Starting Quinquagesima Sunday Off Right: Light and Love Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

St. Bernadette Soubirous, nearly illiterate Occitan (not Basque) peasant girl who struggled to answer even the most basic questions her catechism class. Model of humility and charity. Instrument of God, key confirmer of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception.

Today is, addition to being Quinquagesima Sunday – the last Sunday before the beginning of Lent – is also the Feast of the Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France in ARSH 1858.

The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul in light and love. Then the soul appreciates these words, ‘Come all you who are sick, I will restore your health.’
-St. Bernadette Soubirous

And furthermore I consider that islam must be destroyed.
