Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

Month of the Holy Rosary

Yesterday afternoon, the kids and I watched a movie about the miracle at Fatima.  It was a children's video and was actually a VHS tape.  Anyway, it depicted the three little children who were involved in the miracle at Fatima and the mysteries that were revealed.  Lucia dos Santos, and her two cousins, Francisco and Jacinta, were out tending the sheep one day, when Our Lady visited them.  She told them to come back the 13th day of every month for 6 months.  They did it, but not without punishment from those who didn't believe them.

It was a great video to watch with the kids.  They were able to learn about why we should pray the Rosary every day.  I noticed a difference in my two younger children who usually get distracted and don't seem to "care" to say it.  But I think that after watching the video, they had a reason. 

The month of October is when the Sun Danced.  October is the Month of the Holy Rosary.  Say your Rosary every day.  Sacrifice for the conversion of sinners and the consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart.
