Fr. Perrone: Cultural Impoverishment, Nobility of Soul, and the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - August 15, 2017 ... things were piled up in the shopping carts of those around me. Mostly junk food. Next, I looked over the offerings on non-cable TV (just to take a quick look). Guess what? Trash, silly or filthy, with lots of commercials. Culturally a great majority of our American people are deficient if not impoverished. That's not to say they're necessarily bad, immoral people, but that for the greater part they have a rather low level of culture which can be assessed by standards other ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2017/08/fr-perrone-cultural-impoverishment.html

St. Dominic and the Triumph of Grace FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - August 8, 2017 From Vultus Christ i : If Saint Dominic preached the rosary and prayed it, it was because he knew it to be a prayer capable of winning every grace. The rosary is a prayer of repetition. It is a prayer of confidence. It helps one to persevere in supplication, bead by bead, and decade by decade. Our Lord finds the rosary irresistible because His own Mother "subsidizes" it. She stands behind it. The rosary is the voice of the poor, the needy, the downtrodden, ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2016/08/st-dominic-and-triumph-of-grace.html

Aug 4 - St. John Vianney FATHER BILL'S BLOG - August 4, 2017 + St. John Vianney is a saint of God par excellence. This poor French priest was declared by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009 the patron saint of all priests because of the absolute clarity in the saint's mind of what the mission and life of a priest of Jesus Christ is all about. An amazingly short summary that he gave is this: "The priesthood (the priest) is the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus." This means that that when you see ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2017/08/aug-4-st-john-vianney.html

The Transfiguration MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - August 3, 2017 "He did not know what to say, for they were exceedingly afraid [Mark 9: 5]." With this little detail, Saint Mark reveals quite a bit about the character of Saint Peter and the human condition in general. Under normal circumstances, we are unprepared to behold the full glory of God, and when suddenly God's grandeur "flame[s] out, like shining from shook foil," it can be a terrifying, disorienting experience. We have ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/the-transfiguration/

He was known to be of human estate, and it was thus that he humbled himself, obediently accepting even death, death on a cross! (Philippians 2:5-8) DOCTOR VERITATIS DOCTOR OF TRUTH Humility is the foundation of perfection, and in St. Dominic it was deep and strong.
