Historical records indicate that over 800 years ago, Christians were captured and sold into slavery by the Muslims. St. John of Matha founded the Trinitarians for the purpose of going to the slave markets, purchasing slaves, and setting them free. Tradition indicates that the belief of St. John of Matha was that, of course, the Trinitarians needed substantial funds for this; and they placed their fundraising under the patronage of the Blessed Virgin, Our Mother, Mary. Their efforts were extremely successful; and St. John of Matha, with the approval of the Church, honored Our Lady with the new title “Our Lady of Good Remedy” and a feast day of October 8th. Our Lady of Good Remedy is often depicted in an image that shows her handing a bag of money to St. John of Matha, although that’s not always the case.
Catholics are now told that we frequently need a remedy for whatever problem we’re facing and that it might be financial, as with the Trinitarians, but it could be a myriad of other issues. Catholics are told to turn to our loving Mother, Our Lady of Good Remedy, and ask her to help find a remedy for the situation, no matter how complicated or hopeless it seems.
Well, in my own private revelations, as I was praying the Our Lady of Good Remedy Novena, I was given inspiration that Our Lady is the one to turn to and that there are many Marian devotions that could be used to ask for help from Our Mother. Yet, Our Lady of Good Remedy is typically used for financial relief and that the Christians who were captured and sold into slavery by the Muslims was symbolic of a deeper issue that God had already tried to show to the Jewish people who were under the control of the Romans and that even many of the Jewish people “missed the mark” when Christ came into the world.
Satan is the real enemy and sin is what enslaves us, not other people. Forgiveness is the New Jubilee, which Christ came into the world to institute the New Covenant. But God the Father had to have a way to fulfill His promise of salvation and that’s why we have the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Immaculate Conception. I was given the inspiration about the theological and psychological errors in Our Lady of Good Remedy, which included giving her the new title of “Our Lady of the New Jubilee”, and I was told that people who need help in these matters should endeavor to pray this daily and that the Church should pray this on December 8th.
Since Our Lady of the New Jubilee has not yet been approved by the Church, even though I have permission from my Diocese to share it with others so long as it is not in a “parish setting” and other conditions are met, including you being informed that it may be said privately. Therefore, you may not copy, reproduce, or reprint by any means. However, you are free to share the link with others. Adaptations have also been made to the MEMORÁRE prayer, which I have the copyright and was part of the private revelation to add onto Our Lady of the New Jubilee Prayer. Printed copies will soon be made available for purchase in English (United States), Español (Spanish), and Latin. Other translations may follow. Accessibility options based upon a qualifying disability may also be made available if the request is reasonable.
OUR LADY OF THE NEW JUBILEE PRAYER
O QUEEN of heaven and earth, Most Holy Virgin,
we venerate thee.
Thou art the beloved Daughter of the Most High God,
the chosen Mother of the Incarnate Word,
the Immaculate Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
the Sacred Vessel of the Most Holy Trinity.
O Mother of the Divine Redeemer,
who under the title of Our Lady of the New Jubilee
comes to the aid of all who call upon thee,
extend thy maternal protection to us.
We depend on thee, dear Mother,
as helpless and needy children depend
on a tender and caring mother.
O Lady of the New Jubilee, source of unfailing help,
grant that we may draw from thy treasury of graces
in our time of need.
Touch the hearts of sinners, that they may seek
reconciliation and forgiveness.
Bring comfort to the afflicted and the lonely;
help the poor and the hopeless;
aid the sick and the suffering.
May they be healed in body and strengthened in spirit
to endure their sufferings with patient resignation
and Christian fortitude.
Dear Lady of the New Jubilee, source of unfailing help,
thy compassionate heart knows a remedy for every affliction
and misery we encounter in life.
Help me with thy prayers and intercession to find a remedy
for my problems and needs, especially for
that part of me that is enslaved to anger;
feelings of shame, guilt, and victimization;
and the desire for acceptance.
There’s a part of me that also lacks the desire for success,
fears the hard work necessary to forgive
and is unwilling to sacrifice all things necessary
to grow in the virtue of love for God, healthy self-love,
and love of neighbor.
O loving Mother, there is another part of me,
the wise part, which wants to heal.
The wise part of me promises to do whatever it takes
to grow in love for God, to live a holy life,
to recognize and repent of my sins
with trust in God’s infinite mercy,
to be more conscientious in fulfilling the obligations
of my state in life,
and to strive to be a source of healing
in this broken world of ours.
Dear Lady of the New Jubilee, be ever present to me,
and through thy intercession, may I enjoy health of body
and peace of mind, heart, and soul,
and grow stronger in the faith and in the love of thy Son, Jesus.
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of the New Jubilee.
R. That we may deepen our dedication to thy Son
and make the world alive with His Spirit.
I REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who
fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
to thee I come;
before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
Look kindly upon my petitions,
And in thy mercy hear and answer me.
