St. Robert Bellarmine

St. Robert Bellarmine

It seems that wherever one travels in sedevacantist circles, one often runs into St. Robert Bellarmine’s well known hypothesis that was articulated in De Romano Pontificiis. Yet it seems that we often forget that Bellarmine was also one of the best known and loved spiritual writers of his time. His short catechism was used in the foreign missions by Jesuits until well into the twentieth century, while his book The Ascent of the Mind to God by the Ladder of Created Things has been a bestseller since it’s publication shortly before Bellarmine’s death.

Yesterday was St. Robert Bellarmine’s feast day among Catholics following the post-Vatican II calendar. Therefore, I thought I would post the following litany written in his honor here.

Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us!

St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!

St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us!

St. Robert Bellarmine, pray for us!
