Maker of all things! God most high!

Great Ruler of the starry sky!

Who, robing day with beauteous light,

Hast clothed in soft repose the night,

That sleep may wearied limbs restore,

And fit for toil and use once more;

May gently soothe the careworn breast,

And lull our anxious griefs to rest.

… St. Ambrose, “Evening Hymn”, trans. J.D. Chambers, quoted in St. Augustine, Confessions

As I was telling someone last night, if you are one who is interested in exploring true Catholic magic, I cannot overemphasize the usefulness of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Venerated since the 14th century, these auxillary saints have been known to be particularly helpful in the prevention and recovery of a wide variety of ailments, making them invaluable to the magician as a source of healing. Further, any saint known to alleviate a symptom can be asked to inflict that same symptom, making them a curse-slinger’s best weapon. Queue shameless plug: For a truly robust spirit court, consider the Fourteen Holy Helpers, today.

One in Christ

11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called the uncircumcision by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; 18 for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
