Some of the greatest news you'll ever hear outside of Public Revelation:

COUNTDOWN TO THE TRIUMPH!

     Just before Saint Bernadette Soubirous, the visionary of Lourdes, died on April 16, 1979 at Nevers, France she wrote down five prophecies the Blessed Mother had given her and gave them to the new Holy Father Pope Leo XIII. Shortly before the turn of the century the five pages of prophecies were lost. It wasn't until just recently within this last year that they have been found and what they reveal ties in with all Our Lady has been imparting with a tremendous exclamation mark that may cause one to do cartwheels between prayers!!! Today, in the second part of our editorial we bring you the specifics revealed here for the first time ever. We only ask you to pray on it and if it moves you, please pass it on to whomever you know. Spread the word and help launch a prayer crusade that will see our beloved Holy Father Pope John Paul II lead us into what Our Lady calls the "Second Golden Age of Mankind."

Oh what a Triumph it will be!!!

Michael Cain, editor


Mobilizing the Laity through Prayer Crusades have been the most effective means of preserving Holy Mother Church in recent times

     In the sixty-ninth installment of our megaseries on the state of the Church Today we trace the lay efforts of a few outstanding souls who mobilized the laity to help save Rome when first the French Revolution threatened to quash Catholicism and then the threat of terror from Napoleon Bonaparte in the early part of the nineteenth century. From these seeds would come great oaks of faith throughout France and many parts of Europe, solidifying the Church. Two woman, two Roman housewives blessed with the acceptance of God's Will - Blessed Elizabeth Mora and Blessed Anne Marie Taigi answered the call and together not only formed a prayer crusade but personally convinced Pope Pius VII that he was walking into a trap set by the ravenous wolves within the Vatican curia. Their involvement saved the Church of Rome and strengthened the Holy See from that point on. For the rest of the story, click on WHERE IS HOLY MOTHER HEADING AS WE NEAR THE MILLENNIUM?

The Thirty-First Clarion: Mobilizing the Laity
part twenty-nine:

"I am with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world."

Matthew 28: 20

PRAYERS & DEVOTION

Today's prayer is in honor of Saint Matthias, Apostle, and is taken from the Preface of the Mass - the Opening Prayer

Father, in order that the number of the apostles would be complete, You cast a special glance of love on Matthias, who was already introduced to the following of Christ and to His mysteries. His voice was in accord with that of the other eleven witnesses of the Lord and he announced to all the world that Jesus of Nazareth is truly risen and the kingdom of Heaven has been proclaimed to all men.


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.
