A Eucharistic Miracle confirms the Apparitions at Betania

      In today's installment on the Apparitions at Betania, Venezuela, we focus on the Eucharistic Miracle that occurred during Holy Mass on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in 1991 when visionary Maria Esperanza di Bianchini's spiritual director Father Otty Ossa Aristizabal consecrated the Host and at the Agnus Dei the Eucharist began to bleed in sight of thousands in attendance at the outdoor Mass on the farm in Betania. It was a definitive sign and affirmation of the proclamation made by Bishop Pio Ricardo Bello four years prior that the Apparitions were worthy of belief on the Diocesan level.

Take Refuge in My Immaculate Heart

Eucharistic Miracle Confirms Apparitions

"I gather your tears together with my own as a perfect prayer to my Divine Son."

      The Blessed Virgin Mary conveys the message to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart that 1993 was the "Year of Tears." She comforts all her children that the sorrows will intensify in the coming years and reminds all that this suffering can be a bouquet of roses if accepted lovingly and in the spirit of the Divine Will. In the following message Our Lady emphasizes that "Faith is the Pathway to God." and that we need to keep our eyes and hearts on the road, else we will be sidetracked by the evil one who will stop at nothing to blind us and delay our journey toward Heaven.

On Veterans Day it is truly an honor to honor God and our country!

      Today we bring you two short vignettes on loyalty and remembering. The first is in honor of Veterans Day and our country, the second is in honor of Remembrance Day in Canada today but in respect to the fact that we must remember Jesus is with us at all times but we so often forget. The special letter brings that fact home and should get all to thinking more thoughtfully on keeping Him in mind, heart and soul more often. For the vignettes, Honor! and A Reminder letter from a very Special Friend less you forget!, click on A NOVEMBER CORNUCOPIA OF FOOD FOR THOUGHT APPETEASERS
      Today's food for thought celebrates two holidays, Veteran's Day in the United States, and Remembrance Day in Canada. The first is a patriotic ditty that shows the simplicity of patriotism; the second is a reminder to help us remember He is there at all times. It is we who pass up the opportunities. They were both submitted by EJB via e-mail and should really give everyone something to ponder during this month of Thanksgiving.


A Reminder letter from a very Special Friend less you forget!

Events Today in Church History

      On this date in 1215, Pope Innocent III opened the 12th Ecumenical Council. He was the sovereign pontiff who Saint Francis of Assisi asked to approve his order and who had the dream of the Church falling down all around him and recalled the Friar to give him approval.

October 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I call you to come closer to my Immaculate Heart. I call you to renew in your families the fervor of the first days when I called you to fasting, prayer and conversion. Little children, you accepted my messages with open hearts, although you did not know what prayer was. Today, I call you to open yourselves completely to me so that I may transform you and lead you to the heart of my Son Jesus, so that He can fill you with His love. Only in this way, little children, will you find true peace - the peace that only God gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
