The Measure of Medjugorje over the centuries

     In the first part of a four-part set on Medjugorje in honor of the Seventeenth Anniversary of the Apparitions in Bosnia the end of this month, we present a background on why the Blessed Mother chose this remote mountain village in which to bring the clarion of hope and conversion that would emanate out to all four corners of the earth and touch millions of hearts over a seventeen-year span and over 6,000 appearances. The roots of the faith in this region of the world go back well over a millennium and that is what we examine today. For the first part, titled "Prequel to the Apparitions of Medjugorje: 15 centuries of Catholicism and Conflicts!", click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.

The Origins: Causes and Effects


A bit of fresh air is needed!

     In today's editorial we attempt to clear the air of the stench that fumigates the moral filter of America. In this diatribe against the agenda's of the Clinton administration, and the not-so-subtle gay objectives, we air out the facts and expose the lies and secret agendas that go against the teachings of Christ. The only way to eradicate this putrid foul air is to use the fresh air of Jesus as we explain in "Time to break out the fresh air purifier of prayer!" in Wednesday's commentary.

Time to break out the fresh air purifier of prayer!

Michael Cain, editor


Real faith does not depend on signs, but often triggers them because of faith

     In his column today, Father John Hampsch, C.M.F. emphasizes the faith Jesus referred to in John 20: 29, after His disciple Thomas insisted that he first place his hands in the wounds of Our Lord before he would believe Christ had risen from the dead. True faith is believing even though we don't see. That is true "Supernatural Faith" which Father delineates on today.

Thursday, June 4, 1998


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.

PRAYERS & DEVOTION

Today's prayer is in honor of Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions and taken from the Opening Prayer of today's Holy Mass

Father, You have made the blood of the martyrs the seed of Christians. May the witness of Saint Charles and his companions and their loyalty to Christ in the face of torture inspire countless men and women to live the Christian faith.

PROVERB OF THE DAY

"Be not friendly with a hot-headed man, nor the companion of a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways, and get yourself into a snare."

Proverbs 22: 24-25
