Psalm 126 Nisi Dominus
This is one of the Psalms that are prayed during the hour of None at 3:00 each day in the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She desires that it be prayed as she vehemently exhorted Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres in Quito, Ecuador as a remedy against the Apostasy that she warned us would break out in the middle of the 20th Century. These are some of the thoughts that come to mind when I pray this psalm. The Little Office is filled with such consoling thoughts in its psalms, canticles, antiphons, and every other parts - it virtually breathes out confidence in the ultimate triumph of Christ over His enemies - that moment - that EVENT referred to in the proper title taken by Our Lady - Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso - Our Lady of the Good / Great Event NOT "Good Success".
I hope that this small sample, this one caress of Our Lady's gentle hand will encourage you to keep the Faith, not despair and consider becoming a Slave of Jesus through Mary according to the method of True Devotion to Mary taught by St. Louis de Montfort and to pray the Little Office.
Psalm 126Unless our Lord build the house: they have laboured in vain, that built it.
The novus ordo church of the antichrist was NOT built by the Lord! The freemasons, jews and modernists who have built it have laboured in vain, it is a house built upon the sand that will soon fall. The house of the novus ordo was designed by the enemies of Our Lord and will not stand.
The City of God, founded upon Christ, will endure forever and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Bergolio and the other watchers and keepers of the novus ordo city watch and keep in vain. They excommunicate and excoriate those who keep the faith, but in vain.
It is in vain for you to rise before light: rise ye, after ye have sitten, which eat the bread of sorrow.
What should those of us do, then, that are fighting the good fight to hold on to Tradition and the True Catholic Faith? Panic? Be afraid? Stay up worrying about it? We who eat the bread of sorrow, who weep at what the antipopes and their church are doing, must keep up the fight BUT WE MUST KNOW THAT THE RESULT IS ASSURED BECAUSE GOD WILL ACT! As it the Holy Ghost tells us in Psalm 122, We must as the servants who keep their eyes on the hands of their masters and as the handmaid who keeps her eye on the hand of her mistress, we must trust and wait on the Lord to act. We must not think that, because we seem so helpless in the face of the giant apostasy that has taken place, the all is lost. Lose no sleep over it - Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!
When he shall give sleep to his beloved behold the inheritance of our Lord, children the reward, the fruit of the womb.
Who are these children who are the reward and the fruit of the womb - His beloved? They are the Church Militant! We are the fruit of the womb of Holy Mother Church! Heaven is our inheritance as long as we persevere. God gives us sleep, that is, peace in our hearts, by sending us His Mother to console and encourage us: Mary Help of Christians, Mexico, Quito, La Salette, Lourdes, Fatima, Knock and many other times. We are to sleep easy, not that we are to be slothful and lazy in defending the Faith. We are to fight as warriors of Christ, then be at peace. The victory is secure, in the end, My Immaculate Heart WILL Triumph.
As arrows in the hand of the mighty: so are the children of them that are shaken [who are in captivity].
The children of those in captivity, are the faithful during this Babylonian Captivity, this exile of the Church from her rightful place while the Abomination of Desolation usurps her place. We, the faithful, are as arrows in the hands of God. We should take heart! God is using us, though it does not seem that we are having much affect on things. The Church is Terrible as an Army in Array because we are arrows in God's hands! Does the arrow determine where it will fly? Does the arrow determine the target or the proper time for it to be strung upon the bow? NO! It is up to God to use us as He sees fit and WHEN he sees fit. But if we are Slaves of Jesus through Mary, EVERYTHING we do is perfectly disposed and aligned with God's Holy Will because we have submitted all to Our Lady - Our General. - As St. Joan of Arc was in restoring the rightful King of France to the throne, so Our Lady is now in the restoration of all things in Christ.
Blessed is the man, that hath filled his desire of them: he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.
This Man is the Mystical Body of Christ, he filleth his desire when the members of the Mystical Body submit themselves to Our Lady so that she may present us to Christ Our King as His arrows to fire according to His will. When He confronts His enemies -- Roncalli, Montini, Wojtyla, Ratzinger, Bergolio inter alia -- He shall not be confounded, they will be crushed by the stone and turned to powder when He falls upon them! So fear nothing --
Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!
