Teresita Quevedo’s Code of Amiability

Re-Posted from “veneremurcernui.wp.com”
A wonderful suggestion for this upcoming
Lenten Season…I hope you agree. 🙂

I have been reading the biography of Teresita Quevedo (Sister Maria Theresa of Jesus O. Carm) for some time. I highly recommend it.  Mary was truly her life.  She gave such great evidence of heroic virtue during such a short life.  She is emblematic of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, though she did not develop such an exalted, simple form of piety that has been adopted by millions (or, at least, they have tried to adopt it).

One thing Venerable Teresita Quevedo did develop, however, was her Code of Amiability.  Even from a young age, 0276family members and friends were amazed by Teresita’s kindness, generosity, and consideration of others.  These characteristics and others informed her general code of amiability, something which I believe, if adopted by many souls, could lead to a religious/spiritual revival, even restoration.  Given that we have now started Septuagesima and thus our preparations for Lent…

Franciscan Ecumania Gathering Steam as 500th Anniversary of Protestant Revolt Approaches

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

Two recent posts by Rorate highlight the growing impetus in the pontificate of Francis to give tremendous credence to protestant claims by participating in “celebrations” marking the 500th anniversary of the (to date) permanent rending of the union of Christendom and the launching point for the unleashing of forces that have all but totally destroyed Western Civilization.  That is to say, events are to be given official approbation, if not approval, and the direct participation of the highest levels of the Church (to the scandal of millions), which should rightly be lamented and deplored.

Nevertheless, the new god of ecumenism must be worshiped, and worshiped it shall be, apparently for an interminable year-plus.

First up, Pope Francis will participate in a common worship service with Lutheran heretics in Sweden on All Hallow’s Eve this year (more on the date below):

Long Ago Prophets Knew

A perfectly beautiful song originally posted by Brother Burrito on

Catholicism Pure & Simple

We sang this at Mass today. Such a simple Christmas hymn, but so stirring.

Long ago, prophets knew
Christ would come, born a Jew,
come to make all things new;
bear his people’s burden,
freely love and pardon.

Ring, bells, ring, ring, ring!
Sing, choirs, sing, sing, sing!
When he comes,
when he comes,
who will make him welcome?

God in time, God in man,
this is God’s timeless plan:
He will come, as a man,
born himself of woman,
God divinely human: Refrain

Mary hail! Though afraid,
she believed, she obeyed.
In her womb, God is laid:
till the time expected,
nurtured and protected, Refrain

Journey ends! Where afar
Bethlehem shines, like a star,
stable door stands ajar.
unborn Son of Mary,
Savior, do not tarry!

Ring, bells, ring, ring, ring!
Sing, choirs, sing, sing, sing!
Jesus comes!
Jesus comes!
We will make him welcome!

From here.
