Annunciation of the Lord

Annunication MBroederlam.jpgMary would never see the world in the same way again because she had conceived beneath her heart, The Word, the Son of God made flesh within her. The Word from the mind of God now in her being…She would now have to see everything through the eyes of that Word and everything would change. “Nothing would again be causal and small, but everything with light invested,” (J. Duffy, “The Annunciation”). Christ, the Light of the World.

That’s what happens when we come to know Christ, to possess Christ, to bring Christ into our very being, flesh of our flesh, blood of our blood. When our heart beats with Christ’s heart we see the whole world differently. We look into the womb of every mother and see the image of the Son of God.
John Joseph Cardinal O’Connor
8th Archbishop of New York, 1984-2000

National Prayer for Life Campaign launched

On Our Knees prayer for life.jpg

Yesterday, May 3rd,
marked the 10th Anniversary of the entrance into eternal life of John Cardinal

Many of you were able to be present -and others were present through
EWTN–and shared prayer with us for the Cardinal’s eternal peace and God’s
mercy. In case you want see the video coverage, you may watch it here and
I suspect that EWTN will run the program again.

At the end of the Mass,
Archbishop Timothy Dolan launched and introduced a new effort of the Knights of
and the Sisters of Life called the National Prayer for Life

Please join us in praying this
prayer every day and give it to others; all of us are hoping that it spreads
throughout our nation so that a Culture of Life may be fully restored!

Saints Philip and James; Cardinal O’Connor remembered

Sts Philp and James.jpg

Philip, he who sees Me, sees also the Father, alleluia.
O God, who makes us glad by the yearly festival of Thine Apostles Philip and James, grant we beseech Thee, that we who rejoice in their merits may be taught by their example.
