“It shows a great power over explosive nature to be able to circle dogs in orbit about the earth, but man will never be happy until he has been able to put the beast that is in him in orbit around his reason, around his faith, and around his God.”
And so, let’s pray before Divine Mercy that we can detach ourselves from attachment to Sin!
What a wonderful day Easter is! Happy Easter!
Christ is Risen! Alleluia!
I just saw that His Holiness is going to live “with the workers,” I figured people were going to explode with joy or anger… we live in a weird world. Here’s the link:
Fr. Z posted a letter here about the EF/TLM/Old Form of the Mass making a come back at Our Lady of Victory in State College PA. I was told once that Joe Paterno would go to mass there so that he would not be a distraction to the student body for the Mass on Campus (significantly closer).
Also, I enjoy that it’s Our Lady of Victory, instead of the more recent (400 years ago) Our Lady of the Rosary. There’s something cool about that.
Finally, I had a fantastic confession there once.
I could use some prayers for an illness I’m fighting, but in the mean time:
For those who want cute: cute
For those who want not cute: here… powerful
Fr. Z’s blog has a great post regarding His Holiness Francis being a “class act.” I like it. I’ve been missing his blog comments, and in turning to find more information about our faith, I had found mostly anger and hostility.
Let us all take a moment to remember that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ as we read this blog post: Fr. Z’s Blog
St. Peter’s List has 5 Facebook Cover Photos for His Holiness Francis. I assume that they want you to use them and are giving permission!
You can find updated topics of recent addresses/homilies/etc under the “Pope Francis Topics” at the top right of the blog.
I have made a new topic string http://ourladyandsheen.wordpress.com/pope-francis/pope-francis-on-ecumenism/ . Also these can be found in the top right corner under “Pope Francis Topics”
It was amazing to see the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople addressing the Pope in Italian. How crazy would this have been a few decades or centuries ago.
And then, I enjoy that His Holiness thanked his “brother, Andrew.” Peter and Andrew together.
Oh Lord, that they may be One.
