From listening to the Chinese Catholics here in the United States, it will be a
difficult and long journey before Catholics will be able to have the same
freedom of expression that they have in Taiwan or southern Korea. Communist
authorities control the Catholic expression of faith in public.

midst of hustle and bustle, encountering the Mother of Joy and her Son, Jesus,
activating and living the Word in everyday life? Father Clifton, a priest

Homily in Honor of Legion of Mary Founder
"The Church in Ireland Is on a Path of Renewal"
Source: Zenit (Dublin) November 27, 2010
Here are the notes from a homily given by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin
on November 20 at the thirtieth anniversary Mass in commemoration of the servant
of God, Frank Duff, founder of the Legion of Mary.
Frank Duff died thirty years ago. This quiet, personally-unassuming man,
in quiet, simple, external circumstances in Dublin, on September 7, 1921
established a movement of prayer, Christian care and Marian spirituality.
The Legion of Mary is a movement which has spread worldwide and has enriched the
Church in many parts of the world, especially at moments in which the Church was
experiencing difficulty and persecution....
Frank Duff founded the Legion of Mary in 1921 at a critical moment in Irish
history. It was a time of political uncertainty which eventually would
explode into civil war. It was a time in which this city was marked by
very harsh poverty and also of widespread moral impoverishment. Frank Duff was a
man who, in the face of a major social challenge, did something. He did
not write a Letter to the Editor. He gathered like-minded men and women around
him into a movement of spiritual renewal, prayer and Christian service. He
was not discouraged either by the size of the challenge or by the paucity of his
means. He was a man of the Church--misunderstood by many in the Church,
including Archbishops of Dublin. Like Mary, his model, he never flinched. Frank
Duff pondered the Word of God day by day and through him then the Lord worked

Ranch Shrine Site of Devotion

On a ranch thirteen miles from the remote high-desert town of Lakeview, Oregon,
a shrine to Mary stands. It's been visited by pilgrims from as far as
Scotland and Africa.
The private Queen of
Peace Shrine was built on the ranch of Leo and Anna Mae Albertson, members
of St. Patrick Parish here.
Built in 1976, it's a family shrine, but people from all over the U.S. and a few
from overseas have come to pray the rosary. Many say their prayers have been
The shrine faces the rising sun and Mary's face and gown are radiant at dawn, as
the morning sun peaks over the Warner Mountains.
Leo is eighty-six and still healthy. When reached in November, he had just
been out elk hunting.
The shrine is open by appointment only May-September by calling 541-947-0972.
You are invited to help us pray for our
intentions. Please take a look! This site has been updated and enhanced
and now allows users to directly submit prayer requests or to volunteer as a
prayer partner for these intentions!

meditation. We also list important Marian dates for each month of the
