Pope emphasizes the necessity and value of example in the formation of Catholic youth

     In the second part of Pope John Paul II's ad limina talk to a group of United States bishops from the upper midwest which included the esteemed Cardinal Francis George, OMI on the Vigil of Pentecost, the Holy Father emphasizes the vital importance of setting the example as responsible, virtue-filled role models for the Catholic youth today in our schools and through a dedicated catechetical program that becomes a "labor of love." Because of the importance of his words for American youth and our Catholic schools system both primary, secondary and university level, we bring you the second of three parts on this important delivery.

part two

If there is no humility, then there is hardness of heart!

     In his first part on Meekness of Heart in his weekly columns, Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. shows how Jesus' words ring so true today, especially His words in Matthew 11: 28-30 of which Father takes his title for this short series on meekness of heart. Christ has promised us that if we take up our crosses and follow Him, He will lead the way and, though we may stumble, we will always be able to get back up with His help through the graces He bestows - that is the yoke He gives us: grace, and from these Heavenly gifts we learn from Him and realize we cannot bear the yoke if our heart is hard.

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.
