Events that happened during this Corpus Christi Weekend in Church History

  On Saturday and Sunday, we observe the nineteenth anniversary of the first Apparitions at Medjugore. The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to six Yugoslavian children in this remote, tiny village southwest of Mostar in what is today the southwestern part of Bosnia-Hercegovina. The children ranged from ten years old to seventeen. Today all are adults and five of them are married with families. Vicka Ivankovic, the oldest remains single and still lives in Medjugorje. On the Feast of Saint John the Baptist in 1981 Our Lady appeared but said nothing. The next day, Mary imparted her first words from Heaven: "I have come to tell the world that God exists, and that peace is necessary for the salvation of the world. In God is found true joy from which true peace flows. The Gospa, as she is known in Medjugorje, announced herself as "Kraljica Mira" which means "Queen of Peace." It is peace, conversion of heart, a return to God and His sacraments, prayer and sacrifice that the Mother of God has endeavored to convey to the millions who have made pilgrimages to her special Oasis of Peace over the past nineteen years. The fruits are undeniable as millions more have been touched by the messages and reformed their lives, heeding Our Lady's call.

For our Foreign editions, we still need translators!!!



    We have had a few translators who have volunteered their help, but our goal is to secure at least two translators for each language in order not to put a burden on one person but spread the workload out. We still need volunteer translators for Italian, Portuguese, German and Spanish as well as more help for Russian and French. Once we have translators in place in order to polish the text to offer the DAILY CATHOLIC in these languages as it should be represented, we will launch, at first, a weekly edition in each of those languages which will be called the "Best of the DAILY CATHOLIC" for the past week. It will include the top news stories, features and timely columns along with the liturgy, devotions, and Church history timetable for the coming week.
