Please pray for Tantumblogo’s son

Please pray for my son

June 22, 2017
Posted by Tantumblogo

My son has another MRI tomorrow. This year of Our Lord two-thousand and seventeen has really been our annus horribilis, not just with my son’s brain tumor diagnosis but a dozen other things as well. We’re facing myriad challenges on many fronts. We’re having a major problem with almost every child. One is mired in persistent scruples. Another is sinking into depression. Others have suddenly decided to flake out academically. And my son, even if his tumor is not growing, which I pray it is not, is having some severe behavioral problems, we think related to the anti-seizure medication, which we’ve changed, but we aren’t really sure. And academically he’s really struggling, at least with reading. Of course he has dyslexia which may be being caused by his tumor. And all these are only some of the more major items. read more

Precious Blood of Jesus novena, June 22-30.

Novena to the Precious Blood

Holy and Eternal Father, behold, I present myself before Thee,
begging Thee to listen favorably to the supplication
I most humbly address to Thy Divine Majesty.
It is not in my name I pray, but in the name of Jesus Whom I have offended,
and Who pardons me mercifully.
I substitute Him in my place. It is His Divine Blood which I present to Thee,
O God of goodness, repeating a thousand times from the depth of my heart:
Jesus Crucified is my reparation, I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my Victim, my Holocaust, my Host, I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my tender solicitude for sinners
and my sorrow for their offences and my own, I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my prayer as His Blood is my voice,
I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my faith, my hope and my love, I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my adoration, I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my zeal for Thy glory and for that of His Precious Blood,I offer Him to Thee;
Jesus Crucified is my surety,as His Blood is payment of all my debt, I offer Him to Thee. read more

Our Lady of Perpetual Help novena June 18-26



Behold at thy feet, O Mother of Perpetual Help, a wretched sinner who has recourse to thee and confides in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me. I hear thee called by all the refuge and the hope of sinners: be then, my refuge and my hope. Assist me, for the love of Jesus Christ; stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature who recommends himself to thee, and who devotes himself to thy service for ever. I bless and thank Almighty God, who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee, which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation. It is true that in the past I have miserably fallen into sin, because I had not recourse to thee. I know that, with thy help, I shall conquer. I know, too, that thou wilt assist me, if I recommend myself to thee; but I fear that, in time of danger, I may neglect to call on thee, and thus lose my soul. This grace, then, I ask of thee, and this I beg, with all the fervor of my soul, that in all the attacks of hell I may ever have recourse to thee. O Mary, help me. O Mother of Perpetual Help, never suffer me to lose my God.—3 Hail Marys. read more

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina and Father Ingo Dollinger, 1967

On this Trinity Sunday, 11 June 2017, Dr. Ingo Dollinger died. We just received notice from his secretary in Germany that he peacefully died at 3:57 P.M. German time, in his home, surrounded by his secretary and friends. He had been weak and in pain for quite some time now. As his secretary said to me: “His face shines beautifully in his death.”

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, whose spiritual son Father Dollinger was, had once told him that he was to have much to suffer at the end of his life. This turned out to be true. read more

Re. Fr. Normandin (Canadian Priest)

First, thank you everyone for your prayers but Father is still alive and the report I passed on was based on another priest’s announcement at Mass the other day. That priest was misinformed. Fr. Normandin IS seriously ill with clots in his lungs and certainly prayers for this selfless priest will continue to be appreciated.

I posted the following comment on Facebook re. how unfortunate it is that people don’t verify such urgent news before giving it out…

Feast of Corpus Christi novena June 6-14

With that profound humility which the Faith itself inspires in me, O My God and Savior Jesus Christ, true God and true man, I love Thee with all my heart and I adore Thee Who art hidden here, in reparation for all the irreverence, profanations and sacrileges which Thou receives in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar.

I adore Thee, O My God, if not so much as Thou art worthy to be adored nor so much as I am bound to do, yet as much as I am able; would that I could adore Thee with that perfect worship which the Angels in Heaven are enabled to offer Thee. May Thou, O My Jesus, be known, adored, loved and thanked by all men at every moment in this most holy and divine Sacrament. Amen read more
