A breath of fresh air in the Church during the thirteenth century with the emergence of Blessed Gregory X, A man of justice.

     In the throes of malaise and low morale, the Church rallied from a vacancy of nearly three years without a supreme pontiff to elect a man who would restore peace to Europe and bring stability to the Holy See for a long time, enforcing measures at the Council of Lyons that would assure there would never be a lull in the election of a pope again. The story of Blessed Pope Gregory X is the subject matter of today's sixty-eighth installment in which we see the justice he wielded both as pope and as a holy man governing his flock.

Pope Blessed Gregory X: Restoring the peace and bringing unity with the Greeks at the 14th Ecumenical Council


To be people of Justice we must follow the Cardinal Virtues

     Today Our Lord imparts in Lesson #85 on THE CARDINAL VIRTUE OF JUSTICE the necessity to be just in all things, to not judge but rather to let God be the judge and treat all justly, sharing with all and fulfilling the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy. That is true Justice. Today's Lesson/Meditation is among 100 imparted to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in 1995 by Jesus and His Blessed Mother. Click on THE HIDDEN WAY

THE CARDINAL VIRTUE OF JUSTICE

Lesson Meditation #85
(Imparted on February 14, 1995 to the Hidden Flower by Our Lord)
Next Lesson/Meditation #86: THE CARDINAL VIRTUE OF FORTITUDE

Trusting in Jesus and living the messages without questioning them will help bring about God's Justice sooner

     That is the subject matter of today's editorial after we dispense of some in-house matters that may make it easier for all to receive the DAILY CATHOLIC. Once that is completed in the first few paragraphs, we launch into the meat of today's commentary on the problems with wanting to know too much and chasing messengers and messages for that purpose while forgetting what Jesus and His Holy Mother are trying to convey. For the Tuesday editorial, We can't always be sure what lies ahead, but we can be sure we're on the right track if we trust in Jesus and do all He asks, click on today's CATHOLIC PewPOINT

April 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I call you, through prayer, to open yourselves to God as a flower opens itself to the rays of the morning sun. Little children, do not be afraid. I am with you and I intercede before God for each of you so that your heart receives the gift of conversion. Only in this way, little children, will you comprehend the importance of grace in these times and God will become nearer to you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

Today we bring you the prayer honoring the marytrs we celebrate today and is taken from "My Daily Prayer," published by Confraternity of the Precious Blood.

May this happy festival of Thy Martyrs Nereus, Achilleus, Domitilla, and Pancras defend us from all evil, O Lord, and may it render us worthy of Thy service. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
