90th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF VATICAN CITY STATE---Lateran Pacts (Vatican Coat of Arms)
Monday, February 11, 2019

On the 11th of February 1929, during the pontificate of Pope Pius XI, the “Lateran Pacts” between the Holy See and Italy were signed in the Hall of Honor at the Lateran Palace. It marked the first time since the unification of Italy that normal bilateral relations were established between Italy and the Holy See. The agreements recognized the independence and sovereignty of the Holy See, and at the same time they marked the official “founding” of Vatican City State.

Black vestments may be worn for Masses of Christian Burial as a sign of death and deepest mourning. Black may also be used on the Feast of All Souls or for any Mass of the Dead, such as on the anniversary of the death of a loved one. The Church may robe its ministers in black on Good Friday, to show its greatest grief, caused by the death of the Divine Redeemer.

THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE
Protecting and Defending the Holy Catholic Church

The Catholic League is the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization. Founded in 1973 by the late Father Virgil C. Blum, S.J., the Catholic League defends the right of Catholics – lay and clergy alike – to participate in American public life without defamation or discrimination.

Motivated by the letter and the spirit of the First Amendment, the Catholic League works to safeguard both the religious freedom rights and the free speech rights of Catholics whenever and wherever they are threatened
.
https://www.catholicleague.org/
https://twitter.com/CatholicLeague
https://www.facebook.com/CatholicLeague/

When slanderous assaults are made against the Catholic Church, the Catholic League hits the newspapers, television, and radio talk shows defending the right of the Church to promote its teachings with as much verve as any other institution in society.

+ When Catholics are the victims of a bigoted portrayal by the media, the Catholic League issues news releases bringing the matter to the attention of the public. It may also encourage a boycott of the program’s sponsors.

+ When Catholic students or employees are denied their rights in school or on the job, the Catholic League makes a formal response to the guilty parties; the league’s response may include litigation.

+ When the religious freedom rights of any American are threatened, the Catholic League stands ready to fight for justice in the courts.

+ When Catholics are slighted by public officials, the Catholic League calls press conferences alerting the public to the unacceptable behavior of their servants.

+ When Catholic interests are unfairly represented by public policy initiatives, the Catholic League offers testimony before legislative bodies to set the record straight.

+ When officials in government, the media and education need an informed perspective on Catholic civil rights issues, the Catholic League provides a quick and effective response.

In essence, the Catholic League monitors the culture, acting as a watchdog agency and defender of the civil rights of all Catholics.

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.

I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

Amen.

-- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

“Be a Blessing, Grow the Legacy” Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption 45th Anniversary Gala Presentation

CATHEDRAL OF SAINT MARY OF THE ASSUMPTION LOGO

Our Story

The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption, also known locally as Saint Mary's Cathedral, is the principal church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco in San Francisco, California. It is the mother church of the Catholic faithful in the California counties of Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo and is the metropolitan cathedral for the Ecclesiastical province of San Francisco. The Cathedral Clergy includes Reverend Arturo Albano, Rector and Pastor, Reverend Sebastine Bula,VC, Parochial Vicar. Reverend Mr. R. Christoph Sandoval, senior Deacon and Reverend Mr. Alex Madero, Deacon.

The present cathedral was commissioned just as Vatican II was convening in Rome. Prescriptions of the historic church council allowed the Archdiocese of San Francisco to plan boldly in the building of its new cathedral. That resulted in the modern design of the present structure. Monsignor Thomas J. Bowe served as first rector of the new cathedral from 1962 to 1980. The cornerstone was laid on December 13, 1967, and the cathedral was completed three years later. On May 5, 1971, the cathedral was blessed and on October 5, 1996, was formally dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the name of Saint Mary of the Assumption. The first Papal Mass was celebrated by Pope John Paul II in the cathedral in 1987.

The cathedral is located in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.

The cathedral was designed by local architects John Michael Lee, Paul A. Ryan and Angus McSweeney,[1] collaborating with internationally known architects Pier Luigi Nervi and Pietro Belluschi — at the time, the Dean of the School of Architecture at MIT.

Its saddle roof is composed of eight segments of hyperbolic paraboloids, in such a fashion that the bottom horizontal cross section of the roof is a square and the top cross section is a cross. The design is reminiscent of St. Mary's Cathedral in Tokyo, which was built earlier in the decade.

Measuring 255 feet (77.7 m) square, the cathedral soars to 190 feet (57.9 m) high and is crowned with a 55 feet (16.7 m) golden cross. The building was selected in 2007 by the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects for a list of San Francisco's top 25 buildings.
