All roads lead to Rome... For the Keys of the Kingdom can be locked and unlocked only from the Chair of Peter! It is called ex cathedra.

      In his column today, Pat Ludwa treats the subject of obedience to the Pope in taking on the dissidents who think they have a better idea and that the Holy Father is out of touch with the twentieth century. The problem is those dissenters are out of touch with the Will of God. For Pat's column Dissent doesn't add up , click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Dissent doesn't add up

When you knock on Heaven's door, Heaven always answers!

      We begin today a series on Prayer, something that is so misunderstood and complicated and really is so simple for it is merely "talking with God." We document where Our Lord and His Blessed Mother have repeatedly reminded us that all we need do is ask and it shall be given. But we're evidently too busy to pray or to even bother to ask for He is still waiting for our knock. It is especially fitting that we carry this during the month the world will celebrate the Eighteenth Anniversary of the Medjugorje Apparitions this month. For the first part of our series on Prayer today entitled, "Heeding the Heavenly Clarion: Pray! Pray! Pray!", click on WHERE IS HOLY MOTHER CHURCH HEADING AS WE NEAR THE MILLENNIUM?

The Forty-Sixth Clarion:

part one
"Heeding the Heavenly Clarion: Pray! Pray! Pray!"

"Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you."

Matthew 7: 7

"Our hearts are restless until they rest in You."

      The above is the famous quote of Saint Augustine. 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".

"Modern man has been humiliated: neither his proud expectations of progress nor of science have turned out as he hoped. Yet he has not quite reached the point of humbling himself. He is still imprisoned in the self, and able to see nothing else beyond. The psychoanalysts may be allowed to bore into his thoughts for a few years more; but the time is not far off when modern men will utter a frantic appeal to God to lift them from the empty cistern of their own egos."

"I solemnly tell you that in the near future many events will occur that will change the path of humanity."

      Those words from Our Lord were conveyed on September 11, 1994 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart wherein Jesus promises Refuge in His Sacred Heart and His Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart if we but ask and obey His Will. He brings this up because of the events about to unfold that will change the world as we know it, asking us to be vigilant and pray for we know not the day nor the hour. Our Lady prefaces her Divine Son's Message with her own on the feast of her birthday three days earlier in which she echoes much of what Jesus imparts and asks us to pray for that is the only way she can intercede. She also hints at an increase in Eucharistic phenomena in preparation for the great time of the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. For Messages #539 and #540, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

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.

"And Jesus, seeing that He had answered wisely, said to him, 'Thou art not far from the Kingdom of God.' And no one after that ventured to ask Him questions."
