View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Rosaries Around The World This Sunday

From a Catholic News Agency report:

As part of the International Marian Festival taking place in France August 14-19, the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary will be prayed on the world’s five continents beginning at 5 p.m. (Paris time) on Sunday, August 16.

The Rosary will be prayed with Scripture readings, plus meditations from John Paul II, who, during a visit to France in 1986, consecrated the world to the Virgin Mary.

According to organizers, the purpose of the worldwide Rosary is “to pray for peace, for the Church, for France, for the world and for the mission of each one of us in particular.”

By the way, 5 p.m. Paris time is 11 a.m. Eastern time and 9 a.m. Pacific time. (With the 11 a.m. time for here in Rochester N.Y., I will be back from Mass in time.)

Thanks, Lee.

Happy Feast of St. Clare to all.

We pray the rosary before the TLM each Sunday, except Sundays when there is a High Mass. So we will pray it this Sunday too along with all the others.
