388- The Virgin Mary and Island Names

I spent time in the Caribbean Islands and was struck by the beauty of the aquamarine waters, the coral reefs, deep blue of the ocean, the luscious vegetation and tropical island feel.

The human tragedy of slavery should never be forgotten in these islands and its lingering memory overshadows much of the beauty.

Fortunately addressing the wrongs of history is top of mind in our contemporary times.

Following this trip my awareness has led me to begin to look more deeply into it, however at this time I have only just begun to scratch the surface and need to spend more time learning of the past before being able to report on it at this time.

Here’s what did strike me that I can report on, the naming of the various islands in the Caribbean and the Virgin Mary’s influence.

387- Our Lady of the Golden Fountain

Welcome to Constant Procession- Season 24!

I’m happy to report this season will include new adventures as I seek places that on one hand are locations or activities of extreme change, and on the other hand I’ll look for places timeless in nature.

These podcasts will offer a view from traditional Christian perspectives, as my goal is to spotlight the positive aspects of Christian living that frequently get overlooked.

Endless horizons
Something greater beyond life’s horizons

For those new to Constant Procession podcasts, each weekly episode has typically 2 parts. I like to keep you updated on my books as they progress from idea to implementation.

And the 2nd part of these podcasts usually covers a seldom told event from the history of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world.

There is more that occurs during this week of “thanksgiving” that sometimes gets overlooked due to the rush of preparation activities for “Turkey Day.”

Holy Tradition for Tuesday, November 21 is the Feast Day that celebrates when the Virgin Mary’s presentation or entry into the temple came about. She was just 3 years old at the time.

379- St Louis De Monfort, A Devotion to Mary

St. Louis Marie de Montfort is known for his devotion to the Virgin Mary.

Illustration of St Louis Marie de Montfort
Illustration from St Bonaventure Catholic Church- stboncc.com

One of his most respect books in circulation today, True Devotion to Mary was “lost” for 150 years.

It seems that perhaps the “loss” of this work harbored a period of time when his peers considered St Monfort’s work not to be worth keeping around.

378- Theodore & Egwin; Forgotten Saints of England

St. Theodore of Tarsus, Archbishop of Canterbury and St. Egwin, Bishop of Worchester lived in England during the time when all Christian churches in Great Britian were unified as one body in Christ.

Saint Theodore of Canterbury created a religious governance that prefigured Parliament!

The Virgin Mary appeared to St Egwin in Evesham.

St Egwin then built the Evesham Abbey, the 3rd great monastery of England.

Henry VIII had it destroyed.

The ruins eventually became a stone quarry for villagers from the surrounding English countryside.

And today there remains only an arch of the once vibrant Christian community.

St Mary Mazzarello had a vision of a big building filled with orphaned girls.

She remembered this vision when St Bosco of the Salesians asked her to create the Daughters of Mary, Help of Christians (aka Salesian Sisters) to take care of abandoned young girls.

It is now a world-wide organization.

376- St John Bosco, called by Mary

St John Bosco sensed that the educator must not stay away from the boys’ exuberance as he himself had experienced as a child.

“Don” Bosco believed he must share it, organize it when it failed to develop by itself, and avoid anything that may prevent it.

Today the society he created, The Society of St Francis de Sales or the Salesians of Don Bosco can be found in over 125 countries around the world.
