The Franciscan Ideal



Vos, Sancti Dei inclyti
Qui estis mente lucidi
Franciscum imitate,
Orate ut intrepidi
Hic simus semper fervidi
Et postmodum beati.


This liturgical antiphon in honor of the saints of the Franciscan Order points out the three principal means of perpetuating Franciscan perfection : retaining undimmed the Franciscan ideal; expressing it by heroic action; sustaining it by fervent prayer. The last words of the antiphon, "Et postmodum beati," assure us of the recompense promised to the faithful imitators of our seraphic Father.  -  (from) Franciscan Perfection.

Just Shut Up

I'm trying to wrap my head around the stance that many people (Democrats, Liberals, Modernists, etc) have taken concerning our President-elect.  How can they say, and mean, that he's 'not my President!' Are you an American citizen? Then he is your President. If your not a citizen then just shut up. This is not your country. Move to the background. The rest of you, your liberalism is showing. And we know that when it shines, it looks bad. Sore losers, the whole lot of you. This world has thrown Christ away as King so long ago that what He stands for and the gifts He gave us are just a memory to you. Try to do the right thing for once, not the thing that you think is right. Let the country move forward, God willing, with a conservative behind the wheel. Try to hold your tongue in place and your fingers off the keyboard. Pray a Rosary instead. Pray to the Holy Ghost for guidance. Let your guard down for once and allow God to talk to you.

Holy Mass in the Catacombs (real fear.)

I'm having a awful hard time figuring out what all these people are afraid of, now that Mr. Trump has been elected President. Is it because they are illegally here in this country?  If so, they should have been concerned about their deportation before, if that's what they are worried about now. Oh, wait, they weren't worried before, because the government had no intention of prosecuting them anyway. For the government they were a potential Democratic vote. The way I see it if your in this country legally you have no worries. I work with many people from different countries whom settled here in the last 10 years and everyone of them is here legally. No worries. Buddhists, Muslims, they are here legally. America (and the world) in general has been pulled so far to the left in the last 50 years that what passes for normal nowadays is really far from it. If any of us has survived going through grade school and then college and does not think in a modernistic and  liberal manner and you still are a practicing Catholic it is only by the grace of God. I believe Our Blessed Virgin Mother had some say in the recent political event that is shaking this country to its roots. Heaven said no, it is not time for the catacombs. That is just my gut feeling. We must continue to pray the Rosary, 15 decades a day, for now to stem the tide that seems to be overwhelming us. Liberals are really not nice people, true liberals, that is. This election has slipped through satans' hands and he is not happy.
