Collect


Prayer over the Offerings for the Assumption

Let this oblation of our devotion ascend unto thee, O Lord: and, at the intercession of the most Blessed Virgin Mary assumed into heaven, may our hearts, enkindled with the fire of thy love, continually yearn after thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reblog: Eve Tushnet

I just read this excellent piece by Eve Tushnet, one of my favorite queer Catholics. (After years of trying, I still haven't been able to come up with a satisfying portmanteau of gay/queer/etc. with Christian/Catholic/etc., it's very frustrating.) Here on her Patheos blog, she states quite neatly and succinctly certain of the problems that plague Catholic-queer dialogue, and have done for decades. The whole (short) piece is good, but I think the gem of it is the sentence, "Surrender and penitence are realistic whereas success is not."
