Sunday Reflection – 23 September – Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B and the Memorial of St Padre Pio (1887-1968)

“It is easier for the earth to be without the sun than without the Mass.”

it is easier for the earth - st padre pio - 23 sept 2018

From a letter to Annita Rodote on 25 July 1915 on how to attend Mass:

“The Divine Master calls the church the house of prayer.   In order to avoid irreverence and imperfections I exhort you in the Lord to:

Enter the church in silence and with great respect.   Take the holy water and make the sign of the cross carefully and slowly.

Before God in the Blessed Sacrament genuflect devoutly.   At your pace, kneel down and render to Jesus the tribute of you presence.

Confide to Him all your needs and those of others.   Speak to Him with filial abandonment.   Be very composed when standing up, kneeling down and sitting.

Carry out every religious act with the greatest devotion.   Be modest in your glance.   Don’t turn you head here and there to see who enters and leaves.

Don’t laugh.   Don’t speak to anybody, except when requested for charity or other strict necessity.

Say the words distinctly, observe the pauses and never hurry.   Behave in such a way that all those present are edified by you.

Don’t leave without asking Jesus for His blessing and forgiveness for your shortcomings. Leave the church recollected and calm.”

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
