Old Souls' BiWeekly: August 24, 2019

Miracle in Windsor?

Windsor, Ontario experienced what many are calling a miraculous event. An icon of the Blessed Virgin began weeping drops of oil. Church Militant documented the story here. Check it out and see for yourself!

Traditional Carmelite Order Has a Vocation Boom

Lifesite News featured a Discalced Carmelite order who has returned to the Traditional Latin Mass. They are currently experiencing a boom in vocations—and building an amazing stone monastery! Check out the story here. More information on the order, including how to be perpetually enrolled (I show off the beautiful art they send enrollees here) can be found at their website.

Pants or No Pants?

The controversial modesty debate was reignited this week by a wonderful article from Stefanie Nicholas featured in Catholic Family News. It's very worth a read. (For where we stand on the modesty debate, check out our modesty series here, a separate post for modesty at the beach here, and our thought's on male modesty here.)

Save the Date!

The Fatima Center is hosting a conference, this time for young people (under 30). They have some amazing speakers lined up. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your faith, for spiritual renewal, and to meet other young Catholics just like you! That's a win-win-win. For more details on the conference, check out their website here. For a taste of what the talks will be like, check out talks from previous conferences on their YouTube channel.

A Chance to Pray with and for Your Country

Worried about the state of things in the United States? Wish there was something you can do? There is! Join Catholics across the nation for a 54-day rosary novena for the twofold intention of our nation and the Amazon Synod. It's already started, but that doesn't mean you can't join in! Read more about it here.

August Is Dedicated to the Immaculate Heart

One of my Twitter friends shared a link to a free, online version of this book, Miniature Life of Mary, and I have to say, it is delightful. It contains a short meditation for every day, along with ways to renew your devotion to Our Lady. My particular favorite was the author's suggestion to write down one devotion per sheet of paper (listed in the picture below) and draw out of a jar each month to see which one you will do. What a great family activity—and a great month to start!

Saturday Evening Reading

This month's meditation comes from an excerpt from Fr. Doyle's diary about overcoming your major defect. Fr. Doyle was an Irish priest who died in World War I as a military chaplain. Read the excerpt here.
