yes....and then spread the rumor that little Alfie Evans was Poisoned! New Rad Trad attack from Gary Voris....
You're kidding! LOL! I guess you are not.
The love and tenderness with which the little children approached Papa Francis made me smile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfldr83JtZ4
The rosary is a gentle devotion that may take a little getting used to. I have been doing it for years, following the good example of St. Pio and St. Thomas More and other holy men and women. I dedicate each decade to a different intercession (there's always someone to pray for!) It is easy to do it while driving, or doing mindless activities such as taking a walk (or shredding paper, which I did when working.) If you don't have a rosary handy, you can use your fingers - God thinks of everything! It seems tiresome and tedious at first, but before you know it, you cannot imagine getting through the day without it. I am up to two rosaries daily and hope to eventually get to four, which would include all the mysteries.Thank you for promoting Our Lady's "weapon", as St. Pio called it!God bless and protect you, dear Terry, and may Our Lady smile on you and everyone here today - Susan, ofs
If you were a Catholic school kid in the 50s as I was, you inevitably heard about Bishop James Walsh of Maryknoll who was thrown into prison by Chinese Communists for almost twelve years. He said that as a missioner bishop he never had enough time to pray but now with his ten fingers he could pray the Rosary to his heart's content. Years later, given the extraordinary amount gift of three years of theology at Maryknoll, I was both awed and delighted to see the elderly bishop in line with everyone else in the refrectory. (A Capuchin seminarian used to steal his used teabags as a...second class?--relic). The Blessed Mother accompanied him into her Son's presence after ninety years. I don't think it is possible to read even a short summation of his life without tears. In a culture addicted to virtue posturing, Bishop Walsh is the real thing.
I definitely knew of him and especially his 'rosary hands'. You have encountered many saints. Thanks for the reminder - I should do a post for him.
