Number 34:

Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C.

He proved how the family that prays together, stays together by taking the Rosary universal as the "Rosary Priest"

    Today we bring you the 34th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., the beloved Irish-born "Rosary Priest" who came into living rooms for decades with the Family Rosary Crusade as families huddled together before the advent of high technology and the break-up of the family unit. He died in 1992 but his legacy lives on as the Rosary is enjoying a renaissance thanks in large part to what he promulgated. Those fruits would not die. The cause for his canonization has been introduced in Rome. For more on the 34th selection, click on FATHER PATRICK PEYTON, C.S.C.

34.    Father Patrick Peyton


Faith is more than a word, faith means trusting in God, not man!

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa treats the subject of beliefs - simply put: faith - and asks in whom do we trust - God or man? Too often society over the centuries has tried to rely on man and dismiss God as a superstitious nonentity. But when we place our trust in man, we get confusion, anger, turmoil, hate, jealousies, greed, even war and bloodshed. Pat shows how throughout nearly 2000 years all those who have placed their "faith" in man and the world have perished into oblivion while His Church, which is the true Faith based on God, continues and grows stronger. There must be something to this "Faith in God" thing, he rationalizes, showing through Sacred Scripture that this indeed is true as revealed in Divine Revelation.

Faith is meaningless if not rooted in God

September 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   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 answered him and said, 'Hypocrites! does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or ass from the manger, and lead it forth to water? And this woman, daughter of Abraham as she is, whom satan has bound, lo, for eighteen years, ought not she to be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?'"

Luke 13: 15-16
