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.

Jesus Crucified with His Most Blessed Mother Mary

O Jesus Crucified!

Help us to carry our cross as You carried Yours!

Way of the Cross

Among the expiatory exercises, the Way of the Cross is one of the most touching and salutary.

It was the Blessed Virgin Mary Herself who gave us the first example of this devotion.

“It is said that after the Ascension, when the Mother of God was still living in Jerusalem, She never ceased to follow the sorrowful path of Her Son and to water with Her tears the places where He had suffered. She had measured the distances step by step and Her love could not grow weary of contemplating this road of sorrows. Far away, in Ephesus, from those places so dear to Her Heart, She did not discontinue a single day Her meditations on the Passion. Near Her home was a path that led to the top of a hill… She often went there alone and followed it in prayer, as She used to on the way to Calvary.

Later, She divided it into fourteen stations, measuring, according to the number of steps She had so often counted, the distance between the various places where some event of the Savior’s Passion had taken place. At each of these places She erected a stone, or if there was a tree there, She made a mark. The path led to a wood, where a mound represented Calvary and a small grotto, the Holy Sepulchre. Our Blessed Mother would follow this new way of the Cross, immersed in deep contemplation. She stopped at each of the stations and meditated in Her Heart the mysterious meaning and thanked the Lord for His love, shedding tears of compassion.” (According to the oldest tradition)

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.
