Great are the advantages to be derived from meditating on the Cross, the first of which is, not only a detestation of past sins, but also the firm resolution to fight against our ever present disorderly appetites, which crucified our Savior. 

The second advantage is the forgiveness of sins, obtained from Jesus crucified, and a wholesome self-contempt which inspires us forever to forsake offending Him, and continually to love and serve Him with all our hearts in acknowledgment of what He suffered for our sakes. 

The third is the unceasing labor with which we root out all depraved habits, however trivial they may appear. 

The fourth consists in our ardent efforts to imitate our Divine Master, who, according to Saint Peter, "suffered for us, leaving us an example so that we could follow in His footsteps" (1P 2, 21).

"What a happiness, not only to see Jesus Christ, but also to hear him: to carry him in his arms, to lead him from place to place, to embrace and caress him, to feed him, and to be privy to all the great secrets which were concealed from the princes of this world! O astonishing elevation! O unparalleled dignity! That the mother of God, queen of heaven, should call you her lord; that God himself, made man, should call you father, and obey your commands. O glorious Triad on earth, Jesus, Mary, Joseph, how dear a family to the glorious Trinity in heaven, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Nothing is on earth so great, so good, so excellent."

 The sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church, will be thoroughly attacked and profaned. Masonry, then reigning, will implement iniquitous laws aimed at extinguishing this sacrament. They will make it easy for all to live in sin, thus multiplying the birth of illegitimate children without the Church’s blessing. The Christian spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the precious light of Faith until it reaches the point that there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs.”

Upon ordination, the priest receives the power to offer the holy sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead.

The divine sacrifice of the Mass contains and immolates the same Jesus Christ who offered Himself on the Cross, but without the shedding of blood.

Through Him we obtain mercy and find grace, succor, and blessing.

Let us draw near to God with a contrite and penitent heart, with a right faith, and in a spirit of fear and respect.

The Mass is offered for the sins, the sorrows, the satisfactions, and other necessities of the faithful.

The Mass is offered for the living and for those who have died in Jesus Christ, and who are not yet entirely purified.

There is nothing more beautiful, greater, and holier than offering Holy Mass for the living and for the dead.

It is the perfect act of divine worship, the only one capable of reconciling men with God.

The holy sacrifice of the Mass relieves the souls in purgatory.

The Holy Mass spreads on sinners the fruits of Christ's Passion and all the benefits of heaven.

Humanity does not have the strength to remove the obstacle that it has created trying to prevent your return. Send your Angel, oh Lord, and make our night become bright as the day.

How many hearts await you, oh Lord! How many souls are consumed in the longing for the day when only You will live and reign in all hearts!

Come, Jesus Our Lord.    

There are many signs that the time of your return is not far away.

Oh, Mary! You, who have seen your Son resurrected, who with the first apparition of Jesus saw the unspeakable anguish produced by the night of the Passion suppressed, Mary, to You we offer the first fruits of this day. To You, wife of the Divine Spirit, our heart and our hope.

Pius XII, Easter Message of 1957

This is the great celebration of those who share the triumph and glory of Christ for all eternity, for having been faithful to the Grace of God, striving to following the Divine Master closely, in many cases to the point of martyrdom.

This feast has its origins in the 4th century, when the number of martyrs of the Church became such that it was impossible to devote each day of the year to remember a single martyr. So, the Church chose to have one feast to honor all those who had reached Heaven, on a single day, once a year.

When on May 13, 610, Pope Boniface IV dedicated the Roman Pantheon to Christian worship, he consecrated the new temple to the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the martyrs. From then on, the Feast of All Saints was fixed on that date and would remain that way for many years, until Pope Gregory IV, in the 7th century, moved the celebration to the first day of the month of November. 

It is very likely that Pope Gregory's decision responded to the desire to counteract the pagan festival of “Samhain” or the Celtic New Year, which was celebrated on the night of October 31 and whose current equivalent is Halloween.

May these heroes and heroines of God intercede for us and help us achieve eternal happiness like them!
