Pro-Life Prescriptions:

How many fathom the fathoms of faithlessness in the Democratic Party? No matter what rhetoric Al Gore spews, if he persists in steering away from the Beacon of the Sanctity of Life, the SS. Culture-of-Death will sink in Titanic fashion to the depths of hell! How many really want to book passage on such a fateful voyage?

  In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph asks how one can promote family and children while strongly advocating death to children. He takes on the hypocrisy and lies of Democratic candidate Al Gore, showing how satan has taken over the party that once championed the rights and values of Catholics. Today it is a mere shell of itself, a hull overcome with the barnacles of greed, lust and selfishness that is sinking into the fathoms of sin at an alarming rate. Just as many of the worldly upper class passengers didn't realize until it was too late that the unsinkable Titanic was going down, so also those Catholics who cling to the Democratic ship need to grab their life preservers now and abandon ship as fast as possible. Cling to the life-saving rafts of grace gained by upholding the Sanctity of Life and vote out all men and women who promote the culture of death. Forget the other issues, they don't mean a 'hill of beans' when push comes to shove for that's what will happen to them when satan gives the final push and they'll realized they've been shoved to the depths of eternal damnation because of their own pride.

Holy See releases affirming document on "No Salvation Outside the Church"

        As was announced Friday, the Vatican released the 36-page document Dominus Jesus on Tuesday which reaffirms Church doctrine that many had assumed had been toned down to pacify the world today. But, in the spirit of Jesus Who would not compromise and said, "Will you also walk away?", the Church stands strong on a doctrine that will be questioned by many modernists and other faiths whose lineage cannot be traced back to Christ. It is intriguing that this was released the same week the Millennium Global Summit at the UN is meeting with the aim of equalization of everything, including religion. This really fouls up their agenda of the One World Order as once again the Church stands alone with the Way, the Truth and the Life. more

    Cardinal Ratzinger answers critics head-on with no-nonsense answers
    Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger    Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith explained at a Vatican News Conference Tuesday following the release of the document affirming "No Salvation Outside the Church" that there is a growing body of opinion suggesting that other religions can offer an important complement to the teachings of Christianity. This is an erroneous belief, he said, and his Congregation prepared the new statement to affirm "the full and definitive revelation of Christ." The cardinal pointed out that many people today view the Church's traditional claim to be the unique and universal means to salvation as "a bit of fundamentalism which is an attack on the modern spirit and a menace to toleration and liberty." Because of that attitude, he continued, many people see ecumenical dialogue as an end in itself. "Dialogue-- or rather the ideology of dialogue-- becomes a substitute for missionary activity and for the urgency of an appeal to conversion." more

Taken from the Gospel for Wednesday's Mass

"Now when it was day, He went out and departed into a deserrt place. And the crowds were seeking after Him, and they came to Him, and tried to detain Him, that He might not depart from them. But He said to them, 'To the other towns also I must proclaim the kingdom of God, for this is why I have been sent.' And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee."

Luke 4: 42-44

Events that happened Today in Church History

        Pope Benedict XV    Today is the 86th anniversary of the election of Cardinal Francis Della Chiesa, chosen to succeed Pope Saint Pius X as the 258th successor of Peter. He chose the name Pope Benedict XV and his pontificate would encompass the terrible World War I which had just broken out. He would die on January 22, 1922 of pneumonia. He is credited with increasing dramatically the number of countries that would have diplomatic relations with the Vatican and he especailly worked hard to reestablish an envoy with England which had gone so long without communications with the Church, all the way back to King Henry VIII. Benedict also took care of the concerns of those across the English Channel, beatifying Joan of Arc. For other events that happened this day in Church History,ee MILLENNIUM MILESTONES AND MEMORIES


Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenEureka! The well-spring of God is easy to find!

   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 difference between those who have found God in faith and those who are still seeking Him is like the difference between a wife, happy in the enjoyment of her husband's companionship, and a young girl wondering if she will ever find a husband, and perhaps trying to attract men by the wrong approach. Those who search for pleasure, fame and wealth are all seeking the Infinite, but the seekers are still on the outskirts of the Eternal City. Those with faith have penetrated to their real home within the Infinite and have found the "peace which the world cannot give." As one can see a figure far off and not yet recognize him as a long-lost friend, so one can sense the need of the Infinite and desire the endless ecstasy of love, but not yet know that it is God."
