Will the Vicar of Christ's historic "Jubilee Journey" be all that it can be?

    In today's editorial, we continue our commentary on the whole mess over the Holy Land that hinders the way for the Pope to complete his historic "Jubilee Journey" in retracing the roots of our Christian heritage. But history has a way of repeating itself as we conjecture on this scenario and whether the timing is in accord with Sacred Scripture. We present the players and the stage being laid out in a theater of suspense and intrigue in the new millennium. For the editorial, In God's time and only His Time! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

In God's time and only His time!

Everything falls into perspective when we place God in the right perspective

   In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto shows us simple preparations during Advent that include short prayer time and spiritual reading. If we must read, why not read things that will inspire rather than things that pollute such as all the secular trash out there that we're exposed to on a regular basis. We'd be much better off by picking up the Bible and reading a few passages and praying on it, or the writings on the saints no matter how short, or teachings of the Church or anything else spiritual that will edify and inspire us. She points out how everything falls into perspective when we place God in the right perspective.

No price tag can be put on God's gift of creativity

    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".

"Perhaps one reason why so many of our economic and political projects miscarry is because they are in the hands of men with eyes so tightly glued to what they are doing that they never stop to question whether it should be done at all. Merely keeping busy, merely getting paid can never satisfy man's need for creative work. "

Finally the long-awaited books "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." and THE HIDDEN WAY are NOW available!

   With the messages completed, you can now order the book that contains ALL the messages. This much-anticipated 224-page book of ALL the messages to the world imparted to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart from the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a lasting gift that will inspire you in your faith, and all God asks of us. You can acquire your own handsome, coffee-table top copy of "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." containing all 632 messages or the THE HIDDEN WAY containing 100 inspirational Meditative Lessons from Our Lord and Our Lady on Church Doctrine by clicking on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." or THE HIDDEN WAY or both books at BOOKS
