TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY Countdown
Number 56:

Lech Walesa

Poland's Solidarity Leader who remained even more in solidarity with Christ by not compromising his Catholic beliefs

    Today we bring you the 56th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Lech Walesa, the Polish leader of Solidarnosc or Solidarity who credits the liberation of Poland from the communist hammer and sickle to Pope John Paul II. He served as President of Poland from 1990 to 1995 but lost in his bid for re-election when he would not compromise his Catholic ideals and the Church's stance on abortion. At only 56, we have a feeling he will resurface in the next millennium and save Poland from its folly of leaning toward the culture of death. For more on the 56th selection, click on LECH WALESA

Agape Love is under attack!

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa laments the sad depths that society has fallen because mankind seeks its own selfish will rather than the Divine Will. The children the Father created reject God's Word and embrace the prince of darkness, reeling in the black hole of the culture of death while reaching for the false icons of lust and temporal pleasures that are fleeting and deadly. Pat sees the love which Christ taught being morphed into the monstrous creed of erotica and sin, plummeting man deeper into the abyss, and warns us all, exposing the hidden agendas of Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion groups as well as dissident groups within the Church who are not what they seem to be but rather wolves in sheep's clothing.

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.

The DAILY WORD

"Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was being done by Him and was much perplexed, because it was said by some, 'John has risen from the dead;' and by some, 'Elias has appeared;' and by others, 'One of the prophets of old has risen again.' But Herod said 'John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?' And endeavored to see Him."

Luke 9: 7-9
