    Christ founded the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic ChurchPapal Arms of John Paul II Introduction to the Jubilee Document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Dominus Jesus on the Unicity and Salvific Universality of Jesus Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Doctrine of the Faith    On September 5, the Vatican released the Jubilee Document that reaffirmed the Church Doctrine of "No Salvation Outside the Church." At a time when a one-world order is being formed and a body of 1,000 psuedo religious leaders met and voted overwhelmingly that all religions should be considered equal, the Church is standing up and reasserting that she truly is the One, True Church founded by Jesus Christ. It flies in the face of political correctness, but, in loyalty to Our Lord the Holy See responds to Peter's words in John, 6: 59-70, "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast words of everlasting life, and we have come to believe and to know that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God." Approved by Pope John Paul II, this declaration was released by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. Today we present the Introduction and the First Chapter, The Fullness and Definitiveness of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. For the first part of DOMINUS JESUS, see THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS

    Our Lady of RansomEvents that happened Today in Church History

       Today is the 783nd anniversary of the establishment of the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy, also called Our Lady of Ransom through the perseverance of Saint Peter Nolasco who founded a religious order for the specific purpose of ransoming Christian prisoners and slaves from the Saracens during the years of the Crusades. This title was also added to the Litany of Loreto and the order was placed under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary by St. Peter Nolasco.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenRestitution must be made sooner or later

       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 act of dishonesty disturbs the balance of justice and therefore, demands restitution. The old law of Moses on stealing was, 'If he is found guilty, he must make restitution, giving back in full all that he hoped to gain by his knavery, and a fifth part beside, to the owner whom he has wronged.' "
