I am a dedicated fan of your website and I access your site atleast 2-3 times a week.I am also a sedevacantist and have absolutely in the Novus Ordo "Robber Church". However whenever I pray the rosary one thing always nags my mind and begs clarification,please guide me. After every decade we pray thus "Oh My Jesus have mercy on us and deliver us from the fires of hell,lead all souls to heaven especially those who are in most need of thy mercy" If we pray for all souls doesn't that include pagans,heretics,Hindus,Moslems etc.If this is so is it not in violation of the dogma "Extra Ecclesiam nullam Salus". Is it possible that the above prayer is a subverted version of the Fatima message released by the Robber Church. Please guide me?
Thanks for the e-mail. No, the version you have is not a phony version of the prayer that Our Lady asked to be said after the decades of the Rosary. It’s basically the correct version. Some people say the version: “O my Jesus, pardon our sins, save us from the fire of hell, have mercy on the souls in Purgatory, especially the most abandoned.” But Sr. Lucy affirmed categorically to William Thomas Walsh that this version of the prayer is not correct; this one is correct: “O my Jesus, pardon us, save us from the fire of hell, draw [or lead] all souls to heaven, especially those in most need [or most in need].” And there is no violation of the dogma in praying for all souls to be converted, and therefore be led to heaven. Everyone who is still alive has a chance to be saved. And God wants all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4), even though that won’t happen, and all who die as non-Catholics will be lost.
