In honor of the Jubilee of Families
We continue our special series on Conjugal Love:
    The Keys to Reestablishing the Sanctity of Life through the Charism of Conjugal Love
Cyndi CainMichael Cain   This weekend, in honor of the special Jubilee of Families which closes today in Rome, we continue our introduction of our new series that prayerfully will inspire married couples everywhere as well as touch engaged couples with the realization of the great gift the Sacrament of Matrimony is and the charisms available through the giving of oneself in heart, soul and body to each other in pure, holy Conjugal Love. It is the way God has always intended marital bliss should be. But, as we explain in our introduction, there can be no bliss, no union without Him. Christ has confirmed the necessity of this oneness, "...now they are no longer two, but one flesh" (Matthew 19: 6) as well as the Apostle Paul who entreated in Ephesians 5: 25-26, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church, and delivered Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, cleansing her in the bath of water by means of the word." This sensitive and enlightening series is co-written by Michael and Cyndi Cain, who share what the Holy Spirit has inspired them to write including intimate, chasteful revelations of their own lives that have helped elevate their Conjugal Love. The entire concept unlocks the keys to reestablishing the Sanctity of Life through the Charism of Conjugal Love and, one couple at a time, we can change the world and eradicate the culture of death. For the second part of the Introduction to this series today. From now on this series will be featured in each Saturday issue. For the second part of the Introduction of this series, see AT ONE WITH GOD

    Christ founded the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic ChurchPapal Arms of John Paul II The Church's cherished role in Salvation and why there is no salvation outside the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church is the theme of this fourth and final installment of the Jubilee Document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Dominus Jesus on the Unicity and Salvific Universality of Jesus Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Doctrine of the Faith    On September 5, the Vatican released the Jubilee Document that reaffirmed the Church Doctrine of "No Salvation Outside the Church." At a time when a one-world order is being formed and a body of 1,000 psuedo religious leaders met and voted overwhelmingly that all religions should be considered equal, the Church is standing up and reasserting that she truly is the One, True Church founded by Jesus Christ. It flies in the face of political correctness, but, in loyalty to Our Lord the Holy See responds to Peter's words in John, 6: 59-70, "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast words of everlasting life, and we have come to believe and to know that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God." Approved by Pope John Paul II, this declaration was released by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. Today we present the Fifth Chapter The Church: Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Christ and the Sixth Chapter The Church and the other religions in relation to Salvation and the Conclusion of this declaration. For this fourth and final part of DOMINUS JESUS, see THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS

Feast of Saint Teresa of Avila

       Graciously hear us, O God of our salvation, that as we rejoice in the festival of Thy holy Virgin Teresa, so we may be nourished with the food of her Heavenly teaching, and may increase in loving devotion toward Thee. Through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Taken from the Gospel for Sunday's Mass

"'One thing is lacking to the; go, sell whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; and come, follow Me.' But his face fell at the saying, and he went away sad, for he had great possessions. And Jesus looking around, said to His disciples, 'With what difficulty will they who have riches enter the kingdom of God!'"

Mark 10: 21-23

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Gregory XIII    Today is the 418th anniversary of the establishment of the new Gregorian Calendar which Pope Gregory XIII introduced in Italy and other Catholic countries of Europe. It was eventually adopted by many, many other countries where today it is the majority's choice for calendar. In order to make the transition from the old Julian Calendar to this new one, it was necessary for all to have ten days erased from the calendar. Therefore, when people fell asleep on the evening of October 4th, 1582, the next morning was October 15th. Talk about a long sleep! It's interesting to note we have a Gregorian Calendar and Gregorian Chant, but the latter was named after Pope Saint Gregory the Great nearly a millennium earlier.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenVirtue is the key to Truth

       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".

      "Notice how often today men in public life accuse one another of 'lying.' Why is it they never speak of truth? May it not be that they studied in the same school as Pilate and asked 'What is Truth?' (John 18: 38) and then turn their backs on it. It takes a heap of virtuous living for any one of us to discover Truth. "
