Is there anything like Evernote for the computer? As it is presently, I am keeping my list of prayers on a Word document and can print it out one a month or so. Example: I update the monthly intentions of the Holy Father when Salvation posts them at the beginning of each month.

“Well, that didn’t work out so well, maybe.”

_________________________________

IMHO...I think it IS “working out.” I firmly believe that God allowed this election result because more people could be awakened to what is really evil in this way. Thus, many more people will be inclined to repent and FINALLY understand that God’s ways are far better than our own ways. It is the very MERCY and wisdom of the Father that allows it.

Evernote works across computer, tablet, and smartphone platforms. That’s the beauty of it for me. I get stopped in church and asked to pray for someone. I bring up evernote on my phone and put the intention in there.

Then when I get home, it’s on my computer and my tablet as well! Is that cool or what?

I think Paul's line about being saved as if through fire applies.

Certainly God can bring good out of this evil. Certainly he permitted us to follow “the devices and desires of our own hearts.”

It's hard for me to think about his will, though Isaiah has “I create weal and I create woe,” and Amos asks “Can there be evil in the city and I have not done it?”

But, well, Ezekiel 7 is on my mind a lot these past few days. We have profaned the temple ... of our bodies if no other temple. Ichabod ... the glory may depart for a while, the Shekinah may remove itself to the east. It's all too much for me to achieve coherence.

But I DO agree with you that many will now see what the reality of their political fantasies and whims truly is. And maybe there will be a third great awakening for this country.

You are on the list.

Well, MY list. It’s between you and God whether you’re on HIS list.

:-)

In recent days there have been stories about employees of government bodies being sacked for telling the truth. An accountant in New York noticed that much of the Hurricane Sandy money was diverted to things which had nothing to do with the storm damage. Scientists working for the Department of the Interior were fired for or cautioned against telling the truth about what would happen if certain DOI plans were carried out.

Can we not see that there is a problem here which lies at the heart of the commandment against bearing false witness? Satan is said to have declared, “Non serviam!” “I will not serve.” And here politicians and bureaucrats are acting as if their own ‘devices and desires’ were of more importance, were better justifications than the truth itself!

What sorry madness, what strange delusion is this? HOW can one hope to be happy or good by seeking what cannot be?

As I age and reflect on all I see and have seen, I find that we are beset by incorporeal enemies. Who or what but an intelligent and purposeful enemy could keep us from seeing the obvious, indeed, keep us from thinking or looking at all, and encourage us to go haring after illusion?

We have been graced with a call so seek an ever more intimate relationship with the Truth. Part of that gift is the awareness that we do NOT know, that we have NOT gained the final knowledge. And part of our response has been to long, to seek, to pray, and to implore.

It seems we must do so not only for ourselves but for others. We have gifts, we know we ought to share them, that their fullest enjoyment is found in sharing. So we must intercede, we simply must.

For the souls of those who have left the path or who don't even know there's a path to leave or to follow, for their happiness, for their return to grace — for this and more we must pray. Frightened as I am for the future of our country, I am more distressed for the future of souls who prize lies above truth, whim above will, spurious and evanescent gratification above true and eternal joy.

For their sake, let us pray. Their liberty is bound up with ours.

Friends,

It is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Our nation swims in the blood of innocents.

Cry out to God for mercy.

May the Holy Mother of God, Our Lady of Guadalupe, CRUSH THE HEAD OF THE SERPENT OF ABORTION!

Jesus, have mercy on us.

A Day of Prayer and Penance for Life in the dioceses of the United States

A Day of Prayer and Penance for Life
in the dioceses of the United States
January 22nd

Visitation
Flemish. Rogier van der Weyden (oil on oak panel, ca 1445)
Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig

A special Mass “For Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life” was confirmed by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments for use in the dioceses of the United States. This Mass may be used on occasions to celebrate the dignity of human life.  The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) §373 was altered to allow this Mass to be said on January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday), the day of penance for abortion:

GIRM 373: In all the Dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion.

The liturgical celebrations for this day may be the Mass “For Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life” (no. 48/1 of the Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions), celebrated with white vestments, or the Mass “For the Preservation of Peace and Justice” (no. 30 of the Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions), celebrated with violet vestments.”  (American adaptation) 

Mass for Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life

Readings: Readings of the day or any readings from the Lectionary for Ritual Masses, the "Mass for Peace and Justice"

Collect A
God our Creator,
We give thanks to you,
Who alone have the power to impart the breath of life
as you form each of us in our mother’s womb;
Grant, we pray,
that we, whom you have made stewards of creation,
may remain faithful to this sacred trust
and constant in safeguarding the dignity of every human life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. +Amen

Collect B
O God, who adorn creation with splendor and beauty
and fashion human lives in your image and likeness,
Awaken in every heart
reverence for the work of your hands,
and renew among your people
a readiness to nurture and sustain
your precious gift of human life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. +Amen

I've been praying daily for four years for a restoration of America's righteousness. Rosary first thing in the morning, Vespers and Compline at night, followed by Pro-Life meditation from Fr. Pavone's little book, novena prayers to St. Joseph, and a chapter from Imitation of Christ. Sunday at Mass, Father asked us to ADD something for Lent, instead of giving something up. So I'm adding the Litany of the Sacred Heart. He has added Adoration, although it is only one day a week, it's there! Praise God!

Sorry, gang. I'd like to be cheerful, but I can't. It's not so much SecState’s mendacity as it is the way the Obamatron’s thought she was, as one said, ‘The Secretary of Awesome’.

For We Have Made Lies our Refuge, and in Falsehood we Have Taken Shelter; ...

(Isa 28:14-22 RSV)
14 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers, who rule this people in Jerusalem!

15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we have an agreement; when the overwhelming scourge passes through it will not come to us; for we have made lies our refuge, and in falsehood we have taken shelter”;

16 therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: `He who believes will not be in haste.’

17 And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plummet; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the shelter.”

18 Then your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through you will be beaten down by it.

19 As often as it passes through it will take you; for morning by morning it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be sheer terror to understand the message.

20 For the bed is too short to stretch oneself on it, and the covering too narrow to wrap oneself in it.

21 For the LORD will rise up as on Mount Perazim, he will be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon; to do his deed — strange is his deed! and to work his work — alien is his work!

22 Now therefore do not scoff, lest your bonds be made strong; for I have heard a decree of destruction from the Lord GOD of hosts upon the whole land.
