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.

Our Lord emphasizes that the Ten Rules of the Old Covenant are not mere suggestions for the New Covenant! Ten Rules are the Ten Commandments
THE HIDDEN WAY      The 91st Lesson/Meditation imparted by Jesus to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which is one in a series of 100 Meditative Lessons imparted to her and this one deals with the Ten Commandments and Christ's insistence on heeding these ten rules - the gateway to salvation. He emphasizes that these are not suggestions, but commandments that must be heeded and we cannot compromise when it comes to God's laws no matter what the political correctness charlatans might offer in its place.

The cradle of courage is in the lap of the Holy Father as he ventures into the land of Von Trapp and evades the traps set there.
     Today's editorial deals with the discord and dissent so prevalent in the advanced, prosperous countries such as America and Western Europe and how, no matter how much the modernists cry foul or clamor for change, Pope John Paul II holds his ground just as he did this past weekend when he ventured into the eye of the storm in Austria.

    US Bishops to Hollywood and Media: Enough's enough, rein in the violence and sex!
    US Bishops cracking down on violence on TV and movies     During their semi-annual meeting, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops vowed to increase their role in fighting the increased violence and sex in the media. They urged the movers and shakers in the media and Hollywood to curb the all-too graphic portrayal which takes away from the value of their contribution to society. Bishop Robert Lynch called it the "Magna Carta, a foundational document" that could go far in working closely with concerned Hollywood directors, actors, actresses and executives who make the decisions. This was confirmed by Cardinal William Keeler who has already been in contact with some of the principals. For more, click on Curb the Violence.

    Opus Dei Irish Judge who stood firm against Abortion initiatives, settles with Irish government.
    Irish Judge gets fair settlement      Though he lost his job for having the courage to stand against abortion initiatives, an Irish Judge, who is a fervent member of the Opus Dei conservative movement, has settled legal action with the Irish government that ousted him. He likened his stand as the same he would take had he been a judge during the Nazi atrocities. For more, click on Convictions of an Irish Judge.

    Turin Cardinal who was caught up in Shroud controversy dies at age of 84. Caretaker Cardinal of the Shroud dies in Turin     It would seem, just like Hollywood stars, cardinals also die in threes. Early last week it was Cardinal Agostino Casaroli, former Vatican Secretary of State, and late last week Cardinal John Carberry of Saint Louis. This week it is retired Cardinal Anastiaso Ballestrero, the retired Archbishop of Turin who was in charge of the Shroud of Turin when it was revealed that the shroud might be a fraud, not dating back to Christ but rather the middle ages. Since then reputable tests have greatly found flaws in those decisions and many believe it truly is the Shroud that our Savior was wrapped in. For more, click on Shroud Cardinal curator dies.
