Holy Father reinforces Humanae Vitae to Western U.S. Bishops

     On the feast of the most recent Doctor of the Church Saint Therese of the Child Jesus the Holy Father gathered the bishops from the Western United States including controversial liberal Cardinal Roger Mahony and, in no uncertain terms, but lovingly encouraged these prelates to defeat the culture of death by heeding the wisdom of Humanae Vitae which is the source of virtue and disregard for it has led to a deterioration of morals and values, especially in the prosperous United States.

How many realize we have it better than the angels?

     That question above may seem far-fetched until one reads today's column by Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. who treats the subject of Reconciliation today in the first of a short two parter. He emphasizes how when it comes to reconciliation there was no turning back for the fallen angels once they crossed the line, but, in God's infinite mercy and love, He has given man the opportunity and gift of reconciliation - reconciliation with Him, with our fellow man, and with ourselves.

RECONCILIATION - a price to pay! part one

"I solemnly tell you that the natural disasters shall come."

     Should we be surprised at the storms, hurricanes, floods, fires, droughts, crop failures, cold spells and earthquakes that have visited our country the last few years? Our Lady has prophesied they would occur and why. The pertinent words from the Blessed Mother Mary to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart on the headline quote is just a sample of what Our Lady foretells in today's two messages from the 632 she imparted between September 20, 1990 and the feast of Corpus Christi in 1995. For messages number 228 and 229, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

September 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today, I call you to become my witnesses by living the faith of your fathers. Little children, you seek signs and messages and do not see that, with every morning sunrise, God calls you to convert and to return to the way of truth and salvation. You speak much, little children, but you work little on your conversion. That is why, convert and start to live my messages, not with your words but with your life. In this way, little children, you will have the strength to decide for the true conversion of the heart. Thank you for having responded to my call
