Fr Ortiz invites all the Resistance members to join a campaign of prayers
There is too much talk in the Resistance media and too little call to prayer…
Our combat is, as St Paul remarks, “not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” (Eph. 6:12)
I am convinced that behind the worsening of the situation in the world, the aggravation of the crisis in the Church, and the problems within the Resistance (in particular with the ‘Morangate’, the ‘Pablo Hernandez’ case, etc.), there is a renewed action of the Devil, sowing discord in the hearts and confusion in the minds.
We cannot remain idle, so we must have recourse to EVERY means given by God in these troubled times.
Specifically I would like to recommend to all our confreres and faithful:
1) To say daily, at least until Pentecost, the long Exorcism of Leo XIII. The particular circumstances surrounding its composition and the obligation made by Leo XIII to say a shorter version after every Mass, should convince us that God wants us to use frequently this powerful instrument against Satan and all the demons.
This prayer is not restricted only to the Priests. When said by a layman, it should be done in private and not using the lines and the blessings reserved for the priest.
It should be said with preference in Latin, but also is permitted in the vernacular (see the attached text)
2) To add to our daily Rosary, at the end of each decade, the shorter Exorcism of St Michael (500 days of indulgences).
3) To practice some fasting, as Our Lord recommends it especially against the power of the Devil: “This kind [of devil] can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” (Mk 9:29)
If we have Faith and Confidence in God, it will not be very long before seeing the fruits of our prayers.
God bless you.
Fr. J.C. Ortiz
