Many thanks to the True Catholic who has built this website on "The Chaplet of the Holy Wounds with the Life of Sister Mary Martha Chambon". ... “Pray much that the knowledge of My holy Wounds may be diffused throughout the world. My holy Wounds sustain the world. Ask Me for fortitude in the love of My Wounds, for they are the source of all graces. Invoke them often… and induce others to do so… Frequently and repeatedly speak of them, in order to imprint the devotion in souls.” (Our Blessed Lord to Sr. Mary Martha Chambon)

Promise #17: "The invocations of the Holy Wounds

will obtain an incessant victory for the Church."






1. At each word that you pronounce of the Chaplet of the Holy Wounds, I allow a drop of My Blood to fall upon the soul of a sinner.


2. Each time that you offer to My Father the merits of My Divine Wounds, you win an immense fortune.


3. Souls that will have contemplated and honoured My crown of thorns on earth, will be My crown of glory in Heaven.


4. I will grant all that is asked of Me through the invocation of My Holy Wounds. You. Will obtain everything, because it is through the merit of My Blood, which is of infinite price. With My Wounds and My Divine Heart, everything can be obtained.


5. From My Wounds proceed fruits of sanctity. As gold purified in the crucible becomes more beautiful, so you must put your soul and those of your companions into My sacred Wounds; there they will become perfected as gold in the furnace. You can always purify yourself in My Wounds.


6. My Wounds will repair yours. My Wounds will cover all your faults. Those who honour them will have a true knowledge of Jesus Christ. In meditation on them, you will always find a new love. My Wounds will cover all your sins.


7. Plunge your actions into My Wounds and they will be of value. All your actions, even the least, soaked in My Blood, will acquire by this alone an infinite merit and will please My Heart.


8. In offering My Wounds for the conversion of sinners, even though the sinners are not converted, you will have the same merit before God as if they were.


9. When you have some trouble, something to suffer, quickly place it in My Wounds, and the pain will be alleviated.


10. This aspiration must often be repeated near the sick: “My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of Your Holy Wounds!” This prayer will solace soul and body.


11. A sinner who will say the following prayer will obtain conversion: “Eternal Father, I offer You the Wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ to heal those of our souls.”


12. There will be no death for the soul that expires in My Holy Wounds; they give true life.


13. This chaplet is a counterpoise to My justice; it restrains My vengeance.


14. Those who pray with humility and who meditate on My Passion, will one day participate in the glory of My Divine Wounds.


15. The more you will have contemplated My painful Wounds on this earth, the higher will be your contemplation of them glorious in Heaven.


16. The soul who during life has honoured the Wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ and has offered them to the Eternal Father for the souls in Purgatory, will be accompanied at the moment of death by the Holy Virgin and the angels; and Our Lord on the Cross, all brilliant in glory, will receive her and crown her.


17. The invocations of the Holy Wounds will obtain an incessant victory for the Church.

"Jerusalem must not get into the hands of the Jews. ... I know, it is not pleasant to see the Turks in possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with that. But to support the Jews in the acquisition of the Holy Places, that we cannot do."
Words of Pope St. Pius X (01/25/1904) to the Jew Theodor Herzl, who had an audience with Pius X in the Vatican to seek his support for the Zionist effort to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. See:

The PRC is most grateful to the Italian Catholics, in union with Pope Gregory XVIII (now in *exile), for their charity towards the True Church's sacred ministers. And is pleased to post that the Hierarchy wants it relayed to them, that they will have the great opportunity to attend Holy Christmas Mass, in their important country, this year!


For Italians (and other True Catholics from around the world) who want to receive all necessary Sacraments and get sacramentals blessed by True Catholic clergy (i.e., those with canonical mission/jurisdiction), this December in Italy, please contact the Papal Restoration Staff at or call Toll-Free 1-888-598-2008 to reserve your place! (Note: Phone calls taken in English, Spanish, French, and Italian)


*Note: Many popes have been forced into exile throughout the history of the Church. Ven. Pius IX fled Rome in disguise and found refuge in Gaeta, Italy (see details below), St. Pius X contemplated exile to Austria, Pius XII feared being taken captive (being exiled) during WWII, Gregory XVII was exiled - as is his successor today. -ED


“The Supreme Roman Pontiff has found himself in a position where he must

abandon the capital of his domain in order to not compromise his own dignity."

(Pope Pius IX to King Ferdinand ll, on his forced exile from Rome, Nov. 25, 1848)

The riots during the Roman Republic were particularly grave, to the extent that they resulted in the killing of the Prime Minister of the Papal States. Following the riots, on November 24, 1848, Pope Pius IX was forced to flee clandestinely from Rome, taking refuge in Gaeta. That very night, disguised as a simple priest, the Pope succeeded in escaping from the Quirnale. In an enclosed carriage along with his secret assistant, he escaped capture and traveled to the countryside, despite all obstacles including a cannon ready to fire at the main gate of the Papal Palace. Finally he arrived at the church of Saints Peter and Marcellinus in Via Labicana. Here the Holy Pontiff found the Bavarian Ambassador Count Karl von Spaur waiting with his wife and son, who together feigned going on a sightseeing tour in the Kingdom of Naples accompanied by their new “docent.”
The Pope hopped into the Ambassador’s carriage on the evening of November 25th and arrived undisturbed in Gaeta where he wrote these words to Ferdinando II di Borbone: “The Supreme Roman Pontiff has found himself in a position where he must abandon the capital of his domain in order to not compromise his own dignity. He is now in Gaeta, yet only for a brief time, wherein it is by no means intended to compromise in any way your Majesty nor the tranquility of your people.” Moved by these words, Ferdinand II left Naples with his family and headed to Gaeta, and invited the Pope to move into his Villa in Portici, where Pope Pius IX remained until April 4, 1850.






The Church: "has ... the right to conceal herself in the catacombs"


"Now the Christian concept of the Church and of Divine Providence tells us that God 'who loves nothing dearer than the freedom of his Church' (St. Bernard), thus shaped events that the freedom of the Head of the Church should be made secure by his Temporal Power". 

' ... the Temporal Power of the Pope is at the present time not only useful but necessary for the liberty of the Church.' Necessary, because the Church has not only a right to live, but also the right to live free and unmolested. Necessary, because she has not merely the right to conceal herself in the catacombs, under the surveillance of a Questor, by the grace of the State, but she has the right to show her everlastingly youthful, beautiful and venerable countenance to all people! Because she has not merely the right to pass by the palaces of the mighty in the ragged garb of a poor servant maid, a beggar imploring a place of shelter, but she has the right to pass majestically through human society, a royal personage with power to command and a gracious blessing for all, a queen adorned with that royal crown which the eternal King placed on her brow when he purchased her, on the Cross, at the price of His Precious Blood!" (Rev. Mgr. Joseph Sehroeder, D.D A.C. Quarterly Review, Vol XVII, PHILADELPHIA: HARDY & MAHONY, 1892 A.D.)
