Default 2 our fathers, 2 hail marys, 2 glory be's

i found this devotion on the holy souls online website...you can see it on the following link...
http://www.holysouls.info/jesusletter.php
it is also in the pieta prayer book too...


A True Letter of Our Saviour Jesus Christ

Consecrating the Drops of Blood which Our Lord Jesus lost on His way to Calvary.

Copy of a letter of the Oration found in the Holy Sepulchre of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, preserved in a silver box by His Holiness and by the Emperors and Empresses of the Christian Faith.

St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary, with St. Matilda and St. Bridget, wishing to know something of the Passion of Jesus Christ, offered fervent and special prayers, upon which there appeared to them Our Lord Jesus Christ who spoke to them in the following manner:

I descended from Heaven to the Earth in order to convert you.

If olden times people were religious and their harvests were abundant; at present, on the contrary, they are scanty.

If you want to reap an abundant harvest you must not work on Sunday, for on Sunday you must go to Church and pray to God to forgive your sins. He gave you six days in which to work and one for rest and devotion and to tender your help to the poor and assist in the Church.

Those people, who brawl against my religion and cast slurs on this Sacred Letter, shall be forsaken by Me.

On the contrary, those people who shall carry a copy of this letter with them shall be free from death by drowning and sudden death. They shall be free from all contagious diseases and lightening; they shall not die without confession, and shall be free from their enemies and from the hand of wrongful authority, and from all their slanderers and false witnesses.

Women in peril at child-birth will, by keeping this Oration about them, immediately overcome the difficulty. In the houses where this Oration is kept, no evil thing will ever happen: and fourty days before the death of a person who has this Oration about him or her, the Blessed Virgin will appear to him or her. So said St. Gregorius.

To all those faithful who shall recite for 3 years, each day 2 Our Fathers, Hail Marys, and Glory Be's, in honour of the drops of blood I lost, I will concede the following 5 graces:

1.The plenary indulgence and remittance of your sins.

2.You will be free from the pains of Purgatory.

3.If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the same as if you had completed them.

4.It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for the Holy Faith.

5.I will descend from Heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives, until the fourth generation.

Be it known that the number of armed soldiers were 150; those who trailed me while I was bound were 23. The executioners were 83; the blows received on my head were 150; those on my stomach, 108; kicks on my shoulders, 80. I was led, bound with cords by the hair, 24 times; spits in the face were 180; I was beaten on the body 6666 times; beaten on the head, 110 times. I was roughly pushed, and at 12 o'clock was lifted up by the hair; pricked with thorns and pulled by the beard 23 times; received 20 wounds on the head; thorns of marine junks, 72; pricks of thorns in the head, 110; mortal thorns in the forehead, 3. I was afterwards flogged and dressed as a mocked king; wounds in the body, 1000. The soldiers who led me to the Calvary were 608; those who watched me were 3, and those who mocked me were 1008; the drops of blood which I lost were 28,430.

Benedetta DA S.S., Pope Leo XIII, In Roma 5 Aprile 1890

i have just found this (the link for it is at the bottom of this post)...
the promises are similar to the 2 our fathers, 2hail marys, 2 glory bes for 3 years (but they are offered in honour of the drops of blood that jesus lost on his way to calvary....

this one is 7 our father and 7 hail marys for 12 years ( offered in honour of the holy wounds and precious blood of jesus)...

The Seven Our Fathers and Hail Marys

In a private revelation to Saint Bridget, Our Lord revealed a devotion to honour His Holy Wounds and Precious Blood. It was a daily recital of seven Our Fathers and seven Hail Marys for twelve years:

"Know that I will grant the following five graces to those who recite every day for twelve years (or until their death, should they die before):

1. They will avoid Purgatory.

2. They will be numbered amongst the martyrs, as though they had shed their blood for the faith.

3. I will maintain the souls of three of their children (or relatives) in a state of sanctifying grace.

4. The souls of their relatives, up to four generations, will avoid Hell.

5. They will know the date of their death one month in advance."


This revelation was confirmed by Pope Innocent X who added that a soul will be released from Purgatory on Good Fridays through this devotion.

Ok, I should say that I believe in everything the Church teaches, but honestly I struggle with things like this. Almost seems to be some kind of magic spell or 'get out of hell free' card. Can someone explain to me the Church's teachings on these kind of things?

Hello, J, I've thought about that too. I guess that it could be that the prayer increases grace granted to us (to three relatives, relatives up to the fourth generation, and so on) and it is through this increase of grace by which we are saved. It is God's Gift to us. Saying the prayer may not necessarily in itself be a cause of salvation, but God's Grace is.

I hope that wasn't too confusing (and even more so, I hope it is in accordance with Church teaching)!
