In the wake of the 4 seperate known attacks against the United States on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 A.D., some people feel the need to "do something".
Because this is ultimately a SPIRITUAL BATTLE against the Devil and his followers, we need to use primarily SPIRITUAL WEAPONS with which to fight against the Devil and his followers.
Therefore, in response to this tragedy, The Queen of Peace Crusade has been established. The requirements for membership are simple and basic and should be fairly easy for most any Catholic. It is to simply put into effect, as best you can according to the Grace of God, on a daily basis, the basic requirements set forth by the Queen of Peace at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917.
Here is the link which will briefly explain these simple requirements:
You may then choose to comply with all of these requirements, to the best of your ability and God's Grace. These few requirements are so basic and simple that even children can do them, just as the little children at Fatima, ages 7, 8 and 9 did!
They include the continual wearing of the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel as an external sign of your consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the daily recitation of the Holy Rosary (the full 5 decades, but not all 15 decades), etc.
The implementation of all of these simple and basic spiritual requirements of God's Peace Plan for the world is called a "Crusade" because this Spiritual Military action against the Devil and his followers really is a crusade for world peace.
If you have validly received the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation, you are thereby a soldier of Jesus Christ. But now, with the Queen of Peace Crusade, you have the opportunity to join an elite division, the Spiritual Special Forces! Just as simply "knowing" that there are other spiritual soldiers of Jesus Christ who are also members of this Spiritual Special Forces can bring one a certain amount of peace, so also it can be a source of comfort and consolation and satisfaction for you to know that you, too, are a member and that you are "doing something" worthwhile to bring about world peace guaranteed by God Himself!
If you become an official Member of the Queen of Peace Crusade, you will automatically participate in the Spiritual Works of Cordi-Marian Fathers and you will also be automatically included in all 52 Sunday Masses throughout the year!
Act of Consecration
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
the Queen of Peace
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, Refuge of the Human Race, Victress in all God's battles, we humbly prostrate ourselves before Thy Throne, confident that we will receive mercy, grace and bountiful assistance and protection in the present calamity not through our own inadequate merits, but solely through the great goodness of thy Maternal Heart.
To thee, to thy Immaculate Heart in this, humanity's tragic hour, we consign and consecrate ourselves in union not only with the Mystical Body of thy Son, Holy Mother Church, now in such suffering and agony in so many places and sorely tried in so many ways, but also with the entire world, torn by fierce strife, consumed in a fire of hate, victim of its own wickedness.
O Mother of Mercy, obtain peace for us from God and above all procure for us those graces which prepare, establish and assure the peace.
Queen of Peace, pray for us and give to the world the peace for which all people are longing, peace in the Truth, Justice and Charity of Christ. Give peace to the nations and to the souls of men, that in the tranquillity of order the Kingdom of God may prevail..
Extend thy protection to the infidels and to all those still in the shadow of death; give them peace and grant that on them also the sun of truth may shine, that they may unite with us in proclaiming before the one and only Saviour of the world "Glory to God in the highest and peace to men of good will."
Give peace to the people separated by error or discord, and especially to those who profess such singular devotion to thee and in whose homes an honoured place was ever accorded thy venerated ikon (today perhaps often kept hidden to await better days): bring them back to the one fold of Christ under the One True Shepherd.
Obtain peace and complete freedom for the Holy Church of God; stay the spreading flood of modern paganism; enkindle in the faithful the love of purity, the practice of the Christian life, and an apostolic zeal, so that the servants of God may increase in merit and in number.
Lastly, as the Church and the entire human race were consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so that reposing all hope in Him, He might become for them the sign and pledge of victory and salvation; so we in like manner consecrate ourselves forever also to thee and to thy Immaculate Heart, our Mother and Queen, so that thy love and patronage may hasten the triumph of the Kingdom of God and that all nations, at peace with one another and thee, may raise their voices to resound from pole to pole in the chant of the everlasting Magnificat of glory, love and gratitude to the Heart of Jesus, where alone they can find truth and peace. Amen.
