Madonna and Child, by Luca Della Robbia
Have a wonderful SUMMER BREAK!
June is the month of the Sacred Heart. A devotion long practiced privately, it was officially approved in the 1800s. Devotion the Sacred Heart encourages participation in Holy Hour Eucharistic Adoration and to receive Holy Communion on the first Friday of every month. Read more about devotion to the Sacred Heart by clicking here.
July is the month dedicated to the Precious Blood of Our Lord; the Feast of the Precious Blood is the first Sunday of the month. Father Faber describes why we honor the Blood of Christ in The Precious Blood: The Price of our Salvation.
There are indulgences attached to devotion to the Precious Blood: seven years and seven quarantines each day for public devotion; plenary indulgence on any day in July or 1-8 August, after having assisted eight times at a public function under the usual conditions; if the devotion is held privately, three hundred days each day with a plenary indulgence on 31 July, or 1-8 August.
The month of August is dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament, and increased adoration of the Eucharist is encouraged. August is also dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and on August 15th, the church celebrates the Assumption of Mary into heaven.Reprinted with permission from http://www.aquinasandmore.com/catholic-articles/monthly-dedications-of-the-church-year/article/184
"Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you." - St. Paul: Philippians 4:6-9
Prayer of St. Thomas
Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen.
Behold the Lamb of God! "Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds him." - Padre Pio
