begun our Redemption, it continues it in all the centuries by unheard-of prodigies.
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.
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.
