“The Church, no doubt, has always kept, and wishes still to maintain everywhere, the language of her Liturgy; and, before the sad and violent changes of the sixteenth century, this eloquent and effective symbol of unity of faith and communion of the faithful was, as you know, cherished in England not less than elsewhere. But this has never been regarded by the Holy See as incompatible with the use of popular hymns in the language of each country. Such hymns, moreover, are useful to familiarize the people with the great truths of faith, and to keep alive their devotion.”
— LEO XIII, POPE (8 June 1898)

Sacraments and family

Brandt Family 2015 UR FAMILY BIBLE HAS SEEN A few updates lately with three sons being confirmed, then another son making his first Holy Communion a week later. It is amazing to reflect on how time has flown! It seems not so long ago we brought each one to be baptized.

It is amazing how a family can work together to grow new people. It is amazing that something so fundamental can be controversial, but then again, that’s another reason we know that marriage and the family is important.

CanaVox is a refreshing oasis providing a plan of readings for a discussion group. I don’t know if I’ll get to try out the nineteen sessions properly, but reading pieces here and there has been rewarding and reassuring. Supporting families is worthwhile.
