The metaphysical wars of jabberwocky within the mystique of Star Wars cannot be defended when it comes to the First Commandment for to know God is to love and respect Him

      In his column today, Pat Ludwa takes on the Gargans, the Battle Droids, Ewoks, emperor's forces and the Lucas lumenaries in asserting that there is only One Force and it isn't something dreamed up in a space yarn but rather documented in Sacred Scripture for all galaxies. The galaxies of the Star Wars legends haven't got a clue as to who is truly in charge as Pat points out that to know of God is not enough, we must truly know and love Him.

May the Farce be with you

"Thou art a priest forever according to the Order of Melchisedech." The problem is priests don't live forever and they are dying off at an alarming rate.

      We continue our series on Prayer, something that is so misunderstood and complicated and really is so simple for it is merely "talking with God." We focus on the heart of prayer life - our priests who are so precious to us, especially in the necessity of celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in order that we might have Jesus, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity available to us. Without these consecrated priest-sons, the tabernacles are empty.

Time to seek Mercy

"...many are called, but few are chosen"

Matthew 22:14

The disappointments of trusting in man

      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, one of the ways this late luminary 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".

"Instead of this being a time of disaster, it is rather a period of humiliation. We are being left to ourselves, to our own devices, to our own conceits. Day by day we are learning that scriptural truth: 'Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who depend upon horses; who put their trust in chariots because of their number, and in horsemen because of their combined power, but look not to the Holy One of Israel nor seek the Lord' (Isaiah 31:1)."

"Let your prayer for peace come from your heart, so that in these end times you may help to renew Holy Mother Church in the time of great heresy and schism."

      Those words from the Blessed Virgin Mary were conveyed on the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi on October 4, 1994 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart wherein Our Lady asked all her little ones to emulate the simplicity and obedience of Francis who strove for peace in all things, but never compromise. She calls for all her little ones to seek peace from our hearts and follows this up two days later with the message of Refuge in her Divine Son's Sacred Heart and her own Immaculate Heart.

May 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

    Dear children! Also today I call you to convert and to more firmly believe in God. Children, you seek peace and pray in different ways, but you have not yet given your hearts to God for Him to fill them with His love. So, I am with you to teach you and to bring you closer to the love of God. If you love God above all else, it will be easy for you to pray and to open your hearts to Him. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"Therefore, if thou art offering thy gift at the altar, and there remembers that thy brother has anything against thee, leave thy gift before the altar and go first to be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift."
