Variety #291 – Fra Solanus talks about St. John Fisher ( 34min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Fra Solanus tells us about the life, labours and martyrdom of St. John Fisher: the great scholar who became Chancellor of Cambridge University; the holy priest who became confessor to Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII of England; the saintly Bishop of Rochester who became known all over Europe as the ‘Divine Prelate’; the defender of Holy Matrimony and the rights of Queen Catherine; the defender of the rights of the Church and Papal Supremacy against the tyrannical King Henry VIII; and who went to the executioner’s block just a couple of weeks before his friend St. Thomas More – both martyrs for the same good cause.

Praying mantis found at retreat house

Friday, January 22nd, 2016
mantis1mantis2

(click on photos for full image)

It began as just another day at our friary in Toodyay, Western Australia but then we caught this little guy trying to get in to our retreat house. He claimed he just wanted to spend some time “praying”. We doubted his intentions, and took some photos for the police. We asked him to leave, and placed him in some bushes away from the building.

We decided not to press charges.
