APPROVAL OF HIS EMINENCE THE CARDINAL PATRIARCH OF LISBON

We approve and recommend with all our heart the beautiful little book Read Me or Rue It by E. D. M. [These initials used by Fr. O'Sullivan stand for Engant de Marie, that is, "Child of Mary" Ed.]
Although small, it is destined to do great good among Catholics, many of whom are incredibly ignorant of the great doctrine of Purgatory. As a consequence, they do little or nothing to avoid it themselves and little to help the Poor Souls who are suffering there so intensely, waiting for the Masses and
Although small, it is destined to do great good among Catholics, many of whom are incredibly ignorant of the great doctrine of Purgatory. As a consequence, they do little or nothing to avoid it themselves and little to help the Poor Souls who are suffering there so intensely, waiting for the Masses and prayers which should be offered for them.
It is our earnest desire that every Catholic should read this little book and spread it about as widely as possible. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
"READ ME OR RUE IT"
This title is somewhat startling. Yet, Dear Reader, if you peruse this little book, you will see for yourself how well deserved it is. The book tells us how to save ourselves and how to save others from untold suffering. Some books are good and may be read with profit. Others are better and should be read without fail.
There are, however, books of such sterling worth by reason of the counsels they suggest, the conviction they carry with them, the urge to action they give us that it would be sheer folly not to read them.
Read Me or Rue It belongs to this class. It is for your best interest, Dear Friend, to read it and reread it, to ponder well and deeply on its contents. You will never regret it; rather, great and poignant will be your regret if you fail to study its few but pregnant pages.
HELP, HELP, THEY SUFFER SO MUCH!
What are sacramentals ?
Sacramentals are powerful and blessed objects that can be a means to express your faith in God and they are instruments of grace that God uses to draw us closer to Him and to work through our lives to protect and sanctify us. Sacramentals come in different forms like rosaries, medals, pictures, statues of saints, scapulars ,crucifixes, incense, salt, water, oil etc. Many saints have spoken on their thoughts on the strength of sacramentals. Such as St. Teresa: “From long experience I have learned that there is nothing like holy water to put devils to flight and prevent them from coming back again. They also flee from the Cross, but return, so holy water must have great virtue."
When a Sacramental is blessed they have the power to bring down God's graces upon the user, they protect one from diabolical attacks of satan and the evil spirits by driving them away, they have the power to bring a soul to conversion and lead them to the sacraments, they can bring spiritual and physical healing to a soul, they can remove venial sins, give you the grace to fight temptations, deliver you from many dangers and much more.
Where do sacramentals get their power from?
"For well-disposed members of the faithful, the liturgy of the sacraments and sacramentals sanctifies almost every event of their lives with the divine grace which flows from the Paschal mystery of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ. From this source all sacraments and sacramentals draw their power."
We must continue to have recourse to the abundant graces granted through such powerful sacramentals as the Holy Rosary, the Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, the Saint Benedict Medal and so many others that have found favor with God. In these dawning years of the 21st century, in days of increasing compromise and capitulation that come from embracing the world, we must protect our authentic catholic patrimony. A significant and invaluable part of that patrimony is found in catholic sacramentals and since they are blessed objects they should be treated with reverence.
So use them to sanctify and protect your life, those of your family and friends, your loved ones and help lead souls to the kingdom of heaven.

We do not get the sacramentals blessed so you will have to get them blessed.
