In the splendour of the Easter Season…

Easter8

As we walk in the light, let us grow in graces.  Before this  season, the accent was on eradicating sins, sinful tendencies,  and  faults . By all means, let us continue to  examine our consciences and pull up the weeds, but in addition, let us also work  on  acquiring  more and greater virtues  !

Happy  Easter, everyone!

I heartily commend looking  at the  section/tab of “Liturgical  notes “ for more information about the  peculiarities of the liturgy of this  Season.

In honour of the Feast of Saint Joseph,…

.St.Joseph4

.. here is a beautiful poem by  Mr. Brandon Campbell:

Saint Joseph, Mirror of Patience,

Wed of the Mother of God.

Blessed thou Light of Patriarchs,

 And blessed is the vigil of thy dreams – save Jesus!

Joseph most Just, Joseph most Chaste,

   Guide us from error to a happy death. 

Amen

To get the full flavour of this prayer, here is a note by its author:

““…the inspiration was clearly the Hail Mary prayer. “

 

 

 

Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice!

Our  Lady strikes agian!

On February 11, the Holy Father then sent a decree signed by his own hand .

Decree of Pope Francis confirming the use of the liturgical books of 1962.
The Holy Father Francis grants to each and everyone of the members of the Society of Apostolic Life ” Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter “, founded on July 18, 1988 and declared “of pontifical right” by the Holy See, the faculty to celebrate the sacrifice of the Mass, to administer the sacraments and other sacred rites, and to perform the Divine Office, according to the typical editions of the liturgical books in force in the year 1962, that is to say the Missal, the Ritual, the Pontifical and the Roman Breviary.
They can use this faculty in their own churches and oratories; everywhere else, they will use it only with the consent of the local ordinary, except for the celebration of private Mass.
Without prejudice to what has been said above, the Holy Father suggests that, as far as possible, the provisions of the motu proprio Traditionis Custodes should also be taken into account.
