O Root of Jesse...


O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum,
quem Gentes deprecabuntur:
veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.


O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples;
before you kings will shut their mouths,
to you the nations will make their prayer:
Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.

O Adonai...


O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel,
qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti,
et ei in Sina legem dedisti:
veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.


O Adonai, and leader of the House of Israel,
who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm.

O Wisdom...

O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti,
attingens a fine usque ad finem,
fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia:
veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.


O Wisdom, coming forth from the mouth of the Most High,
reaching from one end to the other,
mightily and sweetly ordering all things:
Come and teach us the way of prudence.

Pope's visit to Juarez will include cross-border Mass

According to Chicago's Catholic Extention society, Pope Francis plans to celebrate an afternoon Mass near the U.S.-Mexico border during his visit to Ciudad Juárez in Mexico on Feb. 17. The 4 p.m. Mass will be celebrated at the Benito Juárez Stadium "right next to the border." The Mass will be the culmination of the pope's visit to Mexico. Also today the Diocese of El Paso, Texas announced that the Mass will include a cross-border component, adding that those details are still being worked out.

According to a statement at its website: "The Diocese of El Paso is working with local, state and federal agencies to celebrate the Papal Mass at the U.S/Mexico border, specifically along Loop 375/César Chávez Highway within eyesight of the Papal Mass. Because of the anticipated crowds for this Mass, remote locations are also under consideration."

Parishes in the two U.S. dioceses across the Rio Grande river from Juárez—El Paso and Las Cruces, New Mexico—will also receive tickets for their parishioners to attend the Mass in Juárez. Pope Francis’ plan to celebrate Mass at the border is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from both the U.S. and Mexico. The Catholic Extention release suggests it "will be a significant milestone of the trip’s itinerary."

Today's update on the pope's itinerary during his Mexico visit still leaves open the question of whether or not the pope's proximity to the border suggests that he will make a personal visit to the border fence at Juarez. A spokesperson for Catholic Extention would only say, "These details are in the discussion phase. We have no specific information that we can confirm as of now."

@_FloridaMan busted for driving 110mph without clothes

A Florida man is facing charges after police allegedly clocked him driving at 110 mph -- while naked.

A Florida Highway Patrol officer arrested 33-year-old Noe De Jesus on Saturday afternoon after pulling over a speeding Cadillac heading toward Naples, Florida, on a stretch called Alligator Alley, Fox13.com reports.

Officers pull over excessive speeders all the time, but it's safe to assume the trooper will never forget his encounter with De Jesus.

When the car stopped, the officer noticed the driver wasn't wearing a shirt and had an open 12-pack of Corona next to him.

Bud Weisser arrested at Budweiser brewery

St. Louis police say the Budweiser brewery got an unwelcome visit from a man with a memorable name.

Nineteen-year-old Bud Weisser was cited for trespassing and resisting arrest. Police say he was found in a secured area of the brewery Thursday evening.

Police say in a news release that officers were called after security officers told Weisser to leave and he resisted arrest.

Weisser was taken into police custody, then issued summonses for trespassing and resisting arrest.


Man who smuggled turtles in pants pleads guilty

A Canadian man caught at a border crossing with 51 turtles taped to his body pleaded guilty Tuesday to smuggling or attempting to smuggle more than 1,000 of the reptiles out of southeastern Michigan.

Kai Xu, 27, would order turtles online and travel to the U.S. to pick them up and then ship them to China or return with them to Ontario, Canada. He pleaded guilty to six crimes in federal court in Ann Arbor and faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

It’s illegal to export wildlife from the U.S. without a permit from the government.

Xu “regularly deals in turtle shipments worth $30,000, $80,000 or $125,000,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said in a court filing. “In China, the turtles he smuggles are worth two to three times the amount he pays here.”


Indiana man arrested for stealing braaaaaaaaains

An Indiana man has been convicted of stealing human brains from a former hospital for the insane before selling them on eBay. Reuters reports that David Charles, aged 23, broke into the Indiana Medical History Museum on multiple occasions to steal jars of brains, before selling them online.

Charles was caught after leaving a bloody fingerprint on a piece of paper at the museum. When police searched his home they recovered 80 jars of human tissue, according to court documents, although it's worth pointing out these weren't all brains. Other items Charles stole from the museum included a baby scale, an EKG machine, and 10 medical scopes.

As there's no specific criminal charge for the theft and sale of brain matter, Charles was found guilty instead of six counts of receiving stolen property and burglary and was sentenced to a year of home detention.

If you're wondering how much a brain goes for on eBay nowadays, Charles was selling them at six jars for $600 dollars, although it's not clear whether there was a discount for bulk purchasing.


Fan ejected from football game sends police 20 dozen coconut doughnuts in protest

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department received a strange, anonymous delivery of 20 dozen coconut doughnuts on Monday, the department posted on Facebook.

"We were confused. Nobody likes coconut donuts," public information officer Marc Lovicott wrote.

Two-hundred-forty doughnuts — every one of them covered in coconut — raised suspicions among officers, Lovicott later told the Journal Sentinel. "It was bizarre. Was it an apology? Was someone trying to get back at us with the joke about cops and donuts?"

Police quizzed the delivery driver from People's Bakery, who told them the doughnuts came directly from the bakery and that the bakery even had to order extra coconut to fill the order.
