Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition

The Our Father contains all the duties we owe to God, the acts of all the virtues, and the petitions for all our spiritual and corporal needs.  …

Saint Augustine says that whenever we say the Our Father devoutly, our venial sins are forgiven.

 The Secret of the Rosary, St. Louis De Montfort, 12th Rose.


What we hold

We don’t really know someone else until he is tested. Nor do we really know ourselves until we are tested. This greater knowledge of self and others is one of the great blessings of living in these trying times.

Catholic Candle note: To assist parents in homeschooling, we call your attention to a new Traditional Catholic homeschool which is now accessible worldwide.  Here is some information about this homeschool:

Angelic Doctor Academy

We would like to introduce Angelic Doctor Academy, a Traditional Catholic homeschool for grades 9 – 12 (lower grades coming soon).  We think Traditional Catholics will appreciate our unique and militantly Traditional Catholic curriculum.  We have written many new textbooks because we saw the problems in many books commonly used, whether they were history, science, or in other disciplines.  We think Catholic parents – especially busy mothers – will appreciate our unique grading system in which we correct everything, including handwritten essays.  This allows the parents to concentrate on teaching, explaining, and keeping order.   Please visit to learn more.   Mention that you are a Catholic Candle subscriber for a 10% discount on materials.  Thank you!
