Feast of St. John Damascene
Dominus tecum (The Lord is with thee, from the Holy Gospel on the Feast of the Annunciation). Therefore, the Immaculata – in whose womb the Son of God would be made flesh by the power of the Holy Ghost – had nothing to do whatsoever with not even the shortest moment of bearing, through Original Sin, the image of that proud and filthy queen of the impious, immodest and the impure – that is, the devil. We have been reborn into the image and likeness of Her Son and many times over – in God’s grace and mercy – were able to regain it at the Confessional where not only our sins but also our semblance to the devil get blotted out by the Most Precious Blood of the Lord and Savior at the words “Absolvo te…” And to guard us against this most unfortunate loss of ‘human dignity’ in its authentic sense (not the Masonic ideal: ‘show off your worth, your true colors, no matter what for god created you THAT way’) – that is, of a most perfect conformity or our most perfect transformation into the image and likeness of the Son of God – we have been given a powerful contact point with the Immaculata: Her Scapular, wherewith we are clothed – validly at that – with Her own virtues so that “as the Mother is, so Her children;” and, our most powerful contact point with God: the Holy Eucharist* through Which we are assimilated to Him Who Is the Bright Radiance of the Form of God (Phil. 2.6).
* Of course, not that kind confected with “ineffective prayers” (Fr. G. Amorth, Vatican’s Chief Exorcist) by Protestant assembly-“presiders” (in Lutheran or Episcopalian ‘Communion Service’ attire) of the “New M[e]ss” (revised, as with the “useless” New Rite of Exorcism, to reflect the “New THEO[god]…” of Vatican II and which the SSPX now accepts to have been “legitimately promulgated”) on the Masonic-Protestant-style Neo-Catholic “tables.”
