Chartres pilgrimage 2014



Applications are now invited from pilgrims to join the Chartres pilgrimage 2014. This pilgrimage is an annual event in France commencing at Notre Dame, Paris on 6th to 10th June 2014. Details for applicants can be found at http://www.lmschairman.org/2014/01/chartres-pilgrimage-2014-lms-sponsored.html

There are 15 sponsored places available by the LMS (a reduction of £100), but you need to register quickly as places are going fast.

Sponsorship for Roman Forum’s Annual Symposium

The LMS is offering sponsorship for two young people (18-35) to attend the Roman Forum’s annual symposium at Lake Gardone in northern Italy this summer. Originally the brainchild of the late Dietrich von Hildebrand and in recent years organised by Dr John Rao (who spoke at our last One-Day Conference), this eleven-day event has an impressive line-up of international speakers that would be of great interest to Catholics sympathetic to the Traditional Mass. Full details of the event can be seen on the LMS website here:
 
 
The headline cost of the event is Euro 2100. The LMS is offering two bursaries of £500 each towards this cost. However, from our talks with the event organisers, we understand that they would be prepared to bring the price for our two sponsored places down further (they haven’t specified a figure yet).

Happy Christmas!

 
 
 
 
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day,
A breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall down before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wise man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him? Give my heart... give my heart.

YCA Weekend Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary


A Solemn Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
                                                             
Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.

Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.
O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.

We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.
Amen.
--Venerable Pope Pius XII
