Mary and the Saints: October 2006 Archives

Not to our name, O Lord


Thanks to Father Z for reminding me that today is St. Crispin's Day. Stop by Father Z's place if you wish to take in the Agincourt speech in text format.

And here, thanks to some blessed copyright-infringing YouTuber is video of the speech:

And here, reposted from last year, is the Non Nobis, which closes out the Battle of Agincourt.

I'll admit to having no particular affinity for the British, but a strong devotion to Henry V as scribed by Shakespeare. So guess what I'll be watching while Mama-Lu and the kids are away this evening?

Universal Prayer


I know one already exists, but I think we can agree that St. Teresa of Avila speaks for us all:

May You be blessed, Lord, who put up with me so long! Amen.

Possible Miracle for Bl. Damien?


John Allen's new it's-not-a-blog-style "column" (note the "blog" int the URL) at the NCReporter is up and running, and in one of his first daily updates (but it's not a blog, remember), Allen mentions that "A miracle attributed to Blessed Damian of Molokai, the famed Belgian priest who worked with lepers in the Hawaiian Islands in the late 19th century, is under examination. If approved, it would clear the way for canonization. Damien was beatified by John Paul II in 1995."

Info on Blessed Damien of Molokai.
