Events this weekend in Church History

      While many events in Church annals occurred over this third week in August, during this time we commemorate the deaths of eight Popes over the centuries, including the "Pope of the Eucharist" from early in this century - Pope Saint Pius X who died on August 21, 1914 after an eleven year pontificate which included making Holy Communion available to children who had reached the age of reason.

SIMPLY SHEEN: Without God's truths we are haunted!

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminarydid so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Superstition manifests itself not only in credulity, but also in servility. Scripture says the 'last times' will be characterized by a refusal to endure sound teaching."


July 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Also today I rejoice with you and I call you all to prayer with the heart. I call all of you, little children, to give thanks to God here with me for the graces which He gives to you through me. I desire for you to comprehend that I want to realize here, not only a place of prayer but also a meeting of hearts. I desire for my, Jesus' and your heart to become one heart of love and peace. That is why, little children, pray and rejoice over everything that God does here, despite that satan provokes quarrels and unrest. I am with you and I lead you all on the way of love. Thank you for having responded to my call.
