Post #151

Topics: Catholic Missionaries: The Alvarez' in Manilla...Brick by Brick: Confession in Kansas City...Immaculate Heart of Mary: Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, Pray for Us.


My daughter (you know I am not married nor ever had children...ask me if you need to), 24 years of age, just bought a house and will give birth in April. I was particularly tickled to learn that she wants to use a traditional baptismal gown for the christening of the child, male or female. I know this is an old custom (I am in posession of my baptismal gown and a picture of me in it!), but is it an old Catholic tradition?...or is it a Hispanic Tradition (in our case)? What say you? I am so glad the child (male or female) will not be dressed in a "suit" or fancy dress fitted for an infant...sumpin' ain't quite right 'bout that.

One Mexican tradition (in as far as our families and local custom has observed) is to pierce the baby girls ears. I figured five people will be in the delivery room: the doctor, the nurse, the mother, grandma and the cosmetologist, studs in hand.

Oh for Pete's sake I was just kidding....but the baby's ears will get peirced.

Ain't life grand!

...and now for the necessaries.

Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of two local churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.

 Confessions – Every Parish, Every Wednesday in Lent

Sometimes I wonder if Bp. Finn of Kansas City, MO and Archbp. Naumann of Kansas City, KS compete with each other to be the best Catholic bishop they can be.
Here is great news from Kansas City, Kansas.

Take this in:

The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered at churches throughout the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas on Wednesdays during Lent. Take advantage of this opportunity to receive the cleansing graces of Confession this spring.

Confession available every Wednesday through Holy Week from 6-7 p.m.
(not offered on Ash Wednesday)

Many resources are available to prepare for Lent and the Sacrament of Penance. This page contains helpful information.

So… every Catholic in the area will be able to know when a confessor will be available.

Not bad.

Brick by brick, friends.

that out of many hearts thoughts may be revealed.”

Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
