All the bishops in union with the Bishop of Rome constitute a collegiallity which no individual bishop can divert from

     Today we begin a seven part segment on the Holy Father's Apostolic Letter to the Bishops of the world on Episcopal Conferences entitled APOSTOLOS SUOS. In his Motu Proprio, Pope John Paul II asserts in no uncertain terms that all bishops must be in union with Rome and their particular conferences and cannot go out on their own without full approval from the Holy See. He cites the way Jesus set up His Church and appointment of His apostles. For the first part, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

In our constant struggles with the devil, lean heavily on the Woman Clothed with the Sun - the Blessed Mother of God

     In his sixth part on The subtleties of satan in his weekly column, Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. points out the vital role of the Woman clothed with the sun - the Blessed Virgin Mary and how, relying on her through prayer and all she has imparted, we can offset the wiles of the evil one who is so clever in his subtle ways of leading us astray, and be drawn ever closer to Mary's Divine Son Jesus.

     Today's Prayer is taken from the Opening Prayer for the Mass honoring Saint Bartholomew, Apostle:


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.
