John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Catholicism and Camelot - two last bastions of decency in a society that would soon deteriorate greatly in morality

   Today we bring you the 63rd person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States whose three year term gave hope to so many, but on November 22, 1963 greatly dampened that hope with assassin bullets in Dallas. His shocking death in 1963 ended the days the media dubbed "Camelot" and opened the floodgates of humanism and the seven deadly sins. While many voted for him purely because he was the first Catholic President ever, the true person who should have been considered for this honor was his mother Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, a modern Saint Monica.

Forgiveness begins through the cross and ends in the heart

    In today's editorial, we refer to the scriptural readings from the past two Sundays and how well they tie in with the Feast of the Triumph of the Holy Cross today and tomorrow's commemoration of Our Lady of Sorrows. They also are very, very applicable to the situation in the Church and the world today and we must all imitate Jesus and obey His Vicar on earth who asks all to forgive and seek forgiveness in preparation for cleansing ourselves as we enter the new millennium which begins in just over one hundred days.

August 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Also today I call you to give glory to God the Creator in the colors of nature. He speaks to you also through the smallest flower about His beauty and the depth of love with which He has created you. Little children, may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water from a spring. May the wheat fields speak to you about the mercy of God towards every creature. That is why, renew prayer of thanksgiving for everything He gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
