  • [Catholic Caucus] The Holy Guardian Angels (Gueranger)

    10/01/2017 10:47:42 PM PDT · by CMRosary · 1 replies
    White Greater Double Although the solemnity of the 27th of September celebrates the praises of all the nine glorious choirs, yet the piety of the faithful, in the latter ages, desired to have a special day consecrated to the Guardian Angels. Several churches having taken the initiative, and kept the Feast under various rites and on different days, Paul V (1608) authorized its celebration ad libitum. Clement X (1670) established it by precept as a Feast of double rite on the 2nd of October, the first free day after Michaelmas, on which it thus remains in some way dependent....

    A Brief Reflection on the Ministry of the Angels Throughout Creation Msgr. Charles Pope • June 11, 2017 • The conclusion of the Book of Tobit on Saturday featured the Archangel Raphael revealing himself to Tobit and others and explaining his ministry to them. This post I write is not a full angelology, it is just a grateful reflection for God, his angels and his creation. Book-length treatments are necessary for a good angelology. If you are looking for a readable, and brief account of angelology I might recommend The Angels and Their Mission According to the Fathers of...

    Angels' knowledge Did God make the angels aware of the details of Christ’s incarnation, passion and resurrection? Msgr.CharlesPope 4/26/2017 Question: Did God let all the angels know of the details of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection before time began?— Peter Tate, Long Beach, California Answer: It is a common tradition in the Church, but not a biblical or defined teaching, that God revealed his plans for the Incarnation to the angels. But that tradition usually does not hold that the Lord revealed to them a detailed description of the events.The traditional understanding is that Lucifer, one of the highest-ranking angels,...

    "Having become . . . much better than the angels" (Heb. 1:4). Through a deft use of the Old Testament, the writer proves that Christ is the mediator of a greater covenant. Man is a wonderful and amazing creationhigher than plants, animals, and any other material creation in this world. But there are created beings even higher than manangels. Hebrews 2:9 shows this to be the case because when Jesus became a man, He was "made for a little while lower than the angels." After the fall of the rebellious angels under Lucifer, the angels in heaven were no longer...

    SAN DIEGO The Los Angeles Angels sought out a character reference on Tim Lincecum. They did not need to think twice about whom to call. They asked my opinion, said Bengie Molina, and I gave it to them straight-up. For all that Lincecum accomplished with Buster Posey, he always talks in glowing terms about Molina as the catcher who shepherded him as he broke into the big leagues, became his friend and support network besides his batterymate, and channeled his talents when he was at the height of his powers. While Molina does not hold an official title with...

Hamels pitched a three-hitter, Adrian Beltre hit a go-ahead homer and the Rangers beat the Angels 9-2 Sunday, eliminating Los Angeles from playoff contention. A year after their 95 losses were the most in the American League, two months after they were still eight games out of first place and three days after ensuring themselves a postseason spot, the Rangers wrapped up their sixth division title. Texas plays its first AL division series game since 2011 on...

    In John 5:43, Jesus declared:I have come in my Fathers name, and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.With the advent of Protestantism and theconfusion that followed, and that continues to this day, Christians, outside of the Catholic Church,have, at best, an incompleteunderstanding of the power of these words. When Jesus says, I come in my fathers name, he reveals the nature of the authority he possesses from God, the Father.We use this phraseat least, the in the name of partsimilarly in modern parlance in law enforcement when a police...
