Ann Barnhardt: "I’m hard pressed to think of anything more romantic than to be told by a courter that he had been praying for me every day since childhood"


 

Ann Barnhardt beautifully wrote in the post "On the Feast of the Betrothal of St. Joseph and the Blessed Virgin Mary, remember that it is a wonderful practice for children, youth & unmarried adults to pray for their future spouse every day": 

In the same vein, let us remember to teach children, youth and adults who are marriageable, to pray for their future spouse, even as yet unknown, every day.

I’m hard pressed to think of anything more romantic than to be told by a courter that he had been praying for me every day since childhood (or she for him) – and not merely as a future friend… le sigh. Not to mention the reality of the efficacy of those prayers. God is not limited by time, so yes, we absolutely can and should pray for people we haven’t met yet, with the future spouse being at the top of that list, future children, and future friends.

And then when you meet them, you can have the deep pleasure of telling them that you have been praying for them for years, and know that it’s true.

Happy Feast of the Betrothal of St. Joseph and the Blessed Virgin Mary!

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."
