Nicknamed the “Iron Man’s Pilgrimage”, the Santa Fe Pilgrimage is a 33-mile walk overnight in the heart of Kansas, t the 19-foot tall Padilla Cross. The pilgrimage America’s first martyr-priest, Father Juan de Padilla.
I went on the pilgrimage last year, and it is a wonderful experience, pushing our bodies to the limit in the hot Kansas summer to witness to the glory of Jesus Christ. The entire night we walked through was filled with prayer and devotion, and the wonderful experience of traveling with other Traditional Catholic men.

From parish bulletin of Saint Andrew Parish.
1. Lent is the principal season of penance in our Catholic calendar. Everyone is urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial, attentiveness to prayer, and especially to works of charity and mercy.
2. Everyone of 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017, and all the Fridays of Lent.
3. Everyone of 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017, and Good Friday, April 14, 2017.
4. On these two days of fast and abstinence, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each ones needs, but together they cannot equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on days of fast, but liquids are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
5. To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is a serious matter.
In this Remnant Underground episode, Michael Matt talks about the courage of the martyrs, the world of Catholicism 50 years ago, and contrasts it with the world of today. It is a good episode, and definitely worth 30 minutes of your time.
A great voice in the traditional Catholic movement, John Vennari, is dying. Please pray for him.
From the Remnant Newspaper –
A few moments ago I spoke via telephone with a Catholic gentleman, a beloved husband, a father and dear friend. His name is John Vennari, and he was told earlier today by his doctors that he is now in the “active stages of dying.”
John asked me to do him a favor and help him notify his many, many friends all around the world that he may not live to see his birthday on Friday. He wishes everyone to know that he’s not in pain. He wishes us all to know that, as he put it, “either we believe in Divine Providence or we don’t. I believe in it, and I know that God has known for all eternity that I would be here in this hospital today, ready to die.”
Read the rest there 😦
Dearest Lord, if it be your will, please heal Your servant, John Vennari. But if this is his time to die, please welcome him into Your loving arms.
