God Bless Mother Angelica 1923-2016

Give as if every pasture in the mountains of Ireland belonged to you. --Saint Aidan

  True charity consists in putting up with all one's neighbor's faults, never being surprised by his weakness,
and being inspired by the least of his virtues. -- St Therese of Lisieux


Let us keep our eyes fixed on the New Jerusalem, where death will be no more.
It was such a pilgrimage to La Louvesc that St John Vianney, the Cure d' Ars, made in 1806:
he ascribed to St Francis Regis (June 16) the realization of his vocation to the priesthood.


Narrative: The Holy Virgin gestures to her Divine Son, directing our attention and adoration to Him. This classic pose of the Mother of God is known as the Hodigitria, that is the “Guide” or “Indicator of the way.” The icon combines a dignified and restrained realism with the traditional symbolism of iconography, reminiscent of the Moscow school of iconography in the nineteenth century.
The three stars on the Virgin’s mantle represent her virginity before, during and after the birth of Jesus. Although a child, Jesus is dressed as an adult, holds a scroll and blesses the beholder. The Greek letters “IC XC” are the abbreviation for “Jesus Christ”and “MP ØY” are the abbreviation for “Mother of God.”

Catholics who say the rosary in a group, or, individually before the Blessed Sacrament,

"Pray for me, and never stop praying for me or having masses offered for me for the rest of your lives.
We never know, when we get into purgatory, whom we're going to meet, scolding us for having stopped praying for them!"
-- Father Benedict Groeschel CFR -- Requiescat In Pace

 
It makes no sense Not To Believe In GOD
 

Every Christian must be a living book wherein one can read the teaching of the gospel .

October 19
Saint Luke
"Then [Jesus] led them [out] as far as Bethany, raised his hands, and blessed them. As he blessed them he parted from them and was taken up to heaven. They did him homage and then returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and they were continually in the temple praising God" (Luke 24:50-53).
The icons of Saint Luke
According to tradition, St Luke was the first person to complete three pictures of the holy Mother of God carrying the Child of God in her arms. He showed them to the Holy Virgin for approval, while she was still alive. She received these holy pictures joyfully and said: “May the grace of Him to whom I gave birth be within them!” Later, St Luke made pictures of the Holy Apostles and bestowed upon the Church this pious and holy tradition of venerating the icons of Christ and His Saints.”

October is the Month of the Rosary.
Our Lady of the Rosary Pope St. Pius V established this feast in 1573. The purpose was to thank God for the victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto—a victory attributed to the praying of the rosary. Clement XI extended the feast to the universal Church in 1716.

 

William Penn, born OCTOBER 14, 1644. While in prison, William Penn wrote his classic book, No Cross, No Crown, stating: Christ's cross is Christ's way to Christ's crown...The unmortified Christian and the heathen are of the same religion, and the deity they truly worship is the god of this world.  It is a false notion that they may be children of God while in a state of disobedience to his holy commandments, and disciples of Jesus though they revolt from his cross.
After Penn's father died, King Charles II repaid a debt owed to him by giving young William Penn a land grant in America, named Pennsylvania. Penn's Frame of Government for his Colony became a model for most State governments, and also the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

      Because of prayers during the campaign 2016, 872 babies were spared from abortion
when their mothers chose life at the last possible moment.
They were scheduled to be aborted ... but they are alive today --
   and often it was the sight of faithful people praying outside the abortion center that made all the difference in the world.
Since 40 Days for Life started as a coordinated effort in 2007,
we are aware of 12,668 children whose mothers had a change of heart and said "yes" to life.



 We are the defenders of true freedom.
  May our witness unveil the deception of the "pro-choice" slogan.

Please help save the unborn they are the future for the world

It is a great poverty that a child must die so that you may live as you wish
-- Mother Teresa

 Saving babies, healing moms and dads; 'The Gospel of Life'
Pray that when those representing Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups
see volunteers for 40 Days for Life, they see ambassadors of Christ,
and may each volunteer be consciously aware at all times we represent Him.
