Many thanks to Mr Vincent McDonald for producing this video of the Pontifical High Mass with Cardinal Burke on the 2nd of September 2017.
In Morning Prayer of the Divine Office for today as provided by Universalis is this beautiful hymn, which each time I pray it brings great consolation.
Alone with none but thee, my God,
I journey on my way.
What need I fear, when thou art near,
O King of night and day?
More safe am I within thy hand,
Than if a host did round me stand.
My destined time is fixed by thee,
And death doth know his hour.
Did warriors strong around me throng,
They could not stay his power;
No walls of stone can man defend
When thou thy messenger dost send.
My life I yield to thy decree,
And bow to thy control
In peaceful calm, for from thine arm
No power can wrest my soul.
Could earthly omens e’er appal
A man that heeds the heavenly call!
The child of God can fear no ill,
His chosen dread no foe;
We leave our fate with thee, and wait
Thy bidding when to go.
‘Tis not from chance our comfort springs,
Thou art our trust, O King of kings.
It is good to see the Faith Movement still bringing young people to Christ. It did the same for me right back in it’s beginnings in the early 1970’s. The fully orthodox synthesis presented is both intellectually satisfying and spiritually nourishing. This synthesis can be found in ‘Catholicism a New Synthesis’ By Fr Edward Holloway STL and other books and pamphlets available from the Faith website or in eBook format Here.

You have got to watch this!
The Catholic Bishops of Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province emphasized the significance of both Marian devotion and the observance of liturgical rubrics.
When I read this, I am proud to have been born in Ibadan.
