Take a look at these disgusting photographs. Just take a look at them, please:
Ah, there’s so much to smile about, isn’t there?
Yes, two figures of Antichrist, one of whom believes himself to be the “Petrine Minister” and the other, a petty little caesar who believes himself to be as infallible as a true Successor of Saint Peter, have lots to smile about, don’t they?
After all, both fashion themselves as speaking for “the people,” for “the poor.”
Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro are joined at the hip in their concern for respecting “humanitarian and international law” at the same time as they disregard the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro are, though twenty-five years apart in age, products of a revolutionary rejection of the “past.”
That is, Jorge Mario Bergoglio rejects everything to do with the “pre-conciliar” Catholic Church as being “self-referential,” too “sure of itself,” “too closed-in-on-itself.”
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro rejects everything to do with the actual text of the Constitution of the United States of America and even of the laws passed by the Congress of the United States of America, including the provisions of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, aka ObamaCare, believing that “the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.” (‘I Can Do Whatever I Want’.)
As noted a week ago today, both Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro have what they think is the “experience” to understand the alleged “needs” of the “people,” especially those who are said to be on the margins and the poor, those who have always been served, both supernaturally and temporally, by Holy Mother Church from her very beginning on Pentecost Sunday as the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, descended in tongues of flame upon the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary and the others who were gathered in the same Upper Room in Jersualem where Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had instituted the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Priesthood fifty-three days before.
Indeed, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro made this exact point in a press conference in Rome, Italy, yesterday, Thursday, March 27, 2014, the Feast of Saint John Damascene and the Commemoration of Saints Cosmas and Damian on the Thursday in the Third Week of Lent, after meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Permit me, therefore, to provide some commentary on the long answer that our reigning caesar gave to a reporter of the Cable News Network.
Excerpt Number One:
Q Thank you very much, Mr. President. Grazie, Mr. Prime Minister.
Mr. President, in your meeting with His Holiness, Pope Francis, did he register any objections with you about the contraception coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act or your efforts to advance the rights of gays and lesbians in the United States that worry so many Catholics? And what were his concerns?
And on Russia, with reports of troops building on the Ukrainian border, by taking the military option off the table are you sending a signal to Vladimir Putin that other parts of Ukraine are his for the taking? And why not send multinational peacekeepers to the Ukrainian border as a deterrent?
And to you, Mr. Prime Minister, the President said yesterday that the U.S. would defend any NATO ally. Are you making that same commitment when it comes to Russia?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: That’s a lot of questions there, Jim. (Laughter.) Do the Italian journalists, by the way, do this — these sort of five-part questions? (Laughter.) Same thing?
PRIME MINISTER RENZI: The same multi Italian journalism. (Laughter.)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: All right, let me try to remember this. In terms of the meeting with His Holiness, Pope Francis, we had a wide-ranging discussion. I would say that the largest bulk of the time was discussing two central concerns of his. One is the issue of the poor, the marginalized, those without opportunity, and growing inequality.
And those of us as politicians have the task of trying to come up with policies to address issues, but His Holiness has the capacity to open people’s eyes and make sure they’re seeing that this is an issue. And he’s discussed in the past I think the dangers of indifference or cynicism when it comes to our ability to reach out to those less fortunate or those locked out of opportunity. (Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy in Joint Press Conference.)
In other words, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has the ability as “Pope Francis” to convince Catholics and non-Catholics alike in the United States of America to support his statist schemes of income redistribution in order to make everyone equally poor and equally dependent upon the arbitrary orders of non-elected bureaucrats to control more and more aspects of their daily lives.
Excerpt Number Two:
And then we spent a lot of time talking about the challenges of conflict and how elusive peace is around the world. There was some specific focus on the Middle East where His Holiness has a deep interest in the Israeli-Palestinian issue, but also what’s happening in Syria, what’s happening in Lebanon, and the potential persecution of Christians. And I reaffirmed that it is central to U.S. foreign policy that we protect the interests of religious minorities around the world.
But we also touched on regions like Latin America, where there’s been tremendous progress in many countries, but there’s been less progress in others.
I think the theme that stitched our conversation together was a belief that in politics and in life the quality of empathy, the ability to stand in somebody else’s shoes and to care for someone even if they don’t look like you or talk like you or share your philosophy — that that’s critical. It’s the lack of empathy that makes it very easy for us to plunge into wars. It’s the lack of empathy that allows us to ignore the homeless on the streets. And obviously central to my Christian faith is a belief in treating others as I’d have them treat me. And what’s, I think, created so much love and excitement for His Holiness has been that he seems to live this, and shows that joy continuously. (Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy in Joint Press Conference.)
There is really little else to add to what I wrote a week ago today in Jorge and Barack Have “Experience”.
One can, however, note that the “empathy” spoken of by Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro with reference to himself and the false “pontiff,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, calls to mind the following infamous words of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton: “I feel your pain.” (I do a pretty good impression of Clinton delivering that line repeatedly back in 1992.)
Unfortunately for Bergoglio and Obama/Soetoro, neither man have empathy for those suffering supernaturally from the ravages of unrepentant sins, especially those that cry out to Heaven for vengeance (willful murder, the sin of Sodom, defrauding a widow and withholding the day laborer’s wages). No, it’s all smiles between these two figures of Antichrist as they believe themselves to be possessed of an empathy that is purely narcissistic, thus having nothing to do with either the eternal or temporal good of the very people they seek to “serve.”
In terms of domestic issues, the two issues that we touched on — other than the fact that I invited and urged him to come to the United States, telling him that people would be overjoyed to see him — was immigration reform. And as someone who came from Latin America, I think he is very mindful of the plight of so many immigrants who are wonderful people, working hard, making contributions, many of their children are U.S. citizens, and yet they still live in the shadows, in many cases have been deported and are separated from families. I described to him how I felt that there was still an opportunity for us to make this right and get a law passed. (Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy in Joint Press Conference.)
So much for the Natural Law right of a country to regulate the entry of non-residents and to provide for the legitimate security of its citizens. Obama/Soetoro wants Bergoglio to mouth platitudes about “inclusiveness” and “fairness” without even giving the lip-service that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI gave now and again to national sovereignty in the context of illegal immigration.
Insofar as those who have entered this country illegally and have been here for a long time, I stand by everything I wrote nearly four years ago now in Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 1 and Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 2.
To the Final and Most Important Excerpts from Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus’s Answer:
And he actually did not touch in detail on the Affordable Care Act. In my meeting with his Secretary of State, Cardinal Parolin, we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law. (Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy in Joint Press Conference.)
Rather Extended Commentary:
Well, there you have it.
As predicted, Jorge Mario Bergoglio did not “touch in detail” on the draconian provisions of ObamaCare, which is opposed on its every face to the Natural Law principle of Subsidiarity and even to the very plain text of the Constitution of the United States of America for which our caesar has such contempt. (See ObamaDeathCare.)
The man masquerading as “Pope Francis” left it up to his Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, who only briefly raised the issue of ObamaCare’s mandated health insurance coverage for “family planning services,” including chemical abortifacients, the surgical execution of the innocent preborn and sterilization as though this coverage was a relatively minor matter. There is a reason for this: Bergoglio and Parolin believe it such coverage to be a minor matter as they are more concerned about supporting access to “universal health care,” which is nothing other than a surrender to the government-employed merchants of death what has belonged up to this point to their like number in the private sector. One cannot be “too obsessed” about such matters.
Remember, Piero Parolin has never met a statist that he has not tried to appease.
Pietro Parolin played a major role in the sellout of the underground Church in Red China to the so-called Chinese Patriotic Association as he engaged in negotiations with the brutal, murderous Communist dictators in the world’s most populous nation, which paved the way for his “negotiations” with Communist butchers headquartered in Hanoi, Vietnam, once a stronghold of Catholicism during the French colonial rule over Indochina.
The murderous Ho Chi Minh, the founder of the Viet Minh guerilla army that fought, successively, the Japanese occupiers of Indochina during World War II and the French colonial forces under the fall of Dien Bien Phu on May 7, 1954, who was recently praised by Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro (see Obama Says Vietnamese Dictator Inspired by Founding Fathers), initiated a brutal campaign against Catholics in Vietnam that killed countless thousands of them and sent over 450,000 of our co-religionists to the protection found in the newly established Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) below the Seventeenth Parallel.
Ah, that is before the conciliar revolutionaries began to show forth their “respect” for errors that, according to Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII, just kind of go away all on their own, and Paul the Sick’s Ostpolitik was implemented.
Never mind the fact that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s Letter to Bishops, Priests, Consecrated Persons and Lay Faithful of Red China, June 30, 2007, represented a sellout of the long-suffering Catholics in the underground Church in China that has meet met with a worsening of their conditions as a result of the intransigent hatred of the murderous thugs in Beijing and elsewhere throughout the country (see Red China Still A Workshop For The New Ecclesiology).
No, Pietro Parolin, who worked behind the scenes to make Ratzinger/Benedict’s June 30, 2007, letter a reality, helped to organize a “musical concert” in the Vatican to showcase performers from Red China even in the midst of the continued sufferings of the faithful Catholics in that country:
Remember ping-pong diplomacy, the exchange of ping-pong players between the United States and communist China in the 1970s that was one of the first steps that led to a thaw in relations between the two countries? If the Vatican had a ping-pong team, perhaps China would have considered sending their squad to the walled city in Rome for a match.
But the Vatican does not have a ping-pong team, as far as we know. So, the next best thing appears to be music. This week, Vatican Radio made a surprise announcement on its daily 2 p.m. bulletin. The China Philharmonic Orchestra of Beijing and the Shanghai Opera House Chorus will perform Mozart’s Requiem for Pope Benedict on May 7 in the Vatican’s audience hall, adding a stop to its already scheduled European tour.
As one diplomat said, “this could not have happened without the Beijing government approving it.” Given the fact that relations between the Vatican and Beijing have been scratchy to say the least, one can only wonder if this is the start of a mating game. It could lead to diplomatic relations and China’s recognition of the pope as leader of all Catholics in the world, including Chinese Catholics, many of whom have been forced to join the state-backed Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association.
Something seemed afoot in the last few months. In November, Monsignor Pietro Parolin, undersecretary for relations with states, was reported to have made a secret visit to China. The Vatican never denied the reports. In March, a Chinese delegation secretly had talks in the Vatican, sources confirmed.
One precedent for baton diplomacy that comes to mind is a similar event that happened in the Vatican on February 20, 1988 when the now mostly-forgotten Cold War still existed.
The then-Soviet Union’s Red Army Choir performed for Pope John Paul, singing, of all things, Ave Maria. It, too, was a shocker when it was announced. But on Dec 1, 1989, Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev made his historic visit to the Vatican, turning relations between the Kremlin and the Vatican on their head after some 70 years of mutual distrust. Relations between Russia and the Vatican were established in 1990 and the rest, as they say, is history.
So, if music be the food of diplomacy, play on. (Can China and the Vatican make beautiful music together?)
“Archbishop” Pietro Parolin played the role of “diplomat” when serving as the conciliar church’s nuncio in Venezuela, treating the Marxist tyrant Hugo Chavez with great respect as he attempted to tamp down overt criticism of the now-deceased thug on the part of some of the conciliar “bishops” in Venezuela.
Parolin gave an interview last year to the “ultra-progressive” National Catholic Reporter wherein he stated his support for “liberation theology, rejecting most gratuitously, of course, any Marxist models, while downplaying he scandal of perverted clergy in his perverted and corrupted conciliar church. (See (Parolin’s last interview before taking top Vatican job.)
All of this is prelude to explaining that Pietro Parolin is a fellow-traveler of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s, making it very reasonable that he would mention ObamaDeathCare only “briefly” with him yesterday.
It was five years ago, shortly into Obama/Soetoro’s first time as our caesar, that Parolin came to the rescue of L’Osservatore Romano editor Gian Maria Van after the latter had written that the American president was not “pro-abortion,” just “pro-choice”:
“It is true we don’t share many views with the present administration on bioethical issues, but at the same time the traditional policy of the Holy See is to try to always have open channels, to follow a policy of dialogue through which you can tell people you don’t agree on certain issues, but at the same time keep on with a dialogue.”
Those are the words of Msgr. Pietro Parolin, the Holy See’s Undersecretary for Relations with States and one of the Vatican’s leading diplomats.
Here is the complete text of my interview yesterday with Msgr. Parolin, in which he also discusses Pope Benedict XVI’s recent trip to the Holy Land. The interview will be published in the next issue of the Register.
Q. There’s been some confusion about the mixed signals coming out of the Vatican regarding President Obama — that while U.S. bishops have strongly criticized his position on life issues, L’Osservatore Romano, for example, has been offering comparatively positive assessments of the administration. Why is this?
Msgr. Pietro Parolin: It’s very simple. It is true we don’t share many views with the present administration on bioethical issues, but at the same time the traditional policy of the Holy See is to try to always have open channels, to follow a policy of dialogue through which you can tell people you don’t agree on certain issues, but at the same time keep on with a dialogue. So this — in a few words — is the policy of the Holy See.
Q. So bishops need to focus more on these internal issues while the Vatican is more interested on international, foreign policy issues?
No, I wouldn’t say we’re not concerned about these decisions that have been taken by the administration. But this does not prevent us from having a dialogue with the administration.
Is this the reason for the generally positive comments from L’Osservatore Romano on the administration?
I don’t know because I was absent at that time, I was in Jerusalem when L’Osservatore Romano wrote that article. (Vatican Clarifies Obama Stance.)
First of all, Gian Maria Van’s assertion five years ago that Obama/Soetoro is not a pro-abortion president was itself remarkable.
I mean, what at does it take make a public official be pro-abortion?
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro supports the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973. He had signed an Executive Order to restore full funding for the surgical assassination of children under all conditions by means of international “family planning” agencies outside of the United States of America with American taxpayers’ dollars almost as soon as he took office in 2009. Little babies have been killed as a result of that Executive Order, and this is to say nothing of United States Attorney General Eric Holder’s aggressive war against pro-life Americans and of the pro-abortion ObamaCare, whose implementation is being supervised by a pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholic, United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro is not pro-abortion?
No rational, sane Catholic can make such a statement, no less one who has been chosen by conciliar officials to be the editor of their semi-official newspaper.
As to the Pietro Parolin himself, what was your comment that “It is true we don’t share many views with the present administration on bioethical issues, but at the same time the traditional policy of the Holy See is to try to always have open channels, to follow a policy of dialogue through which you can tell people you don’t agree on certain issues, but at the same time keep on with a dialogue” supposed to have meant?
Excuse me, “Archbishop” Parolin?
The conciliar Vatican does not “share many views with the present administration on bioethical issues”?
The direct, intentional taking of innocent preborn life in a mother’s womb, whether by surgical or chemical means, is a matter of God’s Law, engraved in the human heart by means of the Natural Law and explicated clearly by Him to us in the Fifth Commandment, which, along with each of His Commandments. It is not a “view” over which people of “good will” can have legitimate disagreements.
The madness of conciliarism, replete with its insanity of “dialogue” and respect for errors and false religions, is a long, long way from the clarity provided us by Pope Pius XI in Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930:
“Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother’s womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven.” (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
This is the language of the Catholic Church, not “dialogue” and “toleration.” How many more babies must be killed for the conciliar revolutionaries to realize that their own soul-killing liturgies and false doctrines have made it more possible for men such as Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro to rise to political prominence and to have the enthusiastic support of large numbers of Catholics? The apostasy of the conciliar ethos does indeed have consequences.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has, of course, granted numerous photograph opportunities (“photo-ops”) to one pro-abortion, pro-perversity world leader after another. Bergoglio has met with Argentine President Christine Kirchner, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Uruguayan President Jose Alberto Mujica Cordano, an atheist, and the pro-abortion President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, who is a former conciliar “bishop,” and French President Francois Hollande, implying that the “better” and the more “just” world can be built upon the blood of the innocent preborn. Active support given to the execution of the innocent preborn is no impediment to receiving plaudits from Jorge Mario Bergoglio as a “champion” of “human rights” as long as they support the “poor.”
As has been noted on this site so many times in the past thirteen and one-half months, Bergoglio defines this alleged “support for the poor” almost exclusively by the creation and increase of statist schemes of economic redistribution, funded by the confiscatory taxing power of the civil state, and massive programs of economic regulation that decrease legitimate personal liberties and reward donors responsible for funding the campaigns of the prevailing statists. This is what constitutes “justice” in the minds of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Pietro Parolin, et al.
Bergoglio and Parolin respect Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro. They only have a few differences with him on those “bioethical issues,” which must be couched in the very framework of “religious freedom” that made Obama/Soetoro’s election inevitable. Indeed, as was noted a short time ago on this site, Obama/Soetoro is the end product of Americanism.
Believe in “religious freedom”?
Be prepared to suffer more and more under the likes of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, his pro-abortion, pro-perversity Secretary of State, John F. Kerry, who remains in perfectly good standing in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and who was, of course, present in the Vatican yesterday, Kathleen Sebelius, the pro-abortion and pro-perversity “Catholic” who is the Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and the nefarious no-goodnik named Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States of America.
To the final excerpt from Obama/Soetoro’s answer yesterday:
And I explained to him that most religious organizations are entirely exempt. Religiously affiliated hospitals or universities or NGOs simply have to attest that they have a religious objection, in which case they are not required to provide contraception, although employees of theirs who choose are able to obtain it through the insurance company.
And I pledged to continue to dialogue with the U.S. Conference of Bishops to make sure that we can strike the right balance, making sure that not only everybody has health care but families, and women in particular, are able to enjoy the kind of health care coverage that the AC offers, but that religious freedom is still observed. (Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy in Joint Press Conference.)
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro has been trying to sell this lie for over five years now. I will dispense with it as quickly as I can before turning a brief bit of attention to the horrific statement that was released by the Press Office of the Holy See in conciliar captivity.
The “attestation” that Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s administration wants the administrators of formerly Catholic hospitals, most of which are just as much in the business of killing the innocent (“brain death,” “vital organ donation,” cessation of the provision of nutrition and hydration and, yes, even direct, intentional surgical abortion on many occasions), is unjust on its very face as it cedes to the civil government the right to mandate such coverage that binds no human being in the United States of America as it is violation of the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law an the Natural Law. Thus it is that the “magnanimity” of caesar’s original so-called “exemption” to churches, as opposed to church-run institutions, far from being a sign of his “generosity,” was and remains a hubristic exercise in personal self-congratulations for granting an exception to mandate that he had no authority to impose upon any person or institution, religious or otherwise.
To quote the imitable Frank Kelly, from whom I have not heard in about five years now, Barack Hussein Obama is a “swineherd.” Well, whether or not Mr. Kelly would agree with me is unclear, however I would add as follows: So is Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
“Father” Federico Lombardi, S.J., issued the following brief statement after the two figures of Antichrist had concluded their fifty-two minute smiling session in the Clementine Hall in the Apostolic Palace within the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River:
This morning, 27 March 2014, the Hon. Barack H. Obama, President of the United States of America, was received in audience by His Holiness Pope Francis, after which he met with His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State, and Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, Secretary for Relations with States.
During the cordial meetings, views were exchanged on some current international themes and it was hoped that, in areas of conflict, there would be respect for humanitarian and international law and a negotiated solution between the parties involved. In the context of bilateral relations and cooperation between Church and State, there was a discussion on questions of particular relevance for the Church in that country, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection, as well as the issue of immigration reform. Finally, the common commitment to the eradication of trafficking of human persons in the world was stated. (Spinmeister issues statement on meeting of Jorge and Barack.)
Respect for humanitarian and international law?
No respect for the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
No respect for the immutable rights of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to reign as King over men and their nations.
Everything is cordial as photo-ops with broad smiles and “common ground” without regard for truth and error are offered to hideous pro-death, pro-perversity statists even though thousand innocent babies are put to death under the cover of the civil law each day in the United States of America alone and as countless hundreds of thousands are others are killed by means of abortifacient contraceptives.
Everything is all cordial as photo-ops with broad smiles are offered to those who want to make sure that the pestilence known as “gay marriage” makes itself Irreversible By Means Merely Human.
Unless Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Barack Hussein Obama repent of their crimes before God and men and convert to the Catholic Faith before they die, they will find that their broad smiles wiped from their faces as they burn in the very depths and hottest regions of Hell for all eternity, which is why we must pray fervently for their conversion as no believing Catholic wants any person to spend all eternity in the flames of Hell as he is deprived of the very purpose of his existence: the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven.
Indeed, a believing Catholic is very much aware that his own sins deserve to punished in Hell many times over. It is only by the ineffable mercy of the Divine Redeemer that we have any hope of being saved by cooperating with the graces that He won for us by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. A believing Catholic makes good use of the holy season of Lent to reanimate and/or to intensify his practices of prayer, mortification and almsgiving as he seeks to make reparation for his sins by offering up to the throne of the Most Blessed Trinity as the consecrated slave of Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary whatever merit he might earn as a result.
The following prayer, which was composed by Saint Alphonsus de Liguori and is prayed each week by those of us who pray the Mother of Perpetual Help Novena, makes this very clear:
Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin and my Mother, Mary, * to thee Who art the Mother of my Lord, the Queen of the world, * the Advocate, the Hope, and the Refuge of sinners, * I have recourse today, * I who am the most miserable of all. * I render thee my most humble homage, O Great Queen, * and I thank thee for all the graces * thou has obtained for me until now, * and in particular for having saved me from hell which I have so often deserved. * I love thee, O most Amiable Lady; and for the love which I bear thee, * I promise to serve thee always * and to do all in my power to make others also love thee. * I place in thee all my hopes * and I confide my salvation to thy care. * O Mother of Mercy. * And since thou art so powerful with God, * deliver me from all temptations, * or, rather, obtain for me the strength to triumph over them until death. * Of thee I ask a perfect love for Jesus Christ; * through thee I hope to die a good death. * O my Mother, * by the love which thou bearest to God, * I beseech thee to help me at all times * but especially at the last moment of my life. * Leave me not, I beseech thee, * until thou seest me safe in heaven, * blessing thee and singing thy mercies for all eternity. So I hope, so may it be. * Amen.
