First Day of Novena to the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel
“Flos Carmeli, vitis florigera. Splendor coeli, Virgo puerpera singularis. Mater mitis, sed viri nescia. Carmelitis da privilegia, Stella Maris” (Flower of Carmel, fruitful vine. Splendor of heaven, unique Virgin giving birth. Mother most gentle but unknown of man. To your Carmelite children, grant the laws of favor O Star of the sea!) Thus St. Simon Stock implored the Immaculata’s intervention for Her Order besieged in and out by the devil. “All that is not of Faith is sin” (Rom. 14.23) : Let us then implore with our Holy Mother Church (from the Collect of the Mass last Sunday, the 6th after Pentecost) that the Immaculata may sooner arrest the decline of the virtue of religion, that total and complete adherence to the Rights of Christ the King – 1, the due reverential worship of Him in the Traditional Liturgy in Latin He irrevocably decreed through Pope St. Pius V to be “the norm… in all churches whatsoever.. forever;” and, 2, individual and social living according to the irreformable teachings and moral norms of Catholic Tradition (2 Thess. 2.14; 3.6), among her children and its cause : “[Not in Rome will] the dogma of the Faith [be] always preserved, etc.” (Our Lady of Fatima concluding the Second Part and introducing the Third Part of Her “Secret” She wished be fully revealed as early as 1960 to stall the diabolical vehicle of apostasy – Vatican II and its Neo-Catholicism, the “pseudo- Catholicism” of infiltrated Freemasons and Communists: “The Year 1929“).
