“Mary is the most sweet bait, chosen, prepared, and ordained by God, to catch the hearts of men. The devotions we practice in honour of the glorious Virgin Mary, however trifling they may be, are very pleasing to Her Divine Son, and He rewards them with eternal glory.”
St. Catherine of Siena

Psalm 43 Begin with Verse 1)“A prayer in Time of Affliction Past Mercies Inspire Present Courage” (Tuesday at None) “Time of Deepest Crisis” Roman Breviary. 1 “God’s people under persecution, and groaning in affliction, brings to his recollection the wonderful things God was wont to do for the defense of his faithful, and wonders how he now seems to have deserted them, thereby hoping to move him to mercy. “O God,” says the prophet, speaking in the person of the Church, or the martyrs of both Testaments, “we have heard with our ears,” he might have said “we have heard,” simply, but he adds, “with our ears,” to express the greater certainty. St. Robert Bellarmine. A Commentary on the Book of Psalms (Illustrated) (p. 202). Begin with Verse 10. Psalm 44: (Wednesday Matins) “The Marriage Song of the Redeemers” “The psalm is a prophetic wedding song for the mystic nuptials of Christ and the Church: Jesus is Bridegroom, the bride is the Church and the soul.” Roman Breviary. THE EXCELLENCE OF CHRIST’S KINGDOM AND THE ENDOWMENTS OF HIS CHURCH EXPLANATION OF THE PSALM. Verse 1 This verse forms a preface to the rest of the Psalm. In it the prophet tells us that the whole proceeded from the mere inspiration of the Holy Ghost, without any cooperation on his part. Saint Robert Bellarmine. A Commentary on the Book of Psalms (Illustrated) (p. 209).

Friday 23 February 2018: Complete Psalm 41 from v 7. Begin Psalm 42 “Ardent Desire for the House of God” Tuesday at Lauds. “Longing for the Temple” “Ps. 42, the third part of the wonderful elegy from the days of exile (Ps. 41, 42), leads the soul from the depths of the sinfulness to the mystical mount of Calvary.” Roman Breviary. 1 “David, severely pressed by Saul, or tempted by demons, and having no human succour to fall back upon, appeals to God as a judge: ‘Judge me, O God,’ for I have no one else to seek justice of but of you; ‘and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy’; and take cognizance of the charge brought against me by an unholy people.” St. Robert Bellarmine. A Commentary on the Book of Psalms, p. 201.

" Seek refuge in Mary because she is the city of refuge. We know that Moses set up three cities of refuge for anyone who inadvertantly killed his neighbor. Now the Lord has established a refuge of mercy, Mary, even for those who deliberately commit evil. Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner."
Saint Anthony of Padua (1195 - 1231)

About Radio Immaculata

St Maximilian strove throughout his life – with great success – to bring this message to the world through mass media; he published newspapers and periodicals, broadcasted on the airwaves, and even had plans for a movie studio! As an apostolate of the Marian Franciscans, Radio Immaculata exists to continue St Maximilian’s important work. To this end, our programming schedule is structured around the Holy Rosary, which will be prayed on air four times a day, every day, so listeners can tune in and pray together with the friars, wherever in the world.
