I am a Christian layman who loves the faith. In today's times, where organized religion is seen as unpopular or evil, where the majority of people who claim faith know nothing of it or keep it hidden in fear of offending someone, I proudly stand with Christ and His Church, and see no need to hide the faith in my private life. And so I keep this blog to post media that demonstrates what the Christian faith really looks like, especially a side that not everybody knows or remembers.

Deus in loco sancto suo: Deus qui inhabitáre facit unánimes in domo: ipse dabit virtútem, et fortitúdinem plebi suæ. Ps. Exsúrgat, Deus, et dissipéntur inimíci eius: et fúgiant, qui odérunt eum, a fácie eius. Glória Patri… Deus in loco…

God in His holy place; God who maketh men of one mind to dwell in a house; He shall give power and strength to His people. Ps. Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face. Glory be to the Father … God in His holy place…

greluc:

Pius X was particularly devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the specific title of Our Lady of Confidence; his papal encyclical Ad Diem Illum expresses his desire through Mary to renew all things in Christ, which he had defined as his motto in his first encyclical. Pius X believed that there was no surer or more direct road than by the Virgin Mary to achieve this goal. Pius X was the only pope in the 20th century with extensive pastoral experience and implementation at the parish level, in the sense that he favoured the use of the vernacular language in teaching catechesis while the encouragement for frequent communion became a lasting innovation of his papacy.

He viewed modernism as an import of secular errors affecting three areas of Roman Catholic belief: theology, philosophy, and dogma.

Personally, Pius X combined within himself a strong sense of compassion, benevolence and poverty, but also stubbornness and a certain stiffness. He wanted to be pastoral in the sense that he was the only pope in the 20th century who gave Sunday homily sermons in the pulpit every week. After the 1908 Messina earthquake he filled the Apostolic Palace with refugees, long before the Italian government acted. He rejected any kind of favours for his family; his brother remained a postal clerk, his favourite nephew stayed on as village priest, and his three sisters lived together close to poverty in Rome. He often referred to his own humble origins, taking up the causes of poor people. I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor.

This is important to think about not only from a more traditionalistic standpoint, but also with what is occurring with the black masses in this country.
