I love him so much!
In reality, to die is sweet, rather than bitter. Death is but the privation of life, which is taken from us by the same God Who gave it.

True fasting lies is rejecting evil, holding one’s tongue, suppressing one’s hatred, and banishing one’s lust, evil words, lying, and betrayal of vows.

Let’s all pray for all our countrymen affected by the typhoon—those in Visayas, and Tacloban in particular. #prayfortacloban #yolanda #haiyan #philippines #popefrancis

Please pray for the Philippines. This has been such a hard year for us. We’ve had 24 storms, at least 6 of them major typhoons. We also had war and rebellion in some parts. Most regions have some kind of calamity to overcome. We need all the prayers you can spare.

Pope Names Alice von Hildebrand to Prestigious Order

Pope Francis has declared Catholic philosopher, author and teacher Alice von Hildebrand a Dame Grand Cross of the Equestrian Order of St. Gregory in recognition of her work, witness and service to the Church.

Cardinal Raymond Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, formally invested her in the chivalric order Oct. 30 at a gala dinner in New York celebrating her 90th birthday.

Cardinal Burke said that Pope Francis conferred the honor to recognize her “outstanding and faithful service” and “in public recognition of the esteem in which she is held in the Church.”

Membership in the Equestrian Order of St. Gregory, which dates back to 1831, is the highest honor a pope can bestow upon a layman. Membership is given to individuals who have served the Church and society and witnessed to their Catholic faith in an exemplary way.
