There is no speculation when it comes to Truth!

      In this weekend's editorial we extend on Bishop Fulton J. Sheen's words in SIMPLY SHEEN today in which the good bishop points out in the simplest of terms what truth is and how to attain it. His summation and ours makes it very evident that our modern leaders - from politicians like Bill Clinton to business tycoons Ted Turner haven't got a clue when it comes to recognizing and accepting the truth. Why is that? We answer it succinctly through its simplicity. For this weekend's commentary It's not politics, it's truth! It's that simple! , click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

It's not politics, it's truth! It's that simple!

Mortal Sin leads in only one direction! Hint: it's hot down there! Mighty hot

      In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto begins a series on Lent, zeroing in first and foremost on the most damaging cancer that can attack us; one that is not only fatal but immortally fatal: Mortal Sin. She laments how so few of our younger Catholics have been truly educated as to how serious Mortal Sin is and harkons back to what God has said, reminding all they are not something the Almighty suggests, but commands.

Remembering His Promise...

Meditative Lessons on the Sorrowful Mysteries

      It was a promise Jesus made repeatedly in Sacred Scripture - the hope for all eternity. Yet Judas Iscariot had other plans for his agenda was foreign to Christ's, foreign to the Will of God. In today's Meditative Lesson 3, we get an initial look into the heart and soul of Jesus as viewed interiorly by the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in the first part of WITH THE APOSTLES ON THE EVE OF PASSOVER as we continue these inspiring lessons on the Passion throughout Lent.

Meditative Lesson 3:

"Those whom thou gavest Me have I kept; and none of them is lost but the Son of perdition that the scripture may be fulfilled."

John 17: 12

SIMPLY SHEEN: "The truth shall make you free."

      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 search for truth, the forgotton ideal that has been so besmirched and disgarded in today's society. The good bishop points out that the only freedom is in having boundaries to curb our self-will and keep us focused on the Prize. For words of wisdom from Bishop Sheen, click on Simply Sheen.
