Roma Day 16: today’s highlight hands down was spending the evening with Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke who joined us for dinner, a great discussion capped off with a Rosary. I am always amazed at how gracious and generous he is. He has been unfairly characterized by some, so please pray for him and the important ministry he does for the Church. Besides classes, we also went to a number of beautiful churches and found a film crew on our roof when we got home. Just another amazing day here in the Eternal City.

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!

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.

Oh dear!  What is next, Catholic Tumblr blogs??

Hey, happy Catholic Tumblr folks. Hope you’re having a blessed day! Does anyone know a treatment for PCOS that is in line with Catholic teaching? (A bit of background: I just spent all day with my little sister in the hospital. PCOS runs in my family, and this particular sister has the worst of it. Not to get graphic, but she had to have an ovary removed due to the severity of cysts, and now the doctors are pressuring us to put her on birth control. Obviously, this isn’t an option.) Pax!

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.

There seems to be a current epidemic of ungodly men posing as Catholics and targeting virtuous young Catholic women.  Just because a man says he is Catholic does not mean that he truly is in practice.

Is he prince charming or prince harming?
