  • [Catholic Caucus] The Vigil/Epiphany; Commemoration of Saint Telesphorus, Pope/Martyr (Gueranger)

    01/04/2018 9:38:49 PM PST · by CMRosary · 1 replies
    White Semidouble (Privilege of the Second Class) THE FEAST OF CHRISTMAS is over; the five Octaves are closed; and we are on the Eve of the Solemnity of our Lord’s Epiphany. We must spend this fifth of January in preparing ourselves for the Manifestation which Jesus, the Angel of the Great Counsel, is about to make to us of his glory. A few more hours, and the Star will stand still in the heavens, and the Magi will be seeking for admission into the stable at Bethlehem. This Vigil is not like that of Christmas, a day of penance....

    Violet Simple CHRISTMAS begins to glimmer on the horizon. The last Sunday after Pentecost has given us the closing instructions of the moveable Cycle. Beginning with the twenty-seventh of this month, the present days belong in some years to the new Cycle, in others to the one which is ending. The last Lesson from the Scripture of the Time ends with the solemn declaration of the last of the Prophets, announcing the approach of a new era: From the rising of the sun even to the going down, my Name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place...

    Violet   LET US prepare our souls for the graces heaven is about to shower upon the earth in return for its homage. Tomorrow the Church will be so overflowing with joy that she will seem to be already in possession of eternal happiness; but today she appears in the garb of penance, confessing that she is still an exile. Let us fast and pray with her; for are not we too pilgrims and strangers in this world, where all things are fleeting and hurry on to death? Year by year, as the great solemnity comes round, it has...

    Pondering Some of the Teachings of the Easter Vigil in its Afterglow Msgr. Charles Pope • April 18, 2017 • The Easter Vigil so recently celebrated provides a rich fare for reflection. Alas, its memories pass so quickly. The shadowy yet wonderful Easter Vigil is the greatest and most elaborate liturgy of the Church year.Due to its length and late hour, many Catholics have never rejoiced in the somber glow of its initial moments or in the blaze of glory and sacraments that follow. It features a presentation of the dramatic battle between darkness and light; the light wins,...

    Father, we come to you in prayer with all the confusion and uncertainty surrounding our Country's collective life, and in our personal lives. Please protect our leaders who are trying earnestly to do what is right for our country. Let those who lie, cheat and steal from us in the name of 'serving' be exposed for what they are. We pray for a cloak of protection for our elected President, Donald Trump, and for the people who surround him. Protect and comfort his family. Guide him in this enormous task he has taken on. Amen

    TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (KMOX) Concerned residents of Town and Country have planned a candlelight vigil for deer that have been killed in the St. Louis suburb. The city hired sharp shooters to kill urban deer, and organizers say after Town and Country spent thousands of dollars of public monies to kill deer over the last several years, deer-and-car collisions remain about the same.

    The fifth night of demonstrations in support of gunned down Ferguson, Missouri teen Michael Brown saw scores of protesters marching through the streets of New York in a vigil that culminated in Times Square Thursday night. Tensions flared as some protestors attempted to shove their way through a police barricade set up in their path toward the beating heart of the city. Police held their own and tempers soon calmed, but as night gripped New York, the already congested Times Square ground to a halt as thousands flowed into the streets to demand an end to police brutality and militarization...

    Two men were injured Tuesday night in a drive-by shooting on a busy north Minneapolis street during a memorial for a slain Brooklyn Park man. The shooting happened a little after 7 p.m. near W. Broadway and Bryant Avenue N., said Sgt. Steve McCarty, a spokesman for Minneapolis police. The two men who were shot were taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with noncritical injuries, McCarty said. No arrests have been made. The men were part of a group of about 30 people who gathered outside on a sidewalk on W. Broadway in memory of Haywood Eaton, who...

    Defiant parishioners waging tireless vigils for the churches they love now eight years and running are being warned by their archdiocese that the end is near, but they still vow to fight on. We paid for this church, said Maryellen Rogers, a parishioner at St. Francis X. Cabrini in Scituate. We built it. The archdiocese took out a mortgage in the 1970s we paid off. And we believe we are the rightful owners of this church. But the Archdiocese of Boston has signaled the rogue worshippers are testing the goodwill of the hierarchy. The cardinals been patient, archdiocese...
