In honor of the Benedictine tradition and in cooperation with the Vatican Apostolic Library, the rebuilt monastery at Monte Cassino in Italy opened an exhibit of over 100 manuscript bibles, called the "Atlas" bibles on the Feast of Saint Benedict, founder of the Order that perpetuated the Word over the centuries.

In her column this issue, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto reminds us of the rampant virus that has deteriorated respect. One who throws verbal bricks at others is prey to having bricks thrown back at them. Respect dwindles when we don't respect the feelings of others and a bandaid won't work. Only love. If we truly love God, then we'll love our neighbor and respect both them, ourselves and, above all, Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.

How long will we tolerate allowing the media to mislead this unstable and sick society? It's definitely a case of the blind leading the blind!

   In this issue's commentary, we begin a series on "The Frustration Factor" listing various things in society that frustrate us and why. We begin and end with the liberal media who have taken to the game of Catholic-bashing with nary a shred of proof. Yet it's open season on the Church because she stands as the only obstacle to satan completely ruling the world. With all the frustration it can be overwhelming and we can take refuge in Our Lord's soothing words from Matthew 16: 18 "...and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" and His reassuring command in Matthew 28: 20, "...teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold I am with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world." We believe and therefore, we must teach all to observe what Jesus set down. To do less is to betray the Son of God. For the editorial,"The Frustration Factor" see CATHOLIC PewPOINT
