Connecting the Dots


“Connect-the-dots” is a tagline used to explain the joining of scripture based homilies to one or more Catholic Catechism elements in an environment which recognizes the unique beauty of Catholicism.    The phrase is intended as a way (but certainly not the only way) to draw attention to fact that   Catholicism is the one true Church founded by Jesus Christ Himself.  One should understand two basic premises in order to accept the legitimacy of “connecting the dots”.

What Can I DO?

Catholic Complacency exists because it’s been allowed to; perhaps even cultivated by those entrusted with helping us gain our salvation. 

Great leadership combats Complacency!   So, what can ordinary good lay people do?  Click here for a short list for your consideration.



We believe in the strength of prayer and its healing power. It heals the spirit and through the intercessions of God, Jesus, Mary and the Saints.


To that end we offer daily, monthly and seasonal prayers and links to the sites that exemplify excellent prayers and intentions.


 Prayers for Priests

We pray to You, O Lord, through Mary the mother of all priests, for Your priests and for ours. Amen.


By St. Therese of Lisieux


O Jesus, eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body.


Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your Precious Blood.


Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.


Let Your holy love surround them and shield them from the world's contagion.


Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.


St. Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits, who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
