The DAILY WORD
Acts 11: 19-26
Psalm 87: 1-7
John 10: 22-30
Taken from the Gospel for the Fourth Tuesday of Easter:
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me. And I give them everlasting life; and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. What My Father has given Me is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch anything out of the hand of My Father. I and the Father are one."
John 10: 27-30

While we are on pilgrimage we will be unable to update the ShipLogs each day.
Events that happened this weekend in Church History

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".
On this date 735 years ago in 1265 Saint Simon Stock passed on to his Heavenly reward in Bordeaux, France. He had been traveling to various monasteries throughout Europe in his duties as Superior General of the Order of Carmelites. This holy Carmelite priest from Kent, England was the one chosen by the Blessed Virgin Mary to give the world the Brown Scapular for eternal protection for all who wore her special shoulder garb and those promises still exist today for all to emulate and wear the beatiful shield of the Brown Scapular.

"Some seek professional advice regarding their confused mental state, and are told that they are suffering from an 'inferiority complex.' The truth of the matter is, nobody who is self-willed has an inferiority complex; he has a superiority complex. He is so full of conceit, pride and aggressive assertiveness that his hurt feelings may for the moment appear as inferiority. But he would not feel hurt if he did not have a diabolic pride, or superiority which would treat anyone who does not flatter him as Pontius Pilate treated Christ. Pilate washed his hands of Christ and had Him executed."
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."
