The Mystical Body of Christ comprises the millions of souls of aborted babies. Christ calls us to be responsible for the wellness of the whole Body of Christ, and many of us just aren't doing our part.

Christ commanded us to love one anotherThe unborn are also members of the Mystical Body of ChristThe Mystery of the Mystical Body of Christ flows from the Body and Blood of Our LordWe are all members of the Mystical Body of ChristWe need to work in harmony with the Communion of Saints
Together, as the Mystical Body of Christ, in communion with the Saints in Heaven, let us work to free the souls in Purgatory, and at the same time, to free this world from the clutches of the evil one, who smirks at each baby that is aborted, and winds his chain around those who provide abortion, and those who do nothing to stop it.

Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her eleventh installment, Cyndi Cain continues to share vignettes of her illumination of her soul and further mystical experience that prompt her to write in awakening in all how simple God has made it for us and how complicated we make it. She tells of how sad the Blessed Mother is at the terrible holocaust of today - The Holocaust of the Womb. Each aborted baby is cradled in her crown as another pearl for God, but each pearl has its price and that price must ultimately be paid by those who play God and determine that they can murder His innocent little ones. These innocents are also part of the Mystical Body of Christ - part of our family and we need to protect our family, pray and speak out against this terrible sin, whether the world likes it or not. We have a commitment to God and to His innocent little ones to defend them and defend the Sanctity of Life. For her column, The Holocaust of the Womb , see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING.

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Birth of Pope Paul VI    Today is the 103rd anniversary of the birth of Giovanni Montini in Brescia, Italy. This northern Italian would become, at the age of 66, the 262nd successor of Peter and take the name Pope Paul VI on June 21, 1963. The pontificate of this 262nd successor of Peter would last fifteen years during which he would reopen the Second Vatican Council on September 29, 1963 and convene it on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception in 1965. He was a calm, quiet and reverent man who held true to the traditions and teachings of the Church despite the rash of abuses that followed Vatican II when dissidents decided to do their own thing in spite of what the Council Fathers had decreed. He will forever be known for his rigid, but necessary encyclical Humanae Vitae on birth control which was strongly rejected by modern Catholics intent on picking and choosing what they wanted to obey. His cause is close to completion for beatification. For other time capsule events that happened Today in Church history, see MILLENNIUM MILESTONES AND MEMORIES

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenGod demands full restitution from all

       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".

      " We once received a plain, brown envelope in which there was stuffed $4,600 in bills, and to which was attached an anonymous note to the effect that the sender was making reparation for his dishonesty to an insurance company, the name and address of which was given. We sent the money to the insurance company and told them of the unjust claim that had been made against them, but the name of the one who had made the restitution remained unknown. Regardless of how much one may have taken, and regardless of how secretly it may have been done, and regardless of how one may have justified it in his own false conscience, the Divine words still stand: 'Believe Me, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.'"
