Powerful Prayers: “Where Two or More are Gathered in HIS Name…”

Included in “The Borromeo Family of Cebu” by Marc E. Nonnenkamp (ISBN 978-1460908082 now available on www.amazon.com through CreateSpace for $17.99 paperback and for $9.99 as an Amazon Kindle e-book – ASIN B004VMONZG) as well as through Barnes & Noble in both paperback and electronic NOOKbook editions.  This book is on the Amazon “Bestsellers” list in the USA, Canada and the UK (top 3 percent of retail products).  ”The Borromeo Family of Cebu” has received 2,670,000 cumulative unique searches on Google.com.  It is the number-one searched Borromeo-related retail product among 7,537 such products in numerous countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

I thank all of you who have visited this particular page, to join my late maternal grandmother “Lola Anon” in devotion to these powerful prayers.  Read them – they have particular emphasis on making amends for the sins committed by the members of your extended families.  It makes me think of the Old Testament, of how the LORD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, our GOD of Israel, remembers the sins of those who commit them generations afterwards.  At the same token, HE remembers the devotion of those individuals generations afterwards as well.  Thank you so much for visiting, and please do continue to “spread the good word.”  The power of prayer is most awesome.  Let us continue to pray for divine justice, for the release of all of the holy souls in purgatory, for the defense of human life (from conception to natural death), for traditional marriage (uniting man and woman) and for the preservation of the traditional extended family structure.

Hier ist ein römisch-katholisches Gebetsbuch meiner Großmutter Anunciacion “Anon” Bonjoc Rallos de Borromeo (1885-1938).  Das Buch hat sie im Jahre 1923 geschrieben, nachdem mein Großvater der Richter Andrés Borromeo y Reynes (1880-1923) leider einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel.  Das Buch ist in der ”Cebuano” Sprache (einer von vielen Dialekten – auch “Visaya” gennant – der Philippinen) geschrieben.  Es gibt nun 20 Millionen Menschen im Süden der Philippinen, die Cebuano als Muttersprache sprechen.  Die Stadt Cebu auf der Insel Cebu ist nach Manila die zweitgrößte Stadt der Philippinen.  Cebu hat mehr als 3,8 Millionen Einwohner.  Vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch!

A Prayer Book in the Cebuano Language

This is a Roman Catholic prayer book written by my maternal grandmother Anunciacion “Anon” Bonjoc Rallos de Borromeo (1885-1938) and published in the Cebuano language in 1923. My late aunt Carolina M. Borromeo (1921-2010) was kind enough to translate the Cebuano prayer book and the Spanish article on Judge Borromeo into English for us.

Devotions to the Saints, Beatified and Venerable in Heaven

We all have our favorite Saints, Beatified and Venerable in Heaven.  Children should remember their very own Patron Saint Nicholas.  And what about Saint Jude Thaddeus?  He who helps those in “hopeless” situations.  With GOD, nothing is hopeless.  And what about Saint Michael the Archangel?  He who will defeat Satan, the fallen angel Lucifer.  Another wonderful Saint is Anthony of Padua, who will guide us in all we do.  And what about Saint Faustina Kowalska of the Divine Mercy?  The power to forgive sin, even greater than during the Season of Lent.  And of course, we must never forget our own Saint Charles Borromeo.  And Saint Peter the Apostle, who will defend us from iniquity.  And do not forget those such as Blessed Francisco, the cousin of Lucia dos Santos of Fatima.  Or Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich of Germany, who told of the Passion of Christ Jesus with the assistance of the famous German author Clemmens V. Brentano (Clemmens Brentano wrote one book using his notes of what Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich told him).  Another good one is Venerable Mary of Agreda, Spain who wrote “The Mystical City of God.”  Remember also Saint Joseph, Foster Father of Jesus, and Saint Padre Pio.

Devotions to the Mother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Devotions to the Blessed Mother of GOD as well, as in Our Lady of Perpetual Help.  Our devotion to her is something we share with our Byzantine Rite brethren and with our Eastern Orthodox brethren.  How can we fail to remember the messages we have received from Our Lady of Guadalupe, México (1531), Our Lady of Quito, Ecuador (1634), Our Lady of Rue de Bac, France (1831), Our Lady of La Salette, France (1846), Our Lady of Lourdes, France (1858), Our Lady of Pontmain, France (1871), Our Lady of Knock, Ireland (1879), Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal (1917), Our Lady of Garabandal, Spain (1961), Our Lady of Akita, Japan (1973), Our Lady of Betania, Venezuela (1976), Our Lady of Medjugorje, Croatia (1981) or Our Lady of Kibeho, Rwanda (1989)?

A Prayer from Saint Gertrude the Great and Saint Mechtilde of Germany

Two German Saints who gave us the most powerful prayer of all include the nuns Saint Gertrude the Great and Saint Mechtilde, both of the Middle Ages.  A prayer group started by the late wife of my good friend is devoted to this great prayer.  Bob Roth’s (1928-2013) late wife was born Edna Mae Kirke (1922-2001) in New York City, and eventually took the lay religious name “Michael Maria.”

Our LORD told Saint Gertrude the Great that the following prayer would release 1,000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said (think also of the souls of more than 1.5 billion aborted infants since 1917, and the many billions of souls of those who have never been baptized into the Christian faith in general and into the Roman Catholic Christian faith in particular):

“ETERNAL FATHER, I OFFER THEE THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THY DIVINE SON, JESUS, IN UNION WITH MASSES SAID THROUGHOUT THE WORLD TODAY, FOR ALL THE HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY, AMEN.”

Approval and recommendation (sqd.), M. Cardinal Pahiarca, Lisbon, Portugal (March 4, 1936).

Note: A prayer group dedicated to the above powerful prayer by Saint Gertrude the Great was founded by the late Michael Maria Roth (born Edna Mae Kirke) in 1980.  We have over 14,580 members from all over the world who have prayed for the liberation of more than 4,462 billion souls!  Thanks to all of you for visiting, for joining and especially for praying for the liberation of the holy souls in purgatory.

In addition to this, my first cousin Vicente “Loloi” Borromeo Atega and my third cousin Tomas “Tom-Tom” Barredo Borromeo are very active in modern Catholic fraternities.  Loloi and his wife Alice are long-standing members of the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP), which has more than 10,000 supporters in the Philippines today.

My third cousin Tomas “Tom-Tom” Clemente Barredo Borromeo is active in “Defensoris Fidei,” another Roman Catholic fraternity active in the Philippines.  Their website can be accessed at www.defensorisfidei.com.

Some Interesting Roman Catholic-subject websites:

Note: the Universal, or “Catholic” community is large, with 1,54 billion members worldwide.  It includes the bulk of the Roman Catholic Church, in union with the leadership of Pope Benedict XVI.  Furthermore, there are a small number of Traditionalists who use the old Latin Mass, both within and without of the modern Church structure.

On top of this, there is also the Eastern Orthodox Church, referred to by late Pope John Paul II as our “Eastern Lung.”  The liturgy for the Roman Catholic Byzantine Rites and for the Eastern Orthodox Rites is very similar.  The Eastern Orthodox Church has four (4) Patriarchates in Jerusalem (the Holy Land), Antioch (in Asia Minor in Turkey), Alexandria (Egypt) and in Constantinople (formerly known as “Byzantium” and now known as Istanbul in European Turkey).  The Eastern Orthodox liturgy is largely in the Greek language, and national Churches (all in Communion with one another) exist in countries such as Russia, the Ukraine (“Little Russia”), Belarus (“White Russia”), Lebanon, Syria, India, Chaldea (Iraq), Greece, Armenia, the Czech Republic (Bohemia and Moravia), Croatia, Hungary, Ruthenia, Italy, Albania, Egypt, Slovakia and Arabia.  The Eastern Orthodox Church has changed much less than the Roman Catholic Church over the years, which is a good thing.

64.) Fatima Priest (by Francis Alban with Christopher A. Ferrara, Esq.): Volume II published in 2014.  Details the lifelong work of Canadian-born Father Nicholas Gruner to have the Vatican release the entire Third Secret of Fatima (an Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Portugal from May to October of 1917).  Crucial to this message is that the Pope and all Roman Catholic Bishops in the entire world Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary – something which has never been done.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary as commanded by Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.  This MUST be done by the Roman Catholic Pontiff and all of his Bishops from all over the world.  The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary is the ONLY way to world peace.  Pray for peace in the Ukraine and Europe!  Pray for the Warning, the Miracle and the Permanent Sign in the pine bluffs of Garabandal, Spain.  The world has NO other hope!!  Russia has already turned back to Christianity, but if there is no Papal Consecration Russia may very well be used as an instrument of Punishment (Chastisement) on Europe, America and the world.  The country of the Ukraine and the city of Kiev play a central role in the “end times” within the Prophecy of Our Lady of Fatima.  War is now raging in two eastern Provinces of the Ukraine – majority ethnic Russian Donetsk and Luhansk – 160,800 Ukrainian and 171,700 Russian troops are deployed in the 3 provinces of the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk.  1.1 million ethnic Russian refugees have fled from the Ukraine into Russia proper.  20,000 ethnic Russians have fled into Belarus and Estonia (40,000 people total).  8,615 German troops and 400 American troops are now stationed in the western and central Ukraine.  1,000 troops from Bulgaria and Slovakia, and another 250 from Serbia have volunteered to help pro-Russian forces in the eastern Ukraine.
