http://www.piusxiipope.info/petition.htm In his book, Antisemitismo, Rabbi Zolli states: “World Jewry owes a great debt of gratitude to Pius XII for his repeated and pressing appeals for justice on behalf of the Jews and, when these did not prevail, for his strong protests against evil laws and procedures.” Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of one of the truly great figures of the twentieth century, Pope Pius XII.

Fugite, partes adversae,

Flee ye adversaries!
The Lion of the Tribe of Juda,
The Root of David has conquered, alleluia!
Today is the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua(Lisbon), the great thirteenth century Franciscan. Perhaps as a lay Carmelite I should not be interested in him but I’ve always really liked him, ever since I was only a kid. Anthony (1195_1231) is a great Doctor of the Church. Originally a Canon Regular of St. Augustine, Ferdinand de Bouillon eventually joined the Friars Minor. He is invoked in all sorts of necessities but is especially venerated as a model of true devotion to the Immaculate Virgin Mary. He was one of the earliest advocates of the Three Hail Mary’s devotion.
Yesterday was the Feast of St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi(1566_1607). This great Carmelite mystic lived a very humble life among the sisters of her community. http://www.oksister.com/Saints/st__mary_magdalen_de_pazzi.htm
