The Grace Force Weapons Case™ Product Overviews:
Combat Rosary™ – This is the “authentic” Combat Rosary™ originally designed by Father Richard Heilman, who was inspired to design this Combat Rosary™ based on the 1916 WWI US Government military issue pull chain service rosary. Father Heilman designed this Combat Rosary to use the most powerful of sacramentals by adding the Benedict Medal and Pardon Crucifix, which makes it a powerful spiritual assault weapon against evil. This authentic COMBAT - brand rosary, as used by the Pontifical Swiss Guard, is among the strongest rosaries ever created, which includes double split ring connectors.
This authentic Combat Rosary™ includes a “Combat Rosary Concealed Carry Card” that is a humorous way to remind us that, as Padre Pio says, this is a mighty weapon against the power of Satan. On the flip side of the Concealed Carry card is the “Act of Contrition,” to easily pull from your wallet. This authentic Combat Rosary also includes a business card size (for your wallet to have handy to give to a priest) "Exorcism & Blessing of the Medal of St. Benedict" and the “Traditional Rosary Blessing.”
The Combat Rosary™ comes in a pocket-sized Genuine Lambskin Leather Combat Pouch.
USGF Basic Training in Holiness Book™ - The 54 Day Basic Training in Holiness, along with its companion, Combat Prayer Book™, are both inspired by the original World War II pocket prayer book, My Military Missal. This Basic Training follows the powerfully miraculous 54-Day Rosary Novena, which has seen countless miracles. The daily reflections in this handbook are this Basic Training. Drawing from the truths found in the Holy Scriptures, the saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the first 27 days focus upon the qualities of excellence toward which we are all called to strive. The second 27 days contain excerpts from Fr. Richard Heilman’s book Church Militant Field Manual: Special Forces Training for the Life in Christ. In the 4" x 6" size, this soft leather-bound book, with gilded page edges in gold, is easy to handle and easy to read.
The USGF Prayer Book™ – The USGF Prayer Book™ is a necessary tool for all those looking to become strong in the Lord and in His mighty power (Eph. 6:12), and to wield the many supernatural weapons used by our mighty saints. The USGF Prayer Book™ is filled with just about every devotion, prayer, novena, chaplet, litany, blessing, etc. ever offered in the Catholic Church. It’s a beautiful prayer book you will be proud to carry wherever you go … especially to church and your favorite prayer space. In the 4" x 6" size, this soft leather-bound book, with gilt page edges in gold, is easy to handle and easy to read.
Peace Through Strength Challenge Coin™ – Challenge Coins date back to WWI (some say as far back as the Roman Empire) and were usually given to soldiers by a commanding officer, and were meant to be a sign of camaraderie in facing the demands of some particular challenge. In most cases, it would be military units during a wartime period. We are in Spiritual Warfare!
“The Lord will give strength to his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.” -Psalm 29:11. President Ronald Reagan once said, “We maintain the peace through our strength; weakness only invites aggression.” The “Peace Through Strength Challenge” is about our resolve to become strong in God’s supernatural power; the only power capable of defeating the satanic forces of evil (Ephesians 6:10-12).
On the front of the coin, the image of Our Lady comes from a famous sculpture entitled “Regina Pacis” (Queen of Peace) found at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. The sculpture was commissioned in 1918 by Pope Benedict XV during WWI. That means this is the 100th anniversary of this beautiful sculpture. The titles for Mary on the Challenge Coin are both Regina Pacis (Queen of Peace) and Virgo Potens (Virgin Most Powerful). Fr. Chad Ripperger has asked all of us to call out to Mary under this title of Virgo Potens, as we face this fierce spiritual battle in our times. Together, the two titles for Mary point to “Peace Through Strength” which is inscribed in Latin on the Challenge Coin: “Per Virtutem Pax” (Peace Through Strength).
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of St. Michael the Archangel. The image comes from a very famous 6th-century painting of St. Michael, which hangs in Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome. In this spiritual battle, we call out to St. Michael the Archangel. The inscription, “defénde nos in proélio,” which is Latin for “Defend us in battle,” comes from the St. Michael Prayer which is prayed after all Low Masses in the Extraordinary Form.
On the side of the coin, at twelve o’clock, is the first word the priest prays as he approaches the altar to offer the Traditional Latin Mass: “Introibo,” which translates to “I will go in.” At six o’clock, on the side of the Challenge Coin, are the words, “I’m Going In,” which is the battle cry of every warrior who accepts the challenge of putting their very life on the line in battle.
USGF Dog Tag™ - These are of the highest quality. They are actually quite thick and heavy and coated in silver. The craftsmanship is superb.
These are official "Scapular Medals," as they meet the requirements set by St. Pope Pius X.
In 1910, Pope St. Pius X introduced a Scapular Medal which may be substituted in most cases for any of the various scapulars. Valid enrollment in the (cloth) scapulars must, however, be made before the substitution. The condition for this substitution is that this medal has an image of Our Most Holy Redeemer, Jesus Christ, showing His Sacred Heart, and the obverse that of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.
According to Father John Hardon’s Catholic Dictionary, the scapular medal may be worn for any reason, even for reasons of convenience. The scapular medal has all the same indulgences that are associated with the cloth scapular.
And, they are DOG TAGS! “Dog tags” is an informal term for the identification tags worn by military personnel, because of their resemblance to animal registration tags. The tags are primarily used for the identification of dead and wounded soldiers. In a sense, the Scapular Medal is our “Catholic Dog Tag.” The Brown Scapular, revealed to St. Simon Stock in 1251, was a way for us, upon our death, to be identified as a child of God. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel said, “This will be the sign of the privilege that I have obtained for thee and for the children of Carmel; whoever dies clothed with this habit will be preserved from the eternal flames.”
MAHA Lapel Pin™ – This lapel pin follows the model of the Secret Service lapel seen worn, especially, by many public servants. The only difference is replacing the Secret Service star emblem with the Cross of Christ. In essence, we are the “GRACE FORCE,” who are given a special mission to wield the very force of supernatural grace in a fallen world, especially in our own nation. We are called to Make America Holy Again (MAHA).
