So many of us cannot find a mass in communion with Pope Benedict XVI. But the Lord does not forget to send us graces when we assist even in spirit or by support of those Masses wherever they are said. For those of you who want great graces from the Lord, there is nothing which touches the Sacred Heart more than donating items for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, whereby He can glorify the Father again by the Offering of His Sacrifice and can come to souls to show them the tender love and mercy He alone has for them.
The principal apostolate which I conduct where I reside in Italy, is at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, where I organize a place where Catholic clergy, religious and laypeople can find refuge from persecution, especially cancelled priests, seminarians and religious. The most important part of this work of mercy is hosting and organizing the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in communion with Pope Benedict XVI, the true and only Vicar of Christ on Earth. So far, the Hermitage has hosted 3 cancelled priests, 1 cancelled seminarian, and I give advice to several others by phone and email. In the coming year, I have already scheduled visits from another cancelled priest and a cancelled seminarian.
In addition, here at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, it always happens, that some of the faithful who come to a Mass in communion with Pope Benedict XVI, are not prepared to receive the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist. So they go to confession after Mass and then ask to receive. For this reason, out of respect to Our Lord, there is needed a temporary Tabernacle where the priest can leave the Sacrament in a ciborium.
I recently found a new wooden Tabernacle for sale. If anyone can help me raise the funds to purchase it, it costs 270 Euro.
Also, the cancelled priests who visit the Hermitage for refuge and counsel, often do not have liturgical vestments or chalices to celebrate here. Yes, several priests have come in the past and these had their own things, but not all. And I know that in the coming year will come other priests who do not have these things, so I want to be prepared.
The Hermitage also does not have these. So if anyone would like to help me acquire such necessaries, I have included some images below with the prices for each.
Therefore, if you would like to help me purchase these things for use at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, consider a donation below. All monies raised will be used exclusively for this purpose.
I DO NOT ASK YOU TO PURCHASE THESE THINGS AND SHIP THEM TO ME, because since too many trolls visit FromRome.Info I do not want to risk divulging my address to someone who might pass it over to the enemies of Pope Benedict XVI. Also, the images above are to give you the idea of the most inexpensive quality items that can be acquired without waiting months for delivery. If more funds are raised, I can acquire better quality items.
At the hermitage, there is currently no alb, chausables, stoles, cincture nor amices. Nor chalice or ciborium (piside), nor chalice linens, nor cruets, nor tabernacle. If for the love of Jesus Christ, you can help me purchase such things, I will be most grateful. And I will remember you at every communion here, where we say 10 Hail Marys after every Mass, for the Benefactors of the Hermitage.

Dear Brother Alexis, your heartfelt appeal for this most worthy cause has prompted me to respond with my first monthly donation which I made a few minutes ago via PayPal.
It is an honour and a privilege to be in a position to assist everyone in communion with Pope Benedict XVI in this way.
Thank you. And may the Lord reward you.
I made a donation just a short while ago. Hopefully it went through alright and you will receive it in a few days. Merry Christmas.
Thanks, John! Merry Christmas to you and to yours. May the Child of Bethlehem bless you all!
