Heaven in Three Hail Marys, 2020

 

A note for readers who have asked why I have not posted on the ongoing drama of the two popes – i.e., what is wrong, am a sick again, and what do I think of this or that post from various blogs. First, I do not read those blogs, no matter how many times you send them to my inbox, for I am practicing what I “preach” and making reparation. Our Lord Jesus Christ is offended and has begun chastising us. We have been given a brief period of mercy, a last chance for reparation, before the culmination. A period of unimaginable misery is upon us and many will find themselves caught up in hell on earth.

Why should you listen to me? As someone challenged, “What gives you the right to tell me to repent?, who do you think you are?”  Certainly, I am not worthy, me, least of all! – that you should listen to me, but I have passed on to you as faithfully as I am able to do, the words of Our Lord, of Our Blessed Mother, and of the saints who are approved by the true magisterium. Please do not be led astray! Hold fast to the truth, hold fast to our Queen and Mother, who will not leave us orphans.

St. Alphonsus of Liguori assures us that: “A devout servant of Mary shall never perish.” That is why it is regrettable  to see Catholics  today fall away from true devotion to our Blessed Mother. One simple but very effective little devotion to Our Lady is the venerable old practice of the Three Hail Marys. This is a long-established practice which has been promoted by some of the greatest saints, such as St. Anthony, St. Mechtilde, St. Gertrude, St. Leonard of Port Maurice and was blessed by Pope St. Pius X.

In brief, the devotion consists of the following:

The practice (of the Three Hail Marys) was revealed to St. Mechtilde (13th century) while she was beseeching Our Blessed Mother to assist her in her hour of death. Our Lady appeared to her and said: “I will, certainly. But I also want you to say three special Hail Marys to me every day.

“The first Hail Mary will be in honor of God the Father, Whose omnipotence raised my soul so high above every other creature that after God I have the greatest power in heaven and on earth. In the hour of your death I will use that power of God the Father to keep any hostile power far from you.

“The second Hail Mary will be said in honor of the Son of God Who communicated His inscrutable wisdom to me. In the hour of your death I will fill your soul with the light of that wisdom so that all the darkness of ignorance and error will be dispelled.

“The third Hail Mary will be in honor of God the Holy Ghost Who filled my soul with the sweetness of His love and tenderness and mercy. In your last hour I will then change the bitterness of death into divine sweetness and delight.”

The above is said morning and night and accompanied by the invocation at the end: for the morning: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this day.” For the evening: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this night.”

That quote is from the site: Our Lady of the Rosary Library, the link is in the sidebar. They have an informative  article with more information and also sell the prayer cards for a very modest amount. Here is a direct link to the article on the Three Hail Marys: LINK.

The devotion I learned is slightly different:

Hail Mary, most pure and perfect daughter of God the Father, by His omnipotence, rescue me from satan at the hour of my death. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Hail Mary, most pure and perfect Mother of God the Son, by His infinite wisdom, dispel the darkness in my soul that I might fully repent of all my sins at the hour of my death. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Hail Mary, most pure and perfect Spouse of God the Holy Ghost, by His infinite mercy and love, embrace my soul at the hour of my death that I may die of love for thee. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Conclusion:
In the morning: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin this day.”
In the evening: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin this night.”

For some time now, I have been using the Three Hail Marys to offer reparation to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart throughout the day, by simply praying  especially whenever I must be in the midst of people, “Immaculate Heart of Mary, I love thee for all who do not love thee. Hail Mary, etc.”

Another version I pray often is, “Immaculate Heart of Mary, make perfect my will, that I may love and serve Our Lord as you, dear Mother.” At times, I shorten these brief prayers, since I say them so often and she knows my heart, but they do help keep one’s focus. When we are in the midst of crowds today, it is good to bear in mind that most of the people around you are not at all in any state of grace – they need our prayers! These small prayers may do much good, so I offer them to you with love.

Thank you for reading. I pray for you always!

Please, Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!

Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey:  First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
. St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
. St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

    Thank you for the reminder of this good devotion. I try to always say it every morning, but need to add the little intentions, etc. (save my soul, etc) That is a good idea to say it in the midst of crowds (grocery shopping, etc) Whenever I find myself upset or despairing over this, that or the other situation at home or in the church, I’ve been trying to immediately call on Our Heavenly Mother with an “Ave” or her “Memorare.”

  2. Donna says:

    Thank you for all you’re doing to help save souls. I was so lost but, by the Holy Spirit’s guidance, I found your blog and a very devout son of Mary about a year ago. Both of you have given me a True devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
    What you do is not easy, unappreciated and ridiculed by many. But I am truly grateful. Jesus and Mary have such a devoted child in you. You’re in my prayers always. Please keep me in yours.
    Again, thank you!

    Por el poder que Dios Padre te ha concedido. Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in ora mortis nostrae. Amen. Por tu Inmaculada Concepcion, oh! Maria Santisima, haz mi cuerpo puro y mi alma santa.

    Por la sabiduria que Dios Hijo te ha concedido. Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.

    Thank you for sharing this, especially the three hail mary devotion. I got in the habit several years ago of saying three hail mary’s anytime temptation came on me a few years back. Just those three little prayers would usually be enough to drive away even the worst of temptations at a time when I was immersed in habitual sin. If only people knew how much help there was waiting in the sacraments, with Our Lady, the old practices of the Church. I hope your doing well. God bless, Eric
