Islam’s Thousand-Year War on Christendom – On Catholic Family News
At a time when Catholic youth are taught that Islam means peace, pilgrimage and prayer, and Catholic adults are under the impression that Muslims are a misunderstood minority who only want to share their values and their baba ghanoush, it’s refreshing to occasionally make contact with reality.
At that time war and discord were everywhere, and false teachings were spreading throughout many parts of Europe. The Calvinist and Lutheran heresy was gradually seeping from Switzerland and Germany into northern Italy. The Turkish invasion was also a constant danger, especially in southern Europe.
All research points to diseases of every kind coming from our FOOD supply
It’s a plague sparing no family, who has at least one or multiple relatives , cousins , and friends of every family with a major illness at a quantity and frequency comparable to no previous generation in recorded history
The pharmaceutical industry is partnered with the majority of the doctor’s corporate medical consortiums and are under all sorts of restrictions Some have even bought into a genetics , hereditary cause, coming from evolution – negatively evolving genes , most of which is nonsense A person’s family can have susceptibility to one type of disease or another but the triggering of the disease is caused by poisons in various common foods
What many are not aware of is that fighting globalism take over and poisoning (by mass production techniques) of the majority of foods we eat is a fight that has it’s origins in traditional Catholicism and the traditional Catholic workers guilds
This came even before the corporations in developed western countries took over the majority of the farming, agriculture, food production, and distribution businesses .
It’s a complex subject whose history cannot be expounded upon here adequately for lack of sufficient space and time in a single simple post
It’s roots go back to some key Papal encyclicals that began to fight the modernism that began to enter into Catholic Social teaching in the late 1800s and the industrialization that came on its heals
The changes in the west began to become implemented at the global opportunities in post of the American depression and the Jewish and Mason influenced banking systems in Europe that became fertile ground for antagonism and anti-Semitism against Jewish merchant networks and banking – and then ultimately collectivism , distributionism and the challenge to property rights.
From Pius XI Quadragesimo Anno Latin for 40 years (Indicating 40 years from =Rerum Novarum –) Leo XIII’s encyclical on the condition of workers, their dignity, organization, and Catholic workers guilds – Pius XI’s QA encyclical went forward from there in teaching on the social and ethical implications of the social and economic order. Pius XI began to see and teach on the corruption of the new order prior to leading financial countries in the west pulling out of the gold standard ( a major changing factor in the world ) and the institution of globalism banking, the crushing of the small business, the family generational farmers, and eventually the infiltration of the food supply and food production take over by mass production and mass distribution . This became a system that two world wars gave secondary assistance to in creating the machinations of mass production and accelerated distribution
Some brief excerpts
97. What We have taught about the reconstruction and perfection of social order can surely in no wise be brought to realization without reform of morality, the very record of history clearly shows.
102 Agriculture, wherein the greater portion of mankind honorably and honestly procures its livelihood. This group, too, is being crushed with hardships and with difficulties, to which Our Predecessor devotes attention in several places in his Encyclical and which We Ourselves have touched upon more than once in Our present Letter.
116. Yet let no one think that all the socialist groups or factions that are not communist have, without exception, recovered their senses to this extent either in fact or in name. For the most part they do not reject the class struggle or the abolition of ownership, but only in some degree modify them
138. Therefore, out of this new diffusion throughout the world of the spirit of the Gospel, which is the spirit of Christian moderation and universal charity, We are confident there will come that longed-for and full restoration of human society in Christ, and that “Peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ,” to accomplish which, from the very beginning of Our Pontificate..
In comes Father Denis Fahey’s traditional Catholic social teachings from the 1930s through the 1950s , and whose talks on the BBC by the 1940s began to be banned by big business sponsors of local and international radio programs.
He started to teach on the Catholic responsibility to fight the corruption of the separation of the wheat germ , the poisoning and the bleaching of white bread , the spreading of disease based on these new mass manufacturing techniques
Father Denis Fahey’s expose book The Mystical Body of Christ and The Reorganization of Society goes into many background subjects on how the original corruption of usury (interest business) violated the teachings of the Doctor Of The Catholic Church –St Thomas Aquinas and led to a paganized “ world for profit” that would eventually begin killing each other for ‘profit ‘– became in certain respects a ‘prophet’ He goes on to also talk about the chickens and the meat and what they began to feed them
The specific area of his book I point you to is his traditional Catholic teachings against the corruption of the food supply and his call to Catholic families to stick together and pass down the truths Sacred Tradition and the oral traditions that the mainstream suppress but will ultimately save our lives in this life and the next .
Page 472 to Page 478 in his page numberings (Seen at the top of each page) Page 508 to 515 in the pdf
In comes a Doctor that gave up big business and “corporate medicine” to change the lives of countless people through healthy food while this Doctor does not necessarily support and/ or advocate a royalism or an integralism as described in traditional Catholic teachings He supports the same thread of the corruption of the food supply and the road to health and restoration as found in the previous threads
Lest anyone challenge his credential , he is a Yale honors graduate – Medical College of Georgia Graduate -Cardiothoracic Surgeon – And former head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda School of Medicine – which he left to save people by renovating their diet and seeking a restoration minded life.

If the animals -chickens and cattle -are being fed a certain type of corn and that modification is poisoning both them and us along with a whole host of other sugars, fruits, and dairies of various varieties – The body will incarnate a whole host of various sicknesses which will attack the weakest organ in every different person’s body differently – The medical professional will insist your illness is unrelated to your friend or your brother, sister, mother, father, cousin aunt or uncle’s illness and all you need to do is take xyz prescription or be vaccinated by 1.23, and then maybe by 4,5,6 vaccine and on and on.
Many other doctors not well off enough to expose the truth and or for fear of being run out of the country have not spoken out

Pagan Natural Uprightness and the Extravagance of Apostates – Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
These are three ultra-modern churches, one Protestant, another Jewish, and the last, Catholic, on an American university campus. None of them bears any trace of their respective traditions or spirit. Placed thus side by side, they seem to be three equally legitimate species of one same genus, the religion genus. A like spirit gives them all a like physiognomy.
One has the impression that they have just one soul, that the force which fastens them to the ground is an immanent, sinister and cold mystery, giving them an aspect of three drops of the same liquid, three boxes filled with the same substance, three factories producing the same product.
It is, in our way of seeing, the very soul of contemporary neopaganism, the archetype of the worst of everything that ancient paganism had, corroding all the cultural manifestations in which it is nestled much more efficaciously than did ancient paganism and reducing everything to desolating uniformity

For those who have not studied it in depth and wish to know what IT is….
It is even beyond progressivism and modernism …it is a syncretism that seeks , and in many ways already has , to overthrow immutability of truth, evolution of man from ape is only part of it …evolution of truth is its goal …a freeing of personal conscience to each’s own personal truth …..internal immanence corresponding to Vatican II’s ‘nouvelle theologie’ evolves to ‘nouvelle Christiente’ a new Christendom . It’s ecclesial supporters giggle when then talk about it in saying , we have no idea where in the next generation the places they will take it.

From the book of Revelation 17:1-18 Babylon the great harlot
I, John, watched and one of the seven angels who were holding the seven bowls came to me and said: “Come, I will show you the judgment in store for the great harlot who sits by the waters of the deep. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the earth’s inhabitants have grown drunk on the wine of her lewdness.”
The angel then carried me away in spirit to a desolate place where I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast which was covered with blasphemous names. This beast had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and pearls and other jewels. In her hand she held a gold cup that was filled with the abominable and sordid deeds of her lewdness. On her forehead was written a symbolic name, “Babylon the great, mother of harlots and all the world’s abominations.” I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy ones and the blood of those martyred for their faith in Jesus.
When I saw her I was greatly astonished. The angel said to me: “Why are you so taken aback? I will explain to you the symbolism of the woman and of the seven-headed and ten-horned beast carrying her. The beast you saw existed once but now exists no longer. It will come up from the abyss once more before going to final ruin. All the men of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of the living from the creation of the world shall be amazed when they see the beast, for it existed once and now exists no longer, and yet it will exist again.
Here is the clue for one who possesses wisdom! The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits enthroned. They are also seven kings: five have already fallen, one lives now, and the last has not yet come; but when he does come he will remain only a short while. The beast which existed once but now exists no longer, even though it is an eighth king, is really one of the seven and is on its way to ruin. The ten horns you saw represent ten kings who have not yet been crowned; they will possess royal authority along with the beast, but only for an hour. Then they will come to agreement and bestow their power and authority on the beast. They will fight against the Lamb but the Lamb will conquer them, for he is the Lord of lords and the King of kings; victorious, too, will be his followers—the ones who were called: the chosen and the faithful.”
The angel then said to me: “The waters on which you saw the harlot enthroned are large numbers of peoples and nations and tongues. The ten horns you saw on the beast will turn against the harlot with hatred; they will strip off her finery and leave her naked; they will devour her flesh and set her on fire. For God has put it into their minds to carry out his plan, by making them agree to bestow their sovereignty on the beast until his will is accomplished. The woman you saw is the great city which has sovereignty over the kings of the earth.”
From a letter to the Corinthians by Saint Clement, pope The preservation of unity
Beloved, Jesus Christ is our salvation, he is the high priest through whom we present our offerings and the helper who supports us in our weakness. Through him our gaze penetrates the heights of heaven and we see as in a mirror, the most holy face of God. Through Christ the eyes of our hearts are opened, and our weak and clouded understanding reaches up toward the light. Through him the Lord God willed that we should taste eternal knowledge, for Christ is the radiance of God’s glory, and as much greater than the angels as the name God has given him is superior to theirs.
So then, my brothers, let us do battle with all our might under his unerring command. Think of the men serving under our military commanders. How well disciplined they are! How readily and submissively they carry out orders! Not everyone can be a prefect, a tribune, a centurion, or a captain of fifty, but each man in his own rank executes the orders of the emperor and the officers in command. The great cannot exist without those of humble condition, nor can those of humble condition exist without the great. Always it is the harmonious working together of its various parts that insures the well-being of the whole. Take our own body as an example: The head is helpless without the feet; and the feet can do nothing without the heart. Even our least important members are useful and necessary to the whole body, and all work together for its well-being in harmonious subordination.
Let us, then, preserve the unity of the body that we form in Christ Jesus, and let everyone give his neighbor the deference to which his particular gifts entitle him. Let the strong care for the weak and the weak respect the strong. Let the wealthy assist the poor and the poor man thank God for giving him someone to supply his needs. The wise man should show his wisdom not by his eloquence but by good works; the humble man should not proclaim his own humility, but leave others to do so; nor must the man who preserves his chastity ever boast of it, but recognize that the ability to control his desires has been given him by another.
Think, my brothers, of how we first came into being, of what we were at the first moment of our existence. Think of the dark tomb out of which our Creator brought us into his world where he had his gifts prepared for us even before we were born. All this we owe to him and for everything we must give him thanks. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I Was Wrong to Dread the “Pre-1955” Holy Week – “The Ancient Rites Blew Me Away” – On The Watershed Project
In a staggering turn of events, Rome gave permission this year for certain parishes to use the ancient rites of Holy Week—the so-called “Pre-1955 version.” If everything goes well for three years, the permission might be broadened. Until last week, I had only experienced the 1962 version, which is done according to Pius XII reforms that became mandatory in 1955.
From an Easter homily by Melito of Sardis, bishop The Easter praise of Christ
We should understand, beloved, that the paschal mystery is at once old and new, transitory and eternal, corruptible and incorruptible, mortal and immortal. In terms of the Law it is old, in terms of the Word it is new. In its figure it is passing, in its grace it is eternal. It is corruptible in the sacrifice of the lamb, incorruptible in the eternal life of the Lord. It is mortal in his burial in the earth, immortal in his resurrection from the dead.
The Law indeed is old, but the Word is new. The type is transitory, but grace is eternal. The lamb was corruptible, but the Lord is incorruptible. He was slain as a lamb; he rose again as God. He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, yet he was not a sheep. He was silent as a lamb, yet he was not a lamb. The type has passed away; the reality has come. The lamb gives place to God, the sheep gives place to a man, and the man is Christ, who fills the whole of creation. The sacrifice of the lamb, the celebration of the Passover, and the prescriptions of the Law have been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Under the old Law, and still more under the new dispensation, everything pointed toward him.
Both the Law and the Word came forth from Zion and Jerusalem, but now the Law has given place to the Word, the old to the new. The commandment has become grace, the type a reality. The lamb has become a Son, the sheep a man, and man, God.
The Lord, though he was God, became man. He suffered for the sake of those who suffer, he was bound for those in bonds, condemned for the guilty, buried for those who lie in the grave; but he rose from the dead, and cried aloud: Who will contend with me? Let him confront me. I have freed the condemned, brought the dead back to life, raised men from their graves. Who has anything to say against me? I, he said, am the Christ; I have destroyed death, triumphed over the enemy, trampled hell underfoot, bound the strong one, and taken men up to the heights of heaven: I am the Christ.
Come, then, all you nations of men, receive forgiveness for the sins that defile you. I am your forgiveness. I am the Passover that brings salvation. I am the lamb who was immolated for you. I am your ransom, your life, your resurrection, your light, I am your salvation and your king. I will bring you to the heights of heaven. With my own right hand I will raise you up, and I will show you the eternal Father
From a discourse by Saint Anastasius of Antioch It was necessary that Christ should suffer and so enter into his glory
Christ, who has shown by his words and actions that he was truly God and Lord of the universe, said to his disciples as he was about to go up to Jerusalem: We are going up to Jerusalem now, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the Gentiles and the chief priests and scribes to be scourged and mocked and crucified.
These words bore out the predictions of the prophets, who had foretold the death he was to die in Jerusalem. From the beginning holy Scripture had foretold Christ’s death, the sufferings that would precede it, and what would happen to his body afterward. Scripture also affirmed that these things were going to happen to one who was immortal and incapable of suffering because he was God.
Only by reflecting upon the meaning of the incarnation can we see how it is possible to say with perfect truth both that Christ suffered and that he was incapable of suffering, and why the Word of God, in himself incapable of suffering, came to suffer. In fact, man could have been saved in no other way, as Christ alone knew and those to whom he revealed it. For he knows all the secrets of the Father, even as the Spirit penetrates the depths of all mysteries.
It was necessary for Christ to suffer: his passion was absolutely unavoidable. He said so himself when he called his companions dull and slow to believe because they failed to recognize that he had to suffer and so enter into his glory. Leaving behind him the glory that had been his with the Father before the world was made, he had gone forth to save his people. This salvation, however, could be achieved only by the suffering of the author of our life, as Paul taught when he said that the author of life himself was made perfect through suffering. Because of us he was deprived of his glory for a little while, the glory that was his as the Father’s only-begotten Son, but through the cross this glory is seen to have been restored to him in a certain way in the body that he had assumed. Explaining what water the Savior referred to when he said: He that has faith in me shall have rivers of living water flowing from within him, John says in his gospel that he was speaking of the Holy Spirit which those who believed in him were to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified. The glorification he meant was his death upon the cross for which the Lord prayed to the Father before undergoing his passion, asking his Father to give him the glory that he had in his presence before the world began.
Fordham University’s Radio Station WFUV News Director , George Bodarky responds To TCE and our complaints about Sunday afternoon News From Ireland program and Declan O’Byrne’s biased pro-culture of death endless pro-Mcaleese rants.
Mrs. Mary Mcleese is you may recall is the pro-homosexual, pro abortion , pro contraception , pro euthanasia pro- female priests, pseudo Catholic, Independent Fianna Fail , ex- Prime Minister of Ireland.
Mr. Bodarky’s response is as follows,
Thank you very much for reaching out to us. It’s very much appreciated when listeners take the time to hold us accountable for news coverage, whether locally produced or the news from Ireland. As you might be aware, the news from Ireland is a very valuable service to listeners here in the New York metropolitan area. It’s a critical way for Irish listeners in our region to remain connected to events back “home.” As with all of our news coverage, we want to be comprehensive and accurate, and present multiple viewpoints. In listening back to Declan O’Byrne’s coverage of Ms. McAleese’s comments at a Rome conference, we didn’t flag any personal bias on Declan’s part. He attributed all of Ms. McAleese’s viewpoints to Ms. McAleese. That said, while objective in his reporting, I would agree that his story was lengthier than necessary and could have used a firm edit. Ms. McAleese’s comments at the Voices of Faith conference received a fair amount of coverage from other objective news sources, and again, coverage of this event falls within WFUV’s mission of providing multiple viewpoints on issues, including issues involving the Catholic Church. Independent, objective journalism is always our goal in the WFUV newsroom, but so is the importance of an edit, in which Declan could have done better in this instance. We will communicate that message to him.

From the letter to the Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 Jesus Christ, the great high priest
Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession of faith. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet never sinned. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need.
Every high priest is taken from among men and made their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal patiently with erring sinners, for he himself is beset by weakness and so must make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. One does not take this honor on his own initiative, but only when called by God as Aaron was.
Even Christ did not glorify himself with the office of high priest; he received it from the One who said to him,
“You are my Son; today I have begotten you”; just as he says in another place, “You are a priest forever,according to the order of Melchizedek.”
In the days when he was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to God, who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when perfected, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, designated by God as high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
From an Easter homily by Saint Melito of Sardis, bishop The lamb that was slain has delivered us from death and given us life
There was much proclaimed by the prophets about the mystery of the Passover: that mystery is Christ, and to him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
For the sake of suffering humanity he came down from heaven to earth, clothed himself in that humanity in the Virgin’s womb, and was born a man. Having then a body capable of suffering, he took the pain of fallen man upon himself; he triumphed over the diseases of soul and body that were its cause, and by his Spirit, which was incapable of dying, he dealt man’s destroyer, death, a fatal blow.
He was led forth like a lamb; he was slaughtered like a sheep. He ransomed us from our servitude to the world, as he had ransomed Israel from the land of Egypt; he freed us from our slavery to the devil, as he had freed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. He sealed our souls with his own Spirit, and the members of our body with his own blood.
He is the One who covered death with shame and cast the devil into mourning, as Moses cast Pharaoh into mourning. He is the One who smote sin and robbed iniquity of offspring. He is the One who brought us out of slavery into freedom, out of darkness into light, out of death into life, out of tyranny into an eternal kingdom; who made us a new priesthood, a people chosen to be his own for ever. He is the Passover that is our salvation.
It is he who endured every kind of suffering in all those who foreshadowed him. In Abel he was slain, in Isaac bound, in Jacob exiled, in Joseph sold, in Moses exposed to die. He was sacrificed in the Passover lamb, persecuted in David, dishonored in the prophets.
It is he who was made man of the Virgin, he who was hung on the tree; it is he who was buried in the earth, raised from the dead, and taken up to the heights of heaven. He is the mute lamb, the slain lamb, the lamb born of Mary, the fair ewe. He was seized from the flock, dragged off to be slaughtered, sacrificed in the evening, and buried at night. On the tree no bone of his was broken; in the earth his body knew no decay. He is the One who rose from the dead, and who raised man from the depths of the tomb.
Declan O’Byrne’s news from Ireland at 2:00pm on Sundays (90.7FM In NY and Northern NJ) has become a serious concern to both us and our extended family and friends
In this last show, this past Sunday, he went on an anti-Catholic tirade in a very lengthy support of Mrs. Mary McAleese as if she was either his mother or some form of a new Saint. Mrs. McAleese, as you folks I am sure know well, is not only the former President of Ireland but an apostate Catholic. She opposes our Church’s teaching on homosexuality , most likely due to her outspoken pro-sodomite son. She tells European Catholics the Church is wrong on its teachings and once adopting this position, as we have seen elsewhere, one naturally gravitates towards cherry picking other Church teachings each person’s personal interpretation and emotions feels at odds with today. She opposes celibate male Priesthood and believes Priests should also be Priestesses , married, and or homosexual. She opposes our Church’s teaching on contraception which gave rise the legalization of abortion
As for the murder of the unborn, Declan O’Byrne, continued to rave on as to Mrs. McAleese support of Ireland’s referendum on the 8th Amendment overrun attempt, while pro-life Irish Catholics are largely rejecting the Government’s plan for a UK-style abortion regime in Ireland. This former President of Ireland, it is believed, has animosity towards our Roman Catholic Church due to family members being abused by a Priest, Father Malachy Finnegan, in her northern Ireland homeland.
My wife and I have this newsblog to which we network with both other Catholic apostolates and over a thousand different connected souls to which we intend to inform not only of this situation but other similar outrageous predicaments to which everyday Catholics can have an impact. In today’s world unlike the Catholic world of years ago only large public outcry has any semblance of a substantial impact. There are many people that to this day gather round the radio to listen to the news from Ireland on Sundays and this version of the news corrupts and mis-forms the youth of the tri-state area. Mrs. McAlesse was also just recently ‘officially’ banned in sanctions by the Vatican from speaking in Rome at a Women’s Day Conference due to her apostate anti-Catholic views which was also not mentioned.
These highly subjective ant-Catholic news items become a presentation of WFUV views and by extension the Jesuit Catholic University of Fordham in the Bronx and its extended NYC locations representing same and Irish people & Irish American people in general and are more over are false and highly offensive – Please help to correct this by letting as many people as possible know of this tragic situation going on at Fordham University, WFUV and the beloved Ceol na nGael program which we may have to abandon and urge other Irish Catholics to do same as part of their after Mass Sundays sacrifice.
Here are some stories substantiating Mrs. McAleese anti-Catholic views if you had not already known of her opposition to Catholicism

Sr. Mary Catherine Redmond, PBVM
Pastoral Minister with Christian Life Communities
From a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, pope The virtue of charity
In the gospel of John the Lord says: In this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for each other. In a letter of the same apostle we read: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
The faithful should therefore enter into themselves and make a true judgment on their attitudes of mind and heart. If they find some store of love’s fruit in their hearts, they must not doubt God’s presence within them. If they would increase their capacity to receive so great a guest, they should practice greater generosity in doing good, with persevering charity.
If God is love, charity should know no limit, for God cannot be confined.
Any time is the right time for works of charity, but these days of Lent provide a special encouragement. Those who want to be present at the Lord’s Passover in holiness of mind and body should seek above all to win this grace, for charity contains all other virtues and covers a multitude of sins.
As we prepare to celebrate that greatest of all mysteries, by which the blood of Jesus Christ did away with our sins, let us first of all make ready the sacrificial offerings of works of mercy. In this way we shall give to those who have sinned against us what God in his goodness has already given us.
Let us now extend to the poor and those afflicted in different ways a more open-handed generosity, so that God may be thanked through many voices and the relief of the needy supported by our fasting. No act of devotion on the part of the faithful gives God more pleasure than that which is lavished on his poor. Where he finds charity with its loving concern, there he recognizes the reflection of his own fatherly care.
In these acts of giving do not fear a lack of means. A generous spirit is itself great wealth. There can be no shortage of material for generosity where it is Christ who feeds and Christ who is fed. In all this activity there is present the hand of him who multiplies the bread by breaking it, and increasing it by giving it away.
The giver of alms should be free from anxiety and full of joy. His gain will be greatest when he keeps back least for himself. The holy apostle Paul tells us: He who provides seed for the sower will also provide bread for eating; he will provide you with more seed, and will increase the harvest of your goodness, in Christ Jesus our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
Saint Frances of Rome was born in 1384 in Rome, the daughter of a wealthy aristocratic couple. At the age of 12, she was arranged to marry Lorenzo Ponziani, Commander of the papal troops of Rome. Their marriage lasted forty years and bore three children. Rome was in chaos and ruins at the time after many battles between popes and anti-popes as well as periods of Neapolitan occupation. Tragically, Frances’ two daughters were killed, her husband seriously wounded, and her son nearly escaped ransom. These strifes led Frances into deep prayer and into a life of service.
She joined her sister, Vannozza, in traveling through the city caring for the sick and the poor. Frances turned part of her family’s estate into a hospital and ultimately, founded the Olivetan Oblates of Mary. This group of pious women was not cloistered or vowed but served the needs of their community through prayer and acts of charity. The group eventually grew to include a monastery, calling its members the Oblates of Saint Frances of Rome. After her husband’s death, Frances moved into the monastery and became its president. She was canonized in 1608 by Pope Paul V and is the patron saint of oblates.*
From the Moral Reflections on Job by Saint Gregory the Great, pope The mystery of our new life in Christ
Holy Job is a type of the Church. At one time he speaks for the body, at another for the head. As he speaks of its members he is suddenly caught up to speak in the name of their head. So it is here, where he says: I have suffered this without sin on my hands, for my prayer to God was pure.
Christ suffered without sin on his hands, for he committed no sin and deceit was not found on his lips. Yet he suffered the pain of the cross for our redemption. His prayer to God was pure, his alone out of all mankind, for in the midst of his suffering he prayed for his persecutors: Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.
Is it possible to offer, or even to imagine, a purer kind of prayer than that which shows mercy to one’s torturers by making intercession for them? It was thanks to this kind of prayer that the frenzied persecutors who shed the blood of our Redeemer drank it afterward in faith and proclaimed him to be the Son of God.
The text goes on fittingly to speak of Christ’s blood: Earth, do not cover over my blood, do not let my cry find a hiding place in you. When man sinned, God had said: Earth you are, and to earth you will return. Earth does not cover over the blood of our Redeemer, for every sinner, as he drinks the blood that is the price of his redemption, offers praise and thanksgiving, and to the best of his power makes that blood known to all around him.
Earth has not hidden away his blood, for holy Church has preached in every corner of the world the mystery of its redemption.
Notice what follows: Do not let my cry find a hiding place in you. The blood that is drunk, the blood of redemption, is itself the cry of our Redeemer. Paul speaks of the sprinkled blood that calls out more eloquently than Abel’s. Of Abel’s blood Scripture had written: The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the earth. The blood of Jesus calls out more eloquently than Abel’s, for the blood of Abel asked for the death of Cain, the fratricide, while the blood of the Lord has asked for, and obtained, life for his persecutors.
If the sacrament of the Lord’s passion is to work its effect in us, we must imitate what we receive and proclaim to mankind what we revere. The cry of the Lord finds a hiding place in us if our lips fail to speak of this, though our hearts believe in it. So that his cry may not lie concealed in us it remains for us all, each in his own measure, to make known to those around us the mystery of our new life in Christ.
From a homily In Praise of the Virgin Mother by Saint Bernard, abbot The whole world awaits Mary’s reply
You have heard, O Virgin, that you will conceive and bear a son; you have heard that it will not be by man but by the Holy Spirit. The angel awaits an answer; it is time for him to return to God who sent him. We too are waiting, O Lady, for your word of compassion; the sentence of condemnation weighs heavily upon us.
The price of our salvation is offered to you. We shall be set free at once if you consent. In the eternal Word of God we all came to be, and behold, we die. In your brief response we are to be remade in order to be recalled to life.
Tearful Adam with his sorrowing family begs this of you, O loving Virgin, in their exile from Paradise. Abraham begs it, David begs it. All the other holy patriarchs, your ancestors, ask it of you, as they dwell in the country of the shadow of death. This is what the whole earth waits for, prostrate at your feet. It is right in doing so, for on your word depends comfort for the wretched, ransom for the captive, freedom for the condemned, indeed, salvation for all the sons of Adam, the whole of your race.
Answer quickly, O Virgin. Reply in haste to the angel, or rather through the angel to the Lord. Answer with a word, receive the Word of God. Speak your own word, conceive the divine Word. Breathe a passing word, embrace the eternal Word.
Why do you delay, why are you afraid? Believe, give praise, and receive. Let humility be bold, let modesty be confident. This is no time for virginal simplicity to forget prudence. In this matter alone, O prudent Virgin, do not fear to be presumptuous. Though modest silence is pleasing, dutiful speech is now more necessary. Open your heart to faith, O blessed Virgin, your lips to praise, your womb to the Creator. See, the desired of all nations is at your door, knocking to enter. If he should pass by because of your delay, in sorrow you would begin to seek him afresh, the One whom your soul loves. Arise, hasten, open. Arise in faith, hasten in devotion, open in praise and thanksgiving. Behold the handmaid of the Lord, she says, be it done to me according to your word.

From a treatise Against Heresies by Saint Irenaeus, bishop on the plan of redemption through the Incarnation
God is man’s glory. Man is the vessel which receives God’s action and all his wisdom and power.
Just as a doctor is judged in his care for the sick, so God is revealed in his conduct with men. That is Paul’s reason for saying: God has made the whole world prisoner of unbelief that he may have mercy on all. He was speaking of man, who was disobedient to God, and cast off from immortality, and then found mercy, receiving through the Son of God the adoption he brings.
If man, without being puffed up or boastful, has a right belief regarding created things and their divine Creator, who, having given them being, holds them all in his power, and if man perseveres in God’s love, and in obedience and gratitude to him, he will receive greater glory from him. It will be a glory which will grow ever brighter until he takes on the likeness of the one who died for him.
He it was who took on the likeness of sinful flesh, to condemn sin and rid the flesh of sin, as now condemned. He wanted to invite man to take on his likeness, appointing man an imitator of God, establishing man in a way of life in obedience to the Father that would lead to the vision of God, and endowing man with power to receive the Father. He is the Word of God who dwelt with man and became the Son of Man to open the way for man to receive God, for God to dwell with man, according to the will of the Father.
For this reason the Lord himself gave as the sign of our salvation, the one who was born of the Virgin, Emmanuel. It was the Lord himself who saved them, for of themselves they had no power to be saved. For this reason Paul speaks of the weakness of man, and says: I know that no good dwells in my flesh, meaning that the blessing of our salvation comes not from us but from God. Again, he says: I am a wretched man; who will free me from this body doomed to die? Then he speaks of a liberator, thanks to Jesus Christ our Lord.
Isaiah says the same: Hands that are feeble, grow strong! Knees that are weak, take courage! Hearts that are faint, grow strong! Fear not; see, our God is judgement and he will repay. He himself will come and save us. He means that we could not be saved of ourselves but only with God’s help.
