RENEW 2000 dangles the lure of being legitimate, while beneath the surface the hook is connected to the dangerous Call To Action line. The result: hook, line and sinker!

      In his column today, Pat Ludwa expands on his piece from last week regarding the heretical Call To Action group by proving that the recent addition of RENEW 2000 is merely a front for the former. But in being the "front" they are trying to legitimize something that still remains the stinking carcass of a dead fish in this radical group's efforts to pollute the waters of Holy Mother Church.

Message to the Americas:
Take responsibility for your actions and your fellow man's as well - be your brother's keeper

      Following up a year after the Bishops of North, Central and South America, along with the Caribbean contingent, met for the month-long Synod of the Americas in Rome at the end of 1997, Pope John Paul II officially closed the Synod with his Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in America at Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Mexico City in January 1999. Because of its significance for all Americans, we bring you this important document in several installments over the next few months. For those wanting to read the entire encyclical or check footnotes, go to Ecclesia in America For the eighth installment on Chapter Two: Encountering Jesus Christ in America Today - The burden of external debt , click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

The burden of external debt

Will the Apostles believe such a wild tale?

Meditative Lessons on the Glorious Mysteries

      In Chapter 10, Faith Conquers Fear that apprehension had to be going through the thoughts of Mary Magdalen as she raced toward the place where the Apostles cowered in the upper room. She was eager to tell them, yet apprehensive, too, for who was she compared to these men who had followed her Master and been so close to Him? These are some of the things the Blessed Mother shares with us through the interior vision imparted to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart after Pentecost 1993. They are meant to inspire and prompt a greater understanding of the Glorious Mysteries. For part one, click on "MY LORD AND MY GOD!"

Meditative Lesson 10:


part one

      Dear Father, it is the eve of Corpus Christi. I have gone to the vigil Mass, and have so tried to love Him, knowing how miserable my love is. But how He waits for each of us, no matter how miserable our love, because it is He Who makes it perfect. Now our Holy Mother comes and bids me continue these Lessons. I do not fully understand why, nor do I ask, but our Heavenly Mother would like all of these put down and given to hr children. It is their simplicity, which she wants them to be aware of. How simple it is to know God, for He is Love, how little all of us love with Divine Love, how the evil one has confused 'love' with the human emotion. I have tested the voice and I begin.
"Mary Magdalene came, and announced to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord, and these things He said to me."
John 20: 18

March 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

    Dear children! I call you to prayer with the heart. In a special way, little children, I call you to pray for conversion of sinners, for those who pierce my heart and the heart of my Son Jesus with the sword of hatred and daily blasphemies. Let us pray, little children, for all those who do not desire to come to know the love of God, even though they are in the Church. Let us pray that they convert, so that the Church may resurrect in love. Only with love and prayer, little children, can you live this time which is given to you for conversion. Place God in the first place, then the risen Jesus will become your friend. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"Amen, amen, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you have seen signs, but because you have eaten of the loaves and have been filled. Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for that which endured unto life everlasting, which the Son of Man will give you."

John 6: 26-27
