My dear friends, as you all know, this month is dedicated to the devotion of the Most Holy Rosary.Today, I would like to address the importance of this beautiful devotion, and some practical matters on the proper way to practice it. The Catholic Wire · 21st Sunday-On the Rosary and the objections against it. No one ignores what is the nature of the Rosary. The Rosary, if it is properly prayed, is a mix of both mental prayer, that is meditation, and vocal prayer; it consists in the recitation of 15 decades of the Hail Mary, with one Our Father preceding, and a Glory be at the end of each decade.

On the Hope and Trust in God. EpistleTaken from the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the EphesiansEph 5:15-21Brethren: See to it that you walk with care: not as unwise but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

Sermon for the Feast of the North American Martyrs

“The Blood of the Martyrs is the seed of the Church” My dear friends, today we celebrate and remember our parents in the faith. We celebrate the north American martyrs. These where 7 Priests and one layman, who died here in North America, for no other reason but their desire to bring salvation to the souls in this continent. We offer the holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the honor of men, who lived and died, here in this land, to bring Christ, and His Blessed Mother, to bring the Church to us, at the price of their lives. And I called them our parents in the faith, because we truly are related to them. These men where some of the first Apostles in these lands. If we have the Catholic Church, if we are able to receive the sacraments, and to enjoy so many of the blessings we enjoy,
