Dear God, the Royal Family Is Supposedly Weighed Before and After Christmas Dinner
This strange news comes from royal expert and Majesty editor Ingrid Seward and the new issue of Grazia (so take this story with a mountain of salt). They claim the tradition dates back to King Edward VII’s reign. Apparently, King Edward VII was intensely concerned about people’s health and whether or not they were eating enough on Christmas. That’s sweet and all, but these days the royal family enjoys about three gigantic meals on Christmas day, so the scale seems highly unnecessary

Monday is the feast day of St. Leonard of Port Maurice, an 18th-century Franciscan priest from Italy. He was a popular preacher, and spread devotion to the Sacred Heart, the Stations of the Cross and the Immaculate Conception. He was recognized by Pope Benedict XIV for his outstanding preaching, and sent to preach in Corsica in 1744. He died in 1751 at his friary in the odor of sanctity, and was canonized in 1867. He is patron of parish missions. We republish an excerpt from his most famous sermon as follows on the link

(Including The Chair Used By Our Lady To Talk To Saint Catherine)
In 1832, the ravaging finger of cholera hit every home and house in the great city of Paris.
This terrible epidemic, a disease without cure, struck hundreds and beleaguered many more. And yet, an exceptional phenomenon was noticed. Those who devoutly wore a certain small medal around their neck were spared or relieved from the epidemic. Symptoms of the plague were observed to leave the victims and withdraw into the gutters of Paris.
What medal, what power, was this that through the course of time triumphed over such devastating odds? The answer laid among the winding streets of Paris, specifically at the bolted doors of a small sanctuary known as the Rue de Bac.

Novena Prayer of St. Pius X to the Immaculate Virgin Mary- Followed By A Pater Nostra, An Ave, And A Glory Be
O most holy Virgin who didst find favor in God’s sight and hast become His Mother; O Virgin, immaculate in body and soul, in thy faith and in thy love, look down with pity on the wretched who in our need seek thy powerful protection.
The evil serpent on whom was cast the primal curse continues, alas, to attack and ensnare the poor children of Eve. But thou, our Blessed Mother, our Queen and our Advocate, thou who from the first instant of thy conception didst crush the head of this cruel enemy, receive our prayers. United to thee with one heart, we beseech thee to present them before the throne of God.
May we never be caught in the snares around us, but rather may we all reach the harbor of salvation. Despite the awesome perils which threaten, may God’s Church and all Christian society sing out once again the hymn of deliverance, of victory and of peace. Amen.
