It's about time we expose the lies being spewed by Planned Parenthood for they have anything but the welfare of family in their warped and evil minds
Abortion is Murder
  Today Dr. Frank Joseph pulls no punches in telling it like it truly is. Planned Parenthood and other pro-choice pro-abort organizations seem to have a cover-up of their own, which fits comfortably into the on-going culture of death society in which we live. "For what does it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul?" Today, Dr. Joseph answers Planned Parenthood's lies by responding to a blatant falsehood published by the president of the San Diego/Riverside County Planned Parenthood organization. Dr. Frank exposes the fraud PP is and shows how they twist words to avoid the truth...even though they know in their hearts - Abortion is Murder! For his column Planned Parenthood definitely has a plan and it's not to promote parenthood! , see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Francisco's spirituality was no more or no less than Jacinta's or Lucia's for each is called to serve God in different ways

   We are delighted to work with Father Robert Fox in bringing you this special series on the Fatima shepherd children Jacinta and Francisco Marto who will be beatified on May 13th this year by His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Throughout May we will be bringing you his articles on the two Fatima shepherds leading up to their beatification and after that, more articles on the Church in Russia since it is so pertinent to Fatima and the fact we are now publishing in Russian. Our Lady asked for the conversion of Russia and we are humbled in obediently publishing his words in Russian as well as bringing you his articles that appeared in the April-June issue of the full-color magazine which Fr. Fox edits and publishes, Immaculate Heart Messenger. To find out more, go to Father Fox's bio Today he completes his insightful article on Jacinta's older brother Francisco. For the second part of his column on The Spirituality of Blessed Francisco , see THE FAITH OF THE FATIMA SHEPHERDS

Events that happened this weekend in Church History

  On this date 715 years ago Philip IV was elevated to the throne of France in 1285. Receiving the moniker "Philip the Fair," he was anything but fair with the Church and was endlessly in and out of the graces of the Popes during his regime, stemming from his toe-to-toe battle of words and counter excommunications with Pope Boniface VIII and ending with the papacy being taken into exile in Avignon for over 70 years.

Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenLook for the good in others and you'll feel better about your own soul
   They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".
    "By finding black spots in others, they believe they distract attention from their own miserable state. The good conscience, on the contrary, finds good in others even when there is some discontent with self."

The Gospa's message for April April 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message
NOTE: We respectfully recognize and accept the final authority regarding apparitions, locutions and prophecies presently being reported around the world rests with the Holy See of Rome and the Magisterium of Holy Mother Church to whose judjment we humbly and obediently submit.

"Dear children! Also today I call you to conversion. You are concerned too much about material things and little about spiritual ones. Open your hearts and start again to work more on your personal conversion. Decide everyday to dedicate time to God and to prayer until prayer becomes a joyful meeting with God for you. Only in this way will your life have meaning and with joy you will contemplate eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call."
