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...

Divine Child Jesus, I love You with my whole heart

An incorruptible tongue.

Saint Anthony died in Padua in 1231, and soon after his death the construction of the magnificent domed basilica where he was to be buried began. This construction lasted 32 years and the body of the Saint was given a place under the main altar. On the Pope’s order, a commission opened the coffin; the Saint’s body was already rotting, but the tongue was still pink and flexible. St. Bonaventure, who was a member of the commission, fell to his knees and exclaimed, “O blessed tongue, which has always glorified God and excited men for their Creator, it is evident that you have gathered great merits from Him.” This tongue is still now in the cathedral of Padua, in a splendid reliquary adorned with precious stones worth over 25o,ooo fr.

God has often confirmed the holiness of His servants by miracles.

Incorruptible bodies of Saints.

Among them are those of St. Francis Xavier, at Goa in India; of St. Teresa, at the Carmelites of Alba in Spain; of St. Elizabeth of Portugal, at the Poor Clares of Coimbra; of St. Catherine of Bologna, at the Poor Clares of that city; of St. Mary Magdalene of Pazzi, in Florence; of St. Clare of Montefalcone, at the convent of that name; etc., etc. These bodies were not embalmed, and most of them were simply laid to rest in ordinary earth. To this day, not only do they not give off any bad odor, but at certain times they give off a real perfume; moreover, they are not stiff like mummies, but flexible.

These miracles show that these people lived a holy life.

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.
