Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici- The Polar Prefecture


Norway was partly converted to Christianity already in the 11th century, although the heathen believes continued to stay strong in certain regions of the country. In the 17th Century the nation was turned over to protestantism by force after the so called "Reformation" and a Lutheran "State Church" was imposed on everybody. For more than 2 Centuries it was forbidden to practise Catholicism in the region. But in 1855 the See of Rome was able to start a new mission in Norway and the Polar Region; the "Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici." And even though most Catholics abandoned their Catholic Traditions in order to be accepted by the Second Vatican Council sect, there are still Catholics left.. People who wish to stay faithful to the Teachings of the ancient, never changing Catholic Church, with it's Papacy, Doctrines and Traditions. People who reject heresies like modernism, freemasonry, false ecumenism and "salvation" in foreign religions. Regular Catholics in other words.

A holy Norwegian priest!

I recently discovered a Norwegian Catholic priest who lived a very saintly life and died in Belgium in 1907. He was a convert from the Lutheran heresy, and one of his prayers for the conversion of the Scandinavian peoples, were actually given an indulgence of 300 days by Pope Leo XIII. The priest's name was Karl-Halfdan Schilling, and I have a link here to read his life-story.

And this is Father Schillings' prayer for Scandinavia, with an indulgence attached to it of 300 days, decreed by Pope Leo XIII:

"Good Jesus, I humbly fall at Your feet and pray You by Your Holy Wounds and by the Precious Blood which You have shed for the whole world, to look in mercy on the Scandinavian peoples. Led astray hundreds of years ago, they are now separated from Your Church and denied the inestimable benefit of the Sacrament of Your Body and Blood, and also the many other means of grace which You have instituted for the consolation of the faithful in life and in death. Remember, O Saviour of the world, that for these souls also You have shed Your Precious Blood and have endured untold sufferings. Good Shepherd, lead these Your sheep back to the wholesome pastures of Your Church, so that they may be one flock together with us under Your Vicar here on earth - the Bishop of Rome, who in the person of the Holy Apostle Peter was commissioned by You to care both for the lambs and for the sheep. Hear, o merciful Jesus, these our petitions, which we make to You with full trust in the love of Your Sacred Heart towards us, and to Your Holy Name be glory, honor and praise for all eternity."

PRAYER:
 O merciful and eternal God, Who on calling to the True Faith Your Venerable Karl M. Schilling, have made him a model of Christian virtues and an apostle of good, we supplicate You to deign to glorify him on earth by granting us the grace... which we ardently implore, through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
