Interesting Catholic Reads for February 10, 2011

Tomorrow is the Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes. This photo was taken following the 7:00pm Latin Novus Ordo Mass at Assumption Grotto on February 11, 2008, which was the 150th anniversary.  The priests, deacon and transitional deacon all knelt before the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes and led the Holy Rosary.

I am unaware if there will be a special Mass at 7:00pm Friday for Our Lady of Lourdes with all available priests.  Typically, the Friday evening Mass is in the extraordinary form (1962 Missal) and the Rosary follows all weekday Masses.  I plan on going in the morning.

I've been unable to post on a daily basis.  I will often "Tweet" things I want to pass along to readers (watch the feed in my sidebar).  Since someone else has already covered the news or topic, it's a matter of drawing it to your attention.

A few blogposts and news items...
Louis Belanger blogged on the Medjugorje commission, Pope Benedict, and the light of truth in his post: Medjugorje: De veritate nunquam satis (concerning truth one can never say enough).  Louis also placed this thought into the Vatican Information Service blogpost: Catholic Universities: Lead Students to Light of the World.

On a similar topic, Donal Foley, author of Understanding Medjugorje, takes a close look at the critique recently offered by Denis Nolan on the 2006 book (link to Nolan's article is embedded in Foley's response).

Fr. Angelo over at MaryVictrix, offers a thought provoking post enttitled, Alternate States of Unreality, which does a deep dive into the Occult, Magic & Mysticism, Harry Potter, and Theology of the Body.

Father Z fields a question: Is it a sin not to pray every day?

I heard about this on Catholic radio, but Tom Peters, the American Papist blogs on it  here: Chicago Catholic Hospital offers to help women halt abortions.  There are women who begin the process and then change their minds. 

A new website has been offered for the cause of Pope John Paul II:
LifeSiteNews is reporting that a seventh Planned Parenthood clinic has been caught in a sex-trafficking snare being laid out by  In the meanwhile, Lila Rose who heads that up, blogs on the Top Six Planned Parenthood Deceptions.

Pope Benedict XVI says every Catholic is called to encourage vocations (CNA/EWTN News)

Catholic blogger Chelsea Zimmerman, herself paralyzed, has written a very good piece entitled: Refusing to Suffer Is Refusing to Live.  I recommend checking in on her blog, Reflections of a Paralytic
