St Hyacinth was born near Wroclaw (Breslau), Poland, towards the end of the twelfth century. He was a canon of the Krakow cathedral when, on a journey to Rome in 1220, he was attracted to the Order of Preachers by the holiness and preaching of St Dominic, who received him into the Order.
.
In 1221, he was sent back to Poland to establish the Order where he is venerated as an apostle and great preacher. He is known to have preached and established priories at Gdansk and at Kiel, at a time when the Tartar invasions were at their height. Through all these, St Hyacinth maintained a reputation of gentleness, humility, and courtesy.
.
In the Order he is known for his tender devotion to the Mother of God. He died in Krakow on August 15, 1257.
.
► PRAYER | Loving God, you gave St Hyacinth the grace to preach, that he might draw the peoples of many nations to the light of truth. By your power bring forth good works in our lives, that all may be moved to give you glory. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

ASCENSION VS. ASSUMPTION

The main difference between ascension and assumption is that Jesus ascended into the kingdom of Heaven by His own power while Mary's assumption depended on the power of God. The Church, from the very beginning, has professed the Divinity of our Lord Jesus and His oneness with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Mary was only assumed into heaven, that is to say, not by her own power (because she is not divine, and the Church has never taught that she is), but by the power of her Divine Son Jesus.

Although the dogma of the Assumption was definitively proclaimed only in 1950, this belief has been upheld by the Church as early as the fifth century. We know that the Virgin Mary, at the end of her earthly life, was taken up into heaven by the power of God, because this account has been handed down to us by the Apostles and their successors. The assumption of Mary is part of the Sacred Tradition of the Church, which, along with Sacred Scripture, make up the complete Deposit of Faith.

Her presence in heaven is further confirmed by the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation: "A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head." #LayDominicansPH #DominicansPH #OrderOfPreachers #FraternitiesOP #Catholic #Christian #Church #Gospel #Sunday #Ascension #Assumption #Jesus #Mary #Catechism #Faith #Tradition #Scripture
Pope Pius XII explains the logical connection between Mary's immaculate conception and her assumption:
.
"...These two privileges are most closely bound to one another. Christ overcame sin and death by his own death, and one who through Baptism has been born again in a supernatural way has conquered sin and death through the same Christ. Yet, according to the general rule, God does not will to grant to the just the full effect of the victory over death until the end of time has come. And so it is that the bodies of even the just are corrupted after death, and only on the last day will they be joined, each to its own glorious soul.
.
Now God has willed that the Blessed Virgin Mary should be exempted from this general rule. She, by an entirely unique privilege, completely overcame sin by her Immaculate Conception, and AS A RESULT she was not subject to the law of remaining in the corruption of the grave, and she did not have to wait until the end of time for the redemption of her body."
.
(From the apostolic constitution, Munificentissimus Deus, par. 4-5, promulgated on 1 November 1950)
.
In sum: we believe that, because of her exemption from the stain of original sin, the Blessed Virgin Mary's flesh was not subject to the corruption of the grave. This was an extraordinary grace which Mary enjoyed not by her own power or sole merit, but through Jesus Christ, His Divine Son. .
AVE MARIA!

The Church never taught that Mary had powers on her own. Even she, in her Magnificat, acknowledged that everything came from God who filled her with His grace.

Although the dogma of the assumption was only defined by Pope Pius XII on November 1, 1950, this has been part of the sacred tradition of the Church since its earliest centuries.
.
We believe that "the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory" (Munificentissimus Deus, 44). It is a logical consequence of her immaculate conception: having been preserved from the stain of original sin, the flesh of Mary could not suffer corruption.
.
The twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation gives us the image of the Virgin Mary in heavenly splendor and glory. She was described as a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and with a crown of twelve stars.
.
Let us constantly ask for her intercession so that like her, we may be welcomed to the company of the saints once our earthly journey comes to a close.
.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

Like the apostle Peter, there are moments in our life when fear and anxiety overcome us. When we forget that God's love is more powerful than our problems and worries, Jesus asks us: "Why do you doubt?" In these trying moments, we can imitate the prayer of that man in the Scriptures, whose son was healed by Jesus: "Lord, I do believe, but help my unbelief!"

Ngayong taon ay ipinagdiriwang natin ang ika-75 anibersaryo ng pagkakatatag ng Parokya ng Santisimo Rosario sa Unibersidad ng Santo Tomas (UST). Taong 1942 nang ipinag-utos ni Arsobispo Michael O'Doherty ng Maynila ang pagtatatag ng parokya, sa kasagsagan ng ikalawang digmaang pandaigdig.
.
Ipinangalan ang bagong parokya sa karangalan ng patron ng mga Dominikano, ang Nuestra Señora del Santisimo Rosario. Matatandaang ang UST ay una ring ipinangalan sa Birhen ng Rosario bago ito pinangalanang Colegio de Santo Tomas.
.
Sa panahong ito ay pansamantala ring inilagak sa simbahan ang mapaghimalang imahen ng La Naval de Manila matapos itong mailigtas mula sa pambobomba ng mga kaaway sa Intramuros. Tuluyang nawasak ang dating simbahan ng Santo Domingo sa Maynila.
.
Nang matapos ang digmaan, inilipat ang birhen ng La Naval sa kanyang bagong tahanan sa Lungsod Quezon. Muling ibinalik sa altar mayor ang Nuesta Señora del Santisimo Rosario at nanatili ito hanggang ipatupad ang mga reporma ng ikalawang konseho ekumeniko ng Vaticano.
.
Sa patnubay ng Ina ng Santo Rosario at sa gabay ng mga paring Dominiko sa nakalipas na 75 taon, yumabong ang buhay parokya sa unibersidad at sa paligid nito. Tunay na biyaya ng Diyos na ang pagdiriwang ni Jubileo ng parokya ay mataon sa pagdiriwang ng Taon ng Parokya o "Year of the Parish."
.
Inaanyayahan namin ang lahat na makiisa at makisaya sa pagdiriwang ng ika-75 anibersaryo ng Parokya ng Santisimo Rosario ngayong Setyembre.

...Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw how strong the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught Peter, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" After they got into the boat, the wind died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, "Truly, you are the Son of God."
