Christ asks us to uphold His teachingsOur Lady is sorrowful because of so many offenses against her Divine Son's teachings"'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. What is a Mother to do when her children disregard her Divine Son's words and murder His innocents? No wonder the Blessed Mother weeps.

Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her tenth 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 continues to share 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, A Mother's Tears and Fears , see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING.

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Cardinal Michele Giordano    Today is the 1,695th anniversary of the death of the holy martyr Saint Januarius. Today also, in Naples, Italy his blood, ever since the 13th century, miraculously liquifies four times a year. Today on his feast day, on the octave of his feast day a week later, on December 16th, and on the First Saturday of May every year this wondrous event takes place with the Bishop of the See, presently Cardinal Michele Giordano, Archbishop of Naples carrying the holy vial containing St. Januarius' liquified blood in procession.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenWhatever you do, you do it to Christ!

       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".

      " On the Last Day, Our Blessed Lord said that He will judge us by our attitude to hospitality: 'When did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and not care for You?' (Matthew 25: 44). Hospitality, therefore, not only has the duties of which we are aware, but also the more terrible awareness that it is Christ Who is the Stranger. In all our dealings, we are dealing with the Lord Himself, though we know it not. Maybe if we could see our wars aright, in between two trenches of the enemies, or between a plane in the sky and the target beneath, there is Christ's Body being shot full of holes. What men do to one another, they do to Him, whether the act be of kindness or bitterness. "
