Pope Leo XIII

Pope Leo XIII was born Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci in Carpineto Romano, near Rome in 1810 and was ordained a catholic priest in 1837. He always lived in the real world, as a young priest he had the courage to confront the power of the local mafia in the city of Benevento; and he had the human sentiment to care for the poor and the ill in Perugia.

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil. Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. More »

His Vision

One day (October 13), after celebrating Mass, the aged Pope Leo XIII was in conference with the Cardinals when suddenly he sank to the floor in a deep swoon. Physicians who hastened to his side could find no trace of his pulse and feared that he had expired. However, after a short interval the Holy Father regained consciousness and exclaimed with great emotion:\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" More »

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

In the last couple of days we have been reading about the Ark of the Covenant; and the Temple of Ancient Israel; and King Solomon (cf 1 Kings 8 v 1-30).

The Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament is a prefigure of Our Lord Jesus present in the Tabernacle among us in our Catholic Churches all over the world; The Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament is also a prefigure of the life, times and vocation the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of God.

We have previously reflected on this here, here, here, here and here.

We must always give thanks to God for the presence among us – sinful men and women – of his Divine Son, Jesus Christ.

It is love that keeps the Real Presence  among us, despite the human follies of 2000 years.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

The Spirit says come!

COME LORD JESUS!

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

As part of the Second Reading at Sunday Mass:

 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received,

that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures,
that he was buried,
that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures,


and that he appeared to Cephas,
then to the twelve.

Then he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time,
most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.

Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.
For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle,
because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am,
and his grace toward me was not in vain.
On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them,
though it was not I, but the grace of God which is with me.


11 
Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.”
(cf 1 Corinthians 16 v 3-11)

And so St. Paul emphasizes to the Corinthians that what he preached and what the other Apostles of Christ preached are one and the same; so also what we (Christians) believe must be one and the same.

Brothers and sisters, may we all learn, from the Apostle to the Gentiles, that Christian Unity built around the primacy of Cephas (St. Simon Peter) is of great importance in living the Apostolic Faith.

For it was Our Lord Jesus Christ himself who singled-out St. Simon Peter, and said to him in the Gospel Reading (cf Luke 5):

“Do not be afraid;
from now on you will be fisher of men.”

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us

Speculations are rife that papal documents due to be released on the last Synod that took place in Rome – Vatican Hill (in October 2015) will go against centuries-old Church teachings and permit Holy Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried. Various opinions are being offered.

Now what are faithful Catholics to do under such circumstance?

Answer:

1 Stay calm. Precisely because error can never last in the Holy Church built by Our Lord Jesus Christ on the Solid Rock that is St. Simon Peter.

2 Be rest assured that any departure from the 2000 year old dogmas of the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church will NOT last. Such departures will NOT outlive such papacy. Rather the error will depart with the departure of the particular papacy.

And if it outlives such papacy, the error will EXPIRE before a decade is over. In the End-Times in which we live in, the time indeed is very short for all false prophets and all false prophesies.

3 Stay united to the Chair of St. Simon Peter through thick and thin; stay focused

O Lord Jesus Christ, you are our shepherd, take care of us forever.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

The Spirit says come!
