The Beauty of Christ Cathedral


IMG_2412

For the many souls outraged over the “decor” of the new Christ Cathedral.

Ponder if you will 

Imagine a new married couple. They purchase their first house. Is that house automatically furnished and full of memories? No. Over time and years, that house is transformed into their home.There are good times and bad, building expansion, downsizing,  and rest.

What makes it a home? The souls who reside in it. Its not the decorations that should grab our attention, but the fact that our Lord now resides here and is inviting all of us to reside with Him also

20 July: Saint Elijah


Pray With Us!

Elijah's Breeze

July 20
SAINT ELIJAH
Prophet and Our Father

Solemnity (O.Carm.)
Feast (O.C.D.)

The prophet Elijah appears in Scripture as a man of God who lived always in His presence and fought zealously for the worship of the one God. He defended God’s law in a solemn contact on Mt. Carmel, and afterwards was given on Mt. Horeb an intimate experience of the living God. The hermits who instituted a form of monastic life in honor of Our Lady on Mt. Carmel in the twelfth century, followed monastic tradition in turning to Elijah as their Father and model.

Evening Prayer I

Hymn

Let the sun, rising, hear your prise, Elijah,
Earth, sky, and water, hear our jubilation
To the sun’s setting, glory of your people,
Strength of our Order.

O light of heaven’s radiant beauty glowing,
Mighty in wonder, blessed in your merits,
Many times witness of his greatest marvels

Feast of the Most Precious Blood


1 July
Feast of the Most Precious Blood

Beautiful prayer from Catholic Online:

O Precious Blood of Jesus, infinite price of sinful man’s redemption, both drink and laver of our souls, Thou who dost plead continually the cause of man before the throne of infinite mercy; from the depths of my heart, I adore Thee, and so far as I am able, I would requite Thee for the insults and outrages which Thou dost continually receive from human beings, and especially from those who rashly dare to blaspheme Thee. Who would not bless this Blood of infinite value? Who doth not feel within himself the fire of the love of Jesus who shed it all for us? What would be my fate, had I not been redeemed by this Divine Blood? Who hath drawn it from the veins of my Savior, even to the last drop? Ah, this surely was the work of love. O infinite love, which has given us this saving balm! O balm beyond all price, welling up from the fountain of infinite love, grant that every heart and every tongue may be enabled to praise Thee, magnify Thee and give Thee thanks both now and for evermore.
Amen.

Sacred Heart 2019


“In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” John 16:33

This beautiful day, this day of the Sacred Heart of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray for all who are suffering with the bad news that fills this world with so much anxiety and depression. I pray for souls to grab hold of our Lord with both hands, allowing Him to touch their hearts. Allowing Him to heal the broken pieces we all have, and to bring us His peace.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You. I do not trust in the false hope of political leaders or worldly possessions. I do not trust in the news of the day. I do not trust in myself. My Lord and my God, I trust in You. You O Lord who have said: “I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” I believe, I trust, I love You. Lead the way, fill me with You.
