May God preserve us from the Apostasy and from the coming of Antichrist, the preliminary signs of which are multiplying day by day. May I preserve us from the great affliction which even the elect would not be able to bear without the Grace of Him Who will cut short these days. And I wish to protect us by keeping us in the "little flock," the "remainder according to the election of grace" so that we like Abraham might rejoice at the Light of His Face, the embassy of the Virgin Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary , all the inhabitants of heaven cloud of witnesses, prophets, hierarchs, evangelists, and confessors who have been faithful unto death, who shed their blood for Christ, which we acquired with the gospel of Jesus Christ in the waters of Baptism. We are their sons - weak, sinful, and unworthy; but I will not stretch forth our hands toward a strange god! Amen.
