13 Our Fathers in honor of St. Francis of Paola

E78217FB-EC39-4329-BF7D-D9EBFD2B9EA8

It is piously believed that St. Francis of Paola recited 13 Our Fathers and Hail Marys in honor of Our Lord and His Apostles. A most worthy endeavor for us to take up. The following is from The Racolta:

Pope Clement XII., in the Brief Coelestium munerum dispensatio of Dec. 2, 1738, granted –

i. A plenary indulgence to all the faithful who, upon thirteen Fridays continuously preceding the Feast of St. Francis of Paola (April 2), or at any other time of the year, shall, in honour of this Saint, being truly penitent, visit, after Confession and Communion, a church of the Minims, commonly called the Paolotti, either already erected or hereafter to be erected, and pray there for our Holy Mother Church; this Indulgence may be gained on any one of the said Fridays; and

ii. An indulgence of seven years and seven quarantines on all other Fridays.

Moreover, wherever there are not churches of the above named order, or where they are distant at least a mile from a person’s own dwelling, the same Clement XII. granted in these two cases, by a Brief Nuper editae of March 20, 1739, the same indulgences to the faithful as are mentioned above, conditional of course upon their previous Confession and Communion. In this Brief permission is given to visit any other church whatsoever dedicated to God in honour of St. Francis of Paola, or any altar existing in any church where there is a picture of this glorious Saint; and if none of these conditions can be complied with, the visit may be made to their own parish church.

This devotion originated with St. Francis himself, who practised it in honour of our Lord Jesus Christ and His twelve Apostles with this intent, on each of the thirteen Fridays he used to recite thirteen Pater noster’s and as many Ave Maria’s, and this devotion he promulgated by word of mouth and by letter to his own devout followers, as an efficacious means of obtaining from God the graces they desired, provided they were for the greater good of their souls.

Since the death of the Saint, which took place April 2, 1507, the day on which Good Friday fell in that year, this devotion has always been practised by the faithful throughout the whole Catholic world in honour of the holy Founder; and so it came at last to be approved by the said Clement XII., who granted the Indulgences above named, in order to animate good Christians to adopt it.

The great Sign of Revelation is appearing in the heavens

“And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.”  ~Revelation 12:1-2

A little known astronomical event of great importance began on November 20, 2016. Jupiter “the King planet” enters the body of the constellation Virgo (the virgin). Jupiter spends the next 9 ½ months within the “womb” of the constellation, Virgo, the time a baby spends in its mother’s womb. Jupiter will exit Virgo on September 23 of this year. At this time, the sun will be aligned with Virgo, alluding to the “Woman clothed with the sun” the moon will literally be beneath her feet. Twelve stars will be above her head, comprised of the nine stars of the constellation Leo, in addition to the planets Mercury, Venus & Mars.

This has never happened before in the history of mankind. Could this be the sign of Revelation? This is happening at a crucial year, being the centennial of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, the Woman with power over the heavens & the earth.

The Son of God foretold…

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves…”   ~Luke 21:25
