  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Agnes, Her Second Feast (Gueranger)

    01/27/2018 9:05:17 PM PST · by CMRosary
    Red Simple FIVE DAYS AFTER the martyrdom of the Virgin Emerentiana, the parents of the glorious Saint Agnes visited the tomb of their child during the night, there to weep and pray. It was the eighth day since her martyrdom. While they were thinking upon the cruel death, which, though it had enriched their child with a Martyr’s palm, had deprived them of her society—Agnes suddenly appeared to them: she was encircled with a bright light, and wore a crown on her head, and was surrounded by a choir of virgins of dazzling beauty. On her right hand, there...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Second Sunday After the Epiphany (Gueranger)

    01/13/2018 10:07:11 PM PST · by CMRosary
    Green Semidouble THE THIRD MYSTERY of the Epiphany shows us the completion of the merciful designs of God upon the world, at the same time that it manifests to us, for the third time, the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Star has led the soul to faith; the sanctified Waters of the Jordan have conferred purity upon her; the Marriage Feast unites her to her God. We have been considering, during this Octave, the Bridegroom revealing himself to the Spouse; we have heard him calling her to come to him from the heights of Libanus;...

    White Double of the First Class with Privileged Octave of third Order THE OFFICE OF LAUDS is finished: the Canticles of joy are ended, wherewith the Church thanks the Eternal Father for his having made to rise upon us the divine Sun of Justice. It is time to offer up the second Sacrifice, or, as it is called, the Mass of the Aurora. In the first, the Church celebrated the temporal Birth of the Word according to the flesh. In this, she is going to honor the second Birth of the same Son of God—a Birth full of grace...

    SECOND ANTIPHON O ADONAI, et dux domus Isral, qui Moysi in igne flamm rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti; veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extenso. O ADONAI, and leader of the house of Israel, who appearedst to Moses in the fire of the flaming bush, and gavest to him the law on Sinai; come and redeem us by thy outstretched arm. O SOVEREIGN LORD! O Adonai! come and redeem us, not by thy power, but by thy humility. Heretofore, thou didst show thy self to Moses thy servant in the midst of a mysterious flame; thou...

Domine, Deus meus es tu; exaltabo te, et confitebor nomini tuo: quoniam fecisti mirabilia, cogitationes antiquas fideles. Amen. Quia posuisti civitatem in tumulum, urbem fortem in ruinam, domum alienorum: ut non sit civitas, et in sempiternum non ædificetur. Super hoc laudabit te populus fortis; civitas gentium robustarum timebit te: quia factus es fortitudo pauperi, fortitudo egeno in tribulatione sua, spes a turbine, umbraculum ab æstu; spiritus enim robustorum quasi turbo impellens...

Ecce Dominus dissipabit terram: et nudabit eam, et affliget faciem ejus, et disperget habitatores ejus. Et erit sicut populus, sic sacerdos; et sicut servus, sic dominus ejus; sicut ancilla, sic domina ejus; sicut emens, sic ille qui vendit; sicut foenerator, sic is qui mutuum accipit; sicut qui repetit, sic qui debet. Dissipatione dissipabitur terra, et direptione prædabitur; Dominus enim locutus est verbum hoc. Luxit, et defluxit terra, et infirmata est; defluxit...

Emitte agnum, Domine, dominatorem terrae, de petra deserti ad montem filiae Sion. Et erit: sicut avis fugiens, et pulli de nido avolantes, sic erunt filiæ Moab in transcensu Arnon. Ini consilium, coge concilium; pone quasi noctem umbram tuam in meridie; absconde fugientes, et vagos ne prodas. Habitabunt apud te profugi mei; Moab, esto latibulum eorum a facie vastatoris: finitus est enim pulvis, consummatus est miser, defecit qui conculcabat terram. Et praeparabitur...

    AMIGO: I can hardly wait till Jesus comes in his kingdom. What a glorious day it will be! BIBLIANO: Houston, we have a problem. Jesus clearly taught in Matthew 16:27-28 that SOME OF HIS DISCIPLES WOULD LIVE TO SEE HIM COMING IN HIS KINGDOM. AMIGO: Hmmm. Must be some BIG misunderstanding. Thats not what Ive been taught by the TV rapture preachers. I watch em all the time. Maybe that passage is about the Transfiguration or Pentecost. BIBLIANO: Matthew 16:27-28 really cannot be the Transfiguration or Pentecost. This passage is about JUDGMENT and there was no judgment at the Transfiguration...

    For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will be the COMING of the Son of Man. . . . the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. . . . and they will see the Son of Man COMING on the CLOUDS of heaven with power and great glory. . . . Truly, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. (Matthew 24:27-34) Matthew 24 is packed with...

    Prophecy Questions Blog ^ | August 11, 2017 | Charles Meek
    Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth [land] will mourn because of Him. This passage from Revelation 1:7 is often read by Christians and simply assumed to be a future event. (Obviously, this hasnt happened yet!) Warning: the interpretation of this passage, read casually out of context, may not be as obvious as most Christians suppose. The context offers strong support for the preterist view, which is that this was fulfilled in AD 70 when Jesus came in judgment against apostate Israel. It...

    As soon as you perceive that the time for the rapture may be near, please do the following in context with Matthew 24 (since we must maintain our scriptural foundation): 1. Locate the nearest mountain. (If you are in Kansas, sorry, but you are in serious trouble.) "Let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains." 2. Make sure you have a full tank of gas so you can leave your city of residence "Let those in the city get out." 3. If you are temporarily out of town, think twice about returning home "Let those...

    And when He had said these things, as they were looking on, He was taken up [Greek EPAIRO], and a CLOUD received Him out of their sight. And while they were gazing into heaven as He went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come IN LIKE MANNER [Greek HOS TROPOS] as you saw him go into heaven. (Acts 1:9-11) This passage is one that futurists hold up to preterists to show that the Second...

    BIBLE PROPHECY INTRO (Cliff Notes Version) by Charles Meek SUMMARY: A common view of Bible prophecy is that Jesus will return bodily at the end of time to punish the reprobate and save the faithful (again). This is usually accepted without question. However, because false predictions about the Second Coming and end of the world are so prevalent, many Christians are increasingly willing to seriously re-examine whether this tradition is truly biblical. Old Testament prophecy of Jesus First Advent (Isaiah 53, etc.), was, of course, fulfilled by a bodily appearance. But, Second Coming/End Times prophecy may actually be ALL (or...

    Second Amendment Rights Donald J. Trump on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period. The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesnt create that right it ensures that the government cant take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendments purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple....

    The Battle of Athens TN, August 1-2, 1946 On 1-2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud -- forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government....
