Stational Church: Wednesday in Holy Week

Inside St. Mary Major (c) A Catholic Life Blog, 2016

Today is Spy Wednesday. Today's Stational Church is at the Basilica of St. Mary Major.  For information on this devotion, see the Stational Churches of Lent Homepage. I will post on each Stational Church for Lent. Information is from the Canon Regulars of St. John Cantius:
Could we have a more powerful leader to Jesus Christ on this, the last day of preparation, than Mary, our Most Holy Mother? Into thy hands, dearest Mother, we place the humble efforts we have made since Ash Wednesday. Mother of Our Savior, carry them, together with thy own most worthy and most pleasing merits, to the throne of divine mercy. Petition the eternal Father that through the infinite merits of His Son and through thy powerful intercession, He would "look down on this His family for which our Lord Jesus Christ hesitated not to be delivered up into the hands of wicked man, and to undergo the torment of the Cross."

If a few hours separate us from the arrival of the Paschal Mysteries. "Behold, the Savior comes. Behold His reward is with Him and His work before Him."

Only all men the Savior died — for Mary and for Judas, and for all who stand between these two. The winepress of the Cross has made one "Queen of all the Saints," and the other—God only knows! Lord, turn not away thy face from Thy servant. Mary, my Mother, pray for me that the Divine Blood of Thy Son be to me a laver of redemption and of life.

Praise God for you and your website that believe in traditional Catholicism and are working within the structure of the catholic faith to abolish the heretical Vatican II and to correct those heresies as did previous Popes throughout Catholicism and to restore it to its true glory before the era of Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI the facilitators of Karl Rahner's false theory of Nouvelle Théologie that was rejected and condemned in the encyclical Humani Generis of Pope Pius XII. Pure and simple it is ugly modernism, trying to "protestantize" the catholic faith. We must defend our faith passionately. I came across you on twitter and followed you. I am @_MsHeather on twitter

May God♥ Bless you always!
