A bouquet of blessings for America with the arrival of the Patroness of the Missions

    In today's editorial, we inform readers of a special 100 day tour taking place throughout the country. No, it isn't a U-2 concert, or the Rolling Stones or any other rock or country-western group, but rather a special gift from the Carmelites who have organized this tour in cooperation with the NCCB. It is the world tour of the first class relic bones of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus which will be in America until the end of January. This special visit by the Patroness of Missions will span the second and third millenniums in a very special visit to major communities throughout the U.S. We detail some of the sites where her reliquary will be and point out its timely importance to the faithful. For the editorial, Truly, the Patroness of the Missions is on a special mission! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

Truly, the Patroness of the Missions is on a special mission!

   Dear children! Today again I call you to become carriers of my peace. In a special way, now when it is being said that God is far away, He has truly never been nearer to you. I call you to renew prayer in your families by reading the Sacred Scripture and to experience joy in meeting with God Who infinitely loves His creatures. Thank you for having responded to my call.

'But the Lord said to him,' "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but within you are full of robbery and wickedness. Foolish ones! did not He Who made the outside make the inside too? Nevertheless, give that which remains as alms; and behold, all things are clean to you."

Luke 11: 39-41
