A Rare Letter

My 6 word story about this letter!

“A treasure! Overlooked, a second chance!

Sharing With Others -

It is rare today to find a Traditional Catholic who has not heard of Rev. Alban Butler, his writings of “The Lives of the Saints.”

The photos here are that of two volumes dated 1833 that I possess. Butler

This beautiful letter I want so much to share now is seen printed at the beginning pages; a letter his mother wrote to him and his two brothers, just before her death. Guaranteed to bring a tear or two to the reader.
The grammar is just as she wrote it.

Lives

My Dear Children,
Since it pleased Almighty God to take me out of this world, as no doubt wisely foreseeing I am no longer a useful parent to you, for no person ought to be thought necessary in this world when God thinks proper to take them out. I hope you will offer the loss of me with a resignation suitable to…

A PIOUS BELIEF

THINGS WATERY my contribution; a reblog of my post on January 20.
This idea of “things watery” reminds me of a pious little story presented here below:

Here is a little story, I am sure many of you, especially those who attended Catholic Schools back in the 40’s – 50’s have heard.

One happy, perfect day in heaven it was decided a contest was in the making for the angels. The rules were they would fly down to earth and find a gift for the Baby Jesus. Whosoever would find the best gift was the winner.

Anxious as they all were they polished their wings and got ready to take off, “Get ready, get set, and GO!” Wings started to flutter; it seems a hurricane entered heaven.

Landing deep within a lush rural forest one such angel found the most beautiful flower, with a luxurious fragrance that seemed to fill the entire forest.

Where is the Church? — AUTHORITY

A Stream of Consciousness Saturday, June 9th —  Today’s prompt

Authority exists to the Churches, not the Church living for the sake of authority. Authority is a concern for the sheep; read John 21; 15-17. “Feed My sheep.”
This Authority or Power; “Let every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God.”
We see here how God has given authority to His Church to feed His sheep, as in John 21; 15-17.
What happens in the case of the current “pope” who is not feeding the sheep? Is Vatican II a church that has adapted to the world existing; existing only for the sake of said authority? NO!

This jurisdiction/power is gone. God will not be mocked.
Does the Church that Christ found still exist. OF COURSE and with AUTHORITY!
He has said, about His second coming, ” the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?” Luke 18:8

I Love a Challenge

Wild

This challenge was initiated by K’lee and Dale; “find the wild things.”

Magpie was terrorizing this poor rabbit who is running like there is no tomorrow. Now that is wild!

I was fortunate to capture this photo in my backyard one-day last summer while looking for some wildlife, didn’t have to go too far.

***********************************

On another note, that volcanic event in Hawaii is also wild.

Today it was mentioned that the summit is about to collapse into itself. Resulting in capping off this energy inside that might cause such a force within this mountain. Is it possible this Bible prophecy is the beginning? Or an end?
PRETTY WILD
“And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood:”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 8:8]
