The Best Vaccine For Any Plague

Spiritual - Medical - Financial


The purpose of this document is to illustrate, once again, that applying the fundamental teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ, with Faith and Trust in God, and confidence on His, and our, Mother, the Ever Virgin and Blessed Mary, all is possible for God. We have taken the following examples of the life of Don Bosco (St. John Bosco) (1) to illustrate what we believe and live and wish upon all our sisters and brothers.
God is the true Master of Creation and even satan must serve Him, thus, man's whole objective should be to "have God". That is the Ultimate Vaccine against temporal and spiritual plagues.


As the reader - some of which may be giggling already at our "innocence" and perhaps even at our "provincialism" - reviews what we expose here with great certainty, keep in mind that miguel de Portugal (2) was first, and continues to be a scientist. His post graduate research work was on liquid rocket propellants; that his professional career always was at the cutting edge of technology trying to achieve the technically "impossible", and succeeding - even when he ignored God for over 40 years!

Keep in mind that he can demonstrate mathematically, through Infinite Series, why and how, to give us an opportunity to Eternal Life by paying for our sins, Jesus had to die and descend into hell to then rise again. Furthermore, while the alleged Theologians dither about the reality of God, miguel has experienced the supernatural reality which allows him to know, not believe, but know that Mary's body could have been virginal during and after the birth of Jesus.

No, this is not lack of humility from the part of m de P since what is described above is only possible because the Grace of God and not by any merit or attribute or ability of miguel's. If some of you think of the above as Science Fiction - We have news for you: Science Fiction pales in simplicity, and outright provincialism, before the all encompassing and truly awesome reality of God.


Following you will find the only "formula" for the viable vaccine that will make possible your journey through the plagues that humanity is living through now and which, as you should know by now, are multiplying and increasing every day.

The Plague of 1854 (3)

Since May 1854, Don Bosco had announced to his boys that the cholera plague would reach Turin and that it would cause tremendous damage amongst the population. Then he said to them:

"Do not be alarmed and remain at peace; if you do what I tell you to do, you will be free from such scourge. First of all is to live in the Grace of God; in addition, wear around your neck a medal of María Santísima (Holy Mary), which I will bless and give to each one of you. In addition you should pray an Our Father, a Hail Mary and a Gloria with the Oremus of St. Louis de Montfort (4) plus the invocation: Ab omni malo líbera nos, Domine."

When the first cases appeared in Turin, the authorities asked for the assistance of the clergy, which made themselves immediately available to assist those stricken with cholera. The Municipality gave a striking example of piety ordering the celebration of a Religious Act in the Sanctuary of María Santísima de la Consolación (Holy Mary of the Consolation) for the morning of August 3. This Act was well attended by city officials plus an immense multitude of the Faithful. [Keep in mind that at this time Italy was in the grip of a most vitriolic anticlerical phase.]

Mary did not leave those prayers and invocations unattended because the terrible disease, against all odds, did little damage in Turin as compared to the rest of Italy and other European cities. Nonetheless, there were fifty to sixty new cases per day. The worse hit area was that of Valdocco - being the poorest and less hygienic. Close to Don Bosco's Oratory there were several families which were not only affected, but were annihilated completely.

On Saturday August 5th, Feast of Our Lady of Snows, Don Bosco gathered the full time residents of his Oratory (many of them had been poor orphans before Don Bosco, on behalf of Divine Providence, took them in) and told them that the plague had made its appearance but to remain calm, at peace and spiritually tranquil, as well as with great trust in María Santísima (Holy Mary) plus a good confession and communion. He assured them that if they remained free of sin, none of them would be harmed by the plague, however, if they did not remain in a State of Grace, he could not guarantee their safety.

Such words had a profound effect on those boys who lost no time in having a good confession, partaking of communion and behaving so well that, any better, could not have been hoped for.

There were very few people who would, even being paid handsomely, assist those who had contracted the cholera. Then, Don Bosco, moved to compassion by such situation, gathered his boys and, after explaining to them the situation, expressed his wish that some of them would accompany him, his mother, Mamá (Mother) Margarita, and Don Alasonatti in such acts of corporal and spiritual mercy. All listened to him attentively and immediately fourteen volunteered to be included in such group, a group which quickly grew to fifty. Don Bosco shed tears of joy faced with such act of detached generosity of those boys who only had themselves to give.

He repeated then: "Remain in the Grace of God, pray to the Virgin and I assure you that no student from this Oratory will be touched by the plague."

When word got out that Don Bosco's boys had consecrated themselves to such merciful enterprise, the requests for their assistance multiplied in such manner that they were not able to keep a regular schedule. Day and night, just as Don Bosco, they labored for the victims of the plague. Many times they could not even go to the Oratory to get some nourishment so they had something to eat at the house where the plague victims laid between life and death. They did not let anyone die without the Sacraments, and many were rescued from the hands of evil. Those boys acted as professional and holy nurses.

After the plague subsided - it could be said that no one from Don Bosco's Oratory was touched by the cholera.

The Plague of 1884 (3)

On July 2nd, just as the first news about the new cholera plague spread in Italy, people were informed that the plague would again strike Italy and that it would be worse that it could be imagined. It became a fact that cholera caused great damages in Busca, Spezzia and in Naples. In the meantime - Don Bosco, by word of mouth and via his Bulletins kept reminding all of the infallible preventive measures:

+ Partake of Holy Communion with the appropriate spiritual dispositions.
+ Repeat with devotion the invocation: "Mary, Help of Christians, pay for us."
+ Carry around the neck a medal of Mary, Help of Christians and cooperate in any act of charity and of the Faith in Her honor.

"With this antidote", wrote the Marquesa Carmela Gargallo as she encouraged others to acts of charity and mercy towards the victims of the plague, "go and serve at the hospices and no harm will come to you."

Hundred of thousands of medals were requested in Italy and from abroad. No one who practiced Don Bosco's preventive measures died from the plague.


There is nothing magic about the details of the above proposed "formula". The medal of Mary, Help of Christians can be replaced by the Miraculous Medal - keep in mind: There is only one Mary. You may acquire these at your local religious store (and have it blessed by a holy priest) or write to the Association of the Miraculous Medal center in Perryville, Missouri, USA (5). A Blessed Carmelite Scapular will serve the same purpose.

The prayers may be replaced with the Holy Rosary but we encourage the frequent use of the invocations quoted above or similar such as: "Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee." As Mary stated in the approved Manifestations of Akita (6) : "Without attaching too much attention to the form, be faithful and fervent in prayer to console the Master."

But above all - ask God to increase your faith, level of abandonment to His Will and confidence on the fact that He will answer your every prayer in the way that is perfect for you - even though you may not understand it then.

St. Louis De Montfort's Prayer to Jesus

O most loving Jesus, deign to let me pour forth my gratitude before Thee, for the grace Thou hast bestowed upon me in giving me to Thy holy Mother through the devotion of Holy Bondage, that she may be my advocate in the presence of Thy majesty and my support in my extreme misery.

Alas, O Lord! I am so wretched that without this dear Mother I should be certainly lost. Yes, Mary is necessary for me at Thy side and everywhere that she may appease Thy just wrath, because I have so often offended Thee; that she may save me from the eternal punishment of Thy justice, which I deserve; that she may contemplate Thee, speak to Thee, pray to Thee, approach Thee and please Thee; that she may help me to save my soul and the souls of others; in short, Mary is necessary for me that I may always do Thy holy will and seek Thy greater glory in all things.

Ah, would that I could proclaim throughout the whole world the mercy that Thou hast shown to me ! Would that everyone might know I should be already damned, were it not for Mary! Would that I might offer worthy thanksgiving for so great a blessing! Mary is in me. Oh, what a treasure! Oh, what a consolation! And shall I not be entirely hers? Oh, what ingratitude!

My dear Saviour, send me death rather than such a calamity, for I would rather die than live without belonging entirely to Mary. With St. John the Evangelist at the foot of the Cross, I have taken her a thousand times for my own and as many times have given myself to her; but if I have not yet done it as Thou, dear Jesus, dost wish, I now renew this offering as Thou dost desire me to renew it. And if Thou seest in my soul or my body anything that does not belong to this august princess, I pray Thee to take it and cast it far from me, for whatever in me does not belong to Mary is unworthy of Thee.

O Holy Spirit, grant me all these graces. Plant in my soul the Tree of true Life, which is Mary; cultivate it and tend it so that it may grow and blossom and bring forth the fruit of life in abundance.

O Holy Spirit, give me great devotion to Mary, Thy faithful spouse; give me great confidence in her maternal heart and an abiding refuge in her mercy, so that by her Thou mayest truly form in me Jesus Christ, great and mighty, unto the fullness of His perfect age.
