A couple of great videos for you July 6, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Art and Architecture, awesomeness, Basics, catachesis, Domestic Church, Father Rodriguez, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, history, Holy suffering, Interior Life, manhood, Sacraments, sanctity, Tradition, true leadership, Virtue.
JMJHFProductions continues to post very helpful catechetical material from Fr. Michael Rodriguez, a good priest who continues to be sadly persecuted for his adherence to the constant belief and practice of the Faith. I posted a few weeks ago a video from Fr. Rodriguez on how to pray the Holy Rosary. Intended for children, I found a great deal of benefit in that presentation. Now, Fr. Rodriguez has given a class to the same audience on making a good Confession. While acknowledging that some of the material is very basic, given the deplorable state of catechesis in the Church today (much of the present audience excepted, of course), perhaps this video is all the more helpful for its simplicity.
So many Catholics today, though they may be rich in years, have a childish understanding of the Faith, if they have one at all. Even the most poorly formed adult can easily understand the nature of Confession and the importance of making a good one from this video.
I think even well-formed adults will, however, find much of benefit here:
To continue to support this kind of very solid caechesis, donations can be sent to:
St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation of Texas
5628 Rosa Ave.

Phone # (915) 500-3025
If you want to support the family run lay apostolate that makes these great videos, please specify the donation is for JMJHF Productions.
Now for something completely different, a blast from the Catholic past, a short video giving a brief and loving biography of Venerable Pope Pius XII. There is much Catholic greatness to be gleaned below; it is almost impossible to believe that these scenes of piety, reverence, and devotion existed within living memory of today:
Contrast the celebration of the Holy Year 1950 with the pathetic denouement that is the “Year of Mercy.”
Watch out for anti-Catholic atheists in the comments if you go to Youtube. They even parrot the now completely debunked claims that Pius XII ordered prayers offered in celebration of Hitler’s birthday.
