A NEW EDITORIAL!

We were visiting several communities  at the beginning of  the  year. Please share our joy about the wonderful things which  we saw, by going to the  “Editorials” tab and see the  topmost article , titled:

Traditional contemplative   orders  in the USA  are here to stay, Deo  gratias! (3-8-2020)

The Season of Lent is ..

… a penitential  season, greeted with a  firm determination to engage in penitential practices,. which  we believe is something which is good for our soul and which makes us more able to  immerse ourselves more fully in the joys of Easter.

The  beautiful  Lenten Propers help us  to keep joyfully purposeful as we are  in the task  mortifying ourselves for the sake of  self-purification, for atonement for our personal sins and for those of the world

Her is a hymn from the Lenten  liturgy-  chanted at ad Matutinum

Onward, Christian soldiers!

 

 

 

In the   Season  of Epiphany  …  

… we are reflecting on the journey of the three Magi of the East, as led by the light of the star they journeyed  toward seeing the light -giving  King of the world, to lay their gifts at His feet.

Let us then ask for the graces   of this   holy  Season to see that  light   which God wants us to follow and by which we would perceive how to give the  gift most pleasing  to Our   Saviour – ourselves.

See the notes  on Epiphany in the tab of “Breviary notes” and  look at  the two hymns for the Season under the  tab of  “Devotions”!

As the Season of Advent begins…….

… and we are getting ready to prepare our homes for the Christmas festivities, let us also prepare our hearts for the arrival of the Christ child by getting rid of the  cobwebs of old attachments, sweeping away the debris of old sins by going to confession, lighting the fires of charity and practice singing by the practice of virtues so that when the  day of Christmas  arrives, our song will be pleasing to God.
