June, the month of the Sacred Heart, is the perfect time to say "Yes" to Jesus and the Church

     We conclude the three part discourse by Pope John Paul II on "Say 'Yes' to the Church and you say 'Yes' to Jesus" today as the Holy Father syllogizes how man's own free will taints their view and opinion of the Church and ultimately they reject Christ and His teaching by doing so. Even though this was delivered in 1991, the Pope's words are just as pertinent today, if not more so in this month of the Sacred and Immaculate Heart where obedience to Christ is synonymous with obedience to His Holy Church. To read the Holy Father's words, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

Part Three

Obedience bears the greatest fruit!

      In his conclusion of his short series on "Let us clutch to our Faith and move on" Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. reiterates what the Holy Father emphasizes above on obedience to the Church. He also elaborates on the necessity to stop bickering and pull together to spread the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and allow the Holy Spirit to imbue us with His graces and gifts which is especially meaningful the day after Pentecost.

May 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   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.

Today's prayer is in honor of Saint Justin, and is taken from the Opening Prayer of the Mass

In the early days of Your Church You chose Justin the martyr so that by his writings he could expound to Jews and pagans the mysteries of the prophets and the teaching of the apostles. Fearlessly he defended the gospel of Christ before the rulers. He faithfully completed his ministry, after bearing witness to You before the people, and You gave him the privilege of shedding his blood in order to receive the crown of eternal glory in the luminous company of martyrs.
