TOP CATHOLIC OF THE CENTURY COUNTDOWN
Number 14

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

The Pope's personal architect of an orthodox blueprint that will solidify the foundations of the Church well into the new millennium

    This weekend we bring you the 14th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the long-standing Prefect of the key Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This 72 year-old prelate has been with the Holy Father longer than any other Curial head and his longevity and like-mindedness has brought stability to the Holy See emanating to four corners of the earth.

Forget the turkey, our symbol of Thanksgiving should be the Holy Eucharist!

    In this weekend's editorial, we trace the true meaning of Thanksgiving and it dates well before the pilgrims, all the way back to the Last Supper! We also ask why we can't celebrate the advent of the new millennium by spending the evening with Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Surely there are enough out there to watch one hour with Him.

The real reason for Thanksgiving!

Getting to the heart of why we give thanks

   In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto takes a respite from her continuing story of "Kathy's Rosary Story" to focus on the blessings of Thanksgiving. She reminds us that we should be grateful to God for whatever He has chosen to bestow on us. No matter our lot in life, gratitude begets gratitude and we should express that gratitude whether it is in suffering for Him to merit graces for ourselves and others, or missions He has charged us with. Sister shows how this gratitude is synonymous with happiness - happiness of the heart For her column this weekend, A happy heart is a grateful heart, click on GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER

A GRATEFUL HEART IS A HAPPY HEART


The DAILY WORD

    Taken from the Gospel for the Mass on the First Sunday of Advent:

"Watch, therefore, for you do not know when the Master of the house is coming, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or early in the morning; lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all, 'Watch.' "

Mark 13: 35-37
