“In as much as the enemies of Christianity are so stubborn in their aims, its defenders must be equally staunch, especially as the Heavenly help and the benefits which are bestowed on us by God are more usually the fruits of our perseverance.” Pope Leo XIII
These are again prophetic words of Pope Leo XIII. How accurately Pope Leo analyzed the spirit of those who are opposed to Christianity. They have one object: to destroy Christianity, to destroy morality,to blot out religion and all that it teaches. Nothing is an obstacle. They never rest.
The defenders of Christianity must prepare for battle.
The Rosary is our special weapon. If we look at the Rosary it is seen as more than a private devotion – it become a source against the forces of Paganism.
May it please God that all will know the Rosary and love the Rosary and say the Rosary daily!
Most Rev. John Carberry

We have decided to bring to you a series of Mini-books on some of the Popes.
The first is this new series in on the life of Pope Leo XIII.
God chose a very strong, but very peace-loving Cardinal from Perugia, Gioacchino Vincenzo Raffaele Luigi Pecci, to be known for all time as Pope Leo XIII, God’s diplomat.
One of the most powerful encyclicals written by Pope Leo XIII was Rerum Novarum, the Rights and Duties of Capital and Labor, issued in May 0f 1891
Pope Leo XIII composed the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, asking his protection. It goes as follows:
“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him and do you, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen”
