Growing extent of Bishops' activities raises questions in the realm of theological and pastoral concerns by the Holy Father in his Apostolic Letter Apostolos Suos

     We continue our 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 and lists policies established by the Church over the centuries. For the second part, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

NEXT WEEK: Part One of II. Apostolos Suos


When we imitate Mary in her humility, we disarm satan of his power to control us.

      In his seventh and final 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 exemplifying all she imparts by living her messages then we imitate Our Lady's virtues and can better fend off the evil one because we are doing what her Divine Son Jesus asks of each of His children.

PRAYERS & DEVOTION

     While the feast of Saint Raymond Nonnatus is usurped by Ordinary Time in the new liturgy, it is nevertheless his feast day today and therefore we present this prayer in his honor:


August 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I invite you to come still closer to me through prayer. Little children, I am your mother, I love you and I desire that each of you be saved and thus be with me in Heaven. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray until your life becomes prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.
