Fondatrice du monastère d'Eymeux (Drôme) (✝ 1303)
Béatrix (ou Béatrice) naquit au village d'Ornacieux en Isère, dans le Dauphiné.

Elle entra à la Chartreuse de Parménie puis fonda la chartreuse d'Eymeux (Drôme) d'où elle gagna le ciel le 25 novembre 1303. Béatifiée en 1869, elle est aussi fêtée le 13 février.
"Née au château d'Ornacieux, près de la Côte-Saint-André vers 1260, Béatrix entre à l'âge de 13 ans à la chartreuse de Parménie, non loin de Tullins. En 1300, elle fonde le monastère d'Eymeux où elle connaît le plus extrême dénuement. Elle y meurt un 25 novembre, sans doute en 1303. Une chapelle y perpétue son souvenir. La vie de Béatrix a été écrite par une moniale chartreuse contemporaine de la bienheureuse, Marguerite d'Oingt et elle atteste son ardent amour pour Jésus crucifié."
(Bienheureuse Béatrix d'Ornacieux - diocèse de Valence 25 novembre)
Dans le Valentinois, entre 1303 et 1309, la bienheureuse Béatrice d'Ornacieux, vierge, qui, saisie d'un grand amour de la croix, …More

Mystiques chrétiens Marthe Robin, née le 13 mars 1902 à Châteauneuf-de-Galaure (Drôme) et morte dans la même ville le 6 février 1981, est une mystique catholique française, fondatrice des Foyers de Charité, connue pour des phénomènes tels que des visions religieuses, des stigmates et l'inédie que lui attribuent divers témoins de son époque.
Son dossier en vue d'une éventuelle béatification a été déposé auprès des autorités diocésaines en 1987 puis transmis au Saint-Siège en 1996. Le 6 mai 2010 a été signée à Rome, à la Congrégation pour les causes des saints, la « Positio », recueil élaboré à partir de tous les éléments recueillis visant à authentifier sa réputation de sainteté ; elle a abouti à la reconnaissance de l'« héroïcité des vertus » le 7 novembre 2014.
Selon le père Bernard Peyrous, Marthe Robin a accompagné, à des degrés divers, la constitution de nombreuses communautés nouvelles et associations.

ou Bernard. Dates de Fête 22 janvier/23 janvier

Originaire de la région de Lyon, il se marie et vit à la cour de l'empereur Charlemagne. D'accord avec sa femme, après sept ans de vie commune, il distribue ses richesses familiales pour les pauvres et pour l'édification de deux monastères à Ambronay-01500 et à Romans-26100 et se consacre à Dieu au monastère d'Ambronay, en Bresse. Devenu archevêque de Vienne sur le Rhône, en 810, il devient l'un des personnages les plus influents de son temps, n'ayant jamais quitté les relations qu'il s'était faites à la cour impériale. En 837, il fonde l'abbaye de Romans et c'est là qu'il retourna à la maison du Père.

"Who can overcome the world? Only the man who believes that Jesus is the Son of God: Jesus Christ who came by water and blood, not with water only, but with water and blood; with the Spirit as another witness – since the Spirit is the truth – so that there are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water and the blood, and all three of them agree. We accept the testimony of human witnesses, but God’s testimony is much greater, and this is God’s testimony, given as evidence for his Son. Everybody who believes in the Son of God has this testimony inside him; and anyone who will not believe God is making God out to be a liar, because he has not trusted the testimony God has given about his Son. This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life and this life is in his Son; anyone who has the Son has life, anyone who does not have the Son does not have life. I have written all this to you so that you who believe in the name of the Son of God may be sure that you have eternal life." – 1 John …More

"Jesus and his disciples went as far as Capernaum, and as soon as the sabbath came he went to the synagogue and began to teach. And his teaching made a deep impression on them because, unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority. In their synagogue just then there was a man possessed by an unclean spirit and it shouted, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’ But Jesus said sharply, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’ And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him. The people were so astonished that they started asking each other what it all meant. ‘Here is a teaching that is new’ they said ‘and with authority behind it: he gives orders even to unclean spirits and they obey him.’ And his reputation rapidly spread everywhere, through all the surrounding Galilean countryside." – Mark 1:21-28, which is today's Gospel at Mass.

He made thy womb his throne; he, whom the heavens cannot hold, found there his resting place. All creation rejoices over thee.

No it isn’t. It’s feeding your child! Breasts were not sexualized until fairly recent times. Until Hugh Heffner, breasts were considered a normal and healthy way for a mother to feed her child and womb all over the world did it. The Devil wishes to turn everything into a perversion. There have been images of the Blessed Mother feeding Jesus, and apparently even some saints for centuries! Don’t make this something it’s not. A mother feeding her child is not a sexual act requiring “privacy”. It’s a mother feeding her child. Nothing more.

"Saint Geneviève, you who by the days before, penance and prayer, ensured the protection of Paris, intercede near God for us, for our country, for the devoted Christian hearts. You who cured the sick and fed the hungry, obtain the light of God and make us stronger to reject temptation. You who had the concern of the poor, protect the sick, the abandoned, and the unemployed. You who resisted the armies and encouraged the besieged, give us the direction for truth and justice. You who through the centuries never ceased taking care of your people, help us to keep the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. May your example be for us, an encouragement to always seek God and serve him through our brothers and sisters. Amen."

Saint Geneviève "was born in Nanterre, near Paris. As a child she heard the preaching of St Germanus of Auxerre and St Lupus of Troyes when they stopped at Nanterre on their way from Gaul to Britain to combat the Pelagian heresy. She was blessed by Germanus and encouraged in her resolve to live a religious life. She pursued this first in seclusion at home (there being no convents nearby) and later formally received the religious veil. On the death of her parents she moved to Paris, where she devoted herself to works of charity and lived a life of severe austerity. In 451 Attila and his Huns were sweeping over Gaul; and the inhabitants of Paris prepared to flee. Geneviève encouraged them to hope and trust in God; she urged them to do works of penance, and added that if they did so the town would be spared. Her exhortations prevailed; the citizens recovered their calm, and Attila’s hordes turned off towards Orléans, leaving Paris untouched. Some years later Merowig (Mérovée) took Paris;…More

Butler'sLIvesoftheSaints Saint Andrew was a native of Bethsaida, a town in Galilee, upon the banks of the lake of Genesareth. He was the son of Jonas or John, a fisherman of that town, and brother to Simon Peter, but whether elder or younger the holy scriptures have not acquainted us. They had afterwards a house at Capharnaum, where Jesus lodged when he preached in that city. It is no small proof of the piety and good inclinations of Saint Andrew, that when Saint John Baptist began to preach penance in the desert, he was not content with going to hear him as others did, but became his disciple, passed much of his time in hearing his instructions, and studied punctually to practise all his lessons and copy his example; but he often returned home to his fishing trade. He was with his master when Saint John Baptist seeing Jesus pass by the day after he had been baptized by him, said: Behold the Lamb of God.

"The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples; and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying; and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas" (which means Peter). The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. And he found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." – John 1:35-43.

This is one of my favourite hymns of the Catholic Faith. Taken from Isaiah and other sources, it is a reverent and humble supplication to the mercy of God. A hymn of repentance and sorrow. On top of that, this is one of my favourite renditions. The French accents are very noticeable, and the quality is poor, but it is very old and priceless. The lyrics and translation follow: Roráte caéli désuper, et núbes plúant jústum. Peccávimus, et fácti súmus tamquam immúndus nos, et cecídimus quasi fólium univérsi: et iniquitátes nóstræ quasi véntus abstulérunt nos: abscondísti faciem túam a nóbis, et allisísti nos in mánu iniquitátis nóstræ.

I saw St. Catherine's bones in a small coffin, the snow-white skull and one entire arm, but nothing more. All things around this spot have fallen to decay. Near the sacristy is a little vault hollowed in the rock; in it are excavations containing only bones, most of them wrapped in wool or silk and well preserved. There are among them some bones of the prophets who once lived on the mountain. They were venerated even by the Athenians in their caves. I saw the bones of Jacob, and those of Joseph and his family which the Israelites brought with then from Egypt. These sacred objects seemed to be unknown, venerated …More

“Rome will be purified in blood for its many sins, especially those of impurity.” Those are the prophetic words of the Blessed Virgin Mary in a Church-approved prophecy given to Blessed Elena Aiello (mystic, stigmatist, victim soul, prophet, and foundress of the Minim Tertiaries of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ). This prophecy was given in 1959. For more details about Blessed Aiello and her prophecies, see: www.mysticsofthechurch.com/…/blessed-elena-a… Rome is so infiltrated by Freemasons, Marxists, homosexuals, satanists, members of intelligence agencies, and other organizations, and it is so corrupt and leading so many anti-God agendas, that if God doesn’t chastise Rome, as the famous saying goes, it would seem He would have to apologize to Sodom, Gomorrah, and 70 A.D. Jerusalem. The unrepentant infiltrators in Rome are already preparing their abode in Hell (whether they believe in it or not) and are intensifying their eternal future sufferings with each unrepentant sin. …More

cybrotius Memorial 5 January
13 October (translation of his relics)
Edward was unexpectedly raised to the throne of England at the age of forty years, twenty-seven of which he had passed in exile. On the throne, the virtues of his earlier years, simplicity, gentleness, lowliness, but above all his angelic purity, shone with new brightness. By a rare inspiration of God, though he married to content his nobles and people, he preserved perfect chastity in the wedded state. So little did he set his heart on riches, that thrice when he saw a servant robbing his treasury he let him escape, saying the poor fellow needed the gold more than he. He loved to stand at his palace-gate, speaking kindly to the poor beggars and lepers who crowded about him, and many of whom he healed of their diseases. The long wars had brought the kingdom to a sad state, but Edward’s zeal and sanctity soon wrought a great change. His reign of twenty-four years was one of almost unbroken peace, the country grew …More

En relation d'affaires avec quelques juifs de Rome, il fit de mauvaises opérations, s'affola, prit la fuite, fut finalement rattrapé et enfermé dans un cachot. Son maître, qui l'estimait, le fit relâcher, pensant qu'il parviendrait à récupérer l'argent perdu.

J The Miracle of the Sun (Portuguese: Milagre do Sol), also known as the Miracle of Fátima, was an event that is reported to have occurred on 13 October 1917, attended by a large crowd who had gathered in Fátima, Portugal, in response to a prophecy made by three shepherd children. The prophecy was that the Virgin Mary (referred to as Our Lady of Fátima), would appear and perform miracles on that date. Newspapers published testimony from witnesses who said that they had seen extraordinary solar activity, such as the Sun appearing to "dance" or zig-zag in the sky, careen towards the Earth, or emit multicolored light and radiant colors. According to these reports, the event lasted approximately ten minutes.
The local bishop opened a canonical investigation of the event in November 1917, to review witness accounts and assess whether the alleged private revelation from Mary were compatible with Catholic theology. The local priest conducting the investigation was particularly conv…More

"Now the great power of the Rosary lies in this, that it makes the Creed into a prayer; of course, the Creed is in some sense a prayer and a great act of homage to God; but the Rosary gives us the great truths of His life and death to meditate upon, and brings them nearer to our hearts. And so we contemplate all the great mysteries of His life and His birth in the manger; and so too the mysteries of His suffering and His glorified life. But even Christians, with all their knowledge of God, have usually more awe than love of Him, and the special virtue of the Rosary lies in the special way in which it looks at these mysteries; for with all our thoughts of Him are mingled thoughts of His Mother, and in the relations between Mother and Son we have set before us the Holy Family, the home in which God lived. Now the family is, even humanly considered, a sacred thing; how much more the family bound together by supernatural ties, and, above all, that in which God dwelt with His Blessed …More

Le Saint Sépulcre
Rotonde et basilique, plan centré et plan longitudinal, c’est bien l’association de ces deux éléments qui donnera la base de l’architecture chrétienne.
L'abbaye du Mont Saint Michel (avec Notre-Dame sous terre, et « La Merveille »)
Marcher vers le mont, c’était marcher vers l’autre monde, vers la Jérusalem de l’Apocalypse.
Le sacré est ce qui élève, et l’architecture va participer à cette élévation. Bâti sur le roc de la foi, un monument sacré va aider l’homme à aller plus haut, à dépasser le quotidien, sans le renier.
Toute l’architecture ici est mis au service de la spiritualité des moines.
L’architecture gothique répond à une philosophie, et cette philosophie est profondément marquée par la philosophie de la lumière. Cette architecture gothique est d’une certaine façon la représentation de la Jérusalem céleste.
En d’autres thermes une retranscription architecturale d’une pensée et d’une philosophie dans la quelle bien sur la lumière joue un rôle considérable. Cath…More

"O blessed Archangel Gabriel, we beseech thee, do thou intercede for us at the throne of divine mercy in our present necessities, that as thou didst announce to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation, so through thy prayers and patronage in heaven we may obtain the benefits of the same, and sing the praise of God forever in the land of the living. Amen." 29 September is the feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. Medieval doorway in the Louvre Museum, Paris.

"O Raphael, lead us towards those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us! Raphael, Angel of happy meetings, lead us by the hand towards those we are looking for! May all our movements, all their movements, be guided by your light and transfigured by your Joy. Angel guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him on whose unveiled face you are privileged to gaze. Lonely and tired, crushed by the separations and sorrows of earth, we feel the need of calling to you and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers in the province of Joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country. Remember the weak, you who are strong--you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene, and bright with the resplendent glory of God. Amen." 29 September is the feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. Predella painting in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC

Life of Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich 1774-1824 Volume 1
7. The Child Receives the Name of Mary

I saw a great feast in Anne's house; all was gladness. The wicker partitions in the front of the house had been taken away, and a large room was thusly made ready. All around it ran a low table upon which
stood plates, glasses, etc., but as yet no eatables. In the middle of the room was an altar covered with red and white, and a stand upon which scrolls were laid. A small basket-cradle stood on the altar. It was shaped like a shell, and woven in white and red; the coverlet was sky-blue. Priests from Nazareth were present in their sacred vestments; among them was one robed more magnificently than the rest. Many of the female guests, relatives of Anne, were also in their holiday garments. Among them were Anne's eldest daughter Mary Heli, espoused to Cleophas, Anne's sister from Sephoris, and others. Several of Joachim's relatives also were present. Anne was up, but she did not …More

St Margaret Ward was born at Congleton (Cheshire), but entered into the service of a family in London. She was arrested after assisting a priest escape from prison, but refused under severe torture to reveal his hiding place or to renounce her faith. She was tried at the Old Bailey, and executed on this day (30 August) in 1588. Together with St Margaret Clitherow and St Anne Line, these women martyrs of England are remembered today for their resourcefulness, for their loyalty, for their outstanding courage, and for the service they rendered the Church during dangerous times in aiding the ministry of priests. May they pray for us, and for our priests. This statue of the saint is in St Etheldreda's church in London.
