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

Pronouncements by Episcopal Conferences do not always contain the characteristics of the Universal Magisterium

     We continue our multi part segment on the Holy Father's Apostolic Letter to the Bishops of the world on Episcopal Conferences entitled APOSTOLOS SUOS. In his Motu Proprio, Pope John Paul II defines the role of Episcopal Conferences, explaining their origins and importance in the overall governing of the Church. As he concludes this letter, he warns against one bishop interfering with the work of another bishop in another diocese if it does not involve faith and morals For the final part of Apostolos Suos, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.

HIS HOLINESS POPE JOHN PAUL II APOSTOLIC LETTER ISSUED MOTU PROPRIO ON THE THEOLOGICAL AND JURIDICAL NATURE OF EPISCOPAL CONFERENCES (1)

NEXT WEEK: Part Six of Apostolos Suos

We go wrong when we try to make sense of God's mind. Rather, let us surrender to His Heart.

     Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. begins today with a short series on surrendering to the will of God through praying with and from our heart. He points out that this whole process got turned topsy turvy when satan lured the first parents away from God in the Garden of Eden. Now, he asserts, it is time to turn things back the way they were meant to be. For Father's column, click on HEARTS TO HEART TALK

Our thrust into life is not to be with Thought, but with Surrender part one


Do not grow anxious over the signs but heed their meaning and seek refuge in the Immaculate and Sacred Hearts

      That is the essence of the two messages brought to you today from the Blessed Mother Mary to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, as Our Lady reiterates the need to realize the times are treacherous and we will survive only if we are rooted in the faith, obedient to her Divine Son's Church and securely tucked beneath her Immaculate Mantle. Our Lady also warns all not to worry about the needs of the body, but rather be concerned - very concerned - for the welfare of the soul.
