In the Year of the Holy Spirit, the Sanctifier's Flame of Love remains as strong as ever while the human spirit flickers in a world of darkness.

     As part of our summer service to readers who may not have had the opportunity to read the earliest chapters of our on-going megaseries on the Church today, we repeat the early installments bringing you the ninth installment in which we discuss the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, the Sanctifier, the Third Person of the Most Holy Trinity and how we don't depend on Him enough, including many of the bishops who give lip-service to the Holy Ghost, but fail to convey the vital importance and necessity of the Holy Spirit in the life of each person, family, parish and diocese as well as accurately conveying what the Holy Spirit truly inspired at Vatican II, not the liberal platform foisted upon us over the past thirty years which was man's agenda rather than God's.

Installment Nine

The darkness intensifies because hearts remain closed, while the mind controls our lives.

      That is the essence of the Blessed Mother Mary's words in her 181st and 180th messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today. Our Lady urges her children to open their hearts to her Divine Son Jesus for only in Him will they have a refuge for grave persecutions have begun and will continue until her Immaculate Heart triumphs. The darkness intensifies and Our Lady bemoans the fact so many remain cold to her words, opting instead to rationalize everything and look to the world for answers where the only true answers come from above.

     Today we celebrate the feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great, the 64th successor of Peter who contributed much to Holy Mother Church including a form of music appropriately called Gregorian Chant which, sadly, has been all but lost in most liturgies today. Tomorrow we commemorate FIRST FRIDAY with the Holy Mass for Ordinary Time. For the liturgy, readings and meditations and story of St. Gregory, click on LITURGY FOR THE DAY.

Friday, September 4, 1998


     Today's prayer is the Opening Prayer for the Mass in honor of Pope Saint Gregory the Great:

     Father, You guide Your people with kindness and govern us with love. By the prayers of Saint Gregory give the spirit of wisdom to those You have called to lead Your Church. May the growth of Your people in holiness be the eternal joy of our shepherds.

August 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I invite you to come still closer to me through prayer. Little children, I am your mother, I love you and I desire that each of you be saved and thus be with me in Heaven. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray until your life becomes prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.
