Marian Consecration Starting Today

I'm starting Fr. Gaitley's 33 Days to Morning Glory preparation for Marian Consecration starting today.

I invite you [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

"In fact, Christ realized and showed the freedom that finds its fullness in love, the freedom thanks to which we 'serve one another'; in other words: the freedom that becomes the source of new 'works' and of 'life' according to the Spirit.  The antithesis and in some way the negation of this freedom takes place [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"The Evangelists did not intend to hand down the forms of the sacraments, which in the primitive Church had to be kept concealed, as Dionysius observes at the close of his book on the ecclesiastical hierarchy; their object was to write the story of Christ.
