Eucharistic League of Priests founded by St. Julian Eymard

Wednesday we return to Ordinary Time along with the Feast of the Italian bishop Saint Eusebius of Vercelli and the holy priest Saint Julian Eymard. The latter was a French Marist who was so dedicated to the Most Blessed Sacrament that he founded a religious order of nuns whose sole purpose was to perpetually adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. He also founded the Eucharistic League for Priests and Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament.

Due to electrical problems, we lost our e-mail capabilities and are striving to reestablish our files so we can get into all the e-mails mounting up. Included in these are the news stories for the past few days that we normally bring you in this section. Because of this glitch we are also unable to bring you Dr. Frank Joseph's Pro-Life Prescriptions column normally in the Wednesday-Thursday issue. Hopefully it will be in Friday's issue. We apologize for this inconvenience and pray we'll be back up and running soon.

"Angels will go out and separate the wicked from among the just, and will cast them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." We all need to heed Christ's words in Matthew 13 as we point out in our CATHOLIC PewPOINT in rallying Catholics to not be intimidated by the political correctness of Abortion and Sodomy. These are sins before God. They're wrong and we must speak out strongly and loudly against the sin!

Death of St. Edith Stein

Thursday we commemorate the 58th anniversary of the death of Sister Theresa Benedicta of Jesus, better known as Saint Edith Stein, the Jewish woman who became a nun and, along with Saint Maximilian Mary Kolbe, gave her life in holy martyrdom at the horrific Nazi deathcamp in Poland known as Auschwitz in 1942. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 1, 1987 and eleven years later elevated to sainthood by His Holiness on October 11, 1998.

In this month of Our Lady let us help her in her battle to preserve life in all its stages

As we enter this glorious month in which we celebrate the two final Glorious Mysteries that center on Our Lady, we are reminded of her call to uphold life in all its stages. Just as she appeared to Blessed Juan Diego in 1531 at Guadalupe to stop human slaughter, so she pleads with her children today to end the slaughter of aborted souls through prayer and returning our country to her Immaculate Heart by voting for those who will uphold the Sanctity of Life.

Holy Father bids "De Colores" to Cursillo pilgrims in Italy for the Jubilee, encourages all to "live an integral Christian life, that doesn’t make compromises about truth" in his Sunday Angelus Address
       In his July 30th Sunday Angelus from his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo His Holiness Pope John Paul II acknowledged the contributions of the new evangelization for adults - the Cursillo movement, celebrating the Jubilee. He emphasized the charisms of the movement and that "the Christian message is proposed through times of intense spiritual experience, capable of making one rediscover the beauty of encountering Christ and of being Church, as well as the joy of fraternity and reciprocal service, permeating the whole of life with a Christian spirit. The Holy Father also extolled the virtues of the Russian Christian thinker Soloviev on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death. Finally the Pontiff called on Our Lady, "Seat of Wisdom" to protect and guide us by placing our total being and trust in her. For the entire text provided by ZENIT, see THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS


Wednesday and Thursday mark DAY 97 and 96 in the Countdown to Election Day 2000!

   Following our weekend premier of our new DEFEND LIFE section on Pro-Life, which we will carry through Election Day 2000 on November 7th, we continue with the latest information carrying stories that involve pro-life issues, under the heading of "PRO-LIFE-LINES." Most of these stories have been provided by Pro-Life Infonet along with ZENIT, CWN, NE and other sources. We refer you to our HOMEPORT ENTRY PAGE where you will find a typograph of a chalice, a chalice overflowing with the innocent blood of the aborted babies nearing 40 to 50 million. Enough is enough! The story and our purpose is outlined in this typograph and for more information and why we will not give up, see DEFEND LIFE
