Medjugorje Monthly Message for July 25th
The Gospa's message for July
    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.

The impact of LaSalette moves the Church to action following Our Lady's dire messages
Our Lady of La Salette      As part of "retro summer" we continue to bring you the early chapters of our on-going series to allow readers to catch up with what they haven't read. Today we continue the four part segment on one of the most fascinating apparitions that have had repercussions in our time late in the nineties as we near the turn of the millennium - the pertinent messages of La Salette For the twelfth installment, The Apparitions of LaSalette: The Aftermath of LaSalette part three , click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.

With less than 500 days until the new millennium we cannot afford to dally in knowing and living our faith
     Today's editorial touches on the need for all loyal Catholics to get down to serious work through prayer and action in preparing to handle the influx of souls who will flock to the Church in response to the events that will happen within the next 500 days. What those natural and supernatural events will be, only God knows for sure, but we do know it will happen and we must be ready to accommodate those in need by building a solid foundation of traditional teaching within each parish. For today's commentary If we build it, they will come!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT

    Polish Government does about face, annexes land where crosses were placed at Auschwitz
    Will Government remove Catholic crosses?Jews happy with compromise for now     In a 180 degree turn from their statement last week in which they washed their hands of the controversy over the land outside Auschwitz, the Poland Government announced they will take over the plot of ground where the crosses have been constructed. While Jewish authorities take that to mean the crosses will be removed, Polish officials made no such commitment. Meanwhile, Catholic organizations vowed to keep the crosses there, honoring their fallen comrades. Stay tuned. For more, click on Auschwitz controversy

    Holy See and Jewish Leaders seek to ease tension over appointment of Galilee bishop
    Vatican reaching accord with Israel over bishopJewish protests have arisen over selection of Bishop to Galilee      While tensions continue on the Polish front, efforts are underway to ease the differences between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Vatican officials over the Holy See's appointment of a Melkite bishop to Galilee who may be sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. It is a sensitive issue with Rome since governments are allowed to interfere with ecclesiastical appointments, something the Church was saddled with greatly in the middle ages and caused great consternation.

    Modernist Priest whines, calls foul for ejection from Church because he wouldn't obey!
         What is in the psychological makeup of liberals that they just don't get it? As we document in our editorial today, a priest who was removed because he waivered from Catholic doctrine and teaching, is now crying foul and, rather than apologizing for leading the flock astray, he goes on the attack much like someone else who went on national TV Monday night not to apologize but to brush off his lies with "I mislead you" and it's none of your business. When it comes to the Church it is. The fired priest James Callan of Rochester, New York should realize that the sooner he and the liberal parishioners, who allowed his aberrations to continue, realize that - the better off the parish of Corpus Christi will be.

    Michigan Catholics condemn culture of death platform of suicide bill and Democratic candidate
    Will Michigan become the mecca for the culture of death?
         The state of Michigan has been the fertile ground for satan to sow the culture of death agenda through one of his hand-picked disciples Jack Kervorkian and now his attorney Geoffrey Fieger who somehow slipped through the primaries to run on the Democratic ticket for governor in the November elections. At issue is the suicide assistance platform which Michigan Catholics have strongly condemned as they strive to get out the word in an effort to defeat the referendum as well as Catholic-bashing candidate, the flippant Fieger.
