A lovely home at 43 Calton Road East. DVH lived here until his death in 1977. In fact, he passed away here, while laying in bed in the den. I would like to see his cause for canonization proposed. DVH was a convert to the Faith and one of the very best Catholic philosophers of the twentieth century. It would be nice to see this somehow preserved as a museum/library or meeting place for Catholic intellectuals.
A lovely home at 448 Central Park West, overlooking Central Park. DVH arrived in the USA in 1940 as a destitute refugee after having fled the Nazis who were hunting him. This was his first real home in the New World, which he maintained until he retired from teaching at Fordham Uni and accepted another position in New Rochelle. I wish some good Catholic foundation could rent the flat and host DVH study days and cocktail parties here.
It is made in Norfolk, the land where the Royal family traditionally spends their Christmas at Sandringham House. The water is from the enchanting little hamlet of Walsingham, which is one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations in the UK. It is quite a lovely place to visit, especially in the autumn to admire the nature, the fall colours, seeing game birds everywhere, including grouse and pheasant, while hearing hunters and their dogs call in the distance.
I have to say Archangel Gin is my absolute favorite gin. In fact, I like it so much I drink it straight.
A class act. So proud of my daughter! Catholic culture thrives in "Latin Mass" communities.
Why? Because the church culture surrounding it makes known the treasures of Catholicism within the context
of a Western culture that is in the process of rejecting it and the
Faith responsible for its own greatness. The tried traditions of the Church offer an antidote to the universal phenomenon of an
accelerating secularism that is hostile to church and the salvific charge given to it by our Lord.
The Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite disseminates through a variety of disciplines the fullness
of Catholic culture and helps fight against the corrupting influence
of secularism and its many corollaries.
Yours truly purchased this in Fatima as a gift for friends with a new baby living in Paris. These lovely medallions are seen in Catholic countries, offered in blue or pink, available in Rome, Fatima and elsewhere. You can easily pin them in the stroller (pram) or in the baby crib or bassinet. Always make sure to have a priest bless it.
Eucharistic procession at our wonderful parish in Canada, Saints Joachim and Ann in Aldergrove, British Columbia. We are very proud of this little parish in the Fraser Valley east of Vancouver. All of this is thanks to our excellent pastor, Fr. William Ashley!
Hopefully Catholic moms will be brought to this post from Google searches. I invite moms to spearhead celebrations like this on the parish level. You can get a few ideas from the photos. Work with your pastor. Make it liturgical - include Vespers. And lots of candy! Sometimes it takes a mom. Moms are perfect for this. Thanks, Sarah, for putting on this great celebration in Canada!
