The Fall Classic

DS: I am enjoying the cooler weather and watching the Series as it begins...

...guess who we're rootin' for?

VEE: Go Rangers!!! I dont usually watch sports until the play offs when I feel the teams are really giving it their all, then it's exciting.  As for the weather it was -2C or 27F this morning and if that was as cold as it gets I'd be happy.

The Brown Scapular


. If a soldier is wounded or killed in combat others can tell by looking at his dog tag who he is right?  We wear our brown scapulars in this life, this battle against the world the flesh and the devil not because we are perfect so we can go through things unscathed. We wear it always always always so that when we fall and are covered in the muck and mud of our sins Mary will come along, recognize her poor child and drag our sorry butt out to her Son the Divine Physician.

 Mary is our mother and like any good mother she goes looking for her missing child, and like any good mother she will ask those around her to help her find that child.   When a solider goes AWOL doesnt the military go after them? You can run, you can try to hide but special forces are after you and will do anything to save your soul.

Beautiful analogy Vee, because we are soldiers in this world, members of the Church Militant, battling satan through the muck and the mire, carrying each other along the Way, the Truth and the Life. I thank God for His Church, because together we support one another in this battle. The Brown Scapular is our dog tag, and the Blessed Mother is one of the Generals of the army....

Feast of St Thérèse


Therese said she would spend her heaven doing good on Earth, however, I think that gets white washed into a generic kind of candy coated do-gooding. like the tooth fairy or Easter bunny.  She is out to save souls. Her relics travel the world but she is not confined to that plexiglass case. She came to me spiritually as not all prisoners are in a literal prison. Remember I wrote that Id been to Confession but not absolved until I changed? At a total loss I prayed that novena to Therese with very low expectations. She beat the crap out of me! Im still sore <_<  Oh and her Act of Oblation to Merciful Love ftw!!!! 

Here is a good video someone posted on phatmass
