Easter Wednesday

"Jesus told me that immediately after His resurrection He went to see our Lady because she then had great need and that the pain she experienced so absorbed and transpierced her soul that she did not return immediately to herself to rejoice in that joy...What must have been that transpiercing of the Blessed Virgin's soul!"
--St. Teresa of Avila

Tenebrae 2021

The word Tenebrae means darkness, and represents the prayers formerly said in the dark hours of the morning. In the Tenebrae the Church mourns the passion and death of Jesus and urges her children to return to God; she therefore makes use of those mournful words of Jeremiah: “Jerusalem! Jerusalem, be converted to the Lord, thy God!”

Today, the feast of the Annunciation, is Day 1 of the 9-month "3 Impossible Things" Novena.

A prayerful way to accompany Mary through her holy pregnancy - the 3 Impossible Things Novena. Starting today, and ending Christmas Day, we honor the 9 months our Lord was in her womb.

It is said by many that this is the most powerful novena they have ever participated in. It will take literally about 5-6 minutes to say every day. The formula is this:
***********
Pray the following prayer devoutly every day from March 25th through December 25th for each of three intentions.

"Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen."

V - "Pray for us, most holy mother of God."
R - "That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

"Virgin of the Incarnation, a thousand times we greet thee, a thousand times we praise thee for thy joy when God was incarnated in thee. Because thou art so powerful a Virgin and Mother of God, grant what we ask of thee for the love of God."

Here state intention Number 1;
Repeat all of above and state intention Number 2;
Repeat a third time and state intention Number 3.

CONCLUSION:

After above prayers and intentions say the Memorare.

Remember, O most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my mother.
To thee do I cry, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of Grace...

Blessed and praised be the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, in Heaven, on earth, and everywhere. AMEN.

February 22 is the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, a first class feast for the FSSP. It is the only day of the year that Bernini’s sculpture in St. Peter's, “The Throne of St. Peter,” is adorned with candles.

Additionally, The black bronze statue of St. Peter -attributed to renowned Italian sculptor Arnulfo di Cambio - is dressed in a cope and tiara, with a ring on his finger and pectoral Cross. (also done June 29, the feast of Sts. Peter & Paul). This is the statue with the worn down right toes due to centuries of pilgrims touching them
