I will go to the altar of God --- pray for vocations!



I found this holy card on a really lovely blog named He Gently Calls us and I spent I don't know how long just feasting my eyes at all the beauty. It reminded me once again how far Catholic art has fallen. Mostly our "artists" produce manure piles and call us philistines or stuffy trads for not being fooled.

Amen!

True words have never been spoken.

If the modern age could produce some decent art I'd like to see that in a church; but the problem is the modern age had never really produced any 'decent' art.

I was at the first Communion of a friend's child last year and while they were doing photos the priest asked how many boys were going to become priests. None raised their hands (about 40 kids). The parents laughed (wealthy mainstream Catholics), and the priest, a charming Irish sort, said with a smile, "Laugh now, but wouldn't it be terrible to find yourself on your deathbed with no priest to hear your last Confession? Pray for vocations!" That sobered 'em up!

This image is from a movie named Miracle of Marcelino. It is the story of a baby boy left at the door of a monastery. The monks raise him. If you have never seen it, look it up on youtube. It will change your life as well as your heart. A Eucharistic Feast! http://youtu.be/n24rrPq88zs
