Making some sense out of the "madness" before the Heavenly eclipse!

    In today's editorial we catch up on a plethora of issues and strive to clarify some misconceptions some readers might have gleaned from Friday's editorial The Warning could be our final warning! and other stories that have appeared in the DAILY CATHOLIC. We reiterate that this was not our prediction, but a gathering of facts whose syllogism points to it. But there were a few of the pieces of the puzzle not in place and today we try to clarify those pieces and wonder if some of those pieces have already been put into place by the Almighty without our realization. For today's commentary entitled It's called common sense which isn't too common these days!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

It's called common sense which isn't too common these days!

Scandal slithers into the Vatican and coils in defiance with the election of Pope Alexander VI

      If things weren't bad enough during the reigns of Pope Innocent VIII or his predecessor Pope Sixtus IV they would really take a tailspin during the eleven year pontificate of Pope Alexander VI, the Borgia Pope who was accused of being a ruthless poltician and enforcer and discarded the moral laws of the Church in favor of a wanton life of lust and debauchery, not something one would associate with the successor of Peter. In the first of several installments on this pivotal pope, we examine the early years of Rodrigo de Borgia and how he rose to the cardinalate marked by nepotism and simony all the way to his election on August 11, 1492. For the one-hundredth installment titled Pope Alexander VI: The lust for power and prestige , click on THE HISTORY OF THE MASS AND HOLY MOTHER CHURCH.

Pope Alexander VI: The lust for power and prestige part one

"You are either for Me, totally abandoned to Me, your God, or, you are against Me. There is no middle road."

    Those words from Our Lord were imparted on Good Friday on April 1, 1994 in Message #476 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in which Jesus reminds us of the importance of the day and why He suffered and died for us and calls on us to stand up and be counted. He prefaces this with His Message on Monday of Holy Week with the same theme, urging all His children not to be deceived by those who would lead us astray.
