"Hail, full of grace. The Lord is with you." Lk 1:28 "The salvation of the whole world began with the "Hail Mary". Hence, the salvation of each person is also attached to this prayer." St. Louis Grignion de Montfort

"Life has an inner source, namely God. And God cannot remain inactive. It is he who gives life to all our acts. Thus our inner life is not something to be sought up in the skies, but within ourselves; not in the abstract, but in little daily happenings and acts. God is at work there, within us, with us, correcting, polishing; until--and in order that--everything in us, our faculties and their acts, are under the sway of this inner principle. We should try to reduce everything in us to this inner principle." Dom Augustin Guillerand taken from Magnificat

Today is the memorial for Saint John Paul II --"Poet, philosopher, priest, Karol Wojtyla (1920-2005) was born in Poland and served as pope for twenty-eight years. Rooted in the conviction that Christ reveals man to himself, his apostolic witness included trips to one hundred twenty-nine countries, the eloquent defense of family life, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church." taken from Magnificat magazine 22 Oct 2014

It is fitting that St. John Paul II was acknowledged as a saint.  He said, "It is love that has explained everything to me."

This is the best dental care I have ever had. Plus, I have had help with my snoring which has become worse over the years.  Dr. Sorge had me fitted with a snore guard within the last four months. I not only have had a 75% decrease in snoring, but I have a more restful and deeper sleep.   15 to 20 years ago I tried a mask test with no success.  I tried it one night and found it on the floor the next morning.  A snore guard is fitted inside the mouth.  It was foreign for a only a few days. I have been using it for 3 1/2 months.  For the past 2 months, I have become very used to it. I am very glad I did this. Visit this dentist office.

Today's the 215th anniversary of the rediscovery of the Rosetta Stone! Amy Johnson Crow shows how it can be a model for reading old handwriting. (No, we're not talking about hieroglyphics.) http://ancstry.me/1rd6hpR

I love the wholecloth triquetra. The design just jumped out at me. Reading your comment, I realized this was an accident.

Today is the Memorial of "Our Lady of the Rosary"
"It could be said that each mystery of the rosary, carefully meditated, sheds light on the mystery of man. 'Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you'(Ps 55:23). To pray the rosary  is to hand over our burdens to the merciful hearts of Christ and his Mother. The rosary does indeed 'mark the rhythm of human life,' bringing it into harmony with the 'rhythm' of God's own life, in the joyful communion of the Holy Trinity, our life's destiny and deepest longing. Through the rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer."--Saint John Paul II (taken from Magnificat)

A must read.
Almost 650,000 federal student loan borrowers have defaulted on their debt, new data shows. A handful of for-profit schools are a big part of the problem.

"One of the most common questions I hear in the course of my theological and evangelical work is: 'Father, why does God tolerate so much evil?' There is a corollary to this question, which is often expressed as a declarative: 'If I were God, I would do things differently.' The biblical authors meditate on this matter frequently, and provide a number of images, narratives, and abstract ideas that help us to come to a deeper understanding of this most vexing of theological problems.

One of Jesus' parables, presented in the Gospel of Matthew, gives us a most helpful and illuminating comparison.  The Lord speaks of a farmer who sows a field with good seed and who finds, to his chagrin, that an enemy has sown weeds among the wheat. When the two crops grow up together, servants of the farmer suggest that the weeds be torn up. The wise planter counsels against this, for in the very act of extracting the weeds, the wheat might be compromised. Better, he says, to let them grow together and be separated only at the harvest.

There are evils--sickness, failure, the loss of dear friends, deep anxieties--that mysteriously play a role in the development of certain great goods. Often we find ourselves saying things such as, 'Had I not gotten sick, I would never have realized how my life had to change,' or 'Had my husband not died, I would never have found and married you,' or 'That weakness of mine really keeps me humble.'

So why does God permit so much evil? why doesn't he just get rid of it? Thomas Aquinas says that God permits evil in order to bring out of it a greater good. So be careful what you ask for!"-- Very Reverend Robert Barron taken from Magnificat
