LOOK AT THESE TEARS.

Forgive us dear Mother Mary, for hurting Your Maternal Heart, by offending God with our sins.

Now after these things the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself was about to come. And He said unto them, “The harvest is plenteous, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He send forth labourers into His harvest.” (Luke 10:1-2)

PRAYER TO GOD TO SEND MORE LABORERS INTO HIS VINEYARD: Jesus, the Lord of the harvest, desires us to pray to Him to send more laborers, i. e. more bishops and priests, and this not only for our own sakes, but for the multitude of our fellow-men, who are still unbelievers. He alone, by His grace, can raise up true apostolic laborers for His vineyard. This prayer is very necessary. Even many Catholic countries are in sad want of priests; but, setting aside this want, the majority of men in this world are either heathens (of whom there are about 700 million or Mahometans (of whom there are about 159 million). Only 250 million belong to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church; for out of those who claim to be Christians, 80 million belong to the Greek Church, and about 90 million to various Protestant sects. The harvest is indeed still great, and the number of Catholic priests and missionaries small in proportion. [Keep in mind these figures are from 1894 A.D., Editor]

Angelic Twaddle™: St. Pope John Paul II Assassination Attempt.

Careful review of the assassination attempt on beloved
Saint Pope John Paul II reveals that a series of well
timed events (one of which was JP2 seeing the medal and changing
his posture slightly) led to his survival. The professional
assassin was no match for God’s intervention through
Our Lady of Fatima and the guardian angels.

THE ECCLESIASTICAL HIERARCHY: From this chapter we see how our Lord gradually traced the outlines of the Hierarchy of the Church, i. e. of the higher and lower orders of sacred ministers. There we have Peter, the Apostles, the disciples and the faithful; here we have the Pope, the Bishops, the Priests [with Deacons, Subdeacons and four minor orders] and the faithful.

Understand

Halloween is the name of the evening before the Christian holy days of All Saints Day on 1st November (also known as All Hallows’ or Hallowmas) and All Souls’ Day on 2nd November, thus giving the holiday on 31st October the full name of All Hallows’ Eve (meaning the evening before All Hallows’ Day).

All Saints Day (Nov 1st) is a holy day of obligation meaning that Catholics must attend Mass on the day, or at the vigil Mass the night before. Since the time of the early Church, major feasts in the Christian Church (such as Christmas, Easter and Pentecost) had vigils which began the night before, as does the feast of All Hallows’. These three days collectively referred to as All Hallowtide, are a time for honouring the saints in heaven and praying for the departed souls in purgatory who have yet to reach Heaven.

Overlooked and Dismissed During the Synod, How Single Parents Continue to be Regarded in the Church….

Well, the Extraordinary Synod for the Family, has ended, and not surprisingly single parents have gotten the same sort of polite inattention from the Catholic bishops that we are used to getting in the pews.

Special attention should be given to the accompaniment of single-parent families, in a particular way to help women who have to carry alone the responsibility of the home and raising children.

That vague-sounding one line was all the consideration single parents saw in the final relatio. Thank you for that, now we can go back to subsisting on the crumbs from the masters table, while the “divorced-and-remarried” and the “gifted gay Catholics” enjoy all kinds of concerned hand-writing from the hierarchy and, for that matter, from the secular press.

That one single line of attention given to such a large, hugely ignored faction of the Church is almost patronizing, like “oh, yeah, those people also; we are mentioning them here, so that base is covered.”
