O invincible defender of Holy Church's freedom, Saint Gregory of great renown, by that firmness thou didst show in maintaining the Church's rights against all her enemies, stretch forth from Heaven thy mighty arm, we beseech thee, to comfort her and defend her in the fearful battle she must ever wage with the powers of darkness. Do thou, in an especial manner, give strengthin this dread conflict to the venerable Pontiff who has fallen heir not only to thy throne, but likewise to the fearlessness of thy mighty heart; obtain for him the joy of beholding his holy endeavors crowned by the triumph of the Church and the return of the lost sheep into the right path. Grant, finally, that all may understand how vain it is to strive against that faith which has always conquered and is destined always to conquer: "this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith." This is the prayer that we raise to thee with one accord; and we are confident, that, after thou hast heard our prayers on earth, thou wilt one day call us to stand with thee in Heaven, before the eternal High Priest, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth world without end.
We turn to you for protection, holy Mother of God.
Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs.
Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin.
SATAN WANTED JESUS TO WORSHIP HIM
Matthew 4:9-10 And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan!For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.'" (NKJV)
Revelation 22:8-9 Now I John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am a fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God. (NKJV)
Acts 10:25-26 As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. 26 But Peter lifted him up, saying, Stand up; I myself am also a man." (NKJV)
Christians are only to worship God. Jesus is God, so He would be included in that worship. John 1:1-18 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...........(NKJV)
Jesus was worshiped from birth. Matthew 2:1-2.....For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him."(NKJV)
Matthew 2:7-11......11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him...(NKJV)
The wise men fell down to worship Jesus, they did not fall down and worship the Virgin Mary.
To pray to the Virgin Mary, dead Popes, or other people, dead or alive, is worship. To worship anyone or anything other than God is sin.
