Pope Benedict XVI shocks Catholic faithful, announces resignation

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 11, 2013

Peace be with you, Papa, and bless your for your honesty by acknowledging that “…both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.”

May your successor be more than four times as strong as you, ten times as wise, a hundredfold more personable than John Paul II.

Pope blesses special lambs on Feast of St. Agnes

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, January 21, 2011

I am humbled to be adopted into the family of God, and equally humbled to be a part of this historical family of faith and tradition.

Each family has traditions, and none are without significance or meaning. Just as the Almighty on several occasions told various Israelites to ‘stack a pile of rocks at this location to remind your children of the wonderful things God has done for you’ (my paraphrase) – in other words, He instructed them to start a tradition – each beautiful thing, every ceremony, celebration, and word has significance, and meaning that is designed to remind us of His goodness and attributes. Incense? Prayers of the Saints! Red color? The precious Blood.

Read on to learn about one of the special traditions!
