Let us pray and wish a blessed #happybirthday to Father Baba Padre Saimon who turned 106 years young this week with 80 years of #priesthood. He is the oldest #priest in the Catholic church in #Tanzania. He is now living in the Mpanda Diocese in Tanzania resting and still doing some #ministry work from a #retirement home for the #religious and #priests.
80 years of faithful ministry in #Africa. A true faithful servant of Christ!

“Your new catechisms are so watered down, all they say is ‘Love your neighbor.’ No. Love God first!”

Does this happen in your parish?
Today, August 5, marks the Feast of the Dedication of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, known in older versions of the Roman liturgical calendar as the Feast of the Dedication of the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Snows, or simply as Our Lady of the Snows.
The name came from the ancient legend that during the pontificate of Liberius in the mid-300s, a Roman patrician named John and his wife had no heirs. As a result, they vowed to give all their possessions to the Virgin Mary, and prayed that she would show them how to dispense of their treasures. Then, on the night of Aug. 5, 358, in the middle of the hot Roman summer, snow fell on the summit of the city’s Esquiline hill. In obedience to a vision of Mary the couple had that night, they built a basilica in the same spot that the snow fell.
In honor of the special day, a shower of white flowers is dropped from the ceiling of the Basilica, now known as Saint Mary Major, to commemorate the “Miracle of the Snow” in 358.

Y’ALL check out the PCOS tag on my fertility health blog, @live-love-nfp. LOTS of info there!
Also, birth control CAN be used to handle PCOS symptoms, but it does not treat the root cause and comes with its own risks. So, definitely look into NaProTechnology at fertilitycare.org.
