Itala Mela Beatified COMMUNIO - June 17, 2017 ... day prior to her anniversary of death so not to conflict the feast of St. Catherine of Siena, one of the patron saints of Italy. In previous posts on Mela, I noted she was an Italian laywoman who eventually found her vocation not as a Benedictine nun but as a Benedictine Oblate. Itala Mela was a well-known mystic of the Church, her popularity certainly grew following her death. She was the author of several theological writings that focused on the Blessed ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2017/06/itala-mela-beatified/

No one did more to foster a devotion to Christ's real presence in these crucial centuries than Saint Norbert of Xanten: founder of the Praemonstratensian Order . Four hundred years before the Protestant Reformation, a wandering preacher known as Tanchelm had caused many people in the city of Antwerp to deny the saving power of the Eucharist and the authority of the bishop. St Norbert was invited by Bishop Burchard of Cambrai to take a few trusted disciples ...http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2017/06/a-medieval-feast-for-modern-man.html

HEIMANN - June 15, 2017 Today, June 15 is the feast day of St. Germaine Cousin, a simple and devout young girl who lived in Pibrac, France in the late 1500s. She was born in 1579 to a humble family.

St. Basil the Great A CATHOLIC LIFE - June 14, 2017 ... Trinity, the very same arguments invented by Arius against the Divinity of the Word. The Council of Constantinople, putting the finishing stroke to that of Nicæa, formulated the faith of the Churches, in Him who proceedeth from the Father, no less than doth the Word Himself, Who is adored and glorified conjointly with the Father and the Son. Basil was not there on the day of victory; prematurely exhausted by austerities and labors, he had been sleeping the sleep of peace ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/qM5VYG0sCtk/st-basil-great.html

The Miraculous Responsory of St Anthony of Padua NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - June 13, 2017 ... miracula is the eighth and final responsory of the Franciscan Office of St. Anthony of Padua, whose feast is kept today, the anniversary of his death in the year 1231. It is traditionally known as the "miraculous" responsory, from the once-common custom of reciting it to ask for St. Anthony's miraculous intervention.

St. Anthony of Padua, Priest 8; Doctor of the Church BIG C CATHOLICS - June 12, 2017 Mention the name "Saint Anthony" in a roomful of Catholics, and you are likely to be regaled with story after story of things, people and pets that have been found, often in what seem to be miraculous circumstances, through his intercession. And although this saint is the patron of lost items and a thaumaturgist, or miracle worker, many people may not realize that he is also a Doctor of the Church who had a burning desire to imitate Christ ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/06/st-anthony-of-padua-priest-doctor-of.html

St. Anthony of Padua ATONEMENTONLINE - June 12, 2017 The Feast of St. Anthony of Padua is on June 13th, and it's a pretty big deal for us here in the city that bears his name. It was on St. Anthony's Day in 1691 that the Franciscan fathers arrived at a small Indian village near the river, and named the settlement after him. From that tiny beginning, San Antonio is now the seventh largest city in the United States, and as far as I'm concerned, a wonderful place to live. St. Anthony was born in Portugal and ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2017/06/st-anthony-of-padua.html

Sacred Heart of Jesus Noven 2017 Begins June 14th BIG C CATHOLICS - June 11, 2017 The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated 19 days after Pentecost. We will begin praying this novena on Wednesday, June 14th. During this novena, we will reflect on Jesus' love for all of us as we pray for our hearts to be conformed to His Sacred Heart.

Saint Ephrem, "The Harp of the Holy Spirit" BIG C CATHOLICS - June 8, 2017 Although Saint Ephrem (or Ephraim) lived in the 4th century, there is much about him and his life that strikes a contemporary note. Born in Nisibis, Mesopotamia (present day Syria) around the year 306, he is the only Syrian recognized as a Doctor of the Church. His background, which was Asian/ African rather than Greek, afforded him a different worldview than many of his contemporaries, one of whom was St. Athanasius. His theology and insights into the ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/06/saint-ephrem-harp-of-holy-spirit.html

Saint William of York, Archbishop BIG C CATHOLICS - June 7, 2017 The life of William of York could have been taken from the pages of a modern tabloid. All the elements of a scandal were present— bribery, suspected sexual misconduct, undue influence on the part of those in power—but, in the end, William proved himself to be both a gentle and holy man, one who was able to forgive those who had sought to destroy and discredit him. William was born in England in the 10th century, into a family that had at least ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/06/saint-william-of-york-archbishop.html

The Curious Tale of Florentius and the Bear ~ Early 6th Century Italy GLORIA ROMANORUM - June 7, 2017 A Hermit with a Bear by Mikhail Nesterov (1925). Monday was the feast of Saint Florentius, one of the martyrs killed during the reign of the Roman emperor Decius in the mid-3rd century AD. Given that I operate under the blogonym "Florentius", my ears always perk up a little when I hear the name. Unfortunately, little is known of this Florentius other than that he was martyred under Decius near Perugia along with companions named Marcellinus, ...http://gloriaromanorum.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-curious-tale-of-florentius-and-bear.html

Saint Norbert of Xanten, Bishop and Founder BIG C CATHOLICS - June 5, 2017 Saint Norbert was another saint whose life did not begin in the same spirit of holiness with which it ended. Born in the Rhineland in 1080, Norbert became almoner (one who distributed alms to the needy, especially on behalf of a church, monastery, or wealthy family) to Henry V, Emperor of Germany. Although his role entailed spiritual duties, he spent his time at court pursuing worldly pleasures.

One Other to Send YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - June 4, 2017 Memorial of Saint Boniface, Bishop and Martyr On our festival of Pentecost, the Feast of Weeks, a fine dinner was prepared for me, and I reclined to eat. The table was set for me, and when many different dishes were placed before me, I said to my son Tobiah: "My son, go out and try to find a poor man from among our kinsmen exiled here in Nineveh. If he is a sincere worshiper of God, bring him back with you, so that he can share this meal with me. Indeed, son, ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/06/one-other-to-send.html

Oil Lamps BLOG OF THE DORMITION - June 4, 2017 ... oil lamps in front of the icons on the icon screen. We used to burn votive candles, but some time ago – more than a year ago – we replaced these with oil lamps, which is more traditional for us. I had not had very much experience working with oil lamps of this kind. They tried to introduce them at the seminary while I was there, but they kept smoldering and going out. We couldn't figure out the problem, so they were soon abandoned in favor of more ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2017/06/oil-lamps-and-life-in-spirit.html

Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions "They left this life in triumph and entered God's eternal city with joy." It is providential that the feast day of a group of martyrs who were put to death for refusing King Mwanga of Uganda homosexual advances is celebrated during what has come to be known as Gay Pride Month. Though many Christians were killed by Mwanga, ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-african-proto-martyrs-of-uganda.html

Feast of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions HAPPY CATHOLIC* - June 3, 2017 ... place at Namugongo, just outside Kampala. Catholic Culture I am not sure where I first heard of St. Charles Lwanga and his companions but I think it may have been in My Life With the Saints by James Martin. (Martin supplies the reading in honor of the feast day.) This is a bit, but do go read it all because there is a good amount of background for context. They were marched to Namugongo, where, bound with ropes, shackles, iron rings and slave ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2017/06/feast-of-st-charles-lwanga-and.html

You Follow Me YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - June 3, 2017 Memorial of Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions, Martyrs But when the Jews objected, I was obliged to appeal to Caesar, even though I had no accusation to make against my own nation. This is the reason, then, I have requested to see you and to speak with you, for it is on account of the hope of Israel that I wear these chains." He remained for two full years in his lodgings.
