Our Lady and Sheen

For those looking for a GREAT cause to donate to.

A young woman, Meris, with whom I am friends, is to enter the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist on August 28th.  This is my favorite group of nuns if I had to choose only one (barely, barely, barely, barely edging out the Nashville Dominicans… not that there is a competition).  I know that not everyone can give money, but everyone who has access to facebook or twitter can at least let everyone else know about the great cause to eliminate her debt so she can enter the convent.

Look at her video here: http://meriswantstobeanun.wordpress.com/2011/08/01/ask-5/

And also read her blog: http://meriswantstobeanun.wordpress.com/

She makes a great point in her video, she is not a 501 3c, so a gift is not tax deductible, however she will pray for you, and “prayer is better for you anyway.”

Any amount will help!

Archbishop Sheen, servant of the Eucharist, pray for her, and us!

Our Lady, Mother of the Eucharist, pray for her, and us!

Bishops of England and Wales and meatless Fridays

Fr. Z has posted an article here regarding the imposition of meatless Fridays as the form of penance to be practiced in England and Wales on Fridays.

We have an obligation to do penance on Fridays (outside of Lent as well).  Giving up meat unifies the Church Militant, but please do not forget a penance (even in the United States)  is required on Fridays.

Great post regarding the Immaculate Conception over at New Liturgical Movement

NLM has a great post regarding the Immaculate Conception and Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant.  Check it out, let it sink in, pray about it.

O Mary,  conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

I have not posted in forever, please forgive me.  I have many things that I have been thinking about posting, and will work on those in short order!

A friend of mine posted a link to this analysis of the recent miner rescue in Chile, and I thought that it was extremely good.  So please, check it out, and remember to praise God in all things.

Here we go.

Wow… Just Wow! Fr. Rutler speaks.

NLM has just re-published an article written by Fr. George Rutler which is fantastic.  If you are interested in the salvation of souls and liturgics, I think that Fr. Rutler has done an excellent job here.

What a wonderful thing this interweb is

If you have ever wanted your children to pray with the Pope… even one that has been dead many years… in Latin… the internet can let you do that!  Check out Pope Pius XII at Orbis Catholicus Secundus.

Amazing Christian Virtue

For those of you following the harrowing story of the miners trapped in Chile, you may or may not have seen this story on CNN.  The miners, who are trapped with rescue efforts potentially taking months have asked for suplies in which to build a shrine to pray for their rescue.  Additionally, the President of Chile has placed a statue of St. Lorenzo, patron of miners, in the presidential palace.  This is all very amazing stuff, please go read the story at the Catholic News Agency, and remember that prayer is our first recourse, not our last.

St. Lorenzo, pray for us.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Archbishop Sheen, pray for us.

A great sign for our times

A priest friend of mine has told me a few times of the wonder and beauty (natural and divine) of Our Lady of Clear Creek Monastery.  Then on EWTN this past Saturday night/Sunday morning I saw a documentary on the monastery and the Benedictines who ore et labora there.  Today, NLM has a brief review and posting of the movie.

Check it out!

New Blog

My friend tipped me off to a blog about her friend’s blog.  This is what I wanted my blog to be like, but I am not nearly as tech savvy and artistic as this young seminarian seems to be!  Check it out, it brought back a lot of good memories just in his first few posts: http://zackswantek.blogspot.com/
