Short Feature: Magic Mummy THE B-MOVIE CATECHISM - June 12, 2017 ... times (there's a Mary of Rome referenced in Romans who may or may not be the same woman, hence the possibility of seven Marys). The thing is, though, all six of the Marys in the New Testament, even the little known ones, are recognized as Saints by the Church. Sure, Mary, the mother of John Mark, isn't really the patron saint of anything and you'll have a heck of a time finding a holy card with her face on it, but she's a Saint just the same. And in the end, isn't that the ...http://b-moviecat.blogspot.com/2017/06/short-feature-magic-mummy.html

St. Anthony of Padua ATONEMENTONLINE - June 12, 2017 ... of theology. St. Anthony of Padua was such a forceful preacher that shops closed when he came to town, and people stayed all night in church to be present for his sermons. He became associated with Padua because he made this city his residence and the center of his great preaching mission. After a series of Lenten sermons in 1231, Anthony's strength gave out and he went into seclusion at Camposanpiero but soon had to be carried back to Padua. He did not reach the city but was taken to the Poor ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2017/06/st-anthony-of-padua.html

GLORIA ROMANORUM - June 9, 2017 ... television audience which, at that time, rivaled the top-rated Milton Berle Show , Sheen presented an episode of his show, Life is Worth Living, entitled "The Death of Stalin." I wish I could find footage of this particular episode, but it does not appear to exist anywhere online.

He lived through three sieges laid to Nisibis by the Persians.

Does the Christian Tradition Have a Problem With Smiling and Laughing? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - May 29, 2017 I once heard a speaker claim that one of the reasons it is hard for ordinary Christian families to see themselves in the Holy Family is that all the famous paintings we see of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph always show them utterly serious, dour, and pious, without making room for smiling, laughter, and recreation. It is an interesting claim. On the one hand, nearly 2,000 years of Christian art, Eastern and Western, concur in rarely portraying Jesus smiling, even as a child; he ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/bnJ98OYQqDk/does-christian-tradition-have-problem.html

February 20, 1920, at the age of 9; both were victims of the great influenza pandemic which raged though the years 1918-20, one of the greatest natural catastrophes in human history.

If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that's delusional." Problem: Trump almost certainly did have the largest inaugural crowd in history.

After spending his earlier years at the famous monastery on the island of Lérins, Caesarius was sent to Arles for health reasons; the local bishop, a kinsman of his, was so impressed by him that he asked the abbot of Lérins, St Porcarius, to release him to clerical service. In due course, Caesarius was elected bishop by popular acclamation in 502 A.D., and served in that role until his death 40 years later, at the age of about 72.
