I remember St. Thomas's Summa Theologica was placed on the altar during the Council of Trent.


'Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray.'

St. Louis Marie de Montfort

"Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought."
Venerable John Paul II
Brilliant words by Pope JPII!  Cheesy

There's no such thing as "freedom" in the sense that our society likes to talk about today.  If we are not trying to serve our Lord with our whole hearts then we are slaves to the evil one!

I thought so too  Smiley
In general, freedom means we have the legal rights to do or say whatever we want to do or say as long as in so doing we do not offend others, we do not try to force our points of view down others’ throats, we do not harm others etc.
With that in mind, are we really free? I’d say no, and a very good thing too!  I think the quote from the late Pope JPII is exactly it. That should be the definition of  freedom. Smiley

"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying."

What a beautiful way to die!

It is such an important thing to die a good death. What could be more important?

To have the cross before one's eyes.. to have the holy names of Jesus and Mary upon your lips.. to have Extreme Unction..  to die a martyr's death..

Let us pray for happy deaths! St. Joseph, pray for our departures!

Saint Joseph, patron of the dying pray for us, that we be delivered from the snares of the devil and eternal death,
that we may merit to attain everlasting joy, through Christ our Lord.

Good to hear! Cheesy

'Because the martyrs were devout men and women, fire, flame, wheel and sword seemed to be flowers and perfume to them. If devotion can sweeten the most cruel torments and even death itself, what must it do for virtuous actions?'
