Christ asks us to uphold His teachingsCyndi shares her interior visions received on the Feast of the Queenship of Mary"'Amen, I say to you, as long as you did not do it for one of these least ones, you did not do it for Me.' And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life."       Matthew 25: 45-46

As members of the Mystical Body of Christ we are responsible for all, born and unborn   The Mystique of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass: the Body and Blood of Christ   A panda gets more attention than a human fetus

It is so sad that we don't realize how society has turned us from upholding the uncompromising truths Christ taught to cowering under the pressures of political correctness. In so doing we are losing so many hidden graces and lining the path to hell with glittering lies to ourselves as we place more value on animals than humans

Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her eighth installment, Cyndi Cain shares vignettes of her illumination of her soul and awakens in all how simple God has made it for us and how complicated we make it. She continues on her theme of what the greatest opportunity Catholics have as the bonding link in the Communion of Saints - the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Today she shares her experiences during a special Mass and Healing Ceremony at her parish on the Feast of the Queenship of Mary and how that, following her mystical experience at Lourdes, gave her even more to pray on and share with others as God directed her. She relates her thoughts on the scale of values society holds today where animals are held in higher esteem than an unborn child or a dying senior citizen. Our values and ethics are eschew, so much so that we fail to accept the graces and mercy God is so generously offering. For her column, Hidden Graces , see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING.

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Innocent VIII Pope Innocent VI    Today is the anniversaries of the death of one Innocent and the election of another Innocent. We are speaking of the 638th anniversary of the death of Pope Innocent VI, the 199th successor of Peter and one of the Avignon Popes who had a wall built around the city to defend it. Born in France, he was elected on December 30, 1352 while the Avignon Exile was still in effect. During his ten year pontificate he continued under the influence of the French king while fostering the arts and culture and restoring the Papal States through his "Secretary of State" Cardinal Albornoz of Spain. On this same date in 1484 Pope Innocent VIII was elected to the Papal Throne in Rome. The eight-year pontificate of this Pope from Genoa would be dedicated to pacifying the Catholic States who were bickering amongst themselves. It was Innocent who first encouraged Christopher Columbus to go for the dream in embarking on finding a western route to the Indies. He died on July 25, 1492 just months before Columbus would discover something far greater than both had anticipated - the New World.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenA friend is a needed commodity in life!

       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".

      "Every man rejoices twice when he has a partner in his joy. He who shares tears with us wipes them away. He divides them in two, and he who laughs with us makes the joy double. Two torches do not divide, but increase the flame. Tears are more quickly dried up when they run on a friend's cheek in furrows of compassion."
