Remembering Mother Teresa two years later

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa reminds us not to let the light flicker in our remembrance of Mother Teresa as we commemorate the second anniversary of her death this Sunday. He recalls how she became a light to so many, enlightening their hearts and souls as well as their bodies with nourishment that came from the heart - came from Christ Who Mother personified in her every deed. There was only one Power she bowed to and that Power empowered her to reach His children in the most touching way possible. Mother Teresa's total dedication has earned her a deserving rest in Heaven. But saints never rest so she will continue to intercede for all, especially the poor and downtrodden. For Pat's column Let us never forget Mother Teresa!, click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Let us never forget Mother Teresa!

Events that happened this day in Church History

    On this date 807 years ago in 1192, England's noble King Richard the Lionhearted signed a peace treaty with the Saladin representing the Saracens, effectively ending the Third Crusade in a peaceful mode. Alas, it wouldn't last and several more crusades would follow, resulting in the deaths of countless people on both sides, including the slaughter of many innocent children sent into battle.

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.

"But when Simon Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, 'Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.' For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish they had made; and so were also James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, 'Do not be afraid; henceforth thou shalt catch men.'"

Luke 5: 8-10
