Bring a Friend! Our Lady of Solitude Campaign

In the 1950’s, Dr. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, the beloved son of Dona Lucilia, said:

“It is necessary, even more in these times, to have a special devotion to the solitude of Our Lady: she was alone at the foot of the Cross, with some of the holy women and, at one point, Saint John joined them. The entire world was against her, because the world was against her son. They despised her as the mother of a criminal; they persecuted her; they wanted to kill her. Despite all this, she remained standing all the time. And then, when Our Lord was buried, and she went to the Cenacle, she felt completely alone; she endured the torment of loneliness, which was one of the most terrible pains of Our Lady, incredible loneliness. And that’s how in these days, for us to be good, we must remain alone; because no one understands, no one approves, no one sympathizes, nobody wants us. When this happens, we should ask Our Lady of Solitude to grant us the courage be alone; because at this point in history, if we are not prepared to be alone, on many occasions we could lose our soul; so, the torment of loneliness becomes a necessary condition for salvation. We need the number of those of us who are isolated to become so great, that the isolated isolate those who are now the majority. We who are alone, need to be ever more numerous, must seek others who are isolated like us across the world, to unite together. And having done this we can say, ‘It was the glorious victory of the glorious legion of the isolated ones’. It is necessary not to lose sight of this.”
