Persistence pays off for Saint Augustine and Holy Mother Church as God rises up a spiritual giant to fend off Heresy

     Aiding the Supreme Pontiffs fight the great heresy of Arianism, Albigensianism and Manachaeism was one of the greatest Doctors of the Church in the person of late-comer Saint Augustine who had enveloped these heresies before his conversion and found them wanting. What better man to enlighten the faithful than one whose mother - Saint Monica - had prayed incessantly for his own enlightening? His entrance on the western scene proved fruitful for Rome as well as many other saints and fathers of the Church including the seven pontiffs covered during this time. It was also the beginning of secular interference in meddling with papal matters.

Whenever you get that sinking feeling, think about the tragedies surrounding the Titanic and pray!

     In today's editorial, we tie-in the release of the hit film "Titanic" with the strange circumstances that haunt that fated ocean-liner and the on-going battles between Protestants and Catholics in Ireland. Little known facts are revealed which points to the fact that man pushed the envelope too far in taunting God and His Holy Church. With today's editorial, entitled It's a Titanic truth that without prayer, we haven't got a prayer of staying afloat!, we return to our regular rotation of Tuesday and Friday editorials.

It's a Titanic truth that without prayer, we haven't got a prayer of staying afloat!
