Visitors ask...Why is Pentecost called "Whitsunday?"

The totally indispensable New Advent Encyclopedia states: "Whitsunday is so called from the white garments which were worn by those who were baptised during the vigil..."

The Catholic Review Online: How we got here

In his weekly column, "Thoughts on Our Church," Archbishop Edwin O'Brien reviews the course of events by which Catholic politicians were able to be support abortion while claiming to be Catholic. Here is a portion of his column:

In a first-rate address to more than a hundred bishops gathered last February for a workshop conducted by the National Catholic Bioethics Center, Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, referred to a Wall Street Journal opinion piece of January 7 of this year.

Titled “How Support for Abortion Became Kennedy Dogma,” the article goes a long way in explaining how so many Catholic politicians, once pro-life, arrived at a deplorable compromise, abandoned their pro-life convictions, and even became, in too many instances, ardent “pro-choice” proponents.

In 1964, Robert Kennedy was seeking a New York Senate seat and brother Ted was running for re-election to the United States Senate from Massachusetts. Liberal, well-funded pro-abortion groups were gaining traction at the grass roots and targeting politicians in the Northeast as prospective torch-bearers for the movement. The Kennedys knew they would need theological backing to claim that a Catholic politician could support abortion rights “in good conscience” and they turned to a group of six dissident priests.

The article is must reading...

Vocation Gold Mine: Vocation-Station, Canada

I love the internet. While searching for something else, I stumbled upon this blog--"Vocation-Station"-- posted by a "hermit without a permit" who lists his address as Canada. The blog is rather unique in that it catalogs religious Orders and posts the information as video clips.

In the right menu, here is how the Orders are listed by category:
  • "AUDIO only" (5)
  • "Pope Benedict" (4)
  • "the Passion of the Christ" (1)
  • Benedictines (21)
  • Brothers (13)
  • Carmelite (5)
  • Carthusian (6)
  • Contemplative (34)
  • Dominican (9)

  • Priesthood (9)

Needless to say, this link is going in the Right Menu. To paraphrase the words to "New York, New York," if you can't find it here, you won't find it anywhere!

Chorus:
United States Military Academy Glee Club
Lyrics written by Ronan Tynan

To fallen soldiers let us sing
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord
No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
Just divine embrace, eternal light
To the Mansions of the Lord.
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord.

19:30 Roundup (EDT) - Vigil of the Ascension (EF) or St. Bernardine of Siena - May 20th, 2009

Visitors ask...when is the Feast of the Ascension celebrated?

For those who used the venerable "Baltimore Catechism," the date was 40 days after Easter which meant "Ascension Thursday." Those who follow the Traditional Liturgical Calendar will celebrate the Feast tomorrow (thus the title of the posts referring to today as the Vigil of the Feast of the Ascension). For the Ordinary Form in the U.S., it is not so simple.

Here is the link to About.Catholicism.com. Note that :

Answer: Ascension Thursday falls on May 21, 2009, and it will be celebrated on that day in the ecclesiastical provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and the state of Nebraska.

In these Arch(Dioceses), this refers to the Ordinary Form Mass of the Latin Rite as well as the Usus Antiquior. However, the USCCB has decided to allow this Feast to be moved to the Sunday following (which is the Seventh Sunday after Easter) if the Ordinary decides this is beneficial. Therefore, most of the rest of the US commemorates this Feast at Masses on Sunday, May 24th.

I KNOW that the Archdiocese of Baltimore follows this Sunday policy, and I BELIEVE that the Archdiocese of Washington, and the Dioceses of Wilmington and Arlington follow this policy too. You'd better check to be sure, however! As the link above states:
Since Ascension is a holy day of obligation, if you are unsure which day your diocese will celebrate it, you should check with your parish priest or your diocesan office.
Caveat emptor!
