“I shall simply tell you, as a true friend in the adorable Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, that when I pray to him for you this thought occurs to me: if you want to live wholly for him and attain that perfection he desires of you, you must make a complete sacrifice of yourself and of all that you have, without reserve, to his Sacred Heart. You must no longer will anything but with the will of this most loving Heart, love nothing except with his love, act only according to the lights he gives you, undertake nothing without first asking his counsel, and help. All the glory must be his. You must thank him for the ill as well as for the good success of your undertakings, always satisfied, never worrying about anything. As long as this divine Heart is satisfied, loved, and glorified, that must be enough for us….
After that you will not regard yourself in any other way than as belonging to and dependent upon the adorable Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. You must have recourse to it in all your necessities and take up your abode there in so far as you can. He will make up for what is wanting in your imperfect actions and sanctify your good ones if only you conform yourself in everything to his holy will. He has great plans in store for you.”
~St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Happy All Saints Day! This morning we prayed Divine Office Morning Prayer for All Saints Day, talked about why we celebrate the Feast of All Saints, using the second reading for today’s Office of Readings, and then touched on what veneration of the saints is, and isn’t. The video opens with a little music; it gives people a little time to join in before I begin the cast, and gives me a chance to wrap up a few things before starting. Podcast starts just before 4:00. Finally, stay tuned to see why Mr. Kermit, sacrificial spouse that he is, will be numbered among all the saints in glory.
Top box is the FB video, which has better audio. Second is the YouTube feed. I may start making YouTube the primary feed, which means that the better audio will be there, and not on Facebook. Just a heads up. I tried downloading the FB video and putting it into iMovie but it’s just not happening–half of the audio doesn’t transfer over and I have no time to figure that issue out! Sorry! So anyways, if you click on “watch on Facebook” (which I recommend–better feed) and it doesn’t work, you have the YouTube feed to watch.
Today was fun! Hope you enjoy! Here is what we did today:
*Divine Office Morning Prayer
*Daily Mass Readings and reflections on “good will” and the effects on our soul when we lose this “good will”
*News & Commentary
What I wanted to do, but which we did not have time for, was a decade of an “intentional rosary,” in which every Hail Mary is prayed for a specific intention. I did not make this Rosary praying technique up; I got it from Sirius Catholic Channel’s Gus Lloyd, who hosts Seize the Day in the mornings. If you haven’t checked him out, give him a listen; he’s a delight to listen to.
Without further ado, here are the links to the news articles I talked about today.
