The prophecies of Saint Nilus from centuries ago indicate how loyalty has flown the coop today! |
In examining the aspect of loyalty to Holy Mother Church, we come upon the agenda of the New Age movement which over the past two centuries - particularly the last forty years - has lured so many of the faithful away through the clever wiles of the evil one who masquerades the truth just as prophesied by Saint Niles or Nilus who lived to be 95.

"Let the ego of your soul rule and you shall see with the Light of Truth."
Those are the words of the Blessed Mother Mary in her 159th and 160th messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today. Our Lady implores her children to be aware of the half-truths spread by satan, and to remain loyal to her Divine Son and she promises she will protect us all beneath her Immaculate and protective mantle of love. The times are going to get increasingly worse as the years go by from a moral, conscience scope and and we need to be free of sin and keep our lamps lit for we know not the hour.

Saint Peter's Tomb getting face lift for Jubilee 2000
The celebrated Tomb of Saint Peter, Apostle and first Pope - the "Petrus" or "rock" upon which Christ built His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church - will be a major focal point during the Jubilee 2000 celebration thanks to a restoration process being undertaken to make the tomb, which sits directly in front in the crypt deep below the main altar of St. Peter's Basilica, more accessible and easier to see for the millions of pilgrims expected to pass by it.

When the Holy Father visits Austria in a few days, will the hills be alive with the sound of music or dissension?
Many officials are holding their breath in anticipation of the Holy Father's visit this weekend to Austria for the beatification of three Austrians. But they are not apprehensive about the ceremonies but more the reactions of the people who are divided in their obedience to the Church and the fallout of the former cardinal of Vienna whom the Pope replaced with Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn.

Croatia on agenda for Pope in October
The Vatican announced on Wednesday that the Pope will be traveling to Split in Croatia for the occasion of the city's 1,700th anniversary. He will also beatify Cardinal Alojzije Stepanic, who was imprisoned in communist labor camps. With his announced visit, the speculation arises once more whether the Holy Father will make a helicopter side-trip south to Our Lady's shrine in Medjugorje where he has expressed interest in visiting.

Knights of Columbus remain strong bastion of Church and top all organizations in donations
The Knights of Columbus fraternal order, long considered the last great bastion in the Roman Catholic Church, have topped all other organizations internationally for donations to the Church and her causes. Supreme Commander Virgil Dechant announced that the Knights collected over 107 million dollars in 1997, bringing the total to well over 800 million dollars given away to charities for the Church over the past ten years. Dechant's report also revealed that KC members contributed over 50 million man-hours in time. For more, click on KC generosity.
