Happy Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception to all True Catholics! See Pope Pius IX's Official Proclamation of this Sacred Dogma here: http://www.todayscatholicworld.com/dogma-immaculate-conception.htm
Today (Sept 24th) is the holy feast day of Our Lady of Ransom.
"Ah! if our Blessed Lady be for us, who can be against us?" -Fr. Titus Joslin
An amazing eye-opening site that I was blessed to come across!
This is meant in a spiritual sense/manner, via a pious thought... or prayer.
Thanks for posting the book, "Memorials of Those who Suffered for the Catholic faith in Ireland in the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries". We need to pray for Ireland!
