After nearly a quarter of a century in the Roman Curia, Germany's Cardinal Paul Augustin Mayer, O.S.B. now lives out his autumn years in Rome

     We continue with this special series introducing you to the Princes of the Church. Our eighty-first red-hat we feature, in alphabetical order is Cardinal Paul Augustin Mayer, O.S.B. , the retired Benedictine prelate who headed the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei" before resigning at the age of eighty. Now 88, this German native is enjoying retirement in Vatican City. He was elevated to the cardinalate by Pope John Paul II at the Consistory of May 25, 1985.

81.   Cardinal Paul Augustin Mayer, O.S.B.


"I solemnly tell you the Warning and Miracle foretold shall come to you. But it shall come when you least expect it! Therefore, understand My Words. If you are filled with My Light, My Life and seek My Will above all else, interiorly you shall know the approach of these events so you may prepare the children of My Heart who are not prepared."

      Those definitive words above come from Our Lord in Message #609 on Holy Thursday on April 13, 1995 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart and followed by similar Messages on Good Friday and Holy Saturday during the Easter Triduum in which Jesus reminds us He is the only Hope and we need to place all our trust in Him and be obedient to His Holy Church and be willing to walk our Calvary in order to share in the Resurrection.

Events this weekend in Church History

      Sunday we commemorate the death nineteen hundred and thirty-two years ago of the Apostle Saint Peter who was crucified upside down on August 1, 67 A.D. It is the date of consensus from most historians of the early Church. He chose to be crucified upside down after being thrown into prison in chains in Rome. His rationale was that he was not worthy to die in the same manner as his Master. Many believe he was crucified on Vatican Hill in which his blood became the foundation for the Church to which he was appointed the first Pope by Our Lord For other events throughout the centuries that are memorable in Church history this weekend, click on MILLENNIUM MILESTONES AND MEMORIES
