August 25 News and Blogpost Roundup

I have been incredibly short on time of late and my house is now showing it. I have much work to catch up on, but would like to point you to some news, and to some blogposts worth reading. Hopefully, this will keep my readers busy for a time. I have more photos to bring you, and more photo videos to make. However, routine housework, bill-paying and other tasks must take place first.

ST. MONICA AND ST. AUGUSTINE

August 27, and 28th bring us the feast days of St. Monica and St. Augustine respectively.

Feast days of St. Monica and St. AugustineOn Monday and Tuesday of this week, August 27 and 28, we give thanks to God and Holy Mother Church, for our holy patrons, Sts. Monica and Augustine.

GROTTO VIDEO MOVED TO GODTUBE

First, I just want to re-iterate, that the moving video slideshow on the Anointing of the Sick and powerful Benediction scene also included, has been moved to GodTube - a "morally correct" version of YouTube. Author Amy Welborn (De-Coding Da Vinci), at her new blogsite, was kind enough to give the video some publicity and I thank her for that.

MOUNT CARMEL CATHOLIC BLOGGERS

Something noteworthy is that I accepted an invitation recently to participate in a wonderful blog for which there are many contributors called the Mount Carmel Catholic Bloggers. I've been too swamped to add anything just yet. Please visit this blog on a regular basis to read the many fine spiritual articles available by ordinary Catholics.
