The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone

     After Peter's death, persecutions intensified but from the blood of martyrs the seeds of Christianity were planted as the Church edged to the end of the first century going strong and gathering more converts. As the rest of the Apostles and disciples died off, new blood took their place, emulating their counsel and example and paving the way to promulgating "the Truth, the Way, and the Life". Until September we continue to bring you the early chapters of this series in the event many of our readers have not had the opportunities to read them.

Nothing can destroy the Spirit!

The Miracle in Mexico!

     As we continue our summer retro marathon week II with our on-going series on Our Lady's visits to her children on earth. After focusing on Europe for the most part up until the sixteenth century, the Blessed Mother turned her attention to the New World and the then savage land of Mexico where the Aztec nation were sacrificing humans at an alarming rate. At the same time Europe was faltering and there were massive defections from the faith, Mary's visit and subsequent miracle of the tilma, that remains a miracle today, had a tremendous effect on the people and planted the seeds of countless conversions. Today we begin a two part feature on Guadalupe. For the fifth installment titled The end of sacrifice signals the importance of sacrifice: Our Lady of Guadalupe, click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.
