Month Dedicated to Our Holy Mother, Mary
Blessings dearly beloved ones,
I, “a soul”, had intended to write this specific commentary for the Lent Season, but time escaped me. So, now, I am taking a moment to do this writing, because I believe it is still important for you, my dearest followers of MaryRefugeOfSouls, to hear. I want to speak about a powerful teaching that nobody really knows about. It is something important that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, told me that Papa God wanted His precious children on earth to know about. And I want to speak about a related dream involving a most powerful Saint in Heaven.
Earlier this year, during the months of January and February, I was having great difficulty in my prayer life. I just could not focus or concentrate in my daily prayers. And it seemed like there was great distance between me and my beloved, Jesus, whose holy Voice I could not hear in my prayers during those days. It was very troubling, making me cry in my prayer struggles; and honestly, it felt like I was under a curse.
So, as the days got closer to Ash Wednesday, I knew that I would need help in order to get over my prayer hurtle. As I wanted to have a good Lent Season, preparing for Holy Week. So, I did something that I had done a few times in the past. I petitioned Papa God to assign me a holy angel to help me with my prayer life. Which is a powerful teaching that I do not think that people know about.
Beloved ones, I want you to know that whenever you are facing great difficulties, challenges, or struggles in life, you can petition Papa God to assign a holy angel to help you overcome whatever you are facing. Papa God Is such a wonderful God, a loving Father Who tenderly provides for His precious children. He will NOT deny you if you ask Him for a holy angel to help you, as a special assignment for your issue, problem, or struggle in temptation and sin, etc. This holy angel would be in addition to your guardian angel, who is your constant companion and constant defender from evil forces. And this holy angel may be on permanent or temporary assignment, depending on your particular needs.
So, I petitioned Papa God for a holy angel to help me with my prayer difficulties. And thereafter, the quality of my prayers did get better. In fact, a few days later, I was able to sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet for a few hours, which is my favorite prayer. Then, that same night, my beloved, Jesus, surprised me. As He indicated that Papa God had assigned me a holy archangel from the angelic choirs to help me with my prayers. Then, my holy helper introduced himself to me. All of which was a pleasant and nice surprise.
So, afterwards, my prayer life improved very much. Then Ash Wednesday arrived and I had a very interesting related religious dream. It was early evening and I was very tired. However, because I had things that I needed to do for this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, I knew that I could not retire to bed early. So, I decided to take a quick nap in my bedroom. I went to sleep and I immediately slipped into having a religious dream.
Firstly, in my dream, I opened my eyes and I was still in my bedroom, lying on my bed. My bedroom looked exactly what it looks like when I am awake and the dream was in full color. And as I peered ahead, I saw a demonic entity, frozen, at the foot of my bed. he was turned sideways, so I could not see his face or full appearance. However, I knew that this devil frozen in place was satan.
So, then I thought to myself, oh, great, here I am so tired and now, I am having a demonic nightmare and I have to fight ugly… (my name for satan).
Then, I turned my head and I saw three devils glaring at me, with evil smirks. They were sitting about two feet away from me, frozen next to the right-hand side of my bed, watching my reaction to their demonic presence. Now, my dearest friends know that I really detest saying demonic names, as I do not like to acknowledge devils at all. But, I will tell you that two of the devils I recognized, as they are mentioned in Sacred Scriptures.
The first devil is an evil spirit that I have had spiritual battles with before. The name I call him is “wet noodle”, as in Sacred Scriptures, he is a sea monster. And it is my understanding, that wet noodle is the second most powerful devil under ugly in hell. The second devil is “old rooster” who is also in Sacred Scriptures, in the Book of Tobit, who challenges Saint Raphael Archangel. And the last devil, I do not know who it was, but he appeared as a huge black dog. Which did not surprise me, as oftentimes, devils appear to me as demonic dogs or demonic cats, etc.
So, upon seeing this, I realized that these three entities were the personal devils that satan had assigned to irritate me and were the ones responsible for my prayer life being so disrupted lately. So, I was grateful for this revelation from God, but of course, I was still tired and bothered that I had to battle ugly, wet noodle, old rooster, and black-y dog during my nap.
So, in my dream, I started with a litany. I prayed by invoking the intercession of several powerful Saints. I called upon about a dozen Saints by name, and suddenly, my dream “shifted”. Still dreaming, I closed my eyes — so, it was like I was dreaming within my dream — and I could hear the voices about twenty Saints. This group of twenty Saints consisted of all the powerful intercessors that I had called upon, as well as a few other powerful Saints that were known to me, but I did not call directly upon their names.
And as I was hearing their voices, honestly, it sounded like these twenty Saints were gathering together for a festive party in Heaven. Truly, I was reminded of how everyone greets each other when you first arrive at a fun party on earth. Except this was a fun party taking place in Heaven and I could hear all these powerhouse Saints greeting each other like the dearest and bestest of friends. I could hear laughter, light banter and chatter, as they were so animated and excited as if they had not seen each other in years. Really, it sounded like they were having a great time together, and I thought to myself, ugh, here I am stuck having to battle ugly and his rascal band…
Then, all of a sudden, I hear the holy Voice of my beloved, Jesus. I heard Him cry out, “Saint Patrick!!” and immediately, I thought to myself, whoops, that was the one Saint that I missed out on asking for his intercession! Which, of course, made me instantly embarrassed. And, in my dream, I know that Saint Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland, instantly came to this powerful gathering of Saintly intercessors in Heaven.
Then, something very amazing and marvelous began to unfold. Saint Patrick whipped out an Irish flute and began to play a sweet melodic tune. And immediately, the group of twenty powerhouse Saints began to sing in unison in Heaven.
Beloved ones, this Saintly choir and their celestial music made me awestruck. I was captivated by this ethereal, delightful serenade. Although I did not understand the lyrics — as the song was in an heavenly tongue — it was a glorious sound fest for my earthly ears. I was so carried away in my spirit to hear all these gorgeous voices singing together to the melody of Saint Patrick playing his Irish flute. I was enthralled.
So, then in my dream, I opened my eyes, and I could still see ugly and his cohort of three devils watching me in my bedroom. So then, still dreaming, I began praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet. And I continued praying the chaplet, while listening to my celestial choir of powerhouse intercessors singing protective prayers over me. Finally, ugly and his band of misfits left my presence; and I was able to get a little bit of sleep before needing to wake up.
Now, when I did wake up, I immediately looked online for information about Saint Patrick, whom honestly I did not know anything about him. So, I read about his amazing life and his devout faith. And what I found out delightfully surprised me. I discovered that Saint Patrick was known to play the flute; and there is a famous tale about how he drove out all the snakes from Ireland by his flute playing. And I discovered that Saint Patrick was very fond of animals, similar to Saint Francis of Assisi. In fact, Saint Patrick had a very close connection with dogs, as he was a type of “dog whisperer”. So, for example, evil people would often send their mean dogs to attack him when he was evangelizing throughout Ireland. However, whenever these attack dogs would approach him, Saint Patrick would kneel down and the dogs would become instantly friendly towards him, desiring to be pet instead. So, he was never threatened in any way by these mean animals.
Thereafter, I had no doubt that Papa God and my beloved, Jesus, desired me to not only continue to invoke the powerhouse intercession of the Communion of Saints, but that God desired me, in particular, to invoke the powerful, glorious defense of Saint Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland. And I knew that God desired me to share my testimony on the blog so others would have confidence in the ever-loyal and constant protection of the Saints in Heaven, who truly love and desire the best for each of us, and especially, in Saint Patrick, who is most powerful in spiritual warfare.
Also, I want to encourage people to seek out the intercession of many Saints, whenever you are having difficulties or challenges in life. As so many people limit the blessings and graces that they could receive from Heaven. As all the Saints desire to help us out in our daily needs. So, do not be afraid to petition for help from many different Saints, concerning any particular issue or problem, because they will all work together to intercede for your needs. So, form your own heavenly “prayer group” — your own little Communion of Saints — that you can rely on for constant, unfailing help and protection, as they tenderly love and cherish your deepest friendship.
God bless you, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ.

Prayer – The Lorica of Saint Patrick – Patron Saint of Ireland
THE POWERFUL AND PREEMINENT PRAYER OF EXORCISM
THE LORICA OF SAINT PATRICK, PATRON SAINT OF IRELAND
Lorica of St. Patrick (433 AD)
(literally meaning “breastplate”)
The Lorica of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is best known for only one of its verses (the one that begins “Christ with me”). But the full version incorporates all the elements of Catholic morning prayer: It is an Act of Faith (expressing the Catholic teaching on the Trinity and on Christ); an Act of Hope (in God’s protection throughout the day and throughout life, as well as in eternal salvation); and an Act of Charity (in the love expressed for God). It is, therefore, an ideal morning prayer, especially for those who have a devotion to St Patrick.
I arise today through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
through belief in the Threeness,
through confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.
I arise today through the strength of Christ with His Baptism,
through the strength of His Crucifixion with His Burial,
through the strength of His Resurrection with His Ascension,
through the strength of His descent for the Judgment of Doom.
I arise today through the strength of the love of Cherubim
in obedience of Angels,
in the service of the Archangels,
in hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
in prayers of Patriarchs, in predictions of Prophets,
in preachings of Apostles, in faiths of Confessors,
in innocence of Holy Virgins, in deeds of righteous men.
I arise today, through the strength of Heaven:
light of Sun, brilliance of Moon, splendour of Fire,
speed of Lightning, swiftness of Wind, depth of Sea,
stability of Earth, firmness of Rock.
I arise today, through God’s strength to pilot me:
God’s might to uphold me, God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me, God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me, God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me, God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to secure me:
against snares of devils, against temptations of vices,
against inclinations of nature, against everyone who
shall wish me ill, afar and anear, alone and in a crowd.
I summon today all these powers between me (and these evils):
against every cruel and merciless power that may oppose my body and my soul,
against incantations of false prophets,
against black laws of heathenry,
against false laws of heretics,
against craft of idolatry,
against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
against every knowledge that endangers man’s body and soul.
Christ to protect me today
against poison, against burning,
against drowning, against wounding,
so that there may come abundance of reward.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ in breadth, Christ in length,
Christ in height,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I arise today through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity, through belief in the Threeness, through confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of Christ.
May Thy Salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.
