“Somebody who says his Rosary alone only gains the merit of one Rosary, but if he says it together with thirty other people he gains the merit of thirty Rosaries. This is the law of public prayer. How profitable, how advantageous this is!”

Closing Prayer to Our Lady of America
Written at the behest of Our Lady
October 5, 1956
O Immaculate Mother, Queen of our Country, open our hearts, our homes, and our Land to the coming of Jesus, your Divine Son. With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady, so pure and so bright with the radiance of God’s light shining in and about you. Be our Leader against the powers of evil set upon wresting the world of souls, redeemed at such a great cost by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself, in union with Him, from that same Savior, Who loves us with infinite charity.
We gather about you, O chaste and holy Mother, Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land, determined to fight under your banner of holy purity against the wickedness that would make all the world an abyss of evil, without God and without your loving maternal care.
We consecrate our hearts, our homes, our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen, that the kingdom of your Son, our Redeemer and our God, may be firmly established in us.
We ask no special sign of you, sweet Mother, for we believe in your great love for us, and we place in you our entire confidence. We promise to honor you by faith, love, and the purity of our lives according to your desire.
Reign over us, then, O Virgin Immaculate, with your Son Jesus Christ. May His Divine Heart and your most chaste Heart be ever enthroned and glorified among us. Use us, your children of America, as your instruments in bringing peace among men and nations. Work your miracles of grace in us, so that we may be a glory to the Blessed Trinity, Who created, redeemed, and sanctifies us.
May your valiant Spouse, St. Joseph, with the holy Angels and Saints, assist you and us in “renewing the face of the earth.” Then when our work is over, come, Holy Immaculate Mother, and as our Victorious Queen, lead us to the eternal kingdom, where your Son reigns forever as King. Amen (200 days)

Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray.
And do thou oh prince of the heavenly hosts,
By the power of God,
Cast into hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits,
Who prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls.
*(Pope Sixtus IV, in 1475, was the first to endow the recitation of the Angelus at noon with an indulgence. This indulgence was confirmed and extended by Pope Leo X in 1517 to whoever recited it in the morning, at noon, and in the evening, and Pope Pius XI (1922-1939) seems to have been the last one to grant an indulgence.)
Prayer of the Lady of All Nations
To prepare the world for the
proclamation of the 5th Marian Dogma
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your Spirit over the earth.
Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all Nations,
that they may be preserved from degeneration, disasters and war.
May the Lady of all Nations, Mary,
Co-Redemptrix, and Mediatrix,
be our Advocate. Amen
“My daughter, the motive is simple: there are five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary: ( 1) the blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception, (2) against her virginity, (3) against the Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept her as the Mother of all mankind, (4) those who try publicly to implant in the children’s hearts indifference, contempt, and even hatred against this Immaculate Mother, and (5) those who insult her directly in her sacred images.”
“Here, my daughter, is the reason why the Immaculate Heart of Mary [My Mother] causes Me to ask for this little act of reparation and due to it move My mercy to forgive those souls who had the misfortune of offending her. As for you, try without ceasing, with all your prayers and sacrifices, to move Me into mercifulness toward those poor souls.”
– Our Savior to Sister Lucia of Fatima, 1930
