Good ol’ violin works

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 8:03 pm

While I know practically nothing about the violinist Mischa Elman, I like the free files of his works from Victrola records of many years ago (the 1910s) on this web page.  The Ave Maria is quite well done.

Happy Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 8:50 am

It’s quite a day for us Marians.  It also happens to be Philipino day here at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy.  I wonder how the fundraising for the Arch of Triumph is going?

Waiting in line

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 9:56 pm

One of our seminarians who was in DC when the body of former president Reagan was at the Capital Rotunda went to view the casket.  He got in line at 10:30 p.m.  Guess when he actually got into the Rotunda?  Shortly before 6 a.m.  He had a number of conversations during the wait, as you might imagine.  Asked if he would ever do such a thing again, he said yes.  He waited 6 1/2 hours!

Year of the Eucharist

The Holy Father has declared a “Year of the Eucharist” for October 2004 to October 2005.  It’s time to start praying for its success in fostering Eucharistic devotion.

A prayer from the Diary of St. Faustina

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 1:26 pm

God of great mercy, who deigned to send us Your only-begotten Son as the greatest proof of Your fathomless love and mercy, You do not reject sinners; but in Your boundless mercy You have opened for them also Your treasures, treasures from which they can draw abundantly, not only justification, but also all the sanctity that a soul can attain. Father of great mercy, I desire that all hearts turn with confidence to Your infinite mercy. No one will be justified before You if he is not accompanied by Your unfathomable mercy. When You reveal the mystery of Your mercy to us, there will not be enough of eternity to properly thank You for it. (1122)

Just attended a baptism today here in Raleigh, NC.  Things are finally settling down from the party.  I was just down in Tallahassee, Florida, visiting friends there.  It’s been a busy few days.
