We honor the Little Flower

     On this first day of October we celebrate a very special Saint - Saint Therese of Lisieux also known as the Saint Therese of the Child Jesus for she herself was a child, dying of Tuberculosis at the tender age of 24. But she was also totally aligned to the Will of God and in her simplicity, one of the wisest of saints, evidenced by Pope John Paul II proclaiming her a Doctor of the Church two years ago. Friday is another great feast - the Feast of the Guardian Angels. For today and tomorrow's liturgy, meditations and vignettes on these feasts, click on LITURGY FOR THE DAY.

Novena to the Little Flower

To be prayed nine days in a row

O Little Therese of the Child Jesus, please pick for me a rose from the Heavenly Gardens and send it to me as a message of love.
O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God today to grant the favors I now place with confidence in your hands...
(Here mention specific requests)
St. Therese, help me to always believe as you did, in God's great love for me, so that I might imitate your "Little Way" each day. Amen.

Traveling down Interstate 2000 toward the new millennium we must watch our speed limit and be alert for the signs

      In our third part of the series on SIGNS OF GOD'S MERCY AND JUSTICE we focus on the freeway toward the new millenniu, one we like to call I-2000 the Jubilee Highway. But it isn't always smooth sailing on this freeway for it can become gridlocked with temptations, vice, and force us into the slow lane that might veer us off the main road and into a detour if we are not concentrating on where we are going and how we are getting there. The only way is through prayer and striving to live God's Will by obedience to His commandments and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

part three:

"Amen I say to you, unless you turn and become like little children, you will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven."

Matthew 18: 3

The New Ark has been sent to guide us through the rough seas and safely to the harbor of God's grace and Heart.

      That is an important aspect of the Blessed Mother Mary's words in the 211th and 212th messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today. Our Lady urges her children to return to the refuge of her Immaculate Heart and her Divine Son Jesus' Most Sacred Heart in light of the coming events which will rock our world as she has been foretelling since La Salette on.

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
