It's refreshing to find a candidate committed to the cause of Pro-life no matter the consequences

     Just one more week of banal ads and rhetoric leading up to the elections on November 3rd and we've all had just about enough of the poppycock most of the politicos and spinmeisters are feeding us. It's enough to lose faith in mankind, but there are some out there who are "keepin' the faith" and in today's editorial we focus on one in particular - the Republican candidate for governor in California - Dan Lungren - a solid Catholic who is not ashamed of his faith and lives it both in his personal life and in his gubernatorial campaign, espousing pro-life in the face of a barrage of negative campaigning by pro-aborts. For today's commentary, entitled A goal that's worth achieving!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

A goal worth achieving.

Revolt within the Franciscans further alienates Italy from France as Pope John XXII entrenches the Holy See at Avignon

      With King Philip IV of France, the maker of Popes, dead, power returned to the papal office with the election of the elderly bishop of Avignon who surprised everyone by serving for 18 years and revamping the entire curia, cleaning up after all his predecessors and two years of vacancy in the papacy. Though he was no puppet Pope, and expressed interest in returning the Holy See to Rome, he relented when politics forced his hand and a new enemy surfaced in the new German emperor Louis of Bavaria who rallied dissident Franciscans to his cause. The result was the selection of Italian antipope Nicholas V which further cemented the true Pope in France. Thus he began plans for a permanent Papal Palace at Avignon.

Pope John XXII Entrenching the Holy See at Avignon

Installment Seventy-eight

I solemnly tell you that for each soul who willingly flies into the arms of God, satan snatches a thousand souls away by his trickery, deceit and poison.

      Those are the shocking words from Our Lady in the 252nd and prefaced in the 251st message from November of 1992 conveyed to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart. Mary points out that the priests and shepherds will be held accountable for their flocks and for each one that is lost they will have to account for why. That is why she urges all her priest-sons to heed her Divine Son Jesus, be obedient to His Vicar on earth Pope John Paul II and strive to live the Gospel, not just give it lip service without preparing the faithful through a compliment of prayer and education.

Events Today in Church History

     Today is the 506th anniversary of the day when Christopher Columbus first set foot on Cuban soil, declaring it for Spain and Holy Mother Church. The Faith has remained strong on this island ever since, even during the despot years of Fidel Castro and has shown signs of resurgence after Pope John Paul II's visit to the tiny island this past January.

October 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I call you to come closer to my Immaculate Heart. I call you to renew in your families the fervor of the first days when I called you to fasting, prayer and conversion. Little children, you accepted my messages with open hearts, although you did not know what prayer was. Today, I call you to open yourselves completely to me so that I may transform you and lead you to the heart of my Son Jesus, so that He can fill you with His love. Only in this way, little children, will you find true peace - the peace that only God gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
