The trail of the Vatican's involvement with those out to destroy the Church leads to unveiling the truth in order to rid the Church of the scoundrels
In this issue we continue the second part of a new column that will run in this section. It is by famed conspiracy uncoverer Sherman H. Skolnick who is the American Sherlock Holmes of our times. Because of the factual information he can provide and because it is important to unveil any corruption within the Church in order to restore her to the sacredness and holy aspirations established by Jesus Christ to Simon Peter in Matthew 16: 18-19, we bring Skolnick's findings to the reader with no apprehension, always relying on Our Lord's words in Matthew 16: 26, "For what does it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" When you read Skolnick's findings you'll see many gave and took much in selling their souls, often times hiding behind the Church for the Vatican Bank's tentacles reach out and greatly involve the causes and effects of modern history.

Beware! The State could be invading your privacy, especially if you're a Catholic Home Schooler!
In this issue we bring you a brief guest column by Gary L. Morella on an alarming trend that is more and more pervading society today. The omens are not good for it's all about invading the privacy and brainwashing students. It's a glimpse of George Orwell's 1984 and it's happening in Morella's home state of Pennsylvania where the governor is a strong pro-abort who claims to be Catholic. To know more about this pseudo Catholic named Tom Ridge who is opening the door wide for not only abortion, but homosexuality as well, see Herod's Hero: Tom Ridge.

The first Pope to actually live full time on Vatican Hill
Wednesday is the 721st commemoration of the death of Pope Nicholas III. He was the firts to reside permanently in the Vatican. Many are under the false impression that the Pope always resided at the Vatican, but in actuality until he was elected to succeed Pope John XXI on December 22, 1277. None of the 187 Sovereign Pontiffs before him lived at the Vatican. Many resided at the Lateran Palace and other places around Rome during the first thirteen centuries. It was Nicholas who fostered the beginning of the beautiful Vatican gardens. This 188th successor of Peter was instrumental in converting the Tartar kings through the missionaries he dispatched there. Though he lived nearly three years at the Vatican, he died in his villa in Soriano in the Cimino on August 22, 1280. The permanent residence of the Popes at the Vatican would be short-lived for 25 years later the Popes would move to Avignon in France where they remained another full century after Nicholas' was elevated to the papal throne.
