Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus1, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta. Amen.
We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
Below is a picture from our third Authenticum Lecture. Once again we had over 100 guests join us for our presentation. Fr. Aaron Ferris from the Diocese of Grand Rapids, MI lectured on St. Athanasius’ work, On the Incarnation. Look for the audio on our website this week. We will also have copies of the lecture on CD, as well as some printed copies of this work, at our next lecture on January 2.
We also experienced something truly remarkable after the lecture. As we began cleaning up we had a few guests help us and then we all sat down at a table, popped the top on some good brews, saluted the event, and then discussed the talk, the Church, and conversion. We enjoyed each others company until midnight.
We pray this is the beginning to a meeting of friends that will take place after the lectures. See you in January!
