  1. Do Catholics "worship" Mary?: An Ancient Perspective

    A common objection or charge by Protestants and other Christian groups against the Catholic Church, (and Orthodox Churches as well) is that the Veneration of Our Lady and the other Saints is tantamount to "worship." These past several months I have looked into ancient paganism and how the pre-Christian pagans viewed things, (as well as how different their views are from both renaissance, and modern misunderstandings of pre-Christian pagans) and it has revealed to me a new insight and...
  2. A Snowy Dawn

    This morning I was greeted with an early snowfall, and it's actually still snowing now, as I type this. I consider it to be a beautiful and peaceful conclusion to two weeks in which I've made huge improvements with my mental health and issues. Starting around Oct. 13th, the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, I started on a journey of sorts in which I overcame a lot of my mental issues. It's difficult to go into details on it, but I'll discuss two things that contributed to my...
  3. Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

    This will probably be my last blog post for awhile, and I may even be taking a break from this site as a whole for a bit; until I get into the swing of work and university this season. I wanted to do an entry for Our Lady's Nativity on September 8th, but have been unable to do so due to my difficulties to get everything in order for work and university. September 15th is a of Our Lady under Her title of Our Lady of Sorrows, and the primary aspect of this devotion is the Seven Sorrows of Our...
  4. Mary and Veronica: A True Story of Forgiveness

    It's a long story but one day someone shared with me A True Story of Forgiveness, which came from this pamphlet by France Hogan([URL]https://www.franceshogan.com/Assets/books/Forgiveness.pdf[/URL]) It's been on my mind a lot, so I've decided to share it here on this blog: A TRUE STORY OF FORGIVENESS Before we bring our discussion to a close I would like to share with you the story of Veronica. It is a true story but the names and circumstances have been changed to protect the participants. It...
  5. The Assumption and Mono No Aware

    Our Lady of Akita August 15th marks the Feast of the Assumption, that is, the day Our Lady was assumed body and soul into Heaven. This is one of the Four Marian Dogmas of the Catholic Faith, it was infallibly defined by Pope Pius XII on November 1, 1950, in his apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deus, the latest time to date that a Pope has exercised his infallibility. The belief that Our Lady was assumed body and soul into Heaven was held long before it was declared a dogma, as were...
  6. Feast of Our Lady of the Snows and the Summertime of the Faith

    August 5th is the Feast of Our Lady of the Snows, it's also the Feast of Blessed Frederick Jansoone up here in Canada, but I don't know enough about him yet to talk about him. The Feast commemorates a Marian Miracle that occurred during the Pontificate of Pope Liberius; a Roman Patrician named John was without heir and so decided along with his wife, that they would donate their wealth in a way that would honour Our Lady. The two prayed to Our Lady, that She may show them how She would like...
  7. The Thief and the Queen, Chapter 1: There is a Thief (Rough Draft) (Part 2)

    Chapter 1 There is a Thief (Continued) “Your Majesty, my Lady!” Another officer entered the tent, this one was accompanied a group of soldiers and a man they had captured, he had long dark messy hair, messy facial hair, and a rough, muscular build; it was Haroman. “Speak officer!” Answered Queen Andromé, again not bothering with formalities. “We caught this thief in one of our arsenal tents. We searched through his belongings and found two items we think you should take a look.” “Show...
  8. The Thief and the Queen, Chapter 1: There is a Thief (Rough Draft) (Part 1)

    Chapter 1 There is a Thief Haroman saw many orange glows in the direction of the capital city of Háloma. He was traveling southeast pass the capital. What an unusual night this is! He thought to himself. Is the capital really on fire!?! Haroman turned and headed straight east towards Háloma. He passed through the farmlands and orchards of the outer rural area, it was September and the crops were ready for harvesting. The thought of stealing some of the food crossed Haroman’s mind. He was...
