A Journey to Pompeii, Italy

Let’s go to Italy! Continuing our celebration of the Month of Mary, come along with Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox on an audio pilgrimage to the Pontifical Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary, located in Pompeii, Italy.  Today, the sanctuary also known as Our Lady of Pompeii attracts not only religious pilgrims but also a large number of tourists drawn by its beauty.

  •  The painting of Our Lady of the Rosary, which is venerated at the Pontifical Shrine
  • St. Bartolo Longo, a former Satanic priest who became a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, and is an important figure in the Basilica’s history

We are so grateful to this month’s sponsor, Dian Coleman in memory of Ronald Coleman, who made this podcast episode possible.

Jewel for the Journey:

“The Rosary is the prayer dearest to Mary, most loved by the Saints, most frequently used by Christian peoples, most honored by God with astounding wonders, most enriched with great promises, by the Virgin.” – Blessed Bartolo Longo


A Closer Look at Our Lady of Pompeii:


Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary by Blessed Bartolo Longo:

This prayer is a fitting way for us to conclude and to pray for those who, like Blessed Bartolo once was, are still caught under the bondage of Satanism and the occult.

St. Bartolo Longo

Sign Of The Cross


O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain that unites us to God, bond of love that unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You are our comfort in the hour of death. May the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven.”Jesus, we thank you for giving us your mother, who is our Heavenly Mother!

Amen.

Jewel for the Journey

“Putting up with any sacrifices that are asked of us in our day-to-day lives becomes a slow martyrdom which purifies us and raises us up to the level of the supernatural, through the encounter of our soul with God, in the atmosphere of the presence of the Most Holy Trinity within us. We have here an incomparable spiritual richness!” – Servant of God Lucia Santos

“Remember that you are never alone, Christ is with you on your journey every day of your lives! He has called you and chosen you to live in the freedom of the children of God. Turn to Him in prayer and in love. Ask Him to grant you the courage and strength to live in this freedom always. Walk with Him who is ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life.’” – St. Pope John Paul II


A Closer Look at The Church of Emmaus:


Get More Out of Your Journey with This Suggested Reading:

“Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?” And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive. Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.” And he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the scriptures. As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.  And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.” (Luke 24: 13-35)

Join Angela Sealana as she embarks on this week’s spiritual pilgrimage to the Madaba, Jordan, also known as the City of Mosaics. This ancient town and sacred pilgrimage destination has a long history that is mentioned in the Bible, specifically in the books of Numbers (21:30) and Joshua (13:9).

Our differences, then, are not a detriment or a danger; they are a source of richness. As when an artist is about to make a mosaic: it is better to have tiles of many colors available, rather than just a few! – Pope Francis (Urbi et Orbi, 12/2018)

“Christian intercession participates in Christ’s, as an expression of the communion of saints. In intercession, he who prays looks not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others, even to the point of praying for those who do him harm.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2635)

Jewel for the Journey:

The Holy Shroud of Turin represents an extraordinary witness of the Paschal Event: the Suffering, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a silent yet shockingly telling witness! To the believer the importance of the Shroud lies in the fact that it provides a mirror to the Gospels… The Shroud is indeed an extraordinary sign that refers us back to Jesus, the true Word of the Father. It bids us follow the example of the One, Who gave Himself up for us. – St. Pope John Paul II on the Shroud of Turin
