Ave Maria!

It took me a long time to get back to finishing this clip, but now it’s finished. I was able to get a lot done while waiting at the airport.

Mount Lafayette is a 5,249-foot (1,600 m) mountain at the northern end of the Franconia Range in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It is one of the most popular day-hike destinations in the White Mountain National Forest due to spectacular views at its summit and its location beside Interstate 93. The upper portion of the mountain is located in the alpine zone, an area where only small vegetation exists due to the harsh climate. -Wikipedia

st leopoldo

He was born in Dalmatia (Bosnia-Hercogovina) in 1866. He was small and sickly and even when grown to manhood he was only 4’5″ tall and never enjoyed good health. His voice was weak and so it was decided that he would not make for a good preacher which was a terrible blow to him for he longed with all his heart to do all he could for the reunification of the Eastern Church with Rome and desired (more…)

Patrons for Grandparents: Saints Joachim and Anne

Ave Maria Meditations

PRAYER TO ST. JOACHIM AND ST. ANNE:

Great and glorious patriarch, St. Joachim, and good St. Anne, what joy is mine when I consider that you were chosen among all God’s holy ones to assist in the fulfillment of the mysteries of God, and to enrich our earth with the great Mother of God, Mary most holy. By this singular privilege, you have become most powerful with both the Mother and her Son, so as to be able to obtain for us the graces that are needful to us.

With great confidence I have recourse to your mighty protection, and I commend to you all my needs, both spiritual and temporal, and those of my family. Especially do I entrust to your keeping the particular favor that I desire and look for from your intercession.

And since you were a perfect pattern of the interior life, obtain for me the grace to pray earnestly, and never to set m heart on the passing goods of this life. Give me a lively and enduring love for Jesus and Mary. Obtain for me also a sincere devotion and obedience to Holy church and the sovereign pontiff who rules over her, in order that I may live and die in faith and hope and perfect charity. Let me ever invoke the holy Names of Jesus and Mary. And may I thus be saved. Amen.

Fi News #112 -  Contemplative Sisters’ Convent in Lanherne ( 05min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Well it seems the FI Contemplative Sisters in Lanherne, England are sold on their convent and they want to buy it, or we should say, they *have* to buy it because the Carmelites who own it want to sell it. So they made this video to be able to raise about million pounds (£ 1,000,000 or $1,600,000) to buy the convent and St. Joseph’s Hall from them.  If anyone can lend some pound sterling or can send a benefactor or two their way, please do.  Please contact: – Mother Superior, Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate, Convent of St. Joseph and St. Anne, Lanherne-St. Mawgan Newquay, Cornwall, TR8 4ER, United Kingdom Tel. 01637 860423  (fsi.lanherne@talktalk.net)

In the mean time, enjoy the video. If you wish to see it in HD on YouTube click here.

Keep this intention in your prayers. Thank you.

Templar Tragedy

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Considering the fact that I have blogged quite a bit on the Templars in the past, I thought I might be obliged to take time out from my book to write something about the reptile, Anders Behring Breivik, who claims some kind of affiliation with the Templars. That turns out to be more Templar baloney.

I am not going to waste much time on this, as his manifesto is revealed to be what one would expect, mostly a cut and paste of any kind of conservatism he could find to justify his racism and his plans for violent revolution.  Not that conservative thought leads to the recent events in Norway any more than liberal thought necessarily leads to the dirty deeds of Bill Ayers.
