If Ted Turner keeps up his harangues against the Pope and Catholics, he could get pre-empted and canceled by the great Programmer on high

      In this weekend's editorial we take on the the "Time Man of the Year" in 1991 - the"Mouth of the South" - better known as Ted Turner, billionaire media mogul who has angered the Catholic community globally not just for his snide insults of the "Time Man of the Year" in 1994 - the Holy Father - earlier this week, but his whole scheming political agenda that has at its core the elimination of three fifths of the world population through forced contraception, regulated sterilization programs and abortion in an effort to force the world's population down to less than half of its current count. We point out the great dangers of this liberal loon and compare him to similar despots who had in mind the same kind of domination which goes against everything God intended. For this weekend's commentary Ted Turner will never be able to muscle or buy his way into Heaven! , click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

Things aren't always what they seem when one is touched by an angel

      In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto continues her story from last week on appearances not always being what they might seem through a touching vignette of two angelic visitors who left a blessing only God could give.

We need to be the beast of burden for Christ

Meditative Lessons on the Sorrowful Mysteries

      There's a saying attributed to Father Flanagan of Boys Town fame that he encountered a young man hoisting another young man on his back carrying him for quite a while. When confronted, he remarked to Fr. Flanagan, "He ain't heavy, he's my brother!" That's why the Blessed Mother wants us to consider being the "beast of burden" to help carry her Divine Son's message of Peace, Love, Mercy and Reparation to all God's children. That is the essence of Mary's meditation today in Lesson 1: JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM For part three, click on "IT IS CONSUMMATED!"

SIMPLY SHEEN: Great graces can come in small packages

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind. Today we begin famous quotes from this late luminary who did 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". On Fridays we bring you more than just a quote; we bring you a brief homily on a subject that is pertinent today. That subject today is the difference between black and white morals. Today the demarcation line has been badly blurred and we overlook the little things that add up in God's eyes. For words of wisdom from Bishop Sheen, click on Simply Sheen.

It's the little things that count!

January 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

    Dear children! I again invite you to prayer. You have no excuse to work more because nature still lies in deep sleep. Open yourselves in prayer. Renew prayer in your families. Put Holy Scripture in a visible place in your families, read it, reflect on it and learn how God loves His people. His love shows itself also in present times because He sends me to call you upon the path of salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.
