Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord

Thy lightnings enlightened the world: the earth shook and trembled. (Psalm) How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of Hosts! My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord.

Indulgence Opportunity!

The Plenary Indulgence is granted to all the faithful who are truly repentant who, in church or in chapel, devoutly attend the divine Sacrifice of Mass and offer prayers to Jesus Christ the Eternal High Priest, for the priests of the Church, and any other good work which they have done on that day, so that he may sanctify them and form them in accordance with His Heart, as long as they have made expiation for their sins through sacramental confession and prayed in accordance with the Supreme Pontiff's intentions: on the days in which the Year for Priests begins and ends, on the day of the 150th anniversary of the pious passing of St John Mary Vianney [oops, that was actually on August 4], on the first Thursday of the month [today] or on any other day established by the local Ordinaries for the benefit of the faithful...

Lastly, the Partial Indulgence is granted to all the faithful every time they devoutly recite five Our Fathers, Hail Marys and Glorias, or another expressly approved prayer, in honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to obtain that priests be preserved in purity and holiness of life...

From the Decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary, 25 April 2009.

John - Love your info on Transfiguration. On another note do you know anyone who teaches Latin here in the States, MI particularly. My sister's school in Marshall Mi is looking for someone.

I teach Latin. Do they want someone this year or next?

Lisa has a cousin who does teach high school Latin, so I'll forward your question on to Stef.
