Holy Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us!
In many countries, including the USA, today is a holy day of obligation, meaning you need to go to Mass if at all possible. In the UK it is a solemnity (so you do not need to abstain from meat) but it is not an obligation to go to Mass.
Pope Pius X fought tirelessly against modernism and other heresies. Miracles were attributed to him even during his lifetime.
St Pius X, pray for us.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Alexandra Pope, a nineteen-year-old girl who died on Wednesday of a heart attack. She was not Catholic (or even religious), and so needs many prayers. Please also pray for her family’s consolation and conversion. Being atheists, their pain is all the more horrible.
Thank you. God bless.
