Just as Christ was not revealed to many as God when He walked this earth, so also His Body and Blood - present in the Eucharist remains a sublime mystery, hidden in the bread and wine

     On the feast of one of the first women Doctors of the Church Saint Teresa of Jesus, the Holy Father issued his 13th encyclical on the foundations of faith and reason entitled Fides et Ratio. Today we continue with the third part of this lengthy and important encyclical in installments spread out over several issues. The third installment continues the first chapter The Revelation of God's Wisdom focusing on Revelation of Christ and the beautiful Mystery He left us in the Blessed Sacrament in "Reason before the Mystery" For those wanting to read the entire encyclical, go to Fides et Ratio For the third installment, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.


NEXT WEEK: CHAPTER II: CREDO UT INTELLEGAM: "Wisdom knows all and understands all." (Wis 9: 11)

Only the Roman Catholic Church has the Marks of the True Church

     In his weekly column Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. begins a short three part series on the Church and Vatican II and the fact that the Faith is still secure despite the deviations some have made within the Church, but the Church as a whole remains strong and steadfast and still possesses the four undeniable marks of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. In his first part Father points this out and delves into why there is so much confusion today, attributing it to those who are not truly part of the true Church but have forged their own agenda, much as have the multitude of churches who broke away over the centuries. One thing they all have in common as opposed to the Roman Catholic Church: They do not have the four marks of the Church!

Let us clutch to our FAITH and move on part one

"I desire the rays of my Immaculate Heart to shine forth into this diabolical darkness."

     Those words come from the Blessed Mother in message 260 imparted to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart at the beginning of Advent in 1992 regarding the preparation her children need to make in welcoming her Divine Son Jesus at His glorious Incarnation. In both messages 259 and 260 she asks all to pray the Rosary and to be obedient to her Son's True Church and to persevere in these times where all mankind will suffer great chastisements in some form or another. But if we give ourselves totally to Jesus and go before Him in the Blessed Sacrament, we will have nothing to fear regarding our souls. Click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

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.
