On February  3rd 2021 in the church of  Saint íjospeh the  Worker in Tyler Texas  a  momentous event took place   – recitation of the Brigittine Divine  Office in the   manner, as it  was recited in the  the  15th and  16th century, before the virtual destruction of the double monasteries by the Protestant Reformation..

 If  God, so wills, this double Brigittine Office will be recited on a regular schedule by the Brigittini Servitores in  in Tyler when    the male branch is established, an event foreseen and hoped for, since  our. Constitution  states: „Brigittini Servitores may  be male or female” , By the infinite mercy of God, we have a seasoned  priest with experience  in religious life, who,  is  ready to join the  Brigittini Servitores.  

SOS- we need money  by June  20th 2021!

Our  prospective Brigittine Father has been granted  leave, ,from his  Archdiocese to come to Tyler  .Our bishop in Tyler  is agreeable, provided we show proof of having funds to cover all expenses   of Father for  a period three  years’

Here is the estimate:    The  amount to  cover all expenses    fo rnext three years: $166,800.00.If we receive $4,689.00 in monthly  pledges pledged  for  36 months we shall meet our goal. Could you please help ?

We   have never asked for money on these pages, for there was no burning need.  However, our

  bishop’s wish for financial guarantees needs to be obeyed.

May God bless all, who read this!

It is quite  likely that this  Holy Week will bring many graces to prayerful souls, because it has been ushered in by a triple focus on our Lady before Palm Sunday March  28th,.

On March  25th we celebrated the Annunciation.

On March 26th we commemorated the   Seven Sorrows of Our Lady.

On March 27th we commemorated the Feast of  Saint  john  Damascene, whose amputated right arm  has been miraculously reattached by Our Lady. Let us make most of it!

In Passiontide

 

… we are  invited to lift  the curtain of the Holy of Holies and with Our  Lady at our side, kneel in front of Jesus to compassionate His  suffering, for after rigorously kept Lenten fast we earned this  privilege.  Let us console Him with different tapes of gifts:, our  sorrows  -,especially for  our sins-

our joys,  prayers for our own sanctification, and for the sanctification and material and spiritual help to others, conversion of nonbelievers  and last, but not  least, thanksgiving for our Catholic faith , including companionship  of angels,  Saints in  heaven and fellow believers on this earth..

 

 

 

The Season of Lent …

… is only a remote preparation  for Easter, but in essence,  a preparation  for  Passiontide. where we see the price paid for our salvation.

If we see somebody’s wounds, we can console him, but he may not show them to others than his friends….

The friends of Our Lord make themselves attractive by purifying themselves with  fasting and other penitential practices, expressing  meanwhile their  love for Him  frequently in prayers.

Greetings!

 

This opening   page has been enveloped in silence. the reason -my incapacity  as tohow to figure out to get back to the “Classical” mode, as opposed to the block system for this opening page.  I was able to handle the pages, though.,  adding an  editorial..  The  Breviary notes page has also been updated. So let us rejoice, the silence is over, Deo gratias!

 

In this Holy Season of Christmas…

.. and during its wonderful Octave , with so many Saints with different types of sanctity, enrich our souls!

I cannot give you a picture here, for I have not found a way yet to get to the calssic system, as opposed to blocks. please pray that I shall do soon! however, i can handle the page, so the Breviary notes have been update. There is also something interesting under the ” Új cikkek, hírek” tab under the “Magyaroknak ..heading- Hungarian Christmas songs,, a new one for each day of the Octave.

In these turbulent times with its many crosses

In these turbulent times with its many  crosses

Let us be consoled as we console Our Lord   offering up prayers and sacrifices

  • in atonement for  out own  sins confessed in sacramental confession with a contrite heart,  .  
  • for the conversion of all who sinned against Him
  • Asking for graces not to sin , acknowledging our frailty of not being able to do it without His help

Let us pray with the words of King David presented I psalm 50

With the heart rendering musical setting of the Allegri Miserere:
