Declaration of Dependence!

     On this weekend when we as a nation celebrate our independence from tyranny, maybe we should pause and ask if we are truly free of tyranny. Not just our nation, but within our Church. Too many have sought their own way, turning their back on the Pope and, by so doing, gone out on that ledge of lunacy. Thanks to our present Pontiff, the Church is stronger today because of "dependence" not independence.

We can never have enough protection!

     That is why, after bestowing the Rosary and the Scapular to His children, Jesus sent more protection and promises in the following centuries, specifically the 15 prayers and promises imparted to His faithful daughter Saint Bridget of Sweden. In addition we cover other saints and visionaries during these medieval times in our third installment of our retro week II marathon of bringing you the early chapters of this on-going megaseries. For the chapter More promises of protection! click on this weekend's THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITION

Just how much independence do we really have?

     In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto answers that question and more as she ties in this Independence Day with our dependence on God. As we grow older we realize more and more we aren't as independent as we might think, and thank God for it! For Sister's column, , click on GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER



     Following is the Prayer from the Preface of the Mass for Saint Thomas the Apostle
The risen Christ appeared to the apostles the first time when Thomas was absent, so that the incredulous apostle, having overcome his skepticism, would strengthen our faith by his gesture. When he saw the pierced hand of the Master, Thomas proclaimed Him his Lord and his God and was able to testify with extraordinary certitutde to the truth of the resurrection.
