Excerpt from Vultus Christi

Do nothing without consulting Him in the Tabernacle. But then act fearlessly, if you see it is for His honour and glory, never minding what others may think or say. Above all, ‘cast your care upon the Lord and He shall sustain you.’ (Psalm 54, 23). Peace and calm in your soul, prayer ever on your lips, and a big love in your heart for Him and His interests, will carry you very far. (November, 1914)

Non in commotione Dominus. (‘The Lord is not in the earthquake.’ III Kings 19, 11). Labour, then with might and main to keep your soul in peace, but an unbounded trust in His loving goodness. If you live in Jesus and Jesus in you, striving to make each little action, each morsel of food, every word of the Office, etc., an act of love to be laid at His feet as dwelling in your heart, you will certainly please him immensely and fly to perfection. (January, 1912)

This morning during Mass I felt strongly that Jesus was pained that you do not trust Him absolutely, that is, trust Him in every detail of your life. You are wanting in that childlike confidence He desires so much from you, the taking lovingly and trustfully from His hands all that He sends you, not even wishing things to have happened otherwise.
He wants you to possess your soul in peace in the midst of the many troubles, cares and difficulties of your work, looking upon everything as arranged by Him, and hence something to welcome joyfully. Jesus will not dwell in your soul as He wishes unless you are at peace. This is the first step towards that union which you desire so much — but no so much as He does.

Don’t keep Him waiting, my child, but by earnest and constant efforts empty your heart of every care that He may abide with you for ever. (May, 1913)

Transubstantiation – Fr. John Hardon,S.J. – Language and understanding the Real Presence

Posted on July 22, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Transubstantiation – Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. (MP3 File)
In listening to this wonderful teaching – what stood out
to me at first was what Father says about the English
language being permeated with Protestantism.
This makes another case for the language of the
Sacred Liturgy being the language of the Church. Latin.

Of course, the teaching here on Transubstantiation is essential and is beautiful. The message hidden behind the obvious here is that the Liturgy has been permeated by the Protestant spirit and has formed many in non – Catholic understanding of the Mass precisely through the English language.A restoration of Latin in the Sacred Liturgy and a return to learning Latin and being able to learn the Faith as it has been passed down will restore the correct understanding of the Catholic Faith, in particular of the Real Presence.This is not to say that we should not hear the Readings of the Mass in English, but we ought to value the translations which are closest to the Latin and not seek to erode the faith further by implimenting empty, vague, coarse,common, street language as the language used in the prayers of the Sacred Liturgy. These words are unable to convey the truths in their full meaning. We can see the the results all around us of this. We should not support efforts to make the problem worse. It is a spirit of Protestantism denying the Catholic Faith.

What exactly is the abomination of desolation in our time?

a note
Father is speaking to the Sisters of Charity and mentions Islam.
Father also says the word “Islam” means surrender. Total surrender to the will of Allah.

Mary is as a witness of the Divine Mercy – Saint Gregory the Great Homily 25

Posted on July 22, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us.
***

Yet in the pain of this encounter, when the impurity and sickness of our lives becomes evident to us, there lies salvation. His gaze, the touch of his heart heals us through an undeniably painful transformation “as through fire” [I Corinthians 3:15].
-Spe Salvi
***
Saint Gregory the Great (c.540-604), Pope, Doctor of the Church
Homily 25; PL 76, 1188 (©Cistercian publications)
“Woman, why are you weeping?”
Mary is as a witness of the divine mercy; yes, this very Mary of whom the Pharisee, who wanted to stifle the spring of her devotion, said: «If this man were a prophet, he would know who and what sort of a woman this is who is touching him, that she is a sinner,» (Lk 7,39). But she had abandoned her wicked ways, and she washed away the stains of heart and body with her tears, and touched the feet of her Redeemer. She sat at the feet of Jesus, and listened to the words of his mouth (Lk 10,39). She had clung to him when he was alive, and she sought him when he was dead. She found alive the one she had sought when he was dead; and she found such a position of grace with him that it was she who brought the message to his apostles, who were themselves his messengers.
What ought we to see in this,my friends, except the boundless mercy of our Creator. He has put before us, as if for signs and examples of repentance, those he brought to life through repentance after a fall. I look at Peter, at the thief, at Zaccheus, at Mary and I see in them nothing else but examples put before our eyes of hope and repentance. Perhaps someone has fallen away from the faith: let him look on Peter, who wept bitterly for his fainthearted denial. Perhaps someone else has been enflamed with malice and cruelty against his neighbor: let him look on the thief, who even at the moment of death attained the reward of life by repenting. Perhaps another, enflamed by avarice, has plundered a stranger’s goods: let him look at Zaccheus, who if he had stolen anything from anyone restored it fourfold. Perhaps another yet, being enkindled with the fire of lust, has lost the purity of his body: let him look on Mary, who purged away the love of her body by the fire of divine love.See how almighty God puts before our eyes at every turn those whom we ought to imitate; he provides at every turn examples of his mercy. Let us find evils distasteful, even if we have experienced them. Almighty God freely forgets that we have been guilty; he is ready to count our repentance as innocence. If we have become dirtied after the water of salvation, let us be born again from our tears… Our Redeemer will solace our fleeting sorrows with eternal joy.

At the moment of judgment we experience and we absorb the overwhelming power of his love over all the evil in the world and in ourselves – Spe Salvi –

Posted on July 22, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

When we stand before the throne of God justice and grace will meet in the gaze of Christ Jesus.
Before his gaze all falsehood melts away. This encounter with him, as it burns us, transforms and frees us, allowing us to become truly ourselves. All that we build during our lives can prove to be mere straw, pure bluster, and it collapses. Yet in the pain of this encounter, when the impurity and sickness of our lives becomes evident to us, there lies salvation. His gaze, the touch of his heart heals us through an undeniably painful transformation “as through fire” [I Corinthians 3:15]. But it is a blessed pain, in which the holy power of his love sears through us like a flame, enabling us to become totally ourselves and thus totally of God. In this way the interrelation between justice and grace also becomes clear: the way we live our lives is not immaterial, but our defilement does not stain us forever if we have at least continued to reach out
towards Christ, towards truth and towards love… At the moment of judgment we experience and we absorb the overwhelming power of his love over all the evil in the world and in ourselves. The pain of love becomes our salvation and our joy.
Pope Benedict XVI,Spe salvi,47
