Being a police officer is a terribly dangerous (and essential) profession. The police in Carroll County, GA released video of a police chase from April 12, 2021, of two men, that ended in an ambush - when one of the criminals shot at them with an AK-47. Three heroic officers were wounded in the whole (hours long) incident/chase. The shooter shown with the AK-47, was killed. An accomplice of the deceased criminal was taken into custody after "a negotiation" with police. To read the full story see: https://tinyurl.com/zszrjptz
Screenshot of Chicago, IL resident Adam Toledo, who resisted arrest [a crime] holding a handgun [a crime for his age], split-seconds before a police officer-involved fatal shooting occurred on 03/29/2021. The MSM will run with this, and claim the officer was racist. Most likely organized criminal looting will insure this evening in Chi-Town, as a form of "justice". Deo gratis the officer is alive - ready to continue to serve his community.
"New York will now offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost work during the pandemic. The effort — a $2.1 billion fund in the state budget — is by far the biggest of its kind in the country and a sign of the state’s shift toward policies championed by progressive Democrats."

REGINA, caeli, laetare, alleluia:
Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
Resurrexit sicut dixit, alleluia.
Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

 

O QUEEN of heaven rejoice! alleluia:
For He whom thou didst merit to bear, alleluia,
Hath arisen as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.

 

On November 16, 1955, the general decree, Maxima Redemptionis Nostrae Mysteria was published which promulgated the reformed rites of Holy Week under the title of Ordo Hebdomadae Sanctus Instauratus, or The Restored Order of Holy Week. Within the decree Maxima Redemptionis the time for ceasing the Lenten fast was changed to midnight:

838-847, III. Lenten abstinence and fast extended to midnight of Holy Saturday:

#10. The abstinence and fast prescribed for Lent, which hitherto has ceased on Holy Saturday after noon, according to canon 1252, §4 [1917 Code], will cease in the future at midnight of the same Holy Saturday.
