Number 62:

Father Karl Rahner, S.J.

Famous Theologian and Vatican II's most influential peritus who many consider the architect of the "spirit of Vatican II"

   Today we bring you the 62nd person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Karl Rahner a Jesuit priest considered by many the most influential Theologian of the 20th century. We suspect his support came from voters with liberal leanings - yes, some liberals and modernists do read the DAILY CATHOLIC bless them - because Rahner, who was one of the most powerful periti at Vatican II, is believed to be the architect of the "spirit of Vatican II" introducing many of the radical, humanistic changes that have taken place in the liturgy and in implementation of programs that have watered down the doctrine of Trent.

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.
