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

Christmas Eve of Saint Jerome

One Christmas night, Jerome, the great recluse of Bethlehem, was praying in the blessed grotto. How often in that holy vigil he trembled as he kissed the sacred Crib where the Savior of the world wanted to be born for us.

But all of a sudden, oh wonder! Oh love! The night was illuminated with ravishing brightness, it shone like a radiant day. The Child–God was there, extending His divine arms to His faithful friend.

“Jerome,” He said to him, “oh, see My poverty. To your God who begs, what present will you give?

– To You, O King of love, my heart, my goods, my life!

– That is not enough, give Me more.

– All that I have received from your blessed hand, all that with your grace I have been able to do for you, all my works, Lord, my tears, my prayers, my long nights of study, and my days of pain…, everything is yours, Jesus, take it for you alone.

– No, I want more, said the Divine Child.

– What is it, my tender love, that you are still waiting for? I have given You everything, I have nothing left… Speak, what do You want? Do you want me to pour at the foot of your altar, drop by drop my blood in the golden chalice?

– No, My son, if I have left the splendors of My Heaven, it is not that I need the treasures of mortals, but I hunger to pour into souls the gifts of My love, the treasures of My grace. Destroying every obstacle, I want a divine fire to ignite them forever: Give Me your sins so that I may erase them.”

How can one give one’s sins to the God Child? – One must first recognize them, then regret them and ask God for forgiveness with the firm resolution not to commit them again. They must be confessed to the priest as soon as possible. And God, whose mercy surpasses the greatest of our crimes, since it is infinite, always forgives us. We must therefore have unshakeable faith in His Love and Mercy.

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.
