Gossip is not part of God's Will Talk is cheap especially when it entails things that offend Jesus, especially when conducted in His House. How do we silence those who would insist on gossip? By bending their ears to their hearts!

    Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her seventeenth installment, Cyndi Cain shares how many loyal Catholics, through their sincere focus on God in His Holy House, overlook the "social activities" of others in His House. But the time has come when these people who insist on gossipping, realize the error of their ways lest they compound the sin in God's House by luring others into sin as well. This can happen and often does in churches where the Blessed Sacrament is not housed in the main area. Because of that many coming to Holy Mass treat the church as a hall where the ground rules are the same as any other time in the hall. How many have wanted to go up to someone and tell them off, to shut them up, to ring their neck figuratively because of the distractions they make in deterring others from preparing silently in their hearts for Christ's coming Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Cyndi shares your frustration, but rather than lambasting them, rather than alienating, she advises not to join them but to gently prod them, invite them to share quiet time before the Blessed Sacrament. She illustrates how you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar by echoing Our Lord's words to love one another and Paul's advice to "be as cunning as serpents and guileless as doves" For her column, We all need to talk less, pray more, and begin to prod gently , see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING.

   The elections are over, but the battle for life is not. We cannot give up the fight. Please continue to pray for the Sanctity of Life and pray for those pro-abort candidates who were elected that they will have a conversion of heart and recognize the evil of their ways. Remember, nothing is impossible with God. We encourage you to go to the Pro-Life links below to keep up to date on the great battle between life and death - the Sanctity of Life vs. the culture of death led by pro-abort candidates and those who would advance murder, immorality, sodomy, perjury, etc.

Taken from the Gospel for Wednesday's Mass

"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. And he who does not carry his cross and follow Me, cannot be My disciple."

Luke 14: 26-27

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Saint Deusdedit I    Today is the 1,382nd anniversary of the death of Pope Saint Deusdedit I, the 68th successor of Peter who had been elected on October 10, 615. His three year pontificate was marked by the fact that he eschewed any semblance of papal protocol by truly living as a 'servant of the servants' treating lepers and the plague-stricken poor souls of Rome. St. Deusdedit was also the first to use lead for sealing documents and his seals are the oldest pontifical seals on record in the Vatican museum.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenOnly God can mold a Mountain out of our molehill of insignificance

       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".

      "In the face of Divine Wisdom, all that we have, or do, or know, is a gift of God, and is only an insignificant molehill compared to His Mountain of Knowledge. Well indeed then may those who enjoy any relative superiority ask with Paul: 'What do you have that you haven't received? And if you've received it, why do you boast as if it were yours alone?' (1 Corinthians 4: 7)."
