The Prophetic Vision of John Bosco foresaw attempts to topple our present Pope!
In the second part of our on-going mega series on the Church today we focus on the insidious attempts to discredit Pope John Paul II and undermine his efforts to unite Holy Mother Church in sincere devotion to the Holy Eucharist and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which were stressed in the prophetic visions given to Saint John Bosco well over a century ago. Do not be deceived, there is a concentrated effort to bring the Holy Father down and with him all that Christ established. For how and who is masterminding this nefarious, clandestine plot, click on WHERE IS HOLY MOTHER CHURCH HEADING AS WE NEAR THE MILLENNIUM?
"Hosanna, He comes!"
Continuing with the launch yesterday of this series of special Meditative Lessons for Lent, today we bring you part two of the first chapter JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM as the scene is set for Christ's triumphant arrival in the Holy City where, less than a week later, He would be jeered and crucified rather than cheered and exalted.

Our Lady reaffirms the dangers to the Pope and her children!
> All the Blessed Mother foretold at Rue de Bac, La Salette, Lourdes, Fatima and elsewhere is being fulfilled and Our Lady confirms this to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in Messages One Hundred Twenty-Three and One Hundred Twenty-Four. The importance of these messages, imparted in 1991 affirm the events today in 1998. All private revelation messages presented in these pages have gone the astute scrutiny of a spiritual director, several theologians and have been submitted to two bishops. No problems resulted since all messages are in full compliance with the teachings of Holy Mother Church and Sacred Scripture. Click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."
Mass Appeal for Big Blue or
a Pentecost for your thoughts!
Even though Lent is less than a week away, the commentary today deals with the time after Easter - Pentecost to be exact and the news that the bishop of Lexington, Kentucky is going to rent out the big "blue" - Rupp Arena - for Mass on Pentecost Sunday. Sounds great until one digs further and discovers all other churches in the diocese are to be closed so that all will be funneled to the University of Kentucky. Something just doesn't sound right about this and we examine it in today's editorial "No Masses for the masses unless the masses mass for Mass?", click on Today's CATHOLIC PewPOINT

PRAYERS & DEVOTION
The prayer today is for An Offering of the Eucharist
God our Father, Your light of truth guides us to the way of Christ. May we who wish to follow Him reject what is contrary to His Gospel. We offer You the Eucharist to the glory of Your Name. May it make us pure and holy and bring us closer to eternal life. May we never fail to praise You for the life and salvation You give us for the Sacrament of the Altar.
PROVERB OF THE DAY"It is the Lord's blessing that brings wealth, and no effort can substitute for it." Proverbs 10: 22

Dear children! Today again I call all of you to prayer. Only with prayer, dear children, will your heart change, become better, and be more sensitive to the Word of God.
