How I Pray The Stations Of The Cross
The reigning pope in 1770 standardised the Stations of the Cross, as we know it today with 14 Stations. Prior to that there were various numbers, even up to 30. It is said that after Jesus was crucified, Mary His mother would have walked the road to Calvary every day for a number of years. As a result of the experience I had in Knock I was praying the Stations of the Cross quite often.
Holy Souls are greatly helped by praying a Novena (nine) of the Stations of the Cross on consecutive days.

If you are praying The Stations at home, I would recommend that you use a crucifix to reflect upon the crucifixion. In most booklets, there are a few lines of readings/scripture after each Station. Our Lady has requested to have the 'Glory Be To The Father' said after each of these little readings, because it represents the Holy Trinity.

Stations Of The Cross
Before each Station
Oh Jesus who for love of me, did bare Thy cross to Calvary
In Thy sweet mercy grant to me, to suffer and to die with Thee

How to Perform a Baptism
The Catholic Church allows baptisms to be performed by lay people. This prayer can be used for miscarriage, abortion or an unbaptised person.
Pray The Creed, 1 Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be. Then say… I baptise (name) in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Sprinkle Holy Water as you say this. If you don't know the gender of the baby use a dual name e.g. Mary/John or names like Frances/Francis which covers both.

Prayer Of Protection For Freedom From Curses & Evil

I place myself in the presence of Jesus Christ and submit to His Lordship. I 'Put on God's armour so as to be able to resist the devil's tactics” (Ephesians 6;10-11). I stand my ground, “with truth buckled around my waist, and integrity for a breastplate…” (Ephesians 6;14). I carry the “shield of faith” to “put out the arrows of the evil one…” (Ephesians 6;16). I accept salvation from God to be my helmet and received the word of God from the Spirit to use as a sword” (Ephesians 6:17). In the name of Jesus Christ crucified, died and risen, I bind all spirits of the air, the atmosphere, the water, the fire, the wind, the ground, the underground, and the nether world. I also bind the influence of any lost or fallen souls who may be present, and all emissaries of the satanic headquarters or any coven of witches or warlocks or satan worshippers who may be present in some preter-natural way. I claim the blood of Jesus on the air and atmosphere, the water, the fire, the wind, the ground and their fruits all around us, the underground and nether world.
In the name of Jesus Christ I forbid every adversary mentioned to communicate with or help one another in any way, or to communicate with me, or to do anything at all except what I command in Jesus name.
In the name of Jesus Christ I seal this place and all present and all family and associates of those present and their places and possessions and sources of supply in the blood of Jesus. (Repeat three times)

In the name of Jesus Christ I forbid any lost spirits, covens, satanic groups or emissaries or any of their associates, subjects or superiors to harm or take revenge on me, my family and my associates, or cause harm or damage to anything we have.
In the name of Jesus Christ and by the merits of His Precious Blood, I break and dissolve every curse, hex, seal, spell, sorcery, bond, snare, trap, device, lie, stumbling block, obstacle, deception, diversion or distraction, spiritual chain or spiritual influence, also every disease of body, souls, mind or spirit placed upon us, or on this place, or on any of the persons, places and things mentioned, by any agent, or brought on us by our own mistakes or sins. (Repeat three times)

I now place the cross of Jesus Christ between myself and all generations in my family tree. I say in the name of Jesus Christ that there will be no direct communication between the generations. All communications will be filtered through the Precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mary, the Immaculate, clothe me in the light and power of your faith. Father, please assign the angels and saints to assist me. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for being my

Wisdom, my Justice, my Sanctification, and my Redemption. I surrender to the ministry of Your Holy Spirit, and receive Your truth concerning intergenerational healing. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen
