Monthly Message for
May 25th

Outdoor altar behind St. James Church

   Dear children! Today I call you, through prayer and sacrifice, to prepare yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Little children, this is a time of grace and so, again, I call you to decide for God the Creator. Allow Him to transform and change you. May your heart be prepared to listen to, and live, everything which the Holy Spirit has in His plan for each of you. Little children, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.

Medjugorje where Our Lady has...been appearing for 17 years, converting millions...in following all her Divine Son asks
     That is the key phrase of the popular "X-Files" series which debuts on the big screen this weekend. Just as this series chronicles phenomenal that do not seem human, Medjugorje has been an on-going daily series since June 24, 1981 exhibiting phenomena and fruits that can only be from the celestial regions - Heaven. In our third of four parts on this special segment on Medjugojre in honor of the Seventeenth Anniversary of the Apparitions in Bosnia the end of this month, we present the "Meaning of the Messages", words imparted by the Blessed Mother to convey her Divine Son Jesus' message to all His children the world over. We highlight the essence of what Our Lady wants of all of us. For the third part, click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.

Certain acts of faith deserve an anointing!
Father John Hampsch, C.M.F.     That is the essence of the column by Father John Hampsch, C.M.F. today on "Annointed Faith . part one" Father points out how there are times that call for a special annointing such as Saint Peter walking on water, and other times when it is not called for. He explains how it depends on the degree of the event in what determines an "anointing." For Father's forty-fourth installment of "Faith: Key to the Heart of God," click on KEYS TO LIVING GOD'S WILL

    The lost sheep returns: Norma McCorvey, originator of "Roe vs. Wade," to become a Roman Catholic
    Norma McCorvey to become Catholic      Father Frank Pavone, head of "Priests for Life" have won a significant soul in the battle against the culture of death with the announcement this week that Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" in the landmark Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, has not only become pro-life through her baptism by Operation Rescue head Flip Benham a few years ago, but now has expressed a strong desire to join the Roman Catholic Church through the guidance of Fr. Pavone. It is a modern story of the prodigal son (daughter) returning. For more, click on Revived from the culture of death

    United Nations taking Rome very serious as Kofi Annan visits Pope seeking support
    Kofi Annan seeks Pope's help     While all expected South African leader Nelson Mandela to visit the Pope, some were surprised at another visitor who had the Pope's ear yesterday afternoon. It was UN Secretary General Kofi Annan who met with the Holy Father and Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano yesterday. The subject was the International Court of Justice to be decided at a conference currently underway in Rome. Annan strongly respects the Holy Father's position and has been guided in the past by the Vatican's suggestions such as in Iraq. For more, click on UN and the Vatican.

    Doctors refuse to sing "Hello, Dolly" as they strongly condemn Cloning!
    AMA urged to oppose cloning     A special delegate committee for the American Medical Association strongly recommended opposing any efforts to clone human embryos despite the attempts by mavericks who promote this aberration of science. Their recommendation is expected to be argued on whether it will be incorporated into the "code of ethics" for the organization of nearly 300,000 doctors and medical specialists.

    Books galore, but not the word of God Readin', Ritin' n' Rithmetic is all for naught because there's no Rhyme nor Reason to omit God!
         That was the reasoning a 43-year-old used in reacting to her firing for talking about God at the urging of all her students as part of a "healing process" for a deceased classmate. But school officials, set in their robotic, culture of death ways methodically had her removed because she violated a tenet they hold sacred, while the Sacred is profaned. No wonder our schools are in so much trouble these days. For more, click on Atheistic Curriculum.
