Domine Deus meus, adjuva me. Mater Dei, adjuva me. Spiritus quidem promptus est, caro autem infirma.

" If God causes you to suffer much, it is a sign that He has great designs for you and that He certainly intends to make you a saint. And if you wish to become a great saint, entreat Him yourself to give you much opportunity for suffering; for there is no wood better to kindle the fire of holy love than that of the Cross, which Christ used for His own great sacrifice of boundless charity." 

- Saint Ignatius of Loyola - 

Domine Deus meus, cor meum, adjuva me
Mater Dei, usque ad proximum Cor Jesu, adjuva me, ora pro nobis.

Spiritus quidem promptus est, caro autem infirma...
Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. 

Multis gratias to S.M.I. & S.M.C. & many many many others.

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne, Therese, I love You; Save Souls!

Book Review (to be): Vatican Encounter!

I know the title of this post says book review ... so I must have had least read the book ... but ... I only wish I have the time to read this book! ah!!! 

*peering through the big pile of the daily grind, work and marking together with our little one in tow...* ... I WILL FIND THE TIME

This book is a rare interview between Archbishop Lefebvre and a Dutch Catholic journalist in 1976. It covers everything from the Archbishop’s family background in Northern France to the veneration of the Senegalese people for their bishop and his anti-liberal interdict on the Island of Fadiouth. It includes the courageous attacks made by the Archbishop at the Council, as well as his letter of 1966, one year after the Council. It also features the story of Ecône, the dreary days of of the apostolic visitors, and the accusations and sanctions against the seminary. Yet, beyond the wonderful details of the book are underlined the vital principles which animated the founder of the Society of St. Pius X - the same principles which all its members hold as definitive and non-negotiable. This work reveals a striking characteristic of the man, a mind and heart deeply at peace in the thick of pressure:
I am not worried. God is almighty; what appears insurmountable to us is only a little thing in his eyes. If my work is God’s work, God will preserve it and make it serve the Church for the salvation of souls."
