This summer, I’m going to be a hero, Philip Connelly thought as he lay under a large maple tree on his parents’ farm. He thought that there had to be something he could do that would be important, and remembered by people everywhere, and for all time. But, what could it be? Would it happen this summer, and how would anyone know when he lived on a farm far from any large city? Philip is a teen growing up on a farm in Indiana. This summer will see him mature in many ways: physically, mentally and spiritually. When he was a small boy, Philip thought he could see an angel. But, that was some time ago, and during this period of change in his life, he’ll once again meet that angel! Join Philip as his angel shows him scenes from the lives of saints that parallel his life such as Augustine, Benedict, Scholastica, Catherine of Siena and others.

Don’t Forget Mr. Michael J. Matt at Holy Rosary in Indianapolis this Sunday, April 13th at 1:30 pm

Father Michael Magiera, FSSP along with Holy Rosary parish and Father Gerard Saguto, FSSP along with St. Philomena & Cecilia parish will host Mr. Michael J. Matt, editor of THE REMNANT on Sunday, April 13.  Mr. Matt will speak from his book, GODS OF WASTLAND, Fifty Years of Rock and Roll. says:

This book is a frank discussion with Christian parents and teenagers.  It delves into the history, the attraction, the importance and the destructiveness of rock music – a destructiveness that drives children from their parents, families from their roots and society from God Himself. 

Having been a long-time fan of rock music and an amateur musician, Mr. Matt’s discussion provides invaluable insight into what’s wrong with rock music and how one goes about separating himself from it forever.  A great read for Christian teenagers everywhere!

Aside from editing the fortnightly, The Remnant Newspaper, Mr. Matt also gives lectures on cultural liberalism and the pop culture throughout the US and Canada. Mr. Matt lives with his wife and children in St. Paul, Minnesota.
