Catherine lay over her mother's corpse weeping and praying aloud. O my dear Lord, is this how you keep the promise you once made to me that none in my house should suffer eternal death? You promised me too that you would not take my mother from this world before she could leave it in a state of grace, and here she lies dead, without having confessed or received the Sacrament.

A Jesuit Challenge ARTICULI FIDEI - January 23, 2015 ... edition of Campion's, Ten Reasons (English text by Joseph Rickaby; Introduction by John Hungerford). Rickaby's translation, with Hungerford's introduction, created a yearning in my mind for more.

But, what I also found was something much more besides.

For a start, her mother was almost forced to undergo an abortion once it was discovered she was pregnant with ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/12/from-the-red-carpet-to-benedictine-habit.html

Throughout his life Advent may have been the church season most significant to him. Near the end of his young life he wrote a friend: "A prison cell is like our situation in Advent: one waits, hopes, does this or that—meaningless acts—but the door is locked and can only be opened from the outside. That is how I feel just now." 2 What are we to make of his image when today's scriptures and mass prayers overflow ...http://findfruit.blogspot.com/2014/12/sunday-word-14-dec-14.html
