A Lady of Grace

Just Went Home...


Angelia Cecilia Flanigan


Born In Ontario Canada on June 22, 1914

Died May 2nd. 2008…


“For Love of God and Country

As a devout Traditional Catholic and for the love of God

she devoted herself as an Angel Of Charity…

On January 15, 1937 Angelia known only as Angela was

Accepted as a Registered Nurse by the Ministry

Of Health in the City of Ontario, Canada.

On December 14,1942 Angela was accepted at camp

Kilmer, New Jersey where she was naturalized

An American citizen and was granted the

Rank of Major in the United States Army…

She soon joined m.a.s.h groups deep in battle…

She recalled how the Japanese soldiers could be heard

Nearby while she assisted in several amputations to save soldiers lives all the while being in danger of losing her own or being taken as a prisoner of war.

She ended her tour of duty at the Philippine army

Hospital caring for so many soldiers and other military personnel. It was there that Major

Flanigan met the General…That is General Douglas Mc Arthur. The General came often to visit the many lame soldiers and

To show his appreciation for their service.

The two Irishman became good friends and Angela was always at

His side during the tours.

Major Flanigan received several decorations and citations

Some of which included the American Theater Service medal

Asiatic Service Medal, World War 11 Victory Medal.

Philippine independence Medal and more.

On June 1st. 1966, Major Flanigan transferred to the Retired

Reserve in recognition of her honorable and heroic service

And continued interest in the defense of our Nation…

This Angel of mercy did not retire but relocated in Orlando

Florida and occupied herself in the pursuit of helping and caring

For the less fortunate especially the elderly. It wasn’t long before

Angela would be caring for several of her neighbors and church members.

Daily she would call or visit them making sure they had food to eat.

She provided transportation and made sure they kept their

appointments with their doctors. She picked up their prescriptions seeing

to it that they took their medicine.


It wasn’t long that Angela heard about the little Chapel in Altamonte Springs and she started to come here since we had Mass four times a week

Including Sundays.

Shortly there after Fr. Ben came down with Parkinson’s decease.

(A form of paralysis characterized by muscular rigidity, tremor and weakness).

Hearing the bad news Angela decided to move in with father to care

For him.

The care she gave father was an act of Love and Charity and for

Awhile she still maintained a relationship with her other friends.

Soon afterwards Angela fell and broke her hip leading to a hip

replacement. Father’s condition got worst and his family placed

Him in a nursing home. Within thirty days Father Ben

Marcilionis died of starvation…

Following her hip replacement Angela recovered well but the shock of

Her fall and the passing of her priest led to Dementia and the

Beginning of Alzheimer's…

It wasn’t long that we realized that she could no longer care for herself.

At this time the greatest joy you could give Angela was for her to be

near the Blessed Sacrament.

A nursing home was out of the question and we moved her in the Priory.

Angela was with us for nine years.

The first year she was in a wheel chair and for eight more years she

remained bed ridden.

Major Flanigan was no longer the vibrant person that we knew.

She lost all her functions but never her smile.

For nine years she never complaint except once she called me a bozo.

Needless to say I have been called worst.

The biggest honor you can have as member of the Order of St John

Of Jerusalem Is to be called a True Hospitaler, and so it is for

Lady of Grace Kathryn Gauvin who for nine years remained

by the side of another True Hospitaler, Lady of Grace

Major Angela Flanigan


Major Flanigan never married and never had children

She lived like a lay nun

She lived, containing within herself a constant vigil of prayers.

She had what very few have today, the Gifts from the Eternal Father.

True Faith, True Hope and True Charity

“And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I

Will built my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail

Against it.” -Matt.xvi,18

Major Flanigan was not just a rock but a mountain.

A mountain of True Faith, a mountain of true Hope

And a mountain of true Love…

A Lesson for Everyday


Sunday May 11 we will celebrate the

Birthday of the Church of Pentecost …

Almost 2,000 Years ago and counting

“The Religion”

It is time to establish a great devotion to Our Lady and to take heed

To Her messages…


“For those who seek my Son and I elsewhere know that we are not there

We are here and only where the True Sacrifice of the Mass is

Offered…In my Son’s Church there can never be any compromise,

It must be as He gave it to You.”


“I want everyone to know That the Vatican is controlled by

Satan, Free Masons and Communism.”


In the name of the Father

And the Son

And of the Holy Ghost

In the name of Our Holy Mother the Church of Pentecost

In the name of St. Peter the first pope.

“You are rock and on this rock I shall built my Church

And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

In the name of Major Angelia Cecilia Flanigan

I pray and ask all those who profess to be Traditional

Catholics not to fall prey to the devil’s ‘Motu Propio’

No one can serve two masters.

Pope Benedict made it very clear. Paul the six mass is the mass of

The day every day throughout the world.

Pope John the 23rd. Mass is to be a secondary option.

No one can serve two masters at he same time.

There is no problem here. We choose to be brain dead.

The Tridentine Mass of Pope Pius the V is the Holy Sacrifice

Of the Mass that Our Lady speaks about of which outside of there is no

Salvation. It is the Mass which consist of the Transubstanciation from

The Last Supper and whose creator was and is Jesus Christ.

Our Lady of Sorrow speaks

“For those who seek my Son and I elsewhere know that we are not

there. We are here and only where the True Sacrifice of the

Mass is offered. There can never be any compromise in my Son’s

Church, it must be as He gave it to you

The New Mass is an abomination created by the evil one.


A Traditional Catholic Point of View

First and foremost Angela left this world as a devout Traditional Catholic

She left this world as a Servant of Mary, as a Tertiary (Servite) in the

Confraternity of Our Lady of Sorrows.

She left this world as a ‘Lady of Grace’ in the Order of Saint John

Of Jerusalem.

She left this world during the Armistice of the Ascension.

She left this world on a First Friday and on the eve of First Saturday.

Angela received the Sacrament of Extreme Unction prior to her death.

Her balance sheet was impeccable. It is fair to say you can pray to her…

Farewell Gracious Lady

“Old Soldiers Never Die, They Just Fade Away”

God Bless
