Do We Have the Will To Remove The Infrastructure of Tyranny We Have Erected?

Think, think, think…

I’m not going to waste a lot of your time recapping what you are already being bombarded with in the news these past few days. The IRS Scandal, everyone is fair game to be spied on, etc.

Justice Antonin Scalia put it well when he wrote the dissent (which was supported also by Justices Kagen, Sotomayor, and Ginsberg) recently in the Supreme Court decision for allowing DNA swabs to be conducted on anyone who is arrested. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 9, Easter Saturday)

This is the eve of Divine Mercy Sunday and we are back to where we started. On this, the final day, we pray for lukewarm Christians. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 8, Easter Friday)

For lifelong Catholics, the doctrine of Purgatory is probably no big deal. Then again, what do I know? I’ll be frank with you…I don’t know much.

Which actually is just another reason why I am Catholic. When I became a Catholic I took an oath to believe everything the Church believes, and I do. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 7, Easter Thursday)

We are only three days away from Divine Mercy Sunday and our novena will conclude this Saturday. So far, we have prayed for all mankind, priests and religious, the devout and faithful, unbelievers, separated Christendom, and the childlike and children.

That is quite a list so far. Just when you thought there could be nothing else, today Our Lord has a special request: [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 6, Easter Wednesday)

Pride. My old nemesis. One of the seven deadly sins. Marines and pride go together like peas and carrots. In fact, the sin of pride can warp virtually anything it touches. Maybe even space and time; just ask Lucifer. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 5, Easter Tuesday)

 

It is the fifth day that we are praying the Divine Mercy novena.  And it is being prayed worldwide, not only by we few (we happy few) YIM Catholic readers, but by other Catholic Christians as well. They hail from every clime and place, to borrow a phrase from the Marine Corps hymn. And on this day from all of us around the globe, Our Lord asks us to pray for the unity of His Church.

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 4, Easter Monday)

It’s Monday morning and many of us head back to work or school following the Feast Day of Easter.  This past weekend, many catechumens and candidates were brought into union with the Church. Joyful news! Now Our Lord requests that in our prayers we remember the many who do not yet know him, [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 3, Easter Sunday)

A glorious Easter morning to you! The tomb is empty! Our Lord and Savior is alive! In the midst of this joyous celebration, Our Lord has a request for us, [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 2, Holy Saturday)

Admittedly, I jumped into this novena at the last minute. But do you see the words at the bottom of the Divine Mercy portrait? Jesus I Trust in You. Just so, I trust that suitable complementary material on the Divine Mercy will be forthcoming to share with you. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 1, Good Friday)

This is kind of last minute, but better late than never. Divine Mercy Sunday is nine days away so we have just enough time to start this novena and wrap it up before then. Join me, won’t you? My family and I are praying this novena, and it is pretty simple.

I’ll be following this guideline from the good folks at EWTN. We intend to pray the chaplet too. All you need for the chaplet is your rosary, the Apostles Creed, and these handy instructions. [Read more...]
