At Padre Pio's tomb

Feast of St. Louis Marie de Montfort - Happy Feast Day!



"True Devotion"

Don't forget your Consecration!

"I [Name_____________], a faithless sinner-I renew and ratify to-day in thy hands the vows of my Baptism; I renounce for ever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee as Thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past present and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and of all that belongs to me, without exception, according to Thy good pleasure to the greatest glory of God, in time and in eternity.

Receive O gracious Virgin, this little offering of my slavery, in honour of, and in union with, that subjection which the Eternal Wisdom deigned to have thy Maternity, in homage to the power which both of you have over this little worm and miserable sinner, and in thanksgiving for the privileges with which the Holy Trinity hath favoured thee. I protest, that I wish, henceforth, as thy true slave, to seek thy honour, and to obey thee in all things.

O admirable Mother, present me to thy Dear Son, as His eternal slave, so that as He hath redeemed me by thee, by thee He may receive me.

O Mother of mercy, get me the grace to obtain the true Wisdom of God, and for that end place me in the number of those whom thou lovest, whom thou teachest, whom thou leadest, and whom thou nourishest and protectest, as thy children and thy slaves. O Faithful Virgin, make me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator and slave of the Incarnate Wisdom, Jesus Christ thy Son, that I may attain, by thy intercession and by thy example, to the fullness of His age on earth, and of His glory in heaven. Amen."

"The Screwtape Letters" - Playing in Washington, D.C.

Interview: 'Screwtape' Actor on Playing a Demon, Modern Temptation

"Whereas in our day, again going back to Lewis, the idea of the devil and Satan is being minimized in our culture and yet we are very quick to point out how much evil there is in the world. But where is that evil rooted, where does it come from, and where does it come from in our hearts?

So we don’t have to personify him in a particular way, but we do have to recognize that he is there and he is God’s enemy. It is like what John Milton said in ‘Paradise Lost’ – he’d rather rule in hell than serve in heaven and he’d like us to go with him."
