The notes are strained to the limit in the symphony of suffering a mother feels in the aftermath of a Rocky Mountain all-time low

      In this weekend's issue Cyndi Cain speaks from her heart on the terrible tragedy in Denver and shares a mother's emotions on what she feels and what to expect in the future, pointing to the causes and effects and clarifying the solution in true simplicity: Prayer.

A FEW WORDS FOR A GIGANTIC WOUND


It's been a rough ride for the Archbishop of Naples Cardinal Michele Giordano, but then peace has seldom been experienced in Naples over the years

     We continue with this new series that debuted the beginning of the year, bringing you on a regular basis three times a week the Princes of the Church. Our forty-seventh red-hat we feature, in alphabetical order is Cardinal Michele Giordano, Archbishop of Naples who received his red-hat in Pope John Paul II's Consistory of June 28, 1988.

47.   Cardinal Michele Giordano


"For every drop of Divine Mercy that is poured out and humbly received, the chastisements will be mitigated and the Justice shall come swiftly, allowing My Mother's Immaculate Heart to triumph sooner."

      Those words above come from Our Lord on the Feast of the Ascension on May 12, 1994 in which Jesus imparted a number of things to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in Message #492. He asks us all to be humble, little obedient children and calls on all to uphold His teachings through His Church. His words are prefaced in Message #491 with a special interior vision the Hidden Flower received in Puerto Rico for the people there in which a great storm will come but the island, especially the center of the island, will be spared. For Messages 491 and 492, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
