The only place to spend New Years Eve!

    In today's editorial, we discuss the speculation of when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart will occur in the new millennium. Our consensus: it's fruitless to try to spin our wheels in pinpointing the time and the only fruitful thing we can all do to hasten it is to trust in God and pray. And that brings us to the crux of the article, to usher in the new millennium with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. It beats the hub-bub and hectic New Year's Eve bashes that are not only so expensive but tiring and even dangerous. We want peace so badly in this world so why not pray for peace in the most peaceful of settings - before the Tabernacle of the Holy of Holies.

"Could you not watch one hour with Me?"

All love springs out of goodness

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Without a reaching-out toward goodness, there would be no love; neither love of country, nor of pleasures, of friend, nor of spouse. Through loving, each heart tries to acquire a perfection which it lacks, or to express the perfection it already owns. All love springs out of goodness, for goodness, by its nature, is lovable to man."
