Volcano’s acting up around the world

Hello Everyone. Don’t forget the Litany of St. Joseph for March

The litany of St. Joseph, one of only six approved by the Church for public as well as private use, sums up qualities that made him such an important part of the Holy Family (pictured above).

Although he does not appear much in scripture, this “just man” (as he is called in Matthew 1:19), a humble carpenter, served our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary faithfully as His “foster-father” and her “chaste guardian,” as he is called below.

In referring to St. Joseph as a “diligent protector” of Christ, this litany brings to mind his important role in taking Mary and the infant child Jesus to Egypt to protect our Lord from being killed by King Herod (Matt 3:13-16).

The Litany of St. Joseph, in referring to him as a “patron of the dying” gives one of many examples of his patronage. The faithful ask for his assistance for workers, home buyers (and sellers) and, of course, carpenters, among many others!

When this litany is prayed in public, the congregation responds to a leader with the words in italics.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.

Why?

Why a Catholic journalist is urging the church to engage Black Lives Matter

“Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.” [John 14:6] Our Lord never mentions race.

“And in his name the Gentiles shall hope.”[Matthew 12:21] Our Lord mentions all races.

In her book, ‘Birth of a Movement,’ Olga Marina Segura highlights how the Black Lives Matter movement ‘is the secular version of our Catholic social teaching.’ MORE
