He was a monk and a mystic who exerted an unusual amount of influence over the laity by obeying the call of God. Born on Christmas eve, 1807, in the village of Sallent, in Catalonia, ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/10/st-anthony-mary-claret-what-was-secret.html

When Catholic Leaders Abandon the Faithful CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 8, 2014 ... begins with a Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral, the seat of the archbishop of New York and the mother church of an archdiocese comprising 368 parishes and 2.6 million Catholics.

Let's do adoration and pray the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet unceasingly for this poor old world.

What once I found tedious I now enjoy." He felt bad ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/jAxpDKfUQxI/the-reluctant-bishop.html
