KNOCK

By Fr. Dominic Feehan, SHM

On August 21, 1879, at approximately 8 o’clock in the evening, fifteen people from the village of Knock in Coounty Mayo, Ireland, witnessed an apparition of Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist, a Lamb and a cross on an altar at the gable wall of their Parish Church. The witnesses watched the apparition in the pouring rain for two hours, reciting the Rosary. Although they themselves were drenched, not a single drop of rain fell on the gable wall or vision.

purgatorio

By Martha Pezo-Marin

The Oldest Prayer to Our Lady

By Fr. Ángel Mª Rojas, SJ

Edgar Lobel, an expert in papyrology from the University of Oxford, has dedicated his life to the study of papyri found in Egypt. The extremely dry climate in the greater part of Egypt has led to the conservation of a multitude of fragments of very ancient papyri, including texts from millennia ago, in Greek and Coptic. In many cases, the papyri help to confirm the dates of texts that had been conserved through successive copies o translations.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae. Today, discordant voices seem to rise up once again against this prophetic document, whose author refused to give in to the demands of the sexual revolution and the contraception market originated in the United States.

BELIEVE IT!

By Sr. Miriam Loveliand, SHM

MF1 885

By Sr. Estela M. Morales, SHM

It has become even more frequent to go into a school gym and see students in the lotus flower position, or lying on a tatami mat with their eyes closed and with silly smiles on their faces practicing mindfulness.

During the last years, hundreds of manuals concerning this have been published and conferences, retreats, and talks about mindfulness have multiplied, presenting it as a compliment to prayer or as a way of dealing with anxiety or stress.

Unfortunately, this has extended even to the Church and we can find these techniques practiced in retreat houses and even taught as school subjects.
