Appreciation of the Powers of the Sovereign Pontiff

    This weekend we continue with our new series in the search to uncover the great treasuries of the Church contained in the great Deposit of Faith. We continue with the Vicar of Christ and today deal with the powers bestowed on him by Jesus Christ and the powers gained over the centuries and passed down through tradition.

Events this weekend in Church History

    On Friday in 1622 Shogun warriors killed 205 Japanese and European martyrs, including Blessed Father Sebastian Kimura and Blessed Lucy de Freitas, because they refused to abandon their faith. Then, as now in East Timor and the Sudan, Catholics are dying for the faith because they answer to a Higher Power.

SIMPLY SHEEN: You can't take it with you!

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminarydid so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"The full economic life is no barrier to a break with the tradition of home, country and religion. Sometimes the abundance of the material leads men to believe that happiness is to be found without, rather than within."


    This weekend we observe the Twenty-third Friday and Saturday in Ordinary Time plus the Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The only variance from Ordinary Time is Saturday's observance of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday. For the liturgies, readings, meditations and vignette for Saturday, click on LITURGY
