Just Another Fool of the Immaculata!


“Mantle of Mary” Etsy Shop and Modesty Tips

Are you wearing your scapular? I have observed an interesting trend among my Catholic friends, though good and holy, who did not observe the Vatican dress-code at their own weddings. One of them was so bold as to say, before she walked down the aisle, that she knew she was breaking the rules. These are not luke-warm, cafeteria Catholics either, mind you. For instance, bare arms, dress from behind showing their back, even some with spaghettis straps and low-cut fronts. The most interesting part- every one of these friends (this is no hyperbole either) pray Mary’s rosary, but fail to wear Her scapular. Fascinating, no? The Church very much has a strict dress code, it has nothing to do with “purity of intention” while wearing something. Do you really think men are considering your intentions as they are forced to try and keep custody of the eyes while immodesty is before them? If this were the case, it would be easy to enter Saint Peter’s Basilica, but what occurs before admittance?

Vatican security makes sure you are following the dress code before entering Saint Peter’s; similar to when you want to go on a roller-coaster as a child, and you have to be a certain height to enjoy the ride. If you have bare arms or your skirt is above the knees, no matter how long you have been waiting in-line, you will be turned away. Padre Pio used to kick women out of his confessional for this reason, and men for wearing short sleeve shirts. How are you dressing for Mass on a daily basis? Why should the guidelines be observed only in the Vatican but not in front of every Church tabernacle, Mass or wedding for that matter? I also noticed something else, a very good friend of mine who has been like a brother to me, just entered into the sacrament of matrimony with none other than the Traditional Latin Mass. His bride was stunning; and you know what else? His bride was modest. Through these different thoughts and reflections, I noticed that modesty and the Traditional Latin Mass are tied directly to the scapular. Those who attend the latter and observe the former, are typically found praying the rosary AND wearing the scapular. I cannot express enough how important is it to do both. I have said this before, but it is worth repeating, words of a friend to myself some years ago:

How many people claim to love Mary, but fail to wear Her scapular?

Congratulations to Alex and Teresa Roerty!

Before I introduce my favorite Etsy shop to you, I want to share some “food for thought” found in our Catechism and proper dress code for daily and Sunday Mass. If you think this is me being uncharitable, how do you think Our Poor Lord feels? Are you showing Him the proper respect owed to a King? On the contrary, it is actually an act of “un-charity” (if that is a word) toward Him. The Mass IS for Christ!

Here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church has to say about dressing properly for Mass:

To prepare for worthy reception of this sacrament, the faithful should observe the fast required in their Church. Bodily demeanour (gestures, clothing) ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our guest – CCC 1387

Clement of Alexandria c. 195 AD says:  Let a woman wear a plain and becoming dress, but softer than what is suitable for a man. Yet, it should not be immodest or entirely steeped in luxury. And let the garments be suited to age, person, figure, nature, and pursuits.”

Do Not Wear The Following:

  • Any dress or skirt that does not completely cover the knees when sitting or standing
  • Skimpy shorts, in fact, shorts of any kind
  • Beachwear
  • Dresses and tops that are tight-fitting, provocative, low-cut, bare midriff or sleeveless
  • Dresses or tops with spaghetti straps, with plunging necklines, that expose the bare shoulders or bare-back,  or that are see-through
  • Dresses or skirts with high slits
  • Flashy clothing
  • Jeans
  • Leggings
  • T-shirts
  • Any outfits with large logos or distracting messages
  • Flip flops, sneakers or beach sandals

Do wear:

  • Modest tops, dresses or skirts. 
  • Any pants should be avoided for traditional Catholic ladies; and if YOU MUST, wear dress pants, NOT jeans.
  • Chapel veils – covering of the hair for women in the presence of the Eucharist is done out of respect for Our Lord. 

According to Catholic Christian tradition (found in 1st Corinthians 11) the head covering requirement falls equally upon both men and women. According to the custom, men are to take their hats off during religious ceremonies, while women are to put a covering on. This is for two reasons. The first is just like the manner of dress described above — which is to excuse one’s self. Saint Paul points out to us that a woman’s glory is the beauty of mankind, and that is manifested in her hair. Women go to great lengths to make their hair beautiful, regardless of the style or trend, and that’s a good thing. But during the mass, the focus is to always be on the Eucharist, and as a sign of modesty and respect, the woman excuses her beautiful hair (by covering it) to call more attention to the greater beauty of God’s presence in the Eucharist.

This post is in honor of Our Lady’s First Saturday devotion. Since the scapular promise is connected to this devotion, I think it only fitting that I share it today. Having hand-sewn our own scapulars, in Carmel, they pale in comparison to the ones I am about to show you. The owner, of MantleOfMary Etsy Shop, is a personal friend of mine and I cannot recommend these scapulars enough. If you do not believe me, see for yourself!

This is just the first, out of four pages worth, of custom scapulars. The sewing is the most superb I have yet to see. From the durability of the straps to the great attention to detail; the quality is simply excellent. Nothing is wanting! If you do not have a scapular or are in need of a new one, this shop is the perfect way to start.

Under vissa omständigheter som utlöser dem, stänker dessa minnen, dessa känslor, dagligen och överväldigar oss som plötsliga starka känslor som vi inte kan innehålla och tvinga oss att bete oss irrationellt. Ibland kan de också orsaka oss vissa fysiska tecken och till och med sjukdomar. I sådana fall talar vi om psykosomatiska sjukdomar. Sömnlöshet, huvudvärk, buksmärtor och andra delar av kroppen, allergier, andningsproblem och olika inflammationer, och till och med cancer, kan vara konsekvenserna av vissa psykologiska traumor från barndomen. Medicin, psykologi och psykiatri hjälper redan till stor del till att förstå dessa problem och är mycket bra på att diagnostisera. Men ibland mer ibland kan de lindra och behandla dessa svårigheter. I andliga övningar för inre helande accepterar vi vården och motsätter oss dem inte. Men vi försöker uppgradera dem och komplettera dem med andliga medel. Vi ber Jesus att med sin kärlek hela våra sårade hjärtan, våra inre sår, smärtsamma minnen från vårt förflutna. Hans helande kärlek kan först upplevas i en grundlig bekännelse och i en djupgående gemenskap av eukaristin. När vi förlåter andra befriar vi oss själva först och helar oss själva. Genom tal, i bönatmosfären, i tillbedjan inför den Allraheligaste, i begrundan i tystnad över Guds ord, genom att skriva en personlig berättelse, försöker vi upptäcka rötterna till våra emotionella, fysiska och sociala problem. Dessa rötter förs sedan till Jesus i olika personliga och gemensamma böner, i en ödmjuk begäran om att röra vid och läka dem. Vi ber honom också att hjälpa oss att förbättra vårt sätt att tänka och leva och att behålla vårt helande. Han leder p. Mia Kekić DJ. Tack för att du registrerade dig. Ansökan skickades in!

Titus Brandsma: časnikar, mučenec, svetnik 20. stoletja Mojca Masterl Štefanič Za vas piše: Mojca Masterl Štefanič Sv. Titus Brandsma: časnikar, mučenec, svetnik 20. stoletja Sv. Titus Brandsma. FOTO: Wikimedia Papež Frančišek je med včerajšnjim slovesnim bogoslužjem na Trgu sv. Petra v Vatikanu razglasil deset novih svetnikov. Med njimi je tudi Titus Brandsma, nizozemski duhovnik iz reda karmeličanov, pa tudi časnikar, mistik in mučenec, primeren zavetnik spletnih časnikarjev in blogerjev. 7 stvari, ki jih je dobro vedeti o novem svetniku: 1. Čudež na njegovo priprošnjo vključuje sobrata karmeličana. Ko je p. Michael Driscoll, karmeličan iz ameriške zvezne države Florida, leta 2004 prejel diagnozo melanoma 4. stopnje, je vedel, na koga se bo obrnil: začel je moliti za priprošnjo bl. Titusa Brandsme, mučenca iz nacističnega koncentracijskega taborišča Dachau. Duhovniški kolega je p. Michaelu podaril relikvijo drugega reda, košček črne tkanine iz Brandsminega talarja, ki si jo je p. Michael vsak dan pritisnil na čelo, ko je molil za ozdravljenje. Prestal je že številne operacije, da bi mu z obraza odstranili manjša rakava znamenja, tokrat pa je bil rak že zelo razširjen. Kirurgi so mu odstranili velik melanom z glave in vratu, pa tudi 84 bezgavk in slinavko. Po mnenju zdravnikov je imel zelo malo možnosti za okrevanje. In vendar je okreval. Preiskovalna komisija v škofiji Palm Beach je več kot leto dni analizirala njegovo ozdravljenje, pogovarjala se je z zdravniki p. Michaela in drugimi medicinskimi izvedenci ter 12 patrovimi župljani in dvema duhovnikoma. 25. maja 2021 je senat odločil, da je duhovnikovo ozdravljenje res čudežno, in svoje poročilo so poslali v končno preiskavo vatikanski Kongregaciji za zadeve svetnikov. 9. novembra je ta kongregacija potrdila kanonizacijo in svojo odločitev posredovala papežu Frančišku. Dva tedna pozneje, 25. novembra, je papež pooblastil kardinala Marcella Semerara, prefekta omenjene kongregacije, naj izda odlok, s katerim je bil čudež potrjen – to je bil še zadnji korak na poti k kanonizaciji. 2. Kot časnikar je bil Titus Brandsma neustrašen. Titus Brandsma je spregovoril vsakokrat, ko se je zdelo, da se vsi drugi tiho obračajo stran. Pripravljen se je bil sam zoperstaviti vladi, ki se je upirala volji ljudi. Ko je v 30. in 40. letih prejšnjega stoletja živel in delal na Nizozemskem, družbena omrežja še niso bila razvita. Kar je papež Janez Pavel II. imenoval »digitalna celina« – ta nov način komuniciranja prek meja –, je bila tedaj stvar domišljije. Kljub temu je Titus Brandsma, duhovnik karmeličanskega reda in časnikar, uspel na široko komunicirati z nizozemskimi verniki. Delal je kot urednik svojega krajevnega časnika in kot cerkveni svetovalec katoliških časnikarjev pri približno 30 nizozemskih časnikih. Kip novega svetnika. FOTO: Vatican Media 3. Poleg časnikarskega dela je bil tudi akademik. P. Brandsma je predaval na več univerzah po Nizozemski, v nizozemščino je iz španščine prevedel delo sv. Terezije Avilske. Bil je eden od ustanoviteljev Katoliške univerze v Nijmegnu (danes univerza Radboud), kjer je predaval filozofijo in zgodovino misticizma, pozneje pa je bil njen rektor. Bil je priljubljen zaradi svojega velikodušnega duha in znan po svoji nenehni dostopnosti vsem, ki so iskali njegov nasvet. 4. P. Brandsma je avtor množično razširjenega pastoralnega pisma nizozemskih katoliških škofov, v katerem so obsodili antisemitizem, brali pa so ga v župnijah po vsej državi. V Nemčiji so se skupaj z deportacijo prvih Judov iz Nizozemske pojavljala nizkotna čustva. Nizozemski škofje so v pismu predstavili ostro nasprotje med katolištvom in nacizmom ter pokazali, da sta obe ideologiji povsem nezdružljivi. V Hitlerjevi Nemčiji odziv nacistov na pastoralno pismo ni bil takšen, kot so upali nizozemski škofje: več kot 3.000 judovskih spreobrnjencev v katoliško vero je bilo deportiranih iz Nizozemske. 5. P. Brandsma je pisal in govoril proti nacističnim protijudovskim zakonom o zakonski zvezi in propagandi. Leta 1942 so p. Brandsmo aretirali, potem ko je poskušal prepričati nizozemske katoliške časnike, naj ne tiskajo nacistične propagande (kar je zahteval nacistični okupator). Nemci so mu ponudili možnost, naj temu ne nasprotuje in bi lahko mirno živel v svojem samostanu, vendar je njihov predlog odločno zavrnil. FOTO: Vatican Media 6. P. Brandsma je umrl kot mučenec. P. Titus Brandsma je bil februarja 1942 premeščen v koncentracijsko taborišče Dachau. Julija istega leta je bil usmrčen s smrtonosno injekcijo. Medicinski sestri, ki mu je dala injekcijo, je odpustil in ji podaril rožni venec. Čeprav takrat ni bila verna, je pozneje postala katoličanka. 7. Njegov god obhajamo v mesecu juliju. Titusa Brandsmo je papež Janez Pavel II. za blaženega razglasil leta 1985, v karmeličanskem redu pa njegov god obhajajo 27. julija. Ob njegovi beatifikaciji je poljski papež dejal, da je »na sovraštvo odgovoril z ljubeznijo«. ”Maria, titta på oss!”” Det står till dig: ”Maria, titta på oss!”” ”Det blommar redan för dig, det luktar för dig, en bukett små blommor, Mary!” Vi har gått in i maj månad, som är tillägnad vår himmelska Moder Maria. Den här månaden läser vi marhas, sjunger Marjis dikter och vänder oss till Maria med särskild uppmärksamhet. Den första marman var nattvarden 1851 ”Marias säregenhet i maj månad är tillbaka till 1500-talet, och regelbunden fromhet utvecklades först på 1700-talet. Den första spaten var nattvarden i Ljubljana 1851 vid seminariets seminarium. Hängivenheten spred sig snart till andra institutioner och församlingar, bland annat utanför Ljubljana, och tog snabbt en stark vändning för folket. Andakten, som de började namnge efter majonnäsblommorna, partytältet, utfördes snart utanför kyrkan – i byn, i kapellen och i skyltarna”, skrev Niko Kurent i boken Slovenernas festliga år. Šmarnice är fortfarande en av de mest populära folkfromheterna i Slovenien. FOTO: Tatjana Splichal Under de kommande dagarna kan vi också vända oss till Maria genom att be nästa bön, skriven av den pensionerade påven Benedictus XVI. Bönen publicerades ursprungligen i Youcat Prayer Book för ungdomar. Maria, du sa ditt ja, du lyssnade på Jesus, och du känner ljudet av hans röst och hjärtat av hans hjärta. Du, stjärnan danica, berätta om honom och berätta för oss hur du följde honom på trons väg. Maria, som bodde med Jesus i Nasaret, präglar sina känslor i våra liv: hans öppenhet, hans tystnad, att lyssna till Guds ord och göra det till ett verkligt fritt val. Maria, berätta om Jesus, att hon från våra ögon kommer att återspegla friskheten i vår tro och kommer att förtöja hjärtan hos alla som möter oss – som du gjorde med ditt besök hos Elizabeth, som vid en hög ålder gladde sig med dig gåvan av ett nytt liv. Maria, jungfru magnificata, hjälp oss att föra glädje till världen, och som i Kana, uppmuntra alla unga människor som ger sig till sina bröders bästa att bara göra vad Jesus säger åt dem att göra. Maria, se på de unga människorna för att bli kyrkans bördiga jord. Han ber att Jesus, som dog och uppstod, ska återfödas i oss och förvandla oss till en natt full av ljus som är dränkt av honom. Maria, Guds Moder, din himmelska port, hjälp oss att rikta blicken uppåt. Vi vill se på Jesus. Vi vill prata med honom. Vi vill förkunna hans kärlek till alla.

Saint Verena Bütler (1848-1924) a Swiss Roman Catholic professed religious and the foundress of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Mary, Help of Christians, – from a bio: Mary Bernard (Verena Bütler) was born in Auw, in the Canton of Argovia, in Switzerland, on the 28th of May 1848 and was baptised on the same day. She was the fourth child of Henry and Catherine Bütler, modest but exemplary country people, who educated the eight children born of their marriage in the love of God and of neighbour. Gifted with excellent health, Verena grew up happy, intelligent, generous and a lover of nature. She began to attend school at seven years of age. The fervour and commitment with which she made her First Communion, on the 16th of April 1860, remained constant in her for the rest of her life. Devotion to the Eucharist would, in fact, form the foundation of her spirituality. Having completed her elementary studies at the age of 14, Verena dedicated herself to farm work and experienced affection for a worthy young man with whom she fell in love. On feeling the call of God, she broke off the engagement in order to turn completely to the Lord. During this period in her life she was granted the grace of enjoying the presence of God, feeling Him very close. She herself said: ”To explain this state of soul to someone who has never experienced anything similar is extremely difficult, if not impossible”.

They do not inhabit separate cities of their own, or speak a strange dialect, or follow some outlandish way of life. Their teaching is not based upon reveries inspired by the curiosity of men. Unlike some other people, they champion no purely human doctrine. With regard to dress, food and manner of life in general, they follow the customs of whatever city they happen to be living in, whether it is Greek or foreign… Christians love all men, but all men persecute them. Condemned because they are not understood, they are put to death, but raised to life again. They live in poverty, but enrich many; they are totally destitute, but possess an abundance of everything. They suffer dishonor, but that is their glory. They are defamed, but vindicated. A blessing is their answer to abuse, deference their response to insult. For the good they do they receive the punishment of malefactors, but even then they rejoice, as though receiving the gift of life. They are attacked by the Jews as aliens, they are persecuted by the Greeks, yet no one can explain the reason for this hatred… Christians love those who hate them just as the soul loves the body and all its members despite the body’s hatred. It is by the soul, enclosed within the body, that the body is held together, and similarly, it is by the Christians, detained in the world as in a prison, that the world is held together. The soul, though immortal, has a mortal dwelling place; and Christians also live for a time amidst perishable things, while awaiting the freedom from change and decay that will be theirs in heaven. As the soul benefits from the deprivation of food and drink, so Christians flourish under persecution. Such is the Christian’s lofty and divinely appointed function, from which he is not permitted to excuse himself. Amen Lijepo je što postojiš 4 m · Kada je metak pogodio moje srce, nisam umro.
