The Bright Side

On the bright side, those of us who have been chosen, from all eternity, to live in these times will be granted the graces we need to be faithful, if we accept them, and will have a more glorious crown in the Kingdom for having to struggle with the devil unchained. "Where sin abounds, grace does more abound." And furthermore, God is not mocked.

The Seven Archangels

Since every Tuesday is traditionally dedicated to honoring the Holy Angels, I thought I would share an interesting post about the seven archangels. From Faith Warriors:
The most powerful angels are the seven Archangels—“And I saw seven Angels standing in the sight of God…” Revelation 8:2 (Read more.)

Novena to St. Anthony of Padua


THE MIRACULOUS RESPONSORY OF ST. ANTHONY
By St. Bonaventure
1. If then you ask for miracles,
Death, error, all calamities,
The leprosy and demons fly,
And health succeeds infirmities.
Chorus:
The sea obeys, and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore,
Whilst treasures lost are found again,
When young and old thine aid implore.
2. All dangers vanish at thy prayer,
And direst need doth quickly flee;
Let those who know thy power proclaim,
Let Paduans say: "These are of thee."
Chorus:
The sea obeys, and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore,
Whilst treasures lost are found again,
When young and old thine aid implore.
3. To Father, Son, may glory be,
And Holy Spirit eternally.
Chorus:
The sea obeys, and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore,
Whilst treasures lost are found again,
When young and old thine aid implore.
Pray for us, St. Anthony,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
O God! May the votive commemoration of St. Anthony, Thy Confessor and Doctor, be a source of joy to Thy Church, that she may always be fortified with spiritual assistance and may deserve to possess eternal joy. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
