Time to take Our Lady's words very, very seriously!

     For nearly 2000 years Jesus has sent His special envoy to His children - His very Own Blessed Mother to reiterate God's Will, but so few have actually listened, and fewer still have responded. Today we begin a retro marathon week of the early installments of this on-going megaseries on Our Lady's visits to earth as part of our summer program of bringing the reader up-to-date on the beginning chapters they may missed. Today we begin with chapter one: Time to take seriously the signs of the times!, click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.

Time to take seriously the signs of the times!

Installment One

A Padre with a purpose!

     Today the Church commemorates Blessed Padre Junipero Serra the Franciscan missionary who founded 21 Spanish missions in California, beginning with the first in San Diego at Mission de Alcala. In fact his feast day corresponds with the day he first arrived in San Diego in 1769. He established the site of the mission on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel - July 16 of the same year. For his story, the liturgy, readings and meditations today and tomorrow's Thirteenth Thursday in Ordinary Time, click on LITURGY FOR THE DAY.

Forty-Sixth Installment: Success Through Faith part one


     July is the month of the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS and this day is formerly the feast of of this sacrificial shedding our Our Lord's redeeming blood. Below is the prayer of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Almighty, everlasting God, Who didst appoint Thine only-begotten Son Redeemer of the world, and didst deign to be appeased by the shedding of His Blood; grant, we beseech Thee, that by our solemn service we may so honor what He paid as the price our Redemption, and by Its virtue be so defended here on earth from the evils of this present life, that we may forevermore enjoy Its fruit in Heaven. Throught the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
