Friday in the Whitsun Embertide RECTA RATIO - May 20, 2016 Today is an Ember Day, a day of penace as we prepare for the major feast of Corpus Christi next Thursday and mark the transition of the season from Spring to Summer.

Ember Alert! RECTA RATIO - May 17, 2016 This Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday constitute the Whitsun Embertide. Embertides are days of increased prayer, alms giving, fasting and abstinence as the Church marks the transition from one season to another. The other three Embertides are in preparation for a great feast. This one comes, oddly, in the octave of one. Why the Whitsun Embertide does not come before Whitsunday, I have no idea.http://rectaratio.blogspot.com/2016_05_15_archive.html#5527832081026918905

You Can't Make a Silk Purse Out of a Sow's Ear ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - May 14, 2016 Attendance at Mass, regular confession, spiritual exercises, fasting, and prayer are wonderful vehicles of grace but if we think pious activities will sanctify us, we will only appear to be holy on the outside like the Pharisees: Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men's bones and every kind of filth.

EASTER & PENTECOST OCTAVES (including Fasting and Abstinence) FR HUNWICKE'S MUTUAL ENRICHMENT - March 28, 2016 Before the series of rolling reforms which began under Pius XII, the great Octaves of Easter and Pentecost did not contain undifferentiated days. What I mean is: Monday and Tuesday were more special than the rest of the week. They were Doubles of the First Class, while the remaining days were only semidoubles and could admit commemorations. Students of the Book of Common Prayer will remember thathttp://liturgicalnotes.blogspot.com/2016/03/easter-pentecost-octaves-including.html
