Rorate Caeli

Salvini: “Personally, I entrust Italy, my life and your lives to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let’s entrust ourselves to the six Patrons of Europe.”

Yesterday, the leader of an Italian political party, at a packed rally in Piazza Duomo, Milan, invoked the intercession of Our Blessed Lady and the Holy Patrons of Europe “for the peace and prosperity of our peoples”: words that immediately stirred the hearts of Catholics who love Jesus and His Church "usque ad effusionem sanguinis".

The ordinary everyday Catholic accustomed to carrying the double weight of  a daily work routine and voluntary service for the “things of our Mother Church”, appreciates those who publically declare their trust in the help of God and the intercession of Our Lady and the Saints. "Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum, in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam" ("Unless the Lord has built the house, those building it have worked in vain.")

The same leader also said that he is ready to give his life for Italy. The Prophet Jeremiah exhorts us to trust always in the Lord: “Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.[...] Blessed be the man that trusteth in the Lord, and the Lord shall be his confidence."  This is why in the words uttered yesterday at Piazza Duomo, Milan, we experienced the same emotional involvement of the times, when, for instance, a family member or a community were on the verge of endorsing an important enterprise.  

Minister Salvini’s intervention yesterday was for many a source of embarrassment, for others skepticism and for others a source of mockery.  For many true believers, [however] thirsty for authentic Catholicism, authentic Hope, it is instead, fresh-cool water in the barren desert-land  of today…(Cfr.M.Dionisotti su Facebook).

Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us who trust in You!

Milan, Salvini invokes the Patrons of Europe and kisses his Rosary:
The Immaculate Heart of Mary will bring us the victory”

"We trust in  men and women of good will. We commend ourselves to the six Patrons of  Europe: St. Benedict of Norcia, St Brigit of Sweden, St. Catherine of Siena, Saints Cyril and Methodius and St. Teresa Benedetta of the Cross.
We  entrust ourselves to them.We entrust our destiny, our future and the peace and prosperity of our peoples to them." 
Then brandishing a Rosary, Salvini added:
“Personally I entrust, Italy, my life and your lives to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Whom, I’m sure will bring us to victory, since Italy, this piazza, this Europe  represent mothers, fathers, men and women, who, with good humor, courage and determination want peaceful coexistence, are respectful but are also asking for respect.”
