It is something that could happen only once in a blue moon...

Will the bells toll in our hearts soon?

      In this weekend's editorial we tie in the devotion of Divine Mercy with the ultimate Mercy God is going to bestow on His children soon - the Warning promised at Garabandal when all will know - through the suspension of time in a mystical, supernatural way - the state of each's soul as God sees us. Why do we bring this up this week? Because we could very well be a month or less away from the Warning and Miracle promised if we put together the pieces of the puzzle imparted to the visionaries. For the commentary, The Warning could be our final warning!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

The Warning could be our final warning!

Sr. Lucy's mother is about to bloom forth as the newest member of Heaven's court through prayer and His Divine Mercy

      In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto bares her heart and soul in sharing one of the most important people in her life, her dear earthly mother who is near death's door at 92. It is through Jesus' Divine Mercy that Sister's mother was given a loving husband and five children, one who became a priest and Sister Mary Lucy who has become the kind of nun all of us long for - a loyal, nun who remains loyal to all the Church teaches and is proud to wear the habit - the true garment for a bride of Christ. It is most appropriate that she writes about this during the week dedicated to the Divine Mercy Novena and we ask all to light a votive candle and help her in calling down Divine Mercy for her dear mother who has suffered so and richly deserves the rewards that await her soon in Heavenly bliss. For Sister's column, My mother is dying, click on GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER


A Mother's Mercy

Meditative Lessons on the Glorious Mysteries

      In the second part of Chapter 8, A LESSON IN FORGIVENESS we see the total compassion the Blessed Mother felt for all, even the man who betrayed her Divine Son as she truly prays that the Father will have mercy on the soul of the Iscariot. It is a glimpse into how loving a mother she is and why God has chosen her to convey His Will in these dire times. These meditative lessons, imparted by Our Lady to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart after Pentecost 1993, are meant to inspire and prompt a greater understanding of the Glorious Mysteries.

SIMPLY SHEEN: War begins at home just as peace does

      This week Bishop Fulton J. Sheen pinpoints why we have so many wars and peace is so hard to achieve. Man must look in the mirror for it begins with the individual within. If one has peace in the heart and practices it, then one can better achieve it exteriorily. Multiply that by every citizen and then, only then, can piece be achieved. Though the good bishop is no longer with us, he was being prophetic in regards the current situation in the Balkans and his syllogism to obtaining peace is the only thing that makes sense. For words of wisdom from Bishop Sheen, click on Simply Sheen.

Peace can only be achieved when we cease the wars within
