Your Passport to the
          Because of the urgency of the internet in this high-tech society we want to be fresh with the most recent news on the Church today. Plus, we want to give our readers everything they need, but not all at once. With nearly ten million visits from around the world since we went on line on All Saints Day in 1997, we have discovered through extensive research, that by going daily we are indeed able to fulfill our readers needs while striving to provide even more in bringing souls closer to Jesus and His Blessed Mother Mary. We have shortened the contents in each issue to accommodate the busy schedule of browsers.

    Each day of the week during the Jubilee Year 2000 we feature:

  • NEWS & VIEWS of the Day - taken from the most well-respected and accurate international Catholic news sources and today's headlines. We will report events of the day from a Catholic perspective

  • LITURGY OF THE DAY - including links to the readings and commentaries of the day, vignettes on the saint or feast for that day and preparations for Daily Mass the following day

  • The MONTHLY MEDJUGORJE MESSAGE plus the essence of the messages Our Lady has been imparting for over 17 years at Medjugorje.

  • The DAILY WORD - words to live by and "fast food" for thought

  • PRAYERS & DEVOTION for the Day - it might just be a simple prayer or a novena but all prayers are vital

  • MILLENNIUM MILESTONE TIME CAPSULES Providing time capsule events that happened today which were pertinent in Church History.

    In addition, we are alternating features and columns each day to give the reader a well-rounded Catholic publication that keeps them up-to-date as well as informed on important issues that affect their Catholic faith. Thus, we put a week's worth of issues on-line every Thursday night to cover from Friday through the following Thursday. This way one can access an issue ahead of time, or if you miss one or two issues, easily backtrack to catch up. The following days of the week will carry these features, articles and columns:
