Father Gordon MacRae:
~ A Catholic Priest Unjustly Accused, Refusing to Cop a Plea.
This would be a good time to stop and pray --- assuming you're up that late?
Which I may not be tonight. I was stranded downtown last night. Could not get to any place to sleep until after 1 a.m.

We have had a rather Catholic month lately, here in June --- thank heavens.
We need more of those. Well, actually, each day is Catholic, right?
Saints Peter and Paul , June 29th
|St. Paul must be the one with the book?|
Monsignor's homily compared Sts. Peter and Paul to Romulus and Remus. He said Romulus and Remus founded the Roman Empire --- or secular Rome.
|A very auspicious beginning|
for a new priest.
Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, June 27thThat new priest, who celebrated his first Mass last night?
Well, he was ordained on Friday, June 27th.
I found the above picture on this website.
Of course, the First Friday devotion of each month is also a devotion to the Sacred Heart.
Corpus Christi ProcessionWell, that was a bit of a tough one. I'm old, overweight, and have high blood pressure. My city is very humid, and it was in the 80's temperature-wise.
Yet, so is my bishop, and he had many more layers on than I did ---- plus, no water bottle :-(
Everybody was okay. I started to feel a little dizzy. Our bishop stuck it out all the way through, as well --- We had a stop with a homily before marching on to our second church, where our bishop said Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
A wonderful and beautiful Catholic tradition. Many cities do not have such a procession.
The Nativity of St. John the Baptist, June 24 this yearOur parish priest points out that there is a certain poetic beauty in that St. John was born in June, just six months before the day that we celebrate as Our Lord's birth. (Although we don't really know when Our Lord was born.)
Elizabeth would have been in her second trimester, when the Blessed Mother was in her first, right after the Annunciation.
