Belief in the Eucharist is a treasure we must seek by submissiveness, preserve by piety, and defend at any cost. Not to believe in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest of misfortunes.

Update on "The Francesco Sessions"

Father brought a jam with him he got while on the plane ride over. It's got a hook based off Psalm 36.

"We feast on the rich food of your house; from your delightful stream you give us drink.
For with you is the fountain of life, and in your light we see light.

It's like Am / G / F / E7...with a cool interlude section as well as a funky breakdown.
It ends with a double time samba...Dm / Am.

The vocals r hot. Father sings so well in unison and harmony with himself it's scary!
If u click on the picture above u can c all the vocal tracks...that's alot of air.

But as many of u know, 4 Father that's nothing!!! Pray 4 us 2day...

Pope Benedict XVI's general prayer intention for October is: "That the Synod of Bishops may help the pastors and theologians, the catechists and promoters who are engaged in the service of the Word of God to courageously transmit the truth of faith in communion with the entire Church."
His mission intention is: "That in this month dedicated to the missions, through the promotional activities of the Pontifical Missionary Works and other organisms, every Christian community may feel the need to participate in the Church's universal mission with prayer, sacrifice and concrete help."
