The Church's Year
At the Introit of the Mass implore with great confidence the mercy of God in the words of Ps. LXXXV.:
INTROIT Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I have cried to thee all the day; for thou, O Lord, art sweet and mild, and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon thee.
Bow down thy ear to me, O Lord, and hear me, for I am needy and poor. Glory be to the Father, etc.
COLLECT Let Thy grace, we beseech Thee, O Lord, ever precede and follow us, and make us continually intent upon good works. Through etc.
EPISTLE (Ephes. III. 13-21) Brethren, I pray you not to faint at my tribulations for you, which are your glory. For this cause I bow my knees. to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom all paternity in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened by his Spirit with might unto the inward man, that Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts: that being rooted and founded in charity, you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and height, and depth:, to know also the charity of Christ, which surpasseth all knowledge, that you may be filled unto all the fulness of God. Now to him who is able to do all things more abundantly than we desire or understand, according to the power that worketh in us: to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus, unto all generations, world without end. Amen.

So You Took An Oath to Defend and Preserve the Constitution.....For All Members of the Military and Police Forces
By Anna Von Reitz
Most of the people we talk to who say that they "took an oath to preserve and defend the Constitution"----including many military officers---- : (1) don't know what a Constitution is; (2) never seriously sat down and studied or thought about any one of the three Constitutions Americans are likely to encounter; (3) don't know which Constitution they took an Oath to.
This article is for all those people.
The greatest enemy we face every day is ignorance. The second greatest is sloth-- which leads to the careless "taking for granted" of things which should never be taken for granted.
A "constitution" is a debt agreement.
It lays out services to be provided, who is responsible for providing these services, how they will be administered, and who pays for the services.
Even a cursory glance at any one of the three (3) Constitutions Americans are likely to see reveals that, yes, indeed, all these matters are covered--howbeit, in different forms and by different parties.
No doubt it is a surprise to many that we have three Constitutions. Let's start there and review the facts.
