The impact of LaSalette moves the Church to action following Our Lady's dire messages

     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.

The Apparitions of LaSalette: The Aftermath of LaSalette
part three

Installment Twelve

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.

If we build it, they will come!

Father, You chose the priest John Eudes to preach the infinite riches of Christ. By his teaching and example help us to know You better and live faithfully in the light of the gospel.

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.
