  • [Catholic Caucus] Dedication of the Basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles (Gueranger)

    11/17/2017 9:14:45 PM PST · by CMRosary · 5 replies
    White Greater Double QUOD DUCE TE MUNDUS SURREXIT IN ASTRA TRIUMPHAMS, HANC CONSTANTINUS VICTOR TIBI CONDIDIT AULAM. Because the world under thy conduct has risen triumphant to the very heavens, Constantine the conqueror has built this temple in thy honor. This inscription stood in letters of gold over the triumphal arch in the ancient Vatican Basilica. Never did the Roman genius frame a more magnificent utterance in so few words; never did the greatness of Simon Bar-Jona appear to such advantage on the seven hills. In 1506 the great arch that had looked down upon twelve centuries of prostrate...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Sunday After the Octave of All Saints: The Dedication of Churches (Gueranger)

    11/11/2017 9:06:26 PM PST · by CMRosary
    Domum Dei decet sanctitudo: Sponsum ejus Christum adoremus in ea. Such is the Invitatory Antiphon, which sums up the liturgical thought of the day: “Holiness becometh the House of God: let us adore therein Christ her Spouse.”What is this mystery of a house that is at the same time a bride?—Our churches are holy because they belong to God, and on account of the celebration of the holy Sacrifice therein, and the prayer and praise offered to the divine Guest who dwells there. More truly than the figurative tabernacle or the ancient temple, they are separated, solemnly and forever...

    White Double of the Second Class IN THE fourth century of our era, the cessation of persecution seemed to give the world a foretaste of its future entrance into eternal peace. “Glory to the Almighty! Glory to the Redeemer of our souls!” wrote Eusebius at the opening of the tenth and last book of his History. Himself a witness of the triumph, he describes the admirable spectacle everywhere displayed by the dedication of the new sanctuaries. In city after city the Bishops assembled, and crowds flocked together. From nation to nation, the goodwill of mutual charity, of common faith,...
  • Hogan dedicates ICC to former Maryland governor Robert Ehrlich

    It’s hard to know whether Maryland’s Intercounty Connector, also known as the ICC and Route 200, will ever become informally known as Ehrlich Highway or the Ehrlich Connector, but it now has a shot. On Thursday, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) dedicated the 18.8-mile toll road to his Republican predecessor and onetime boss, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., whom he credited with reviving and championing a road mired for decades in political controversy. “It wasn’t until Governor Bob Ehrlich made it a top priority of his administration that the Intercounty Connector project finally moved forward and became a reality,”...

    Saudi Arabia rolled out the red carpet for US President Donald Trump on his inaugural overseas trip, but a moment involving a glowing orb had observers scratching their heads. Trump attended the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology on Sunday alongside his host, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, reported the state-run Saudi Press Agency. As the lights dimmed, the three leaders officially "activated" the new center by placing their hands on an illuminated globe as a four-minute introduction video displayed on large screens behind them, according to local media.

    Church of Christ Articles ^ | 3/07/2012 | Travis Main
    Jesus, the messiah of mankind, lived a life in the flesh like no other man. His words and his actions perfectly fit the pattern prescribed by God the Father (John 5:30, John 12:49-50). That all men save Jesus fall short of the Glory of God is factual (Romans 3:23). Yet, many who declare themselves prepared for faithful commitment to God soon find themselves transgressing against their vows to serve him. Their declaration of service comes before considering the cost – their life (Galatians 2:20). Jesus spoke about this in the parable of the sower. Matthew 13:20-21 – And he that...

  • The Rite of [a Catholic Church] Dedication Now [Catholic Caucus]

    The Rite of Dedication Now The word dedication comes from an intensive form of the Latin verb dicere, to speak. It means "to speak out, to announce, to proclaim."The Rite of Dedication is long, complicated, and anything but a formality. In dedicating a church building, we proclaim with Jacob, "This is the house of God and the gate of Heaven" (Gen. 28,17).And because the Church symbolizes ourselves, we announce that we too are houses in which he dwells.And since this is the Cathedral of the Local Church, it represents all of the members this Local Church who in this dedication...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2008 No one has to tell Dawn Halfaker the value of hiring veterans, especially those disabled in combat. She is one. A U.S. Military Academy at West Point graduate and former Army military police officer, Halfaker was serving in Iraq in 2004 when a rocket-propelled grenade struck her convoy. Critically injured, Halfaker was evacuated from combat to recover at Walter Reed Army Medical Center here. Her right arm was amputated. Two years later, medically retired from the service, she began her job hunt. Nothing seemed to fit, Halfaker said, and she missed the intense environment...

    Smithfield Maj. Dennis McCool is no stranger to war. A retired Army officer, McCool, 60, began his 20-year Army career at the height of an unpopular war. His deployment to Vietnam, where more than 58,000 American soldiers died, lasted for several years. I have lived for 38 years with a burden that every Vietnam veteran carries, says McCool, a native of Sanford, Fla. That burden is that we did not win. It was not our fault... Since returning home in December, the trio has embarked on another mission: to rally support for the troops. They set out on March...

    A frail Billy Graham, using a walker and leaning on his son Franklin, was honored Thursday by three former U.S. presidents as they dedicated a museum built to be a "living crusade" that will carry on his work after the minister is gone. The $27 million Billy Graham Library traces the evangelist's journey from farm boy to the most widely heard minister of all time. He befriended every U.S. president since Harry Truman and preached in person to more than 210 million. "This building behind me is just a building," Graham said in brief remarks. "It's an instrument, a tool...

BY MICHELLE KAUFMAN The most inspirational team in the Orange Bowl this year, the one that best exemplifies courage and willpower, is not Louisville or Wake Forest. It is the team of Patrick Henry Hughes and his father, Patrick John Hughes, who will perform a feat more remarkable than anything displayed by the extraordinary athletes on the Dolphin Stadium field.
