"The Sacrifice is celebrated with many solemn rites, none of which should be deemed useless or superfluous. On the contrary, all of them tend to display the majesty of this august sacrifice, and to excite the faithful, when beholding these saving mysteries, to contemplate the divine things which lie concealed in the Eucharistic Sacrifice."
— Catechism of the Council of Trent (1566)
Corpus Christi Watershed is five years old today!!!

Corpus Christi Watershed is five years old today.

Sometime in 2009, I learned that the State of Texas officially chose to recognize Corpus Christi Watershed as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation on October 19th, 2006: the Feast of Sts. Isaac Jogues, John de Brébeuf, & companions, martyrs.

This date was not chosen by us. I am not kidding.

This is . . . a truly amazing thing, when one considers all the works and websites and scores we had already dedicated to Sts. Isaac Jogues, John de Brébeuf, René Goupil, Jean de Lalande, Charles Garnier, Antoine Daniel, Gabriel Lalemant, and Noël Chabanel. (Read more)

The Gospel Acclamation for today is: “Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.” With God’s help, we hope to continue doing just that!
