Why the Sabbath reverted from Saturday to Sunday

     In the fourth installment of the Holy Father's Apostolic Letter DIES DOMINI, Pope John Paul II explains how the Resurrection of the Lord transfered the importance of the sabbath from Saturdays, as was the custom of the Old Covenant, to the New Covenant day of Sunday as we resume bringing you each day installments of this entire important document. To read the entire document, you can go to Dies Domini. For Chapter Two: The Day of the Risen Lord and of the Gift of the Holy Spirit, part one, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

     In his first part on The subtleties of satan in his weekly column, Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. outlines how and why the fallen angels seek company by trying to claim as many souls as they can to their agenda. Fortunately for us, we have a special ally to fend off the devil in the Blessed Mother whom God has placed in charge of His army. For Father's column, click on HEARTS TO HEART TALK
