By Fr. John Hampsch, C.M.F. PRAYER OF RELEASE FOR FREEMASONS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS If you were once a Mason or are a descendant of a Mason, we recommend that you pray through the following prayer from your heart. Don’t be like the Masons who are given their obligations and oaths one line at a time and without prior knowledge of the requirements. Please read it through first so you know what is involved. It is best to pray this aloud with a Christian witness or counselor present. We suggest a brief pause following each paragraph to allow the Holy Spirit to show any additional issues which may require attention. “Father God, creator of heaven and earth, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ your Son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against you and others made in your image. I honor my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood, and of the spirit by adoption and godparents, but I utterly turn away from and re

Spiritual Warfare Prayer Against Satan and Every Force of Evil

Spiritual Warfare Prayer By Fr. John Hampsch, C.M.F. Make the Sign of the Cross My sins are forgiven through the blood of Jesus, and I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus out of the hands of Satan. The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is cleansing me now and keeping me clean from all sin. I am justified and made righteous by the blood of Jesus. I am sanctified, set apart for God by the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus now covers me and protects me against all evil. The blood of Jesus, sprinkled in Heaven, now speak on my behalf. I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus out of the hand of the enemy, out of the hand of the devil. I belong to Jesus Christ, God’s Son, in my spirit, my soul, my body. I desire Jesus to be my Lord. I am redeemed by His Blood shed on the cross for me, and because of the blood, Satan has no more power over me, he has no more rights over me, he has no more place in me. According to the Word of God, he is over-come by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testi

Loughner's Pro-Abortion Atheism is Covered-up by Media

Chicago Atheism Examiner: "Loughner no more represents the atheist movement than Hitler represented Catholicism or bin Laden Islam." "Another classmate, Lydian Ali, recalled the incident as well. "'A girl had written a poem about an abortion. It was very emotional and she was teary eyed and he said something about strapping a bomb to the fetus and making a baby bomber,' Ali said." Here's the Times' version: "After another student read a poem about getting an abortion, Mr. Loughner compared the young woman to a 'terrorist for killing the baby.'" So that's how the Times transformed Loughner from a sicko laughing about a dead fetus to a deadly earnest pro-life fanatic. (Never believe a news story written by Eric Lipton, Charlie Savage or Scott Shane of The New York Times -- or for simplicity, anything in the Times.) I wouldn't

Getting Prayers Answered has these Necessary Conditions

By St. Francis De Sales All that remains is for us to state the necessary conditions to pray well. I know indeed that the ancients who treat this matter cite a great many such conditions; some count 15, others eight. But since this number is so large, I limit myself to mentioning only three. The first is that one be little by humility ; the second, that one be great in hope ; and the third, that one be grafted onto Jesus Christ crucified . Let us speak of the first, which is nothing other than that spiritual mendicancy of which Our Lord says: Blessed are the mendicant in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. [Cf. Mt. S:3]. And although some of the Doctors interpret these words thus: How happy are the poor in spirit, these two interpretations are not opposed, because all the poor are mendicants [beggars] if they are not proud, and all mendicants are poor if they are not avaricious. In order to pray well, then, we must acknowledge that we are poor, and we mus

How do I get my Prayers Answered?

St. Gertrude’s Unlimited Confidence Blind trust in God’s mercy, unlimited confidence in His love , is one of the secrets to obtain sanctity. The Holy Fathers have always taught that the measure of our hope and confidence is the measure of the graces which we receive from heaven . They have realized that, through our unreserved confidence, God is most honored and glorified. Nothing will be denied to an unlimited confidence. Our Lord revealed: “It is impossible that anyone should not receive all that he has believed and hoped to obtain. It gives Me real pleasure when men hope great things from Me and I will always grant them more than they expect.” Saint Gertrude understood that confidence is the key which opens the treasures of the infinite mercy of God. To her confidence alone she attributed all the gifts she received, and she invited all to place boundless confidence in our Savior in order to receive from Him immeasurable graces . “All that I have received,” she affirmed, “I owe t
