The Lourdes Link between Heaven and earth is the mercy and love of Our Lady for all God's children. As a loving mother, Mary treats each soul individually and special.

Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her third installment on the Jubilee Journey of Joy for Jesus Pilgrimage this past May, Cyndi Cain shares her thoughts and inspirations in the aftermath of the baths and the seemingly agonizing time of waiting for the healing to transpire at one of the most holy and sacred shrines in the world where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a simple peasant girl Saint Bernadette Soubirous and confirmed that Our Lady was the Immaculate Conception, pronouncing to Bernadette, "Que Soy era Immaculada Councepcion", translated: "I am the Immaculate Conception." Cyndi allows the reader into her innnermost thoughts and prayers for others, especially those closest to her as healings of her husband and sons begin to take shape slowly but surely. For her column, entitled Healing by God's Timetable see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING



Appreciation of Love for Our Enemies
    Today we continue our series in the search to uncover the wonderful treasures of the Church contained in the great Deposit of Faith. We present the second of a two-part installment on Love of our Enemies as explained in My Catholic Faith for Jesus has instructed all that the best way to defeat our foes is through love as He especially charges in Matthew 5: 44; 6: 15; and John 13: 15 and to forgive our enemies for the wrongs they do, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" (Luke 23: 34). For part two in the 188th installment, see APPRECIATING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF OUR FAITH
