Additional Audio Prayers:
The Angelus (Latin for “angel”) is a Catholic prayer with origins in churches, convents, and monasteries where it is traditionally prayed three times daily (6AM, 12 Noon, and 6PM) to commemorate the Incarnation as written in Luke’s Gospel (1:26–38) when the angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary with a message from God that she would conceive a child to be born the Son of God.
Pope St. John Paul had a great devotion to The Divine Mercy, associated with the apparitions of Jesus to St. Faustina Kowalska, and instituted the Feast of Divine Mercy to be celebrated the first Sunday after Easter. The Hour of Mercy (3PM) is the time of Jesus’ death, according to St. Faustina’s diary, and is a popular time to recite this Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
Fiat is a Nativity story in audio drama form, taking you along with Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem and telling the story of Jesus’ birth through the eyes of those who were there along the way to that manger in Bethlehem.
The Litany of Humility is commonly attributed to Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val (1865-1930), who served as Cardinal Secretary of State under Pope Pius X, but earlier versions of the litany are also known.
The Seven Sorrows of Mary devotion was passed on by St. Bridget. The tradition holds those who daily honor the Blessed Virgin Mary by meditating on her tears and sorrows (dolors) each day will be granted these seven graces:
1. I will grant peace to their families.
2. They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.
3. I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.
4. I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.
5. I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.
6. I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.
7. I have obtained from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.
St. Bridget, a 14th-century mystic, died on July 23, 1373 (which is now her feast day). Throughout her life she received numerous revelations and this particular prayer was allegedly given with great promises attached. Unusually, these mediations are said daily for twelve years to honor the moments in his life when Christ shed His Precious Blood. While there are various reports on this particular prayer, various resources show these prayers being approved by both Pope Clement XII and Pope Pius IX.
The stations of the cross based on those celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991, prayed by Greg and Jennifer Willits, founders of Rosary Army. Visit www.RosaryArmy.com for more from Rosary Army.
