Bergoglio implores Our Lady, Salus populi romani

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Screenshot_2020-03-15 Coronavirus Useless Priest Goes Back to Old ProfessionToday, Vatican News reported that Cardinal Bergoglio visited Saint Mary Major’s at Rome to implore the intercession of Our Lady, under Her title of Salus populi romani — The salvation of the Roman people — to end the plague of coronavirus. And Our Lady worked Her first miracle: Bergoglio knelt.

The death toll in Italy rose today to 1807 souls. And there is the first report of 6 priests, of the Diocese of Bergamo, who have succumbed; twenty others are hospitalized.

To put that in perspective, since Corona virus came to Italy on January 25th or so, during the same period of 7 weeks, the common winter influenza kills around 6,000 to 9,000 souls, but so far only 1807 have died from Covid-19.

But the country is not shut down for the common winter flu season.

However, of all age groups, Cardinal Bergoglio is one of the most likely to die of the coronavirus, since he is a man 80-89 years of age with only one lung.

But no matter who we are, sinners or saints, devout or careless, Our Lady is our refuge in such times of  woe. So I invite you to join me each night, for the Perpetual Supplica to Our Lady Salus Populi Romani, which I transmit from the Piazza in front of Her Basilica. Please hit the subscribe button here to subscribe to From Rome Info Video’s Channel on Youtube, and then the BELL icon in the upper right of the YouTube page for that channel to get notifications for each video published.

subscribeAs soon as I get 1000 subscribers, I can transmit live. For now the program is pre-recorded.

This is all made possible by the Committee “Save us O Mary!”, who are readers of FromRome.Info, and who responded to the Emmerich Appeal.

Unlike all other prayers suggested for the Corona virus, these prayers before the Basilica of Our Lady were indicated to Bl. Ann Catherine Emmerich in 1820 as the response Our Lady wanted to merit the remedy for the Church in this time of great darkness. The virus is only the first instrument of God’s punishment.

We need to repent and return to loyalty to Pope Benedict XVI the true Pope, as departing from him is the great sin which has merited and will merit the punishments of God.

Pope Benedict XVI & Santa Maria Maggiore

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has a great devotion to Our Lady. And as the Roman Pontiff he had occasion to visit the chief place for Her devotion in the Eternal City, which is the Papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Here is a video from his first year of pontificate, which shows how beautiful the basilica is and reminds us of happier times:

In this moving video, we see the Holy Father come as Pope for the first time to Our Lady’s Basilica. It was on this occasion that he gave the prophetic prayer, which is said each night at the beginning of the Perpetual Supplica to Our Lady, Salus populi romani:

The Prophetic Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI



(May 7, 2005)


Tutta Santa, degna di ogni onore,
Tu la migliore offerta
che l’umanità possa presentare a Dio.

All Holy, Worthy of every honor,
Thou, the best offering
Which humanity can present to God.

Vergine Madre, Madre sempre vergine,
supplichi materna al Figlio Tuo.

Virgin Mother, Ever-Virgin Mother,
Offer a maternal supplication to Thy Son.

Conduci sino al porto la barca della Chiesa,
scansando gli scogli ​​e vincendo i mar rossi.

Bring the Barque of the Church to port,
avoiding the reefs and overcoming red seas.

Custodisci questa città;
Conforta chi vi giunge,
senza tetto né difesa,
ed estendi a tutti il Tuo sostegno.

Guard this City;
Comfort who comes here,
without shelter nor defense,
and extend Your protection to all.

Con fede professiamo a Te, Genetrice di Dio;
Con amore Ti onoriamo,
Con speranza Ti preghiamo,
Ti proclamiamo beata.

With faith we venerate Thee, Mother of God;
With love we honor Thee;
we hope to come before Thee
and through Thee to proclaim every blessedness.

Tu, mia Signora, mio conforto da Dio,
aiuto alla mia inesperienza,
accogli la preghiera che rivolgo a Te.

Thou, My Lady, My consolation from God,
help for my inexperience,
receive the supplication which I make to Thee.

Tu per tutti fonte di gioia,
rendimi degno di esultare insieme a Te.

Thou, who for all are a fountain of joy,
make me worthy to exult together with Thee.

Guarda l’assemblea dei credenti,
Madre del Salvatore;
allontana da loro sventure e afflizioni;
liberali dal male e dal maligno;
proteggili con l’abbondanza della Tua benevolenza.

Watch over the assembly of believers,
Mother of the Savior;
remove from them the misfortunes and afflictions;
free them from evil and from the Evil One;
protect them with the abundance of Thy benevolence.

Al ritorno glorioso del Tuo Figlio, nostro Dio,
difendi con la Tua materna intercessione
la nostra fragilità umana
ed accompagnaci sino alla vita eterna
con la Tua mano gentile,
Tu che sei potente, perche Madre.

At the glorious return of Thy Son, our God,
defend with Thy maternal intercession
our human fragility
and accompany us unto eternal life
with Thy gentle hand,
Thou who art powerful, as a Mother.

A Big Thanks to all the devotees of Bl. Emmerich!


Today’s issue of the Italian Newspaper, La Verità, contains a Front Page advertisement for the perpetual novena to Our Lady of Santa Maria Maggiore, with an invitation for all to follow on Youtube, where they can find more information.

Many thanks to the Editors of La Verità who graciously permitted a religious advertisement in their newspaper, something which most newspapers in Italy do not tolerate, since they are controlled by political interests which are opposed to the Catholic Faith.

BUT THANKS MOST OF ALL to all those who participated in the Emmerich Appeal who made this possible.

Thanks also, and especially, to the volunteers of FromRome.Info who prepared the graphical layout and edited the Italian of the advertisement.

This advertisement will appear in 4 more editions of La Verità until March 25.
