Road work today, so I leave you with a few notes:

Rosary Celebration at the Our Lady of Joyful Hope Shrine in Kingstree, SC: 11:oo AM on Saturday 11 October 2008.

Reverend James L. Miara will celebrate Mass. (followed by a bring your own picnic).


Blessed Stanislaus Papczynski was unknown to me (until the Director of Our Lady of Joyful Hope Shrine directed my attention to him).

Blessed Stanislaus if the founder of the Marian Congregation, which congregation runs the Divine Mercy Shrine in Stockbridge, MA.

Blessed Stanislaus also heavily promoted praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory-something close to my heart.

Pope Benedict XVI has called him "an apostle of intercessory prayer for the dead."

Blessed Stanislaus called this practice "the greatest charity to pray earnestly to God for the freedom of the souls remaining in purgatory".

Oremus pro invicem!
