19th Sunday after Pentecost 2023
The Epistle for today’s Mass speaks of Baptism, in which the “new man” of Sanctifying Grace is given to the soul, and the Holy Trinity comes to dwell within it. St. Paul tells us not to give place to the devil, and we can follow his direction by the use of the Rosary and the Brown Scapular. The wedding feast of the Gospel refers to Heaven, and the Rosary is the prayer which takes us there. We cannot enter Heaven without the wedding garment of Sanctifying Grace.
