Pentecost Prayer

The Novena for Pentecost begins on Friday, May 22. The following prayer is recommended. Saturday, May 30 is the Vigil Pentecost. It is a day of fast and partial absitence in preparation for the feast of Pentecost. All baptized Catholics seven years and older may eat meat only once, at the principal meal. Those between the ages 21 and 59 are also bound to observe the Chruch laws regarding fasting.

O Holy Ghost, Soul of my soul, I adore Thee, I love Thee, I praise Thee, I thank Thee. Enlighten, guide, strengthen, and console me. Inspire me what I ought to do, and command me to do it. I promise to be submissive in everything that Thou permit to happen to me; only show me Thy holy will, and fill me with Thy grace and Thy love to refuse Thee nothing, no matter how difficult it may be. I abandon myself entirely to Thee through Mary. Strengthen my will to carry out all my resolutions, and give me the grace of perseverance. Teach me how to pray. Grant me the grace to pray with unlimited confidence of being heard, according to God's holy will.
Give me true humility of heart. Increase and strengthen my faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Make me an ardent adorer and lover of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Strengthen my love and confidence in our Blessed Mother. Holy Ghost, I offer Thee the loving Heart of Jesus to repair for all my offenses and negligences. ‚Äč
I consecrate myself unreservedly to Thee, through Mary, Thy Immaculate Spouse. I place all my trust in Thee. Help me to make Thee better known and loved throughout the world. Give me an intense zeal for souls, to console Jesus. Amen.

The Signs of the Times
During the Passion of Christ it seemed as if the powers of darkness had triumphed. Once again it seems that their evil plans have succeeded as they usher in the age of Antichrist. It is likely that things will get worse, not better. What we are witnessing is the culmination of the troubles instigated by Satan and permitted by God as a chastisement for our sins. We must get our immortal soul in order. We need to be prepared for what will soon face us. We need to have a strong faith.

Catholics should go to confession frequently, not just once a month or once a year. Frequent confession and Holy Communion are very important Due to the fact that we are living in perilous times and are continually assaulted by evil forces, it is morally impossible to save our souls without a solid prayer life. We must spend sufficient time each day in prayer, especially by praying the rosary, in order to strengthen ourselves against temptation, for protection, and to obtain the grace of final perseverance. People should be praying all the time by turning their minds and hearts to God throughout the day. The whole family needs to pray the rosary every single day.

Sr. Lucia of Fatima has written, "The devil does all in his power to distract us and to take us away from the love of prayer." Er. Frcie, O Segredo de Falima p. s04-508) "We must recite the Rosary every day. This is the prayer that Our Lady recommended the most, as if to arm us in advance, foreseeing these days of diabolical campaign. The devil knows Hence he leads his campaign against it to destroy us." (Uma Viuda p. 380-382) that we must save ourselves through prayer. Bach soul must fight its own spiritual battles during life. The path to Heaven is narrow and strewn vith difficulties. Although the way to Heaven is not easy, we should not lose heart. We will btain the strength and willpower required to remain faithful to God through prayer, the sacraments and staying close to our Blessed Mother.

Each soul must fight its own spiritual battles during life. The path to Heaven is narrow and strewn with dificulties. Although the way to Heaven is not easy, we should not lose heart. We will obtain the strength and willpower required to remain faithful to God through prayer, the sacraments and staying close to our Blessed Mother.

Watch and pray; be on guard. St. Peter presumed on his own strength and denied Christ. We will also be tested and we are so weak. God will give us strength to persevere if we ask Him because He loves us so much. He is always there, caring for us with His Divine Providence. Despite the evil surrounding us, we will persevere in our faith and save our soul if we pray and avoid sin. If we remain obstinate in sin, we are in imminent danger of losing our souls for eternity. From the signs of the times, it is evident that we are witnessing the dawning of the age of Antichrist. All the signs that foretell the coming of Antichrist have been fulfilled, leaving only those that occur during his time. Prior to the coming of Antichrist, the gospel was to be preached throughout the world. A Catholic geography book written in 1960 recorded that there were Catholics in every country in the worid except one-Afghanistan. In order to pave the way for Antichrist, there was to be a great apostasy or falling away from the faith. This has already occurred with the Second Vatican Council and its false popes.

In his book, The Return of the King., Henry Coleridge has written, "In the latter days of the world's history, Satan will be allowed greater freedom than before, partly, we may suppose, to test to the utmost the spiritual powers of the Church and her children, that the glory of Our Lord may be greater in their final victory, partly because of the exceeding wickedness of... the] apostate world which shall deserve as its immediate chastisement to be handed over to all the seductions of the powers of evil." (a. 182) This will culminate in the reign of Antichrist as described by St. Paul.

He clearly stated that Antichrist is a definite individual who will declare himself to be the Messias. Our Lord foretold this when He said, "I am come in the name of My Father, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive."

The coming of Antichrist will begin the final battle between the Church and the powers of Hell, between the Woman, the Blessed Virgin Mary and the serpent, Satan. "It shall be the complete realization of the prophecy of Genesis: 'I will put enmities between thee and the woman and thy seed and her seed.. [She shall crush thy head.]' The seed of the serpent is Antichrist and his followers; the seed of Mary, the woman, is Jesus Christ and His faithful disciples... Antichrist will follow in the footsteps of his master [Satan] by employing every form of sin and error to seduce the faithful." (Rex. E. Syfvester Bery, The Apocalypse of S. John p. 131.) The Blessed Virgin Mary assured us at Fatima that in the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph. Our Lady will play an important role during the great conflict between the Church and Satan. She is deseribed in the Apocalypse as the Woman crowned with twelve stars. "Antichrist will perform great wonders to deceive the people and lead them to accept him as the true Messias." emy, 132) Those who adore Antichrist because of his false miracles will thereby adore Satan who gives him the power to perform them. Our Lord forewamed us of these false miracles when He said, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect." (Mat. 24:24)

Antichrist will reward his followers with material prosperity and power. During his reign of three and one-half years, he will exercise physical and spiritual authority. Although at first victorious, Antichrist will be overcome and sent to Hell. Despite the sufferings and bitter persecution the faithful must endure, they should suffer patiently and with great confidence in God because He will have the ultimate victory.

The most well-known exorcism that ever occurred in the United States took place in Earling, lowa in 1928. The incident is recorded in the book, Begone Satan. The author stated, "On one occasion, when Fr. Theophilus insisted that the devil should depart and return to Hell, the devil replied in a growling tone: "How can you banish me to Hell? I must be free to prepare the way for Antichrist." And again he spoke out of the possessed woman: "We know a lot. We read the signs of the times. This is the last century [speaking about the 20h century.] When people will write the year 2000 the end will be at hand." Rev. Celestine Kapsner, O.S.B., p. 41)

This corresponds with the words of Anna Catherine Emmerick, " I heard that Lucifer, if I am not mistaken, would again be freed for a time about fifty or sixty years before the year 2000 A.D. A number of other devils would be released somewhat earlier as a punishment and source of temptation to sinful human beings." (Begone Satan, 41.)

When questioned about the content of the Third Secret of Fatima, Sr. Lucia replied, "It is in the Gospel and the Apocalypse. Read them." (Frere Michel de la Sainte Trinite, The Whole Truth Abou Fatima: The Third Secret P. 78.) "We even know that [Sr.] Lucy one day indicated chapters 8-13 of the Apocalypse." (de la Trinite, 3) What topics are discussed in these chapters? Chapter 8 relates the vicissitudes of the Church.

In his book written in 1921, The Apocalypse of St. John, Fr. Berry stated, "Despite the preaching of the gospel [throughout the world,] some great nation, [Russia or China?] will bring war and bloodshed upon a large portion of mankind... [There will also be] great persecutions against the Church." (Ehwood Bery, The Apocalypse ofSt. Johm, p. 91.)

In Satan's final struggle against Christ, he will marshall all forms of sin and error against the Church, including Modenism, "the synthesis of heresies." Fr. Berry has writen that the Apocalypse foretold the rise of Modernism, "a striking image of unfaith ful bishops and priests who fall from the firmament of the Church where Christ has placed them to enlighten and direct the world.

Unfortunately, [a great number of Catholics] drink from these poisoned streams of false doctrine and so perish." (Bery, 92) Many reject the true faith, while others abandon it. By false teachings and [bad] example they poison the very sources of doctrine.

In chapters 9 and following in the Apocalypse we read about preparation for the reign of Antichrist when heresy shall succeed for a time and "true Catholic doctrine will be obscured and even lost to many people." (Bery, 99,) The true Church will be in eclipse. Satan's followers on earth are the leaders of heresy and persecution. Nations, individuals and secret societies will unite in attacking the Church with cunning ferocity, boldness and strength. "The chastisements sent upon the world will] increase with the growth of iniquity and the approach of Antichrist." (Bery, 104) As Catholic truth is obscured, faith weakens, followed by moral depravity, immorality and violence. The duration of Antichrist's persecution against the Church will be three and one-half years. Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori stated that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be suspended on earth during this period. At the beginning of this terrible persecution, God will send Henoch and Elias to guide the Church and preach penance. They "shall appear among men as apostles of the Church and adversaries of Antichrist" (Bemy, 113)

Satan has already destroyed the power of the Papacy. "He will then attack the Church from without. For this purpose he will raise up Antichrist and his prophet to lead the faithful into error and destroy those who remain steadfast... The Papacy will be attacked by all the powers of Hel. In consequence the Church will suffer great trials and afflictions." (Berry, 120-121.) "It is a matter of history that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal throne was vacant, or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate head of the Church... The Church deprived of her chief pastor must seek sanctuary in solitude there to be guided by God Himself."Bery, 124)

Fr. Berry continues, "Antichrist will have his representative in the false prophet who will be endowed with the plenitude of satanic powers to deceive the nations.. The prophet will probably set himself up in Rome as a sort of antipope during the vacancy of the Papal throne... Antichrist will be honored as Savior and his prophet will usurp the role of Pope. Their ceremonies will counterfeit the sacraments... In fact there will be a complete organization -a church of Satan set up in opposition to the Church of Christ." (Bery, 135, 138)

"Those shall be days of great persecution in which the Church will suffer all the horrors of the early ages, but she will likewise be crowned with the glory of innumerable martyrs... Realizing that the time of his power is short, Satan will loose upon earth all his rage and fury in a last effort against the Church" (Bery, 126, 127.)

Sr. Lucia said, "The devil is... engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin, and the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls."

"The Most Holy Virgin made me understand that we are living in the last times of the world. She told me that the devil is in the process of engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin, and a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Hence from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility." (Fr. Freire, O Segredo de Fatima pp. 504-508) If Our Lady had a message to the world, I believe that it would begin with the words, "My Son is coming soon, after the appearance of Antichrist." She would continue, "Many are not praying enough. Many are not praying."

"Many are involved in the many things of the world. The worid snatches so many souls. They should be praying. They should be in church. They should be spending time before my Son in the Blessed Sacrament. They should receive Holy Communion and the sacraments, especially Holy Communion worthily."

"There are many, many sacrilegious communions. unworthily so it becomes a sacrilege. My Son is very, very hurt by humanity. The creatures He created to love Him, do not honor Him and forget that He died on the Cross for their sins. Time is so short. People should be praying all the time" People that receive Holy Communion It is hard to understand why evil is allowed so much latitude and why it seems to have so many victories, while the Church is so viciously attacked. However, as the remnant of the true Church remains more steadfast in virtue than ever, she continues to draw people to God. "And since this is her mission, her prayers... have power to effect the end and purpose of God's providential and merciful designs toward men. Thus, when men pray and through the [power of the] Church, they will] at length obtain what 'Almighty God has designed from all eternity to bestow upon mankind."

..Human intelligence fails now to grasp the high designs of [Divine] Providence; but the time will come when, through the goodness of God, causes and effects will be made clear, and the marvelous power and utility of prayer wil be shown forth. Then it will be seen how many in the midst of a corrupt age have kept themselves 'pure and inviolate from all concupiscence of the flesh and the spirit, working.. [out their] sanctification in the fear of God'; how others, when exposed to the danger of temptation, have...restrained themselves, gaining new strength for virtue from the peril itself [and] how others have fallen [and then] have been seized with the ardent desire to be restored to the embraces of a compassionate God."

In his encyclical letter on the Rosary, Octobri Mense, Pope Leo XIII exhorted Catholics to persevere in prayer during these evil times. He wrote, "Therefore, with these reflections before them, we beseech all, again and again, not to yield to the deceits of the old enemy [Satan,] nor for any cause whatsoever to cease from the duty of prayer. Let their prayers be persevering, let them pray without intermission; let their first care be to supplicate for the... [highest] good-the eternal salvation of [their souls,) [the salvation of] the whole world, and the safety of the Church. Then they may ask from God other benefits for the use and comfort of life, returning thanks always as to a most indulgent Father, whether their desires are granted or refused." (op. 65-68)

Finally, since God chose to have all graces and salvation come to us from Jesus through Mary, we need to always pray to Him through her. Like St. John and the holy women we must remain in the company of Mary during these evil times. Our loving and tender Heavenly Mother will make sure our prayers will be heard according to the will of God.

Message from the Bishop
As Catholics, we have to set a good example to our neighbor by obeying lawful civil authority. At this time, the President of the United States has issued guidelines for the next 15 days in order to protect the elderly and the those with pre-existing conditions from contracting this virus as it could be fatal to them. His other concern is that our healthcare system is not able to provide sufficient medical care to large numbers. It is prudent that we abide by these guidelines not only for the welfare of those most vulnerable, but also that a large number of our faithful avoid mandatory quarantine in the event that one parishioner should come down with this virus. Therefore until further notice all public Masses are cancelled. Please pray the rosary every day to end the Coronavirus.

Please recite this prayer for protection:

Holy Mother, shield and protect me and take me under thy mantle, and keep me close to thee, until Jesus calls me to my reward, which He has prepared for me in eternity. Amen.

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.
