Holy Father stresses the foundation of faith and reason with his encyclical Fides et Ratio

     On the feast of one of the first women Doctors of the Church Saint Teresa of Jesus, the Holy Father issued his 13th encyclical on the foundations of faith and reason entitled Fides et Ratio. Today we begin to bring you this lengthy and important encyclical in installments spread out over several issues. The first installment covers the Introduction titled "Know yourself." For those wanting to read the entire encyclical, go to Fides et Ratio For the first installment, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.


NEXT WEEK: Chapter 1: The Revelation of God's Wisdom: Jesus, revealer of the Father.

We may know when our feelings are hurt, but not when others' may be hurt

     That is an important point brought up by Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. who continues on the subject of Reconciliation today in the second of a three parter. He emphasizes how honesty is the best way to communicate our feelings to others for that often breaks down the walls that are put up because someone has been hurt. He also talks about how we need to be reconciled not only with others, but also with ourselves and then we can be truly reconciled with God. For Father's column, click on HEARTS TO HEART TALK

RECONCILIATION - a price to pay! part two

Though the world has always scoffed and laughed at the Almighty, God will have the last laugh.

     That is basically what the Blessed Mother is saying in messages 238 and 239 in October 1992. She reminds us that the evil one is furious at those who are faithful for they are a serious threat to his plans to deceive all. Only by our commitment to all she conveys from her Divine Son Jesus can we hope to defeat the powerful lucifer and make ready for the long-awaited Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. That commitment means turning away from the world and embracing prayer and sacrifice in atonement for man's sins and to storm Heaven in hopes of mitigating much that is to come. This was imparted in 1992 and we strongly believe much has been mitigated through dedication to her cause but we cannot grow complacent. Click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."
