Feast of Saint Paul of the Cross, Priest and Religious Founder

Do our souls have room in the inn?

      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".

"There is an estrangement of the human heart from God, as conscience bears witness. However much room there be for other guests in the soul, the Bethlehem story is still true: 'There is no room in the inn.' It is more often in souls that recognize their own misery and sinfulness that He is given room, as it was the stable rather than the inn which welcomed Him. What we call fate is actually opening the door, for He Who knocks never comes empty-handed."

September 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today again I call you to become carriers of my peace. In a special way, now when it is being said that God is far away, He has truly never been nearer to you. I call you to renew prayer in your families by reading the Sacred Scripture and to experience joy in meeting with God Who infinitely loves His creatures. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"Blessed are those servants whom the Master, on His return, shall find watching. Amen I say to you, he will gird Himself, and will make them recline at table, and will come and serve them. And if He comes in the second watch, and if in the third, and finds them so, blessed ar those servants!"

Luke 12: 37-38
