Pro-Life Prescriptions:

"If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life."

    Pope John Paul II


The AP photos above taken of George W. Bush on the left and Al Gore waving above clearly show God's choice for president of the United States through His wonders of nature that say more than any spinmeister could. The Culture of Life is blessed with a rainbow of graces. While stormclouds of doubt and despair loom for those who would push for the Culture of Death!

Catholics can make the difference!
Say "Yes" to Life!
      In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph reminds all Catholics that their vote is all about accountability. Accountability that counts not just with their conscience but, in the greater picture, with their Creator. The question is about creation - His creation of man. which modern man wants to snuff out through the selfish, horrific and evil sin of abortion. Dr. Frank points out what the Church says both in Sacred Scripture and Canon Law and shows, without a shadow of doubt how the line in the sand has been drawn. There definitely is a good candidate and a bad candidate and he does not hesitate to share with the readers who Catholics cannot vote for. They can't for the sake of their own souls, as well as the souls of countless unborns who might never get the chance to breathe life as we do today because of the selfish, narrow-minded votes of those who stubbornly or stupidly voted for a candidate who pledges to continue the culture of death. He clearly shows that it is no longer a matter of choice or party politics, but a matter of life and death! It is no longer a political issue, but a moral issue that we will be held accountable for before God. For Dr. Joseph's column The Opportunity of a Lifetime can also be the Opportunity of Eternity! , see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

In this Jubilee year many hearts have opened to me and the Church is being renewed in the Spirit. I rejoice with you and I thank God for this gift; and you, little children, I call to pray, pray, pray until prayer becomes a joy for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Taken from the Gospel for Wednesday's Mass

"But of this be assured, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would certainly have watched, and not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, because at an hour that you do not expect, the Son of Man is coming."

Luke 12: 39-40

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Saint Boniface VI    Today is the 1,375th anniversary of the death of Pope Saint Boniface V. This Neopolitan Pontiff was elected on December 23, 619. Because of the wars for the crown of Italy during those times, his pontificate was delayed one month shy of a year before he was allowed to succeed Pope Saint Deusdedit I. It was during his six-year pontificate that the prophet Mohammed began preaching his new religion of Islam. Also during this time Pope St. Boniface V established the privilege of sanctuary to protect those who sought refuge in a church. This recognition was upheld for the most part that the churches and monasteries were off-limits to invading parties, thus protecting victims from the vandals.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenWe must passionately guard our passions!

       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".

      "Listening to a political figure give a television report in the nation on a world crisis with somewhat the same passion that he would read off the price of cheese in Switzerland and Burma makes one wonder if there is any fire or enthusiasm left for great causes. Obviously, enthusiasm has something to do with passion. But that word generally evokes two kinds of extreme and wrong reactions: one view is that passion is something we ought to be ashamed of; the other is that passion is always right, and that if we do not give way to its demands, we hurt our personality."
