St. Peter Canisius

A short break now, from the mountain of books (ah the horror, lol, not so terrible, not so terrible) :). O Beautiful Cross! Deo gratias et Mariae, One more major one to go, I am so glad biostats, cell bio and nutrition are over. My brain is utterly squeezed dry of its ability to retain any memory whatsoever though, haha, but, Deo volente, its alright! :)

I'll be typing a little - on St. Peter Canisius, Confessor, Doctor of the Church, whose blessed feast day this 27th of April is.

Peter Kanis (or Canisius), born at Nimeguen in Holland, after brilliant studies at Cologne and Louvain, entered the Company of Jesus, of which he is one of the chief glories. The wisdom of his controversy, his eloquent preaching, his instructive writings (for example, the first catechism) caused him to be called the Hammer of Protestantism. He died at Fribourg in Switzerland in 1597.
As taken from the 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal

And here's something really really beautiful that my patron saint, St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face wrote in one of her poems:
Here on earth,
to live for love,
does not mean settling on Thabor;
it means climbing Calvary with Jesus
and looking on the Cross as a treasure.

How beautiful is that. :)

Saint Thérèse, Ora pro nobis!

Jesus, Mary, I Love Thee; Save Souls!

p/s: do you hear the beautiful gregorian chant when you get into this page? :) Deo gratias et Mariae, I found out how to put music on this blogpage. Now playing is the beautiful Regina Caeli, which is said during Paschal Time. Link to the full prayer is as above. :) God Bless.

I just prayed the collect for St. Peter Canisius, from the same 1962 Missal. This is what I love about the SSPX, we are doing the same things together as ONE body Catholic all around the world. The way it was always supposed to be.

God bless,
Dave

ONE Catholic body throughout the world, the way it was always supposed to be. :)

Let us pray for, with great fervour, for One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church as we say in the Credo everyday. :)

God Bless!
