Whoever denies a truth of the Church let him be declared an anathema

     In the second of two parts on the Holy Father's Apostolic Letter AD TUENDAM FIDEM, Pope John Paul II asserts in no uncertain terms the consequences of anyone who veers from the teachings of Holy Mother Church. His words are an effort to stem the plethora of dissenters who don't feel they should be held accountable. Now, thanks to the Pope's Motu Proprio, they will have no choice but comply. For the second part, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

APOSTOLIC LETTER MOTU PROPRIO AD TUENDAM FIDEM OF THE HOLY FATHER JOHN PAUL II TO THE BISHOPS, CLERGY AND FAITHFUL OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH BY WHICH CERTAIN NORMS ARE INSERTED INTO THE CODE OF CANON LAW AND INTO THE CODE OF CANONS OF THE EASTERN CHURCHES.

NEXT WEEK: Part One of Apostolos Suos

We can't rush God, but satan would sure like us to in order to keep us impatient and confused

      In his fifth part on The subtleties of satan in his weekly column, Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. points out the subtle ways the father of lies confuses God's children, planting nefarious negatives that cause us to doubt and lose faith in our Holy Church. Satan loves to force us into hurrying, for the more we hurry, the longer we will wait for God's graces...maybe forever! For Father's column, click on HEARTS TO HEART TALK

July 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today, little children, I invite you, through prayer, to be with Jesus, so that through a personal experience of prayer you may be able to discover the beauty of God's creatures. You cannot speak or witness about prayer, if you do not pray. That is why, little children, in the silence of the heart, remain with Jesus, so that He may change and transform you with His love. This, little children, is a time of grace for you. Make good use of it for your personal conversion, because when you have God, you have everything. Thank you for having responded to my call.
