Canons Regular of St. John Cantius

Here is a new video about my friends, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius. This video gives a background to their community and also a great resources for those men interested in a great community. The charism of their community is restoration of the sacred.

Here is a link to their website.

 

“And a great sign appeared in the sky…” Rev. 12:1

Here are some links related to “The Great American Eclipse.” Providing the links does not mean I endorse them. I think it’s all interesting. We are living in very prophetic times. The world and the Church are going through great difficulties. And much of it can only be solved through a direct intervention from on high. What we need to do is pray. Running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off does no good for the chicken and no good for everyone else. Pray, fast, repent, go to confession frequently, and Mass as often as possible. Live in a state of grace, because non of us know the “day or the hour when the Son of man will return.” You could be waiting for some divine intervention and get hit by a car. So don’t wait. Act now. Live completely for Christ now!

Rev.12

[1]

And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;

[2] she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery.
[3] And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads.
[4] His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth;
[5] she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,
[6] and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
[7]

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,

[8] but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
[9] And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world — he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
[10] And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
[11] And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
[12] Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”
[13]

And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had borne the male child.

[14] But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
[15] The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood.
[16] But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon had poured from his mouth.
[17] Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.
