The Beatific Vision and Freedom of Choice.
Excerpt from Chapter 13 of Frank J. Sheed's book "Theology & Sanity" (1947)
For angels and men the only purpose could be the most perfect possible relation with God.
Had we no revelation from God Himself as to the purpose for which He made them, we might at least hazard a guess;
that as the highest powers of their nature are knowledge and love,
it must be their destiny to come to know God and love God to the very limit of their power,
using no element of energy upon anything that would distract them from this knowing and loving.
Again considering their nature, we might hazard the further guess that this knowing of God would be by way of a richer and richer concept of Him, and that their love of God would bear a proportion to their growing knowledge. Such a natural destiny would be a thing of unrealizable splendour; yet that is not their destiny, but something more splendid still. No examination of the nature of angels and men would tell us …More

Of God, Angels and Men.
Excerpt from Chapter 6 of "Essays on catholicism, liberalism and socialism" by Juan Donoso Cortés (1874)
Before the creation of man, and in times removed beyond human investigations, God had created the angels, happy and perfect creatures, whom He permitted to gaze attentively on the brightest splendours of His face, bathed in a sea of unutterable delights, and perpetually absorbed in contemplation of Him. The angels were pure spirits, and the excellence of their nature was greater than that of the nature of man, composed of an immortal soul and of the slime of the earth. By its simple nature the angel was connected with God, whilst by its intelligence, by its liberty, and by its limited wisdom, it had been formed to be connected with man; as man by his spiritual portion had intercourse with the angel, and by his corporeal matter with the physical world, which was at the service of his will, and under the obedience of his word. And all creatures came into …More

3 Hail Marys.
"One of the greatest means of salvation, and one of the surest signs of predestination, is, unquestionably, the devotion to the Most Blessed Virgin. All the holy doctors of the Church are unanimous in saying with St. Alphonsus of Liguori: "A devout servant of Mary shall never perish." The chief thing is to persevere faithfully till death in this devotion.
Can there be an easier or a more adaptable practice for all than the recitation each day of three Hail Marys in honor of the privileges conferred by the Adorable Trinity on the Blessed Virgin?"

Thank you Barbara! I wish I could say that I composed this wonderful poem, but that credit belongs to one Mr Silas Mitchell, although that is my voice reciting the poem (pardon my South-Boston accent). I do hope to continue working on more videos as time permits. 🙂

Evangelium nach Johannes 12,1-11.
Sechs Tage vor dem Paschafest kam Jesus nach Betanien, wo Lazarus war, den er von den Toten auferweckt hatte.
Dort bereiteten sie ihm ein Mahl; Marta bediente, und Lazarus war unter denen, die mit Jesus bei Tisch waren.
Da nahm Maria ein Pfund echtes, kostbares Nardenöl, salbte Jesus die Füße und trocknete sie mit ihrem Haar. Das Haus wurde vom Duft des Öls erfüllt.
Doch einer von seinen Jüngern, Judas Iskariot, der ihn später verriet, sagte:
Warum hat man dieses Öl nicht für dreihundert Denare verkauft und den Erlös den Armen gegeben?
Das sagte er aber nicht, weil er ein Herz für die Armen gehabt hätte, sondern weil er ein Dieb war; er hatte nämlich die Kasse und veruntreute die Einkünfte.
Jesus erwiderte: Laß sie, damit sie es für den Tag meines Begräbnisses tue. Die Armen habt ihr immer bei euch, mich aber habt ihr nicht immer bei euch. Viele Juden hatten erfahren, daß Jesus dort war, und sie kamen, jedoch nicht nur um Jesu willen, sondern auch …More
