TOP CATHOLIC OF THE CENTURY COUNTDOWN
Number 5

Blessed Sister Marie Faustina Kowalska

Humble, frail Polish nun became Our Lord's chosen Messenger of Divine Mercy and through her Divine Mercy in My Soul Diary has inspired and educated millions to devotion to God's Infinite Mercy

    This weekend we begin the countdown to number one, narrowing it down to the TOP FIVE CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY with the 5th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Blessed Sister Marie Faustina Kowalska, the Polish nun who is known as the "Apostle of Mercy" for her fiat to Jesus in receiving the lessons and devotion to Divine Mercy which are more needed today on the brink of the new millennium than ever before.

Are loyal Catholics being hung out to dry by the liberal liturgists?

    In today's editorial, we point out how the Church is seriously reconsidering returning to a more traditional liturgy because more and more the Holy See can see how loyal Catholics are being hung out to dry by liberal liturgists who are all wet when it comes to Catholic liturgical practices. For the hymns, liturgical practices and emphasis on the Liturgy of the Word over the Liturgy of the Eucharist are void of tradition and a Catholic identity. The Vatican has expressed concern that our liturgy has become too ordinary because Ordinary Time has become synonomous with mediocrity and liturgical practices with no rhyme or reason, and no melody to the hymns sung practically non-stop and off-key during the Mass. For the editorial, We've come a long way, baby; the wrong way! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

We've come a long way, baby; the wrong way!
