A prayer from the Fr Norris mitigated St Ignatius Spiritual exercises..

Let us pray.

Mother Mary, I am all thine. Take me and watch over me. Guide me to Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life, that I may be one with Him in you. Do not permit me to displease our Father seriously. Grant that in your most chaste womb I may gradually come to the fullness of Jesus Christ and so be born into Heaven, your second born son.
At all times, my good Mother, solve my doubts and difficulties and make manifest to thy child the holy will of the Father, at all times.
Show me also sweet Mother, my true position in this life. My relations with God, how immense and good our Father is; how small and sinful I am. Show me just the truth about myself. Grant that I may never be separated from thee, my treasure! 

I promise to renew this consecration every feast day of my Queen, the throne of my heart and to honor her especially on these days. Amen.

“No man is a judge in his own case.”

 Remember “No man is a judge in his own case.” And from hour to hour we ripe and ripe, we rot and rot, and thereby hangs a tale. (Shakespeare). Time is a flash between two eternities. Consistency, thou art a jewel. Whatever has an end is short. Our life fixes our eternity no second innings. St. Theresa said she would walk on live coals all the days of her life, if it would gain her a little more merit. Everything is more durable than the dust out of which mankind is made. We are painting a picture and one day we must lay down the brush and gaze on it for eternity.

Pope to missionary congress in Argentina: do not be tempted by comfort

 “I encourage you to go out of yourselves and go to the peripheries, both geographical and existential, to proclaim Jesus and make known his message.” The Holy Father continued: “May the Holy Spirit give you strength and make you courageous, without fear and with bravery.”

Fr. Tony Kadavil Sunday (Aug 18)

Fr. Tony: Homilies for Aug 12-18 (OT 20 & Assumption) 


Synopsis: OT XX [C] Sunday (Aug 18) on Luke 12: 49-53 (L-13)

Let us learn to appreciate the contemporary prophets in the Church: The Jesuit Cardinal Avery Dulles, writing about the role of prophecy in the modern church communities in his book Models of the Church, remarks: “Christianity is not healthy unless there is room in it for prophetic protest against abuses of authority.” God continues to send such prophets to every parish community and it is the duty of the bishop, pastor and parish council to listen to the well-intended and constructive criticisms of such Jeremiahs.
