The prayers, devotions, and other sacred readings indexed below are the treasury of Holy Mother the Catholic Church — many are basic prayers ... some that go back to the earliest Church, and have been prayed for more than 2000 years in unbroken succession throughout the world and all of time since Mary first uttered her Magnificat in response to the message of the Angel Gabriel that she was to be the Mother of the Redeemer of the world. Others came later still, and together formed a sacred repository of what is most holy in our response to God’s invitation through the Prophets, and finally through His Only-Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. To these were added still many more prayers from His most faithful followers, the Saints — prayers that the Church has ever jealously guarded and zealously fostered.

Together they became the ever-ascending voice of one Church, one Faith, one Hope — one in all things for the love of Christ, for the salvation of souls, and for the sanctification  of her children. Sadly, for more than 60 years, in another wilderness and through another desert,  the children have wandered and forgot their beginning, and consequently their end, which is God. God in and through His Mystical Bride the Church for whom He suffered.

Her children have become wayward, and so many of Her Shepherds have abandoned the flock, ceasing to teach, to pass on (tradere ... the “passing on to” that we understand as Sacred Tradition) this unspeakably beautiful patrimony of Christ and His Saints in the way of holy prayer to the children ... our children ... and to us — who also were never taught. Come, then, let us gather what has been strewn, recover what has been lost, pick up what has been willfully discarded in a desperate pursuit of the world and the things of the world, to the loss our sense of what is sacred, and in this loss, losing God Himself. Do not despair. What man has forsaken yet lives in God forever, and because it lives in God, it lives in the bosom and heart of His Holy Bride the Church forever, unto the consummation of all things.
