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.

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.

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...]

Why I Am Catholic? Because There Is So Much I Don’t Know, But the Church Does…

Salvador Dali’s Christ of St. John of the Cross

 

For instance, on Good Friday, there is beautiful work of art called the Remonstrances that is sung. At least, it was sung. Perhaps we should sing them again. [Read more...]

You Never Know When the Pope Will Show Up and Say Mass…UPDATED

..if you are anywhere near Saint Martha’s House (Domus Sanctæ Marthæ), that is. This is one of those cases where the photographs arrive before the backstory*.

He didn’t just sneak in and worship in the back row, though. He celebrated the Mass too… [Read more...]
