   "My soul is restless, Lord, till it rests in Thee."    Saint Augustine

                    

Feast of the Transfiguration and Saint Dominic dominate early August


  This issue covers two special feasts - the Transfiguration of the Lord on Monday and Wednesday's Feast of Saint Dominic, founder of the Order of Preachers and receptionist of the Holy Rosary - the most powerful weapon we have been given from Heaven, especially for these times as Our Lady has reiterated ever since bestowing this bouquet of roses on the founder of the Dominicans. Also included are special prayers for these particular saints and key excerpts from the gospels. For all this plus profiles of these feasts and vignettes on the saints, see LITURGY OF THE SAINTS.


        

The heart is a conscious effort we cannot make excuses for!

    "Environmental influences only condition, but they do not cause character. Our Lord put His finger on the cause when He said: "From the heart come wicked thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, and blasphemy. These things are what make a person unclean" (Matthew 15: 19). Modern psychology emphasizes the importance of the subconscious, but the Divine Master stresses rather the conscious factor of the intellect and will, that is, our knowledge and our decisions. The combination of these two is sometimes called the heart, and from them comes our character, as from the tree comes its fruits.

Pope's Intentions for August

   The Pope's General Intention for August 2001 is Legislators and leaders whose decisions are guided by God. How timely considering the stone-walling by the American bishops in calling legislators and leaders to task and the impending decision by President George W. Bush on whether to sign the death warrant for America by allowing federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, or to do the right thing which the Pope urged him to do during his face to face meeting last week. The Holy Father's Missionary intention is Use of China's own great tradtion to enrich the spirituality of the Church in China. On this intention we must pray for China shows little signs of permitting religious freedom despite the rhetoric.

The Message, Meaning & Medals of Rue de Bac


  The Age of Marian Apparitions began in 1830 at Rue de Bac. Now this time of Our Lady's visits are coming to a close. Godincidentally her messages all tie in with the visions to Saint Catherine Laboure and the completion of the Medal of the Virgin of the Globe per Mary's request for a medal to be cast depicting her offering a golden globe to the Heavenly Father from all her children as the Advocate, Mediatrix and CoRedemptrix. For more on this, see Medal of the Virgin Most Powerful

Our Lady foretold of these times over a century and a half ago!


   Why was the Blessed Virgin Mary weeping so when she appeared to visionaries Maximim and Melanie on September 19, 1846? Read her words and you too will weep as you better understand 155 years later how Our Lady foretold of these times we are in when "Rome would lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist." Blessed Pope Pius IX realized this and declared, "Unless you do penance, you shall all perish." Both the Mother of God and previous Roman Pontiffs have warned us and yet we have not listened. We reap what we sow and, as Pope Pius XII said on the Centenary in 1946, "The Madonna in Tears came to abjure her children to enter resolutely the path of conversion to her Divine Son, and of reparation for so many sins that offend the August and Eternal Majesty." With sin having become the rule and conversion the exception, do you think the direction the Church has taken since Vatican II is the right path?

"In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph"


   Since Our Lady's Heart has not yet triumphed, the Fatima mission and message continues. Read the messages conveyed to the three visionaries Blessed Francisco and Blessed Jacinta and Sister Lucia. We will not make an opinion here as to the Third Message compared to the First and Second. We leave that to you as you read the contents of all. For these messages, see Messages of Fatima

Is Medjugorje the final piece of the puzzle?


  Since the Feast of Saint John the Baptist on June 24, 1981 the Mother of God is purported to be appearing to visionaries in the Bosnian village of Medjugorje. As with all private revelation not officially recognized yet by the Church, we respectfully recognize and accept the final authority regarding apparitions, locutions and prophecies presently being reported around the world rests with the Holy See of Rome and the perennial Magisterium of Holy Mother Church to whose judjment we humbly and obediently submit. To learn more about the messages and meaning of Medjugorje, see MEDJUGORJE AND MORE

The Last 200 Years: The Age of Marian Apparitions


   From Rue de Bac to Lourdes through Medjugorje and Betania, Our Lady has been pleading with her children. She has consistently affirmed Church doctrine, warning of dire consequences if we did not repent, convert our hearts, turn back to her Divine Son Jesus, do penance, and stay in the state of sanctifying grace through the sacraments.
