Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

    In a series of apparitions to three Portuguese children at Fatima in 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary made many important requests and promises.  The Mother of God pleaded with Catholics to amend their lives, to cease offending God and to frequently and fervently pray the rosary each day.  Our Lady of Fatima also stated that God wished to establish in the world devotion to her Immaculate Heart as a means of restoring true peace through conversion and amendment of life.

“She gave definite instructions as to the form, the character and the purpose of this veneration [to her Immaculate Heart,] both in her apparitions to the three children in the Cova da Iria and in later private apparitions to two of them, Jacinta and Lucia.  Already in her second apparition, our Blessed Mother asked for a special veneration of her Heart, in reparation for the blasphemies and injuries committed against it by ungrateful souls.  To make her appeal more effective, she showed her Heart, wreathed in thorns which wounded it on every side, symbolizing the wounds inflicted upon it by the numberless sins of a heedless world.”

“In the third apparition she showed her little confidants a terrifying vision of Hell and told them that to save sinners from this inferno, God wishes to establish devotion to her Immaculate Heart in the world.  She promised that IF people would do as she asked, many souls would be saved, Russia would be converted and there would be peace.”
(Heart of Our Mother and Queen, pp. 25-26.)  

These promises are conditional.  Unless Our Lady’s conditions are fulfilled it is rash to expect these spiritual and material blessings.  Lucia clearly stated that the condition is that a sufficient number of persons carry out her wishes as expressed at Fatima.
“Russia would spread its errors throughout the entire world, stirring up wars and persecution against the Church.  To prevent this, she asked for the consecration of the world and of Russia to her Immaculate Heart and for a Communion of Reparation on the first Saturday of… five consecutive months.”  (Heart of Our Mother and Queen, p. 26.)  

The Blessed Virgin Mary told Lucia that she was to remain on earth in order to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  After she had entered the convent, Our Lady appeared to Sr. Lucia in 1925 and said, “Look, my daughter, at my heart, encircled with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce it at every instant.  You, at least, try to console me, and make known that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who on the first Saturday of five consecutive months will go to confession, receive Holy Communion, recite the rosary, and keep me company during a quarter of a hour meditating on the mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation.”

Our Blessed Mother spoke of the Communion of reparation on the First Saturday of each month in her third apparition at Fatima in 1917, but the promise was not made until December 10, 1925 to Sr. Lucia of the Seven Dolors.  The reasons for this promise are:
1) To show us the importance of devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary because if it is practiced, Russia will be converted, peace restored to the world and countless souls saved.
2) To encourage us to practice it, especially by receiving Holy Communion in a spirit of reparation, particularly on Saturday, the day dedicated to Our Lady, reciting the Rosary and reflecting on the mysteries in the life of Jesus and Mary.
3) To reassure those who are striving for virtue, but who are sometimes worried about their salvation.

4) To encourage sinners to return to her and to have her present them to the Sacred Heart of Jesus lest they fall into despair.
1. Confession (The confession may be made under the usual conditions of eight days before or after the Holy Communion, provided the person is in the state of grace when he receives Holy Communion.
2. Holy Communion   If a person cannot receive Holy Communion on the First Saturday, he may receive Our Lord on the following day.
3. Rosary (five decades)
4. Holy Communion and Rosary must be made in a spirit of reparation.
5. Meditation for fifteen minutes on one or more of the mysteries of the rosary.
6. Intention of making reparation to God for sin, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The intention once made and not revoked is sufficient.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary represents her life, her love, herself.  From the beginning, Our Lady offered continual acts of conformity to God’s holy will, faith, hope, charity, adoration and thanksgiving to God Who created her.  Her whole life was focused on union with God.  The pure soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary never presented an obstacle to His grace.  God wishes to establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary because it is the complement of devotion to the Sacred Heart.  When we adore the Sacred Heart, we express love and gratitude to our Redeemer.  When we honor the Immaculate Heart, we express our love and gratitude to our spiritual Mother and co-Redemptrix.

Prayer to St. Joseph:
O glorious St. Joseph, thou who, on the word of the angel speaking to thee in the night, put fear aside to take thy Virgin Bride into thy home, show thyself today as my advocate and protector. Guardian of the Christ Child, defend me against every attack of the enemy, preserve me from the dangers that surround me on every side. Stand by when accused, stretch out they hand when I am tempted, comfort me when I am fearful, forsake me not when I am weak.

In thee God has given to me a model of faith, of obedience in adversity, of chastity in the midst of evil, and of hope in the uncertainty of these times, Thou art the terror of demons and the healer of those who fight the spiritual combat. Come, then to my defense. Keep me under thy gracious protection. Amen.

Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Santa Clarita, California, is much like any Catholic church you might have attended before the Second Vatican Council occurred in the 1960's. This Council, supposedly intended to bring about a genuine spiritual renewal in the living of our Faith, inaugurated liturgical changes that broke drastically from the Church's sacred liturgy and traditions of nearly 2,000 years. It is because of these changes and the resultant universal loss of faith among so many bishops, priests, nuns and laity, that Queen of Angels and chapels like this one are drawing more and more interest from concerned Catholics all over the world.

The pastor of Queen of Angels is Father Dominic Radecki, CMRI, a priest belonging to the religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen . The bishop and priests of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) offer only the Tridentine Latin Mass in all the churches and chapels they serve. Remaining faithful to all of the Church's venerable teachings and traditions, Queen of Angels Church reflects the stability and endurance of truths and doctrines that will never change with the times.

The faithful receive Holy Communion on their tongues as they kneel at the communion rail in humble adoration of the Real Presence of God. Ladies wear head coverings and modest clothing out of respect. The reverent silence in the House of God indicates a living faith in Christ Who dwells in the tabernacle.

We have a full schedule of activities at our church. The Sacraments are administered exactly the way they were before Vatican II: Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, the Holy Eucharist, Matrimony and Extreme Unction. Parish organizations who attend Queen of Angels, ranging from basic catechism instruction for the youth and converts to the Faith, to our Confraternity of Christian Mothers. For those who wish to lead a more dedicated spiritual life, we have the Confraternity of Mary Immaculate Queen. We invite you to check out all of our parish activities on this website.

We at Queen of Angels welcome visitors to our parish at anytime of the year, but especially at Christmas and Easter. Although the number of parishioners has outgrown our small church, newcomers are always welcome.

Each of our parishioners adds something unique to the family atmosphere we think is very special here at our church. Come and see it for yourself! If you have not been to a Latin Mass in many years, if you have never been to one at all, you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find at Queen of Angels. You will feel as if you have come home, as indeed you have.

Prayer to the August Queen of Heaven

August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the Angels, who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent's head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe.

Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us.

All ye holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen

O good and tender Mother Thou shalt ever be our love and our hope.

Holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen

Novena of Confidence
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

(for family relations that have fallen away)

O Lord Jesus Christ, to Thy Most Sacred Heart I confide this intention (silently mention here the names you are praying for). Only look upon me, then do what Thy Heart inspires. Let Thy Sacred Heart decide. I count on it. I trust in it. I throw myself on its mercy, Lord Jesus! Thou wilt not fail me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Thy love for me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked Thee for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Thy open, broken Heart, and when the Eternal Father looks upon it, covered with Thy Precious Blood, He will not refuse it.s It will no longer be my prayer but Thine, O Sacred Heart of Jesus. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. Let me never be confounded. Amen.

The time may be delayed, the manner may be unexpected, but the answer is sure to come.

Not a tear of sacred sorrow, not a breath of holy desire poured out to God will ever be lost, but in God's own time and way will be wafted back again in clouds of mercy and fall in showers of blessings on you and on those for whom you pray.
