Two upcoming diocesan events December 11, 2015

Posted by Tantumblogo in Dallas Diocese, Eucharist, family, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Interior Life, North Deanery, Our Lady, Tradition, Virtue.

Event 1 – Public Rosary Rally at Holy Family Church in Grand Prairie on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Takes place at 2 pm.  Info below:


The next one is a bit more dubious to me.  It’s a weekend long Eucharistic conference for teens hosted by the Franciscans of the Renewal. The flyer stresses a lot of “energetic” music that will purportedly appeal to teens.  That probably means the devil’s own music, rock n’ roll.  I have several concerns over this, at least from the standpoint of a traditional Catholic family.  While Eucharistic retreats are awesome, I am leery to send my kids into an milieu where most other kids will be from public or, worse, Catholic schools.  I’m also concerned at the retreat’s length – 4 hours Friday, 14 on Saturday, and 4 on Sunday.

Having said that……..I have looked over the general Ablaze program at St. Monica, and reviewed some of their discussion materials, and they appear pretty solid.  Definitely quite a bit above average for standard diocesan fair.  I can’t say there aren’t any problems, but I’ve definitely seen much worse, in this diocese and elsewhere.  The music portion of the program seems fairly limited.  There are Masses (Novus Ordo) Friday and Sunday, along with Adoration, Benediction, crowing of Mary, and similar.  There is time slotted for “testimonials,”………that’s a bit prot for me.


Anyway, I don’t do much local news anymore, but you can check it out for yourself.  The retreat’s website is here.

Take note!

Why don’t you report more local news?

Because I’m isolated, I almost never get out to regular parishes and I’ve lost contact with some insider resources I had. So I’m just not aware.

Got it. Thanks.

This is completely off topic, but perhaps you might blog about the lawsuit that has been filed by parishioners in NY against the archdiocese!, among others, including Dolan.. It’s not local, but if more parishoners did this…it might gives others hope.


It’s hit the big time, Drudge, waiting for pewsitter to pick it up.

Depravity, depravity, depravity

Michael Voris has a Vortex today re: importing megachurch tactics into the Church and why it’s a bad idea. Kind of ties in- but glad their materials are not too bad.

Had to go to my local parish for Immaculate Conception- the early evening service. It was a “children’s Mass”- nothing horribly objectionable, but really brought home how much the N.O. by its very nature, lends itself to innovation.

I think the Rosary Rally is at Holy Family in Irving, close to Esters and Highway 183. I heard an advertisement on the radio.
