Babylonian: The Enuma Elish
It is a disgraceful and a dangerous thing for an unbeliever to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of scripture, talking nonsense on these topics. Many non-Christians are well-versed in Natural knowledge, so they can detect vast ignorance in such a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The danger is obvious– the failure to conform interpretation to demonstrated [“Natural,” or scientific] knowledge opens the interpreter, and by extension, Christianity as a whole, to ridicule for being unlearned.
– St. Augustine
O Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, the glory of Christians, the joy of the universal Church, and the hope of the world, pray for us. Kindle in all the faithful a lively devotion to the most Holy Eucharist, so that they may all be made worthy to receive Holy Communion every day.
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, pray for us!
May is the month of Mary; take this time to reflect on what tremendous hardships she must have endured as the mother of Jesus.
Even through those tremendous hardships, we feel/experience the loving, serenity of Mary, just as one sees with a mother and her child. When you think of the Mother Mary, what feelings come to you?
