Mother of God

Wednesday 5 August 2015

Wednesday of week 18 in Ordinary Time
or Dedication of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major
About Today

Year: B(I). Psalm week: 2.

The Dedication of the Basilica of St Mary Major

The Council of Ephesus in 431 formally proclaimed the mother of Jesus as the Mother of God, and the church (basilica) of St Mary Major on the Esquiline Hill in Rome was built shortly afterwards to celebrate her motherhood. This is the oldest church in the West that is dedicated to Our Lady.
The title “Mother of God” may seem technical or even excessive; but it emphasises the central truth of the Incarnation, that Jesus Christ was not only a true man, but God also; and not only God, but man born of a woman.
Other saints: Blessed Frédéric Janssoone (1838 – 1916)

He was born in Flanders, the youngest of thirteen children. When he was nine years old, his father died, and he left school to help support his mother, until her death in 1861. He then joined the Franciscans and became a priest. After serving as a military chaplain and preaching in the Holy Land, he was sent to Canada on a fund-raising tour in 1881, settling there permanently in 1888. By his preaching and his writing he led many people to bear authentic witness to the Gospel and share his closeness to Christ.

What to do?

I have been running Kafkasworld for a number of years. I will be 64 this year and my health doesn’t improve. Come September 18th I have to decide whether to renew the contract and continue with the website. I’m not sure what to do. It is a three year contract.

comments will be helpful

Music

Sometimes I’m over exaggeration. That’s not exactly what I dictated. I overexaggerate sometimes that’s better. As you can see I’m still experimenting with dictation software.

 

However, when I say I have a large music collection I do not exaggerate. My music collection has Now used up all my hard drive. I are transferring it to a larger drive. So far, it has been copying files for five days still it has a long way to go.

 

I hope this makes some kind of sense.

 

I really do have a very large selection of music.
