"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 8:13]

Saint Quote of the Day- Pray for Priests!

'Do we not see priests who, in church, at the altar, in the confessional, and even when vested for Mass, not only raise their eyes, but turn them round in all directions and fix them on people as if they wished to study them, and who are so uneasy and restive, craning their necks and moving hands and feet, that they show plainly that they cannot control themselves? How is it possible for the people to be edified at such a sight and learn to respect the house of God, and stand with reverence and composure?

On one occasion it happened that a layman came into a church looking for a priest to hear his confession. As soon as he entered he saw a confessor who, having dispatched a penitent from one side of the confessional before turning to the other, had a good look round the church, and not content with that, leaned out straining his eyes in order to get a better view of everything. At such a sight the man took his hat and went out saying that such a confessor would hardly suit him.'
St. Joseph Cafasso, 'The Priest, The Man Of God, His Dignity and Duties'

Donations:  This last week was poor in this area.  Again, I ask those who have been with this work now for a month or two to get in the fight for the Faith with a financial contribution.  We go and grow as your charity flows.  I will provide a year end statement in January with what I was able to accomplish through your help, Ave Maria!
