Saint Matthew

This week we continue with the Gospel of Saint Matthew during Ordinary Time. The evangelist focuses today and tomorrow on Christ's words in Chapter Five on love and to what measures we, as His followers, must go to fulfill all that He asks including adhering to the New Law of Talion and the need to love our enemies even though that may be difficult, it is what God asks.

Pat proves His Eminence was right: Celibacy isn't the problem!

Saint Juliana Falconieri

On Monday we commemorate the 659th anniversary of the death of Saint Juliana Falconieri, foundress of the Servite nuns. Juliana, a victim soul, was born in Florence in 1270 to a wealthy family and took care of her mother for many years. After her mother's death, Juliana gave her fiat to God, dedicating her life to serving the sick through joyfully living her vows. She had a great love for the Holy Eucharist.

Alan Keyes  ++  George W. Bush  = 

The Key to saving souls is through the savory fruits of prayer, the onion, and Alan Keyes
    In our editorial in this issue, we strive to offer suggestions for enhancing the steak by adding to the sizzle with answers to how we can make everything more palatable to God and His children. The key ingredient is the analogy of the onion, a mere bulbous plant that can sweeten or sour our souls, depending on how we employ it. If we use our resources correctly we can not only increase vocations throughout the Church, but forever end the culture of death in America by assuring their defeat with the moral influence and leadership of staunch pro-life candidate and solid Roman Catholic Alan Keyes as the running mate of George W. Bush that will help restore God to these United States. United we stand, divided we fall. It's time to unite. For the commentary, It's time to start cookin!, see, CATHOLIC PewPOINT
