What I’ve learnt today, April the 8th

Ok, there goes my story.

What I’ve learnt today:
1) The rosary 150 consists on 150 prayers to God Our Lady with NO INTERRUPTIONS.
2) To err is human: I’m putting back the phrase “Holy art Thou among women.”

This morning, I took the bus to go to work (I don’t have a car, by the way), and I sat next to a christian young man, he was reading his bible, on the book of acts, I don’t remember precisely which chapter he was reading. Anyway, I decided to pray one rosary 150, Guatemala is a country that promotes “freedom of religion” (anything but Catholicism), so I took my counting device and began to pray 150 uninterrupted prayers to God Our Lady… This young man became a little bit surprised of what I was doing, probably he never saw a man praying in the way old grannies used to do more than 20 years ago. He tried to stay focused on his lecture, then he covered his bible so I wouldn’t be able to see it.

For 20 minutes he pretended to be reading. Then, I realized he was keeping an eye on me, trying to figure out what I was praying. After that, he began to pray to his deity, but maybe for 5 minutes only, he got tired at the end. When I had maybe 15 prayers left, he tried to interrupt me, by asking me to tell him the hour. Instead of responding him, I pointed to another man to ask him for the time, without interrupting my rosary 150. He failed on interrupting my duty, he seemed to be upset about it. The special thing is that I put back the phrase “Holy art Thou among women” (Santa eres entre todas las mujeres) to my prayers, so I realized I should not had removed it, in a very simple and elegant way.

“For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation is possible.”

The name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is God Our Lady

It is interesting to read that someone is claiming on Fatimamovement.org that the name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is “The Lady of the Rosary”. You could fall for it, regarding the recent information that is available. But consider this: God Our Lady has revealed Herself to those She has selected by using terms people were aware of and could understand. How can it be?

First of all, I recommend you to pay attention of what is written on recent books and old books. Please try to read between the lines of everything; probably you haven’t heard of what I’m going to say, but there’s something I will name as “Catholic Logic.” God Our Lady has given us hints about how to distinguish Catholic Religion, and She presents the clues with logic.

Ok, let’s begin with God Our Lady of Guadalupe: when She revealed Herself to Juan Diego, She named Herself as “The Mother of The True God”. She did not use the attribute “Lady of the Rosary” nor the “Lady of the Brown Scapular”. Think about this: She did not offer the Rosary to Juan Diego, nor the Brown Scapular. If She had introduced Herself using those titles, Juan Diego would not had understood. Check it out: She did not say: “I am the The Mother of God”, because She had to be especific; the rest of religions usually say they have deities (actually they are demons or deified people). That’s why She said “I am the Mother of The True God”.

The epithet “The Mother of The True God” was something Juan Diego could understand quickly and the image is a great proof of it: She is teaching us to pray to the Catholic Trinity. I think the Sacraments were valid during that period of time (around 1531); that’s why She asked the people of Mexico (at that time it was called New Spain) to become Catholic through the ordinary way, that is through the sacraments. The people of the 3 Americas had the privilege of receiving an image we could use to Catholize everyone else, but the Enemies of the Catholic Church came up with so many “diverting devotions” that divided the Catholics all around the world.

Keep in mind this: Her name is God Our Lady; for a long long time She has been known as “Our Lady”, not “The Lady”. There are two apparitions, manifestations that are clearly identified with Her Name: Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Fatima. On others (which almost all of them are heretical) the members of the Vatican Sect uses the terms “Virgin” and “Our Lady” with no distinction, the laity often interpret that “virgin” is a correct term for the Mother of God, but then you realize calling God Our Lady “virgin” is not appropriate. God Our Lady and Virgin Mary are not the same.

The Brown Scapular works as a “reinforcement” of the Sacrament of Baptism. As Mr Nobody once said, it’s a visible mark of Catholicism for the one who wears it. Considering the Brown Scapular as a “sacrament” by itself, can be considered a contradiction of the Catholic Faith given by God Jesus Christ. One thing we must know is that God does not fall on contradiction, if you have the chance to be baptized as Catholic, please do it, and wear the Brown Scapular. Only if you can’t find someone to baptize properly as Catholic, then wear the Brown Scapular as long as you can find someone to baptize you as Catholic. I don’t believe administrating the sacraments to yourself can be effective. If you die and you could not have the chance to be baptized as Catholic, but you wear the Brown Scapular and you kept its requirements, well, God Our Lady will release you from the Purgatory, that’s Her promise and it’s not a contradiction to Catholic Religion.

The requirements for the use of the Brown Scapular (either its origin might come from God, or the clergy, or the laity) were created to preserve our souls and for avoiding sin, they sound convenient and are in line with Catholic Doctrine, and those are:
1) Wear the Brown Scapular all day and all night, so you realize the commitment you have.
2) Keep chastity according to your state (single or married), so you don’t get into trouble.
3) Pray everyday the Rosary 150. The little office and the pentagram rosary are useless.

Now it’s time to talk about God Our Lady of Fatima: when She revealed Herself to the 3 kids, She named Herself as “The Lady of the Rosary.” She did not use “The Lady of the Psalter” because the kids would not had understood; they were familiar with the term “Rosary”. And She did not say “I am Our Lady of the Rosary”, because that sounds akward: “I am Our” does not sounds logic. Remember, languages are not a problem to God. Anyway, the devoted Catholics continue to refer to Her as “Our Lady”, as I said that is Her name. She would not restrict Herself to one of the many epithets we have given to Her.

An interesting fact: God Our Lady introduced Herself as “The Lady of the Rosary” for 2 reasons, which the rest of the world are not full aware of:
1) To make a distinction between Our Lady of the Rosary (that is, Her) and the Virgin of the Rosary (that is, Mary). The Virgin of the Rosary is usually portraited carrying a baby. But the members of the vatican sect don’t pay attention to those details: they produce material invoking “Virgin Mary of Guadalupe”, or “Saint Mary of the Rosary”, and that creates more confusion.

When you say “Our Lady of the Rosary” the vatican followers usually asociate that description with the virgin mary and the pentagram rosary. That’s why I don’t recommend to say “The Lady of the Rosary”. I will repeat this until I die: God Our Lady use the term “Lady of the Rosary” to introduced Herself to the kids. The 3 kids already knew Her name: Our Lady. St Lucia had the opportunity to see by herself the revelation that Our Lady is God on the Apparition of Tuy.

2) In order to promote the keys to recover the Catholic Religion and the Catholic Church through the Rosary we should restore: the Fatima Prayer was the first key, it has to be prayed immediatly after the lord’s prayer. The enemies of the Catholic Church, on the contrary, put that prayer after the glory be, and some of them say it’s optional and don’t pray it at all. For not obeying to God, we had WWII and almost WWIII, which we are avoiding by praying. After all we know now, the phrases “Preach my Psalter” and “Pray the rosary” we realize they refer to the Rosary 150.

Summarizing: The name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is God Our Lady. Simple and clear. Obviously, nowadays we only have the Conditional Baptism, The Rosary 150 and the Brown Scapular, but we need to recover Catholic Religion so those who are not born yet have a chance to go to Heaven.

Well, let’s start from the point where Saint Dominic began to proclaim publicly the Rosary 150 (Our Lady’s Psalter of 150 uninterrupted Aves), and Innocent III authorized the creation of the Dominican Order. During this same time a movement within the Catholic hierarchy started, called “Devotio Moderna”, by which members of religious orders began to make their own interpretations of the Bible, sought to “enlighten” somehow, among other things. It’s curious to note that this “modern movement” would disappear later, after the Protestant Reform was established (By the way, there are scholars who identify some religious who were part of this “modern devotion” as “proto-Protestants”).

“Devotio Moderna arose at the same time as Christian Humanism, a meshing of Renaissance Humanism and Christianity, and is related to German mysticism and other movements which promoted an intense personal relationship with God. Practitioners of the Devotio Moderna emphasized the inner life of the individual and promoted meditation according to certain strictures (sic). With the ideals of Christian Humanism, Devotio Moderna recommended a more individual attitude towards belief and religion. It is regarded sometimes as a contributing factor for Lutheranism and Calvinism. It was also a major influence upon Erasmus, who was brought up in this tradition.”

About the Ave prayer we are going to say the following: Originally this prayer did not include the words “Mary” and “Jesus.” This prayer was known by the name “Angelic Salutation” and it was something like this: “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women.” In the course of time, someone came up with the idea of adding Elizabeth’s greeting, then the word “Mary”. At the time of Thomas Aquinas, back in 1272-1273, using the word “Jesus” in the Hail Mary was not yet widespread. The second part of the Ave was added much later, but we will discuss that in other post. Likewise, the word “lord” is a tricky term, which we will also discuss about it on another occasion. Let’s continue with the story of Our Lady’s Psalter.

During the years 1200-1550, in addition to the devotion of Our Lady’s Psalter (150 uninterrupted Aves), there were also the Davidic Psalter (150 Psalms) the Psalter of 150 Lord’s prayers, Psalter of Jewish Jesus, the Psalter of Jewish Mary, the Psalter of the Passion of the Lord, the Holy Cross Psalter, the Rosary of Mary, the Rosary of the Passion of the Lord, etc. Bear in mind that since that time the word “psalter” was used for describing a set of 150 prayers and “rosary” to 50 prayers.

It can be said that Our Lady’s Psalter competed directly against the Psalter of 150 Lord’s prayers -even the same counting device was used for both practices-, and the mutilated version of 50 Aves. Note that for these 3 cases, the same prayers were used repeatedly. In contrast, the other “devotions” were designed for people who could read, therefore, beyond the reach of the majority of that period of time. These other “devotions” consisted of stanzas more or less associated with biblical
verses.

Something that will be seen throughout this research is the following: Over the last 8 centuries religious orders, directly or indirectly, have promoted “devotions” to divert attention from the Catholic faithful, so they don’t pray Our Lady’s Psalter. From 10-prayers devotions to the chaplet of divine mercy; from the Servite rosary to the luminous mysteries; from the Carthusian rosary to Pius V’s pentagram rosay: all these “devotions” have been a great harm for the true Catholic Faith.

Since the time of Saint Dominic until the Bull “Romani Consueverunt Pontifices” by Pius V, Our Lady’s Psalter or Rosary 150 underwent the following alterations:

During the years 1200-1300 the Psalter of Our Lady (150 uninterrupted Aves, keep that in mind), and its mutilated version (that is, the recitation of 50 Aves, known at that time as “rosary”) did not include any Lord’s prayer. There’s something very important: only the encyclical Supremi Apostolatus Officio Leo XIII published in 1883 mentioned the following: “There is a very pious rite which, to protect against the dangers that threaten the world, consists of reciting the Ave many times … as the Psalms of David (150) “, words attributed to Urban IV, written in 1264, and we never heard of it before and after 1883. From what we conclude that Leo XIII, as well as other occupants of the chair of St. Peter, has hidden crucial information for the Catholic Church.

Pay attention to this: the “devotions” addressed to “Mary”, which consisted of 150 verses in the case of the Psalters and 50 for the rosaries, were usually integrated as follows: the first 50 prayers began with the word “Ave”, the second 50 started with the word “Salve”, and the last 50 with the word “Gaude”. Psalters and rosaries for the Jewish Jesus had a very similar structure, except for these 3 words: Ave, Salve, Gaude, which were not included. From the Catholic point of view, the problem arose when religious orders began to mix these devotions, to the detriment of the Psalter of Our Lady (which we know as Holy Rosary 150).

Some self-proclaimed “mystical” guys emerged from the “Modern Devotion” and were influenced by works such as “The Imitation of Christ”, one of them was the Carthusian Henry of Kalkar. Probably between 1367-1384 (or so) he began to spread among his ecclesiastical friends the version of the Psalter created by him, which grouped the Ave beads in tens, and divided each 10 Aves with a bigger bead for praying one Lord’s prayer. He wrote a work named “Psalterium 150 continens dictiones B. Virginis”, surely the explanation for this modification is written on it. He did that because “Mary” asked him to do so. Perhaps that’s the reason the Dominican rosary contains 15 Lord’s prayer beads and the 150 Ave beads in a single counting device.

There was a time when it was believed that the first part of the Ave was not a prayer by itself, but just a greeting. Then some people began to add a few lines, stanzas, as they say, to make the Ave sound better. The first experiment was to aggregate after the word “Jesus” some biblical description (a clear influence of the Psalter of Jesus). This was the work of the Carthusian Dominic of Prussia, back in the years 1409- 1415 – it is said that it took him a bit time, up to 1439 or more- who created 50 verses at the beginning, then completed 150 stanzas .Dominic of Prussia talks about this on his “Liber experientiarum” or “experientiae “.

Meanwhile, there are two “devotions” born among some religious orders that made things more complicated: the Crown of the 7 Joys, by a Franciscan back in 1422, and the Crown of 7 Sorrows, promoted by the Servites. Some say this “devotion” of the 7 sorrows arose during the 13th century, I have my doubts about it; probably was created in the early 15th century.

A bonus: During the time of Alanus de Rupe the so-called “Mysteries of the Rosary” did not exist yet. He even advocated for praying the Psalter of 150 Aves, because he claimed that praying only 50 Aves -as the Carthusians did- was a threat to the traditional Our Lady’s Psalter (the Rosary 150). He was right about that.

And what did the occupants of St. Peter’s Chair say about it? Oh surprise, the first mention after 1264 comes from Sixtus IV:

Bull Ea quae ex fidelium, by Sixtus IV, May the 12th, 1479: In this bull indulgences to those who recite the Psalter of 150 Aves are exposed (please notice that in the text Our Lady and “Mary” are intermingled). And also it’s written that the 150 Aves are divided into tens, and between each decade a Lord’s prayer is inserted. We know where those changes come from. Why the insistence on inserting those lord’s prayers? Second surprise: Sixtus IV believed that the kabbalah was good for Catholicism.

Bula Pastoris aeterni, by Leo X, October the 9th, 1520: indulgences are granted. No mysteries are mentioned, the 150 Aves are divided into tens and separated by Lord’s prayers; however, the terms “Psalter” and “rosary” began to be used indistinctly. Keep in mind that at this time “rosary” was used for referring a set of 50 prayers.

Bula Etsi temporalium cura nos, by Clement VII, May the 8th, 1534: Rosary confraternities were approved and indulgences were granted . In this bull Clement VII refers to the two previous bulls, written by Sixtus IV and Leo X. Although it’s required to recite the 150 Ave entirely, later in the same text it’s allowed to pray in three parts of 50 Aves each. This version does not include mysteries.

The previously mentioned bull Consueverunt Pontifices romani, by Pius V, September the 17th, 1569: a string of 5 groups of 10 beads for praying the Aves, separated by 5 bigger beads for praying the Lord’s prayer; on those 5 paternoster beads the mysteries of the biblical Jesus are meditated. Check how Our Lady’s Psalter became into Pius V rosary. The famous 15 mysteries were taken from: a) the rosary of Dominic of Prussia, b) the Franciscan rosary of the 7 Joys, and c) the Servite rosary of 7 Sorrows; These 3 devotions are derived in one way or another of the Psalters of Jesus and Mary. The insertion of the Lord’s prayers are derived from the rosary of Henry of Kalkar, who must have been influenced by the 150 paternoster practice.

Bull Dum ineffabilia meritorum insigna, by Sixtus V, January the 30th, 1586: Now the damage is done. The rosary of Pius V began to be promoted as the rosary of Virgin Mary. The issue about indulgences and rosary comes to surface once again, and in the text are mentioned Urban IV, John XXII, Sixtus IV, Innocent VIII, Alexander VI, Julius II, Leo X, Adrian VI, Clement VII, Paul III, Julius III, Paul IV Pius IV, Pius V and Gregory XIII. With the exception of Urban IV, Sixtus IV, Leo X, Clement VII and Pius V, there’s no first-hand information whether these “popes” knew Our Lady’s Psalter or not. You gotta ask Leo XIII about this.
