My “Religious” New Years Resolution: (as opposed to my “temporal” resolution: quit smoking) To Pray for the Dead More, as so many Catholics now assume that Grandpa automatically reaches the Beatific Vision directly after death. No one prays for them anymore, as they are not told the Truth. Every funeral is now a Canonization.

I always wondered while looking on old Papal Functions why things just looked more “mystical” or just had a strange ambience lacking in the modern functions. (Besides the obvious changes in Liturgy, Vestments, etc). Well, then I saw two pics I had saved, and noticed the change in lighting. Compare the 2 below pics of St. Peter’s. Notice the difference in lighting, the old pic (on top) has the chandeliers stringed together. The new pic (on bottom) has no chandeliers.

To Visit In Their Tribulation

And if any man think himself to be religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one’s self unspotted from this world. (James 1: 26)
