Without Y2KJ the idea of Y2K is as scary as hell!

    In today's editorial, we vent on about the fact that so few truly know Jesus and the Faith He left us and that - Yes, 2 Know Jesus is to love Him and be obedient to His Holy Church. That is why Y2KJ is what we should be concerned about and not be fooled by all the rhetoric on Y2K which, we suspect, is being orchestrated by that great conjurer of fear and despair - the man from hades. For the editorial, Can you think of a better way to ring in the Jubilee? see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

Events Today in Church History

    On this date ten years ago six Jesuit missionary priests were shot down by El Salvadoran soldiers during a bloody coup in Central America. It was the beginning of a decade that would see more priests, religious and Catholic laity martyred worldwide than any other time in modern history. All part of the prophecies of Our Lady at Rue de Bac, Lourdes and La Salette as well as Fatima, Garabandal, Akita and Medjugorje.
