Prayer for the Triumph of the Catholic Faith. By Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Almighty and eternal God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we kneel before Your Majesty, and thank You from the depth of our soul for the inestimable gift of the Catholic Faith, which you have deigned to reveal to us through Jesus Christ, True God and True man. We received this divine light in holy baptism and have promised You to keep this faith inviolate until death.

Increase in us Your gift of the Catholic Faith. By Your grace, may it be strengthened and made unshakeable. Daily increase in us the understanding of the beauty and profoundness of the Catholic Faith, that we might live in the deep joy of Your divine truth and be ready to sacrifice all things rather than compromise on or betray this faith. Grant us the grace to be resolved to undergo a thousand deaths for even one article of the Creed.

Graciously receive our act of humble reparation for all the sins committed against the Catholic Faith by the laity and clergy, especially by high-ranking clergy who, contrary to the solemn promise they made at their Ordination to be teachers and defenders of the integrity of the Catholic Faith, have become champions of heresy, poisoning the flock entrusted to them and gravely offending the Divine Majesty of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Truth.

Grant us the grace to see all the events of our life, and the immense trials our Holy Mother Church is now undergoing, in the supernatural light of faith. May we believe that You will cause to arise from today’s vast spiritual desert a renewed flourishing of faith that will adorn the garden of the Church with new works of faith and give rise to a new age of faith.

We firmly believe that the Catholic Faith is the one true faith and religion, which you invite every person freely to embrace. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the destroyer of all heresies, and the great Martyrs and Confessors of the faith, may the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith triumph again in the Church and the world, so that no soul may be lost but rather come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ, the only Saviour of mankind, and through a right faith and righteous life attain eternal beatitude in You, O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To You be given all honour and glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

What a great Pope he would be in the coming conclave. Not impossible. Strange things have happened in the past....great Popes elected who held no chance going into the conclave....Pius X being one of them.

I read a piece on this site yesterday that had been have a re-evaluation of what I thought of John XXIII. I read so many articles of what a "good Pope" he was, "Good Pope John", etc. I also have read that there is evidence he was a Mason, and actually a very bad man.
The results of his Vatican II seem to lean in the direction that he was bad. That's what I always thought. But I came away with a somewhat different opinion yesterday.
The post I read (which I unfortunatly didn't it put it to my favorites), said that John XXIII had Vatican II all set up from the beginning. It was to last about 3 months, discuss topics that had already been approved by him (schemata, or "subjects" drawn up by conservative Cardinals of the Curia and approved by John. The subjects would be limitied, and not deal with the entire life of the Church. But when the Council opened, the filth liberal CArdinals and periti(theological advisors) from radical liberal countries (Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France....and unfortunatly, afew from the USA) hijacked the Council, trashed the Papally approved Schema of topics, and opened up the Council to discuss everything. John XXIII was already sick when he opened the Council in October 1962 with stomach cancer, but he was under treatment, and it was not expected to advance quickly. When he saw that his Council was being hijacked by the liberals, he quickly appointed an army of conservative Cardinals and bishops to try to turn it around....but it was too late. He had lost control of it.
When the session of the Council closed, John XXIII was still functioning, and fully expected to be around the following Autumn to open the second session, where he hoped to take control of the Council.....but unfortunatly, his condition took a turn for the worse in the Spring, and he died June 3, 1963, but not until uttering surprising orders that are RARELY ever mentioned. Afew days before he died, he said according to Jean Guttion, one of the few lay theologians at the Council..."STOP THE COUNCIL, STOP THE COUNCIL!!
Personally, I would tend to believe this, rather than the sugar-sweet supposed last moments when John XXIII was praying for the success of his council, saying "Ut unum sint", etc. (Thay we may be one) Meaning Catholics, Protesants, etc.
Schneider is a wonderful man. The cardinals could not do any better than chose someone like him......or Burke, Sarah, Muller, Eijk or Erdo.
