A prayer

Ever get depressed...I mean REALLY depressed?

Me neither. But if you ever do, read this.

Another Thing I Never Knew

 


I had no idea that Holy Water has salt in it. Not just any kind of salt, but BLESSED salt. And according to this site, "modest amounts of salt may be sprinkled in one’s bedroom, or across thresholds to prevent burglary, in cars for safety, etc." I'm not sure exactly what kind of evil he thinks is is lurking in your bedroom but I guess better safe than sorry.

Well, THIS is Embarrassing...

Catholic Saint or New Orleans Saint? I got 7 out of 12. But only really KNEW one (John Bosco).

Hey! Maybe I will eventually have all of them correct! I mean, we all have the potential for sainthood, right?

Feast of Saint Kigwe, February 8

Here's what Catholic Online says about her:

"A Welsh saint, sometimes called Ciwg, Cuick, Kewe, or Kigwse. Nothing is known about her..."

Fire Harry Knox!



Although I kind of like that as a 4th degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus, I am, "a foot soldier in the discredited army of oppression."

Feast Day of St. Mel

An Irish saint who not only KNEW St. Patrick, but was his nephew!

St. Mel lived with his Aunt Lupait, but when slanderous rumors began to fly St. Patrick showed up to investigate. To prove their innocence St. Mel pulled a live fish out of a field he was plowing and Lupait carried hot coals without being burned. St. Patrick was impressed - but he told St. Mel that in the future he should do his fishing in the sea and his plowing on land, and that he should move out of the house and lived far away from Aunt Lupait.

And so it was.

Big...er, Father...Is Watching You!

"WARSAW (Reuters) – A Polish priest has installed an electronic reader in his church for schoolchildren to leave their fingerprints in order to monitor their attendance at mass, the Gazeta Wyborcza daily said on Friday."

It's not what you think. Here's the rest of the story:

"The pupils will mark their fingerprints every time they go to church over three years and if they attend 200 masses they will be freed from the obligation of having to pass an exam prior to their confirmation, the paper said."

February 1, Feast of St. Brigid

 



The patroness of Ireland and I missed it! And, yes...she did know St. Patrick. As a matter of fact, she was baptized by him!

Ni bu Sanct Brigid suanach
Ni bu huarach im sheire Dé,
Sech ni chiuir ni cossens
Ind nóeb dibad bethath che.

(Saint Brigid was not given to sleep,
Nor was she intermittent about God's love;
Not merely that she did not buy, she did not seek for
The wealth of this world below, the holy one.)
