Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini

Mother Frances Cabrini left us a legacy of love
as the first US citizen to be proclaimed a saint

    Today we bring you the 45th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first United States citizen to become a saint. It somewhat surprised us Mother Cabrini, founder of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart, was not rated higher but we attribute that to many equating her to the last century though most of her work was accomplished in the first decade and a half of this century. She has left a legacy of love with over 65 institutions throughout the western hemisphere. For more on the 45th selection, click on SAINT FRANCES XAVIER CABRINI

48.    Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini

"Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord"

    In this weekend's editorial, we tackle a sticky issue: the death penalty and how emotions can cloud our conscience and cause many pro-lifers to allow that atrocity while fighting vigorously against abortion and euthanasia. They forget that they must be fully committed to upholding life in all its stages and that includes crusading for the most vile of criminals and murderers. Not easy, but absolutely necessary as God's Laws dictate and as the Holy Father has asserted for so long. For the commentary, It takes a heroic heart to overcome the hurt and the hate!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT

It takes a heroic heart to overcome the hurt and the hate!

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.

   Taken from the Gospel for the Mass on the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time:
"The kingdom of Heaven is like a king who made a marriage feast for his son...Then he said to his servants, 'The marriage feast indeed is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy; go therefore to the crossroads, and invite to the marriage feast whomever you shall find."
Matthew 22: 1, 8-9
