in His Passion. Despite Catherine's extraordinary interior life, she continued
to serve the monastery in many capacities including prioress for 36 years. The
Canticle of the Passion was revealed to Catherine immediately after her first
great ecstasy of the Passion. Our Lady desired Catherine to spread it as a form
of prayer and contemplation pleasing to Our Lord.

is the day before Valentine’s Day and it is no accident that our secular
brothers and sisters promote International
Condom Day which seeks to promote the use of condoms as a
means of preventing unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections
(STI's) rather than the moderation of the passions. The holiday is also
promoted by the AHF (AIDS Healthcare Foundation) in an effort to reduce the
spread of HIV thru safe sex practices.
World Radio Day
World Radio Day seeks to
celebrate the importance of the radio in improving international cooperation,
providing access to information and supporting free speech. The day also serves
to promote the radio as a means of communication in times of need and emergency.
Radios are still the most readily available medium that can disseminate
information to reach the widest and most diverse audiences in the shortest
amount of time. The idea of World Radio Day was first proposed by Spain's Radio
Academy in 2010. The following year, in 2011, UNESCO declared the first World
Radio Day. Since then, World Radio Day has been celebrated annually on February
13th, a day chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the United Nations Radio, the UN's international broadcasting service,
which was established on February 13th, 1946.

family has a history with the radio industry as my grandfather was a pioneer of
the industry having the 22nd radio license in the United States.
WITH GATES/HARRIS 60 YEARS Noel Havermale had the first radio station in
Quincy. When Noel sold out, the WCA W transmitter went to Parker Gates. From
July 26, 1943 until September 4, 1968, Jim Havermale worked here. On September
29, 1979, Joe Havermale retired after being here since September 27, 1944. At
the present time, Bob Havermale is an Electronic Test Technician in the
Transmitter Test Lab. He started working here on July 16, 1979. Bob is the son
of Jim, nephew of Joe, and Noel was his grandfather. Sharing with you, a letter
from Parker Gates to Jim and Joe Havermale at the time of Noel's death in 1956.
Dear Jim and Joe:
March 29, 1956
am sending this letter to both of you and tossed a penny to determine whether I
should send it to Jim or Joe and Jim's name came up, so Jim I will appreciate
your passing the letter on to Joe after you have read it. I am writing, of
course, pertaining to the passing of your good father a few days ago and to
express my sincere sympathy in your loss which I feel is not only a generous
one to your immediate family but to the radio industry as a whole. I recall as
a young man having the privilege of sitting in the WCA W studios at 11th &
Maine when your Dad was the first broadcaster in the city of Quincy. Just to
sit in this hallowed ground was quite a privilege. Later, when your Dad decided
to cease broadcasting, I had the WCA W transmitter in my home for a short while
but being more expensive than I could afford at the time, it was considered a
loan and your Dad was most generous in looking at it that way. As a pioneer of
radio broadcasting, he did a great deal to make it easier for those of us who
are now in what has turned out to be quite a big industry and I am sure your
Dad had the pleasure many times in both listening and looking at modern
networks as well as local broadcasting and knowing that he pioneered this great
industry. I sincerely trust that the passing of time will quickly heal your
grief and I am sure that your Dad was well acquainted with the sympathetic
attention which you gave him. Sincerely yours, Parker Gates 1661 Jersey Street
NOVENA TO THE HOLY FACE
Most Holy and Blessed
Trinity, through the intercession of Holy Mary, whose soul was pierced through
by a sword of sorrow at the sight of the passion of her Divine Son, we ask your
help in making a perfect Novena of reparation with Jesus, united with all His
sorrows, love and total abandonment.
We now implore all the Angels
and Saints to intercede for us as we pray this Holy Novena to the Most Holy
Face of Jesus and for the glory of the most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy
Psalm 51, 5-6a.
My offenses truly I know them; My sin is always before me. Against you, you alone, have I sinned; what is evil in your sight I have done.
Most Holy Face of Jesus, we
are truly sorry that we have hurt you so much by constantly doing what is
wrong; and for all the good works we have failed to do. Immaculate Heart of
Mary, Saint Joseph, intercede for us, help us to console the Most Holy Face of
Jesus. Pray that we may share in the tremendous love Thou hast for one another
and for the most Holy and Blessed Trinity. Amen.
Through the merits of your
precious blood and your Holy Face, O Jesus, grant us our petition, Pardon and
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit,
Sanctifier, all powerful God of love, Thou who didst fill the Virgin Mary with
grace, Thou who didst wonderfully transform the hearts of the apostles, Thou
who didst endow all Thy martyrs with a miraculous heroism, come and sanctify
us, illumine our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify
our judgments, set our hearts on fire and preserve us from the misfortune of
resisting Thine inspirations. We consecrate to Thee our understanding, our
heart and our will, our whole being for time and for eternity. May our understanding
be always submissive to Thy heavenly inspirations and to the teachings of Thy
Holy Catholic Church, of which Thou art the infallible guide; may our heart be
ever inflamed with love of God and neighbor; may our will be ever conformed to
the divine will, and may our whole life be a faithful imitation of the life and
virtues of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to whom with the Father and Thee
be honor and glory forever. Amen
Pray one (1) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary’s,
(1) Glory Be.
O Bleeding Face, O Face Divine, be every adoration Thine. (Three times)

Article 7-THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT
You shall not steal.
2401 The seventh commandment forbids unjustly taking
or keeping the goods of one's neighbor and wronging him in any way with respect
to his goods. It commands justice and charity in the care of earthly goods and
the fruits of men's labor. For the sake of the common good, it requires respect
for the universal destination of goods and respect for the right to private
property. Christian life strives to order this world's goods to God and to
