Pope adds name of St. Joseph to Eucharistic prayers

June 19, 2013 8:12 PM

The Decree of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments was made public on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. The decree was promulgated on May 1, 2013, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. The Decree mandates the insertion of the name of St. Joseph in the Prayer offered by every Catholic priest in the world when they offer Eucharistic Prayers II, III, and IV during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. St. Joseph is already included in Eucharistic Prayer I. So, why does this decree matter? What does it mean? Read the link to find out more:

Hymn to Kateri Tekakwitha

October 13, 2012 10:44 AM

It's quite possible that young Kateri Tekakwitha sang this song each Christmas time. With the tune based on a traditional French folk song and words written by a Jesuit missionary. How fitting then to use this melody to recognize our patroness and celebrate her canonization day.

Video can also be found on YouTube.
