LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité

Well, it was a good slogan; even if Liberty did mean the liberty to slay anyone you didn’t like, Equality the sort of equality spoken of at the end of ‘Animal Farm’, and Fraternity a brotherhood, at least in the early days, of the arrogant, greedy, and murderous.

In the last 221 years France has had its ups and downs; and I doubt it will ever again be the home of the Most Christian King.

However, it is still the home of many who do hold fast to the Catholic Faith; despite the grave shortages of priests, and sometimes the lack of enthusiasm and commitment on the part of some of the Bishops; and they need our prayers.

So please pray today for the Church in France, that the faithful may retain their commitment and their Faith; and that the faithless may be drawn back to the bosom of Holy Mother Church until France is once again a soundly Catholic country.
