Beware of wolves in sheeps' clothing who would lead the flock away from the Good Shepherd! Being "Catholic" means adhering to all the Church teaches - no exceptions!
      In this issue we bring you gems from archived issues by Pat Ludwa. Today we present an excellent column that is very timely in light of the release early this month of the Vatican Document Dominus Jesus by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith and the Holy Father's "enforcer" of the teachings. Despite his and the Pope's dissident detractors, chief on the docket for the Holy See is assuring that Catholic theologians adhere to all the Church demands in order to teach our young the truth, free of confusion. Pat Ludwa dissects the clever cloak of deceit dissidents and liberals continue to cast over the gullible ones, the floundering sheep who haven't got a clue as to the fallacy of these wolves in sheeps' clothing. Pat exposes them for what they are. For his column What a Concept!!! see VIEW FROM THE PEW

    Taken from the Gospel for Monday's Mass

    "And when He was now not far rom the house, the centurion sent friends to say to Him, 'Lord, do not trouble Thyself, for I am not worthy that Thou shouldst come under my roof; this is why I did not think myself worthy to come to Thee. But say the word and my servant will be healed.'"

    Luke 6: 6-7

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Council of TrentPope Paul III    Today is the 456th anniversary of the Treaty of Crepy, the peace treaty signed by King Francois I of France and the German Holy Roman Emperor Charles V in 1544. The latter had been a thorn in the side of the Church, leading his Protestant troops against the Papal troops in a bloody chapter of Church history during the Reformation. The treaty allowed the Supreme Pontiff at that time, Pope Paul III to call a much needed Ecumenical Council to counter the Reformation. That Council would convene a year later high in the northern Italian Alps in a place called Trent, hence the landmark 19th Council also known as the Council of Trent. It would last 18 years through four Popes and stem the tide of revolt from the Church with its necessary counter reforms.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenGod wants us to get personal

       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".

      " The age of discovery is not yet over and the greatest discovery yet remains to be made by every individual, namely, there are other people in the world besides oneself. As a former Prince of Wales once said: 'Number Ten Downing Street can never be a substitute for the good neighbor;' neither can the Community Chest nor Social Welfare Agency. Immediate personal contact, courageous embracing of the worries and burdens involved in full personal and intimate relationships - these are the bloodstream of a healthy society. "
