From today on the days begin to get shorter for we have passed the Summer Solstice as the countdown to Jubilee 2000 continues

      As we introduced yesterday, we are now in the "summer mode" with our "Summer of 99" issues in which we provide readers the opportunity to read articles they might have missed during the final retro summer of the millennium. From this day on the days begin to get shorter and, while we might have leisure time on our hands, it's a good time to take note of where we're going and pray as Jesus and His Blessed Mother have been asking over these past two millenniums.

Retroactive articles available from the mid eleventh century up to the early part of the sixteenth century

      This summer we present the installments from Blessed Pope Eugene III, the 167th successor of Peter in the mid twelfth century through Pope Leo X, the 217th in the Petrus line early in the sixteenth century. These are installments 46 through 106. We should soon have installments one through 45, which cover the first millennium, available to review on-line within a few weeks. We will resume our original series in September with installment 107 on Pope Hadrian VI. To read any of the sixty installments presently available in this long on-going series, click on the Archives of THE HISTORY OF THE MASS AND HOLY MOTHER CHURCH.


















"Cease being anxious about the future. Cease clamoring for more knowledge. Of what value would such knowledge be? Mankind has misused knowledge since the sin of Adam and Eve. Therefore, you must trust in God to infuse knowledge into your heart as it is necessary for you to know it."

      Those words were conveyed by the Blessed Virgin Mary in Message #566 on November 19, 1994 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart four days after her 565th message on the feast of Saint Albert the Great in which Our Lady beseeches her children to not seek answers anywhere but in prayer for the curious will run into trouble. That is why she begs her little ones to return to her Divine Son Jesus and to meditate on the Joyful Mysteries in preparation for Advent.

By giving we receive

      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".

"Money will not buy Heaven; but it will make friends for us that will help us when we fail. 'Inasmuch as you did it for the least of these My brethren, you did it for Me.' (Matthew 25: 40). Those who have been helped by our charity will lead us before the throne saying: 'This is he of whom we have spoken and who did so much for us in the life below.' "

Events Today in Church History

      On this date in 1622 Pope Gregory XV issued his papal bull Inscrutabili Divinae which established the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith in an effort to expedite and support the missionary effort of the Church worldwide. This Congregation today is the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples headed by Cardinal Josef Tomko.
