  • Pope John Paul II exhorts all to stay the course here on our earthly journey with our hearts held high, always focused toward our final objective of joining the Father in His Heavenly Mansion.
      "In My Father's House there are many mansions. Were it not so, I should have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again, and I will take you to Myself; that where I am, there you also may be. And where I go you know, and the way you know."
      (John 14: 2-4)

          This past Wednesday, in lieu of his normal Wednesday Papal Audience, His Holiness John Paul II gave an Angelus Address in honor of the Solemnity of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation throughout the universal Church. The Pope celebrated Holy Mass before a packed faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square and then delivered his Angelus, focusing on the importance of All Saints Day and the succeeding All Souls Day and the Blessed Virgin Mary's integral role in bringing us all closer to sanctity by leading us to her Divine Son and cited the 50th Anniversary of the glorious proclamation by Pope Pius XII of the Dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. He emphasized the importance of each to strive to emulate the saints during our journey here on earth, keeping always in sight our Heavenly goal where we can be transformed into true saints because of our holy effort in this life.

    PRAY! PRAY! PRAY!
      Today is Day 8 of the Countdown Novena to the Election! Your prayers are vital! We recommend at least a decade a day and a Chaplet of Divine Mercy. If you can say a Rosary a day in hopes of a miracle that America can return to God through this election, that's even better! It's between you and God. Remember, nothing is impossible with Him!

    Taken from the Gospel for Sunday's Mass

    "The first commandmant of all is, 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one God; and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind, and with thy whole strength.' This is the first commandment. And the second is like it, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Pius XIIHungarySoviet tanks invade Hungary in 1956Former Soviet Union    Today is the 44th anniversary of the release of the encyclical Datis nuperrime by Pope Pius XII in response to the ruthless invasion by the Soviet Army into Hungary where tanks rode right into the heart of Budapest in a takeover that breached all trust in Eastern Europe. His strong stance in his 36th encyclical gives consistent evidence that the 260th successor of Peter always stood firm against tyranny, including helping Jews and other victims during World War II, something he has been accused of not doing by those who have little credence but get all the publicity. Sadly these muckrakers of the good Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli have delayed his inevitable beatification because of their accusations which have been disproven time and again by Jewish historians and rabbis as well as Catholic scholars, the archives and secular sources as well.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenToo many politicians can't be trusted because they lack humility

       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".

      "Our modern world has produced a generation of rich politicians who talk love of the poor, but never prove it in action, and a brood of the poor whose hearts are filled with envy for the rich and covetousness of their money. The rich who are humble help rather than use the poor to pave their way to power."
