Feast of the Immaculate Conception

“We never give more honour to Jesus than when we honour his Mother,
and we honour her simply and solely to honour him all the more perfectly.
We go to her only as a way leading to the goal we seek - Jesus, her Son.”

- Saint Louis Marie de Montfort
(31 Jan 1673 - 28 Apr 1716)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This Catholic Holiday has become an annual part of our December observances together, because of the one big happy Typhoon family we've become.

“We need not walk by the shores of Galilee or among the Judean hills to walk where Jesus walked. All of us can walk the path He walked when, with His words ringing in our ears, His Spirit filling our hearts, and His teachings guiding our lives, we choose to follow Him as we journey through mortality. His example lights the way. Said He, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life.' ”

- Thomas S. Monson
(b. 21 Aug 1927)

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 12/08/18, @ 7:00 AM:
 

  Whenever I want to ponder the beauty of the earth and he magnanimous nature of God above, all I have to do is take a walk down by the sea at sunrise. The colors of the sky and the sea, the fresh air with a salty tang, the birds flying by, these are just a few of the things that bring Him so alive to me. They make me so thankful for the gift of life and the opportunity to experience His love and grace and they also make me strive to stay alive with Him when my days on earth are done. How about you?

   Thank you, Jimmy!

 
 


From Alton Jones ('66) of FL and NC - 12/07/20, 9:51 AM:

FIRST OF ALL, I AM TRULY SORRY FOR THIS ...

I used to know a guy who absolutely loved hollandaise sauce. He would buy the spiciest brand he could find and would put it on just about everything. Well it turned out that because he used the spicy sauce so much, it started to wear down a hole on the roof of his mouth. He went to a doctor and asked what he could do about it. The doctor looked at the damage and determined that the man will need a metal plate placed at the roof of his mouth. The man was relieved but can't help asking the doctor if he will still be able to enjoy his hollandaise sauce. The doctor reassured the man that his new plate will be made of chrome. The man was curious, so he asked if chrome was the best choice. The doctor responded with "Oh don't worry, there's no plate like chrome for the hollandaise."

   Thanks, Alton!


From My Friend, Kim, of FL - 12/07/16:

  Thanks, Kim!
 
 


From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 12/02/18 - "Aging":

God's plan for aging

Well, this is a positive way to explain and deal with aging!!!

Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things, thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose co-ordination so they would drop things, requiring them to bend, reach, and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature, requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.

So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it's God's will. It is all in your best interest, even though you mutter under your breath.

Nine Important Facts to Remember as We Grow Older

#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.

#8 Life is sexually transmitted.

#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

#6 For you wives: Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

#5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.

#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

Please share this wisdom with others while I go to the bathroom.

Right is right, even if nobody is doing it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it.


Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain...

    Thanks, Wayne!

O Gloriosa Virginum

Ascribed to Saint Venantius Fortunatus, Bishop of Poitiers
(c. 530 - c. 600/609)

O gloriósa vírginum,
sublímis inter sídera,
Qui te creávit párvulum
lacténte nutris úbere.

Quod Heva tristis ábstulit,
tu reddis almo gérmine,
Intrent ut astra flébiles,
caeli reclúdis cárdines.

Tu Regis Alti jánua
et aula lucis fúlgida,
Vitam datam per Vírginem,
gentes redémptae pláudite.

Jesu Tibi sit glória,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna saécula.

Amen.

O Queen of all the Virgin choir,
Enthroned above the starry sky;
Who with pure milk from thy own breast
Thy own Creator didst supply. 

What man hath lost in hapless Eve,
Thy sacred womb to man restores;
Thou to the sorrowing here beneath
Hast open’d Heaven’s eternal doors. 

Hail, O refulgent Hall of light!
Hail, Gate sublime of Heaven’s high King!
Through thee redeem’d to endless life,
Thy praise let all the nations sing. 

O Jesu! born of Virgin bright,
Immortal glory be to Thee;
Praise to the Father infinite,
And Holy Ghost eternally.

Amen.
