A fantastic explanation of our Blessed Mother 🙂


Scott Hahn posted this video in celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.  Scott Hahn explains about Mary as the New Eve and is very informative so I have posted the video today.

The Orthodox community really do live up to their name when it comes to the liturgy. How I wish Catholic Masses the world over could be as beautiful as described by Gabe Martini!

St. Peter the Apostle

St. Peter, searing with love for the Lord, pray for us!

NOVENA FOR THE ELECTION OF A POPE from March 1st to 9, 2013

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come. From thy bright heavenly throne! Come, take possession of our souls. And make them all Thine Own!

Thou who art called the Paraclete, Best gift of God above, The Living Spring, The Living Fire, Sweet Unction, and True Love!

Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace, Finger of God’s right hand, His Promise, teaching little ones To speak and understand!

O guide our minds with thy blest light, With love our hearts inflame, And with thy strength, which ne’er decays, Confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our hellish foe, True peace unto us bring, And through all perils guide us safe Beneath thy sacred wing.

Through Thee may we the Father know, Through Thee the Eternal Son, And Thee the Spirit of them both Thrice blessed Three in One.

Now to the Father, and the Son Who rose from death, be glory given, With Thee, O holy Comforter, Henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.

V/ Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created: R/ An Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

The collect of the Missal for the election of a Pope

O Lord, with suppliant humility, we entreat Thee, that in Thy boundless mercy Thou wouldst grant the most holy Roman Church a pontiff, who by his zeal for us, may be pleasing to Thee, and by his good government may ever be honoured by Thy people for the glory of Thy name. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ.

V/ Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, R/ pray for us who have recourse to Thee!

V/ Saint Pie V. R/ pray for us.

V/ Saint Pie X. R/ pray for us.

Here’s a PDF version, which also includes the novena in Latin.

God Bless.

In the wake of the violent tragedy, this is how I exactly feel.

Causes and Remedies.

The difficulty with real life is that the answers are often elusive. That’s frustrating when calamities on the scale of Sandy Hook are visited on us, because humans cannot bear the chaos of random evil. We need to understand the internal logic of the evil so we can seek to remedy such evil.

“Never Again!” is the mantra.

But it happens again, and again. Each time we ask why, but are left unsatisfied.

Last night the President, speaking in Newtown, asked, “What else can we do?” and then stated that in the coming weeks he would use all the powers of his office in dealing with law enforcement around the nation to address the problem. The…
