Give as if every pasture in the mountains of Ireland belonged to you. --Saint Aidan

  True charity consists in putting up with all one's neighbor's faults, never being surprised by his weakness,
and being inspired by the least of his virtues. -- St Therese of Lisieux


Let us keep our eyes fixed on the New Jerusalem, where death will be no more.
It was such a pilgrimage to La Louvesc that St John Vianney, the Cure d' Ars, made in 1806:
he ascribed to St Francis Regis (June 16) the realization of his vocation to the priesthood.


Narrative: The Holy Virgin gestures to her Divine Son, directing our attention and adoration to Him. This classic pose of the Mother of God is known as the Hodigitria, that is the “Guide” or “Indicator of the way.” The icon combines a dignified and restrained realism with the traditional symbolism of iconography, reminiscent of the Moscow school of iconography in the nineteenth century.
The three stars on the Virgin’s mantle represent her virginity before, during and after the birth of Jesus. Although a child, Jesus is dressed as an adult, holds a scroll and blesses the beholder. The Greek letters “IC XC” are the abbreviation for “Jesus Christ”and “MP ØY” are the abbreviation for “Mother of God.”

We never know, when we get into purgatory, whom we're going to meet, scolding us for having stopped praying for them!"

December 10
No my dear children, we need never fear that the Mass hinders us in the fulfillment of our temporal affairs; it is altogether the other way around. We may be sure that all will go better and that even our business will succeed better than if we have the misfortune not to assist at Mass. -- St. John Vianney

      Because of prayers during the campaign 2016, 872 babies were spared from abortion
when their mothers chose life at the last possible moment.
They were scheduled to be aborted ... but they are alive today --
   and often it was the sight of faithful people praying outside the abortion center that made all the difference in the world.
Since 40 Days for Life started as a coordinated effort in 2007,
we are aware of 12,668 children whose mothers had a change of heart and said "yes" to life.


 We are the defenders of true freedom.
  May our witness unveil the deception of the "pro-choice" slogan.
ampaign saves lives Shawn Carney Campaign Director www.40daysforlife.com
Please help save the unborn they are the future for the world

It is a great poverty that a child must die so that you may live as you wish
-- Mother Teresa

 Saving babies, healing moms and dads; 'The Gospel of Life'
Pray that when those representing Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups
see volunteers for 40 Days for Life, they see ambassadors of Christ,
and may each volunteer be consciously aware at all times we represent Him.
