So, some changes are coming to Catholic Doula Program; we are getting a new "head" of correspondence and will be our student advisory board member. Announcement on who that will be soon. Julie is taking a break for a few months and will be basically handing over the reins to others on our board. In fact, we are forming a more official board for Catholic Doula Program. We may even be rebranding a bit - as that is a project that is still being considered; we are just announcing that we are planning a) an official board of Catholic Doula Program b) an official terms and conditions policy for the site and classes c) an official grievance and ethics policies d) more clarification on the pro-life doula pledge. .(like we have decided to allow supporting surrogacy pregnancies.)
We are moving off Facebook platform and are using the Catholic Social media site and MeWe. Right now, we do not have a Catholic Doula group on MeWe yet. We will let you know when that happens. Facebook is becoming more anti-Catholic. So, that is one reason we have decided to discontinue a page up there. We may still consider a smaller group.
We are actually looking for board members. Board members will be offered a referral page , so they can earn some $ back. So, if you want more information Contact us here. Thank you!
Welcome to the blog: Today we wanted to share with you a prayer against ANY temptation. This prayer information seems to be public domain. St. Anthony is a very great saint to pray to. We usually pray to him to find things. This prayer is also called sometimes "St. Anthony's Brief." I hope you like this information. Source is below.
To pray any time of day, and defeat temptation:
Popular tradition holds that St. Anthony taught a prayer to a poor woman who sought help against the temptations of the devil. The Franciscan Pope Sixtus V had the prayer — also called “the motto of St. Anthony” — engraved into the base of the obelisk erected in St. Peter’s Square in Rome.
In the original Latin, the prayer says
Ecce Crucem Domini!
Fugite partes adversae!
Vicit Leo de tribu Juda,
Radix David! Alleluia!
And translated, it reads:
Behold, the Cross of the Lord!
Begone, all evil powers!
The Lion of the tribe of Judah,
The Root of David, has conquered!
This short prayer has the flavor of a small exorcism. We can use it too — both in Latin and in English — to be able to overcome all the temptations we face.
