Parents: Bless your Children

Parents are extolled in the Old Testament to bless their children.  It is actually highly recommended in the CCC for parents to bless their children daily, or at least on special occasions.

Bear and I used to bless our eldest before bed using a blessing that parents were told to give to their children found in the old testament adding the Sign of the Cross at which point we'd trace the cross on her forehead with one's thumb.

NB: This was usually bestowed before bed, obviously

May God bless you and keep you.
May He let his face shine upon you
May He send flights of angels to protect you in your sleep.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit Child answers Amen!

I found another blessing similar but the child is named in my New Saint Joseph's Missal (2012-13), thought I would share.

Heavenly Father,
Bless N, and keep him/her in your love.
Grant him/her a good rest tonight,
and send your angels to protect him/her.
In the name of the Father, and of the + Son, and of the Holy Spirit

 Or if you want a really simple one that isn't too fussy
May God bless + you, N
and keep you in love
Child answers AMEN!

Woman's Sacrifice and then again

A woman is capable of more sacrifices than a man. Man is more apt to be a hero, through some great passionate outburst of heroism. But a woman's love makes a thousand small sacrifices, sprinkling them through the days and the months; their very repetition gives them the character of the commonplace. Not only her soul, but her body, has some share in the Calvary of Redemption; furthermore, she comes closer to death than man, whenever she brings forth a child.


--Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Life is Worth Living

Emphasis mine own

I went to confession this evening

I went to mass this morning.  I took communion this morning.  This evening I decided to take a walk and it just so happened that I was going to be in time for evening mass so I went in.  I noticed the priest with his purple stole sitting across from an empty chair and though, ah why not.  ( I was still relatively good since my last confession but extra grace never hurts, so I went to confession.  The guitarists were setting up so I said my penance and left. 

And Confession is supposed to make one feel better, that is odd because I feel absolutely horrible after wards.  And you know what the priest was very good and kind and absolutely orthodox about it, and yet I feel absolutely horrible.  I wonder if that was because having taken communion this morning I could take it again in the evening My sacrament felt a little incomplete, I fuess

The First Nations are IDLE NO MORE

I have a few possible answers

1> I am in total agreement with you.  You should be idle no more. Start by demanding that YOUR tribal chiefs and YOUR Band councils open up the books and SHOW YOU where YOUR money went.

2> Does anyone understand the meaning of the word"IDLE" and therefore what it means to be "IDLE NO MORE"  - It means you went out and got a job and are contributing the the wellbeing of society.- Nah, I didn't think so

Okay, right now those are my only two answers.  I would like to check a few facts before continuing

The Spirit's Sword: Huh? Clinton is Father of the Year

The Spirit's Sword: Huh?

What's next? Our very own Judy Rebick named Mother if the Year?

Apophis set to return to earth

Interesting name for an asteroid.

Originally the Egyptian God of chaos, devourer of souls and  enemy of Ra, god of the sun and ma'at(order) {Well  more an opposer then enemy. The enemy of Ra was Aton, but I am not getting into that now.} 

Apparently the asteroid came very close to the earth back in 2004 and caused a slight stir, not chaos as befits its anme but a proper stir

Well Apophis  is due to come back in 2029 and again in 2032, when there is also a faint possibility it will strike the earth..

Now do I think that the world will end in 2029 or more accurately in 2032 ah no..  but if you are worried, concerned, even stirred, start repenting now.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
