Two priests die shortly before giving a sermon against the Virgin Mary's Rosary
“The Venerable James Sprenger and other religious of his order were zealously working to re-establish devotion to the Holy Rosary… Unfortunately two priests who were famous for their preaching ability were jealous of the great influence Venerable James and companions were exerting through preaching the Rosary. So these two Fathers spoke against this devotion whenever they had a chance… One of them, bound and determined to achieve his wicked end, wrote a special sermon against the Rosary and planned to give it the following Sunday. But when it came time for the sermon he never appeared… He was found dead… After convincing himself that death had been due to natural causes, the other priest decided to carry out his friend’s plan and to give a similar sermon on the same day… However, when the day came for him to preach… God punished him by striking him down with paralysis which deprived him both of the use of his limbs and of his power of speech. At last he admitted his sin and… he silently besought Our Lady to help him… [he was] instantaneously cured and he rose up like another Saul, a persecutor turned defender of the Holy Rosary. He publicly acknowledged his former error and ever after preached the wonders of the Rosary with great zeal and eloquence.” (St. Louis De Montfort, The Secret of the Rosary, pp. 30-31)
Pope St. Agatho, III Council of Constantinople, 680-681: “… how could a knowledge of the Scriptures, in its fullness, be found unless what has been canonically defined by our holy and apostolic predecessors, and by the venerable five councils, we preserve in simplicity of heart, and without any distorting keep the faith come to us from the Fathers, always desirous and endeavoring to possess that one and chiefest good, viz.: that nothing be diminished from the things canonically defined, and that nothing be changed nor added thereto, but that those same things, both in words and sense, be guarded untouched?”
