What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way to be made aware of a Web site's latest news or feature updates. A Web site publisher creates an RSS feed that lists article headlines, summaries and links back to the latest full-text articles on its site. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, every time a new entry or article is published to the Web site, a link to the entry or article is added to your reader.

How do I use RSS?
Some RSS readers are stand-alone software applications that must be downloaded. Others are offered by Web sites that you can log into (like Google Reader, Bloglines, My MSN or My Yahoo!). All of them allow you to find and subscribe to various RSS feeds. Each offers different options. There are many different RSS readers available. Google has a good directory listing of all kinds.

After you have subscribed to an RSS feed, headlines will begin to "flow" to your reader. When you see a headline that interests you, just click it to view the full article.

Terms of Use
RSS from St. Anthony Messenger Press is for non-for-profit, non-commercial use only. Commercial enterprises may contact us here for more information.


John Joseph of the Cross: Self-denial is never an end in itself but is only a help toward greater charity—as the life of St. John Joseph shows. 
<p>John Joseph was very ascetic even as a young man. At 16 he joined the Franciscans in Naples; he was the first Italian to follow the reform movement of St. Peter Alcantara. John Joseph’s reputation for holiness prompted his superiors to put him in charge of establishing a new friary even before he was ordained. </p><p>Obedience moved John Joseph to accept appointments as novice master, guardian and, finally, provincial. His years of mortification enabled him to offer these services to the friars with great charity. As guardian he was not above working in the kitchen or carrying the wood and water needed by the friars. </p><p>When his term as provincial expired, John Joseph dedicated himself to hearing confessions and practicing mortification, two concerns contrary to the spirit of the dawning Age of Enlightenment. John Joseph was canonized in 1839.</p> American Catholic Blog Humility is possible only for the free. Those who are secure in the Father’s love, have no need of pomp and circumstance or people fawning on them. They know who they are, where they’ve come from, and where they are going. Not taking themselves too seriously, they can laugh at themselves. The proud cannot.
