“Stay with me, Lord, for it is getting late: the day is ending, life is passing; death, judgment, eternity are coming soon … I have great need of you on this journey. It is getting late and death is approaching. Darkness, temptations, crosses and troubles beset me in this night of exile.”
— Saint Padre Pio’s Communion Prayer (taken from Beyond These Stone Walls)
Those who know me through this blog also know that many times I have asked for help during the tough years between 2008 through 2016. I want to thank all those who supported me with their prayers or some material help. You will be always in my daily prayers. This blog does not need any material support for the time being. All things remaining the same, the blog will remain self sufficient since someone is covering the small expenses. Now a new peril looms in the horizon and this cannot be resolved with mere money.
Ever since I moved to my current residence in Buenos Aires, I have been under extreme duress coming from various sources. I arrived here on May 26, 2012 and almost immediately the attacks began. There were events I attributed to demonic activity, other events were part of the cross I have carried all my life. At this time I am beginning to surmise that those travails and tribulations were the result of some ancient trouble in my family tree. The forces at play almost destroyed me in my youth but Christ was there. He was looking not at the sinner back then but at some point in the future where He will meet me and show me the reason for so much distress.
Here in Buenos Aires, I am living in a modest two-bedroom apartment in a nondescript building in the neighborhood of Villa Urquiza. My abode is under attack from various fronts. The city changed a lot since my youth. The gentle old neighborhood has a new population and one can hardly call that an improvement. I am surrounded by packs of evil on every side and I have to spend considerable energy and time fighting for survival and fending off aggressions of all kinds.
Not to make a long story longer, there were several legal attacks to take my rightfully owned roof from over my head. One of those attacks (in odium fidei) seem to have succeeded through legal tricks and some degree of corruption. It was a kamikaze aggression, the aggressor loses as much or more than I do. Now I am facing a very real possibility of my home being put on the auction block. The vultures are gathering and I am too tired of this game after a decade.
I am asking of you, dear readers, to please pray for these intentions until I report the outcome thereof. Those of you who belong to prayer circles, please request your fellow prayer warriors to join us.
- For the resolution of this awful situation according to the will of God
- For the conversion and subsequent salvation of all my not very intelligent enemies
- For the protection of this old sinner
I recommend the prayer listed below but you can pray as you wish. I will remain eternally grateful for your sincere prayers.
Pray also for the Church and pray for all faithful priests and bishops.
God bless you all,
PRAYER FOR ST. JOSEPH’S INTERCESSION
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls — Pray for me.
This prayer was found in the fifteenth year of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death, or be drowned, not shall poison take effect of them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy; or shall be burned in any fire, or shall be overpowered in battle. Say for nine mornings for anything you may desire. It has never been known to fail, so be sure you really want what you ask.
Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti
Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux
Numquam Draco Sit Mihi Dux
Vade Retro Satana
Numquam Suade Mihi Vana
Sunt Mala Quae Libas
Ipse Venena Bibas
