In a previous post I presented the Sacred Heart devotion and included a link to the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
A reader contacted me about the litany, so I decided to share it for June.
The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Of all Catholic devotions, this one continues to be the most popular and widespread.
In this post I’ll give a brief history and explanation of the devotion.
The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes is February 11th.
In honor of the upcoming feast, I’m revisiting my Lourdes Series.
In this post I’ll focus on an important Catholic phrase and its connection to my blog and Lourdes.
The Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God is celebrated annually on January 1st.
In honor of Our Lady’s special day, I’d like to share a traditional hymn that highlights her role as Mother.
Last year I wrote a post about the Holy Rosary.
Since October is dedicated to this devotion, and the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7th, I’d like to share this post again.
Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you (James 4:10).
I’d like to share a simple and important prayer: the Litany of Humility.
Throughout the centuries, the testimony of many Christians, including a number of saints, confirms that objects blessed by a priest, through the power of the Church’s intercession, can repel demonic powers. Again and again, evil spirits have recoiled in dread, not just from the Sign of the Cross, but also from holy water and blessed oil, crosses, crucifixes, medals, candles, or salt (Manual for Spiritual Warfare, 55).
In a previous post, Spiritual Warfare, I mentioned that sacramentals provide protection from the devil.
Someone close to me suggested that I write a post on these valuable weapons.
In honor of Saint Benedict of Nursia, a champion in spiritual warfare whose feast we celebrate today, here’s a post dedicated to sacramentals.
