Random Catholic Trivia

Can anyone name the one country that does not have a Latin Rite diocese? Every nation on Earth has a Catholic diocese or eparchy, but this nation does not have a Latin rite diocese.

50 Days After

Today is Pentecost, the namesake of this blog (50 days after Easter). Along with all other Christians, I rejoice at the birthday of the Church and the descent of the Holy Spirit.
Veni Sancte Spiritus!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

I saw this pic on a blog called Orthodoxie... Southern, Orthodox, Convert, Etc. When I saw it, I thought of that footprints story (only one set of footprints when Christ carried you). Its in Chapel of St Lazarus, so it might be St Lazarus, but it almost looks like it might be Christ as the Good Samaritan carrying the victim to the inn.

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Psalm 128:3
Thanks to Kkollitz for pointing out this Psalm in the last post

Saint Quiz IX

Tomorrow is Mother's Day.With that in mind I decided that this Saint Quiz should have an appropriate theme. Of course, I haven't written in this blog for nearly a year so the answer may not come up for a while.

Mom was right

I was listening to the local Air1 station on the way into work this morning and there was a discussion that caught my attention. The hosts were asking listeners to complete the sentence, "My mom was right about _______." The first thing that came to me and the answer I am sticking with is "My mom was right about GOD." God is great and loving and my mother always emphasized that. I remember once she told me that God would grant anything if I prayed for it, except for him to kill someone. I don't remember why that last part came up, but I specifically remember it. I am extremely grateful that she brought me up to love and to worship God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God bless her. Mary, mother of God, pray for her.
