The scariest part of Halloween is that people don't recognize satan controls it!

Sister Mary Lucy Astuto   In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto exhorts the reader to be very careful how you treat the day of trick or treat activities. Candy is dandy, but the face of evil can be masked behind the hidden agenda of satan preying on unsuspecting victims who don't see the path that leads to hell strewn with sweets and bone-tingling chills. In today's society the norm is to open the door wide for lucifer and not only let him right in, but celebrate his entrance by enhancing him at Halloween, even though most people still will stubbornly claim he doesn't exist. Like a deadly computer virus he gets in and destroys souls from the inside out. For her column, entitled Halloween has turned into Helloween! see GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER

    The DAILY WORD
    Taken from the Gospel for Friday's Mass

    "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, 'A shower is coming,' and so it comes to pass. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be a scorching heat,' and so it comes to pass. You hypocrites! you know how to judge the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you do not judge this time? But why even of yourselves do you not judge what is right? "

    Luke 12: 54-57

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Honorius I    Today is the 1,375th anniversary of the election of Pope Honorius I as the 60th successor of Peter in 625. He would rule for thirteen years. He established the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on September 14 and, like our present Holy Father, had a great zeal for the missions, sending many priests and monks into foreign lands to evangelize the Faith in fulfillment of Mark 16: 15. Honorius also resolved the long standing controversy over the Three Chapters which first rose its ugly head in the mid sixth century over the controversy under the Eastern Emperor Justinian which resulted in various heresies and the condemnation of them at the Council of Chalcedon. Yet the schism of Aquilea kept it alive until he put an end to it. Pope Honorius, who had been elected two days after the death of Pope Boniface V, died on October 12, 638.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenHints for 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".

      "Here is a psychological suggestion for acquiring peace of soul. Never brag; never talk about yourself; never rush to first seats at table or in a theater; never use people for your own advantage; never lord it over others as if you were better than they. These are but popular ways of expressing the virtue of humility, which does consist so much in humbling ourselves before others as it does in recognizing our own littleness in comparison to what we ought to be."
